Forspoken is an action-based, role-playing game, which follows the journey of Frey, who has been transported to the land of Athia, where she has to use her magical powers to get back home. Mutants are bosses that you can choose to engage with (though not required), but they are well-worth contending with to get their rewards.

Altered Borophagus Mutant Guide

You can engage with the Altered Borophagus by heading to The Sacred Peaks in Cipal or Shepherd’s Meadow/Humble Plain/Tanta’s Demesne in Visoria. You will need to have unlocked Zip to get to this mutant boss at the Secret Peaks.

How to defeat Altered Borophagus in Forspoken

Of the mutants you can encounter in Cipal, this is one of the harder ones as it is assisted by three enemies: Hylonomus, Harpagos, and Grugach. The boss itself has strong melee attacks that can do a lot of damage quickly. In the beginning of the battle, you’ll want to quickly dispatch the enemies supporting Altered Borophagus rather than the boss. This means you’ll need to use Purple Magic to defeat the Hylonomus, Red Magic against Harpagos, and any type of magic against the Gruagach.

Against the boss, you’ll want to be prepared to heal once you hear the boss roar as it gets a buff that makes it so it can drain your health in one hit. To defeat the Altered Borophagus, we recommend using Frey’s magic like Burst Shot, Implant, and Tendril. Once defeated, you will receive four Lucid Garlands as a reward.

When fighting this mutant in Shepherd’s Meadow, the fight has flying Vorona that are best countered with Frey’s Magic or Prav’s Magic using Scatter Shot or Disperse. The mutant in Tanta’s Demesne will have you battle Amphicyon, which are best countered using Frey’s Magic, like Disperse or Tendril.

Don’t forget to have Healing Draughts on hand to ensure you can heal yourself during battle–this is imperative!
