Final Boss



Cyanigosa is a powerful blue dragon located in the Violet Hold. She has been sent there by Malygos as the supreme commander of the invading forces to release the prisoners and enter Dalaran itself. She is the final boss encountered in this instance.

Cyanigosa is a "memory" in the fight against Argent Confessor Paletress in the Trial of the Champion encounter of the Crusaders' Coliseum.

Adventure Guide

Cyanigosa in her elf form.

Malygos chose Cyanigosa to execute his machinations because of her unquestionable loyalty. She did not flinch when her master withdrew into madness; she did not falter when he commandeered Azeroth's ley lines; and she will not fail to eradicate all who defy him.


  • Spell arcane blast.png  Uncontrollable Energy Magic Effect — Cyanigosa releases a torrent of Arcane energy, inflicting Arcane damage to all players in front of her. In addition, any player hit by Uncontrollable Energy take additional Arcane damage every 3 sec. for 15 sec.
  • Inv misc monsterscales 05.png  Tail Sweep — Cyanigosa swings her tail, inflicting Physical damage to all players in a cone behind her, interrupting their spell casting.
  • Spell frost icestorm.png  Blizzard — Cyanigosa calls down a blizzard that lasts 8 sec., inflicting Frost damage every 2 sec. and slowing the movement speed of all players in a selected area by 40%.
  • Spell arcane portalironforge.png  Arcane Vacuum — Cyanigosa summons all players to her.
  • Spell arcane manatap.png  Mana Destruction Magic Effect — Cyanigosa destroys a player's mana every 2 sec. for 8 sec, inflicting Arcane damage equal to the amount of mana destroyed.


Fairly easy tank and spank. Tank should aggro her and tank her facing away from the group to get away from the breath. Periodically she does Uncontrollable energy, which can be dispelled. Also she will randomly summon everyone to the middle and throw them back. The teleport is an aggro wipe. Character Pets do not get their aggro wiped, however, so make sure the main tank taunts Cyanigosa right after the teleportation.
