Skorpyron is the first boss in the Nighthold.

Adventure Guide

Deep within the foundations of the Nighthold, beneath the sea, lie long-forgotten vaults that give access to the Nightwell itself. This monstrous armored scorpid has made its home in one of these vaults. Infused with the power of the Nightwell, and surrounded by a teeming brood, Skorpyron presents a serious complication to an otherwise-promising back entry to the Nighthold.

Overview

Skorpyron's lair is a constantly spawning chamber of scorpids that join the battle following Call of the Scorpid, but which also attack if any player strays too close.

First Arcanist Thalyssra yells: What madman thought to infuse this creature with the Nightwell's power? Have a care, if this abomination was created to protect lower reaches of the citadel from invaders, it must be particularly deadly.
Outro
First Arcanist Thalyssra yells: This is a momentous day, my friends. Until the Legion came, no outsider was permitted inside the corridors of the Nighthold for ten-thousand years.
