Adventure Guide

Powerful and wild, Aeonus was tasked by the Master of the Infinite Dragonflight to personally oversee the disruption of key moments in the true timeway.


  • Spell arcane arcane01.png  Time Stop — Aeonus stops time in a 0 yard sphere for 4 sec.
  • Spell fire windsofwoe.png  Sand Breath — Aeonus breaths sand, inflicting Arcane damage to all players in front of him, reducing their movement speed and increasing the time between their attacks for 10 sec.
  • Spell druid thrash.png  Thrash — Aeonus thrashes at his current target, attacking 2 additional times.
  • Ability warrior cleave.png  Cleave — Aeonus inflicts Physical damage to a player and their nearest allies, affecting up to 3 targets.
  • Spell shadow deathpact.png  Enrage enrage — Aeonus enrages, attacking 50% faster for 8 sec.


Aeonus's portal does not produce adds, and his arrival is signaled by a distinctive shout. All party members should avoid his angle of approach while resting to full health and mana, if combat permits. Provided that few mobs remain from the previous waves, Aeonus drains Medivh very slowly, and it is possible to recover from a wipe with ~50% shield left.

Positioning is not important in this fight as long as the tank is the sole person within the forward cone of the Sand Breath and aggro is held.

Aeonus stuns the party at irregular times and does not stop attacking. Keeping the tank near full health is your only concern. Healers with HOTs should refresh them frequently. While learning the fight, use your fastest spells. An off-healer and mana regeneration effects (e.g. [Innervate]) are strongly recommended.
