Bound by Flame Final Boss Guide: How to Defeat Him Easily

The final boss fight in Bound by Flame is almost impossible, especially if you don’t have a solid strategy to approach the demon/dragon combo that is probably driving you crazy already. Don’t worry, you’re not the only one who thinks that the final boss in the game is insanely difficult, but you’ll surely not be one of those who can’t beat him/it either because we have here the Bound by Flame final boss guide and we’ll tell you exactly what to do to beat him easily.

Probably the most important thing to know when dealing with this difficult boss in the game is that you really need a strategy and you need to stick with it all the way to the end. It also is better if you have your magic pockets full and a nice stash of crossbow bolts.

So here is how to beat the final boss in Bound by Flame easily:

– Keep your distance. Going all melee is pure suicide, so try to avoid it as much as possible. Stay away and send fireballs his way. It will take a lot of them, but it’ll get the job done!
– Another good strategy is to shoot the final boss with crossbow bolts. You will need around 150 of them to do the job, but in the end, even if you have just half that amount, it’s still good if you follow them with magic attacks.
– Make sure you have a decent stack of health and mana potions. Probably 20 of each would be enough for most fights.
– Fire resistance is key. Therefore, if you have the resources, enhance all your armor with fire resistance. You won’t be needing anything after the battle is over, so spend everything on getting ready!

Finally, learn the attack patterns and learn to avoid them. When his weapons start to glow, this means that he’s about to rush towards you – make sure you dodge this one out correctly, and hit him once or twice while he’s open. Melee also works good in this instance, but don’t stay close for too long in order to avoid the weapon combo.

Also, there’s one more powerful attack, when he surrounds itself with light balls and starts shooting at you. This is when “keep your distance” goes into play: run, dodge and send crossbow bolts his way.

If you’re having trouble with the dragon too, you should change your strategy a bit in this case: simply go close to mid-range and melee or fireball at the dragon’s legs, running away when he starts breathing fire close by. Then return and spam-attack the monster again. If you have enough crossbow bolts and mana, these work well too to get the job done.

In the end, you will see that it’s not that difficult (at least not impossible) to beat the final boss in Bound by Flame, even though it’s a pretty frustrating fight during the first few tries! But that’s how boss battles should be: very difficult! And if you’re having difficulty with the ones early on, we also have a guide on how to beat the Concubine.

Bound by Flame Guide: How to Defeat the Concubine Bosses

In Bound by Flame, the Concubine monsters are a set of powerful bosses presented at the end of Act 3. In order to infiltrate Blackfrost’s palace and slay the ruthless Ice Lord, players must defeat his most loyal guardians, the concubines. However, to slay the main Concubine known as the Guardian, Vulcan has to kill her minor daughters, the Creator, the Stalker and the Watcher. The combat style for all of them are quite similar, what differs is each boss attack damage and health. Learn how to take down these promiscuous deities.

Bound by Flame concubine1. Position Yourself for Melee Combat

When the battle begins, you should position yourself for a close range combat style. Get close to the Concubine but not close enough to get hit or disabled. You should definitely fight at a melee range for two main reasons, first because your specialization is either warrior or ranger, both melee classes, and secondly because the Concubine excels at magic, which means she’s less efficient at melee combat.

Bound by Flame concubine2. Find the Battle Rhythm

The Concubine has a very peculiar battle rhythm, especially at melee combat. She will basically do one attack type repeatedly with a few cast variations. Once you learn her rhythm, it’s easier to dodge every single hit and consequently counter-attack. Sometimes, she uses magic spells while in close range. This will certainly disrupt the rhythm but don’t panic. Just dodge it and try to engage her in close combat once again.

Bound by Flame concubine3. Avoid Ranged Combat

You must avoid range combat while fighting any of the Concubines. Why? Well, they are expertise mages and their spells hurt a lot. Besides, if you adopt a distant position you won’t be able to do much damage. Also, if you keep a medium-long range distance, the Concubine will spam various magical skills, in whichsome of them are particularly strong and hard to dodge.

Bound by Flame concubine4. Don’t Let Your Health Bar Go Down

To ensure you’re not going to die from a minor mistake, such as a failed dodge or a poor positioning move, then you should keep your health bar above half at all times. This way you won’t have any unexpected surprises. If you take a lethal blow while having your health bar substantially up, then you’ll still have the chance to immediately drink a potion and recover. Otherwise, you’ll just die.

Bound by Flame concubine5. Dodge Magical Abilities

The key success to survive the Concubines is to dodge their magical skills at any cost. The best option is to move around or dodge/parry their skills entirely. If you don’t manage to dodge the skills, you won’t last long since some of them can basically one shoot you. Others might seem a bit less efficient but sometimes the Concubine executes a flame combo chains that will consequently lock your character into the ground, resulting in a frustrating death.

Bound by Flame concubine6. Use Orb of Fire as Much as You Can

Using Vulcan’s fire ability, the Orb of Fire, is a great tactic against this enemy. It’s not just about the decent amount of damage it inflicts. This spell also has a chance to burn the Concubine, leading the monster into enter a state of deep flame suffering for a few seconds. This will allow you to get close and free hit her during the current time. Note that this chain tactic is capable of tremendous harm if executed correctly.

Bound by Flame concubine7. Adopt a Frontal or Sideward Approach

When fighting this monster at close range, remember to always go for her sides or front. If you choose to be sneaky and attack her from the rear, then you’ll get immediately kicked out. The Concubine has several pairs of legs and one of them is set in her very back; it works as an anti-rear attack protection. Remember that getting slammed into the ground can become a huge problem if the deity casts another disable or magic spell while you’re still not on your feet.

Bound by Flame concubine8. Don’t Rely on Your Block Ability

The last tip for this boss fight is to never rely on your block ability. Blocking works perfectly against trash mobs. However, when it comes to bosses and mini-bosses this skill becomes useless and it’s nothing more than a time-sink mechanism. You can’t block the Concubine’s projectiles, so don’t waste anytime clicking the block key. Instead, try to dodge, parry or simply move in a different direction to avoid the hit.

The Concubines have different strength levels depending on the game difficulty you choose. However, their mechanics remain the same. To defeat this deity, you only need to learn her battle rhythm and thoroughly accompany her frontal combat dance in order to flame dodge/parry and counter attack. In between, you should deny all her magical hits and keep your health bar filled. Once you repeatedly do this, you won’t have many issues to slay all of them.

Note that you need to defeat the Concubines by a specific order. Else, you’ll need to face two at a time. Kill the Stalker first (the one closest to the camp on the left side), then you’re clear to go for the rest of them.
