Shade of Xavius is a shade of Xavius, the Nightmare Lord, and is the final boss located at the Heart of Dread in Darkheart Thicket.

Background

Adventure Guide

Once a powerful mage, and a councilor to Queen Azshara, Xavius forged a pact with Sargeras to enable the Legion's first invasion of Azeroth. Cursed and tormented in the wake of that defeat, Xavius now projects his true power from the Nightmare into our world, focusing his dark might to break the spirit of his old rival, Malfurion.

Overview

The Shade of Xavius, a shadowy reflection of Xavius's true power, sits in the hollowed-out core of Shaladrassil tormenting Malfurion. At 50% health, the Shade of Xavius casts Apocalyptic Nightmare in an attempt to burn Shaladrassil down around him.
