Witcher 3 How to Beat Kernun (Leshen)
The Leshen is a tricky fight due to its ability to teleport around the area by transforming into a flock of crows and moving from place to place. Despite having some fairly heavy hitting melee attacks if you get in close, the Leshen will for the most part keep its distance. This is because from range it has several damaging attacks. It will frequently pummel the ground to summon roots that will emerge below Geralt causing a good deal of damage if it hits as well as sending its swarm of crows to attack.
Fortunately, the Leshen is relatively slow and aside from the crow swarm attack, his other moves are quite obvious and telegraphed in such a way as to be easy to avoid. The other element you’ll want to be aware of in this fight is that there are often Wolves roaming around this section of the woods and they may wander in to attack you during the fight – so keep your eyes open for them!
The trick to defeating the Leshen is using a combination of IGNI and Dimetirium Bombs to damage the boss quickly. AARD will knock him back temporarily, opening him up for some follow up melee attacks and YRDEN will slow his movements.
The fight is a case of avoiding the boss’s attacks, getting in close to let off a blast IGNI or a Dimetirium Bomb or two before he teleports. Chase him down again and repeat the process until the Leshen falls.
