  • Melees for about 14k with absolutely no armor. This is buffed by 25/56/95/144% depending on the number of marshals up. (level 80 damage)
  • As with many bosses, he is immune to most crowd control abilities and incapacitating effects.

If Vanndar has any marshals up, his damage and health are buffed by 25% for each marshal. However, the buff is applied seperately. So he will have 25% more damage with 1 marshal, 56% more damage and health at 2 marshals. 95% at 3 marshals, and 144% with all 4 up. This is compared to his base damage and health.
