  • Bosses and Mechanics
    • Akash gra-Mal
      • The boss uses a heavy attack that simply needs to be blocked by the tank.
      • Uses a conal AoE attack in front of him. If the tank faces the boss away from the group, they won’t have to worry about this and the tank will just need to block it.
      • Uses an AoE attack with him at the center, the radius of which is very short. Simply don’t stand in this to avoid being hit.
    • Chokethorn
      • The boss uses a pull attack that pulls party members towards it.
      • The boss has a wide expanding AoE attack with it being at the center.  Make sure to get out of this AoE to avoid taking unnecessary damage.
      • Stranglers will be spawned around the room that will heal the boss. If your dps are slow, then they are going to need to kill these to prevent the bosses HP from going up. If you’re dps are fast enough, these can be ignored since you will be out damaging their healing.
    • Leafseether
      • The boss uses a conal AoE attack, so the tank just needs to simply face the boss away from the group.
    • Nenesh gro-Mal
      • The boss has a lot of adds surrounding it. You can either group them up with the boss and AoE down everything if your group has the damage for it, but if your group does not take care of the adds first.
      • The boss’s only main mechanic is that it has a heavy attack that should be blocked by the tank.
    • Canonreeve Oraneth
      • The boss has a poison AoE that it will place around the room.  If you stand in it, you will take damage and be stunned.  After a couple seconds, 4 skeletons spawn from the AoE; you’re going to want to take these down.
      • The boss has a wide expanding AoE attack with it being at the center.  Make sure to get out of this AoE to avoid taking unnecessary damage.
      • The boss also uses a heavy attack that shoots an orb at a party member and knocks them down; block or dodge this if possible.
