  • 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)
  • Avatar: Increases the Physical damage dealt by the caster by 50% and enhances its armor by 50% for 15 sec.
  • Storm Bolt: Throws a hammer at an enemy, inflicting 150 nature damage and stunning the target for 8 sec.
  • As with many bosses, he is immune to most crowd control abilities and incapacitating effects.
  • [Thunder Clap] inflicts 71 to 79 nature damage and time between attacks increased by 33%.
    Movement speed reduced by 40% for 10 seconds.

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.
