Mephistroth is the last boss in Cathedral of Eternal Night.
Mephistroth orchestrates the Legion's invasion from the Broken Shore. With the forces of Azeroth pushing against his front line, Mephistroth has fallen back to the Cathedral of Eternal Night, where he will employ all his cunning to ensure the heroes fail in securing the Aegis of Aggramar.
Mephistroth uses shadow magic to attack the party until he reaches 100% energy. Once his energy is full, Mephistroth fades away and strikes at the heroes from the shadows. During this, Illidan must be protected with the Aegis of Aggramar long enough for him to pull the dreadlord back into the light. On Mythic difficulty, fel bats fly in through the windows during Shadow Fade and assault the heroes with Fel Blaze.

Stage One: Mephistroth
- Carrion Swarm — A cresting wave of chaotic magic splashes over enemies in front of the caster, dealing 1197000 to 1323000 Shadow damage. It also leaves shadow puddles in the area that inflict 47500 to 52500 Shadow damage every 1 sec.
- Demonic Upheaval — Hurls fel energy at random enemies that places an aura on the targets. When the aura expires, a Fel Spike erupts at the destination, inflicting 798000 to 882000 Fire damage to nearby enemies and knocking them back as well as inflicting 616027 to 680873 Fire damage to enemies within 18 yards.

- Image of Aegwynn says: In ages past, this shield defended the young world soul against madness and corruption. Today, it serves those who fight for Azeroth.
- Image of Aegwynn says: I am Aegwynn, Guardian of Tirisfal. I left behind this echo of my power as a safeguard in the event that the wards I put in place to protect the tomb failed. Indeed, I sense that the master of the Burning Legion now schemes to claim his prize.
