Speak to Archmage Khadgar to choose your preferred role, and defeat the Spirit of Kairozdormu.


That dead dragon's essence is seeped into the very fabric of this light-forsaken world. His spirit is also restless. If you and I are to claim what remains of his power, we're going to need to finish the job that Garrosh started.

I'm going to need to rely on your tactical combat expertise, commander. Would you prefer to go on the offensive, to fight defensively, or to heal us?

The decision is yours. Speak to me when you are ready, and the three of us will destroy Kairoz once and for all.

On accept:

Chromie says: Sorry for all the times you're about to get killed. If it's any consolation, you won't remember any of them.


You will receive:


I've never fought a dragon before, but you seem to know all the tactics.


<The archmage is out of breath.>

Give me - give me a moment. Pshew.

<Name>, that was incredible! You are possible the greatest <class> I've ever had the honor to fight alongside.


Speak with Khadgar again:

The three of us all bring different talents to the table. Chromie can manipulate time to heal our wounds, and I am capable of bearing the brunt of the dragon's attacks. All of us are worthy fighters.
But YOU are the tactical expert. We'll follow your lead. In what role are you strongest? Say the word and we'll begin:
  • Gossip I'll deal out the damage.
  • Gossip I'll heal us.
  • Gossip I'll defend us.

Pick a role and the other two will try to help.

Archmage Khadgar says: Very good: I will distract Kairoz while you attack.
Chromie says: If anyone gets too hurt, I'll undo your wounds.
Archmage Khadgar says: Excellent! I will distract Kairoz while Chromie goes on the offensive.
Chromie says: Do your best to keep us both alive!
Archmage Khadgar says: Good plan: you distract Kairoz while I attack.
Chromie says: If anyone gets too hurt, I'll undo your wounds.
Spirit of Kairzodormu says: You are Warchief no longer, Hellscream. You're free because I willed it. You live because I will it. You will join your father and rally the old orc clans because I will it!

Phase one

For the first half of the fight, Kairoz is in humanoid form and has the following abilities:

  • Time Bomb — Bounces up and down in a column of light. If it hits the ground, stuns and deals damage to all hostile units. Prevent this by standing under them before they hit.
  • Spell quicksand.png  Stinging Sands — Inflicts 9,750 to 10,250 Arcane damage every second. Void zone, 6-yard radius, 30-second duration
  • Summon Lesser Sands of Time — Summons 5-7 Lesser Sands of Time adds with 48,927 health.
  • Summon Sands of Time — Summon a Sands of Time with 293,562 health that has a Fixate ability.

Time Bombs are slowly bouncing up and down. Before they hit the ground, stand where they'll hit to harmlessly bounce them back to the sky. If they hit the ground, they will do wide area damage and stun for a few seconds.

Occasionally, Kairoz summons a swarm of Lesser Sands of Time or a single large Sands of Time. If Khadgar's tanking, his elemental will occasionally taunt all of the adds to it. Try to stay somewhat near Khadgar so he can help AoE them all down. Beware that frequently, the larger Sands of Time will fixate on the player regardless of the aggro table.

At 65%
Archmage Khadgar says: Kairoz! What did you want? Why did you need an army?

Phase two

At 50%
Spirit of Kairozdormu says: Not just one... An infinite number of armies, across an infinite number of worlds...
Spirit of Kairozdormu yells: I would be INFINITE!

In this phase, Kairoz has these abilities:

  • Stunning dragon cone breath attack
  • Inv misc monsterscales 05.png  Tail Sweep — Inflicts 23,125 to 26,875 damage on enemies in a cone behind the caster, stunning them. Instant. Causes a 2-sec knockdown
  • Achievement bg win ab x times.png  A Blip in Time — Inflicts 1950 to 2050 Arcane damage to all enemies. Instant.
  • Achievement guildperk workingovertime rank2.png  Ripples in Time — Inflicts 214,500 to 225,500 Arcane damage to all enemies. 10 sec cast (1.5 sec cast cooldown)

At this point, Kairoz stops summoning adds and shifts to full dragon form with a standard frontal cone breath attack and tail swipe. Sidestep out of the breath. He now has a new ability, Ripples in Time, that will one-shot just about everything in line of sight. Hide behind the rocks outside the clearing.

Spirit of Kairozdormu says: Auuggh - Hellscream - without me - wh-
Archmage Khadgar says: Victory! Champion, you did it!
