Your only objective is to defeat Steropes.

He uses his club a lot and can easily hit you if you’re near him. Try dodging his attacks as they’re quite predictable.

Steropes also uses some AoE attacks. You may get hit by the waves on the water even if you’re behind him.

He also uses one attack where he can create a long-range wave towards you if you keep a distance.

Just dodge and hit him. Using skills like Overpower helps in the match.

Rinse and repeat and he’s dead.

Once Steropes is dead, you can loot the Steropes Bow from him and gain 44,550 XP.

That’s it for this quest. It’s a much easier fight than initially expected, even easier than the Kalydonian or Erymanthian Boars.
