Few places in Zandalar are more sacred than Kings' Rest. Every king, conqueror, or tyrant who has held control of the Zandalari empire is housed within this great city of the dead to protect and honor not only their bodies, but also their spirits.

Entry has historically been restricted solely to the Zandalari priesthood and royalty, but as Zul's dark magic winds its way through the tomb you must venture inside and put an end to the darkness that has found purchase there.

The Golden Serpent
Kings' Rest has come under attack before. After a foolish troll tried to summon Hakkar the Soulflayer to this island many millennia ago, the priests of Zandalar created a mighty construct to defend this tomb. The Golden Serpent has stood against intruders ever since, judging who is worthy to enter these sacred halls.

  • Overview - The Golden Serpent spits gold at party members, who then leave it behind in the form of Molten Gold. The Golden Serpent will later animate these pools of gold with Lucre's Call. Kill the animated molten gold before it reaches him to avoid having it empower him with Luster.
    • Tank -
      • When The Golden Serpent uses Lucre's Call, move it away from pools of gold to give players a chance to kill Animated Gold before they reach the boss.
      • Tail Thrash deals heavy Physical damage.
    • Healer -
      • Players afflicted with Spit Gold will take heavy damage.
    • Damage Dealers -
      • Move away from the Golden Serpent and your group members when afflicted by Spit Gold to better place Molten Gold.
      • Use stuns, roots, and knockback effects to help your group prevent Animated Gold from reaching The Golden Serpent.
  • Spit Gold - Spits molten gold at a player, inflicting 24 Fire damage every 3 sec. for 9 sec, and creating a pool of Molten Gold at the player's location afterwards.
    • Molten Gold - Inflicts 27 Fire damage every 2 sec. to players who touch the molten gold.
  • Lucre's Call - Turns all pools of Molten Gold in the area into Animated Gold.
    • Animated Gold - Attempts to move towards The Golden Serpent. If any reach it, The Golden Serpent absorbs them and gains a stack of Luster. When any Animated Gold are killed, they return to pools of Molten Gold.
      • Luster - Shields the Golden Serpent for 0% of its health in damage, and increases its damage done by 50% until removed.
  • Serpentine Gust - Unleashes a gust of wind, inflicting 45 damage to players within 15 yards and knocking them back.
  • Tail Thrash - A heavy hitting melee strike that inflicts 65 Physical damage.
  • Mythic Difficulty Only - Kings' Rest is only available in Mythic Difficulty.

Mchimba the Embalmer
There was once a caste of Zandalari whose purpose was to preserve and defend the remains of past rulers. But when a terrible plague of corrupted blood tore through the empire, it was too risky for mortals to handle the dead. Golems were summoned for the grim work of preservation and burial; they have been used ever since.

  • Overview - Mchimba the Embalmer is a construct enchanted to entomb the ancient kings of Zandalar, and uses his powers to entomb players and prepare them for their eternal rest.
  • Burn Corruption - Burns the ground, inflicting 49 Fire damage to players within 10 yards and creating a patch of Burning Ground.
    • Burning Ground - Inflicts 37 Fire damage every 2 sec. to any players inside a patch of Burning Ground.
  • Drain Fluids - Prepares the target for mummification by draining their fluids, inflicting 16 Nature damage every 2 sec. for 8 sec. If the effect lasts the full duration, it applies Dessication to the target.
    • Dessication - Reduces damage done by 50% and movement speed by 50%. Lasts until the target is healed above 90% health.
  • Entomb - Entombs the target within one of the crypts inside the chamber. After casting Entomb, Mchimba will move between the crypts, opening them one at a time, beginning with the crypts that do not contain the entombed player.
    Releasing the Entombed player will interrupt the ritual, preventing Mchimba from releasing additional Half-Finished Mummies.
    • Open Coffin - Opens one of the crypts, releasing the occupant. Each open coffin reduces the time required to open subsequent coffins.
    • Struggle - While trapped, players can struggle against the doors of the crypt, alerting other players to their presence.
    • Half-Finished Mummy - When a coffin that does not contain a player is opened, a Half-Finished Mummy will emerge and attack the party.
      • Wretched Discharge - Afflicts all players with a disease, causing 16 Nature damage every 2 sec. for 12 sec.
  • Mythic Difficulty Only - Kings' Rest is only available in Mythic Difficulty.

The Council of Tribes
There was once a time when no single emperor could rule Zandalar. After a period of civil war, the heads of three families formed an uneasy coalition and tried to rule the empire together. Though they did not often agree, there was peace in Zandalar. Briefly.

  • Overview - The battle will begin with one of the three councilors - the order that the councilors join the battle changes from week to week.

    When a councilor is defeated, they will return to their urn and the next will join the encounter. However, the defeated councilor will periodically rejoin the battle to use a single ability, and then return to their urn.

    When all three councilors are defeated, the encounter ends.
    • Tank -
      • Aka'ali the Conqueror's Debilitating Backhand will inflict heavy damage and apply Shattered Defenses for a short time - try to keep away from her while affected by it.
      • Kula the Butcher's Whirling Axes start close to her - moving out of melee range can make them easier to dodge.
      • Move in front of players targeted by Barrel Through to reduce the damage they take.
    • Healer -
      • Aka'ali the Conqueror's Debilitating Backhand will inflict heavy damage to your tank.
      • Kula the Butcher's Severing Axe inflicts heavy damage over time.
      • If Zanazal the Wise's Thundering Totem is able to finish its cast of Thundering Crash, it will interrupt spell casting - stop casting if its cast completes to avoid lockout.
    • Damage Dealers -
  • Kula the Butcher -
    • Whirling Axes - Unleashes a whirling attack that inflicts 35 Physical damage to players within 10 yards, knocking them back.

Dazar, The First King
Dazar. The founder and first King of Zandalar, who led an exodus of his people out of the muck and mire and built a city of gold. The first tamer of raptors. The warrior undefeated. The father of a kingdom.

His eternal repose cut short by Zul's dark magic, it lies to you to once again put him to rest.
