The Vortex Pinnacle

LFD Level: 81 – 85 (Heroic Level: 85)
Minimum Level: 81
Timewalking Level: 86+

To complete Looking for Dungeon (LFD) you need to ‘Defeat Asaad’.
Lurking Tempest mobs will attack you with Lightning Bolt from behind, if you turn and face them though they will play dead.
On Nimbus Rise (heading to boss 2) when you come across the Howling Gales (swirling orbs) you need to attack them as you are running through to avoid the knock back.
Nearer end of dungeon you will see mobs walking in/out of a lightning triangle. They cannot be damaged while inside the triangle or be interrupted (some physical interrupts will work).
