A level 70 player can easily one shot everything in this dungeon.
This guide is mainly designed to show you how to get the cheevos and do the quests.
If the content becomes ‘relevant’ again then I will expand the boss guides as needed and add more detail.

When you walk into the Dungeon you can go left or right and do the bosses that are up in any order. It doesn’t matter which order you do the bosses in, most groups will go to the right first. I have ordered the bosses below in the order they appear on the cheevo.

Boss 1 - Krasimir Barionov

Walk up to the boss platform to activate the fight.
Krasimir Barionov will summon 3 waves of enemies before becoming the boss that you need to kill. Allow your tank to fully agro each group of enemies before you start attacking!

Boss 2 - Matron Verosa

Start by pulling Matron Verosa, get her down to 80% health and she will go immune, Lesche will now be attackable.
Lesche has a nasty charge ability that really hurts, you can mitigate this by having the whole group stand in melee range.
When Lesche reaches 50% he will go immune and Gurze will be attackable.
Ensure you tank Gurze facing away from the group as he has a nasty frontal cleave.
When Gurze reaches 50%, Lesche will become active again, you will now be fighting Gurze and Lesche at the same time, the tank should hold them both together facing away from the group while the group stacks up right behind them both. It is best to continue focusing your fire on Gurze to kill him first as his frontal cleave can be lethal to your tank.
Once Gurze and Lesche are both dead, Matron Verosa will be active again and you can kill her.

A level 70 can kill all 3 bosses with one channelled/ground AoE.. much fun!

Boss 3 - Surin Skenobar

The group should spread out while the tank will tank her where she initially stands.
Surin Skenobar will teleport to random group members and drop a bomb at their location, the player will need to immediately move away from the bomb before it explodes.
Ensure you are not stood between Surin Skenobar and the tank as she will cast a ‘barrage skill’ towards the tank (or the player with the most agro) and anyone between Surin Skenobar and the target will find themselves dead.

Boss 4 - Sparkwing - Expert Mode

The Sparkwing boss is found flying around the South East area of the instance, he flies between the area when Surin Skenobar is and the bridge leading to Krasimir Barionov.
You can easily find him using a target macro – /target spark
Once you have him targetted, wait for him to fly low and use a range ability to pull him down, this is best down in the area where Surin Skenobar is, as he flies low here and you will have space for the kill.

Sparkwing is a simple tank and spank fight. He will cast a large AoE damage spell every so often called ‘Wrath of Sparkwing’, be sure your healer is ready for this.

Boss 5 - Tephra Lord Maficros - Expert Mode

In the middle of the instance is a death rift, go to it and wait for the first waves of trash to appear.

Kill all the things from stage 1 and 2 of the rift.
After stage 2, Tephra Lord Maficros will appear.

Kill Tephra Lord Maficros, this is a simple tank and spank fight with a stay out the bad element.

Boss 6 - Queen Vallnara

In the normal mode version of the Dungeon you just need to destroy the 3 pillars around the rift to activate the boss fight.

Queen Vallnara has two main abilites
— She will drop poison on the ground, which you need to move out of, the tank may need to kite her around to avoid this.
— She will impregnate random players, this will stun the player for a few seconds and then after 5 seconds they will ‘give birth’ to 2 adds (Congrats on the twins!).
Avoid the poison and ensure the tank quickly picks up the adds when they spawn.

A level 70 can simply group up all the mobs together and then use a strong AoE ability to kill them all at the same time.

Staggering Blitz is the charge that Lesche does. Ensure your group is always within melee range of Lesche while he is active, and move to melee range when he is just about to become active again too.

Gnarly Gnars

Allow Queen Vallnara to impregnate 6 people to spawn 6 adds, be very careful not to damage these adds, they dont have a lot of health! Keep Queen Vallnara alive until 6 adds are up and then single target her down, leaving the adds alive.

Corrupted Queen

To corrupt Queen Vallnara you need to keep the three pillars alive that are part of the rift encounter. After killing the adds from stage 1 and 2 of the Rift, Tephra Lord Maficros will spawn, along with another add called Earthguard Liberator that will start to destroy the pillars. Keep that add away from the pillars and kill him.
Ensure your DPS don’t hit the pillars them either!
You will know you have succeded when you see Queen Vallnara has the name ‘Corrupted Queen Vallnara’.
