Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: How to Defeat the First Daughter of Lerion

Last Edited:

There are three Daughters of Lerion scattered across the world, appearing as Mysteries on your map. Face a Daughter of Lerion to be drawn into a challenging 1v1 combat scenario to the death.

See the list below for Daughter of Lerion locations, and the best tips to defeat them in battle.

  • Location: Spalda Fens, Grantebridgescire. Seek out a large arena among the decaying swamps north of the Isle of Ely Monastery in northeastern Grantebridgescire to find a desecrated body laid out below a large dead tree.

Battle Tips and Strategies: Goneril is likely the first of the Daughters of Lerion you’ll meet in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. A group of deranged cultists who revel in death and decay, these women are powerful fighters with the ability to tap into the mystical arts to confuse and disorient their opponents.


Goneril attacks with twin blades at a frightening pace, and can frequently employ both strong and unblockable attacks if you aren’t paying attention. Despite the low relative power of the region, Goneril can deal a massive amount of damage if you aren’t prepared. We recommend configuring your skills to augment your chosen gear loadout – and picks skills like Brush with Death to gain openings when dodging attacks. Heavy Dual Wield will also let you combine longer reaching weapons with a shield for increased defense, which can be invaluable in this fight.

Goneril will employ unblockable strikes that will come from leaping slashes, giving you a small amount of time to dodge out of the way. She can also come at you with a heavy spinning strike with a second follow-up attack, or a forward jump thrust, which can be parried to stun her. If these attacks weren’t bad enough, she’ll constantly teleport in a flash of light around the arena to try and hit you when you least expect it.

Sometimes, she may even summon a phantom to leap at you with a spinning attack that can’t be blocked, so quickly dodge to the side to get around it and continue the attack.

Take note that after successfully parrying her to knock her off balance, she’ll always stumble backward before kneeling down for a moment. This is a prime opportunity to strike, but without a long reaching weapon you may not be able to counter quick enough to hit her – instead wasting valuable seconds chasing her to attack back.

Once you’ve dealt around half her health in damage, she’ll start summoning a green mist around her. Quickly back out of the circle before it explodes to get ready for the next phase.

At this point, she’ll start to summon more clouds of poisonous gas. You’ll have a brief moment to spot the circles where they’ll appear – so stay out of them at all times, or you’ll take increasing poison damage until death. Find the spots where the gas clouds abate and make your stand there instead.

Goneril will make even more use of teleporting attacks, as well as summoning her phantom, so make dodging your biggest priority (Brush with Death works extremely well for giving you time to counter). Don’t try to employ ranged attacks, as her weak point is on her back and very hard to see with all her teleporting. However, melee abilities can do wonders for pinning her down, such as the Valkyrie Dive that can track her close range teleports, or the Rush and Bash after a parry to pin her down and deal massive damage if you can time your hits.

The fight really comes down to reaction time, and getting ready to parry or dodge each time she teleports. Once you get the pattern down, finish the woman off for good to gain Thor’s Breeches, and Goneril’s Dagger – which appears to be more of a key than a weapon.
