Noteworthy Trash Mobs

While the fight with Geli requires no explanation, you must be very careful when pulling the adds around the room prior to pulling the boss.

Event – Fire Of Aku”Mai

The Fire of Aku”mai event is a small event after Lord Kelris that is required to open the door to the final boss of BFD, Aku”Mai. At the base of the Azshara statue where Kelris channels his magic, there are four braziers positioned in each corner of the statue”s pedestal. Once Kelris is dead and the room is clear, have your tank click on ONE brazier, activating a single wave of the event. Each wave spawns a series of mobs that need to be killed. The first wave, the turtle wave, is the most difficult. The turtles do a tremendous amount of damage and require an offtank pick one of them up, otherwise your tank will die. Pet classes and rogue evasion tanks are very useful here. After a wave is complete, make sure to top off your group in health and mana before clicking the next brazier. All 4 braziers and subsequently all 4 waves must be conquered before the door to Aku”Mai”s lair opens…
