Zuraal the Ascended
  • Spread around the boss to avoid getting hit by Null Palm if it is not targeted on you
  • After the boss casts Decimate move him out of the dark puddle

  • Kill the Coalesced Void adds as soon as possible, as they limit the space available in the room

  • After a player escapes Umbra Shift, the boss will be stunned and take increased damage

  • Avoid the traps on the ground
  • Players with immunities can clear traps by running over them

Viceroy Nezhar
  • The room shrinks over time, which is the soft enrage of the boss
  • When the boss casts Entropic Force, stand as close to him as possible to avoid being pushed back into the closing circle

  • The tank should always interrupt Howling Dark
  • The rest of the party should use interrupts on the Void Lashing ability of the Unbral Lashers
  • When the boss reaches 100 Insanity, he will summon two Shadowguard Voidtenders and start casting Eternal Twilight
  • You must kill the two Shadowguard Voidtenders and interrupt the boss to avoid instant group kill

  • Avoid standing in the patches of dark on the ground

  • Kill the Greater Rift Wardens as soon as possible to close the rifts

Enraged by Velen's defiant exodus, Kil'jaeden decreed that the Seat should be abandoned as a symbol of an irrelevant past... for the Legion had become their future.

Its once-gleaming halls now fallen into shadow, the Seat radiates a dark power that has drawn those seeking to harness the might of the Void and unleash it upon their enemies.

Zuraal the Ascended
Zuraal represents the Shadowguard's first success at creating a void-infused Broken whose mind has not fallen into madness. A renowned brawler in his past life, Zuraal uses his newfound dark strength to empower his attacks and decimate his foes.

  • Overview - Zuraal uses the void to empower himself and injure his opponents. Decimate creates pools of damaging void energy, while Coalesced Void empowers all of Zuraal's abilities. Every once in awhile, Zuraal will cast Umbra Shift on a random target, sending them to the Void Realm. While the party member is in the Void Realm, Zuraal the Ascended will fixate on random targets and chase them down, casting Maddened Strike if he gets too close. The party member in the Void Realm can kill Dark Aberrations to gain void energy in order to cast Void Tear. Casting Void Tear stuns Zuraal and removes Maddened Frenzy, causing him to no longer fixate.
    • Damage Dealers -
      • Kill off Coalesced Voids before they reach the boss.
      • While in the Void Realm, make sure to kill Dark Aberrations as quickly as possible to build up your void energy.
      • Void Tear stuns the boss and causes him to take additional damage when cast, so use this opportunity to deal as much damage as you can.
      • Make sure the boss does not reach you while he is fixated on you.
    • Healers -
      • Damage from Void Sludge will stack on every party member who stands in it.
      • Make sure the boss does not reach you while he is fixated on you.
    • Tanks -
      • Make sure to move the boss away from void energy left behind by Decimate and Null Palm, otherwise he will be empowered by Void Infusion.
      • While in the Void Realm, make sure to kill Dark Aberrations as quickly as possible to build up your void energy.
      • Void Tear stuns the boss and causes him to take additional damage when cast, so use this opportunity to deal as much damage as you can.
  • Zuraal the Ascended -
    • Null Palm - A cresting wave of chaotic magic splashes over enemies in front of the caster, dealing 400,000 at each impact point.
      • Void Sludge - Volatile void seeps in to the target, inflicting 59,150 Shadow damage every 1 sec. This effect stacks.
      • Void Infusion - Infused by the void leaking out of the Twisting Nether, increasing damage done by 100%.
    • Decimate - Infuses the caster's fist with void energy, inflicting 591,500 Shadow damage to their target and creating a pool of void energy that expands outwards from the impact point.
      • Void Sludge - Volatile void seeps in to the target, inflicting 59,150 Shadow damage every 1 sec. This effect stacks.
    • Coalesced Void - Coalesced Voids form within the center pool throughout the fight, and make their way towards the Void Brute. If they reach him, the Coalesced Void casts Dark Expulsion.
      • Dark Expulsion - Explodes in a shower of void energy, inflicting 422,500 Shadow to all enemies.
      • Umbral Ejection - Void energy wicks off the Coalesced Void, leaving pools of void energy at their location every 1 sec. These pools inflict 59,150 Shadow damage every 1 sec.
    • Umbra Shift - Infuses the target with void energy, inflicting 162,500 Shadow damage and knocking them backwards in to void realm.
      • Fixate - Fixates on a target, attacking them to the exclusion of other targets.
      • Maddened Frenzy - Maddened by the void, reducing Zuraal the Ascended's movement speed by 60%. Additionally, melee attacks cause knockback.
  • The Void Realm -
    • Dark Aberration - Dark Aberrations wander the void, attacking anyone who appears in their realm.
      • Release Void Energy - Upon death, the caster explodes, inflicting 55,000 Shadow damage and infusing nearby targets with void energy. At 100 Energy, the target can cast Void Tear.
    • Void Infusion - While in the Void Realm, void energy can be gathered by killing Dark Aberrations. After gathering 100 energy, Void Tear can be cast.
      • Void Tear - Tear a whole in the Void, bringing the caster back to the real world. Additionally, Void Tear stuns Zuraal the Ascended for 20 sec and increases damage taken by 200%.

The ever-tactical Saprish deploys the forces of the Shadowguard with calculated precision. Though a skilled commander and strategist, Saprish relishes taking a direct hand in battle. He turns his foes' weaknesses against them, leaving his vulnerable adversaries at the mercy of his voracious pets.

