Full Cataclysm Classic Bastion of Twilight Walkthrough

Bastion of Twilight Raid Layout

The Bastion of Twilight consists of three levels. There are 4 (Normal)/ 5 (Heroic) boss encounters. The third floor has a final encounter, accessible only on Heroic difficulty. The path is linear. You can’t choose the order of bosses.

Halfus Wyrmbreaker Boss Guide

Halfus Wyrmbreaker Boss Guide

Halfus fights side-by-side with Proto-Behemoth. This add is untargetable and will rain AoEs on the raid.

Halfus has 5 chained dragons, each giving him access to abilities or buffs. On Normal, only 3 out 5 dragons will be present. On Heroic — all 5. Releasing the dragons will apply debuffs to the boss or his pet dragon. Released dragons will become hostile, however, and the raid has to deal with them. When adds die, they inflict the boss with Dragon’s Vengeance, increasing the damage he takes.

Proto-Behemoth

Halfus Wyrmbreaker Boss Guide: Proto-Behemoth

The key to winning the fight is to deal with adds first. The recommended order is Storm Rider, Nether Scion, Time Warden, Emerald Whelps, and Slate Dragon. You can take them one by one, or in small batches. If you are confident in your raid group and have high AoE damage (several Warlocks and/or Mages), you may try to release them all at once and quickly burst them down, using powerful cooldowns such as Bloodlust

Theralion and Valiona Boss Guide

Theralion and Valiona Boss Guide

Two bosses sharing a Health pool. They switch between Ground and Airborne modes, changing abilities. The fight starts with Valiona on the ground and Theralion — in the air. Players can keep DoTs on both bosses for extra damage.

As you noticed, some attacks send players to the Twilight Realm. If someone happens to get there, they need to avoid orbs of Unstable Twilight, while searching for a portal to return to reality. Don’t linger, as you get DoT while being there. 

On Heroic difficulty, however, you want to send players into Twilight Realm on purpose. Through the fight, adds will spawn in the Realm and attack players from there. A group of several DPS and a Healer should get in from time to time and deal with adds. You can do this by getting hit with either Deep Breath or Dazzling Destruction. Or, by the next mechanic.

Ascendant Council Boss Guide

A “council”-type encounter. You will fight against 5 bosses in total, split between 3 phases in a 2–2–1 pattern. Phases shift as soon as one boss of the pair reaches 25%. Spread damage evenly, however, as the enemy of the final phase will have the total Health left of all 4 bosses. Pairs are fixed. Stack the bosses so the damage spreads evenly.

Phase 1

Feludius

Ascendant Council Boss Guide: Feludius

Ignacious

Ascendant Council Boss Guide: Ignacious

On Heroic difficulty, the next two mechanics come into play:

Solve both of these debuffs by having them run into each other at a designated beforehand spot. 

Phase 2

Phase 2 starts when either Ignacious or Feludius reaches 25% Health.

Arion

Ascendant Council Boss Guide: Arion

Terrastra

Ascendant Council Boss Guide: Terrastra

You can’t have both buffs since they replace each other, Keep track of what raid wide comes next to get the corresponding buff.

On Heroic, get additional mechanics:

Phase 3

When either Arion or Terrastra reaches 25% Health, All 4 bosses and their remaining Health combine into one entity. An attrition race phase, as it gets harder the longer it lasts.

Elementium Monstrosity

Ascendant Council Boss Guide: Elementium Monstrosity

The key to winning is to make this phase as short as possible by getting all 4 previous bosses to a 2526% Health range. Save bursts and strong offensive cooldowns like Bloodlust for this final phase.

Cho’gall Boss Guide 

Cho’gall Boss Guide 

Getting hit by avoidable attacks makes players’ Corruption gauge increase. Reaching corruption thresholds leads to negative effects, and increased damage during soft enrage. Avoid getting Corruption. Ideally, everyone should be under 25% by the time soft enrage starts. The enrage starts at 25% Health. 

Corruption

Cho’gall

When Cho’gall reaches 25%, the enrage starts.

Use strong bursts and cooldowns like Bloodlust for this phase to finish the boss before healers won’t be able to heal through the Corruption of the Old Gods

If you’re on Normal difficulty — congratulations, you finished The Bastion of Twilight. On Heroic, however, you still have one more encounter. 

Sinestra Boss Guide 

Sinestra Boss Guide 

The last of the Bastion of Twilight bosses has 3 phases, with the first and third one being identical. The boss has a high aggro range, so use Hunter and Feign Death to reset the boss, so the raid can preposition properly. 

Phase 1

Sinestra will start the fight with Drained debuff, having 60% Health and reduced damage dealt. To proceed to the next phase, you need to get her to 30% Health.

Ideally, you want to move to Phase 2 before the second cast of Wrack and the third wave of Whelps.

Phase 2

Intense add focused based. The whole raid should be split into several groups, each having its task. Before the Phase properly starts, players should run to the yellow shield created by a friendly NPC, Caleen, to avoid Twilight Extinction

Inside the yellow barrier, the group should deal with Whelps. Move them to the back of the shield, kill them all in one spot, making all the DoT zones drop in a single place, then move Whelps out and quickly kill them again. After that raid should split and commit to their tasks for this Phase.

Tanks and melee DPS will deal with the rest of the adds in the back of the arena. One tank should grab Twilight Spitecaller. These adds do a raid-wide that deals a percentage damage. The attack should not be stunned or interrupted. Use displacement CC to stop the casts, such as Gouge, Repentance, Death Grip, etc. Quickly focus this add before another one spawns. Another tank should grab Twilight Drake and turn him away from everyone (including friendly NPC), as the add cleaves.

Ranged DPS should split into two groups, each should have a healer. Their goal is to drain Sinestra’s Mana by attacking the Mana Barrier. This in turn will make the boss remove Twilight Carapace from Pulsing Twilight Eggs for 30s. Each group should quickly destroy eggs afterward. 

The remaining healers should keep healing Caleen, as he will convert his Health into Mana. Caleen’s survival is crucial, failing to save him until the end of the Phase results in a wipe.

Phase 3 

Identical to Phase 1, but now Sinestra has full Health and she attacks with full force. Caleen will die, but before that will buff everyone with a powerful buff. Use it together with the strongest burst and cooldowns such as Bloodlust to end the fight as quickly as possible. Here are some extra tips
