2. Lore

Tichondrius is one of the 5 bosses that can be fought in an order of the raid's choosing.

The dreadlord Tichondrius, once leader of the nathrezim, was once slain by the newly awakened power of none other than Illidan Stormrage. Reconstituted in the Twisting Nether, Tichondrius returns to watch over Gul'dan on behalf of the Legion, ensuring that the orc warlock does not once again fail his masters.

3. Outline

Tichondrius is a four phase encounter in the Nighthold. Most of the fight involves light cleave while damaging the boss. There is also an intermission phase that involves a "dance" while cleaving down weak adds. Phase Three and Phase Four are identical to Phase One, however, they introduce new adds to the fight that will affect positioning and your groups tactical approach to the encounter. The fight tends to favor ranged as none of the adds can be tanked on top of the boss, making efficient cleave impossible for melee.

6. Bloodlust/Heroism/Time Warp

Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust usage on this fight is very flexible. It is recommended to use it after Illusionary Night Icon Illusionary Night ends when as many players as possible have obtained Essence of Night Icon Essence of Night for maximum damage. It can also be used to deal with Felsworn Spellguards or Sightless Watchers if you are struggling to kill them.
