We’ve gathered some of the best advice on how to beat Lidia the Chaos Archer in V Rising.

Lidia the Chaos Archer is one of the next ranged V Blood boss players can hunt down and defeat to gain a new unique V Blood ability. She can be found roaming the Farbane Woods with no fixed point of encounter — meaning players should keep their eyes peeled when traveling throughout the region. At level 26, she’s no easy target.

Here’s what you need to know about taking her down.

How to Beat Lidia the Chaos Archer in V Rising

Where Keely fired off her attacks all at once, Lidia is a much more strategic opponent. She staggers her attacks to keep enemy vampires on their toes as much as possible. There are two attacks she uses in battle: Chaos Arrow and Chaos Volley.

Chaos Arrow is her first attack which, like Keely, comes in a trio. However, unlikely Keely, all three arrows are not fired at once. Instead, Lidia fires on the vampire enemy one at a time — adjusting her aim each time to try and hit the player.

Chaos Volley is a similar mechanic where each area of effect (AoE) arrow ring will appear shortly after the other either directly on top of or — if the player is moving — where they were standing a moment beforehand.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, she can also turn invisible and will move to get into a better position between attacks. How thoughtful!

Mobility is key in this fight. Since Lidia can target the player several times, they should never be standing in the same space moment to moment. Players may be able to think of the Keely fight as a warm-up to Lidia: getting a grip on their agility before facing an opponent who is truly unforgiving of a vampire still dealing with the vestiges of rigor mortis.

Aside from this, there are two ways to approach this fight:

  1. Beat her at her own game with ranged attacks from abilities or a crossbow, or mid-range attacks with a spear.
  2. Stay close and attack from behind whenever possible.

After bringing down Lidia the Chaos Archer, players will unlock the Chaos Volley ability.

V Rising is currently available in Early Access on Steam.
