Second boss of Auchindoun: Mana Tombs. He looks like he's going to be frost resistant/immune, but don't worry - he's not. His special abilities include Earthquake(area effect - physical damage) and Crystal Prison(single target), both of which will immobilize and damage you.
VERY EASY FIGHT... must easier than giant voidie. Sadowmonkey - Aggammagan
warrior - priest - lock (me) - hunter - rogue.
Had warrior Charge and stand back to the wall so the range dps/healers were at a side of him.
the Crystal Prision takes away about 10% heath every second for like 4 seconds (not dispellable)
the Earthquake AoE does not go far at all. max range > him
warrior picks up aggro. 3-4 sunders we waited
Simply apply moderate DPS. Watch out for reflective shield. and ur done!
make shure u bring a miner with you. you can skin him for some hella nice gems!!
The range on his earthquake is about 35 yards, so if you have an increased range talent, you can avoid it the entire fight.
His earthquake ability lasts for 2 seconds, and does somewhere around 800ish per second (I had no resist gear on at the time). You are stunned for the two seconds. I didn't ever get hit by the other ability, so I can't say how much that did.
No new abilities but hits for approx. 2k on a tank. Ranged DPS saves mana for the healers because they don't get damage from earthquake.
Compared to other heroic bosses, this guy is cake. Just keep your MT topped off.
Anyone knows how much mining skill needed to mine him?
And if you're mage then simply Blink out of his earthquake. Very simple
It seems that if you roll on loot you CANNOT loot him. This has happened to me once so far, and we are about to down him without rolling on loot so I will update after we do.
EDIT: well the second kill on him someone rolled greed on accident... and we could still mine him so IDK.... Guess you can roll.
From mining him i get 3xLesser Planar Essence's.Mining 375.
For the Mining part.. I can confirm that Spirit Shards will be held on the boss even your side is not controlling the Bone Waste. Hence, no mining on this boss for you :>
His AOE is a 35 yard radius, as a mage i just sit at max range and spam fireball since it has the longest range, so basically as a caster just stand at max range of the target and this fight is cake with only the meele getting hit by the AOE
I got 4 lesser planar essences from mining him today, which is not listed on the mining tab.
i got 3 lesser planar essences, but thats not the issue.
we (mage, rogue, enh shammy (me ^^), holy priesty, feral dr00d) did this on heroic difficulty yesterday.
he was extremly easy compared to other bosses. tank and spank. no big deal.
Hes easy to down in 5 ppl. We were 1 tank, hunter(ranged dps), rogue (was only throwing this time) and 2 priests(one well geared one was weaker). Our strategy was that the tank was tanking(lol) and the stronger priest was healing only him. The other priest was far behind. Me hunter and the rogue were ranged DPSing and when we got hurt were healed by the off priest. The priest was supposed to keep the main priest alive from earthquakes and such. Downed easily this way. The main thing about him is to keep one healer out of his spells' range
Possible solo as 70 druid :)
only selfbuffed - no pots an stuff..
I can solo him as a 70 feral druid.
It takes 2 minutes to get in and 2 minutes to get out. The fight takes me 4 minutes.
This may be a viable way to get spirit shards fast while solo or to help someone to get them.
Just mined him, got 6 adamantite ore, 5 lesser planar essence, 1 deep peridot, 1 flame spessarite
I didn't see if it was yellow or orange or whatever skill-wise.
I'm 375 mining when i mined him fyi.
About mining this guy:
He will not show "Minable" On the tool tip, or any indication what so ever.
If he's not minable to you, make sure you tell -everyone- in your party to get all loot off of him, this includes shards if you control the towers.
After ALL the loot is looted from him, THEN he becomes minable.
After a couple parties, everyone i've partied with was like "I dunno what you're talking about, you can't mine him" and then when they clean it off i do.Thought i'd share this.
Does he ever crushing blow?
when u mine this guy it dropped 3 lesser plannar essence idk if thats rare or somthing but he surley did drop that
For you folks that like to solo everything, this boss will be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to solo, even at level 80 especially for classes that cannot heal themselves. His crystal prison never misses and does percentage damage (meaning it will hurt for quite a bit no matter how much health you have) and he uses it often. As a level 80 prot warrior, I popped every trick, trinket and CD I had and still wound up dead before getting him to 25% health.
I also managed to kill Tavarok at level 80, as a blood/frost tanking specced Death Knight.
It was not easy. Even with vampiric blood, rune tap, bloodworms, and death strikes, I couldn't heal myself fast enough to keep up with the -50% health. I ended up using Army of the Dead and Raise Dead as cannon fodder for his Crystal Prisons and killed him as quickly as I could.
Ended the fight with 5k health and no cooldowns left in full 10-Naxx tanking gear.
