Tomb of Sargeras - Kil'jaeden Boss Preview

Recommended Posts

J0Gxqjz.jpg

Our final preview covers the Deceiver himself! Kil'jaeden is back and this time, he has legs, so we can safely assume that things will get pretty serious!

Kil'jaeden

Since striking the bargain that chased the draenei into the stars, Kil'jaeden believed the Legion could not be stopped. Yet, none of his deceptions have prevented you from reaching this critical moment. Infuriated that Sargeras' promise of victory has never come to pass, the demon lord prepares to face you himself, for a final battle that will shape Azeroth's destiny forever.

Overview

Players engage Kil'jaeden on his command ship, engaging both him and the Shadow Reflections of their comrades' souls that he turns to his will.

At 80% health, Kil'jaeden takes to the sky, launching a punishing barrage of attacks on players, after which he re-engages the players with greater power.

At 40% health, Kil'jaeden wraps the platform in darkness, limiting players' vision to a short range around them, and summons several Shadowsouls. Players must find Illidan in the darkness, who grants the players his sight, and use it to defeat the Shadowsouls and dispel the darkness.

Once players have escaped the darkness, Kil'jaeden arrives at Argus and unleashes his ultimate attack - Darkness of a Thousand Souls. Players must use the rifts that he opens to absorb the missiles from Darkness of a Thousand Souls to avoid being killed by them.

  • Demonic ObeliskDemonic Obelisk - Creates Demonic Obelisks positioned around the platform which detonate in a cross of fel energy after a short time, inflicting 2,500,000 Fire damage to all affected players and knocking them back.

Also, the missiles from Darkness of a Thousand Souls will be sucked into the rift rather than hitting the targeted player if that player is standing close enough to the rift to be affected by Gravity Squeeze. Finally, rifts will also pull the pools of flame created by Flaming Orbs to them. When they reach the edge of the platform near the rift, the rift will suck in the flames, reducing the size of the flame patch over time.
    • Gravity SqueezeGravity Squeeze - Inflicts 600,000 Shadow damage every 1 sec. The amount inflicted increases the longer the player remains affected by Gravity Squeeze. The missiles from Darkness of a Thousand Souls will be sucked into the rift rather than hitting them if players are standing close enough to the rift to be affected by Gravity Squeeze.

    • Flaming DetonationFlaming Detonation - Inflicts 2,000,000 damage to all players within 10 yards, and creates a pool of fire that afflicts any players who enter with Burning. The size of the pool of fire created is reduced based on the length of time it takes the Flaming Orb to trigger a Flaming Detonation.
  • Bursting DreadflameBursting Dreadflame - Inflicts 2,500,000 Fire damage to the targeted player and all other players within 15 yards.
  • Focused DreadflameFocused Dreadflame - Inflicts 8,000,000 Fire damage to all players in a line in the direction of the targeted player, divided by the number of players hit.

Should be interesting.  I don't think the coup de grace will be delivered here - either we chase him back to Argus to finish it, or N'zoth and Jaina show up and take him out.

      This is one of those "obviously not what we hope it is, but maaaybe?" things as Henry Cavill, who was part of many discussions about who should play Arthas last year, just posted an interesting image to his Instagram, as spotted by Warchief_Hammerhands.
      This is 99.99% Witcher-related, and the caption is just a tease (whether it's actually aimed at the Arthas hype or not), but we have seen the actor actually talk about the role of the Lich King previously. In several Instagram replies to one of the many fan photoshops of himself as Arthas, Cavill did seem to show some solid interest in the role, and it all started with an emoji response to this post:
      And here's the complex response, with Blizzard getting tagged:

      He then engaged in some fan interaction, starting with a nod at the previous rumors of him being the next Bond:
           
      And great response to a fair warning related to Cavill's missing his Man of Steel casting call because he was playing WoW:
       
        

      Many have actually commented that Cavill might be a bit too old for Arthas at this point, but considering the events on 9.1 and where the story might be going, who's to say an older, post-Maw Arthas isn't in the cards? It seems like a perfect stunt commercial type thing to tease a potentially bigger project like a TV series or even movie. After all, Metzen himself approves of Cavill in the role!
      But, getting back down to earth, this seems much more Witcher-related, with Season 2 of the show  still being shot, as Covid slowed things down. The Instagram post is probably just a tease that they're still shooting the show (possibly the finale, as the script seems to be relevant) and we're just getting too excited. But why shouldn't we get excited? A Warcaft TV show is just too good of a fit, even an animated one, so any movement we can stir up there can only be positive!

      We're sure you're all Cavilled-out at this point, but there's another development in the fan/Chris Metzen/Christie Golden casting of Superman as Arthas, as the man (of steel) himself has replied to a recent photoshop of him as the Lich King over on Instagram. We start off with two cute/amazing fan interactions, as someone in the thread asked him what his WoW name was and the reply was pure gold:
           
      The second was a fair warning related to Cavill's missing his Man of Steel casting call because he was playing WoW:
        
      And finally there's the big one, even thought it's small, as Cavill tagged Blizzard with a thinking emoji:

      And while usually with social media posts like this you'd assume they were made by some PR intern or similar, considering Cavill's love of WoW and the specificity of some of the replies, we can be pretty sure he was the one responding. Here's the full Instagram post:
      And just in case you missed it the first time, here's that story of Cavill missing the call that he got the Superman part:

      The Great Vault raid loot requirements have finally changed on the 9.0.5 PTR in this week's Build 37705.
      As we reported last week, Blizzard planned on changing the raid loot requirements for the weekly chest from 3/7/10 bosses down to 3/6/9 bosses, but Blizzard did not implement the change until this week's Build arrived on the 9.0.5 PTR.
      Here's the updated Great Vault tab with the new requirements.

    • By Stan
      We've got some great news for you if you don't do Mythic Keystone Dungeons. In Patch 9.0.5, you can upgrade base Mythic Dungeon gear with Valor Points up to Item Level 200.
      In this week's (third) 9.0.5 PTR build, we noticed Mythic gear has 12 ranks in the Dungeon Journal, which means it is upgradable with Valor from Item Level 183 to 200.
