The Nine is a boss encounter located in the Sanctum of Domination. It is a council-style fight primarily against the three surviving members of Sylvanas Windrunner's Val'kyr.

Adventure Guide

The dark pact Sylvanas struck with the val’kyr forged her bond with the Jailer. Through the years, these winged sisters faithfully served the Dark Lady, even if it meant sacrificing themselves on her behalf. Now Sylvanas calls her nine val’kyr to fight for her one last time.

Overview

Kyra and Signe begin the assault on the ground, using Wings of Rage and Reverberating Refrain when their energy reaches 100.

Meanwhile, Skyja commands the other val'kyr to strike from the skies. When she reaches 100 energy, she casts Call of the Val'kyr to call assistance from her fallen companions.

When Kyra or Signe reach low health, Skyja lands and continues the battle.
