Hyrja in the Seat of Ascension
After defeating Hymdall, you can either travel left to Hyrja, or right to Fenryr. We travel to Hyrja first, but this may differ in your run.

He repeatedly casts Cleansing Flames at random players, dealing heavy damage. This must be interrupted. -The Valarjar Aspirant will jump away from the Tank with Valkyra's Advance, and then cast a frontal breath aimed towards the Tank with Blast of Light. In front of Hyrja, you will encounter two Mini-Bosses, in order to enable the fight with Hyrja. -Olmyr the Enlighted will use Searing Light, dealing moderate damage that needs to be healed. Otherwise, he will cast Sanctify, spawning bolts of holy light traveling away from him. Getting hit by any of these will cause it to explode, dealing heavy damage to all party members. It is strongly adviced to dodge all of them, and melees staying away from him while he channels Sanctify. -Solsten will cast Eye of the Storm, dealing heavy damage to all players if they are not hidden underneath the bubble that also spawns during that cast. Both of these Enemies are using Abilities that Hyrja is also using in her fight.
The second Boss you will encounter in the Halls of Valor is Hyrja.
Notable Abilities -Mystic Empowerment: Thunder and Mystic Empowerment: Holy increases her damage dealt, the closer she is to one of the sides of the room. -Shield of Light is a frontal breath aimed towards the Tank Eye of the Storm and Sanctify are similar to the ones from the Minibosses before
Hyrja Strategy and Abilities The Tank will be in the need of moving Hyrja from one side of the room to the other, to trigger Mystic Empowerment: Thunder and Mystic Empowerment: Holy alternatively. Whether she is empowered by either Holy or Thunder, she will use the same Abilities as the Minibosses – Eye of the Storm or Sanctify. -Shield of Light She will use Shield of Light, a frontal breath aimed to the tank. This can lead to a quick death for any damage dealer while the Boss is moving across the room. -Mystic Empowerment: Thunder If Hyrja is affected by Mystic Empowerment: Thunder, she will use Arcing Bolt. This deals moderate damage and jumps over to another party member, so players are adviced to spread out. She will also use Eye of the Storm, which players need to hide in the bubble to avoid taking heavy damage. Whenever she is affected by Thunder, she loses her damage gain for Holy. -Mystic Empowerment: Holy Whenever Hyrja is affected by Mystic Empowerment: Holy, she will use Expel Light. This creates a circle around the targeted player, and explodes for moderate damage in an 8-yards radius. She will also use Sanctify, which must be avoided by all players. These bolts explode whenever a player is hit, and deal heavy damage to all party members. Whenever she is affected by Holy, she loses her damage gain for Thunder.
Fenryr in the Fields of the Eternal Hunt
Whether you chose Hyrja first, the next Boss you have to encounter is Fenryr.
Notable Trash Mobs Whenever you walk into the Fields of the Eternal Hunt, there will be a Dragon landing on the right side of the entrance. We advice players to avoid this, and continue tracking down
Fenryr has two different random locations where he could potentially resides. Follow his footsteps to track him down. Notable Abilities -Unnerving Howl interrupts all spellcasting when hit, and spawns Ebonclaw Worg to attack players. -Scent of Blood will fixate a player and deals heavy damage whenever he reaches its target -Ravenous Leap jumps to marked players, dealing damage to all players within 10- yards of the targeted player
Fenryr Strategy and Abilities Whenever Fenryr reaches 60% of his health, he will become immun to attacks, and travels further into the Fields of the Eternal. This gives players a break of the fight. -Claw Frenzy In the first Phase of the Boss, he will use Claw Frenzy to deal very heavy damage to the tank, but this damage splits between all players within 12 yards. This can be either mitigated by strong defensive cooldowns, or will be compensate by your melee DPS in your group. -Unnerving Howl Whenever Fenryr casts Unnerving Howl, stop your cast otherwise you will be silenced for 3 seconds. Whenever he uses this spell, he will spawn Ebonclaw Worgs to engage into the fight. The more of them alive, the more damage they will deal due to Strength of the Pack. -Ravenous Leap Otherwise, whenever a player is targeted by Ravenous Leap, you have to spread out so other party members can avoid getting hit by it. There is no circle around players indicating the range of its impact, but players have to be atleast 10-yards apart from each other. When the Boss reaches 60%, he travels further and players have to engage into the fight again in another location -Scent of Blood In the second Phase of the fight, Fenryr will use the same Abilities as in the first Phase, but will also use Scent of Blood. This fixates a random player which will receive heavy damage whenever they get hit by Fenryr hunting for its prey. This can be mitigated by very strong defensive cooldowns, which could allow players to not run away from him. As soon as you defeated Fenryr, the gates to the Halls of Valor will open and you are on your way to fight God-King Skovald.
God-King Skovald in the Halls of Valor
After defeating Fenryr and Hyrja, the gates open to the Ephemeral way, which leads to the Halls of Valor. There, Odyn will task you to defeat God-King Skovald.
Notable Trash Mobs In the Halls of Valor, the last room of the Dungeon called ‘Halls of Valor’, you will encounter four enemies that activate after you talking to them. You have to talk to one of them at a time. As soon only two are left, both of them will engage at the same time. They all have different abilities, which will be granted to all other as soon as one has been defeated. From Left to Right: -King Ranulf uses Unruly Yell, interrupting all spellcasts -King Haldor uses Sever, dealing heavy Tank damage -King Bjorn uses Wicked Dagger, dealing moderate damage to a random player -King Tor uses Call Ancestor to spawn an add, that travels to Tor to heal him. This can also be rooted We suggest you to kill them in the Order from Left to Right
Second to last Boss in the Halls of Valor is God-King Skovald. God-King Skovald Strategy and Abilities To start the fight with God-King Skovald, a player (preferably Tank) has to pick up the Aegis of Aggramar. -Savage Blade Skovald will use Savage Blade against the Tank, leaving a Ragged Slash debuff on them if the tank has no active mitigation up. -Felblaze Rush He will also charges to a random players location with Felblaze Rush, dealing damage in a 10-yards radius. -Ragnarok Whenever the Boss reaches 100 Energy, he will cast Ragnarok, dealing heavy damage to all players not protected by the Aegis of Aggramar. After Ragnarok, God-King Skovald will strike off the Aegis of Aggramar from the Player and reclaims it. He will use the Aegis himself, protecting him from all damage infront of him. Players can stand behind him during that to continue dealing damage on him. -Flame of Woe During that time, he will spawn Flame of Woe that start attacking random players. They will use Infernal Flames at random players location. This leaves a patch of fire on the floor, dealing moderate damage to players inside of it.

This will prevent players from being resurrected during combat if they die. Frequently, he will Summon Stormforged Obliterator.

This debuff deals light damage to players. To remove this debuff, players have to move into the corresponding Rune on the floor, indicated by the color of the rune. The Runes on the floor do also match the Rune over your head, if you are having trouble differentiating colors. Whenever you cleansed the debuff, you turn into a Valk’yr yourself and become Branded, increasing your damage and healing done by 50%. Additionally, your health is restored to full health. This is the moment you should also use your strongest damge cooldowns, including Bloodlust.
