Cathedral of Eternal Night – Legion Dungeon Preview

Belle Legion: Dungeon Previews 0 Comments

With Patch 7.2 there will be a new dungeon added to the mix. This dungeon is called Cathedral of Eternal Night and will be a 5 man dungeon with 4 bosses in total. I went though the dungeon on PTR to get a feel for the bosses and the mechanics and I have to say I was pretty pleased with it and I am excited to try it on Mythic and Mythic+.

Thrashbite the Scornful
  • Overview

    Thrashbite the Scornful favors impercise, sweeping attacks with little regard for his surroundings. Trick him into going toe to toe with something thicker than himself, though, and he just might lose his balance.

  • Heave Cudgel – Thrashbite hurls his mighty cudgel around the outer ring of the library, dealing 8000000 Physical damage to all players in its path.
Domatrax
  • Overview

    Upon reaching 90% and 50% health, the Fel Lord opens up additional portals to allow greater numbers of the Legion’s soldiers to pour into the tomb.
    The Aegis of Aggramar provides protection against the Legion’s attacks, but if drained of all its energy, this aura will fall.

                     On Mythic difficulty, Domatrax summons additional demons at 33% health. Also, if the Fel Portal Guardians are not destroyed within a specific time, an overfiend emerges.

    • Damage Dealers
      • Defeat Hellblaze Feasters before they can drain energy from the Aegis of Aggramar. Destroy Fel Portal Guardians to stop the flow of demons. Destroy Fel Portal Guardians before they can complete [Approaching Doom].
    • Healers
      • The Aegis’ protection aura reduces damage from [Choatic Energy].
    • Tanks
      • Turn the Fel Lord away from the party and the Aegis to avoid having them get hit with [Felsoul Cleave].
    • Domatrax – This Fel Lord leads the onslaught against the Aegis of Aggramar.
    • Felsoul Cleave – Inflicts 1140000 to 1260000 Fire damage to enemies within 20 yards in a cone in front of the caster, and drains the Aegis of Aggramar by 50%.
    • Chaotic Energy – Chaotic energies arc from the caster, inflicting 2850000 to 3150000 Fire damage to all enemies.
    • Fel Portal Guardian – Defeat these guardians to close their portals and prevent additional demons from entering the battle.
    • Approaching Doom – Something large approaches the portal. If the guardian is not destroyed before it arrives, it will emerge from the nether.
    • Searing Overfiend
      • Searing Presence – Heat radiates from the fiend, inflicting 285000 to 315000 Fire damage every 3 sec.
        Aegis of Aggramar – The Aegis of Aggramar protects all allies within its radius by reducing damage received by 75% but also reduces damage inflicted by 75% and healing done by 75%.
    • Getting hit by Felsoul Cleave or standing within the Aegis’ protection drains the shield over time.
Mephistroth
  • Overview

    Mephistroth uses shadow magic to attack the party until he reaches 100% energy. Once his energy is full, Mephistroth fades away and strikes at the heroes from the shadows. During this, Illidan must be protected with the Aegis of Aggramar long enough for him to pull the dreadlord back into the light.
    On Mythic difficulty, fel bats fly in through the windows during Shadow Fade and assault the heroes with Fel Blaze.

  • Damage Dealers
    • Move away from your allies when targeted by [Demonic Upheaval].
      Defeat Shadows of Mephistroth during [Shadow Fade].

    • Allies take increasing damage from [Creeping Shadows] while Mephistroth is hidden.
  • Tanks
    • [Carrion Swarm] is a heavy attack that needs to be faced away from the party.
    • During [Shadow Fade], face the Aegis of Agrammar towards Shadows Orbs to protect Illidan.
  • Aegis of Aggramar – Face the Aegis of Agrammar towards Shadows of Mephistroth to protect Illidan from Shadow Blast.

I did a video of a 3 man Heroic of this dungeon in PTR. It was pretty rough for only 3 people but we got it done.
