Witcher 3 How to Beat Archgriffin

How to Beat Archgriffin

The Archgriffin acts in an almost identical way to the Griffin that we fought in White orchard and also incorporates a few moves from the Cockatrice playbook if you have encountered one of those before. As such, the tactics remain essentially the same for defeating the Archgriffin.

Although it has wings, for the most part it will attack from the ground and has quite a large area of attack due to its wings being able to perform sweeping moves. In addition, the Archgriffin can also jump in the air and dive bomb your position as well as utilise a nasty lunge attack, which you can roll under if timed correctly. When it is in the air, it will also infrequently attempt a swooping attack that can be easily rolled under/away from but will hit like a tonne of bricks if not avoided. Any melee attack that it hits Geralt with has the chance to cause a damage over time bleeding effect.

In addition to its wings/beak/claw-based melee attacks, the Archgriffin also incorporates poison into its repertoire. Similar to the Basilisk and Wyverns, the Archgriffin it is able to spit green projectiles at you which will poison Geralt if it makes contact. Be sure to dodge when you see them coming!

The easiest way to take it down quickly is to hit it with crossbow bolts or AARD whilst it is flying to bring it crashing to the ground – run up and smash it a few times and then use your dodges and rolls to avoid its ground-based attacks whilst dishing out your own attacks when you see an opening. Use a combination of AXII to stun it, IGNI and AARD to dish out damage or YRDEN to slow its movements to get a few attacks in. Repeat this process until it hits the dust.
