Golden Wolflord location

Golden Wolflord location

The Golden Wolflord is located at the south of Tsurumi Island. There’s a Waypoint Teleporter right besides its arena. Golden Wolflord is a World Boss, so it respawns a few minutes after you defeat it, and it has no rewards limit. As long as you’ve got Resin you can keep farming it.

Basic strategy, how to defeat this new boss

The Golden Wolflord keeps floating around so the main strategy is to bring ranged characters with you, especially Ningguang.

There are a few times however when he drops to the ground. You’ll have a big chance to deal a lot of damage with a close-range character after the Golden Wolflord does its big tornado attack. It’ll stay dizzied on the ground and immobile for a few seconds. Good chance of burst DMG.

Just like all the other Rifthounds enemies, the Golden Wolflord will trigger the Corrosion status effect if you get hit by any of its attacks. So bring a lot of HP recovery food or your Barbara to the fight.

How to break the shield of the Golden Wolflord in Genshin Impact

Wolf heads you need to break

At some point during the fight, the Golden Wolflord will create a shield nullifying damage, and spawn three wolf heads around the field. You’ll need to break these three wolf heads to destroy the Golden Wolflord’s barrier. And using Geo DMG breaks them much faster.

Once you’ve broken all three, the boss will get stunned and fall to the ground for several seconds. Even if its only mid HP at that point, if you’ve got good DPS this should be when you can end the fight.

Ningguang pretty much makes the Golden Wolflord boss battle trivial if you have her properly ascended and geared up with artifacts. You probably have at least one other Catalyst user with Wanderer’s Troupe Artifacts with good substats right? Just give those to Ningguang.
