Shortcut 1:

If you like you can skip the right path of trash mobs and take the left path that ends.

Neltharions-Lair-Shortcut

You will then need to drop down onto the bosses platform. I have seen a few groups take this side path but be careful as you will only have a small section to run around during boss fight because there will still be trash packs on the right side.

Bosses:

1. Rokmora2. Ularogg Cragshaper3. Naraxas4. Dargrul the Underking

Rokmora-ModelCopy/Paste Macro:
/i Tank taunt the Skitter adds that spawn. Boss stomps ground, inflicts high damage to players & kills remaining Skitters. Avoid green clouds on floor (left from dead Skitters). Tank face boss away from group for frontal cone Razor Shards.

Heroic Differences: Player stand still during Crystalline Ground, charges the floor & damaging anyone who moves.
Kill Skitters before they are destroyed by Rupturing Shatter. Remaining Skitters will explode damaging all players, the lower their health the less damage they do.

Ularogg-Cragshaper-ModelCopy/Paste Macro:
/i Boss transforms into moving statue, destroy correct one to reveal boss (the longer he hides the more damage group take). Destroy Bellowing Idols to stop Falling Debris. Move out of Hands in ground. Tank takes high damage from Sunder, healer be ready.

Naraxas-ModelCopy/Paste Macro:
/i Pulls in a player with Spiked Tongue, run away to avoid being eaten. Kill Wormspeaker adds before they eaten. Player with Rancid Maw move away from others, leaves green circles. Avoid green pools by boss. At 20% goes into Frenzy.

Heroic Differences: Angry Crowd throws rocks at players continuously during the fight.

Dargrul-the-Underking-ModelCopy/Paste Macro:
/i Avoid Landslide, spikes erupt in a line. Tank use Active Mitigation for Molten Crash. Crystal Spikes erupt under a player, move out of brown circle. Dps kill Molten Charskins, run them into spikes to stun. Take cover behind spikes to avoid Magma Wave.

Heroic Differences: Boss uses Magma Breaker (instead of Molten Charskins) each step does fire damage to party.
Focus kill Molten Charskins (Rising Inferno stacks longer they are alive) it increases their movement speed & damage by 2%.
Careful of Lava Geyser & Flame Gout during Magma Wave. Lava pools erupt through cracks & fireballs erupt.

Racing-Snails-The-Stone-Market

Past this theres a mini track with 3 snails racing. Unfortunately they end up getting killed because of a trash pack that’s standing by them and your groups aoe will end up killing them.

If you get a chance to look before your group pulls the mobs you will see the snails running around the circle race track.

Mommy Vileshard

Near beginning of the dungeon on The Lost Road if your group doesn’t pull too quickly you will see a Vileshard Hulk grooming a Vileshard Chunk, they appear to be mother and child.

Mommy-Vileshard-Neltharions-Lair

If you get a chance to see the Vileshard Hulk seems to be picking off and throwing crystals from the Vileshard Chunks back.

Get out while you still can!

Once you drop down the water shoot at beginning you enter the start of the dungeon. If you decided you want to leave you can get a teleport back to the entrance of the dungeon.

Spiritwalker-Ebonhorn-Neltharions-Lair

Speak with Spiritwalker Ebonhorn on the right-hand side, he will ask ‘If you are unsure of the path you are about to take, i can return you to the surface’. Just click the return button to be sent back outside.

Fish Toss

When you have to jump in a barrel you will also get an extra action bar called ‘Fish Toss’. It says you can hurl a fish from the barrel.

Fish-Toss-Neltharions-Lair

You target where you want to throw the fish, if you look up on the sides of the cliffs you will see Rockbait Fishers.

They seem to be fishing and minding their own business so this little game of Fish Toss is something fun to do while your being pulled down the river.
