Background

For Baine's character biography, see Baine Bloodhoof.

Dungeon Journal

Enraged by his failure to protect the world and, most importantly, the Horde, this time-ravaged shade of Baine Bloodhoof lingers within the ruins of the Obsidian Dragonshrine. Although he's still as powerful as the tauren high chieftain from the present, within this shattered future Azeroth, this guilt-ridden echo is little more than a discordant vessel of unquenchable malice and anger.

Strategy

Echo of Baine is a dps race with emphasis on movement, and has a totem throwing mechanic.

Echo of Baine begins on the most northwest platform. The tank and melee dps should begin the fight from an adjacent platform, and ranged and heals should begin at the platform opposite Baine. The strategy example shown on the diagram refers to these platforms as 4 and 1, respectively.

The tank pulls Baine from platform 3 to 4. As Baine enters the magma, he receives Molten Mace, a short-duration buff to weapon damage. It is advisable for the tank to retreat to the back of the platform, so that Baine wastes part of his buff duration closing the distance to the tank and has less time to melee while buffed. Some slow effects can extend this delay in damage. This process can be repeated following each cast of Pulverize, as Baine will enter the Magma when returning to the tank.

During the fight, the tank and melee position themselves as near as possible to the healer without touching the magma, and all ranged and the healer position themselves as close to the Echo of Baine, to reduce time spent in the magma after the totem pushback effect.

Echo of Baine will cast Throw Totem, knocking back a player with a totem. This totem can be thrown back to Baine, stunning him and delivering damage equal to 5% of his maximum health. To accomplish this, click the totem after it lands. Then you will be given a tiny green targeting circle. Place the circle at Baine's feet and click the mouse to throw the totem and stun him. Any person can click the totem to throw it (and it's probably easier for the person who didn't get punted into the lava).

Echoe of Baine will leap to a ranged player and cast Pulverize, which most notably sinks the platform, so that ranged players must move to a new platform. In the illustrated example, players will swim from platform 1 to 2 after the first Pulverize, then to platform 3, then 4, after subsequent Pulverizes. Note the stacking damage when a player swims in magma, which is moderate.

Echo of Baine should be killed before he pulverizes platform 4, as the magma's stacking damage will quickly overwhelm healing once all platforms are submerged.
