Last update: Thursday, August 12, 2021

On this page of the guide to Genshin Impact, you will learn how to defeat the boss called Andrius, the Wolf of the North. You'll find him in the Windwail Highland region.

Andrius is one of the first bosses that require you to use 60 Original Resin to unlock rewards for defeating him. In addition, you can only fight him once per week. He is a large wolf that can use ice attacks.

General advice

At the very beginning, attack the boss from a distance - Genshin impact: Andrius, Wolf of the North - boss; how to beat? - Bosses - Genshin Impact Guide
  1. At the very beginning of the fight, the boss "enters" the arena, making him vulnerable to damage. You can attack him without worrying that he will do the same in the first seconds of the fight.
  2. If you notice an ice mark on the ground, it means that the boss will either land there or perform an area attack. However, you do not have to move far from it because using the sprint at the right moment will cancel the damage.
  3. After his HP bar shortens to about 60%, the arena will become darker, and the wolf will start running at high speed around your character. At some point, he'll stop and start charging at you. It is worth avoiding his charge, which he does in a straight line. If you have Tartaglia, you can shoot from a distance during the charge. You can also use Beidou by activating her shield and releasing it when the boss is hit.
  4. When the health bar is 50%, the second phase will begin. During it, the boss summons icicles from the sky that fall on the arena in random places. Avoid them, attack the boss from the side.
  5. If you hesitate if you will be able to dodge the boss's stronger blows, use a Burst Attack - then you are insusceptible to the boss's attacks, and you will deal him a lot of damage.

How to defeat the boss?

At the very beginning, attack the boss from a distance. This will allow you to deal damage from a safe distance. When he gets closer, attack him, and when it is his turn, dodge and get back to attacking.

The boss can jump up and then fall to the ground - Genshin impact: Andrius, Wolf of the North - boss; how to beat? - Bosses - Genshin Impact Guide

The boss can jump up and then fall to the ground. The place where he will land is indicated by ice on the ground. You can move from this place, dodge, or block the attack, for example, with Beidou's shield.

If you see ice on the ground and the boss isn't in the air, it means he will perform the area attack - Genshin impact: Andrius, Wolf of the North - boss; how to beat? - Bosses - Genshin Impact Guide

If you see ice on the ground and the boss isn't in the air, it means he will perform the area attack. As in the previous case, move back if you think that you can't avoid it. However, if you believe in your dexterity, dodge and then attack the boss again.

Attack him from the side or the back - Genshin impact: Andrius, Wolf of the North - boss; how to beat? - Bosses - Genshin Impact Guide

Attack him from the side or the back. However, be careful because the boss can hurt your character, even when he is turned back to you. Use all your character's skills and bursts to deal damage to the boss as quickly as possible. In the meantime, if you do not have a healer, heal yourself with food.
