First, find the Altar in the middle of the Shroud where you can respawn in case you are defeated. From there, look behind you to find a path that takes you far underground.

Climb down and walk down the stairs until you see the red luminescent Shroud Root that you must destroy. Move towards it but be careful since you will be greeted by the first boss of the game, a huge corrupted warrior.

Note that you have only five minutes to defeat the boss and destroy the structure before the Shroud takes you. Once defeated, your path is clear to attack the root and clear the well. Use an axe to chop down the root otherwise you won’t be able to destroy it in time.

The Fell Thunderbrute, the first boss in Enshrouded, takes significant extra damage when struck from behind. He also takes good damage from blades, unlike your regular early-game shroud pawns. The cooked wolf meat, water, and a sharp weapon will be all that you need here. Just make sure to pay attention to its attack pattern. Although this boss is quite predictable, one mistake can cost you the fight. That said, if you craft some Bandages, you might be able to withstand a couple of attacks from him.

Below, we’ve included a list of key tips you’ll want to make sure you check off before and while you’re taking on the Fell Thunderbrute in Enshrouded so you can emerge victorious.

  • Cook wolf meat and consume it for extra health
  • Drink water before the fight for the extra Stamina regeneration
  • Gather Metal Scraps and craft a Scrappy Sword
  • Approach the boss and wait for its attack
  • If the boss brings his weapon to his side, dodge away
  • If the boss tries to kick you or lifts his weapon, dodge sideways and strike its back
  • Walk away, recover some stamina, and repeat the process

That’s everything you need to know on how to clear the Elixir Well in Enshrouded and beat the Fell Thunderbrute.
