- Overview – The Butcher attacks relentlessly, hacking at his foes with his dual implements of destruction. His main abilities seek to target large clumps of enemies, and positioning is key to handling and overcoming his attacks.
- Tanks –
[Heavy Handed] causes the Butcher to attack the player closest to his current target with a copy of all of his melee attacks. These attacks can be mitigated and avoided as usual. If another player is not close enough, the second attack will trigger on the primary target.
[The Tenderizer] will always hit. It cannot be dodged or parried, but it can be blocked.
[The Cleaver] will only apply its damage over time effect if the attack successfully lands on its target.
- Heavy Handed – All of the Butcher's standard auto attacks trigger a second attack on the next closest target within 5 yards. If no target is found, the primary target is struck again.
- The Cleaver – The Butcher's Cleaver cuts its victims down to the bone, causing them to bleed profusely over time. This effect stacks.
This attack will not apply its bleed component if it is avoided.
- The Tenderizer – The Butcher's Tenderizer hits his current target for significant Physical damage and increases the damage taken by further attacks made with the Tenderizer by 50%
This attack always hits.
- Meat Hook – The caster pulls in their target with a meat hook.
- Cleave – The Butcher targets the largest clump of players in melee range and strikes them for massive Physical damage. The damage is split between all targets in the clump.
Victims of Cleave are afflicted with Gushing Wounds.
- Bounding Cleave – When the Butcher reaches 100 Energy he begins the Bounding Cleave sequence by knocking all players back, then charging to a clump at range and cleaving targets within that clump.
- Gushing Wounds – The Butcher's blade causes the victim to bleed profusely for Physical damage for 10 sec. If the victim reaches 6 stacks they will perish instantly.

- Night-Twisted Cadaver – In Mythic Difficulty, Night-Twisted Cadavers will spawn and walk towards The Butcher in a final, vain attempt to slay him. When the Cadaver reaches The Butcher or when they walk near a player, they will Explode, leaving a pool of Pale Vitriol behind for the duration of the encounter.
