How to Beat the Altered Goliath World Boss in Forspoken
By now, you’ve likely encountered other world bosses within the game, each of them being weak to Purple Magic and Red Magic. This isn’t the case with Altered Goliath, as this world boss is resistant to both magic types. In addition, Altered Goliath has the ability to constantly regenerate its health, making it extremely difficult to take down. You can still decide to try to take down Altered Goliath with Red Magic or Purple magic, but it will take some time.
When you’re ready to take down Altered Goliath, your main concern needs to be its health regeneration ability. Over time, you can use spells that will damage this, opening up Altered Goliath’s vulnerable state where you can deal damage to him in other ways. If you barrage Altered Goliath and break his composure, it will stun the world boss, which will allow you to use a Killer Blow, dealing massive damage to the mutant.
Using Blue Magic can make this battle much easier to handle and will make it go by much quicker. However, to unlock Tanta Prav‘s water-infused arrow attacks, you must first complete Chapter Eight. However, once you’ve unlocked them, these attacks are one of the best ways to take down Altered Goliath, making quick work of the damage dealt and letting you keep a safe distance from the mutant’s nasty melee attacks.
Altered Goliath uses a few attacks. The first is a bullrush, where he will charge toward you. To avoid this, you’ll have to use Magic Parkour, then lock onto Altered Goliath and use ranged attacks to deal damage. Any attack done to its back will be a critical hit, which is what you want to get.
This is everything you need to know in order to beat the world boss Altered Goliath in Forspoken. Be sure to check back for more useful guides, and as always, be safe and have fun.
