Keely the Frost Archer is a level 20 boss that uses ranged frost-based attacks. She can be found in the Farbane Woods Bandit Trapper Camp. The camp is full of enemies, so we recommend visiting and beginning your assault at the start of the night and clearing out as many minor enemies as possible. As always, players should also keep an eye out for roaming enemies like Tristan the Vampire Hunter and Lidia the Chaos Archer.

With enough time and enemies taken care of, players can engage Keely with the best shot at taking her down.

How to Beat Keely the Frost Archer

The three major pieces of this fight are Keely's three-pronged ice arrow attack, her ice volley area of effect attack (AoE), and her ability to turn invisible.

The best advice for this fight is to stay moving and stay focused. Keely will continually fire at the player and then cloak herself away between shots. It's the player's job to avoid those attacks while tracking the warping effect caused by invisibility as she moves.

There are a handful of opportunities to damage Keely. The best ones would be while she's relocating to shoot from a different position and while she's casting her three-pronged attack. We don't recommend trying to attack during her AoE as the AoE nodes will spawn underneath the player regardless of where they are — and they won't damage Keely. If they must, it would be in their best interest to use their own ranged abilities.

As one of the earlier bosses, Keely shouldn't pose much of a problem. However, if players find themselves having trouble, they can always re-gear themselves and try again.
