Octavian boss description

Since V Rising includes many entailed and detailed fight scenarios in all of the survival games, players must increase their level of gear to at least the standard of Octavian which is level 58 in order to take him down.

Octavian The Militia Captain Attack Mechanics

You need myriads of defensive and healing spells to dodge his hard attacks like horizontal slashes and healing spells to heal yourself accordingly.

You will also need healing potions/items to stay topped off. Although Octavian may seem like a giant and tempting enemy, he may not be that difficult to tackle if you know what you are doing. His attacks are perfectly curated and telegraphed so as far as you maintain your distance, you should be able to dodge him and his ads quite easily. Octavian The Militia Captain In V Rising uses a total of five different types of attacks.

Horizontal Strike

Octavian boss fight attacks

It is the second most basic attack he uses to send four rolling swords/projectiles horizontally which deals with a lot of damage and knocks off the player. 

Overhead Strike

Octavian boss slash attacks

As you captivate his attention, he will be mostly using two basic attacks. Overhead strike hits foes in front of him and discharges out a rolling sword/projectile. If you are hit by this projectile, your health will be knocked off substantially by launching you into the air.

Summoning Militia Longbowman

Just when Octavian starts to lose his health points by a few points he will start calling Militia Longbowman. 

“TO ME!” 

Octavian yells “to me!” to summon upon the archers they use archery to combat against you so you have to knock down them as well. 

Octavian’s Ultimate Ability
