WoW Shadowlands: How to dance a Nathria raid boss to the ground

The Venthyr stronghold Castle Nathria is the first raid that awaits you in the new WoW expansion Shadowlands. For some time now, the WoW developers have been testing the combat mechanics and bosses in Nathria, and the authors of Vanion.eu have also been on the beta server late at night. They noticed that the fight against the Council of Blood has quite unusual mechanics, because the whole raid has to dance. Not like Heigan in Naxxramas, where you simply memorized when to run where. No, there is real dancing! Check it out in Vanion's video!

The actual game mechanic is called the Dance of Death or Danse Macabre in English. The effect occurs when Lord Stavros, Baroness Frieda or Castellan Niklaus only have 50 percent of their life points left. Then all members of the council disappear to their balconies and call every hero in the room to the corresponding dance place. This is marked by circles of light on the floor. Anyone who doesn't run into it will have their head cut off. Once you enter the spot, your action bar will change to arrow icons that allow you to dance forward, backward, left, and right. Dance instructions appear on the screen and you must press the right direction four times at the right time, as the folks at Vanion write.

If you don't manage to do that, you'll end up outside the dance area for thirty seconds, stunned, and you won't be able to rejoin the fight until the time has elapsed. Funny! Or also ... frustrating, at least if there should be much more draconian punishments in heroic or mythic mode. What do you think of this idea?


you think it's good or have you already been overwhelmed with the Heigan dance?
