About Nicholaus the Fallen boss in V Rising
V Rising

Nicholaus the Fallen can summon skeletons from the ground.

Reading Nicholaus’s movement and attack patterns

As we mentioned earlier, Nicholaus is a Necromancer which means he can summon the dead from the ground. However, if you follow his movement closely, you’ll notice that he mostly engages a horde of skeletons before him and tries to attack from a distance.

As your fight against Nicholaus starts on the podium, you’ll notice a destructible environment around you that you can break to create more space. This will help you to outmaneuver his entire army of newly summoned and resurrected skeletons at a later stage.

Nicholaus has a total of three attack phases which are explained as follows:

First Phase

This phase will barely reveal what The Fallen Boss is capable of in V Rising. He’ll start off with a green missile-like attack (which players can easily dodge at the last second) followed by a teleportation ability. You’ll get a visual queue before he teleports as the area will be encircled in red.

Try to move away from that area as it can drain a huge chunk of your health.

Second Phase

Nicholaus slowly starts to show his true colors from this phase onwards. He’ll continue summoning more waves of skeletons, followed by three rings of floating skulls released in an abrupt pattern. If you’re a melee player, try to move away from him as much as possible to minimize the inflicted damage.

However, if you’re a ranged player, you can easily dodge it if timed properly.

Third Phase

This is the trickiest phase of all as Nicholaus will try to overpower you. As we mentioned before, he will summon a new army and resurrect the fallen and this is where the space that you created by destroying the environment will come in handy.

You must restrict yourself from being greedy and take one step at a time. After the first few seconds in this phase, you’ll notice the entire horde will try to follow your steps. Move them as far as possible from Nicholaus and try to land some major blows on the Boss.

At this point, he’ll be vulnerable to attacks and if played wisely, you won’t even need to destroy a single skeleton from his army.

What are the rewards achieved after defeating Nicholaus the Fallen boss in V Rising?

After you’ve successfully defeated Nicholaus in the Farbane Woods, here are the rewards that’ll be unlocked:

  • Pestilence (Power)
