Holy Crap! I was having a pretty difficult time on this Anzu look-alike but after a number of attempts here and there, I was in the mood to give him a solid attempt today.
Yikkan Izu – My main issues were missing/getting caught in his screech or being overrun by birds. Then when I managed to get him to 23%, 8% and then 2% (with a few dodgy attempts in between), I knew it was close but I was getting quite antsy because I missed his screech a couple of times. If I wasn’t bubbled, I didn’t fare so well but it also depended on how many birds were up at the time. To be sure I caught his first screech on the next attempt, I slowed my rotation down just waiting for his cast.
This boss can be feared and rooted so I used those to keep at range while silencing his first Disorienting Shriek. Just make sure you don’t get overrun by birds as this can happen very quickly if you’re not careful. Killing more than five will enrage him but he is still killable if you are on the ball.
Akama – This was an easy fight for a shadow priest. Roots and fears work like a charm so not much else to say for this one as I one-shot him.
Smash Hoofstomp – This was another one-shot fight, even with two gnomes sitting on his shoulders. I only killed one but noticed a considerable damage increase to Smash so to make the fight faster, I should have killed the second goblin too. Fear and roots also work.
Unguloxx – I didn’t think there was much to this boss until I realised he could hit you for about 30-60K in melee. Again just keep him at range with root and fear and you’ll have him in the bag.
Now on to rank 7… Eek!
