The ultimate goal of players is to survive in the world of the game and beat every boss of the game. If you are stuck on how to defeat Octavian, the Militia Captain, in V Rising, you’ve come to the right place.
How to Defeat Octavian The Militia Captain in V Rising
The first thing you need to do before fighting Octavian the Militia Captain is to wait until midnight. The fight takes place in an open area with no shades, so if you fight the boss in day time you will take more damage from the sun rather than the boss. You can find Octavian in Bastion of Dunely, north of the Dunley Farmlands region.
Octavian has 5 attacks. The first one is when Octavian slams the ground that throws four blades toward you. This is his regular attack, and to dodge this attack, simply dash to the sides. His second attack is also a swing attack that sends a big blade towards you. You will get stunned if you get hit by these two attacks.
After you counter-attacked his regular attacks, he will summon a fire archer. Every time his health is drained, he will summon a fire archer, so it is best to destroy them before he summons another one. His fourth attack is a little thicker since he will first dash towards you, then perform a series of sword attacks continued by a ground slam. Pay attention to his pattern of attacks and dodge them the best you can.
In his last attack, Octavian will spin around and throw blades at you in every direction. Dash his attacks, and heal if you got hit during his ultimate attack. The most important thing to remember about fighting Octavian is that he uses combos, so make sure you attack at a time when he isn’t performing a deadly combo. Have patience, wait for an opening, and then counter-attack.
