- ω ϖ—Gives the caster 2 extra attacks.
- ω ϖ—Summons a pair of Defias Blackguards to assist the caster.
Note: VanCleef is stunnable.
Before engaging VanCleef, be sure to defeat Captain Greenskin who patrols the area where VanCleef is standing. VanCleef initially has two level 19 - 20 Defias Blackguards. When VanCleef's health drops below 50%, two additional level 19 - 20 blackguards will spawn. Some people say that ignoring the adds and just attacking VanCleef is the best tactic to kill him. Another method that works is, standing on the cannon to the left, just before you step into the area Captain Greenskin patrols. Get a mage on the cannon, and get a tank to draw VC and his adds out after killing Greenskin. Draw them to the cannon, and get the mage to use some ranged attacks (a wand preferably) to distract the adds. The adds will *evade* the ranged attacks, but remain incapacitated until you stop doing them. After killing VC, move onto the other mobs, one at a time.
