MMO-Champion - Firelands - Baleroc Loot and Strategy

Baleroc, the Gatekeeper

Baleroc earned a reputation as a merciless combatant during the elemental wars of ancient Azeroth. Now that he is confined to the Firelands, Baleroc's sanity has dwindled. Few elementals dare disturb him, fearful that they will become victim to his battle lust.

Baleroc's assault periodically awakens a burning spark within his current target, increasing the target's physical damage taken by 20%, but also raising their maximum health by 20%. Every time Baleroc applies Blaze of Glory, he gains an application of Incendiary Soul.

  • Incendiary Soul - Every time Baleroc applies Blaze of Glory, he gains an application of Incendiary Soul, increasing his Fire damage dealt by 20%.

Shards of Torment
Baleroc summons a crystal amongst his foes, which continually channels a shadowy beam on the nearest player. In 25 player raids, Baleroc summons two crystals.

  • Torment - The Shard of Torment inflicts 4000 Shadow damage per application to the nearest player, stacking once per second.
  • Tormented - When Torment fades from a player, they are afflicted by the Tormented effect, which increases their Shadow damage taken by 250% and reduces the player's healing done by 50% for 40 sec. Direct melee contact with any other player will apply a fresh copy of the Tormented effect to that player.
  • Wave of Torment - If no player stands within 15 yards of a Shard of Torment, the Shard pulses this effect, inflicting 15000 Shadow damage each second to all players.
  • Vital Spark - If a player casts a direct heal on someone being damaged by Torment, the healer gains an application of Vital Spark for each three stacks of Torment on the target. Casting a single-target direct heal on a target affected by Blaze of Glory will trigger Vital Flame.
    • Vital Flame - Vital Flame increases healing done to targets affected by Blaze of Glory by 5% per stack of Vital Spark consumed, lasting for 15 sec. When Vital Flame expires, it restores the Vital Spark stacks consumed to create the effect.

Blades of Baleroc
Baleroc periodically empowers one of his blades with Shadow or Fire energy, and wields it alone for 15 sec.

  • Decimation Blade - Baleroc's melee strikes do no Physical damage but instead inflict Shadow damage equal to 90% of the target's maximum health, but always at least 250000 damage. This damage cannot be resisted or mitigated. Baleroc's time between attacks increases by 101% while this effect is active.
  • Inferno Blade - Baleroc's melee strikes do no Physical damage but instead inflict 100000 Fire damage.

Baleroc links two players to each other for 8 sec. If the chosen players move within yards of each other, the effect dissipates harmlessly. If the effect runs its full course, then both players explode, inflicting 100000 Fire damage to all players within yards.
