Combat tactics to beat Jenny o’ the woods

According to Witcher Fandom, and Best Witcher 3 bestiary, The night wraiths is mostly similar to Noonwraith.

The only major difference between them is the latter appears in the field in the broad daylight of noon.

While the former hunt only at night while the moon hangs in the sky.

Jenny o’ the woods is a Nightwraith which can be found in a day if you are patient.

Here are the fighting tactics that you can use to easily beat Jenny o’ the woods or any other similar wraiths –

Apply the Specter Oil on your Silversword

Off course, the silver sword is for the obvious monsters and you are going to use that as well in this Quest.

Just make sure that you apply the Specter Oil on that sword before fighting will begin.

Since wraiths or any other Specter-type monster is weak against that oil, it will increase your chances of fighting.

Made them corporeal using Yrden or moon dust

Specters are mostly incorporeal, most of the time your sword will not work if you use it directly.

To deal sufficient damage in the process of beating them, you must make them use the Yrden with the swift sword attacks.

Use Bombs to destroy its Dobbpegangers

Bombs, more specifically moon dust and Dimeritium bombs are very effective against the Nightwraith or noonwraith’s doppelgangers.

When you weaken her enough, she will split into different copies which attack you.

Using the Bombs you destroy those copies and the wraith will force you to reveal its true self.

Once that happens continue using Yrden with swift sword attacks.

And another thing, Do not forget to dodge her attacks.

Depending on your level, you might need to dodge a lot during this fight.
