Dangerous Moves & How To Boop

Covers Itself In Tough Frost Armor

Covers Itself In Tough Frost Armor

The Boreus will encase itself in highly-durable frozen armor once in a while. This armor is immune to all damage and requires a special mechanic for you to break through it.

Defeat Minions & Gain Boosted Hits To Break Armor

Defeat Minions & Gain Boosted Hits To Break Armor

When the Boreus is in its frozen armor, it'll summon small minions to fly around and attack you. Defeating these small mobs will give you a buff that will allow you to hit Boreus with 300 damage per buff stack regardless of weapon used. Defeat as many as you can and hit the Boreus to break through its frost armor.

Defeat Rounder Minions First To Avoid AoE Damage

Defeat Rounder Minions First To Avoid AoE Damage

When the Boreus summons its minions, aim to bring down the rounder ones first. These explode if left alone and can deal painful AoE damage. However, you can hit and explode them to chain attack other minions or hit the Boreus with higher damage.

Know Different Minion Types & Attacks

Minion Type Description
Minion A Minion chases after you & does melee attack
Minion B Rounder minion that will explode over time & deal area-of-effect damage
Minion C Dreadfrost variant only. Glowing blue minion that lobs ice missiles from a distance

Strong Charge & Stomp Attacks

Strong Charge & Stomp Attacks

The Boreus can also stagger and knock your attacks back with several strong moves. It will charge towards you and do stationary stomp attacks. Avoid taking damage or breaking your combo by dodging through these attacks.

Double Tail Swing

Double Tail Swing

The Boreus swings its tail to one side and swings it back to the other side. You will be able to foresee this move as it lifts its right leg up before it swings its tail. Prepare to dodge twice. This can be hard to see if directly under Boreus so watch out.

No Known Boop Opportunities

There is no known boop or interrupt opportunity when fighting against the Boreus, making this a long and tedious fight. It's best to deal your most high-damaging and staggering attacks and counter its frost armor to bring it down quickly.
