Boss 2 - Caor Ashstone

Caor Ashstone has three main abilities

  • Ashstone’s Curse (cast on a random player) – Low damage and stuns the player effected.
  • Aura of Decay – Reduces your damage and increases your damage taken.
  • Jagged Wounds (cast on the tank) – A DoT that will stack up and get harder to heal through until eventually killing the tank.

Boss 3 - The Three Kings

There are 3 statues on the platform, a King will spawn one at a time from each statue, first Humbart the Bold, then Derribec the Magus and finally Laric the Ascendant. When you have killed them individually, they will then all spawn at the same time and you need to kill all 3 together.

  • Humbart has a frontal cleave called Deathly Whirlwind and a Knockback ability. He can be fought with the tank’s back against his statue.
  • Derribec casts Rend Life which is a single target damaging ability.
  • Laric has a heal spell called Unholy Healing which should be interrupted if possible.

When all 3 bosses spawn together, the easiest kill order for a low level group is Laric, Derribec and then Humbart.

Trash

Between The Three Kings and Bonelord Fetlorn is a long tunnel with a lot of trash. Many groups come up with inventive ways to avoid this trash, often involving summons or group resurrects, be sure to discuss your groups plan and react acordingly.

Upon reaching Eliam’s Tomb you will notice the door to the next boss is locked. You need to activate all the orb lights in the room to open the door, as an added bonus, the lights will damage the Shadowed Fiends in the room, helping you kill them faster!

The Door is Locked!
Stand on each light
The torches above the door will mark your progress

Boss 4 - Bonelord Fetlorn - Expert Mode

Bonelord Fetlorn has a couple of main abilities

  • Bone Theft – Will spawn a ‘Stolen Skeleton’ mob for every player in line of sight of the boss, will also snare the players and make them take more damage.
  • Boiling Marrow – Stuns and causes damage.

Doing this boss at low level will involve line of sighting the boss when he casts these abilities, the tank will LoS behind the pillar in the small room, the group will LoS by standing at the doorway and then sidestepping behind the wall when he casts.

Boss 5 - Ragnoth the Despoiler

Ragnoth the Despoiler has one main ability called Flames of Ragnoth, this is huge damage to low level players. Everyone should run to the Light of Eliam, an NPC which spawns a protective circle of light around him, this light circle will spawn just before the Flames of Ragnoth is cast, the circle will spawn randomly in one of 4 spots, so be sure to watch for it.
Just before the Flames of Ragnoth is cast, the boss with stun/slow a random player, this can be cleansed off to allow the player to reach the circle safely.

Ragnoth also has a frontal cleave so the tank will need to tank him facing away from the group, this will need careful manoeuvring if the tank is too weak to survive the Flame of Ragnoth cast and also needs to use the circle of light.

Boss 6 - Totek the Ancient - Expert Mode

Totek the Ancient will do a knockback every so often so you will want to tank him up against a rock/wall.

He will become furious, casting Shattering Roar, Ancient Fury and Devastation.
Get out of the big yellow circle around him and LoS if possible so that Devastation doesn’t hit you (this can still hurt even a high level character)

After you kill the Three Kings, the circle on the floor will turn into a Spectral Trap.

Around the room, lots of mobs will have spawned, some of these will be Spectral Screamers.
Use the Spectral Bane ability to capture the Spectral Screamers and have them chained to you, drag them into the Trap to capture them.

Iron Tomb

Be Gentle

Dont kill the ‘defender’ adds that spawn from the Hives. You may need to ensure your group uses no AOE spells, stay single target on the Broodmother

Minimal Decay

Aura of Decay will stack up the longer you are in line of sight of the boss, if you get to 3 stacks then go out of line of sight from the boss til your stacks are gone. This one can be difficult to manage with a low level group. Most groups will have enough DPS to hard burn the boss before anyone reaches 3 stacks.

We All Fall Down

When the 3 Kings spawn together, kill all 3 of them within 10 seconds of each other
Low level groups will need to carefully manage their DPS and bring each boss to 5% and then kill them all together quickly

We Three Kings

Kill the 3 Kings in different orders, saving the one you still need for last.

Endless Bones

When the 3 Kings spawn together kill Humbart and Derribec and leave only Laric alive. Hold your DPS! a bunch of adds will start to join the party, keep killing everything until you have killed 40 of the Helots (this will take a couple of minutes) they tend to spawn 5 at a time, kill a few extras just in case!

Fixing Mistakes

Each time the boss casts ‘Bone Theft’ a Stolen Skeleton will spawn on any player that is within line of sight.

For a solo player, you will need to body agro the boss (stand near him to pull but don’t attack) and then wait over 6 minutes for a total of 11 skeletons to spawn, be ready with a big aoe spell so you can kill all 11 of them at once and then kill the boss.

Adding more players will spawn more skeletons on each cast, shortening the time you need to wait to reach 11.

Out of Sight

Ensure you go out of line of sight from the boss when he casts Bone Theft

Eliam Be Praised

Ensure everyone gets in the circle of light during the Flame of Ragnoth
Just before the Flame of Ragnoth is cast, the boss with stun/slow a random player, this can be cleansed off to allow the player to reach the circle safely.

Big Heals!

Stand out of the circle during the Flames of Ragnoth.
Low level players will need a dedicated healer to ensure they survive!
This cheevo will pop as soon as the Flame of Ragnoth cast is finished, as long as the player survives! So the next time the Flame of Ragnoth is cast, a different player can stand out and be healed, keep taking turns and the whole group can get the cheevo in one run.

Keep Your Enemies Closer

The easiest way is to kill the boss before he casts it! Otherwise, as soon as the Ancient Fury ability is finished, ensure your group has the boss out of line of sight and he shouldn’t cast it, this way is not always completely reliable.
