Hey guys, I have an awesome tip to share with you in Uldaman for the boss Bromach. Depending on your preference, he can be either the second or first boss. We discovered that the two giants standing in front of the boss, this particular trash pack, have an ability that increases the damage taken by surrounding mobs. Here's what you need to do:
Pulling the Trash Pack with Bromach
- Pull these two giants along with the boss.
- When they reach 50% health, they will cast an ability called Reckless Rage.
- This ability causes the boss to take 20% increased damage.
Identifying the Key Trash Pack
If you refer to your MDT notes, you'll find that it's this specific pack with the two hulking Berserkers right in front of the boss. The Reckless Rage ability puts a debuff on their allies, affecting all enemies in the area.
Boss Difficulty and Considerations
There may be more tricks like this in the dungeon, allowing you to pull these two mobs with different strategies. However, we have found that pulling them with Bromach is extremely effective. Despite receiving a few nerfs, this boss can still be challenging, dealing significant damage to the party.
Watching the Strategy in Action
As you can see in the video, we execute this strategy and quickly bring down the boss. When the two Berserkers reach 50% health, the debuff is visible, showcasing the 20% increased damage dealt and taken.
Understanding the Debuff
I should mention that the debuff also increases the damage output of the enemies. However, the 20% increased damage taken by the boss is more advantageous overall. It's important to be prepared for the extra damage the boss will deal, but the benefits outweigh the risks.
A little side note: You can actually choose to tackle this boss first before the "official" first boss. Simply walk around the corner and come here first, then backtrack a bit. The reason for this is the opportunity to use Bloodlust. This boss is a great target for Bloodlust, whereas the first boss doesn't require it. So, consider doing this boss first, as the additional walking time is minimal, only around 10 seconds back and forth.
Time Efficiency and Burst Damage
As you can see in the video, the boss encounter is relatively quick. We engage the boss around the 4:15 mark on the timer, and it's already 5:35, meaning it took about a minute and a half to defeat him. Of course, keep in mind that we have some high burst damage classes like the Retribution Paladin, Destruction Warlock, and Frost Mage. Nevertheless, with the boss taking an extra 20% damage, this strategy is undoubtedly a game-changer.
I hope you find this trick helpful for your Uldaman runs. Thanks for watching, and remember to subscribe for more helpful content. See you next time!
