Raid Roundup: New Helya Lore Quest, Gul'dan PTR Preview, Method Interview



Gul'dan

The chain of events set in motion when Garrosh escaped to Draenor has continued, unbroken for all its twists and turns, leading to this very moment. Thwarted in Draenor, Gul'dan now stands on the precipice of achieving ultimate victory on behalf of his Legion masters. Standing atop the Nighthold, as the vortex of fel energy swirls in the skies overhead, the outcast orc warlock awaits his destiny.



Notable Gul'dan loot includes Tier 19 legs and the trinkets Breuvage des âmes, Contrat infernal, and Murmures dans les ténèbres. Defeating Mythic Gul'dan rewards and a 100% drop on Noyau de flammes dévorantes; all other difficulties (except LFR) have a small chance to drop Noyau de brasier infernal.

Overview



  • Overview: Gul'dan begins a ritual to bring his master into Azeroth, locking himself inside the active Eye of Aman'thul and summoning his demonic lieutenants. However, proximity to the active Eye of Aman'thul bestows equally powerful abilities to players, based on their role.
    After his lieutenants fall, Gul'dan leaps into the fray himself, harnessing the power of the Fel to bolster his frail frame. At 85%, 70%, and 55% health, Gul'dan again taps into the active Eye of Aman'thul, empowering his abilities.
    As his health dwindles further, Gul'dan beseeches his Legion masters for additional power, unleashing his ultimate strength while disrupting the aid that players receive from the Eye.
