Adventure Guide

Odyn, a titan keeper, was empowered by the titan Pantheon to lead the titan-forged armies against the Old Gods. In the aftermath, he raised the Halls of Valor into the skies, assembling a force of the greatest vrykul champions to defend Azeroth. But when Ulduar fell into the clutches of Yogg-Saron, he was betrayed by Loken and cursed by Helya, now trapped within these halls for eternity.


Odyn challenges players to honorable combat. When a player would die, they are instead removed from the fight by Odyn's val'kyr. Upon being reduced to 80% of his life, Odyn is convince of players' worth and ends the fight.

Odyn will regularly summon Spears of Light from yellow void zones on the ground. Step away from them and stay away from them as he will then shatter them, sending yellow light shards in several directions, stunning and hurting anyone they come into contact with. Odyn will also regularly pull characters closer to him and start casting Radiant Tempest, a spell that kills anyone in the large circle around him. The cast time is long enough for anyone paying attention to be able to run far enough away from the circle.

He will summon Stormforged Obliterators, silver valajar which will cast Surge, an electric shockwave that will hurt everyone in the group. Every time the obliterator gets a successful cast off, they will gain a buff that increases their casting speed. Thus, all dps should switch to the obliterator and stun and interrupt it as much as possible while killing it.
