Champion Drakin Cinderspire

Champion Drakin Cinderspire is a powerful, unique Flame Legion Lava Shaman that leads the Flame Legion forces occupying the Scorchlands within Iron Marches. He can be encountered at The Blasted Hearth accompanied by many different types of Fire Elementals, and wields an axe as well as potent fire magic in combat.

Combat abilities[edit]

His skills and attack pattern changes depending on which phase he's currently in:

  • In phase 1: he primarily uses heavy hitting melee attacks and a point blank AoE weapon swing, which he continues to throughout the event.
  • In phase 2: he uses an axe throw ranged attack which causes knockdown and burning as well as a whirling fire defense, during which he hurls firebolts for each ranged attack used against him (but doesn't reflect the projectiles used against him or prevent the attacks from reaching him).
  • In phase 3: he uses a brief, channeled, cone AoE in front of himself that Burns (similar to Drake's Breath) followed by an instant cone AoE in front of himself (similar to Fire Grab). He also briefly channels a ranged Lava Font that deals heavy damage over the duration to enemies inside and then launches them when it ends.

When Drakin's health pool is completely depleted he will transition to his next phase by retreating to the middle of the area and channeling, becoming immune to damage and summoning a large Fire Elemental as well as multiple Embers.

  • When transitioning for the second time, before phase 2, Drakin will also summon a number of Greater Embers.
  • When transitioning for the final time, before phase 3, Drakin will also summon a number of Veteran Fire Imps.
  • The large Fire Elemental can only be damaged by killing the Embers, Greater Embers, and/or Fire Imps.
  • Once the large Fire Elemental has been killed Drakin will lose the Determined.png Determined buff and begin his next phase.
  • This does not occur after phase 3, instead he simply dies.
  • If enough time has passed without the Embers and/or Fire Imps being damaged by players then they, along with the Fire Elemental, will despawn and Drakin will not enter his next phase. This takes a significant (3-5+ minutes) amount of time to happen and does not negatively affect the event's progression if it occurs.
