Bosses:

1. General Umbriss2. Forgemaster Throngus3. Drahga Shadowburner4. Erudax, the Duke of Below

General-Umbriss-ModelCopy/Paste Macro:
/i Attacks current target with Bleeding Wound, heal them above 90% to remove this. Blitz charges on a random players location, move away. Faces a location & fires a ground tremor, avoid this cone. Summons Troggs to fight.

Heroic Differences: When a Maligant Trogg dies it will cast on boss & Dwellers Modgud’s Malice, this increases bosses damage by 100% for 20 sec & transforms Dwellers into Maligant Troggs.

Forgemaster-Throngus-ModelCopy/Paste Macro:
/i Stomps the ground, careful of Cave In, stones will fall so move out of area. Picks different weapons (Shield, Swords, Mace) that come with new abilities.

Heroic Differences: Flaming Shield (Shield Ability): fire erupts from shield in a frontal cone, avoid this. Burning Flames (Swords Ability): Inflicts a fire dot to his target, can be dispelled. Lava Patch (Mace Ability): avoid fire patches that appear on ground.

Dragha-Shadowburner-ModelCopy/Paste Macro:
/i Blasts players with Shadowbolt. Flaming Spirit chase a random player, kill before they reach player. At 30% Valiona joins fight. Avoid frontal cone Valiona’s Flame. Move out of pool of Seeping Twilight.

Heroic Differences: Valiona: Avoid the large cone Devouring Flames, further away you are the less damage you take.

/i Fires Binding Shadows at a players location, it drains life then healing boss for high amount, avoid this. Tank takes high damage from Feeble Body effect. Careful of damage from being inside storm. Interrupt Faceless Corruptors Umbral Mending.

Don't Need to Break Eggs to Make an Omelet

Grim-Batol-Dont-Need-to-Break-Eggs-to-Make-an-Omelet-Achievement

Must be on Heroic difficulty.

Defeat Erudax without letting a Faceless Corruptor begin to cast Twilight Corruption on any of Alexstrasza’s Eggs.

The Faceless Corruptor’s appear from the entrance, you can slow them to help dps them quicker before they stop to cast Twilight Corruption on the eggs.

If your higher level this will be easy to complete as you will be able to kill boss first or kill the Faceless Corruptor’s before they even have a chance to cast.

This achievement goes towards ‘Glory of the Cataclysm Hero’.

Umbrage for Umbriss

Grim-Batol-Umbrage-for-Umbriss-Achievement

Must be on Heroic difficulty.

Defeat General Umbriss while he is affected with Modgud’s Malice.

Dps the boss down as much as possible, do not go below 30% as this starts his Frenzy and no more adds will spawn.

When a Malignant Trogg spawns you will need to kill it next to the boss (within 8 yards) this should put Modgud’s Malice on the boss.

Modgud’s Malice lasts 20 seconds (it increases bosses damage by 100%) so you need to attack the boss with everything you have.

As long as you can nuke the boss down within those 20 seconds of Modgud’s Malice you will get the achievement.

This achievement goes towards ‘Glory of the Cataclysm Hero’.

Soften them Up

Pick up this quest from Velastrasza at beginning of dungeon.

You need to Free a Red Drake and use it to destroy 30 Troggs and 15 Twilight’s Hammer minions.

Grim-Batol-Soften-them-Up-Quest

Kill the mobs in front of the dragons, clear the net then use your action button to fire down on the Troggs and Twilight’s Hammer minions as the drake flys you round.

The drakes are only ridable once each per dungeon so you might need to go again next dungeon to get all 30 Troggs and 15 Twilight’s Hammer minions.
