You first encounter Stormterror Dvalin during the Archon Quest Prologue, Act 3 and once you’ve defeated him there, this Trounce Domain will become available. This is a difficult battle that can be repeated weekly for high quality rewards, increasing in rarity based on what Level you take on. This is indicated by your current Adventure Rank, unlocking a new version every 5 levels. Additionally, you’ll always obtain one of the Northlander Prototype weapons that you can take to the Blacksmith and forge into 4 star weapons.



Stick to the sides to avoid this attack.

Dvalin will retreat to the back of the arena and then come swooping down across the center of the platform, dealing moderate damage to all who are struck by it. You can evade this by moving to either side of your current platform.


Dash to avoid this and then strike at his vulnerable head.

Dvalin will reel backwards before thrusting his head forward for a Bite, dealing moderate damage to those it hits. As he begins moving forward, dash to the left or right, this will open him up for strikes to his head.

Wind Breath

(1 of 2) Head to the claw away from Dvalin’s head

Head to the claw away from Dvalin’s head (left), or else you’ll be caught up in his Wind Breath. (right)

Dvalin will cling to each side of the current platform and use a Wind Breath attack at one of the sides that will begin sweeping across to the other side, dealing constant damage to any who are caught within it. Look for where Dvalin is facing and sprint to the opposite side, attacking the claws closest to you.

Energy Bombs

Simply dash from one side of the platform to the other to avoid this.

After attacking Dvalin’s weak point, he’ll retreat to the center and shoot sets of two Energy Bombs towards you, dealing moderate damage if they strike you. Keep moving from one side of the platform to the other to avoid these.

Energy Rain

(1 of 2) Walking on these platforms will cause continuous damage

Walking on these platforms will cause continuous damage (left), use the wind gusts to reach a platform where none are present. (right)

At certain HP thresholds throughout the battle, Dvalin will fly around and cause Energy Rain to strike the platforms, causing cracks across them that inflict damage over time while you stand on them. Ignore Dvalin and use the gusts of wind to glide across to a platform that is not impacted by Energy Rain.

Meteor Shower

(1 of 3) Look for the sigils on the ground

Once Dvalin is nearing defeat, he’ll cause sigils to appear around the platform before dropping Meteors on them, this will persist for the remainder of the battle while he cycles through his other attacks. Keep an eye out for the sigils on the ground and move to avoid the incoming blast.


Dvalin is a lot simpler than his massive frame may lead you to expect as he has a set pattern that he follows throughout, learn this and victory is assured. Be sure to bring a healer like Barbara or Qiqi so that you have a way of restoring HP should you be struck by any of his attacks.

The first thing you’ll notice is that there are multiple platforms all around the arena, this will be useful for later in the battle. You’ll also notice that Dvalin has a white bar under his HP gauge, this is his shield and you’ll need to deplete it to bring Dvalin to the ground and attack his weak spot, dealing direct damage in the process.

He’ll attack using the same pattern, first by using his Swoop attack, easily dodged by going to either side and then follow it up with Wind Breath. Look to what side he’s facing and dash over to the other claw to begin attacking it and deal damage to the shield. He’ll finish this up with his Bite attack, wait for him to reel back and then dash to the side to avoid the bite, dashing back over to his head to strike it for shield damage.

Once the shield is depleted, Dvalin will drop to the ground and his weak spot will become available. Quickly climb his head and strike away at it to deal direct damage before he regains his composure. At this point, you’ll deal with a phase transition and Dvalin will use Energy Rain followed by Energy Shower, look for platforms without the cracks and glide over to begin the previous phase from the start again.

Dvalin will keep this up until you take him under a quarter of his HP, at this point he’ll use Meteor Shower constantly until the end of the battle so keep an eye on the sigils on the ground to avoid the Meteors and keep the same strategy up to defeat him and claim your spoils.


Touch the Trounce Blossom to claim your rewards at the expense of 60 Resin.

Upon completion you must touch the Trounce Blossom and spend 60 Original Resin to claim the boss rewards. The drops consist of Artifacts and Character Ascension Materials along with a Northlander Prototype. You’ll have to wait until Monday 04:00 to attempt him again for the current week, additionally, this will complete a condition on the Battle Pass.