  • Overview - Saprish, in conjunction with his pets, works to debilitate his targets before eliminating them for good.
    Saprish uses Void Trap to stun his enemies, while Darkfang will teleport behind a random and cast Ravaging Darkness. Party members hit by Ravaging Darkness gives Saprish stacks of Hunter's Rush, increasing the damage done to the tank.
    • Damage Dealers -
      • Avoid being trapped by Saprish's Void Trap.
      • Darkfang's Ravaging Darkness empowers Saprish with every player hit. Avoid standing in it to keep the tank from being hit too hard.

    • Tanks -
      • Focus on acquiring threat on the main boss; his pet cannot be tanked.

Viceroy Nezhar
Like others of his ilk, Viceroy Nezhar is obsessed with harnessing the power of the Void to serve his own ambitions. Drawn to the Seat of the Triumvirate by the immense darkness emanating from deep within, Nezhar will stop at nothing to claim it for his own.

Given the viceroy's experiments at infusing vessels with the power of shadow, the implications of what he might accomplish on Argus are dire indeed.

  • Overview - At the beginning of the fight, Viceroy Nezhar creates a ring of Collapsing Void, which slowly closes in around the arena until it covers the majority of the space. During the fight, Viceroy Nezhar will make multiple attempts to push the party outwards into the Collapsing Void, using both Howling Dark and Entropic Force to do so. Viceroy Nezhar also summons Umbral Tentacles to assist him. These tentacles cast Void Lashing at a random target.
    • Damage Dealers -
      • Umbral Tentacles need to be a priority in to avoid the party being overrun with extra damage.
      • Howling Dark should be interrupted as much as possible.
      • Use any movement speed increases you have during Entropic Force to avoid being pushed into the Collapsing Void.
    • Healers -
      • Umbral Tentacle's Void Lashing stacks a healing debuff on each target.
      • Party members pushed into Collapsing Void should take priority until they are capable of moving out of it.
    • Tank -
  • Viceroy Nezhar -
    • Dark Blast - Hurls a bolt of void energy at the target, inflicting 520,000 Shadow damage.
    • Umbral Tentacles - Summons 3 Umbral Lashers, which cast Void Lashing at random targets.
      • Umbral Lasher -

        • Void Lashing - Fires a beam of void energy at the target, inflicting 195,000 Shadow damage every 1 sec for 6 sec. Additionally, Void Lashing reduces healing taken by 5% for 15 sec. This effect stacks.

      • Shadowguard Voidtender - When summoned, the Shadowguard Voidtenders cast Dark Bulwark on Viceroy Nezhar.
        • Dark Bulwark - Enshrines the target in dark energy, making them immune to damage and interrupts.
      • Eternal Twilight - Releases a cataclysmic blast of void energy, inflicting 16,900,000 Shadow damage to all enemies.
  • Collapsing Void - At the start of the fight, a ring of void energy coalesces around Viceroy Nezhar, which collapses inwards. Standing in this void energy afflicts the target with Collapsing Void.
    • Collapsing Void - Dark energy whips at the target, inflicting 422,500 Shadow damage every 1 sec.

When Velen and his followers fled Argus aboard the Genedar, the naaru L'ura stayed behind to buy the draenei time to escape. Kil'jaeden, enraged by this betrayal, ordered the wounded naaru sealed away in the Seat of the Triumvirate.

Over the long millennia that passed, L'ura fell from Light to Void. Her elegant song of courage and hope became a shadowy dirge of despair, luring those seeking to lay claim to her power.

  • Overview - L'ura begins the fight by open portals to the Void, calling in Greater Rift Wardens for defense. While the portals are open, L'ura channels Naaru's Lament, inflicting Shadow damage to all party members. Additionally, L'ura is immune to damage due to Darkened Shroud. Killing the Greater Rift Warden gives Alleria Windrunner the opportunity to close the portal, and use the void energy she receives to cast Dark Torrent. After opening two waves of portals, L'ura continues to to channel Naaru's Lament, but also engages the party directly, gaining new abilities.
    • Damage Dealers -
      • Make sure to spread to catch all bolts fired by each Greater Rift Warden's Fragment of Despair.
      • Prioritize eliminating the Greater Rift Wardens when they are present in order for Alleria to close the rifts.
      • L'ura is vulnerable and takes additional damage while affected by Backlash. Use this time as an opportunity to deal the most damage to L'ura.
    • Healers -
      • L'ura's Naaru's Lament causes party-wide damage, while Void Blast deals strong single-target damage to random party members.
      • The longer L'ura can channel Naaru's Lament, the more damage each of her other attacks can do.
    • Tanks -
      • Greater Rift Warden's Sorrow Shock can cause a spike in damage taken, so be prepared for it.
      • Active portals will constantly spawn Waning Voids, which will need to be picked up when available.
  • L'ura -
    • Call to the Void - L'ura calls out to the void, opening a series of void portals. Once opened, L'ura begins draining energy from the portals and starts channeling Naaru's Lament.
    • Naaru's Lament - Sings a wailing dirge, inflicting 65,000 Shadow damage to all enemies every 3 sec until cancelled. Additionally, L'ura's casts Growing Darkness every 2 sec.
      • Growing Darkness - Lura gains energy from void, increasing damage done by 2% every 2 sec. This effect stacks.
    • Void Blast - Hurls a bolt of void energy at the target, inflicting 75,000 Shadow damage and an additional 50,000 Shadow damage every 1 sec for 5 sec.
    • Final Dirge - Once L'ura has been severed from all available portals, she enters the fight, becoming mobile and capable of attacking players directly. L'ura continues to channel Naaru's Lament and cast Void Blast, and also gains the ability Umbral Cadence.
