Meet the latest Vault of Archavon loot Piñata, Toravon the Ice Watcher. If you beat on him long enough he’ll drop some ilvl264+ gear, and maybe even an epic mount. Unlike the other 3 bosses in VoA, Toravon only drops 3 pieces of epic loot, but who can complain..?
If you haven’t yet attempted this boss, I suggest you do so. Difficulty wise, he’s maybe a tad bit harder than Koralon and easily PuG’able.
The fight is really simple for the most part. As a hunter, your job is to DPS Toravon until the adds spawn, kill the adds, then resume DPS on Toravon. Rinse and repeat until he’s dead.
Before the adds spawn, white rings will appear on the floor. This is where the adds will emerge. If you’re standing near one of these white rings, then move. The adds do AoE frost damage, which can easily kill you if you take too much of it.
Since there’s a whole bunch of frosty puffs all around the room, the adds can be somewhat difficult to spot. You can spam tab target or create a /target Frost Orb macro to help with targeting. I found the easiest way to deal with them was just to keep a close eye on the white rings while DPSing Toravon, then mouse target the Frost orb as soon as it’s out.
If you pull aggro on the orb, then either kite it around if you can do so safely, Disengage or feign death. As I’d said, they can do some nasty damage if they get close.
I didn’t get any goodies from him last night, but a warrior in my guild picked up a nice pair of S8 boots, allowing him a decent head start on gear for the arena season.
Unlike Koralon however, this fight is not a showcase for Hunter DPS. There is a lot of target switching, along with a good deal of movement involved with this fight.
