Master The Dodge
Blocking a War Elephant is, well, generally a bad idea. You want to get used to dodging every attack. They do a tusk swipe that can be a little misleading. As it pulls it’s head one side and thrusts the other. The initial movement will not damage you so wait for the actual attack thrust to dodge. Dodge towards the elephant where possible to get in a few attacks from the rear.
You Charge Attack is critical in these battles. Being able to launch a charge attack for nearly 10,000 damage can be a fantastic way of whittling down the enemy quickly. Bring melee weapons that have perks on them to aid with Adrenaline. We’ve got a list of perks available in our AC Origins weapon perks guide.
Charge the Charge
War Elephant’s do a charge attack. They dip their head down and run straight at you. It’s a very narrow path attack so you only have to be a step or two to the side. At the end of this attack they are stunned for a couple of seconds. This is the perfect time to build up your Adrenaline and release your Charge attack.
