Witcher 3 How to Beat Woodland Spirit (Ancient Leshen)

Witcher 3 How to Beat Woodland Spirit

The Leshen is a tricky fight due to its Wolf underlings and its ability to teleport around the area by transforming into a flock of crows. 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 it will initially start with four Wolves but the Leshen will summon additional Wolves periodically when the originals fall – so keep your eyes open for them!

This fight is actually one of the tougher fights in the game and it can be brutal unless you are able to successfully navigate through the boss’s attacks and deal with the additional Wolves as soon as possible before focusing on the boss himself. When there is an opportunity to take on the boss, use 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.

Note: For defeating the Ancient Leshen, you’ll earn the achievement/trophy ‘Woodland Spirit’.
