Sartharion seems like a doable fight, so I went to the Obsidian Sanctum and tried my luck. The thrash was not easy to clear, but I was able to clear it all inclusive Tenebron and Vesperon. Sadly the third Miniboss Shadron forces you to go into the Twilight Realm and if you try that solo he will despawn instantly. I had to bring a friend, Zlínka, to kill the guardian inside the Twilight Realm.
With his lieutenants defeated it was time to head for Sartharion. Wildly swinging axes, trusty wolves at my side and with heroism I rushed towards the Onyx Guardian.
The Onyx Guardian is in charge of Guardin eggs of the Black Dragonflight inside the Obsidian Sanctum. He has 3 Lieutenants at his side, which in this case I killed first.
- Cleave – Inflicts 35% weapon damage on the target and chains to up to 9 players in proximity.
- Flame Breath – Inflicts 8,750 to 11,250 Fire damage to all enemies in front of the caster.
- Tail Lash – Inflicts 3,063 to 3,937 Fire damage to enemies standing behind Sartharion and stuns them for 2 seconds.
- Wall of Flame – Walls of Lava build at the sides and flood the area surrounding Sartharion.
In a Nutshell
The fight starts out fairly easy with not that much incoming damage. Sartharion hits for 9500-10000 and his breath for around 8000. His attack speed isn’t very high and as long as no Lava Blazes spawn there won’t be any issues. Eventually more and more Lava Blazes will spawn and you should try to kill some of them off, hopefulyl they won’t run for your wolves and come right for you. Try to not have them hit by the Lava Walls that come from time to time, since that will make them big and hit quite hard.
Pesonally I used Heroism late in the fight, when my health began to drop beyond what was self healable. In the end I almost got overrun by Lava Blazes, but it seems like the better decision to focus on the boss than wasting time to kill them off.
