Wolfhunter
For an Oblivion realm, Lord Hircine's plane of The Hunting Grounds, a vast wilderness of forest, meadow, and mountain, is almost familiar to those Tamrielic mortals who find their way there. Almost familiar, but not quite.

Notable Items[edit]

The Great Indrik Hunt[edit]

Throughout the dungeon are three hidden Golden Indrik who, if defeated, will each grant the group a unique boon. These boons offer bonuses that can help overcome the mechanics of later boss battles.

In order to find a Golden Indrik, you first need to find three mysterious plants or items dotted around the dungeon. When near the item, you will hear a low, pulsing chime. Activating the mysterious item will spawn a Hunting Wisp. Follow the wisp and it will take you to an opening, which leads to a stealth section. Continue following the wisp and activate the synergy to reveal a Golden Indrik. Once it is defeated, your group will gain the boon.

Boon of Ferocity[edit]

The first item will either be a "Mysterious Brush" found near the village area after the Wyress Sisters or a "Mysterious Backpack" within one of the houses, which glows with a blue light. Its Indrik will grant the Boon of Ferocity:

Boon of Prowling[edit]

The second is "Mysterious Dirt" and is found in the wispmother forest area, after Aghaedh of the Solstice. Its Indrik will grant the Boon of Prowling:

  • Ignore the Movement Speed penalty while in Crouch
  • Decreases the time it takes to Crouch by 50%
  • Movement while in stealth no longer costs Stamina
  • Werewolves gain immunity to Indrik's teleportation magic and can interact with Hunting Wisps.

Boon of Hardiness[edit]

The third is shortly after Tarcyr, but before the final boss. Its Indrik will grant the Boon of Hardiness:

  • Maximum Health increased by 2500 and reduces your damage taken by 5%
  • While in Werewolf form, Maximum Health increased by 4000 and reduces your damage taken by 10%

Boss Mechanics[edit]

Wyress Sisters[edit]

The first boss of this dungeon is a group of three sisters. The primary mechanic in this fight is keeping the three sisters apart from each other and adopting a divide-and-conquer approach. Each sister is surrounded by a colored aura that grants them a unique buff. However the aura also acts as an AoE, meaning the sisters can grant each other their buffs if they are in close proximity.

Wyress Rangifer (Healer)
Wyress Rangifer serves as the healer of the group and is surrounded by a yellow aura. Her AoE buff grants increased healing to her nearby sisters.
She may also use a healing beam that tethers to her sisters and a ground AoE healing effect.


Wyress Strigidae (Archer)
Wyress Strigidae is the archer of the group and is surrounded by a blue aura. Her AoE aura debuffs players with the Silence effect, which blocks magic abilities, ultimates and synergies. Her arsenal includes a channeled Snipe attack which inflicts massive damage unless it is interrupted or blocked. She may also occasionally teleport strike a random player.


Wyress Ursus (Sword and Shield)
Wyress Ursus serves as the tank of the group and is surrounded by a green aura. Her AoE buff grants increased resistances to her nearby sisters. Her arsenal includes a channeled heavy attack which inflicts massive damage unless it is interrupted or blocked. She may also occasionally charge at a player, knocking them back and doing moderate damage to them.


When one sister is killed, an animal aspect of them will spawn with her aura still in effect. The animal aspects will gravitate towards their closest living sister and grant that sister the buff.

Aghaedh of the Solstice[edit]

Dagrund the Bulky[edit]

Tarcyr[edit]

The primary mechanic of this fight is a "hunting phase" that is interjected thoughtout the battle. This phase requires the players to break the stealth mode of the boss so it can be attacked. This phase occurs at the start of the battle and when the boss' health percentage falls to 80%, 55% and finally 20%.

When first entering the arena, a heavy fog will be flowing all around you and the boss will be completely hidden. The group is required to crouch into stealth mode in order to proceed. Failure to enter stealth mode or having your stealth interrupted by one of the roaming phantom idrik will cause you to teleported into the air, resulting in a short fall the inflicts fall damage. Failure to maintain stealth three times in a single hunting phase will result in a fatal drop.

During the hunting phase a friendly wisp will be roaming around the arena. When the wisp lands at a location, it'll emit a green AoE around it. Players must go to that wisp and activate the Synergy prompt. This must be done three times for each phase. The third synergy activation will reveal the boss so that it may be attacked as normal.

Every additional hunting phase will result in more varied threats. Stampeding Indrik, frost AoE's, fire projectiles and a frost AOE that spawns on two random players and sticks on them.

Balorgh[edit]

There are two primary mechanics in this battle. Continually moving the fight between the shallow water and small islands, and overcoming a fog phase where the boss becomes enraged.

During the battle, Balorgh's ground slam that will cause poisonous spores to spawn on the three islands, which causes AoE damage and forces the group to move the fight into the water. Balorgh will later activate his lightning attack that will electrify the water, forcing the fight onto the islands. This back-and-forth positioning will persist throughout the fight.

Later in the battle, the arena will be covered in a dark swirling fog and a random player will receive a special AoE under their feet. This AoE mark makes them the primary target of the now-enraged Balorgh. A blue pillar of light will spawn somewhere in the arena a few seconds after the initial fog appears. The targeted player must kite the boss through the blue pillar of light in order to dissipate the fog and deactivate Balorgh's enraged mode.

During the fog phase, several wolves will spawn. The longer the fog phase lasts, the more wolves will spawn. Of note is that these wolves inflict a powerful and uncleansable snare which can severely slow players down and make it more difficult to reach the blue pillar of light.
