Encounter Journal: Firelands – Beth’tilac

Beth’tilac | Lord Rhyolith | Alysrazor | Shannox | Baleroc | Majordomo Staghelm | Ragnaros

Matriarch of the Cinderweb Brood, Beth’tilac and her merciless offspring sate their appetites by sucking the magma and fire from the corpses of elementals. To provide her broodlings with aded sustenance, Beth’tilac has woven a network of incendiary webs throughout her lair to trap unsuspecting prey.

Phase 1: The Cinderweb

Beth’tilac retreats to her web at the beginning of the battle. Beneath her web scurry her blood.

Abilities:

  • Fire Energy: Beth’tilac will slowly lose Fire Energy over time. In addition, Cinderweb Drones will siphon some of her energy when they are depleted. Whenever Beth’tilac runs out of Fire Energy, she will set herself ablaze, causing Smoldering Devastation.
  • Ember Flare: Intense heat burns enemies near Beth’tilac, dealing 21012 Fire damage to those on the same side of the web as she is.
  • Meteor Burn: Meteors crash down onto the web, dealing 42024 Fire damage to those who stand beneath them. Additionally, they burn a hole in the web through which players may fall.
  • Consume: Beth’tilac consumes Cinderweb Spiderlings, healing for 10% of her life.
  • Smoldering Devastation: When Beth’tilac is depleted of Fire Energy she will set herself ablaze, obliterating those who are not shielded by her web.

Minions:

Cinderweb Spinner: These spiders dangle from the web above. Using Taunt or a similar ability on them will cause them to drop to the ground. Once killed, their filaments remain allowing players to climb up to the Cinderweb.

  • Burning Acid: The Cinderweb Spinner spits burning venom at a random enemy, dealing 23641 Fire damage.

Cinderweb Drone: These large spiders climb out of caves below the cinderweb. When they are depleted of Fire Energy, they will climb up to Beth’tilac and siphon Fire Energy from her.

  • Consume: Cinderweb Drones consume Spinderweb Spiderlings for 20% of their maximum life and provide them additional movement and attack speed.
  • Boiling Splatter: The Cinderweb Drone spits burning venom at enemies in a 60 degree cone, dealing 66975 Fire damage.
  • Burning Acid: The Cinderweb Drone spits burning venom at a random enemy, dealing 23641 Fire damage.

Cinderweb Spiderling: These tiny spiders climb out of caves below the Cinderweb. They instinctively move towards Cinderweb Drones for protection. Cinderweb Spiderlings can be consumed by larger spiders in order to restore some of their health.

  • Seeping Venom: The Cinderweb Spiderling leaps onto a random enemy within 5 yards, injecting them with venom, which sears them for 7879 Fire damage every 2 seconds for 10 sec.

Phase 2: The Frenzy!

After she has performed Smouldering Devastation three times, Beth’tilac becomes frenzied. She emerges from the safety of her Cinderweb canopy and no longer calls for aid from her brood.

  • Frenzy: Soon
  • The Widow’s Kiss: Beth’tilac’s deadly kiss boils the blood of her current target, reducing the amount that they can be healed by 2% every 2 seconds for 20 sec. It also causes the target to deal growing Fire damage to their surrounding allies within 10 yards.
  • Ember Flare: Intense heat burns enemies near Beth’tilac, dealing 21012 Fire damage to those on the same side of the web as she is.
  • Consume: Beth’tilac consumes Cinderweb Spiderlings, healing for 10% of her life.
