Legendary: Unity + Collective Anguish

Covenant /Soulbind: Venthyr /Nadjia

Notes: Play Unleashed Power because Chaos Nova is very powerful here. You can use it on the images while people are inside the realm to interrupt their cast, inside the realm on the Anduin’s Doubt, during phase 2 on Grim reflections, and during the intermission after a DK grip, so the smalies don’t jump back instantly. Use Metamorphosis on CD but delay it a bit for the 2nd intermission. You can use Netherwalk to immune Hopelessness in the last phase.

Legendary: Unity + Collective Anguish

Covenant /Soulbind: Venthyr /Nadjia

Notes: You can cancel the knockback of any abilities by just pressing glide. Use Metamorphosis on the pull, start of p2, on top of the adds in p3, and p4 with lust.

Sanctum of Domination

The Tarragrue

Single Target
15
25
30
35
40
45
50

Legendary: Burning Wound

Soulbind: Niya/Dreamweaver

Notes: The boss has a very big hitbox, so make sure to utilize your Mobility during Momentum. Use Metamorphosis on cooldown and try to play around your Anima Powers (stack with players, pick up damage orbs etc.)

Eye of the Jailer

Single Target / Cleave

Legendary: Burning Wound

Soulbind: Niya/Dreamweaver

Notes: Same as on Tarragrue, use the big hitbox to your advantage. You can also use Netherwalk and Soulshape to get through the big beam. Metamorphosis can be used on the first intermission for add damage and in the last phase or on cooldown from pull onwards for maximum boss damage.

The Nine

Single Target / 2 Target Cleave
15
25
30
35
40
45
50

Legendary: Burning Wound

Soulbind: Niya/Dreamweaver

Notes: Look out on boss timer to not cast your Essence Break or offensive cooldowns when the boss is about to spawn Annhylde’s Bright Aegis as you basically waste a caste of Essence Break due to damage reduction from the shield. Metamorphosis on cooldown and make sure to use your Death Sweep while more than 2 targets are attackable. Soulshape will be your primary movement ability for soaking and running out.

Remnant of Ner'zhul

Single Target / Cleave
15
25
30
35
40
45
50

Legendary: Burning Wound

Soulbind: Niya/Dreamweaver

Notes: If you are not affected by Malevolence you can just stay in the middle of the room most of the time. When Malevolence explodes and knocks everyone back, you can just double jump. Use Metamorphosis on cooldown and trigger First Strike from hitting the orbs.

Soulrender Dormazain

Soulbind: Korayn

Notes: Focus on boss damage. Metamorphosis is used on cooldown and you can use The Hunt combined with Unbound Chaos on add waves. Use Soulshape if you need to play Warmonger’s Shackles.

Painsmith Raznal

Single Target

30
35
40
45
50

Legendary: Burning Wound

Soulbind: Niya/Dreamweaver

Notes: If you feel confident, you can play the Momentum/Essence Break build here, but the movement needs to be precise. Soulshape can be used to get over the spikes that spawn, and you can also glide around the area on the side to ignore most of the line mechanics. Metamorphosis lines up perfectly to use it on pull and in the last phase combined with Bloodlust.

Guardian of the First Ones

Single Target
15
25
30
35
40
45
50

Legendary: Burning Wound

Soulbind: Niya/Dreamweaver

Notes: Another boss where your movement needs to be precise when playing Momentum/Essence Break. Watch out to not run into the Tanks during Sunder or Fel Rush into Disintegration. Metamorphosis should be used on cooldown to maximize your damage on the boss.

Fatescribe Roh-Kalo

Single Target / Heavy Cleave
15
25
30
35
40
45
50

Legendary: Burning Wound

Soulbind: Korayn

Notes: Make sure to utilize Korayn as a soulbind here with triggering First Strike on every possible enemy. Throw a glaive on an add, and get back to your main target. Your first Metamorphosis should be used on pull and then second should be delayed for the last phase since the boss isn't alive for more than 7 minutes and you don't get 3 usages of Metamorphosis anyway.

Kel'Thuzad

Single Target / Heavy Cleave
15
25
30
35
40

50

Legendary: Burning Wound

Soulbind: Korayn

Notes: Make sure to utilize Korayn as a soulbind here with triggering First Strike on every possible enemy. Throw a glaive on an add, and get back to your main target. Be aware of your Movement if you are in the Phylactery Phase as using Vengeful Retreat in there can get you very close to the edge of the platform. Another boss where you use Metamorphosis on pull and in the last phase when your group uses Bloodlust. Your damage kit consisting of The Hunt and Unbound Chaos will help will a lot on damage tank adds and Glacial Spikes.

Legendary: Burning Wound

Soulbind: Korayn

Notes: Make sure to utilize Korayn as a soulbind here with triggering First Strike on every possible enemy. Throw a glaive on an add, and get back to your main target. Be aware of your Movement in the bridge and last phase as using Vengeful Retreat or Fel Rush can get you very close to the edge of the platform. Use Metamorphosis on pull, on the first damage phase in Phase 2. The last usages are dependent. You can use one Metamorphosis on the first platform in Phase 3, get Fae Guardians by a Night Fae Priest in your group and use Metamorphosis on the very last platform. If you only get one Metamorphosis in phase 3, use it for the third pillar with Bloodlust.
