Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: How to Beat Leofrith

There are two phases to Leofrith’s boss fight and at the end of the second phase, you are able to beat him for good.
Leofrith Boss Fight Phase 1
In the first phase of the boss fight, you should be defensive. The majority of the fight should be about parrying attacks and making sure you keep your healing items for the second phase. All of his attacks are pretty easy to dodge or parry thanks to the orange aura that telegraphs all incoming attacks. Use your shield to block his orange attacks to reduce his stamina bar. He will be vulnerable for a short time after you parry his attacks but you can only land a couple of hits. DO NOT get greedy with it or else will cause a lot of damage with his counterattacks.
In addition to orange attacks, Leofrith has red aura attacks that can not be blocked by Eivor. The only way to protect yourself from Leofrith’s red attacks in this boss fight is by moving out of the way. Dodge backward to move out of the way to avoid his red glowing attacks.
