Ah, winning that first fight against a boss in Evil Hunter Tycoon! It’s not going to be easy, but it will happen sooner rather than later if you read my guide on how to win the Boss Battles in the game.
You need a bit of patience, some trial and error and a solid bunch of heroes in order to defeat your first boss, but it’s not as difficult as it seems when you start out. So without further ado, let’s see how to defeat bosses in Evil Hunter Tycoon!
First of all, in order to unlock the Boss Battles, you need to build the Boss Horn structure in your town. You can access it from the Construction menu and you should build it sooner rather than later – even if you can’t win boss fights yet.
How to Boss Battles work in Evil Hunter Tycoon?
Once you have placed the Boss Horn, the option to summon a Boss appears in the upper right corner of the screen. The battle itself will take place in the North Eastern side of the map, above the Land of the Fallen.
When you hit the button, your Hunters will start heading toward the Boss Battle Area. There’s a 3 minute waiting time, during which your Hunters will heal, eat and rest (if needed).
Once the waiting time is over, the fight will begin even if not all hunters are ready. However, that will never happen unless you are lacking items.
When the battle starts, it last for 10 minutes. During the time, your Hunters can die and return to the town, but if they manage to get healed quickly, they will be back to fight.
After completing a boss battle in the game – no matter if you lost or won, there’s a waiting time involved before you can summon a new boss. You can also end a boss battle early by tapping the same icon in the upper right corner.
How to Win Boss Battles in Evil Hunter Tycoon?
Defeating those bosses won’t be easy: not only that they deal a ton of damage and they have tons of health, but they also summon mobs to attack you every now and then. So yes, we can say that these are some of the most difficult fights you’ll encounter in the game.
I tried a few times early on and my crew was simply obliterated: they were around level 50, with minimal weapons and equipment. Even when the Boss Battle quest came, my heroes were not ready.
I then ignored Boss Battles for a while and focused on building my squad. That was the best approach, as next time I tried the fight, I won it in less than a couple of minutes. Here’s how my squad looked like:
As you can see, I had 8 Hunters, all of at least level 100 (all but one reincarnated once and a few level above the starting one).
They also had a full set of basic items: a weapon, armor, gloves and shoes (some other things as well) and some of them were enchanted. So I had a pretty solid crew that had absolutely no problem defeating the boss.
I believe that with a full set of items (ideally necklaces too and maybe some potions), you can defeat the Boss on Easy difficulty with a full set of level 65 or above hunters. It might not be as fast as a couple of minutes, but I think that’s the limit above which you can start winning battles.
Or just wait, like I did, until you really max out your squad and start battling then without worries and with minimal resource losses.
What to do if you lose boss battles? Here is the bottom line:
- level up your Hunters (do Bounties to level them up faster and send them in the most advanced area, as they earn more XP therE)
- craft weapons and armor and equip it
- enchant your items at least a couple of times each
- buy some potions if all of the above still don’t help much
There isn’t really much pressure to beat the bosses early on since you don’t really need the materials they drop, but once you can easily beat them, make it a habit to fight them over an over again, whenever the timer runs out.
I would go as far as saying that it’s worth switching from Normal back to Easy just to complete a boss fight, then switch back to the more advanced level!
