Genshin Impact Dvalin Boss Fight – How to Beat, Best Characters, and more


Are you also facing problems with the Genshin Impact Dvalin Boss Fight? Our guide will tell you how to beat this boss easily. 

Anemo elemental dragon Dvalin, also known as Stormterror, is the first and longest-serving of the Four Winds to be worshipped by the Anemo Archon Barbatos. The ancient god Decarabian’s abandoned tower was the destination of Dvalin’s recovery after he was severely injured during the cataclysm five hundred years ago during a battle with the corrupted black dragon Durin. 

For five hundred years, the Abyssal poison that Dvalin ingested in Durin’s veins tormented him, but the Mondstadt people forgot about him. Dvalin believed he had been abandoned by the Anemo Archon and Mondstadt when he finally woke up. Abyss Order took advantage of this to further corrupt his mind, provoking him to attack Mondstadt and earning him the name “Stormterror.”

How to find Stormterror Dvalin

In order to locate Stormterror Dvalin, players must first raise their Adventure Rank to level 18. Due to the fact that Stormterror is an integral part of the main quest, players must reach a certain level to access their associated quest line. When players reach level 18, they will have a marker on their map pointing them toward Stormterror’s lair once they pick up his quest line.

In Stormterror’s lair, players will find a large temple, which is totally engulfed in a barrier. As this barrier cannot be penetrated, players will need to use their gliding and platforming skills to get around it. Players will be able to glide around the temple using nearby wind currents until they reach the inside of the temple. Players are then told to pick up three crystals so a nearby switch can be activated.

Throughout the area, players will have three more switches to activate, each requiring three crystals to activate. However, this isn’t as easy as it sounds, as each switch is surrounded by multiple enemies that need to be cleared out in order to be activated. Upon completion of all these steps, the barrier surrounding the temple will drop, and Stormterror can be fought.

Genshin Impact Dvalin Boss Fight: First Phase

If players want to survive, they must stay on their toes as this massive dragon-like creature can deal an insane amount of damage. Once they begin the fight, they will be warned that Stormterror is a level 26 boss. To make this fight as easy as possible, players should have at least a level 26 party, but preferably more.

It is also important for players to bring certain characters into this fight so that it will be easier for them. Because Stormterror spends a lot of time flying around the arena, ranged attackers are ideal. It will also help players deal damage without getting hurt themselves. We have mentioned the recommended characters for this boss fight above so please check that.

In the first part of the Stormterror battle, players will take control of the main character while flying through the air after the dragon, shooting energy at its weak spots. Players need to dodge laser beams from Stormterror once they have destroyed the first crystal. They do not deal much damage on their own, but over time they can add up to a great deal of damage.

In order to open rings that boost speed, players must shoot Anemo crystals in the air to open the rings that will allow Stormterror to fly far away after each weak point is destroyed. You will be able to catch up to Stormterror after these steps have been completed. Continue this process until Stormterror runs out of health, and then the second phase of the fight will begin. 

Genshin Impact Dvalin Boss Fight: Second Phase

As soon as the player defeats Stormterror in the air, he will eventually descend onto the ground and battle with the player. Players will have to leap over several holes in the ground in order to keep a close eye on Stormterror in this completely circular arena, which is broken in several spots.

To defeat Stormterror, the key is to deal damage as often as possible. Ranged characters can attack the boss whenever they wish, while melee fighters must wait for specific openings to attack. Stormterror cannot move for a few precious seconds whenever he bites or blows fire. Players can exploit this to dish out damage and set him up for elemental damage.

In order to deplete Stormterror’s shield, you need to freeze him with Cryo and then fire or electric arrows. When Stormterror’s shield has fallen, a weak point will appear behind his head. As a result, players will be able to deal damage to him in several ways. The bow can be fired from afar, or the sword can be used to climb on his back and attack him through wind currents.

Players should do as much damage to the weak point as possible before he starts attacking again. When a player deals damage to the weak point, he will eventually fly away and regenerate his shield. In order to bring him down, players simply need to keep dropping his shield and attacking that weak point. He will ultimately be defeated if you keep hitting him hard and try to dodge the Ultimate attack whenever you can.

Things to keep in mind

  • It is best to move to the wind current to either side of Dvalin’s platform and glide to the next platform when Dvalin’s HP drops below half. Dvalin will do a special attack that will crack the platform you are on, dealing damage to you over time.
  • Attacking Dvalin’s claws first will damage its HP. You can do this when he breathes and when he bites: both times are good opportunities.
  • You can damage Dvalin’s neck after he breaks his claws by attacking the purple thorn under it. All you need to do is climb up Dvalin’s neck and attack the purple thorn.
