Solo Content

Norn Fighting Tournament


  • Walk into the gateway, stopping halfway through (You may fail to find the correct spot at first but it can be done with some practice).
  • Cast your spirits (If you positioned yourself correctly in the previous step, the spirits will still be able to attack through the door after it closes).
    • Against foes with AoE damage, consider moving sideways after casting so that the spirits will not be quickly destroyed.
    • Against certain opponents, you may save time by leaving out Shadowsong (which is not useful vs. spellcasters) Experiment to find the fastest combination of spirits for each opponent.
  • Aggravate your opponent using Painful Bond.
  • Repeat the above procedure for all opponents leading up to Magni the Bison. Against Magni walk into the gateway and cast spirits, as before, then:


  • AoE (Scythes, Cynn).
  • Melonni if she gets her form up.
  • Razah can be difficult, as he uses the same spirit build (counter this by using a longbow so Razah's spirits cannot hit you).
  • Warmaster Tydus uses a longbow so your spirits sometimes cannot hit (position yourself in the corner to pull him closer).
  • Gwen will also spam Spiritual Pain to quickly destroy your spirits.

Cold as Ice


  • The glacial griffon spawns roughly in the center of the ring of dead wolves.
