Boss Guide: Sisters of the Moon (Tomb of Sargeras)

Background

The Sisters of the Moon served as wardens for the temple long before the avatar of Sargeras
was buried beneath it. Even in death, the sisters maintained their vigil, but over the millennia
something twisted their ability to distinguish friend or foe. Their madness slowly consumed
them, and now any who enter their sacred chambers are put to death.
