Witherbark is the first boss of The Everbloom.

Background

Adventure Guide

Deep within the lush forests of Gorgrond, Witherbark has seen countless cycles of life and death, decay and rebirth. The upstart "Iron Horde" and the strange beings that seem to have arrived in their wake are just a new skin on an old snake. They will be gone soon. And Witherbark will endure.

Overview

Witherbark grows increasingly dehydrated as he attacks the group, consuming his stores of Aqueous Energy. When his Energy is depleted, he roots himself in the soil and calls globules of water from the nearby lake to restore his vitality. Players may destroy those Globules before they reach him to prolong this phase.

Abilities

  • Inv misc embers.png  Brittle Bark — Witherbark's bark dries and becomes brittle, stunning him and increasing his damage taken by 100%. This effect is removed when Witherbark reaches 100 Aqueous Energy.
  • Spell sandstorm.png  Parched Gasp — Unleashes a torrent of unbridled natural energy, inflicting 95000 to 105000 Nature damage to all enemies in a cone in front of the caster.
  • Spell nature elementalshields.png  Unchecked Growth — Creates a viney growth that moves towards a player. Upon reaching that player, the growth erupts and emits poisonous vapors inflicting 12187 to 12813 Nature damage every 1 sec to anyone in the area. In Heroic difficulty, Witherbark can continue to cast Unchecked Growth even while affected by Brittle Bark.
    • Unchecked Growth Important — When touched by the life giving power of an Aqueous Globule, the Unchecked Growth uproots itself and attacks nearby players.
  • Spell frost frostbolt.png  Agitated Water — The enchanted waters of the nearby lake bubble and churn launching a bolt of water at a player's location. Upon impact, the bolt inflicts 14625 to 15375 Frost damage to all players within 3 yards.
  • Aqueous Globules — Spheres of pure water form from the nearby lake and move in a line towards Witherbark. Each Aqueous Globule that reaches Witherbark restores 25 Energy.
  • Ability shawaterelemental swirl.png  Aqueous Burst — Upon reaching zero health, the Aqueous Globule erupts and inflicts 14917 to 15683 Frost damage to all players.

Strategy

Non-melees should be generally on the opposite side of the boss from the water. The tank should position him some distance from the water, facing away from the party. He will spawn vines under party members, which should be gotten away from.

When he is low on health, he will "freeze" and take double damage. Globes will appear from the water and move toward him to revive him - these can be killed to prolong his debuff phase. If a globe touches a vine, it will spawn an add, but if the ranged DPS and healers are positioned correctly, this shouldn't be much of a problem.
