Background

He appears in a few quests in Westfall, and later shows up again as a boss of the Deadmines.

Phase 2
  • Spell fire immolation.png  Fire Blossom — Glubtok launches a Fire Blossom at a random location in the room that lands two seconds later. When the Fire Blossom lands, it knocks up and inflicts 13 to 16 Fire damage to nearby enemies within 5 yards. Instant
  • Spell fire blueimmolation.png  Frost Blossom — Glubtok launches a Frost Blossom at a random location in the room that lands two seconds later. When the Frost Blossom lands, it deals 13 to 16 Frost damage, reduces the movement speed by 40%, reduces the frequency of melee and ranged attacks by 25%, and increases the casting time by 25% of nearby enemies within 5 yards for 4 sec.
  • Spell holy innerfire.png  Fire Wall Heroic Difficulty — After casting Arcane Power, Glubtok creates a single wall of fire that begins to slowly rotate around him. Players who do not avoid the Fire Wall take 46250 to 53750 Fire damage every second.

Strategy

Phase 1

Glubtok will alternate Fists of Frost and Fists of Fire. Fists of frost will slow the movement and attack speed of the tank and nearby players and Fists of Fire will cause his melee attacks to deal AoE Fire damage and have a small knockback. Glubtok will blink between fist cycles.

Phase 2

Once Glubtok reaches half health, he will deep freeze the entire party and teleport to the center. He will then gain Arcane Power, causing him to float above the ground (still attackable by melee) and channel a spell causing him to shoot fire and frost at random locations, visibly marked. In this phase, the party needs to DPS him down while avoiding his attacks. He no longer melees and only uses the fire and frost abilities.

Heroic Mode

In phase 2, a wall of flame will appear and slowly rotate around the room, centered on Glubtok. It is easy to avoid, but everyone must pay attention to it as touching it will deal massive damage to any party member. Also, Fire Blossoms and Frost Blossoms will spawn near where ever one of the spells of the same name landed. You should get rid of them as soon as possible as a lot of these adds will sum up to a lot of damage. It is a good idea for everyone to get together as phase 2 starts, because the tank cannot cross the fire wall to protect party members once it is up, and all adds that have been aggroed by the tank will be hit by any AoE spells the players cast.

Any player who finishes the fight without taking damage from the fire wall will earn the achievement [Ready for Raiding].
