Orc King Strategies
Here is a breakdown of the battle strategies against the boss:
Defeat the mobs
Before anything else, clear the area of lesser orcs before taking on the boss.
Keep your distance
Keep moving and maintain a moderate distance away from the boss. If you move too far or get too close, you’ll be punished by his attacks. Continue to be mobile to avoid a potential physical attack when he starts chasing you.
Use Ice Magic of Focus Attacks
You can damage the boss by using a ranged focus attack or ice spell. Just make sure to cast faster than the boss or you will get hurt.
Avoid the Magic Circle
The boss relies on elemental spells to nuke you from afar. You need to stay out of the magic circle and counter it with your own elemental spells. Choose a spell that has a short cast time like low level ones.
Deal continuous attacks while the boss is casting
When the boss’ health is critically low, there will be a countdown. He’ll take some time to charge for a powerful blow. Run up to him quickly and go to town with physical attacks or fire off ice spells fast. The key is to knock him out before he gets the chance to unleash an explosion.
