As you progress through V Rising, the bosses you encounter will get stronger and stronger. Simple opponents in the early game will begin to transition into potentially difficult fights with punishing abilities. Polora Fairywalker is a good example of the tougher mid-game bosses you can encounter, and you’re hoping to have some decent gear by now – otherwise she could be quite a hassle.
In this guide, you will learn where to find Polora Fairywalker, the best strategy for fighting her, and what rewards you can get if you win.
Where to find Polora Fairywalker
You can find Polora Faywalker in Gleming Meadow, in the extreme northwest corner of Farbane Woods. She will wander randomly through the meadow, but will never leave it, so it is not necessary to track her with the Altar of Blood.
Tip: The Meadow is one of the best places in the game to collect flowers such as Blood Rose and Fire Flower, and can be farmed indefinitely to collect seeds for your castle garden.
There are no patrolling enemies in the grasslands, so you won’t have to fight your way into Polora.
How to beat Polora Fairywalker
Polora Fairwalker has four main abilities. The first of these is the “Bump” attack, which sends out three projectiles that spread outward from her current location. She will use it very often throughout the fight, and if you get hit by all three projectiles, you can deal massive damage. Circles around Polora on the sides or back will help you master this movement, although it can be tricky as she tends to run a lot. She often becomes invisible for a couple of seconds and runs away from you, but you can still see her silhouette and keep an eye on her when she reappears.
Polora’s next move is a stronger frontal projectile in the form of a Spectral Wolf. It will deal a lot of damage if you hit it, and it can also bounce off any wall and lunge at you. Again, the same strategy applies: by circling around Polora, you will reduce the risk of defeat to zero.
While the circle move is very effective against most bosses in V Rising, Polora can make it harder with her next ability, AoE Fear. This will make you lose control of the character for a few seconds and run away from Polorah. There is no real way to counter this spell and you will often take damage from it. Have a few vermin ointments on hand to heal up, and hope she doesn’t cast Ghost Wolf right after.
Polora’s fourth ability is to summon two little pixie minions to help her. They will constantly shoot projectiles at you, dealing little damage. They don’t have much health and are pretty easy to take down, so it’s recommended to kill them throughout the fight. If left, they can mess up your position and cause unnecessary damage. The fight with Polora can be long, so be patient and keep taking out the pixies.
In terms of equipment, Polora is a 34 combat level boss, and a combat level of 30 is enough to defeat her. The Merciless Night Stalker armor and Merciless Brass weapons will be good enough equipment, and for spells, prefer single-target damage in the form Dark Bolt and Chaos Wave.
Rewards for defeating Polora Faywalker
Paulora Fairwalker gives you a nice reward for defeating her. The first is the Ghost Wolf vampire power, a frontal projectile that deals damage and debuffs the target’s damage for a few seconds, then bounces back to two nearby enemies. An interesting spell, Ghost Wolf is more suited to PvP where the damage reduction can be very useful in a duel, but the low damage makes the other options more attractive for PvE content.
Polora will also give you the Veil of Illusion movement ability, a strong choice if you want to disable the Veil of Chaos. This spell will boost your next basic attack for extra damage and spawn an illusion from the starting location that will hurl projectiles for a small amount of damage. This ability can be used repeatedly for a few seconds to return to its original position and spawn another illusion. This is a fantastic movement option in terms of both damage and mobility, and is highly recommended over other abilities you’ve unlocked in the past. The free damage from your Illusions is very high, and being able to teleport to a previous location can be very important for dodging a lot of projectiles.
For her castle, Polora will reward you with the Vampire Gate building, as well as garden floors. Gates are a great addition to any castle, they allow you to teleport all over the map if you’re not carrying any resources. Garden floors are also very useful as they allow you to grow different plants in your garden. Combined with the seeds that can be obtained from the meadows, a trip to Polor can provide enough resources for a large garden and a good supply of flowers for the rest of the game.
It will also give you the ability to craft a Small Garlic Brew at the Alchemy Table, which can come in handy as you progress beyond Farbane Forest.
