Table of Contents

Thwack U is your first Brawler's Guild Rank 5 encounter. The fight can seem overwhelming at first, but it is simple once you understand the mechanics.

This encounter is not currently part of the Battle for Azeroth season of the Brawler's Guild.


Abilities and Strategy

During this encounter, you will face two bosses (Wes and Sonny), as well as a number of adds called Dancers which do not do anything except melee for low amounts of damage.

Wes only casts one ability, Sit Down Icon Sit Down, which has a 3-second cast time and is interruptible. If Wes completes the cast, you will be rooted for 2 seconds. Interrupting this cast is, therefore, very important.

Sonny only uses It's Lit Icon It's Lit; it also has a 3-second cast time and is also interruptible, and if successfully cast, it will deal a relatively insignificant amount of Fire damage to you.

In addition to the two bosses and Dancers, there are two more mechanics. The back wall of the arena is lined with speakers, and some of them will regularly fire off sonic waves in your direction. Getting hit by these waves deals damage (although it is not lethal). Since not all of the speakers are active at once, you can avoid being hit by the waves by standing in front of the inactive ones.

Moreover, every now and then, a fire wave will move along the floor, across the arena. Getting hit by it will deal damage to you, but you can avoid this by jumping over the wall when it reaches you.

The strategy for defeating Wes and Sonny is simple.

  • Interrupt Wes when he is casting Sit Down Icon Sit Down.
  • Avoid sonic waves and jump over the fire wall.
  • Use AoE damage or crowd control on the Dancer adds to keep them from dealing too much damage to you as their numbers grow.

Generic Advice

  • 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 Brawler's Battle Potion of Agility Icon Brawler's Battle Potion of Agility, a Brawler's Battle Potion of Intellect Icon Brawler's Battle Potion of Intellect, or a Brawler's Battle Potion of Strength Icon Brawler's Battle Potion of Strength.
  • When the 60-second cooldown on your potion is over, you can use the same potion again or you can use a Brawler's Coastal Healing Potion Icon Brawler's Coastal Healing Potion if you need healing.
  • Group up with other players so that you benefit from each other's buffs.
