Svala Sorrowgrave: 315,000 - 431,392
Normal Strategy: Only thing this boss does is at certain points in the fight she'll fly up into the air and put a person on her altar. Then she summons 3 weak enemies that hold the person in place with a purple beam. You have to kill all 3 of these wraiths to free the person before the sword comes down on the person and inflicts damage.
Heroic Strategy: Same as Normal.

Normal Strategy: On normal this boss activates two adds, then you kill him. He's a simple tank and spank.
Heroic Strategy: On Heroic this boss activates all four adds, then you kill him. He's a simple tank and spank.
Skadi the Ruthless: 252,000 - 431,392
Normal Strategy: When you approach Skadi and his dragon they will fly up into the air and start a Gauntlet style event. Waves of enemies will run at you and fill the path up. Run at them and collect about half of them, kill them all then move up and collect the other half. Be sure to kill the Harpooner's because they drop the Harpoons that you need to shoot at the dragon, via the harpoon guns at the end of the path.
Once you fire enough harpoons at the dragon it will die and Skadi will unmount. Pick Skadi up quickly and tank him. The only move he does thats note able is a whirlwind attack which hurts.
