How to beat a gliuk, locations in Zelda: Kingdom’s Tears

The Gleeok is a new family of sub-bosses in Legend of Zelda, emerging after the events of the Troubles in the Legend of Zelda The Legend of Zelda: Kingdom’s Tears. Not only are they scary – and really challenging – but there are four variations on the theme here.

The sheer power of these monsters makes them very scary. As the summary says, “Fighting it alone is not recommended.” You’ll want to prepare not only with the right equipment, but with the right strategies.

Where to find Gleuk in Kingdom’s Tears

There are many Glue in Kingdom Tearswith each of the three elements: fire (Gluck flame), ice (Frost Gliuck) and thunder (Thunder Gleuk).

There too the fourth The alternative, King Gleeok, which includes each of the three elements to make for a really tough fight.

The three easiest places to find these fearsome monsters are mapped out below. For Flame Gleeok, it is Spectacular rock in Gerudo Canyon. For Frost Gleeok, it’s the southern tip of Gerudo summit. For Thunder Gleeok it is South Heren Lake.

How to defeat Gleoc in Kingdom’s Tears

Each Gleeok is a variation on a theme. We’ll cover Flame Gleeok in detail here, since it’s the first thing you should do. If you fancy getting cracked into Frost Gleeok, know that it shoots ice at you; If you touch him while he is on the battlefield, you will instantly freeze. Meanwhile, Thunder Gleeok shoots its light at you, so find and equip your Rubber Armor set before you head into battle!

How to prepare for Flame Gleeok

The first thing you need to do here is get ready. We highly recommend you start at the Gerudo Highlands Skyview tower, launch yourself, and fly northeast to the sky island with the pool on it.

This is a great starting point (literally) for two reasons: Your best bet is to start with an air attack, so aim your Obi-Wan and rejoice at having higher ground.

Secondly, and most importantly, this island has fairies. These little pink caterpillars will automatically revive you with a few hearts if you die, so it’s worth taking a few minutes to catch them. There is a very good chance that you will die at least once for this fight to crash.

Once you’ve caught the fairies, it’s time to gear up – although this is Flame Gleeok, you’ll need to fight off the cold And Resist the heat, because there’s a strong chance this will take an entire game day, and the temperature in the desert fluctuates wildly between day and night. One point of each will work fine.

After that, prepare your weapons. Base damage is high here, and ranged attacks are essential, as Gleeok’s eyes are its only weak point.

Get Lynel’s mighty bow if you have it (the same bow you may have used to defeat Lynel) and check you have plenty of arrows and ice fruit (or similar; 20 total will be more than enough) to fuse to said arrows.

Finally, craft a snowboard melee weapon. We recommend using a shaft to reach, with an extension Lisafels Glacier Horn (or similar stronger item), and a sword with an ice fuse.

(Note: For Frost Gleeok, you’ll want to use the item you get from Flame Gleeok here; for Thunder Gleeok, which is weak to wind, just use whatever you’ve got which provides high non-elemental damage.)

How to beat Flame Gleeok

Fly in front of Gleeok and prepare to bow. with slowing time (Kingdom Tears Activates automatically matrix The time you aim the bow in the air), melt the ice fruit and hit each eye with an ice arrow. It is important to hit each eye to deplete its health bar to stun it; Attacks on the rest of the body do no harmAnd if you get too close while he’s not startled, he’ll blow you away with a gust of wind.

If you run out of icy fruit (or similar), regular arrows will work, but you’ll need to hit each eye twice a few times to stun them.

This next part is crucial. Drop to the ground (unfold your paraglider at the last second to avoid damage), run under the rock that Gleeok and Ascend are on. When you reach the top, as time stops, rotate the camera to see how you landed and if you’ve reached the right spot.

Gleeok’s head will either be on the ground or hanging over a ledge – which is why we recommended using a spear. Depending on how he goes down, use the equipment you feel is easier and hit the attack button to get him up.

Now, with his head out of reach, we need this – jump off the ledge, straighten the bow, spin, and shoot each eye with an ice arrow again. Basically rinse and repeat.

Once Gleeok reaches its last third (or so) of health, the easy part is over. He is about to go to Sephiroth and use Meteor.

From now on, Gleeok doesn’t come down, so stand under the rock and wait for the screen to shake from the impact. Climb up immediately and get ready to ride the upstream. If you’re going up really early and the ground isn’t on fire, look up. If you see this button, do not exit by pressing B.

The time is right, and you can ride the upstream to eye level and rig your bow. At this point, you know what to do…let it hit the dirt and whale on it one last time.

What rewards do you get from Gleeok?

Each Gleeok will drop three types of items – its Courage (use it to craft a “powerful” elixir) and its Wing, which not only grants an impressive +24 wick attack power, but also makes your arrows and thrown weapons fly farther.

But while these items are indeed respectable, they pale in comparison to the real reason we’re here – the Gleeok Flame Horn. At Fuse’s +30 attack power, it’s one of the most powerful items in the game. Larger dragon scales, by comparison, only add +16 attack.

Most importantly, this item is extremely useful against its cousin, Frost Gleeok, and the ultimate Gleeok, King Gleeok, which has one head per item.
