The Primal Council

Updated on 11/28/2022, 12:15:50

These masters of the elements are ruthless in their pursuit of power. Embar Firepath is as merciless as the fire she commands. Opalfang wields the might of the earth to crush her enemies. Kadros Icewrath is cold and cruel, while his sibling Dathea Stormlash is as wild and unpredictable as a raging storm.

    Fight Summary

    Primal Council is a single phase encounter with four bosses. 

    Opalfang & Embar Firepath are melee bosses and require tank swaps.
    Kadros Icewrath & Dathea Stormlash are caster bosses and require interrupts.

    These bosses do not share health and when a boss dies it will channel its Convocation ability which deals increasing damage until all other bosses are defeated.

    • This DoT will also reduce your Fire damage taken. Aim to clear at 5-6 stacks to gain some damage reduction for Meteor Axes
    • These stacks can be removed by moving to Scorched Ground.
    • If you reach 10 stacks you are trapped in a Frost Tomb where you will take a larger amount of Frost damage as a DoT until you are freed.
