How to Defeat Altered Goliath in Forspoken

Every enemy in this game has a weak and resistant element to them. Altered Goliath is resistant to purple and red magic. These are the magic you will get first during the story. But since the boss is resistant to it, they will not deal much damage. And since the boss will also heal constantly, resistant magics are really a not good choice for this encounter.

That being said, you can still beat him using red or purple magic if your damage output is higher than the boss’s healing rate. But it is recommended to use blue magic for this encounter. This boss is weak to blue magic. So it will deal a lot of damage and offset the healing of the boss.

Another thing you can use in this encounter is poison. Poison spells come in handy in this situation. Poison the boss at the start of the encounter, then switch to blue magic. The poison will constantly drain the boss’s HP while the boss tries to heal itself. So this offsets Goliath’s healing quite a bit and helps to deal with the boss even faster.
