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

Boss 1 - Smouldaron

Pretty much a tank and spank while staying out of the red.

Smouldaron

Boss 2 - Cyclorax

Tank Cyclorax where he stands.
Every so often he will cast a spell called ‘Cyclonic Destruction’ the group will need to move away from the AOE damage around the boss til the cast is over.
Suppresing Gale will stun a random player, this is cleansable by the healer or using break free.

Expert only: Laser beams (Galvanic Arc) will travel across the room, there are gaps in them, be sure to move so you pass between the gaps.

Boss 3 - Ryka Dharvos

Two laser beams are fired at the floor and they will travel around the room, stay out of the small aoe circle they create.
There will also be green and red aoe spawning on players, move out of these and stay out!

Boss will cast ‘Whirling Bolt’ on a random player, this will leave a ticking dot that will deal a lot of damage to a low level player, the healer needs to heal them until the dot disappears.

The boss will summon bird adds, the tank needs to pick these up quickly and the DPS can cleave or aoe them down.

Players will be randomly snared, this is cleansable by the healer or using break free.

In Normal mode, the last boss, Caelia the Stormtouched, will be stood in the next location.

Boss 4 - Gronik - Expert Mode

Tank Gronik where he stands, the Harpies cannot be tanked and must be killed by the DPS asap, one at a time. The two Harpies will apply a stacking buff to Gronik, so the quicker they die the better. Gronik will also gain a stacking shield (reflecting torrent), this can be purged off. The shield only reflects magical spells.
Players will gain a debuff that creates a blue aoe around them, anyone inside the aoe will be damaged, so move away.

Gronik

In normal mode, the dungeon ends here.

In expert mode:
You now need to jump across the lava river and make your way into the cave.
Use a mount to jump further and try not to land in the lava!

Boss 5 - Jultharin - Expert Mode

This fight is a pure DPS race. When you pull a beam of lightning will start to move from the Southern edge of the platform towards the North. A low level group will need to hold Jultharin as close to the Northern edge as possible, to give themselves enough time to kill Jultharin before the beam reaches them.

Boss 6 - Caelia the Stormtouched

Tank Caelia in the centre of the room, DPS/heals should spread out around her.

Phase 1
Caelia will place a random debuff on players, this can be cleansed off.

Phase 2
Caelia will become immune and summon a bunch of wisp adds, these need to be aoe’d down as quickly as possible. Stack up on the boss to bring them all to the middle quickly. If the wisps are not killed fast enough then they will change into bombs that will explode!

Phase 3
When the last wisp dies, Caelia will shoot a laser beam in a straight line and turn anti-clockwise, she will turn 1.5 times(ish). All players need to move in a circle around the boss avoiding the beam.

Phase 4
After the beam disappears Caelia will cast ‘Touch of Storms’, this spell will stun all players and lift them up and throw them back. Players need to ensure they have their backs against a wall at the end of phase 3 or risk being knocked into the lava! A good spot to stand is right in front of the large doorway.

These phases will repeat in order until the boss is dead.
