Concerning this boss in path 2:
Andal the Thug
Dogs don't do much so focus boss down.
Ice-spray: low-damage ticks (medium damage), chills?
AoE: high? damage.
I am pretty sure the "quaggan dogs" cause the icy AoE circles that slow you down (so you are easy prey for the attack of Andal). Taking one down first will reduce the chill effects in that room a lot, so you can kite better. The quaggans also cast at party members that retreat into the shallow water, which is tricky, as you can not see the red circles when you swim (as they are displayed on the ground).
Setting up a Storm Spirit in a corner or other AoE speed buffs help a lot to kill off your first foe. Once that is down, the rest is pretty easy.
When Andal is casting his cone of cold, evade/dodge backwards! He is too fast and will hit you with with more damage pulses when you dodge sideways. dodging backwards usually gets out out of range.
PS: Between Andal & the final boss is an under water paths with many Icebrood. Push forward if possible. I got the feeling some do respawn if you don't advance at a steady pace.
My team pulled quaggans separately and they did nothing but "stab".
Anyways I actually ran the paths today so info should be quite accurate now. :P
Perhaps the beast master casts more circles around his quaggans? We had a much easier fight taking out a quaggan first than concentrating on the beast master.
Even if not, other suggestions will make your adventure easier.
