This is a pretty hefty boss so you should have some of the best gear in the game. Read our V Rising Gear Progression guide and learn an easy way to upgrade your gear score.

The best abilities you must have are the ability to block any type of attack thrown your way. For that, we recommend Ward of the Damned.

Another ability you require is the Veil of Chaos for traveling, and for damage use the Chaos Valley and Rain Of Bolts. Lastly for the ultimate ability use the Heart Strike ability to gain Health Points (HP) while dealing damage.

Winged Horror Boss Fight Strategy

The Winged Horror is an end-level boss so naturally, it has a large health bar and tremendous power. Another factor that makes him a difficult boss is that you have to fight him in the sun as he will be roaming outside.

Start the fight by using the Chaos Valley and Rain of bolts on the Winged Horror. It will put a burning effect on the boss. Since you have the burning effect started, quickly follow it with arrows from afar. This will be the strategy for the fight.

Charge Attack

The Winged Horror has several attacks and he opens the fight with a Charge Attack. For this attack, he summons two energy orbs and rushes toward you with immense speed.

Dodge the Charge attack by strafing away from the attack. He also shoots star-shaped energy balls which bounce off the ground. Be sure to avoid these by dashing or using the Ward of the Damned.

Aerial Fire Orb

Another powerful attack the Winged Horror uses is the Aerial Fire Orb. He will fly upwards and shoot fire orbs on the ground which will last a couple of minutes. Be sure to not step into the fire as this will put a burning effect on you and you will be devastated by the Winged Horror. He shoots the orbs around the area and flies up from so try to avoid that area.

If you see red circles starting to appear, it means that he using the fire orbs. After dodging the attack he will land back on the ground and instantly use Chaos Valley followed by a barrage of arrows to do some serious damage to the Winged Horror.

Frost Attack

The boss uses an AOE Frost Attack which is indicated by a circle like the fire orb. The effect lasts for a few seconds, so avoid the area for a few seconds. If you get near the attack you will get chills.

He will still use the other attacks and some of them have burning effects. If you want to remove the effect get hit by the frost attack this will give you chills instead of burning and thus will return your speed. To use your consumables and healing abilities wait for the boss to be air bourne.

Now you have to just keep your distance from the Winged Horror and its AOE attacks and from afar use your abilities and arrows to deal damage to him.
