Overview of Bosses in Halls of Reflection

Here we will give you a full rundown of what you can expect from each of the bosses found here on both Normal and Heroic difficulties as well as the items they drop.




Mechanics and Strategy

This fight has multiple different debuffs that drastically change the fight. If possible, remove Quivering Strike IconQuivering Strike from the tank whenever you can. Impending Despair IconImpending Despair will stun the target after 6 seconds if the debuff is not dispelled. Falric will periodically fear all players with Defiling Horror IconDefiling Horror, also dealing high Shadow damage-over-time. Healers should try to keep the group full health at all times to prevent anyone dying while they are feared, and be ready to top the party back up after this fear finishes.

Finally, Hopelessness IconHopelessness will apply a stacking debuff to the entire party, reducing damage and healing done. Falric will cast this at 66%, 33%, and 10% health, making the fight more and more difficult the further in you get. Party members, especially tanks, should be ready with defensive cooldowns the lower health that Falric gets to reduce their damage taken as healers will be doing significantly less healing output.

Escape from Arthas


Mechanics and Strategy

This fight involves escaping from The Lich King himself! He will slowly march towards you, covering the area surrounding him in a deadly aura of Frost that kills anyone caught inside of it. The party must constantly move forward to avoid the deadly Frost aura while beating back multiple waves of enemies as they attempt to slow you down.

The Lich King will constantly construct walls of ice to prevent the players from moving forward. After doing this he will spawn multiple waves of the undead to attack the players. Keep adds faced away from the group and quickly kill them before they overwhelm the party. Risen Witch Doctors should be prioritized whenever alive as they deal high AoE damage. Lumbering Abominations are the second priority and should be stunned and faced away from the group at all times as they have multiple frontal-facing attacks.
