The rules are the same as with any other V Blood Carrier. Therefore, make sure to remove any hostile mobs of underlings as the fight commences.

  • Whirling Slash: You will be attacked by four whirling swords that form a cone shape. Therefore, make sure to have a good enough distance from the Captain in order to dodge the weapons. 
  • Archer Reinforcements: The boss calls upon a Militia Archer as his sidekick. The total number will vary, depending upon how many players are fighting him at the time. 
  • Lunging Toss: The Captain rears up and attacks you as they toss you behind. This will have a stun effect. 
  • Blades of the Militia: He spins around quickly and hops around the arena, alongside attacking the player with several Whirling Slashes from all sides. 
  • Spinning Slam: An above the head slam, with a straight spinning sword attacking players in a particular direction.

After you defeat Octavian the Militia Captain, there are a variety of prizes on offer. These include: 

  • Mirror Strike: An Ultimate Ability which allows players to rush ahead and inflict heavy damage on enemies, while lessening the power of targets. 
  • Anvil blueprint: This is imperative to make top-level weapons and armour. These include Dawnthorn Regalia and Dark Silver weapons. The latter will take Dark Silver Ingots to craft. All of it will be great rewards from the Captain. Therefore, you will be a great position after defeating him.
