Infinite Corruptor is a boss located deep within Stratholme. He is found corrupting a bronze dragonspawn during the Culling of Stratholme, leaving upon success. He'll only drop  [Reins of the Bronze Drake] besides the badges. This is a guaranteed drop.

Players seeking to battle him only have 25 minutes from the first Scourge wave to kill him; merely engaging him does not stop the timer. He is located in the Market Row which is located just past the gate leading to the Mal'Ganis encounter. He's at the far end of the left side of the junction past the gate, while Mal'Ganis is on the right.

He is only present in heroic mode.

Attacks and abilities

  • Spell shadow felmending.png  Corrupting Blight — Inflicts 8% of the target's maximum health in damage every 3 sec. for 2 min. Stacks up to 5 times.
  • Spell shadow painspike.png  Void Strike — Inflicts 100% weapon damage to an enemy, ignoring all of the enemy's armor.

Strategies

For all intents and purposes, the Infinite Corruptor is a tank and spank boss.

Getting to him within the time constraints will require a fast clear. In the first few months after the release of World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, this was a very difficult feat, though reaching the Infinite Corruptor is now considered to be automatic, with better runs reaching him with 10 minutes or more left on the timer.

The most vital strategy is to be aggressive in going after the waves on the first and third legs of the instance. This is especially true on the third leg, as several of the elites can be picked up at the same time, and waiting for Arthas to engage the mobs will slow the group down considerably.

Notes

To be successful in getting the loot from the mob, he must die before he reaches the portal. A viable tactic is to kite the boss away from the portal if your time is low. That way, when he flees he can still take damage before reaching the portal and despawning.

Lore implications

The presence of this npc in the Culling of Stratholme, as well as the activity he is undertaking, would seem to suggest that the Infinite Dragonflight is in fact made up of Bronze Dragons who have been subverted.
