Chronomatic Anomaly is the second boss in the Nighthold.

The cavern at the base of the Nightwell is a maelstrom of raw energy, as the power to fuel an entire civilization courses from the earth. Born from this chaotic flux, the Chronomatic Anomaly is an embodiment of the power of the Eye of Aman'thul. As it lashes out with energy attacks, the bursts of energy warp the very flow of time.



The Chronomatic Anomaly is a single phase encounter with a unique twist. The flow of time shifts as the encounter progresses, which causes the timers on the boss' abilities to change, along with the attack and casting speeds and cooldown reduction of the raid group.
