The 29th October is the day that Antares will make their very first attempt through the Upper Blackrock Spire. We will face new bosses with new difficulties and we will have our first raid after 3 long years. In order to make this first UBRS raid a succesful raid, we need almost the entire roster of Antares to sign up for the raid!
To the right of this post, you'll see the raid calender and at wednesday you'll see the UBRS "event" that you can click on. Afterwards, make sure to sign up and chose your role(DPS,Tank,Healer).
If you're interested in the encounters we're going to face and defeat, read on! I'll make sure that you'll get to know each of the bosses in UBRS.
1. Boss - Pyroguard Emberseer
A powerful fire elemental held captive in the upper portions of Blackrock Spire, Pyroguard Emberseer is held prisoner by several warlocks. However, when the warlocks are broken from their trance and destroyed, Emberseer will break free and attempt to destroy anything near him. Passage to the rest of the spire is only allowed when Emberseer is eliminated.
2. Boss - Solakar Flamewreath
Solakar Flamewreath is spawned at the end of the "Father Flame" event in the Upper Blackrock Spire Rookery. The "Father Flame" event can be trouble for the unprepared and many groups choose to skip it. The event that spawns him begins by looting the pillar in the left side of the Rookery, surrounded by eggs and elite dragonkin.
3. Boss - Jed Runewatcher
Jed Runewatcher is a rare spawn orc in Upper Blackrock Spire. He wanders in the room of Goraluk Anvilcrack. It is possible to use the /target command from the entrance of Blackrock Spire to check whether he is spawned.
He's a member of the Blackhand Legion.
4. Boss - Goraluk Anvilcrack
<Blackhand Legion Armorsmith> is a named Blackrock orc found in Upper Blackrock Spire. His loot has a blacksmithing theme.
5. Boss - Gyth
Gyth is a large Chromatic drake who serves as Rend Blackhand's personal mount.
6. Boss - Rend Blackhand
Rend Blackhand is the ruler of the Dark Horde and is considered to be a great threat to Thrall's mastery of the Horde. Rend is the bloodthirsty son of the former Warchief of the Horde, Blackhand the Destroyer. He believes that he is the rightful Warchief of the Horde due to lineage, and seeks to overthrow Thrall. To this end, he has allied the forces of the Dark Horde with Nefarian. The two have used their combined resources to re-create the chromatic dragonflight, which they hope to unleash upon the world once again. His mount is a massive chromatic drake named Gyth.
7. Boss - The Beast
The Beast appears to be a Core Hound that has been captured by the forces of Nefarian for use in his breeding experiments. (Experiments on other core hounds could account for the creation of Chromaggus, a core hound-like dragonkin who is the second-to-last boss found in Blackwing Lair.)
At some point before he is encountered by a party, the Beast had swallowed Finkle Einhorn, a gnomish adventurer who has survived in the Beast's stomach for an unspecified period of time. Skinning The Beast will free Finkle.
8. Boss - Lord Valthalak
Lord Valthalak is a Drakonid boss summoned in Upper Blackrock Spire by a Brazier of Beckoning. Strangely, he is categorized as a humanoid, and not as a dragonkin like other drakonids. He is the last boss in the Dungeon Set 2 quest line.
9. Boss and Final Boss - General Drakkisath
General Drakkisath is the dragonspawn ruler of the armies of Nefarian, leader of the black dragonflight. From the pinnacle of Blackrock Spire, he oversees his forces in their war to drive out the Dark Iron dwarves from the bowels of the mountain.
