Raid Bosses

Castle Nathria

Shriekwing

Single Target
15
25
30
35
40
45
50

Notes: Good use of mobility through Heroic Leap and Intervene can help with boss uptime before needing to get out of line of sight for the Earsplitting Shriek cast.

Huntsman Altimor

Cleave
15
25
30
35
40
45
50

Notes: Make full use of Sweeping Strikes and Condemn when new Gargon’s spawn throughout the fight.

Make good use of Heroic Leap when affected by Petrifying Howl to maintain good uptime on the boss before the debuff expires and drops a pool.

Sun King's Salvation

AoE
15
25
30
35
40
45
50

Notes: High AoE fight with plenty of spawning adds. Try and make good use of Sweeping Strikes and Condemn on high priority targets like Rockbound Vanquishers and Bleakwing Assassins.

Artificer Xy'mox

Single Target
15
25
30
35
40
45
50

Notes: Hold Heroic Leap for when you are afflicted with Dimensional Tear as you may need to drop the Wormhole some distance away from the boss.

You can help clear Stasis Traps on the ground by Bladestorming through them. They will trigger but not stun or damage you.

Hungering Destroyer

Single Target
15
25
30
35
40
45
50

Notes: Spell Reflection is outstanding on this fight and can be used to completely negate the damage of a few mechanics. This can immune multiple Expunges at once so you can stand inside someone else's circle as long as your own doesn’t overlap with another player.

Lady Inerva Darkvein

Single Target / Cleave
15
25
30
35
40
45
50

Notes: Make good use of Sweeping Strikes and Condemn for when adds spawn.

The Council of Blood

Single Target
15
25
30
35
40
45
50

Notes: While this is a Council fight and 3 targets are present from the start, any damage to a target you aren’t meant to kill is wasted as the remaining bosses heal when one is killed.

Sludgefist

Single Target
15
25
30
35
40
45
50

Notes: Sludgefist takes more damage when he charges into a pillar for 12 seconds. Try and save Colossus Smash at least for this phase if possible to put out as much damage as possible.

Stone Legion Generals

Cleave
15
25
30
35
40
45
50

Notes: Make good use of Condemn on freshly spawned adds of high priority. Sweeping Strikes can potentially keep boss damage high but can be awkward with a high number of mobs around the boss, particularly in P1.

Try and save Heroic Leap to get out of the raid when targeted by Wicked Blade.

Use Sweeping Strikes as much as possible throughout the fight.

Sire Denathrius

Cleave
15
25
30
35
40
45
50

Notes: Another fight with many spawning adds. Try and hold Warbreaker and Bladestorm for add spawn timings, particularly in P1.

Denathrius’ Sword, Remornia, spawns to fight alongside Denathrius at the start of P2. Since it spawns at full HP, this becomes a perfect Sweeping Strikes + Condemn target.
