Vicelin (The Compass) is a powerful man who uses a two-handed flail in combat. Before you start the boss fight, it is worth to use the nearby Springalds and shoot several projectiles at the boss. You have only 3 shots before your opponent destroys the weapon so aim at the sensitive points: left elbow, right elbow and left knee.
If you don't succeed with the first attept, use the Focus of the Nornir skill or just aim well and hit the boss' sensitive points.
This will bring your opponent to his knees and expose him to a powerful attack that will deprive him of about half health bar.
Most of The Compass' attacks are signaled by a yellow rune flash - you can parry them easily
Watch out for the red flash, which announces a powerful attack that cannot be blocked so you will have to avoid it. The Compass can, for example, catch Eivor and throw him into the sea or swing the powerful weapon and attack from the hip.
The Compass' special skill is the ability to call for reinforcements and order to attack the deck on which the fight is taking place. Nearby Springalds will then fire a rain fo arrows that will fall in the marked place. When the shots are coming you can either avoid them or block with your shield.
When your opponent is defeated, remember to confirm the killl and the fight will be over.
