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.

Firstly you will need a ranged weapon like a crossbow or a simple bow which should be of high level. Next, you require some of the best armor sets and the best weapons in V Rising. To craft these weapons and armor you will need some resources like Unsullied Hearts, Glass, Soul Shards, and more.

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.

  1. Initiation: Start with Chaos Valley and Rain of Bolts to inflict burning, then use arrows from a distance.
  2. Charge Attack: Dodge by strafing and avoid star-shaped energy balls.
  3. Aerial Fire Orb: Avoid fire orbs on the ground and capitalize on his vulnerable state afterward.
  4. Frost Attack: Stay out of the indicated circle; if hit, you’ll experience chills.
  5. Distance and Damage: Keep your distance, use abilities and arrows to deal damage.
