How to kill the djinn in The Witcher 3

The djinn or genius is an elemental of the air is an ancient and sentient creature, very intelligent and of revengeful genius. It plays an important role in the original tales of the author Andrzej Sapkowski, being a source of misfortunes in The Last Wish, one of the foundations for the Netflix series.

In The Witcher 3, the djinn is an enemy that can do a lot of damage to Geralt if the player sees him unprepared. As an elemental monster, it is capable of casting high-level fire, ice and electricity spells in a very short time. In particular, the djinn that appears in the side quest “The Last Wish” is extremely difficult and resistant, if the option of “upscaling” (rebalancing) the levels of enemies is turned on.

To face a djinn and emerge victorious, have a good supply of dimerithium bombs, as they are capable of preventing magical attacks. Since the creature is unable to perform another type of attack, it will be without action for some time, allowing you to strike it with the silver sword.

The Elemental oil to the sword, especially higher versions is also essential in the fight, it will raise the damage caused by their attacks with the sword. Basically, the strategy is to dodge the attacks, drop the bombs, strike and move away, to recover energy and start the process over.

Finally, if you are at a high level when completing the “Last Wish” mission, it is highly recommended that you turn off enemy level upscaling before the battle; otherwise, this particular djinn will be incredibly resistant to his sword attacks, will have more powerful attacks and will be able to kill you easily with a single hit, making him a boss virtually impossible to defeat.
