Background and Initial Positioning
  • Last seen during the Broken Isles scenario, this mighty foe has recovered from his injuries and stands at the end of the Shattered Walkway.
  • This fight is a relatively straight-forward yet demanding DPS check.
  • As the fight progresses, Krosus will destroy the bridge players are standing on, setting a hard enrage timer at 6 minutes. The fight has no phases.
  • Pull Krosus at the only place you can, with melee DPS and tanks taking care not to run off the front of the bridge.

Abilities and Mechanics
  • Searing Brand
    • This ability is the tank-swap mechanic of the encounter and a stacking DoT effect.
    • Tanks should swap between 9-11 stacks of the debuff, although more can be taken if one tank is engaged with other mechanics.
  • Isolated Rage
    • Krosus remains static at the end of the bridge and expects his enemies to come to him. If he has no possible target, he does raid-wide damage.
  • Slam
    • Krosus will telegraph slamming his hands down onto the bridge. Two indicators demarcate where his fists will land.
    • When he connects, raid-wide damage is dealt. Having the tanks soak the fists reduces this damage.
    • On the 3rd Slam, the entire fractured section falls away. Every 3rd Slam should not be soaked, as players will fall into the water below and die.
    • The 12th Slam destroys the entirety of the bridge, constituting the hard enrage timer.
  • Burning Pitch
    • Between the 1st and 2nd Slams and before a full segment of bridge falls away, Krosus will cast Burning Pitch, indicated by green swirls.
    • Players should stand in these indicators and soak the moderate damage.
    • Unsoaked Burning Pitch forms a Burning Ember on impact. The adds cast Felblast at random targets. These are high-priority adds that should be killed quickly if allowed to spawn.
  • Orb of Destruction
    • Krosus targets a player, denoted by a green indicator over their character.
    • After 5 seconds, the spell deals heavy raid damage. A player’s damage is reduced the farther they are from the Orb.
    • Targeted players should run as far from the raid as possible during the warning time. The damage becomes more and more punishing as the fight progresses and the bridge shortens.
  • Fel Beam
    • Similar to Helya’s breath from Maw of Souls, Krosus will telegraph a heavy beam attack that will target either the left or right half of the bridge.
    • He will indicate which side of the bridge he is attacking by lifting the corresponding hand.

Having recovered from his wounds, Krosus emerges from the bay between the Nighthold and the Tomb of Sargeras to crush any who would oppose the Legion.

  • Overview - Players encounter Krosus on a broken section of bridge. Over the course of the encounter, Krosus smashes sections of the bridge, forcing players to retreat into a dwindling space. If Krosus is not defeated in time, players will be left with no foothold, and will plunge into the sea and perish.
    • Damage Dealers -
      • If afflicted with Orb of Destruction, move as far away from other players as possible.
      • Catch nearby Burning Pitch to prevent Burning Embers from being summoned.
      • Do not stand near tanks during Slam
    • Healers -
      • If afflicted with Orb of Destruction, move as far away from other players as possible.

    • Tanks -
      • Catch nearby Burning Pitch to prevent Burning Embers from being summoned.
      • Stand under Krosus' fists during Slam to absorb the force of the blow.
  • Searing Brand - Krosus periodically places a brand on his current target that inflicts 62,500 Fire damage every 1 sec. for 20 sec. This effect stacks.
  • Fel Beam - Krosus emits a beam of fel energy from one of his hands inflicting 1,965,000 Fire damage to all enemies within the effect.
  • Orb of Destruction - Krosus lobs an orb of fel energy at a target that impacts after 5 sec inflicting 2,140,000 Fire damage. Allies farther from the impact take less damage.
  • Burning Pitch - Krosus unleashes blasts of molten lava from his shoulders. Each glob of lava inflicts 536,000 Fire damage to all enemies within 3 yards upon landing. If the Burning Pitch does not impact a player a Burning Ember is formed.
    • Burning Ember -
      • Felblast - Fires a blast of felflame at a random target that inflicts 500,000 Fire damage.
      • Felburst - Fires a bolt of felfire at a random target that explodes upon impact inflicting 607,500 Fire damage to all enemies within 5 yards of the detonation.
      • Accelerate - Krosus accelerates the decay of a random Burning Ember causing it to gain 10 energy every 1.3 sec.
        • Burnout - Upon reaching 100 energy the Burning Ember explodes inflicting 2,250,000 Fire damage to all players.
  • Slam - Krosus slams his fists into the bridge creating a shockwave that inflicts 1,250,000 Physical damage to all players.
    Players standing under his fists take 1,610,000 Physical damage. If both fists are absorbed in this way, the damage to all other players is reduced to 1,350,000 Physical damage.
  • Isolated Rage - Inflicts 214,500 Physical damage to all enemies every 0.5 sec.
    This attack is only used by Krosus whenever he is not actively engaged in melee combat.
