This is a strategy guide on how to effectively solo-kill Vindicta, Zaros' general in The Heart, aimed at inexperienced players with relatively decent equipment. She can be fought alone or in a group.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Vindicta has 200,000 life points. The fight consists of 2 phases, with the second phase starting when Vindicta reaches 100,000 life points. Vindicta mounts Gorvek in the second phase. Compared to the other generals in The Heart, Vindicta has relatively few special attacks, but compensates with hard hitting auto-attacks. Vindicta can be fought efficiently with any combat style.

Requirements[edit | edit source]

Recommended[edit | edit source]

Getting there[edit | edit source]

  • After the player's first kill, the boss portal in War’s Retreat can be attuned to teleport players directly near Vindicta’s lobby entrance.
  • Besides walking to The Heart entrance, the desert amulet 2, 3, and 4 can teleport players to Nardah, which is relatively close to the entrance.

Attack rotation[edit | edit source]

Vindicta spawns in the middle of the arena and does two melee auto-attacks before starting her attack rotation as shown below:

Phase 1 Hurricane Attack.png 1 Auto-attack Attack.png 1 Auto-attack Attack.png (+ ranged attack Ranged.png) 1 Auto-attack Attack.png Fire wall Magic.png 3 Auto-attacks Attack.png
Phase 2 1 Auto-attack Attack.png 1 Ranged attack Ranged.png 1 Auto-attack Attack.png Fly away Fire wall Magic.png

Attacks[edit | edit source]

Phase 1 Phase 2
Yes check.svg Yes check.svg

Vindicta's regular auto-attacks deal melee damage. In phase 1, during one of her auto-attacks, every other player in the arena is dealt a ranged hit, which has a 100% hit chance.

Suggested action:

Phase 1 Phase 2
Yes check.svg X mark.svg

Vindicta hits all players within two spaces of her with a melee hit with 100% hit chance.

Suggested action:

Phase 1 Phase 2

Gorvek fires the first Fire wall around 23 seconds into the fight. A line of blue fire appears in the arena. Stepping in it results in taking rapid magic damage, up to 1000 every tick. As Vindicta rides Gorvek in phase 2, the placement of this attack becomes easily predictable.

Suggested action:

  • Run or Surge.png: RS3 Inventory image of SurgeSurge outside of the blue fire immediately.

Phase 1 Phase 2
X mark.svg Yes check.svg

Vindicta and Gorvek fly away to a random corner and proceed to do a Fire wall attack.

Suggested action:

  • When Vindicta and Gorvek land, cast Surge.png: RS3 Inventory image of SurgeSurge to close the distance and proceed with the fight.

Phase 1 Phase 2
X mark.svg Yes check.svg

After Vindicta's first melee auto-attack, her target is hit with a ranged auto-attack, that deals damage in a 3x3 area. Its damage increases each rotation. Like the ranged projectile in phase 1, this attack has 100% hit chance.

Suggested action:

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Dragonfire protection has no use during the fight, even though Gorvek's Fire wall attacks seem to be dragonfire.
  • Soul Split can be used in phase 2 after Vindicta & Gorvek fly away, since it takes relatively long before they attack again.
  • When using Sunshine and Death’s Swiftness, players can still benefit from its effects when fire wall flames cover the abilities’ area by standing near the outer edges of the visuals.
  • In phase 2, when Vindicta and Gorvek prepare to fly to one of the corners, use Slaughter, Fragmentation Shot, or Combust for their extra damage effects.
  • In phase 2, After Vindicta and Gorvek have moved to a corner, casting Surge (or Barge if melee) can be helpful to return to the boss while avoiding the fire wall.
  • As Vindicta and Gorvek are classified as melee-based, the Inquisitor staff is the best weapon in the game to use against them.

Recommendations[edit | edit source]

Levels[edit | edit source]

These levels are only a suggestion and are not required to kill this boss.

Inventory[edit | edit source]

Even without using scrolls, ripper demons are stronger than steel titans, but are significantly more expensive to summon.
