Lieutenant Drake is the first mini-boss of Escape from Durnholde in Caverns of Time. He appears after you have put bombs in all of the barrels inside the internment lodges inside Durnholde Keep. He is a warrior-type mob with several abilities including Whirlwind.

Attacks and Abilities


Fairly straightforward tank and spank. Although Lieutenant Drake has quite some health, he has no real dangerous abilities. That said keep clothies away from his Whirlwind attack. Be ready with Divine Shield, Fear Ward, Death Wish, etc. if the fear becomes a problem.

Heroic Mode

When Drake appears, patrols despawn, and all of the sentries left at the bombed buildings will step aside to watch the flames. If you have left many sentries alive, the area under the bridge remains relatively safe, and you may jump down to confront Drake there as he patrols underneath. If instead you chose to clear the prisoner pit, you may use the stairs to keep your ranged DPS and healers at a safe distance.

Prior to Patch 2.3.0, Intimidating Shout posed a great risk to those outside its area of effect. Currently, Drake will remain on the tank unless threat is exceeded through the usual ways.

If your warrior waits to use Shield Wall until Drake yells "Time to Bleed", you can avoid the chance of your tank dying in 1 second from the Mortal Strike, and melee right after.
