To defeat him, players must first engage him at his building, then follow him when he stuns them and runs. He will mount a dragon, and players will be provided their own to follow. Ranged classes can attack him from the back of their dragon while melee classes can use a provided leap ability to transfer to his dragon. If he isn't killed, the fight continues atop one of the floating rocks near the Temple of Earth.
- Players have reported issues where their provided dragons despawn before they can be mounted. This is sometimes due to having a non-combat pet out and usually having an addon like Pet Leash enabled. Dismissing the pet and disabling the "auto-call" feature of the addon should resolve the issue.
