Valkyrie Queen Sigrun Fight Video Guide
Location: Summoned at the Council of Valkyries to the North of the Lake of Nine, once all other Valkyries are defeated.
Recommended Level: Level 7 for a reasonable difficulty fight.
After defeating all other Valkyries and claiming their helmets, return to the Council of Valkyries on the North side of the Lake of Nine, and look for a throne area across the bridge where you can place each of the helmets. Do this, and the challenge to beat the Valkyrie Queen will unlock.
Sigrun has just about every single maneuver the other 8 valkyries had. You need to apply everything that you’ve learned up to this point.
Recommended Runes and Items:
Kratos’ armor depends on how you play, but, generally, it’s best to go with a mix of Ivaldi’s Set armor.
In this fight vision is key — Sigrun’s biggest attacks all involve her flying up into the air. To make sure you can identify and avoid them, stay far away from her for most of the fight and keep your back close to the wall. This means this fight will probably take longer, but many of her attacks involve her diving toward Kratos. Avoid these and you’ll save yourself a lot of grief.
Then, once you’ve successfully dodged her attack combo, she’ll stop to recover for a second giving you a chance to start your combo. You can start with a heavy attack then throw down your available Runic abilities. Make sure you have quick Runic attacks equipped that chain together well to make the most of these openings. Runic attacks are a great way to break her wing shield too if she uses it with your first heavy attack.
Atreaus’ arrows don’t damage Sigrun, so don’t worry about managing him much during the fight. His summons aren’t all that effective either, so the best option is usually Ratatoskr. The wolves also help break her combos from time to time, but it’s hard to give up that chance to get extra health from the squirrel. If you do equip Ratatoskr, make sure you only call him when you plan on using the health or else it’ll disappear after awhile.
Consider using your rage as a safe way to pick up health crystals as opposed to dealing some extra damage. Kratos can’t be hurt when Spartan Rage is active, so the meter will just lower instead of taking damage. It’s also a great way to cancel one of Sigrun’s attacks. Pop Rage to knock her back, then cancel it to save rage for later.
This is a long fight. Keep trying!
