How To Defeat Cairne Bloodhoof in Warcraft Rumble?
As you approach Warcraft Rumble midway, you'll find it getting more and more challenging. While a challenge is good once in a while, defeating Cairne Bloodhoof can be a bit of a struggle. The region, Thousand Needles, poses a tough challenge to players, especially when facing this relentless onslaught of the Horde leader turned PVE boss.
Defeating Cairne Bloodhoof demands strategic finesse using the right Mini combination and a tactical approach. While defeating him is not the goal, defeating him before your Main Tower falls is. Here's an in-depth guide on how to beat Cairne Bloodhoof in Warcraft Rumble.
Defeating Cairne Bloodhoof In Warcraft Rumble
Cairne Bloodhoof is no pushover. His offensive prowess is a force to be reckoned with and unless you crumble that prowess, you will succumb to time. You have to reach Cairne before your Main Tower falls.
To stand a chance against Bloodhoof, make sure that your Minis are at Rank 9 or higher, and are matching the strength of Cairne's minions. Steer clear of armored units as Cairne deploys Flame Elementals, which can be detrimental to your performance. And be cautious of winged enemies, given his ranged attackers.
Taking Control of the Map
Start the battle with a tactical advantage by installing your Minis at the Central Guard Tower. This will intercept Cairne's Warsong Grunts down at the middle.
Next, employ your Tank Minis or Heroes to form a line. Simultaneously, make sure that Offensive Minis on the right flank take the central Guard Tower. Also, keep in mind that Melee Minis are more effective against Cairne's interceptors, which will ensure that your initial push doesn't fail. Siege Minis can also be used, but Melee Minis are relatively more impactful.
Take Control Over Both Towers
Once you have control over both towers, divide your forces to assail Cairne Bloodhoof. The foundational map control comes in extremely handy during this encounter.
Begin by eliminating both towers. Then, lure Cairne's units to the right. Deploy anti-tower units, such as Gargoyles, to seize the left tower, leaving it vulnerable. Use Bat Riders against Warsong Grunts and Abominations against Ogre Mages to tip the results in your favor.
Pincer Cairne Bloodhoof
Once both towers are under your control, execute a pincer move on Cairne. Attack him from two different angles to mitigate his area-of-effect damage.
Make sure to use ranged units strategically and employ units like the S.A.F.E. Pilot to divert Cairne's attention and use them for splash-down moves to swiftly eliminate the support units that Cairne brings in a hurry to defend against your attacks.
