[PTR] Ultraxion

Esta tarde-noche por fin hemos podido echar tries medio serios a los nuevos bosses del PTR, tras el fail de ayer (no recuerdo cuantas veces tuve que explicar como copiar pj's prefabricados en el reino de prueba D:).




El primer boss que pudimos probar hoy es Ultraxion. Las notas del diario de mazmorra son las siguientes:

More an abomination of dark energy than a dragon, Ultraxion has spent his short life absorbing the essence of captured nether dragons. Ultraxion is the only twilight dragon Deathwing has praised, and his arrogance is overshadowed only by the crackling energies surging through his twisted form. Loyal to his master, Ultraxion swears to bring about the fall of Wyrmrest Temple.

Stage One: Growing Instability
During the battle, Ultraxion will grow increasinly unstsable with barely-contained Twilight energies.

  • Unstable Monstrosity - Growing Twilight instability causes arcs of Twilight energy to erupt from Ultraxion's hide, inflicting 300000 Twilight damage every 6 seconds, split evenly amongst enemy players in the Twilight Realm and within yards of the target. Every minute that Ultraxion remains in combat reduces the time between arcs by 1 second, to a maximum rate of one arc per second. In addition, the instability prevents Ultraxion from dodging or parrying attacks, and allows attackers to explot weaknesses from any angle.
  • Twilight Shift - At the beginning of the battle, Ultraxion pulls all enemies with him into the Twilight Realm where they can bear the full brunt of his powerful Twilight assaults. Being pulled into the Twilight Realm grants players the Heroic Will ability.
    • Heroic Will - Steels the caster's mind to resist the forces of Twilight. Pulls the caster out of the Twilight realm for up to 5 sec, but renders them unable to attack, cast spells, or move while concentrating.
  • Fading Light - Sucks the light out of the target, drawing them into Twilight over 5-10 seconds. Upon expiration, targets in the Twilight Realm will be instantly killed. Targets in the normal realm will be pulled into the Twilight Realm, and all threat against Ultraxion will be reset. Additionally, no threat will be generated for 10 sec.
  • Hour of Twilight - The Hour of Twilight falls upon Ultraxion's foes. Enemies caught within the Twilight Realm take 300000 unresistable Twilight damage. Enemies within the normal realm are instantly pulled back into the Twilight Realm. If two enemies are not hit by Hour of Twilight, the Aspects will take the full brunt of the attack, disrupting the shield protecting the Aspects and heralding the end of all life on Azeroth.
    • Looming Darkness - When struck by Hour of Twilight, powerful waves of Twilight energy course through the victim, rendering them more susceptible to the harmful effects of Hour of Twilight. Additional damage taken by Hour of Twilight will instantly kill the target.
  • Twilight Burst - When no targets are within range of his powerful claws, Ultraxion expels a powerful burst of Twilight energy, inflicting 75000 unresistable Twilight damage and increasing magical damage taken by 50% for 6 sec. Stacks up to 100 times.
  • Twilight Eruption - After 6 minutes have passed, Ultraxion's instability reaches uncontainable levels, erupting outwards as a massive explosion that destroys all nearby foes and Ultraxion himself.
En este boss contaremos con la colaboración de ciertos héroes de renombre:


Alexstrasza

  • Gift of Life - Alexstrasza creates a crystal of pure life energy. Activating the crystal imbues one healer with the essence of life itself, increasing healing done by 100% for the duration of the battle. The crystal has one charge. Only one buff granted by Alexstrasza, Ysera, or Kalecgos can be present on a player at any time.
Ysera
  • Essence of Dreams - Ysera creates a crystal of dream energy. Activating the crystal imbues one healer with the power of dreams, which causes all healing done to be duplicated and distributed evenly amongst all friendly targets within yards for the remainder of the battle. The crystal has one charge. Only one buff granted by Alexstrasza, Ysera, or Kalecgos can be present on a player at any time.
Kalecgos
  • Source of Magic - Kalecgos creates a crystal of amplified arcane energy. Activating the crystal imbues one healer with the essence of magic, reducing the mana cost of all spells by 75% and increasing spell haste by 100% for the remainder of the battle. The crystal has one charge. Only one buff granted by Alexstrasza, Ysera, or Kalecgos can be present on a player at any time.
Nozdormu
  • Timeloop - Nozdormu captures all players within a finite timeloop. Any attack which would otherwise kill the player will instead bring them to 100% of maximum health and remove the Timeloop.
Thrall
  • Last Defender of Azeroth - Thrall, now the Earth-Warder of Azeroth, blesses all tanks with the immovable strength of the ancient stones of the world. Reduces defensive cooldowns by 50% and increases defensive ability durations by 100%.


Este boss, aunque con una estrategia bastante sencilla, es muy exigente en DPS y healing. Requiere también cierta coordinación entre los miembros de la raid.

Ultraxión, según comenzamos el combate, nos pone el debuff de Unstable Monstruosity, que hace que nos pegue 300.000 de daño repartido entre toda la raid cada 6 segundos. La particularidad es que cada minuto que pasa, el boss se vuelve más inestable, reduciendo el intervalo en que castea dicha hablidad en 1 segundo.

El boss tiene 2 fases, la de Twilight, y la del "reino de luz". Según pulleamos, se nos abrirá un botón de acción especial como el de la imagen, llamado Heroic Will. Sirve para cambiar entre ambas fases. La particularidad es que el cambio de fase solo dura 5 segundos, en los que, además, estaremos stuneados y no podremos hacer nada.

Usaremos este cambio de fase en las siguientes dos ocasiones:
  • Cuando tenemos Fading Light, un debuff que aparece en un miembro random de la raid. Cuando pasen unos 2-3 segundos con este debuff, cambiaremos de fase puesto que así evitaremos morir.
  • Cuando el boss castea Hour of Twilight, todos salvo 1 persona (uno de los tanks, que usará CD's para sobrevivir) cambiarán de fase.
