PTR 3.3 - Scourgelord Tyrannus Video

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in Blizzard Games News, World of Warcraft News

Scourgelord Tyrannus is the last boss in the Icecrown Citadel: Pit of Saron dungeon, the east-wing.  He’s a Vrykul Death Knight who watches the Pit of Saron mining-operations and guards the gates to the Halls of Reflection.

Technically, it is a tank and spank fight.  Scourgelord Tyrannus will dismount his frostwyrm Rimefang, and melee the tank.  He has an arsenal of abilities that need to be constantly monitored.  First thing, all spellcasters and range DPS—yea, you healer and hunter, need to get the heck out of the mouth of the cave.  All the freed slaves will fight the bunch of undead that is coming up the cave. You will aggro them if you don’t move quick.

One player will get a debuff named Overlord’s Brand for 5 sec. During that time, that player shouldn’t cast any DPS or healing spells, because it will do damage to the tank or heal Tyrannus. Watch the messages onscreen to run away from icy clouds. These clouds slow your movement by 70% and while you stand on them you get a lot of damage over time. That’s what may kill players aside from the Hoarfrost bolt shot by Rimefang.

After killing Scourgelord Tyrannus, we get to see Sindragosa for the first time in all its glory, and if what happens next is any indication of what the fight with her will look like in the 25-man raid, it is a reason to worry. You will see in the video what I mean.  Lady Jaina Proudmoore will teleport you out of harm’s way. Curiously, doing this as a Horde player, Lady Sylvanas also teleports you away to the mouth of the cave … kinda strange. When did she learn mass-recall (teleport)?

Watch the video after the break.

SCOURGELORD TYRANNUS

  • Melee Swing: 2431 – 7023 Physical

  • Forceful Smash: 9134 – 9252 Physical damage
  • Unholy Power: A message appears onscreen: “Scourgelord Tyrannus roars and swells with dark might.”
  • Mark of Rimefang: It is a mark cast on a random player. The debuff lats 5 sec. You will see onscreen: “The frostwyrm Rimefang gazes at you and readies and icy attack.” Rimefang will begin to cast Hoarfrost.
  • Overlord’s Brand: Damage dealt also hurts Tyrannus’s target Healing done also heals Tyrannus. Lasts 6 sec.  This debuff marks a specific player who needs to stop dps and heals while this debuff is active.

RIMEFANG

  • Hoarfrost: It is an icy breath that hits by 5679 – 5834 Frost damage.  If you are standing on Icy Blast (a white cloud on the ground) when this is cast on you, you will be trapped in an ice block for 5 sec.

QUOTES

  • Rimefang, destroy this fool!

LORE DIALOGUE

ALLIANCE

Scourgelord Tyrannus: Persistant whelps!  You will not reach the entrance of my lord’s lair!  Soldiers, destroy them!

(After the gauntlet run, entering the cave triggers a series of seismic movements on the cave that cause the ceiling to drop icy chunks down)

Scourgelord Tyrannus: Rimefang, trap them within the tunnel!  BURY THEM ALIVE!

[Walking past the cave tunnel, you arrive to the platform where Scourgelord Tyrannus awaits.  It’s a trap. Behind you the scourge ambushes the freed slaves that defend the perimeter while you take care of the boss)

Scourgelord Tyrannus: Alas, brave, brave adventurers, your meddling has reached its end.  Do you hear the clatter of bone and steel coming up the tunnel behind you?  That is the sound of your impending demise.  Ha. such an amusing gesture from the rabble.  When I have finished with you, my master’s blade will feast upon your souls. Die.

Martin Victus: Brave champions, we owe you our lives, our freedom … Though it be a tiny gesture in the face of this enormous debt, I pledge that from the day forth, all will know of your deeds, and the blazing path of light you cut through the shadow of this dark citadel.

This day will stand as a testament not only to your valor, but to the fact that no foe, not even the Lich King himself, can stand when Alliance and Horde set aside their differences and—-

Lady Jaina Proudmoore: Heroes, to me!

(Lady Jaina Proudmoore teleports everyone to the mouth of the cave behind.  Sindragosa, Queen of the Frostbrood casts Frost bomb on the ground. Martin Victus and many of the freed slaves fighting with you die. A few survive and sob contemplating the dead and the dramatic experience.)

Lady Jaina Proudmoore: The Frost Queen is gone. We must keep moving – our objective is near.

[Lady Jaina Proudmoore walks toward the gates of the Halls of Reflection and teleports behind the gate]

Lady Sylvanas Windrunner: Take cover behind me!  Quickly!

(Lady Sylvanas Windrunner teleports everyone to the mouth of the cave behind.  Sindragosa, Queen of the Frostbrood casts Frost bomb on the ground. Gorkun Ironskull and many of the freed slaves fighting with you die. A few survive and sob contemplating the dead and the dramatic experience.)

Lady Sylvanas Windrunner: I thought he’d never shut up.  Alas, Sindragosa silenced that long-winded fool.  To the Halls of Reflection, champions!  Our objective is near … I can sense it.

[Lady Sylvanas Windrunner walks toward the gates of the Halls of Reflection and teleports behind the gate]
