Fire Giant: Boss Fight Strategy
Welcome to what will be, at least on the face of it, one of the most difficult fights in the game. The Fire Giant is quite an apt description: it's a huge giant that can throw fireballs at you and make flames come out of the ground. It's equipped with a shield, which it uses to hit you and shovel snow at you. Both attacks take out huge chunks of your health bar. You will want to spend this entire engagement aboard Torrent.
At the very start of the fight, ride towards the boss but beware of its first attack: it'll either throw snow at you or swing for you with the shield. Double back when this happens, allowing it to come towards you. With that out of the way, you're going to want to target its feet. Specifically, you want its left foot. This is the one with a sort of cloth wrapping around it, not the one with a metal brace. Attacking it is how you'll deal damage in the first phase of the fight, avoiding the boss' attacks and continually hitting the foot. It has a lot of HP, so expect the engagement to take some time.
Once the Fire Giant reaches 50 per cent, a cutscene will play. Its left foot has now been chopped off, rendering it immobile — to a point. The boss will now roll around the large arena on its side while spawning dozens of fireballs. We actually found this phase easier than the first since you can attack the boss pretty much anywhere, but always be aware of what it's doing. New attacks include huge fireballs that explode upon contact.
Just like the first phase, play it safe and you should learn how to down the boss pretty quickly. Fire Giant is also weak to Bleed damage, so if you have an upgraded weapon that specializes in that, make sure to equip it. Another tip is to two-hand your weapon before summoning Torrent. This means you'll deal more damage whilst swiping at the boss' legs.
