Vatlaaw Doomtooth is a Charr ranger boss who first appears in Lakeside County to the south of Ashford during the quest Trouble in the Woods. He spawns on the left side of the road towards Regent Valley, near where the citizens are standing (before you start the quest), and escapes into Regent Valley when approached. He used The Catacombs to traverse across Ascalon unseen, where he had lost a tooth to Oberan the Reviled's undead, as explained during the quest Charr in the Catacombs.
Defeating Vatlaaw is also the final objective to completing the Ascalon Academy mission, and upon defeating him and his party you trigger a cinematic depicting the Searing. You are then transported to Old Ascalon after a two-year time jump forward.
- Ascalon (pre-Searing)
- During Trouble in the Woods, it is actually possible to kill Vatlaaw. See the quest page for details.
- Vatlaaw Doomtooth uses both Ignite Arrows and Barrage. Barrage will remove Ignite Arrows when used.
- Vatlaaw Doomtooth is also one of only two enemies in pre-Searing who has an elite skill. The other is Bill, the Rogue Bull. Despite them having elite skills, due to the timeline within the game, you cannot use a Signet of Capture on either of them.
