World Boss Locations Most can be found in the Shadowlands. It wasn't until patch 9.1 that the World Boss in The Maw was added.



This World Boss appears in the land of Maldraxxus, in the area called the House of the Chosen

One of the most studied necromancers of the House of Rituals, Mortanis has been working tirelessly on a means of transforming himself into a more powerful form. Now, he is only a few moments from succeeding.

By defeating him, we can get items at level 207.


Oranomonos the Everbranching


He can be seen in the land of Adrenweald just outside Tirna Scithe

Once the eldest guardian of Tirna Scithe, Oranomonos has wilted alongside the great tree. With very little anima left, she can no longer discern friend from foe, as the gorm gorge themselves on her decaying form.

Rewards for defeating him are items at level 207.


Valinor, the Light of Eons


He can be found in the Land of Bastion, near the Temple of Loyalty

Built by the Kyrians as a means of testing their hardened warriors, Valinor is a centurion of great power. Taken by the forsworn and infected with the seed of doubt, Valinor now sees all foes as challengers.

For defeating him, we can get items at level 207.


Nurgash Muckformed


You can find him in the north of Revendreth near Dominance Keep

Formed from the sludgy mass of many dripping dredgers, and empowered with dark magics by Denathrius's most elite sorcerers, Nurgash is not the most intelligent minion, but his fists can crush castles.

For defeating him, we can get items at level 207.
