Xal-Nur the Slaver

Xal-Nur the Slaver is a monstrous Argonian found in the Ruins of Mazzatun. Xal-Nur becomes invulnerable when he summons swamp spice, and a group member will need to walk into the green AoE circle and bring the spice debuff to a geyser in order to damage him again.

The behemoth is resurrected during the final battle against Tree-Minder Na-Kesh, who uses amber plasm to summon a Phantom of Xal-Nur.

Skills and Abilities[edit]

Basic advice: stay out of his aoes. Roll away from him when he smashes the ground with his fists. The tank should be the only one targeted by his conal shout, that damage must be mitigated by any means necessary.

Monstrous Blitz
When Xal-Nur blitzes, he charges with an unrelenting focus. His blitz can be blocked by those brave enough to step in the way.
Swamp Spice
The on-screen tell for this reads, The aroma of Swamp Spice invades the arena! At certain health intervals (75%, 50% and 25%), Xal-Nur will spit Swamp Spice. Adds are attracted to the smell of swamp spice, and you must cleanse it. This can be done by one player running into the spice's green AoE, then finding a geyser to cleanse it in. One geyser is behind where Xal-Nur stands when idle (exit-side), and the other is to the right of the entrance door. Being drenched in Swamp Spice for too long is very dangerous. If you can't reach a cleansing geyser, it's best to shake it off. The spice will slow you. Have a speed-boosting ability on your bar if you're cleansing the spice, and have the healer keep a close eye on the spice runner's health. If you're being overwhelmed by adds, kill one of the Argonian Wranglers holding the chained wamasu. They've been mistreated by the Xit-Xaht, so if you're struggling, free them and watch them pick off the adds. Keep in mind that Xal-Nur will eventually kill the freed wamasu. Xal-Nur is invulnerable during Swamp Spice phase, and becomes enraged, causing his to attacks deal more damage.
Furious Roar
Xal-Nur will roar angrily after the Swamp Spice is cleansed, dealing damage to everyone in the arena. This must be healed through.
Barbarous Bite
Xal-Nur bites his target. Applies a bleeding DoT.
Brutal Bellow
Xal-Nur roars, dealing damage in front of him in a conal radius.
Slaver Slam
Xal-Nur slams both of his fists on the ground, dealing immense physical damage.
