Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Boss Fight: How to Beat Rued
When you reach the arena where you face Rued, you will find out that he isn’t alone. Rued rules over the wolves and in the Rued boss fight, he comes with his own wolf that is prepared to shred Eivor to bits. To beat Rued you must first target the wolf.
The wolf can do a ton of damage so it is best to deal with it first. The good news is that Wolf’s health bar is much smaller than Rued. Lock onto the wolf and dodge Rued’s attacks. Target the wolf and kill it.
Once you kill the wolf, focus on Rued who will now be very mad that you killed his wolf. To deal with Eivor, Rued will light his sword on fire. Rued’s weak point is his left foot so use your bow to target it and bring down his stamina bar.
If you take a hit by his fire sword dodge to your left or right repeatedly to put out the fire. Rued usually swings twice so even if you parry once it won’t be enough. You might have to parry twice to avoid taking damage. If Rued brings out a second fiery weapon out be ready to dodge it because he will throw it at you.
Kill or Spare Rued?
After you defeat Rued you have the option to kill him but you can also choose to spare his life. If you choose to spare his life Oswald will later get a chance to kill him. But if you spare his life Fenner won’t join your crew. If you wish to recruit Fenner it is best to kill Rued. After you make the decision will have completed A Fury from the Sea quest.
And that’s how you beat Rued in AC Valhalla. If you want more help with Valhalla check out the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Wiki.
