Reading Ferocious Bear’s movement and attack patterns

As we mentioned earlier, the Ferocious Bear is a V Blood boss and deals the maximum damage in close-range combat due to her predatory slams.

The Ferocious Bear has a total of two attack phases which are explained as follows:

First Phase

Range attacks are effective against the Ferocious Bear.

The first phase in V Rising will doesn’t reveal much about how the boss operates. Since the Ferocious Bear is huge in size, its movement is slow but if she hits you, you’ll feel it.

You need to be aware when it’s on its hind legs, and try to evade as soon as the red circle intensifies. Try to move further as the previous attack will be followed by more slams and this is where your ranged attacks will reign supreme.

In this phase, the Bear can also get up close to you and try to obliterate and a shield will be handy in such situations in case you’re unable to escape the ferocious attack.

Second Phase

Veil of Chaos can be used to evade the bear’s enraged attacks.

The second phase will unleash its ultimate power. Along with the previous attacks, it’ll unlock a Rage mode with faster movement speeds preventing you from dodging its enraged attacks.

You’ll either need to use a shield to block the attack or use Veil of Chaos to travel to a different location within her den. During this time, it may even run up to a close range and try to stun you. If it maneuvers this attack during its enraged mode, you’ll be wiped instantly.

After all these attacks, it’ll be vulnerable to attacks and if played wisely, you will be able to defeat it from a distance and occasional melee attacks.
