Quincy is located in the Farbane Woods. You will have to head to the northern areas in order to locate this boss. That being said, you will be encountering a decent amount of enemies along the way. Therefore, getting worn out before even reaching the battle is a real threat. 

You will need to head directly north from the Forgotten Cemetery if you want to reach the barricade as soon as possible. Consequently, taking down the barricade is yet another issue you will need to face. Thus, make sure to pack a fair bit of explosives just in case. 

Bandit King’s Ability Rundown

The attacks of the Bandit King tend to rotate between a total of four combinations. With each ability having its own unique affinities, it can be really hard to take him down unless you’re aiming for the gaps in-between. 

With that being said, here is how Quincy’s abilities work in general:

  • Ground Shattering Tri-Slam: The boss slams the ground, thereby creating three conical crack waves that are followed by explosions. 
  • Shield Charging Bash: Chargers forward in the direction of the player in order to deal a sizable amount of damage. 
  • Reflective Shield: Goes into ultra defense mode and blocks any and every incoming damage. 
  • Enraged Shield Charge: Quincy will use Shield Charging Bash three times before getting stunned for a couple of seconds. 

The most opportune time of all inning The Bandit King is as soon as his Enrage Shield Charge goes off. Aside from that, the Ground Shattering Tri-Slam is the hardest to dodge. However, even that has a certain delay that can be taken advantage of.

Make sure to reach at least level 38 before heading into battle since being lower level can make this game feel more like Elden Ring instead. That being said, it’s best to initiate the battle at nighttime to be as strong as possible.

You can take your time assassinating the enemies around Quincy as long as you’re out of his range. However, any kind of damage to him will initiate the boss fight. Ideally, you would want to have a one vs one, but if that’s not the case then make sure to kill the soldiers first. 


All in all, Quincy The Bandit King is still one of the lower leveled bosses in the land of Vardoran. Therefore, its attack patterns are rather easy to predict and dodge. Therefore, you will most likely win the battle as long as you manage to engage him in isolated combat.
