Skeleton Key Boss
King Borr


The Spring Test Realm 2021 is finally out! It’s time to dive into some of the juiciest parts of the updates- the Skeleton Key bosses! The first of these is King Borr, found in the Savarstaad Pass in Grizzleheim.

King Borr’s Location


King Borr can be found at the spot where I am currently standing in this picture. His sigil is very close to the Teleporter Hub, as well as the passage to Northguard.

Borr is similar to Krampus, in a way. Just like in the Krampusgarten, you have the option to choose the difficulty of the duel. Regardless of the difficulty, you will still be facing this King, and his faithful minion Grendelynn.

  • King Borr must be defeated before Grendelynn can be defeated, so hit as hard as you can.
  • Beguiling the minion the turn of your hit will also disable the intercept aspect of Grendelynn.

Drops


All of the items from the Grizzleheim Lore Pack are available from Borr. In particular, Spellements for Ratatoskr’s Spin, Hammer of Thor, and Grendel’s Amend drop here aplenty, even from the Wooden Key Version. This boss is even better than Loremaster for farming these  particular spells, since the spellements can be traded over.

  • How do I get those spells perm trained Ratatoskr’s spin Hammer of Thor and Grendel’s Amends what is the best way or what are any other ways if any more

    • Late reply but you get can get spellements dropped from King Borr which you can use to unlock the spell in the spellewriting tab. Other ways to get the spell include crafting them by getting the recipe from Grady in Avalon or farming Loremaster for the spell. I’d say your best bet would be to just do King Borr though.

  • The stone key King Borr also removes unprotected feints.
