Ty'thar has a very distinct fighting style, and as part of his agreement with the Brawler's Guild, you have to follow his rules:
- Face-to-face fist fighting. No running around.
- Three knockdowns wins the fight.
Players and Ty'thar will be rooted in place in the center of the arena. Ty'thar only has three abilities: left hook, right hook, and slam. Strafe right (defalt key E) when he throws a left hook, strafe left (default key Q) when he throws a right hook, and backpedal (default key S) when he tries to slam. Move immediately before he finishes the cast.
When Ty'thar runs out of health, he will get knocked down. He must get knocked down three times to beat the encounter. In contrast, the competitor is knocked down if he or she does not react to Ty'thar's blows properly, but also has three knockdowns to spare. Ty'thar's 2.1 million health (three times over) means that competitors must put out 53,000 DPS in order to win.
