Explore a dynamic and beautiful open world set against the brutal backdrop of England’s Dark Ages.

Lost Drengr are some of the many side boss fights you will be able to partake in during the game. 

These boss battles are among the toughest in the game and can pose a mighty challenge. 

One of the first ones you can encounter is Erik Loyalskull.

Here's how to defeat him! 



Erik Loyalskull is one of the strongest Lost Drengr, and can be found within the starting area of the game.

Hidden in a cave, the NPC will have a conversation with you; before asking if you would like to fight.

Be very prepared going into this battle, as Erik will come out swinging right away.

He has four powerful moves that he will utilize in the battle. 

  • Throwing Axes
  • Overhand attack 
  • Heavy overhand attack
  • Runic Attack

You are going to be able to land most of your attacks by dodging/parrying his basic overhand attack.

This is the weakest move he has readily available and can be easily parried. 

Legacy Gaming has posted a YouTube video noting their experience with Erik Loyalskull.

Best of luck taking down all six Lost Drengr
