Tomb of Sargeras - The Desolate Host Boss Preview

Recommended Posts

The Desolate Host is the fifth encounter in the Tomb of Sargeras raid starring Soul Queen Dejahna and the Engine of Souls. The boss drops Tier 20 cloaks.

The Desolate Host

Once, this was a sacred burial site for the Night Elves, but the Legion has twisted these grounds with the Engine of Souls. This foul machine draws upon the energy of the dead, twisting them into abominations. Due to this corruption, these tormented spirits have become monstrosities, looking to feed on any who descend into the tomb's depths.

Overview

The Engine of Souls exists within the corporeal realm while the corrupted soul of High Priestess Dejahna controls the Spirit Realm. Both share health and call upon the spirits and the undead to serve the Legion.

At 30% health remaining, the Engine of Souls lurches forward and ejects The Desolate Host, a fearsome amalgamation of the corrupted dead.

      Blizzard has updated the character creation screen, making newly-created characters wear fancier, better-looking armor, to give players an idea about how their class would look wearing an armor set.
      The Demon Hunter, Druid, and Shaman set remains unchanged (thanks @Dejo93), so we're listing the remaining classes that have received new armor sets for preview. Note that the sets are there just for preview and they're not actual starter sets!
      Death Knight

      Hunter

      Mage

      Monk

      Paladin

      Priest

      Rogue

      Ardenweald Zone Preview (Screenshots) Fire Mage Class Changes: June 3rd Ardenweald and Night Fae Covenant (Official Preview) Oribos Portal Added to Portal Rooms in Main Cities Torghast Development Notes: June 3rd
    • By Starym
      We have one of the biggest Torghast updates since Alpha launched today, as all classes are now available and have anima powers, Torments have been revamped to be additional challenges instead of a timer, and a lot more Anima power tweaks, bug fixes etc.
      June 3 (source)
      All classes now have Anima Powers and can venture into Torghast.
      Many classes have received new Anima Powers that affect their Covenant Class abilities.
      Torment Update!
      Torments no longer scale with time.
      Torments are now additional challenges based on the floor types you have encountered on this run.
      Developers’ notes: We’ve heard your feedback that Torments were adding too much time pressure. The Jailer may still torment you on higher levels of Torghast, but Torments will not scale with time. Breath of Coldheart  now increases the health of enemy monsters by a flat percentage based on the number of Coldheart Interstitia floors climbed.
      Mort'regar's Echoes now increase the Magic damage enemy monsters inflict by a flat percentage based on the number of Mort’regar floors climbed.
      Might of the Upper Reaches now increases the Physical damage enemy monsters inflict by a flat percentage based on the number of Upper Reaches floors climbed.
      Developers’ notes: The changes above were inspired by feedback that Torments that reduce your power feel worse than torments that affect your enemies. As always, we will continue to tune and keep a close eye on difficulty. Rewards and Access
      Legendary materials now only drop from cell block runs, not from the Twisting Corridors.
      Developers’ notes: Looting a Resonating Chest may generate a message that says that you have received “bonus materials” for a “timely completion”. This is an artifact from a previous design that has since been removed, and can be ignored. Chests in the Twisting Corridors now drop Twisted Dust , which will be used for cosmetic rewards.
      Portals to the six cell blocks (not the Twisting Corridors) now take you to fully-randomized 6-block runs, rather than the pre-set quest run. This includes a Wayfinder on floor 1 that allows you to choose your difficulty.
      Two of Torghast’s six cell blocks are open per week. For testing purposes, the available blocks will change daily. They will change weekly in the final version of the game.
      Access to the Twisting Corridors will always be available in addition to the two theme blocks.
      Developers’ notes: Players who seek Legendary materials alone can do so in Torghast’s cell blocks, and can earn more materials by climbing higher. Players who are looking for cosmetics, or who simply want to play without pressure, can do so in the Twisting Corridors. More Notes
      This build includes many bug fixes. Thank you very much for your bug reports! Remember: Alpha is alpha. Things will still change, especially rewards, tuning, and Torghast’s interaction with outside systems. We really appreciate all of your testing and feedback. Many huge Torghast changes have arrived today.

      Blizzard today outlined changes coming to Fire Mages in the near future on Shadowlands Alpha to give players more agency over spreading Ignite.
      The devs want to give Fire Mages more agency over spreading Ignite. At first, they wanted to make Fire Blast spread it, but the spell is used for Hot Streak, so they will make Phoenix's Flames baseline for Fire Mages, giving players more choice over when to spread Ignite. A replacement talent for Phoenix's Flames will be added in future builds.
      (Source)
      We want to make Ignite spread something the player has agency over, and first experimented with the past system of making Fire Blast spread it. However, because of the importance of using Fire Blast for Hot Streak very frequently, we’ve seen feedback that this creates a lot of tension and still makes it difficult to control when you and don’t want Ignite to spread.
      In the next alpha build, we’re going to try letting Phoenix's Flames fill this role, as a baseline spell for Fire Mages. This gives Phoenix's Flames a unique function and identity as a core spell, as well as allowing for more choice over when to spread Ignite. If we continue with the change, we’ll look into a new talent to replace Phoenix's Flames in upcoming builds.
