Encounter[edit | edit source]

On your way to the final boss you need to fight a large number of enemies including the mid-way Boss, Jareth Grim. The end boss is Malus Blackdagger. It is a 4-7 minute long fight depending on the damage of your group. Malus' combat will cycle through a number of abilities and then repeat. They include the following:

  • Kick: Malus kicks the targeted party member pushing them back 20 feet and doing 300 - 400 damage. Malus will follow this up with a teleport to the target.
  • Slashing Frenzy: This is the most dangerous ability Malus does. He swings his swords in an AOE arc of 180 degrees in front of him dealing 300 - 1500 damage to anyone in the arc. Get out of the red area when you see it or block through it.

Malus will summon help at around 75% health. This includes one Elite and two Minion enemies.
