To unlock the Griffin, Clive must start the quest “Blacksmith’s Blues”. To find this, I recommend you must interact with August in the place called The Hideway, inside The Mess. This will initiate the quest and ask you to talk with Blackthorne.
After speaking with Blackthorne, you must interact with Charon. Next, there will be the cut scene, after which you must use the Hunt Board to locate Griffin’s location. You will find Griffin sightings, on the hunt board which will guide you to explore Lostwing, crossing towards Caer Norvent River Gate.
Starting from the Lostwing, make your way towards the Caer Norvent. Upon reaching Caer Norvent River Gate, you will find the Griffin above the west side castle wall, which will jump down on you.
Fighting The Griffin
Countering The Attacks
You can dodge Griffin’s attack easily if executed at the right time. Some of its fighting mechanics are different from other monsters. There are three attacks that you must counter to win the fight.
In the first attack, the Dozmare will fly into the air, however, there will be no wind under it. This means you are about to be attacked so you must dodge the incoming hit by relocating from where you are standing.
In the second attack, the Dozmare will fly in the air with the wind beneath it. Upon coming down, there will be an AoE impact around you. To counter this, you must use double dodge since the AoE attack has a lot of range.
In the third attack, you will find that the Griffin will fly in the air and start moving in circles. This means that it is about performing a special ability called the Noble Dive. After flying in the air, the bird rushes down and impacts the ground with an energy attack. This must be counter by dodging right before the Dozmare hits the ground.
Defeating The Griffin
Apart from constantly dodging the attacks, you must counterattack after he performs one of the three techniques mentioned. This will increase your chances of catching him off guard before he resets. There are some tips for helping you defeat the bird.
You can use the Berserker Ring which will help to counterattack with increased damage after dodging Dozmare’s attacks.
You can use Garuda Abilities such as Gouge and Ariel Blast to track down the enemy and avoid getting hit.
Use the Limit Break ability when the Griffin is down and stationary.
You will receive the following rewards for defeating the Griffin.
55 Ability Points
You will also receive Scarletite and Meteorite rare materials.
After defeating the Griffin, you must talk to the injured man and interact with him. Moreover, return to Blackthorne and hand over the Treated leather given to you by the stranger.
This is all you need to know on how to locate and defeat The Griffin. Remember to stay focused during the fight and bring upgraded gear which can be more efficient. Using Garuda’s abilities will give you advantage over your opponent so you have more chances of surviving on the battlefield.
