Raid Boss Summaries

Kazzara, The Hellforged

"Although Neltharion would not use them himself until much later, he experimented with elementium plating in the early days of Aberrus. The end result of elementium and shadowflame was Kazzara, who was deemed far too unstable to release. Driven mad by the excruciating pain of her elementium plates, she now serves as the guardian of the Shadowed Crucible."

Made Available: Week of May 8th

The Amalgamation Chamber

advertisem*nt

"The Eternal Blaze burns with the heat of a thousand suns, while the essence of Shadow blooms with darkness incarnate. Although exceptionally powerful on their own, when combined, they surge with the unchecked might of shadowflame, creating a whirlwind of ultimate destruction."

Made Available: Week of May 8th

The Forgotten Experiments

"The development of the dracthyr produced many iterations, some more successful than others. Early versions of the experiment proved far too volatile to destroy. Kept dormant for thousands of years, these creations have now awakened, and seek to test their prowess against the champions of Azeroth."

Made Available: Week of May 8th

Assault of the Zaqali

"Led by Warlord Kagni, the Zaqali warband has launched an all-out assault against the Shadowed Crucible in search of their missing Elder, Rashok. Brutal and ruthless, Kagni is willing to employ any tactic to succeed."

Made Available: Week of May 22nd

Rashok, The Elder

advertisem*nt

"Imprisoned within Aberrus for a millennia, the Zaqali elder Rashok has been perpetually drained of the raging flame within him to power Neltharion’s twisted laboratory. Existing on the edge of death for so long has driven the elder mad. Should he break free, his vengeance will scour the Shadowed Crucible’s halls."

Made Available: Week of May 22nd

The Vigilant Steward, Zskarn

"Long ago, Zskarn was tasked with testing the mettle of Neltharion’s experiments. Only the most powerful would pass muster and keep their lives. The latest visitors to the Shadowed Crucible have attracted his unwavering attention—but his approval will be much harder to earn."

Made Available: Week of May 22nd

Magmorax

"Raised from a pup by Neltharion, the only thing stronger than the loyalty of Magmorax is his appetite. The lava hydra guards the passage into the deepest chambers of the Shadowed Crucible, keeping his master’s secrets safely hidden from prying eyes."

Made Available: Week of June 5th

Echo of Neltharion

advertisem*nt

"Tucked away in the depths of the Shadowed Crucible, Neltharion’s sanctum was a place of refuge and research for the Earth-Warder. Some say that echoes of his powerful presence still linger here, contemplating the future of the black dragonflight and how to obtain the power to ensure its success."

Made Available: Week of June 5th

Scalecommander Sarkareth

"As leader of the Sundered Flame, Scalecommander Sarkareth broke away from the rest of the dracthyr to forge a new future. He has since led his forces to Aberrus, intent on claiming the legacy he believes rightfully belongs to his kind, and is willing to do anything to obtain it."

Made Available: Week of June 19th
