If the content becomes ‘relevant’ again then I will expand the boss guides as needed and add more detail.

Boss 1 - Kaler Andrenos

  • Stay out the bad circle on the floor – the bad will deal damage and knock players up into the air, which may even throw you off the cliff. The circle is where the ice pillar will spawn.
  • Abyssal Mealstrom – The boss will randomly target a player and apply a debuff that will pull nearby players to that player and deal damage – Low level groups should spread out.
  • Icy Explosion – The boss will drop an ice pillar in the fight area – He will then cast ****** and all players will need to Line of Sight the boss – Low level groups can tank the boss in the tunnel entrance and then use the nearby rocks to LoS, this is much easier!

Boss 2 - Icetalon - Expert Mode

Phase 1

  • Touch of Storms – Channeled cast where Landrac will lift a random player skywards and then knock them back – All players can stand with their backs against the cliff at /setwaypoint 1096 1147
  • Add Summon – Landrac wil summon 3 bird adds – Kill them with Aoe/Cleave

Phase 2

  • Icetalon will be summoned when Landrac reaches 20% – You can continue to DPS and hopefully kill Landrac before Icetalon reaches the platform and needs to be tanked.
  • Ripping Talons – Icetalon will randomly charge a player and place a damaging DOT on them, this can be cleansed off.
  • Grievous Wound – Icetalon places a bleed on the tank that only stops when the tank reaches 100% health, be sure to have a strong healer!
  • Icetalon will continue with the knock back from the first phase.

The loot from the boss will be in a chest in the middle of the platform, don’t forget to grab it!

Boss 3 - Majolic the Bloodwalker

DPS the boss to 50% health and then he will transform into his true form, while he is transforming you will need to move away as there will be an AoE around him.

  • Blood Contagion – A dot placed on players, cleanse it ASAP
  • Blood Crystal – A random player will be encased in a crystal, DPS should target the crystal and break it ASAP, especially if your healer is in there! – Low level groups may want to use 2 healers on this fight for this reason.

Boss 4 - Renthar - Expert Mode

Be sure the whole group moves into the right side of the cave before you pull, or you will end up locking players out.

  • Cave In – Ground AoE – Quickly move out of it.
  • Charge – Ranthar will charge at the player who is furthest away from him and deal a lot of damage. The best way to mitigate this is to tank him on the left side and have a specific player stand to the far right to absorb this charge. Low level groups may need their furthest player to change to tank or heals so they stay alive. The rest of the group stands in the middle of the room, spread out if possible to reduce the threat of the AoE.

Boss 5 - Calyx the Ancient

When you approach Calyx there will be a few minutes of roleplay before you can actually get down to the killing. Many groups will go to Calyx before boss 4 and activate the roleplay, then go back and kill boss 4 so the roleplay is over and done when they get back to Calyx.

  • The tank should position Calyx in the centre of the room.
  • The rest of the group can shimmy into the small alcove at /setwaypoint 901 1119
  • Using this setup will get you a quick kill (as long as you have good heals) but will not award you the cheevos, for that you will need to play properly!

 

  • Tank moves Calyx to the middle of the room, the rest of the group should spread out around Calyx, it is much easier to be ranged in this fight!
  • 3 lasers will beam out from Calyx at 12 o clock, 4 o clock and 8 o clock – The lasers will spin in an anti-clockwise direction – The raid needs to move constantly will the lasers to avoid being hit.
  • Ground AoE – Calyx will randomly place a ground AoE under a player, that player will need to move out to avoid damage, after a few ticks the AoE will then freeze anyone caught inside it, this can easily kill a player when the laser beam then hits them cos they can’t move!
  • Frozen Wrath – A casted ability, when finished it will reduced everyone’s health to 20% – Get the tank back up first and then everyone else.
  • Jagged Ice Shield – Calyx places a shield on himself that will reflect damage – This can be purged.
