More Skaven Bosses Revealed

We recently found out that the new Skaven zone is actually a RvR dungeon.  What would a dungeon be if there were not bosses to fight?  In an interview, Carrie mentioned that one of the bosses is Throt the Unclean.  I did a little digging and found out some more details, including who some of the other bosses are.

DISCLAIMER:  All of this should be treated as a rumor.  The information could be old, just tests, something they abandoned or changed their minds on.  None of this may ever be seen on the live servers.  It is all unverified by Mythic. 

Here is just some of what is in store for us in the Skaven RvR dungeon.

Throt the Unclean.  This Skaven Mutator has up to four Rat Ogres by his side.  They can be sent off to attack either realm. 

Example ability: Warpfluid Pool, an AoE effect which will snare players and debuff them in an unknown way.

Thanquol and Boneripper.  This pair of bosses includes the Grey Seer Thanquol and a Boneripper bodyguard. Both are considered bosses.

Example Ability: Reconstruction allows Thanquol to rebuild/rez the Boneripper.

Example #2: Groundsmash does AoE damage and a knockback, used by the Boneripper.

Warlock Engineer (Unknown Name).  Not much is known about this guy yet.   

Example ability:  Warp-Lightning Storm, a dangerous AoE attack to all within line of sight. 

A dungeon isn't usually all bosses, so here are some other Skaven denizens: Globadier, Moulder, Plague Monk, Solder Vermin and Gutter Runners.
