1.

Disclaimer

 In this section, you will find information about each boss individually in  Aberrus. These tips and build recommendations will not  change regardless of whether you have the set bonus. Instead, you will  be primarily deciding if you should run Beacon of Virtue Icon Beacon of Virtue or  Beacon of Faith Icon Beacon of Faith. While Virtue has the higher potential ceiling,  it can be quite mana-intensive so do not hesitate to swap off of it  when facing fights where mana is a concern.

3.1.

Tips

     
  •   Despite being a dragon, this boss does not have a tail swipe mechanic meaning   that it is safe to stand behind.  
  •

The Amalgamation Chamber

Recommended Talents:

     
  •   BEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQAARAAACQLJFoUik0aIlk4AlkEKaiGQSJJIJEpgmkIAgAAFgQSCC  
4.1.

Tips

     
  •  In phase 1, the bosses will be split apart. During this time, you will gain a  stacking debuff, either Corrupting Shadow Icon Corrupting Shadow or Blazing Heat.  If your stacks ever get too high, you can run to the other boss to let your  stacks reset and fall off.  
  •

Recommended Talents:

     
  •   BEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQAARAAACQLJFoUik0aIlk4AlkEKaiGQSJJIJEpgmkIAgAAFgQSCC  
     
  •   You can use Blessing of Protection Icon Blessing of Protection to remove the bleed effect from Rending Charge Icon Rending Charge.  
  •  
  •   You will need to dispel players with Unstable Essence Icon Unstable Essence when Thadrion   is active. However, it will spread to another player with each dispel, so you will   want to only dispel when a player reaches high stacks. You will also want to avoid   dispelling if the player is in the raid, as it will leave a giant circle under them,   likely killing any player it touches.  
  •  
  •   Rionthus will spawn orbs around the room that will grant the boss a massive   shield if they are able to reach him. Help soak these orbs when you notice them   close to you.  
  •  
  •   When Rionthus is casting Deep Breath Icon Deep Breath, you will want to look   in the air and stay as far away from him as possible. He will pick 1/3rd of the   room to fly down and kill anyone in that area. Always be safe and move as far   as possible to one side.
