The Herald of the Stars is a unique Boss creature located in the Port Valbury Outskirts. It guards the gates to the "roguelike" section of Port Valbury and must be defeated before they can be opened.

The boss fight is divided in two phases. Initially, the Herald is anchored to the ground, attacking the player and summoning Flesh Hulks. Once 50% of its health is depleted, the boss releases itself and starts flying over the battlefield.
