Fight the Raiders

When you speak to Rolf the Raider, he will ask you to come meet his new band of raiders. You’ll then need to follow him down along a path towards the dock, where you’ll come to a large gathering of raiders. You’ll then need to speak to him again to start the main part of this Mystery. Rolf will ask you to help him choose a leader for his band of raiders, and you’ll do this by going head-to-head with all three of them.

In the first phase of the fight, you’ll be required to fight both Ashild the Keen and Audbjorn at the same time. This can be quite a tricky fight, as you’ll have them both focusing solely on you. The best way to approach this fight is to first take down Ashild, as she is weaker, and then focus on Audbjorn. This fight requires lots of dodging and counter attacking in order to succeed. When you’re focusing on Ashild, make sure you have enough stamina to dodge both her attacks and Audbjorn, who will probably come at you from behind. Their attacks are indicated either by orange flashes or a red mist and some flashing runes. The latter indicates a strong power move that might temporarily incapacitate you and/or damage you for a lot more. You definitely want to dodge these, especially from Audbjorn. When they miss their power moves, they’ll be momentarily out of action and you’ll be able to get in a few good punches. Their weaker punches can also be parried by pressing ‘Q’.

(1 of 2) First, you'll need to take on both Audbjorn and Ashild in a fist fight

First, you'll need to take on both Audbjorn and Ashild in a fist fight (left), then you'll have to face the slightly weaker Thorgils of the Thick Head. (right)

When you have bested both Ashild and Audbjorn, you’ll then need to fight Thorgils of the Thick Head, who won’t be much of a fight at all, so you needn’t worry about a scary second phase. Just throw punches then dodge when he’s about to hit you back.

Once you’ve defeated all three, speak to Rolf again to complete the Mystery. You’ll earn 1,200 EXP and 40 Silver for this fight.
