How to Defeat Michella’s Followers

The followers of Mikella play an important role in the main plot of the Shadow of the Erdtree add-on. Before the battle with the final boss in Enir-Ilim, you will have to meet them one last time, and how this meeting goes will directly depend on the decisions you make. We will consider the worst-case scenario and tell you how to come out of this difficult situation as a winner.

The fight is generally simple, but becomes more difficult as the number of participants increases. Depending on your choices throughout the expansion, some characters may switch sides, not show up for the fight, or not live to see it at all. Below you’ll find some helpful tips for when all of Mikella’s followers show up for the fight.

If you are reading this guide, you have probably already defeated Messmer the Impaler and burned the roots of the twisted tree to get to Enir-Ilim, where Mikella himself should be located.

However, once you defeat the Horned Warrior mini-boss and reach the huge sand room, your path will be blocked by Leda the Needler. After a short conversation with her, it will become clear that a battle is inevitable.

WEAKNESSES OF MICHELA’S FOLLOWERS

Before rushing into battle with a whole crowd of enemies, it would be logical to study the fighting style and vulnerabilities of these experienced warriors.

We’ve listed them in the order they enter the arena after each fighter reaches a certain minimum health, so there may be several of them in the arena at any one time.

  • Freya, the Red-Mane Knight: Attacks quickly and frequently, but remains vulnerable to counterattacks and most damage types.
  • Rogovest: Has problems with balance and stability, so can be easily stunned or knocked down.
  • Mur: Well protected by thick armor and infecting with red rot with his powerful blows, but extremely clumsy, so you will often have the opportunity to land a sneaky stab in his back.
  • Dane Dryleaf: Attacks very aggressively, but takes a lot of damage from all types of attacks and takes a long time to drink a potion .
  • Needler Leda: Occasionally uses magic , making her more vulnerable in close combat. Also prone to losing her balance.

HOW TO DEFEAT MICHELLA’S FOLLOWERS

The battle against the followers of Michela can be quite simple, especially if you have completed the quests of Ansbach and Tiolier , who can be summoned to help before the fight. You need to defeat all opponents in the arena to be considered the sole winner.

Followers will join the battle one by one, so you will have the opportunity not to fight a whole crowd of enemies, but to deal with them one by one, or at least two at a time, if you are agile and efficient enough.

  • To end a fight as quickly as possible and not turn it into a massacre, deal as much damage to each enemy as possible in the shortest amount of time. It is better not to be cautious and attack more often, concentrating on reducing their health rather than preserving your own.
  • The first two opponents should be easy to defeat, as Freya and Rogovest are fairly straightforward and vulnerable to most attacks. But in the case of Mur, whose armor is not easy to penetrate, we recommend attacking from behind. To do this, you can distract him with summoned creatures.
  • If you didn’t heed the previous advice and couldn’t deal with Moore quickly enough, Dane Dryleaf will join the fight, followed shortly by Leda the Needler, which will likely force you to fight all three at once.
  • In this case, we recommend choosing Dane first, as his armor and damage resistance are the lowest.
  • Next, focus on Needler Leda, but be prepared to dodge her spells, as she is not as easily stunned as, say, Dain or Horned.

If you follow this tactic, you will be able to defeat Mikella’s followers without any problems.

REWARDS FOR DEFEATING THE FOLLOWERS OF MIKELLA

After defeating the last follower of Mikella, you will receive 300 thousand runes, and as a trophy the Sword of Leda, but do not rush to get upset.

Returning to your world, you will find the bodies of the other participants in the battle and will be able to take their armor and weapons. Since the end of the add-on awaits you, this equipment is unlikely to be better than what you already have. On the other hand, coming to the final battle in the garb of one of Mikella’s followers will be very symbolic.
