To see how difficult Halls of Atonement is to complete on Mythic+ this week, we recommend checking out our Mythic+ dungeon difficulty rankings, linked below.
Please consult our Halls of Atonement encounter journal pages for more information regarding what the bosses do exactly in each difficulty.
Halkias, the Sin-Stained Goliath
- Spawn the boss by killing the 3 Shards of Halkias around the starting area.
- Do not stand on the tank ( Crumbling Slam).
- Quickly dodge the red swirly ( Heave Debris).
- Immediately dispel the fear that goes on a random DPS ( Sinlight Visions).
- Dodge the rotating cross-pattern laser ( Refracted Sinlight). Keep in mind that it can change direction randomly.
- On Mythic, stay inside the boss's red circle in order to be immune to the fear ( Light of Atonement).
- Spawn the boss by attempting to open the door at the top of the stairs.
- Quickly dodge the red swirly on the ground ( Blood Torrent).
- Gather the adds and kill them near each other ( Stone Call).
- The player that gets the Curse of Stone will also get a brown circle around them, and they should quickly move to the dead adds so that the boss will destroy them and prevent them from reviving ( Stone Shattering Leap).
- On Mythic, all players get the curse, but still only one player gets the brown circle. Also, the adds now have a cast that should be interrupted ( Villainous Bolt).
High Adjudicator Aleez
- Prioritize interrupting Volley of Power over Bolt of Power.
- If fixated by the add spawn, bring it to one of the red vessels in the area to have it despawn ( Vessel of Atonement).
- If not fixated, stay away from the add ( Pulse from Beyond).
- Dodge the big orange swirlies ( Anima Fountain).
- Dodge the statue thrown around by the boss, indicated by a red arrow on the ground ( Telekinetic Toss).
- Dodge the frontal cone that is cast in a random direction ( Unleashed Suffering).
- Keep the tank alive through the 18 second ramping DoT ( Stigma of Pride).
- Dodge all four statues after the boss teleports to the middle of the room.
- The tank should stand between the red glowing statue and the boss when he is casting Ritual of Woe.
- On Mythic, the boss casts Ritual of Woe on all of the statues at once, so four players need to intercept the beams.
Before the First Boss (Halkias)
- Vicious Gargon
- Focus kill Gargons, because they apply a stacking bleed to the tank.
- Depraved Houndmaster
- Depraved Obliterator
- Interrupt the Curse of Obliteration cast. If it goes off, move away from other players or decurse it.
- Shard of Halkias
Between the First Boss (Halkias) and the Second Boss (Echelon)
- Stoneborn Reaver
- Focus kill Reavers and interrupt Turn to Stone at all costs.
- Stoneborn Slasher
- Don't stand in front of Slashers, because they cast a cleave-knockback.
Between the Third Boss (Aleez) and the Fourth Boss (Chamberlain)
- Inquisitor Sigar
- Kill the Tormented Soul adds to prevent Sigar from healing himself.
