Instance Overview

Walk-through and Tactics

< Basic walk-through commentary>

  • Tier 1

Azbauz and Maurgrush - Both of them have a bleed; to avoid stacking bleeds Tank holds aggro on Az and Maug whilst kiting Maug to stop him applying his bleed. Interrupt Az's Induction above 50% through the cast. The all the DPS kill Azbauz until he is dead; Then DPS Maug while the Tank is still kiting him. Always have Maurgrush facing away from the DPS and Healer to prevent them being hit by the Frontal AOE.

Shatarkha - This boss has two Crowd Control attacks - ICED where he freezes one person and a Frost AOE Cone where he will ice-blast one person (and anyone close to that person). He will pick one non-tanking-person at random for each attack, sometimes the same person twice. To avoid getting wiped DPS and Healers stand far apart in the 180 degree arc behind Shatarkha. The duration of the ICE is multiplied by the amount of people his second Frost AOE hits. So if it hits only one person you can the Ignore the ICE as it will wear off after the Frost AOE Cone. If everyone is standing far from each other only one person gets hit by the Frost Cone.

Groz and Ulk - Tank with back to the fence. DPS and Healers stand behind. Keep healing cooldowns for after his special attacks. Randomly he will throw a boulder at a non-tank person - this has AOE splash damage so spread out.
