Instance Overview

Walkthrough and Tactics

< Basic walk-through commentary>

  • Tier 1
  • Tier 2
  • Tier 3


The first boss has only 3 skills that they can rotate very often.

  • "Fall before us"

Skill: Striking Blows

  • "Witness our might"

Skill: Sweeping Limbs

  • "Our corruption runs deep"

Skill: Corrupted Pool

The key is to always watch out for the boss to use his 'Sweeping Limbs' skill and stay at least 20 meters away from them or you will get blown to pieces. Also, keep in mind that once his Morale falls down to around 25%, the entire room will be filled with poison puddles. 'Striking blows' is a single target version of 'Sweeping Limbs' so whomever the boss targets with it has to move away 20 meters from them.

It is probably a good idea to keep the area clean of poison puddles. So, whenever the boss throws 'Corrupted Pool' on the team, dump the puddle at the sides of the area, where you are not going to run through them. Ultimately, you prepare for the last phase by keeping the center of the room completely free from poison puddles. Once the fight progresses towards the end, the center will be filled with puddles, so a good way to not kill yourselves is to avoid stacking more poison in it.
