Adventure Guide

So great was the power of the Last Guardian, Medivh, that his magic still echoes through the halls of Karazhan. Some of these echoes take the shape of visions, revealing past events to the tower's guests. Others assume more malevolent forms, recalling a time when the Guardian's will was not his own.

Overview

Medivh assaults players with Piercing Missiles, Inferno Bolt and Frostbite until he reaches full mana. Once he has reached full mana he uses one of his Focused Power abilities. Players must stop all movement when Flamewreath is cast.
