We're off to the Island of Lesbos in the north east corner of the map. On the southwest part of the island is a quest called Romancing the Stone Garden.
You'll end up in front of the temple and be sent to retrieve some items a spear and a key. The spear is on a mercenary and the key is on the island of Chios in the Huntress Village. If you've finished the Daughters of Artemis questline you can walk right in and grab the key. Once you have the key and spear return to the temple in the Petrified Forrest.

I recomend having your torch out as you wander through the temple before the fight to help spot snakes before they attack you.
Once you get to fight Medusa she switches between shooting a laser at you and exploding the ground you're standing on. The laser is easy to avoid just keep one of the pillars in the arena between you and her while shooting around it. When she teleports after taking damage be prepared to dodge her AoE ground attack. That is really all there is to this fight but it is a long one. Don't get impatient, keep yourself healed and if you need more arrows there are a few racks around the arena.
zDrUnKeNMoNkEyzHey quick question..what level is she..I'm round 35 and am noticing some of the creatures I can, while others are way higher

FlabyoWhile she’s doing her beam attack you can usually land charged headshots with the bow without exposing yourself to the attack if you lean out to the right of whatever pillar you’re standing behind.

Seeker74As a side note, if you are the leader of the Sisters then another quest on the island is that much easier. Of course, by this point, you are probably level 50 anyway.

AradorWow who's the idiot who put this BS in the game, there's no working up to this level of fight at all during everything else in the game, it goes from 5 to 10 in an instant. But I shouldn't be surprised these are the same guys who made Syndicate with that horribly unbalanced DLC

TheLightMasterThis is definitely seen as the final boss of the game from a difficulty perspective. Key is to keep peppering her with fire arrows and land overcharged attacks on her once you defeat the 3 phases of her soldiers and her shield goes down. Keep poles in between you and her to avoid being slowed down and turned to stone. If she gets you, use the dodge attack to get moving again. Also to avoid the lighting attacks, start moving to a new position as soon as she goes to put her sword (or whatever it is) in the ground. I really struggled with this at level 51 but it was much easier when I hit level 59.

hella awesomeStruggled at level 47 Assassin/crit build. Came back at level 50 and it was easier (hard mode) but still took me a handful of tries. The most difficult part were the stone warriors, especially the 3rd wave. With poison arrows, I could 2-3 shot each warrior in the first two waves. So it was pretty simple to kill most of them before they got close to me.

The third wave has double the warriors. I could pick off a few but was left with 4 to contend with. Diving and running around the perimeter, watching for the laser and AOE attack while shooting the warriors with poison arrows. Just took some time, but every time I tried to take them on in a sword fight, they would trap me then I would get attacked by all of them and couldn’t dodge the AOE. Keep your distance.

Medusa changes her attack pattern after the final warrior wave, with two additional fast jumps before her AOE attack and then some back to back AOE. Again, keep moving and wait for your opening. I wasted a number of strikes attacking into thin air for the final bit.

WiccheI beat her on the third try using only stun arrows. They do more damage to her than anything else i tried.

Ragnar2008I'm level 60 and having problems with this. If I bag it and go back to an earlier save, and let my guy get to level 80, will it be easy?

SPOOKYVILLEWhat a fucking bitch she is!

V3ntilatorMedusa is not a hard boss, because she do the same 3 steps over and over again.
When laser is on, just stand behind a pillar and shoot her.
Use poison arrows to so it's easier to see where she is at all times.
The only problem is all her health, so i probably used over 20 minutes to kill with bow and arrows. Dodge and shoot her all the time when she is not using laser until she is dead.
Also remember to have healing perk enabled at 3/3.
This way, this boss is just a walk in the park.

Mrs x TomahawkI did it at level 48 it’s pretty easy if u use the tips listed below

KEEP MOVING. Never ever stand still just keep walking in circles behind the pillars. Sometimes press X to dodge if u feel like it.

Keep shooting arrows at her, make sure u have enabled automatic arrows so u don’t have to worry about running out of arrows.

Use RT + RB while shooting at her. Watch out she can teleport and u will miss, best to do this when she is using her eyes to make u into stone so u won’t miss. Always keep some adrenaline to heal yourself if necessary.

Good luck killing her guys !!
