Adventure Guide

Beauty's past is a tale as old as time, a song as old as rhyme. After Beauty's mate, Beast, was slain by heroes in Blackrock Spire, the hound and its four remaining pups joined forces with the Twilight's Hammer, intent on punishing the creatures who killed its mate.

  • Lucky, Spot, and Buster Heroic Difficulty — In Heroic Difficulty, two of the three pups of Beauty will fight with Beauty. Engaging either of the two pups will cause Beauty to also attack the players. 
    • Ability hunter pet corehound.png  Little Big Flame Breath — Inflicts 4250 Fire damage over 5 seconds. 9980 Fire damage on Heroic

Spot, Buster, and Lucky are positioned in front of Beauty near the mouth of her cave. On Normal mode, you may pull them away and kill them before engaging Beauty, but on Heroic mode Beauty pulls with them so you will have to CC them to the best of your abilities. This is simplified somewhat on Heroic mode as only two pups spawn. If you cannot CC all the pups then any remaining pups will have to be burned down to avoid being overwhelmed by their AoE Lava Drool. Runty is situated in the back of the room and your group should have little trouble avoiding him entirely as he does not pull with Beauty regardless of what mode you're on. However take note that if somehow Runty is killed Beauty will enrage and quickly wipe the group.

Once the pups have been dealt with by either CC or death Beauty herself is a fairly simple tank and spank. Ideally, she should be tanked close front of the cave away from Runty so any Beauty's knock back and fear abilities don't accidentally pull him. Besides all of this, Beauty's abilities are healed through easily and most groups should have little problem downing her as long as Runty is avoided and the other pups are CC'd or killed.
