    Warmaster Blackhorn Strategy, Loot, Discussions

    Warmaster Blackhorn

    Though once vast in number, only a few dozen twilight dragons now remain. Astride these hardened survivors are the last vestiges of the Twilight's Hammer's army: the elite drake riders of Deathwing's personal escort. Led by the insidious Warmaster Blackhorn, they move with unholy purpose, driven to protect their dark master.

    Stage One: Dragonriders, Attack!
    Flying alongside the Skyfire and surveying the scene while his massive twilight drake lobs balls of destruction at the gunship, Warmaster Blackhorn gives the order for his elite dragonriders to swoop into battle.

    • The Skyfire - Sky Captain Swayze helms this massive gunship equipped with numerous cannons and a pair of harpoon guns for its defense. The gunship is sturdy but not indestructible, and if it sustains too much damage the pursuit of Deathwing will come to an untimely end.
      • Harpoon Guns - Alliance engineers equipped the Skyfire with two repurposed harpoon guns, seized during its prior service in Northrend. Harpoon gunners spear the enemy's Assault Drakes and reel them in to bring them within reach of ranged attackers on the deck. The drakes strain against the line, eventually breaking free and returning to a safe distance. After a pause to reload, the harpoon gunners then spear their target anew.
      • Deck Fire - As the Skyfire takes damage, destructive fires break out on the ship and spread rapidly across its deck. Crewmembers rush to extinguish these blazes and keep them in check. Any player standing within a fire suffers 45000 Fire damage per second.
      • Goriona - The massive twilight drake that is the mount of Warmaster Blackhorn himself.
        • Twilight Onslaught - Goriona unleashes a massive blast of dark energy at the Skyfire. Twilight Onslaught deals 3000000 Shadow damage, divided evenly among all victims within its 10 yard radius, as well as the Skyfire itself. If the attack strikes the deck of the Skyfire without hitting any player, the gunship itself suffers the full damage.
        • Broadside - Goriona periodically unleashes a vicious barrage of fireballs that slam into the side of the Skyfire, causing the skip to suffer damage equal to 20% of its remaining structural integrity.
      • Twilight Assault Drake - These drakes will strafe across the deck of the ship, depositing their fierce riders, and then retreat to a safe distance to bombard the gunship.
        • Twilight Barrage - The twilight drakes launch bursts of dark energy at the Skyfire. Twilight Barrage deals 300000 Shadow damage, divided evenly among all players within its 5 yard radius and the Skyfire. If the attack strikes the deck of the Skyfire without hitting any player, the gunship itself suffers the full damage instead.

          On Heroic Difficulty, Twilight Barrage also increases Shadow damage taken by 50% for 6 sec. This effect stacks.
      • Twilight Elite Dreadblade
        • Blade Rush - The Dreadblade charges at the location of a random distant foe, dealing 120000 Physical damage to all enemies in its path.
        • Degeneration - The Dreadblade carves a swath of destruction with its dark sword, dealing 120000 Shadow damage to enemies in a frontal cone, and afflicting them with a lingering effect that deals 9000 Shadow damage every 2 sec for 1 min. This effect stacks.
      • Twilight Elite Slayer
        • Blade Rush - The Dreadblade charges at the location of a random distant foe, dealing 150000 Physical damage to all enemies in its path.
        • Brutal Strike - The Slayer deals a vicious blow with its jagged sword, causing 150 Physical damage, and afflicting the target with a lingering effect that deals 9000 Physical damage every 2 sec for 1 min. This effect tacks.
      • Twilight Sapper - Sleek infiltrator drakes will airdrop goblins, strapped with powerful explosives, onto the deck of the ship. These Sappers will rush to breach the gunship bridge, where they can detonate their destructive payload for maximum effect.
        • Detonate - Upon reaching the Skyfire's bridge, the Sapper detonates his explosives, dealing 250000 Fire damage to enemies within 8 yards, and damaging the Skyfire itself for 20% of its total durability. This explosion is also fatal to the Sapper himself.


      Stage Two: Looks Like I'm Doing This Myself
      Once the Skyfire's defenders defeat three waves of dragonriders, Warmaster Blackhorn himself will leap down onto the deck of the gunship.

      • Warmaster Blackhorn
        • Devastate - Blackhorn sunders the target's armor, dealing 120% weapon damage and applying the Sunder Armor effect, reducing armor by 20% for 30 sec. This effect stacks.
        • Disrupting Roar - Warmaster Blackhorn screams fiercely, dealing 97500 Physical damage to all enemies, also interrupting the spellcasting of enemies within 10 yards for 8 sec.
        • Shockwave - Blackhorn strikes the ground, unleashing a wave of force that deals 100000 Physical damage to enemies in a 80 yard frontal cone, stunning them for 4 sec.
        • Vengeance - As Warmaster Blackhorn takes damage during the course of the fight, he inflicts 1% more damage for each percentage of his missing health.
        • Siphon Vitality - When severely injured, Warmaster Blackhorn drains health directly from Goriona. The health drain inflicts damage equal to 20% of Goriona's remaining health, and heals Blackhorn accordingly.
    • Goriona - After depositing her master on the deck of the Skyfire, Goriona hovers alongside the Skyfire, raining destruction down on the adventurers. Once Goriona has suffered sufficient damage, she will break off and flee, abandoning her master on the Skyfire.

      On Heroic mode, upon reaching 80% health, Goriona will land on the Skyfire deck to assist her master.
      • Twilight Flames - Goriona fires a blast of dark energy at a random player, dealing 60000 Shadow damage to enemies in a 8 yard radius. Twilight Flames lingers on the deck of the Skyfire, dealing 45000 Shadow damage to players within 7 yards every 1 sec for 30 sec.
      • Twilight Breath - Goriona unleashes a torrent of dark flame, inflicting 125000 Shadow damage in a yard cone in front of the caster.
      • Consuming Shroud - Goriona envelops an enemy target in twilight energy, absorbing the next 150000 healing received. When Consuming Shroud absorbs incoming healing, unleashed energy will deal damage equal to the healing absorbed to all allies. Dying while afflicted by Consuming Shroud will release all remaining energy at once.

    I wonder if Twilight Onslaught will be soloable as a Shadow Priest. Seems like a nice fight, looking forward to it.

    You can solo soak the smalls ones but the big ones need more then 1 as the other half of the damage does hit the ship.

    on 25man LFR we got the same item twice, same with 25man normal.

    Im not sure how the loot works fully chance to get one of the random boss loots and then a normal boss drop or mix and match.

    When I killed it on 10man normal he dropped shoulders and mace so who knows.

    Hey. I used a modified version of Caith UI, thus 50% of the addons were broken on PTR, so I disabled alot of them.
