Wrathion, the Black Emperor

We advise you to use the following talents against Wrathion, the Black Emperor.

3.1.

Tips

Single-target damage generally wins this fight. We recommend using a Cunning pet, like a Silithid (they move 30% faster than any other pet type), as you can use its Master's Call Icon Master's Call to rapidly move your pet around in Phase 2, between clusters of Crackling Shards. It will also help your pet connect to the boss more quickly when the phase ends and you have to get back to the boss as soon as possible.

For more information, please refer to our Wrathion, the Black Emperor guide.

4.

Maut

We advise you to use the following talents against Maut.

4.1.

Tips

We recommend using Survival of the Fittest Icon Survival of the Fittest in an offensive way, when the boss has his Reflection Shield up. Use it along with Spirit Mend Icon Spirit Mend when you use your cooldowns in this phase to survive. You should be liberal with your usage of Exhilaration Icon Exhilaration, Healthstones, and Healing Potions to survive.

For more information, please refer to our Maut guide.

5.

The Prophet Skitra

We advise you to use the following talents against The Prophet Skitra.

5.1.

Tips

A Silithid pet is helpful here, as it can move to distant images very quickly.

For more information, please refer to our The Prophet Skitra guide.

6.

The Hivemind

We advise you to use the following talents against The Hivemind.

6.1.

Tips

Darters are the absolute top priority of this fight. We recommend using Binding Shot Icon Binding Shot as soon as they are stacked. Intimidation Icon Intimidation and Freezing Trap Icon Freezing Trap can be used to interrupt casts as well.

This fight calls for a heavy "CDR" build, using cooldown-reducing Traits and Essences like Rapid Reload Icon Rapid Reload, Vision of Perfection Icon Vision of Perfection Minor, and the Whispering Eldritch Bow Icon Whispering Eldritch Bow Corruption Weapon.

For more information, please refer to our The Hivemind guide.

7.

Shad'har the Insatiable

We advise you to use the following talents against Shad'har the Insatiable.

7.1.

Tips

There are no special tips for this fight. It is mostly a single-target nuke with a few mechanics to handle and fire on the ground that you must not stand in.

For more information, please refer to our Shad'har the Insatiable guide.

8.

Dark Inquisitor Xanesh

We advise you to use the following talents against Dark Inquisitor Xanesh.

8.1.

Tips

Hunters are good for doing the "Football" Mechanic of this fight, as our pet can keep attacking the boss at full damage while you are doing it. If you are doing this mechanic, we recommend using Trailblazer Icon Trailblazer and Posthaste Icon Posthaste very strongly to aid in your mobility.

For more information, please refer to our Dark Inquisitor Xanesh guide.

9.

Vexiona

We advise you to use the following talents against Vexiona.

9.1.

Tips

While there's lots of AoE on this fight, we recommend Killer Cobra Icon Killer Cobra as your Level 100 Talent since boss damage is crucial throughout the entire fight.

Your Essence choice will tend to come down to either Worldvein Resonance Icon Worldvein Resonance or Blood of the Enemy Icon Blood of the Enemy. We recommend Blood of the Enemy for most situations, as it is easier to use and it offers a good compromise of single-target and AoE damage, depending on how you use it.

The fight itself has no Hunter-specific tips, although we recommend a build that is heavy on cooldown-reduction effects, just like The Hivemind.

For more information, please refer to our Vexiona guide.

10.

Drest'agath

We advise you to use the following talents against Drest'agath.

10.1.

Tips

On this fight, we recommend using the Breath of the Dying Icon Breath of the Dying Major Essence. Its ability should be used on targets that are below 20% or above 80% exclusively. You can also try and use it when tentacles are just about to die (~500K health) to try and get the 100% damage bonus and shortened cooldown.

When fighting Tentacles, you must be in melee range to be in line of sight on higher difficulties. You should be spamming Kill Command to get your pet to the tentacle as soon as possible before you cast Barbed Shot, as the pet needs to be in line of sight to receive its Frenzy buff from your Barbed Shot.

On non-Mythic difficulties, a Silithid pet can be useful.

For more information, please refer to our Drest'agath guide.
