Brawler's Guild: Leona Earthwind (Special Challengers) (WoD 6.0.3)

27 comments

Leona Earthwind is a Special Challenger of the Brawler's Guild. The fight against her will require you to quickly dispose of adds she spawns. Classes with weak AoE abilities are at a clear disadvantage here. Before we delve further into the explanations, we advise you to first watch this very short video, which shows how the fight with Leona Earthwind goes.

1. Abilities and Strategy↑top

Leona Earthwind has three abilities.

  • Wrath Icon Wrath deals between 50k and 60k Nature damage.
  • Solar Beam Icon Solar Beam summons a beam of light at your location. If you cast a spell while standing in this beam, you will be silenced for a few seconds.
  • Earthliving Seed Icon Earthliving Seed summons 3 Earthliving Sprouts. These adds chase you and deal 40k damage per hit with their melee attack.

To defeat Leona, you need to interrupt Wrath Icon Wrath as often as possible. Whenever you see a Solar Beam spawning at your location, you need to stop casting and move away from it. Most melee classes can safely ignore the Solar Beam.

The tricky part of the fight is to deal with the adds (the Earthliving Sprouts).

  • Some classes can automatically, or with very little trouble, spread the damage they do to Leona onto the adds. For these classes, the fight will be very easy.
  • Some classes can easily slow, root, stun, or fear the adds. So they can kill Leona while keeping the adds under control.
  • Other classes are missing the proper tools and will need to burn Leona down, all the while trying to survive the damage.

2. Generic Advice↑top

  • Do not panic. It does not matter if you mess up your rotation, but you need to stick to the strategy.
  • If you are in for a long Brawler's Guild session, you may want to use a flask.
  • Prepot! Use a Potion of Brawler's Might Icon Potion of Brawler's Might, a Potion of Brawler's Cunning Icon Potion of Brawler's Cunning, or a Potion of Brawler's Deftness Icon Potion of Brawler's Deftness right before Leona Earthwind appears, depending on what your main statistic is.
  • When the 60-second cooldown on your potion is over, you can use the same potion again or you can use a Brawler's Healing Potion Icon Brawler's Healing Potion if you need healing.
  • Group up with other players so that you benefit from each other's buffs.
