Madness of Deathwing

Madness of Deathwing - Dragon Soul

Phase One: The Final Assault
Deathwing assaults his enemies as long as he is attached to the platforms by his twisted limbs.

    • Elementium Blast - If the Elementium Bolt reaches its destination, the bolt inflicts 468000 Fire damage to all players and an additional 468000 Fire damage every 5.2 sec until players destroy the Elementium Bolt. The initial damage decreases the further the player stands from the targeted location
  • Corrupting Parasite - A Corrupting Parasite inflicts increasing Shadow damage periodically. When Corrupting Parasite's duration ends, the parasite detaches from the player and causes a Parasitic Backlash. This inflicts 250000 Fire damage to players within 10 yards of the host.

  • Limb Tentacle
    Deathwing is grasping onto each platform with one of his Limbs, holding him up.

Phase Two: The Last Stand

    • Congealing Blood - If a Congealing Blood reaches Deathwing, it heals him for 1% of his maximum health.

    • Shrapnel - The Fragment fires a piece of Shrapnel at a random player, inflicting 400000 unresistable Physical damage.
  • Elementium Terror - Pieces of Deathwing's armor chip off, forming two Elementium Terrors nearby.

  • Corrupted Blood - Corrupted Blood gushes from Deathwing, inflicting Fire damage every 2 sec. The damage increases as Deathwing's health lowers. At 15%, 10%, and 5% remaining health, Deathwing hemorrages. This increases the damage dealt by Corrupted Blood.


The great aspects assist in the fight against Deathwing. Each aspect will channel Expose Weakness on their respective Limb Tentacle when Deathwing begins to cast Cataclysm, increasing the damage done to the Tentacle by 100%. Additionally each aspect will begin to channel Concentration after it's respective tentacle is destroyed, preventing them from assisting the players with their presence and their special powers. When Phase two begins all of the aspects will resume assisting the champions.

Additionally any enemy creatures within the Time Zone have their attack speed decreased by 50%. In Heroic Difficulty the Time Zone slows the effects of Corrupting Parasite.
  • Ysera
    • Ysera's Presence - The Presence of the great aspect Ysera increases healing done by 20%.
