Like every Alliance champion, he is only encountered by Horde players.
Jacob Alerius uses warrior-style abilities:
- Mortal Strike: The same as any boss mob's Mortal Strike, and no less dangerous. Good idea to rotate trinkets and cooldowns while the Warrior's up with other damage bosses on heroic.
- Bladestorm: Every bit as effective as the real deal, this can break a melee DPS group if they're not careful. If your heroic group in particular is melee-heavy, it's a good idea to save Alerius for last so the tank can keep him away from the melee for a while.
- Rolling Throw: Pretty much your standard boss knockback attack, though I think the flying tank might also deal damage to anyone in the airborne player's way.
- Intercept: Nothing special, but be prepared for heal disruption now and then.
