Normal Blessed Crucible Guide
by: Tamriel Journal
– Grunt the Clever –
Grunt the Clever has an AOE Fear shout. He periodically fears everyone. You can break free from it with Stamina.
Grunt the Clever also has a massive frontal AOE melee attack. It is very easy to avoid.
– The Pack –
If you have a tank in your group, they should grab Snagg gro-Mashul. He does a whirlwind AOE attack around him. Pulling him away from the rest of the mobs is a good way to mitigate some damage.
Nusana, the fire mage, casts a pretty standard beam of fire infront of her. It deals damage to everyone on its path, so you should probably stay apart if you can do so. She doesn’t deal that much damage, though.
Dynus Aralas should be killed first – he is the healer.
Kayd at-Sal is annoying. He’s another prime target for your tank to play with.
If the fight lasts long enough, a couple of health potions appear in the middle of the arena. You can use them if you want.
Once each boss hits roughly 30% Health, they turn into werewolves. Hence “The Pack”.
– Teranya the Faceless –
Teranya does a 360 degree AOE attack around her. The animation is easy to see and you should be able to get out of it or block it in time.
Teranya the Faceless has a heavy melee attack, which the tank should block. Failing to do so will result in a knockdown and a lot of physical damage.
– The Beast Master –
– Incineration Beetles –
– Stinger –
The Stinger has one ability to look out for: he periodically targets someone and creates a poison cloud beneath them. This attack deals tons of damage, and will easily kill you if you don’t step out of it immediately.
– The Troll King –
The Troll King periodically jumps to a random players location. This deals LOTS of physical damage to everyone in the group. You don’t seem to be able to avoid it. You might be able to out-range it, but you’d have to be 30 meters or more away from him if that’s the case.
The Troll King has a quickly expanding AOE attack beneath him. He stops to stand still and starts channeling the attack. It deals a good amount of damage, but is not his most damaging ability.
The Troll King’s final ability is his frontal tremor attack. He’ll start smashing the ground and create waves of tremors infront of him. Needless to say, don’t get hit by them.
– Captain Thoran –
Captain Thoran casts Fire Runes on the ground. Don’t stand in them. Even if you did, the damage low enough for a healer to heal through.
Thoran also randomly casts purple clouds around the room which deal moderate damage to anyone in it.
When on low health, Captain Thoran spawns a Lava Atronach who generates a huge shield on Thoran. Kill the Lava Atronach and the shield disappears.
– The Lava Queen –
The Lava Queen lunges her sword into the ground, and waves of lava erupt from her into multiple directions. You’ll first only get one or two, then many at once. This can be very difficult to avoid unless you’re far away from the boss. It’s recommended to just take it easy & take some distance to her when this happens.
The Lava Queen periodically summons Lava Atronachs, who start channeling a shielding beam on the boss. The fight is all about killing the lava atronachs and staying alive.
Random lava eruptions happen all around the platform. The eruptions are marked with red circles. Just stay out of them.
The Lava Queen sometimes casts a moderate damage fire attack on distant targets.
The boss also has a heavy melee attack which needs to be blocked.
