Imprisoned at Sentinel Hill

Strategy

Phase 1

Admiral Ripsnarl has a buff called Thirst for Blood, which gives him a 10% (20% heroic) attack speed and a 5% (10% heroic) movement speed increase per stack, stacking up to 20 times, for each successful melee attack he performs. Melee DPS should stay behind the boss to not be hit by Swipe. Every once in a while he will cast Go For the Throat on a random party member, stunning the member for 2 seconds.

Phase 2

Every 25% health, he will vanish and the ship's deck will be overrun by fog. A few adds called Vapors will spawn and need to be killed immediately. In heroic mode, if not killed immediately these mobs will deal tremendous damage and wipe out the party. After a certain amount of time or when the vapors are all dead, Admiral Ripsnarl will cast Go For the Throat on a random group member, stunning them for 2 seconds, and reappear. At around 25% he will disappear into the fog again, but this time he will cast Go For the Throat whilst the adds are continuously spawning, at this point you should cast all your CDs and give it your best on Admiral Ripsnarl and not take note of the adds.

When Ripsnarl dies, all of the vapors will despawn, and "Captain" Cookie will spawn inside the hut.
