Blood and Wine Cloud Giant Boss

You’ll encounter this boss after you and Syanna climb the beanstalk. He looks a lot like Golyat, but is much stronger and has better protection. You don’t have to worry about your companion – he won’t be able to kill her.

His move set is also similar to Golyat’s – he uses a giant hoe for a weapon, swinging it around in broad swipes. He has a unique move that sees him fall through below the clouds, then jump up near you and try to hit you. If you don’t time your dodges properly, a couple of these will cost you your win.

According to the bestiary, he has a weakness to Igni, Dancing Star bombs and ogroid oil. If you’re playing on a higher difficulty, the latter is a must-have.

When lightning strikes them it will electrify them. When the giant hits the elecrtified obstacle, it will stun him for a coupple of seconds. Use this time to land several strong attacks before he comes to his senses.

    This has to be a bug, but when I faced him, I used Quen to get ready, then fired a single crossbow bolt at his head. He DROPPED DEAD INSTANTLY. I was really confused so I reloaded a save and tried it again. He dropped dead once again. Did my game break or is this some kind of secret trick?
