Archmage Sol is the penultimate boss of the Everbloom.

Background

Adventure Guide

Archmage Sol was among the last holdouts of the Kirin Tor expedition at Violet Bluff, but ultimately succumbed to spores that took root in her brain. Perhaps a portion of her humanity remains buried deep within, but she now lives as a prisoner in her own body.

Overview

Archmage Sol casts spells from one school at a time, starting with Fire, then Frost, and finally Arcane. She periodically attempts to cast Parasitic Growth; interrupting that spell will cause her to shift to using a new magic school.

Abilities

  • Inv misc herb whispervine.png  Parasitic Growth Interruptible — The spores inside Archmage Sol's brain are trying to take further control. If successful, Archmage Sol's casting speed and damage dealt will be increased by 50%. In Heroic difficulty, when Archmage Sol switches magic schools, the lingering effects from her prior school will remain.
    • Spore Image Heroic Difficulty — Spore Images form every time Archmage Sol's cast of Parasitic Growth is interrupted and will continue to use the basic magic spell Archmage Sol had been casting. These images target enemies at random.
      • Spell fire fireball02.png  Fireball Interruptible — The caster hurls a ball of fire at the target, inflicting Fire damage. Victims burn for additional Fire damage for 9 sec. This effect stacks up to 3 times.
      • Spell frost frostbolt02.png  Frostbolt Interruptible — The caster hurls a bolt of Frost at the target, inflicting Frost damage. Victims of this attacked have their movement speed slowed by 20% for 10 sec. This effect stacks up to 3 times.
  • Ability creature poison 04.png  Parasitic Injection Important — Every time the caster changes their magical school focus, they are injected by the parasites that have taken root in their brain. Each stack of Parasitic Injection increases the damage the caster deals by 25%.

Fire Magic

  • Spell fire fireball02.png  Fireball Interruptible — The caster hurls a ball of fire at the target, inflicting Fire damage.
  • Spell fire ragnaros molteninferno.png  Firebloom Deadly — The caster fires off flames that will detonate all nearby Firebloom seeds in rapid succession. When the Firebloom detonates, it creates a rapidly expanding ring of Fire that inflicts Fire damage to all enemies caught in its path who fail to jump over it.

Frost Magic

  • Spell frost frostbolt02.png  Frostbolt Interruptible — The caster hurls a bolt of frost at the target, inflicting Frost damage.
  • Spell frost icestorm.png  Frozen Rain Deadly — Creates a cloud of Frozen Rain that pelts victims below it, inflicting Frost damage.

Arcane Magic

  • Spell nature wispsplode.png  Arcane Burst Interruptible — The caster sends a blast of arcane energy at the target, inflicting Arcane damage.
  • Ability mage arcanebarrage.png  Arcane Blossom Deadly — The caster fires a multitude of Arcane Missiles in all directions. Players caught in the path of these missiles suffer Arcane damage.

Strategy

A fairly simple "breather" fight before the intense Yalnu.

In her fire phase, she will summon orange plants. Get some distance from these. When they explode into rings of fire, jump over the rings.

In her frost phase, avoid the moving blizzard.

In the arcane phase, she will spam a huge arcane explosion. Burn her down while the healer heals through it.
