Adventure Guide

An ancient who formed from an offshoot of Shaladrassil itself, Oakheart has survived the Sundering, the Cataclysm, and countless blights. The ancient was able to weather these storms by drawing strength from the essence of the Dream itself. But now, that wellspring has become his undoing.


Oakheart is a devastating brute that pummels the players with powerful physical attacks and Nightmare Breath. Beware the Strangling Roots erupting from the ground during the fight.

My bark is worse than my bite.

  • I will crush you to splinters.

  • To mulch.
  • You will be uprooted.

  • See you next fall.
I want to say something cleaver but I am stumped.
I told you to leave me alone...
Shade of Xavius says: A pity you have come so far only to die at the hands of Xavius!
Malfurion Stormrage says: An empty threat. You hold no sway over this realm, Nightmare Lord.
Shade of Xavius says: Bold words for a prisoner. Even an echo of my power was enough to overwhelm you!
