Overview

The Council of Blood, three deadly Venthyr nobles, attack simultaneously. They do not share health, but are restored to full health and gain additional abilities when one of their allies falls. When any council member is reduced to 50% health, the living bosses temporarily flee the arena, and a round of the Danse Macabre Icon Danse Macabre begins. Players must find their assigned spaces on the dance floor and perform the courtly dance moves in sequence. When the dance concludes the bosses will rejoin the fray.
