Adventure Guide

Though she once served as Odyn's right hand, the vengeful Helya will stop at nothing to ensure her ancient curse binds the titan keeper to the Halls of Valor. No longer satisfied with ruling her shadowy realm, Helya now commands her vast kvaldir army to plague the lands of the living.

Overview

Helya uses her supernatural powers to conjure orbs, taint foes, breathe sludge, and crush her enemies. Upon reaching 65% health, Helya departs beneath the sea, assaulting the raid from afar with her denizens of Helheim or ocean waves from the Maw of Souls. Defeating Helya's tentacles wounds her, causing her to return to the shore. Helya then orders the last stand of Helheim, invoking both the minions of Helheim and her supernatural powers until her defeat.
