What Is A World Boss?

World bosses are powerful enemies often with their own unique abilities.  They sometimes require groups of players to overcome.  World bosses in DLC zones are significantly harder than other base game bosses.

ESO Map Icon World Boss

On your map, world bosses appear with a blackened skull and crossed swords icon.  Once the world boss is defeated, the world boss icon turns white.

World Bosses In High Isle and Amenos

High Isle has a total of six world bosses.  You can find specific information about each of them (and lots of other info about High Isle too) in the Ultimate High Isle Zone Guide.  Let’s concentrate on the Sable Knight who is located at Y’ffre’s Cauldron. As mentioned earlier, the key to this battle is ‘Don’t stand in stupid!‘.  

The Sable Knight at Y’ffre’s Cauldron

The easiest way to find this world boss is to travel slightly southeast from the Steadfast Manor Wayshrine.  As you enter the stone arena, you will find the Sable Knight most likely kneeling and glowing with a purple magic aura.  

Mechanics Notes

The Sable Knight will summon Dead Priests, Dead Wanderers, and Dead Stalkers throughout the fight.  His primary method of damage is from heavy cleaves and a very fast boomeranging shield.  This can one-shot lower health players.  Don’t stand in stupid.  You do have plenty of time to get out of the aoe if you simply watch for it and move!  He also releases a larger purple aoe that resembles flames when he summons a Dead Priest who appears to be channeled to him.  While it does damage a little, it looks much worse than it is.  There didn’t seem to be an interrupting effect while bashing the Dead Priest connected to the Sable Knight.  

Achievement Earned
