Bosses

 

Blightbone

The corpulent mass of rotting flesh known as Blightbone was lovingly constructed by Surgeon Stitchflesh. Now the abomination is eager to be unleashed on the Temple of Courage.

He walks around the platform near the beginning of the dungeon, first we have to clean up with trash creatures, because some mechanics will require free space and only then start with the boss.

 

Heaving Retch – Blightbone hurls a toxic spew at all players in a cone in front of him.

Carrion Worm – Carrion Worms hunger for blood, searching out random players to feast upon. (In Mythic difficulty, Carrion Worms now erupt into a pool of Fetid Gas upon dying).
