Dazar’alor Jadefire Masters
Here is one of the simplest Dazar’alor raid bosses as it’s easy to control his Energy bar. Here are some tips for you. At boss’s 30 Energy level feel free to deal Living bombs to weaken his power. At 60 Energy concentrate on the maze: cross it and take care of all the rest of the rad did the same. Finally, level 100 – use all DPS power you have to make boss give up by reaching 0 in his Energy bar.
Here is the first moment that makes WoW Battle for Dazar’alor so special and unusual, especially for the new players. All races of Horde army transforms into the races of Alliance. This transformation corresponds to the racial they all have.
