While playing Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, one of the first bosses that players will encounter is Valravn, The God of Illusions. This boss can be tough to take down, and put the game’s death system into the mix, and you will have to take down the boss without dying multiple times.
This guide will help you defeat Valravn without taking a ton of damage. This boss is has a lot of health, but his attacks are easy to evade or parry. Valravn is a melee boss, but he also has ranged attacks that will do a lot of damage.
To Defeat Valravn, The God of Illusion In Hellblade:
Valravn is not a tough boss to beat, but he can do a lot of damage if you are unable to dodge his attacks. Valravn uses both, ranged and melee attacks, so keep your guard up at all times. If you are trying to fight him in melee range, make sure you react fast to all of his attacks, and get to a safe distance if the fight gets too intense. This is going to be a long fight, as you will have to land a lot of hits on the boss to take him down.
When fighting Valravn, timing is everything. This boss will be very easy to take down if you parry. Something to look out for are the minions that Valravn summons during the fight. Although the minions are easy to take down, multiple minions attacking you at the same time can cause a lot of trouble. So make sure you always have all the minions in your vision and pick them off one by one.
Aside from the minions, Valravn has several different attacks. As mentioned before, Valravn has ranged and melee attacks, but aside from that, Valravn also has the ability to teleport around the area. When Valravn teleports, he will appear near you and attack you with three quick attacks. Rather then trying to parry these attacks, evading them is your best option, however, you can parry the first two attacks if you are fast enough.
Another attack that players have to look out for is the charge attack, where Valravn floats in the air and flies towards you like a missile. You can easily dodge this attack by strafing left or right, and then follow up with your own attacks.
As mentioned before, Valravn has a ranged attack where he hurls two daggers towards you, which can be dodged very easily by strafing forward. These daggers can be deflected back towards Valravn, if you block them at the right moment. If you are having a hard time deflecting the daggers back at the boss, then you can simply block them and make sure you are ready for his upcoming attack.
When you are near the end of the battle, Valravn will turn himself into a shadow. When in Shadow Form, Valravn is immune, so your attacks will do no damage whatsoever. To counter this, you will have to use Focus Vision. This will dispel his magic, turning him back into his normal form, which you can attack and damage.
A few more attacks, and Valravn will go down. Hopefully this guide made it easier for you to take down Valravn, The God of Illusions with ease. Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is now available on the PS4 and PC.
