Walkthrough[edit | edit source]
A general strategy that will successfully wear him down is to repeatedly use the blocking skill until you have enough adrenaline to use the knockdown skill. This will also ensure that you can rapidly follow up with the two hard-hitting skills while he's knocked down. While blocking, also watch for his hard-hitting thunderfist skill and use your interrupt to block it.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Thunderfist's Brass Knuckles can be used in Dwarven Boxing and with 9 Dagger Mastery, do more damage than the regular brass knuckles.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The name is a reference to two boxing matches featuring Muhammad Ali: "The Rumble in the Jungle" against George Foreman and the "Thrilla in Manila" against Joe Frazier. Several of Bjorn's quotes during the fight are references to quotes by Ali.
- 'I have the heart of a champion' is a nod towards Homestar Runner villain Strongbad's drawing of Lil Brudder.
