One of the bosses you will face in the new early access title Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem is called Edric, Justicar of the Republic. Just like Sirkis, this boss fight takes place in the first act of the Lords of Mayhem. In our Wolcen Edric boss fight guide, we will discuss how to beat this boss enemy.

How to Beat Edric, Justicar of the Republic

While you face this boss during the first act of Wolcen, Edric is actually the third boss you face in Lords of Mayhem. When facing Edric you feel notice that his main attack is a charge that he uses to quickly move around the arena. Keep in mind that if you are in his line of movement you will lose HP points.

Edric also has a shield he uses to attack you. The shield has a stun effect that leaves the player stunned for a moment and vulnerable to attacks. The boss can also summon minions to his aid so it is best to kill them first whenever they are summoned. Once these minions are down, focus on the main boss. Avoid being in front of him as much as possible, and flank him from behind. Get behind him and attack from that position.

Due to his large size, Edric takes some time to turn around and attack the player. Use this to your advantage and attack his back and legs.

You can see what skills and signature skills would be best to deal with Wolcen’s Edric boss fight. In the video above, a 2H sword and spec’d 50/50 between Ferocity and Toughness build is used to take down Edric.

However, there are a range of different builds you can use for this boss fight but we suggest face tanking him using a Praetorian / Siegebreaker build for each of his three phases. It is slow and often boring due to all the auto attacks but it does work. You can also try Cabalist DoT stacking.

Stack a ton of Burn/ Shock and move around as much as you can to avoid his attacks. DoTs do a lot of damage to Edric. This is all you need to know to handle this boss with ease.

  1. Instead of explaining How To Beat Edric, Justicar of the Republic In Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem, perhaps you should start with what Lords of Mayhem is? I have never heard of it. I only play on games on PC. You assume everyone knows what that is? We don’t. Just trying to help.

  2. dumb, he has 3 phases each tougher than the first , the last phase he is basically invulnerabel through most of it and he one shots every class escept melee.

  3. This is a garbage failure, released with minimal playtests. Basically, unless you play the exact build and style the makers aimed for, you can SEVERELY punished at the end of the FIRST act. Which can be a few hours into the game. Effectively, an uninstall recipe.

    The end of the first act is impossible for a ranged build that isn’t perfectly tuned and geared. Melee, obviously, is a breeze.

    For an aRPG, I expect mindless grinding to take the edge of the day off, not some Dark Souls stress inducing punishment at the FIRST act. Rather than have some of the campaign an introduction to the game, you get roadblocked a few hours in if you didn’t play as expected at the first part.

    If I want to deep dive into skills just to get through the campaign, I’d go back to Path of Exile. Even there you can mess things up pretty good and still get halfway through the campaign (which includes the FIRST act).

    If I wanted to remember a dozen moves and their dodge/counter pattern at the price of going back 5-15 minutes lest I, God forbid, forget one, I’d play some Dark Souls spawn. Not to mention get my cigarette pack ready so I can fully enjoy that sweet sweet stress (/s).

    Instead of a leisurely introduction to skills, playstyles and a casual story, we get this unenjoyable mess as early as the first act. No, thanks.

  4. i play poe for 7 year, several ranged, caster, glass canon, miner, totem, mellee. I cant kil this boss with my range class……like impossible….poe is god in the arpg

    • The boss needs to be nerfed and I think he will be. I understand what you mean, he is too OP right now. Unfair levels of OP.

  5. Yeah so the whole no check point between the three phases is garbage. for a caster this is garbage. there is no balance to this game you either play one class type or you get fucked. gg. back to a real arpg. sad i funded this pile.
