|It was not goblins that drove the Battlehammers from their halls. It was duergar. They came from the Underdark and had penetrated the lower Halls, exposing the dwarves to attack. With the dwarven warriors off fighting Kessell, those dwarves who remained behind were no match for the invading duergar. Before the Battlehammer Halls could be secured, we would have to seal the duergar breaching tunnels.|

The enemies here are not exactly strong defensively. They are quite easy to destroy. However, the duergar ranged attackers drop bombs when they die so try and evade quick.
This boss is pretty quick compared to the first boss in Act 1. However, since he is quite big, his moves can be predicted. Quick attacks work well here but also time your dodges since he is much quicker.
Additionally, he is susceptible to being stunned/staggered so take advantage of those moves and unleash your combos.
