We are in a showdown and we have reached the final boss in Valheim, latest title developed by Iron gate ab that in the course of these few days has managed to win the praise of a vast audience, with results in terms of mind-boggling sales; a terrifying being in the form of a huge legless half-skeleton - with a crown of bones placed on the skull - who drags himself on his arms, he steps in front of us ... and does not seem to have good intentions
The following text may contain narrative and playful spoilers on Valheim, the latest work by Iron Gate AB and published by Coffee Stain Studios. We therefore advise you to continue carefully in order to avoid any major and minor spoilers, which could undermine your play experience.
Yagluth is found in the Plains. Its altar is placed in the center of a circle of stones that look like gigantic fingers that protrude from the ground, and the center is the palm of the hand. To summon it, you need to place five Fuling totems right there. Fuling Totems are dropped by defeated Fuling Shamans, beings found on the Plains.
Like all the other bosses, he too has three attacks. This monstrosity, being legless, has slow and uncertain movements, and this works in your favor because, in some way, it makes it predictable. Yagluth will make two dangerously powerful fist attacks, one dealing damage within range and the other summoning a meteor shower over the area. When he raises his fist and it glows with a blue light, it means that he is about to hit the ground causing an explosion that will damage anyone in the vicinity. When it glows orange, a cascade of boulders will descend and deal hits and fire damage. In this case, the most effective shelter is the finger-shaped stones that will act as an umbrella. As for the third attack, Yagluth will raise his head, open his mouth and spit out a very powerful breath of fire. This attack acts like a long-range flamethrower and as it releases it, it will slowly rotate its head for the duration of the puff, so as to direct the line of fire on the surrounding area.
At this point in the game you will surely have unlocked all the upgrades to your paraphernalia, and this is the right opportunity to show off the best of the best. The combat tactic is more or less what you have already adopted with the other bosses. It is always preferable to keep a safe distance and use the most powerful bow and the most painful arrows. If you play in company it will be easier to manage the situation because, for example, when the enemy spits fire, he will only turn to one player at a time, leaving all the others free to attack him. If you decide to carry out a melee, preferably hit him on the back as his slow movements will allow you to move away before suffering an attack.
When you defeat Yagluth, he will lose his mind. Place it on the sacrificial stone for damage reduction from elemental threats such as fire, frost, and poison. What is the use of receiving such a reward at the end of the game is still unclear. Rather, however, being Valheim still in early access, it would suggest that it may be a preview of other news that could come later. This, however, was all you needed to know to defeat Yagluth in Valheim; if you need new help we remind you that we have an entire guide section dedicated to all the titles of the moment.
