Valkyrie Queen Level?

16 posts in this topic

Obviously facing real trouble with the Queen, at level 8. Will levelling up to 9 make a considerable difference?

Yes and no. A lot of it takes skill and practice - When I did it, I farmed for mist echoes to get the level 9 gear and then equipped my highest level weaponary with as many legendary enchantments I could fit into the slots and I got a resurrection stone too. When the battle starts and the queen rubs your face in the dirt, I held square so Atreus can set wolves on her and then I just spammed both the special attacks with the axe and blades and blocking inbetween until she was dead. I did die at one point and Atreus revived me so I activated rage of sparta and started throwing boulders at her and having the game set to easy makes a difference too :)

Wow that sounds like a plan. Will try that. I'm level 9, but more thanks to the Shattered Gauntlet of Ages with its three enchantments (Andvari's Soul, Ivaldi's Corrupted Mind, and a third generic one as for some reason I'm missing Asgard's Shard of Existence, Eye of the Outer Realm and Muspelheim Eye of Power (costs too much right now).

 

I haven't fully upgraded my chest armor as that would require way too much grinding in Muspelheim. Might be forced to do that anyway if I'm still struggling.

@Farhad_S The only time I bought anything from the shop was for the Valkrie, I saved her till last. Doing the trials in Muspelheim and side quests gets you decent gear. Opening all the treasure chests in Nifheim for example gets you a few decent items but you wanna be level 9 at least and built for fucking war if you want to take the queen on :)

Equipment is good and all but what really makes the fight is recognizing her fighting patterns and and really good dodging skills.

Thanks! Took me a while to realise that this was more about defence than offence. As you mentioned, recognising her attacks and how to react was key. Hands still shaking as I type this but finally done!

Ruined an almost perfect game. All the Valkaries were cheap fights and the queen earned her name for sure. Developer must not understand "enjoy the experience" differently. 🤬

I don't wanna be that guy but... You did do the fight on easy, and it is called easy for a reason, so not sure what you were expecting there.

Even in easy you stand no chance unless you're at least a level 8. She hits hard, mostly unblockable moves too. The most important thing to do is learn is dodging the attacks where she flies at you three or four times, if she gets you she will stomp your head in and take a huge portion of your health off (or kill you)

This, ive been taking my time with the game as im writing a walkthrough, I have the official guide and I have been researching on the net thoroughly.

 

I played through to the end once, spent a few hours on a single valkyrie, I then begun again now I knew the game and began writing.

 

This 2nd time, I planned everything out, 100% the game and saving all Valks till last. Once I was ready to fight them, I killed every Valk 1st time without using a resurrection stone.

 

Even the Queen died first time, but I was close to using a resurrection stone.

 

This was all on easy, but point is, even the Queen can be cheesed. Those that are struggling, you either have a insufficient build or its due to the difficulty. 

 

I cant say ow my build woud fare on higher difficulties but guess would still work as I hadnt used the revive stone and also I wastes some runics at the start as I didnt know the queen jumps straight on you unlike the rest.

level, magic and weapons are useful but you just have to remember her patterns; this are the same as the other valkiries (for example, she uses the lava attack like the muspelheim one). the valkiries are set to prepare you to beat the queen: if you have struggled with one, you Will have a bad time with the queen.

 she took me 4 times to beat her in normal difficulty, not so troublesome IMHO 😁 . i've enjoyed my time but i Will NOt ever never try it in god difficulty

I'd say to get dodging, and learning the attack pattern helps a lot. It also depends on the build you're doing, so find all the equipment you need beforehand. I played that fight on NG+, and even after that I lowered the difficulty, but it's doable on normal if you focus. Can't imagine on Hard or Give Me God of War.

 

If you want some help on armor, Niflheim Mist Armor (the one you create on the Ivaldi's Labyrinth quest) has a regeneration passive ability, so it helps a bit.

I played on God of War difficulty, as I like a challenge in such games. I had the fully maxed out dwarven armor of sigri, all the runes I could find that upgrade cooldown and a beserkers resurrection stone. What I did was spam my light and heavy runes with the axe, then spam the attacks with the blades of chaos, then made Atreus spawn those wolves, while doing some heavy attacks with the blades. After she recovered, I turned on Spartan rage to avoid damage and keep getting her cornered. By that time she was already a fair bit down. Then I just repeated the process with the rune attacks.

I like a good challenge... somedays. And other days, I strap on level 10 NG+ armor, lower the difficulty to easy, and roll me some trophies. Manliness is cool and all, but somedays I'd rather just have my trophy.
