Winnehild is a character in Octopath Traveler. She is an optional boss at the end of the Warbringer Shrine. Once defeated, she will bestow the Warmaster job.

StoryEdit

Winnehild is one of the gods of the Orsterra pantheon. The tome Trial of the Twelve, Volume VII describes how the twelve gods sealed away a “terrible power,” the thirteenth god Galdera.

BattleEdit

Winnehild will begin battle with 2 actions per turn and 5 shields. After recovering from a break, Winnehild will increase her shields to 8 after the first time, and then to her maximum of 12 after the second.

At 50% health, Winnehild will increase her actions per turn to 3 and will begin using more attacks. When she emotes Winnehild obtains all weapons, she will gain an aura which increases her actions per turn to 6. The effect is removed on a break.

Upon emoting Behold the ultimate warrior!, Winnehild will change her weaknesses to the second set.

  • Behold the ultimate warrior...! // Winnehild drew all weapons!: Used once Winnehild reaches 25% health of her maximum HP. The following actions occur:
    • Winnehild's weaknesses change to the second set.
    • Winnehild increases her actions per turn to six for the next turn only.
    • Uses War Cry if not broken before Winnehild's next action.
      • War Cry: Heavy physical attacks, targets entire party. Hits six times, one for each weapon type.

StrategyEdit

Since Winnehild is primarily weak to magic and can counter physical attacks, first defeating Dreisang to obtain the Sorcerer job is recommended to break her more quickly.

All of Winnehild’s attacks are physical, so a reliable strategy is to first defeat Balogar and give the Runelord job to Tressa. Transfer Rune and Sidestep will result in Winnehild being unable to damage the party.

If you have Olberic, then equipping him with saving grace and overhealing him and using incite will cause Winneheld to focus on Olberic so your other members will stay alive.
