How to beat the Guard Captain in Tunic

To defeat the Guard Captain in Tunic, you need to be patient and keep moving. We recommend killing the regular guard in the room with the Guard Captain first. Once that enemy is out of the way, you can focus on the Guard Captain.

Wait for the Guard Captain to charge up an attack. Its blade will glow pink. Then, dodge the strike and attack with your own strikes. Be ready to dodge the next attack and continue this until you defeat the Guard Captain. If you run low on stamina, run away until it recharges.
