Every time you deal enough damage to lower his health by 25% (i.e. - 75%, 50%, 25%), he will become immune to damage and "morph" (for lack of a better word) into a circle of lightning.
Make that PIE of lightning. The reason I say this is because there's one little "slice" of his lightning pie that you may stand in and avoid the lightning damage.
Alternatively, if you have enough time, you can run to the alcoves to the right or left of his platform and wait out the ability there.
I found this to be a extremely fun fight. Hope this helps! :D
This guy has been changed recently. Everytime he casts Disperse, run away from him. The adds he summon are invulnerable but do an annoying aoe.
Basically my group tanks him where he starts, then run down the stairs. After about 50 yards, the sparks will go back to where Ionar disappeared and he will reform himself. I believe this also has an aggro wipe component.
Cord of Swirling Winds
This boss has two phases:
In phase 1 stay spread to reduce damage from
and dodge incoming
Second phase begings when its shatters into lightning orbs by casting
. These orbs are immune dmg and does quite heavy damage to anyone close to them. They move slowly so run away from them until they disappear which happens when they travel a certain distance. (50 yards sound correct)
As far as I can tell, the boss does not drop aggro when phase1 starts again.
One thing to pay attention is not to run to different sides when phase2 begins as it may cause lack of healing and result in deaths. Also the healer must return back fast after phase2 or will risk losing the tank.
Might mention that he is a Lightning Revenant, that are in a sense minor elementals that served as foot soldiers for the Old Gods.
After the war between the Titans and the Old Gods, the revenants were banished to the Elemental Plane, however some were later summoned back to the Mortal Plane by various wizards.
They are undead creatures that has no relation with The Scourge and they live only for hatred and death.
Most famous of the revenants is the Guardian of Frostmourne who guarded the cursed runeblade Frostmourne and warned Arthas not to draw the blade from the pedestal.
Just killed him.
When he blows he becomes "electric spiders" .. just run away from them and he will spawn back into normal.
And stay away from electric ball he shots, it does 2.1k damage.
Otherwise just nuke!
mmm...not sure what happened but after the first split he just kind of..dissapeared for a bit..no sparks..
Lightning is like VR's blasts
Static overload is like Vashj's static overload
Disperse is like Kael's little orbs during Gravity Lapse.
There is no aggro wipe between phases, and DoTs still tic on him and do damage during disperse.
While the smaller air elementals before Ionar are immune to nature damage, Ionar himself is
immune to nature damage.
heh, hes a loner
if you got a shammy have him/her put down stoneclaw totem if timed right and with right placement the little orbs from disperse will harmlessly attack it
This boss can be two manned even on heroic with a decent Tank/Healer. So even if the rest of the grp dies may as well try and ride it out. Just make sure the healer avoids ball lightning!
There is 2 main things in this boss:
Run away when he splits into lightning mobs, because they are quite slow and unkillable
When you get Static Overload (DOT) get away from group, because it does AOE damage to your party mates
I found a good method, when he disperses, is to have the DPS run down the stairs and out of the way while the Tank and Healer run in circles to grab him when he gets back up.
What I find funny about this boss is his death quote "master... you have... guests". Not very funny on its own but sounds like hiss (the python) from jungle book :)
Hot-fixed after patch 3.3:
Ionar, in the Halls of Lightning, will now only disperse once during the course of the fight.
For those of you that like to push yourself, or just amuse yourselves by beating an old "used to be mildly difficult boss" to smithereens, it is possible to beat him before he disperses. I did it on a ilvl 376 DW frost DK with all CDs popped. Open with Horn of Winter, then Pillar of Frost, AotD, and then Minion (so he gets Pillar's buffs). It's close, but it certainly can be done.
By far the toughest boss in HOL to solo. Loken is a breeze beside him. I average 1 death per 1 defeat on this one as a 85 prot warrior ( not top tier geared though)
Found out today it's possible to kill him as he disperses, if this happens the Spark of Ionar npc's he summons will never un-summon and
you for the rest of the dungeon.
这个 NPC 能在这些地区找到：
—艾欧纳尔对玩家注入能量，在10 sec内对其造成自然伤害并周期性地电击其附近的盟友，造成自然伤害。在10 sec后，发生一次电流爆炸，对8码范围内的所有玩家造成额外的自然伤害并将他们击退。