Those of you looking to solo this guy for achievements should consider
Lesser Invisibility Potion
. I wasn't able to bring him down, and I couldn't get around him without aggroing, but these worked like a charm.
just soloed him (normal mode) as demo/destro lok. (only full hc gear) ended with ~70% hp , felguard at 30%
was quite easy - didnt use pvp trinket (dunno if it works to break the stun)
just used teleporter (out of los) ~10s after quake to make him walk after me(alrd got aggro due to burst at that time) so dots and pets had more time to do dmg, got 1x prisoned (first), 2. and 3. prison went to pet. He died right after 3. .
ps. he does arcing smash in normal mode too, combat log confirms.
pps. works like a charm : port outside los on 1. incoming prison after the earthquake, dont burst at beginning
then keep dots up, heal pet, if u get prisoned 2. time trinket it (works), then nuke down - stay at max range, >35 (36 if range talented)
Tried soloing as a prot pally. Failed. Came back in holy spec and absolutely tore him up. Just remember to keep your sacred shield up.
Paladins who want to solo this should try to pop Divine Shield right before Crystaline Prison, it worked for me as a Retribution paladin. Also try to use those Art of War procs for instant FoL's to keep yourself topped, just to be sure.
I like to farm this boss with my retribution paly
I used seal of light for the whole fight. Healed whenever Art of War activated so that my health is always more than 80% and just nuked until he died :)
He usually drops Adamantite Ore (6-8) , 3-6 Lesser Planar Essence and some gems
They sell pretty good on the AH :) , Especially if you are a Jewelcrafter like me-
When you prospect the adamantite , you recieve 1 Adamantite Powder for every prospect and some gems.
The dust costs bout 300g per stack on Al'Akir , dunno bout the other realms tho
For 80 warriors trying to solo him, if you are a tank, his Crystal Prison will probably kill you, since it essentially uses your own health pool against you. I managed to solo him once in my tanking spec, but he nearly killed me. I tried it again in Arms spec, and it went much more smoothly because I was able to take him out so quickly. Basically, if you're trying to run someone through this dungeon, try to fight this boss in your dps spec instead of tanking spec and gear.
I like to call this guy the Egochecker.
He is impossible on many classes to solo, and even then, it proves to be a chore. Being stunned for five seconds, and losing 50% of your max HP at the same time is a bit too much.
Killed him as an 80 feral druid tank, not TOO hard once you figure out how to do it.
Before you start the fight, get into cat form and use the group behind him to get Savage Roar up. Before it fades, get Rejuv and Regrowth up, get back into cat form and engage him. Pop berserk immediately, and go all-out on him until the first crystal prison. Now, switch into bear form and use Frenzied Regeneration to gain back most or all of the health you just lost. At this point, you'll probably kill him before Frenzied Regeneration wears off. If not, switch back into cat form and kill him quickly.
Rinse and repeat until you have 4 Golden Draenite.
Also failed miserably on Heroic mode as prot pala with decent gear who solos Karazhan. Althou at one try I got him to 8K when I had 10K, so I didn't use bubble and regretted later.
I definitely can see holy being superior spec for this bastard.
Edit: Now I one-shot him every day. I have Sacred Shield up all the times Vengeance seal and judging Light. Holy Wrath at the start, use damage absorb trinket+Divine Guardian before first Prison and Bubble before the second. Heal myself up after third and he'll be dead before he can cast 4th prison. LoH is still there if I screw something up.
Perhaps the best advise here is to not go in as a tank. I also tried him some time later after my first post as fury. Nailed it, no sweat.
I was just able to solo this as a 80 combat rogue. The way I did it was to stealth past him, then do the Escort quest with the Consortium guy. When we got back to him, he aggroed of course, but with the help of a Consortium elite fighting with me, & popping Recuperate as often as I could to get my health back, I was able to kill him. Not easy, but doable.
Solo-ed several times on heroic at 85 as a sub rogue while grinding Consortium rep, died once due to not paying enough attention. Shadowstep in, open with Garrotte, pop Recuperate and dodge like hell. Evasion and Feint help, Combat Readiness does not. You'll have to eat everything he throws at you so blow whatever cooldowns you need to. I don't know if Cloak of Shadows's immunity can keep Crystal Prison off you, though. (By comparison, the end boss in this dungeon can be beaten by keeping Recuperate up and mashing Fan of Knives.)
My solo-ing spec looks a bit like
I'm sure that almost any class can solo him now, but even so, the health pools are huge in Cataclysm and he's still doing % based damage. Good luck.
Soloed this as a level 64 BM hunter with the mending glyph and a bear tank. Here's what I did:
First, I died three times. Then:
I realized that the crystal prison can only be avoided through LoS. Opposite Tavarok there are some parts of the wall that stick out a bit. I chose the one opposite him and to his left. I sent my bear in and tanked Tavarok in place, I stayed out of LoS, and only came out to mend. Now, there is no cast time for crystal prison, so I still got caught by it twice--and healed up with a potion. If at all possible, and this will be easier at higher levels, only come out to mend pet when your pet has crystal prison on. When he does, fire off a serpent sting, maybe an immo trap, and go to town until the prison fades. Refresh mend pet, and hide behind your wall again. Took a couple tries, because my pet died early, so I just feigned death and started over again.

The drop rate for lightning rod pauldrons has to be more than 11%. I've run mana tombs dugeon 10 times now trying to get shaarde the greater (sword) and out of those 10 times tavarok dropped lighting rod pauldrons 9 times. Im still trying to get the sword.
Watch out for his "Crystal Prison" attack. It ticks HARD, regardless of your level. At Level 90, it was ticking for 42k per second.
