Strategy

Vian summons a volatile orb in the center of the room and occasionally casts volatile flame at it, triggering a fire orb that will bounce off the walls for the rest of the encounter. Don't let him run in to one, as it'll buff his damage and casting speed.

His go-to ability is Lava Burst, which is straight-up damage. He also casts Fire Line, which will drop a line of fire from his position to roughly 30 yards out a few yards wide. Just move out of the way before he finishes the cast.

Vian will require slightly higher than 7,400 DPS to defeat him before the enrage timer.
