Tier 1

Objective: Defeat Bolon Yokte’ K’uh

Before you enter the arena, decide whether you want to do the normal version or the Nightmare version. You can toggle the Nightmare mode by using the Offering altar nearby. It’s off by default. Beware that this dungeon has a 12 hour cooldown, regardless of which mode you choose.

If your build and gear are very decent, you should be able to do the normal version alone with ease, however, the encounter is intended for a full group of 5 players. You can easily do it alone with this leech healing build for instance.

To get the Down for the Count achievement, you must complete this encounter in Nightmare mode. It’s recommended that you have a full group for Nightmare mode.


Once you’re ready, approach the Echo of the Servant of the Nine Nights to begin the fight. It will die pretty fast.


After that, note that are two altars in the arena. One of the left side and one on the right side. The left one will light up and adds will spawn and run towards it. You must prevent them from reaching it. With each enemy that gets to the altar, you will take damage and your maximum health will be permanently lowered for the rest of the encounter, thus it is vital to stop them!

To get the achievement Busted Bones, you must get 10 stacks of the Skull Collector debuff by letting adds reach the lit altars. Be careful when doing this. You’ll want a good healer, and Cold Blooded is nice to have to mitigate some of the damage.


After that, Bolon Yokte’ K’uh himself will come within reach.


At some points during the encounter, lots of AoEs will spawn all over the ground. Make sure to avoid them.


After dealing a lot of damage to Bolon Yokte’ K’uh, he will put up a full damage absorption barrier. An add called Echo of the Servant of the Seven Deaths will spawn in one of the corners, on the stairs. It will keep spawning additional undead adds until you attack it. Defeat this add to make Bolon Yokte’ K’uh remove his absorption barrier.

This will happen three times during the encounter. The last time, two servants will spawn instead of one; one in each corner.


At some point during the encounter, usually after the second Servant has been killed, a friendly Quetzal bird will appear and fly into the arena.

To get the Unidentified Flying Objective achievement, heal the Quetzal bird.
The End of Days #5 lore piece will spawn if you heal the Quetzal bird. Yellow particles will fly from the Quetzal bird to the lore when it gets close to it, revealing it.


Continue fighting through the aforementioned mechanics until you successfully defeat Bolon Yokte’ K’uh.


Tier 2
