Tomb of Sargeras Boss Guides » Fallen Avatar Guide

Fallen Avatar is an encounter in the Tomb of Sargeras raid in World of Warcraft. Our strategy guide will help you to defeat Fallen Avatar encounter and the loot listing below contains all of the loot they drop on each difficulty.



Positioning

  • In Phase 1, one tank will be holding the Fallen Avatar, while the other tank will be moving the Maiden of Valor to block the beam from the green pylon going to the boss
  • A tank must always be in melee range of the boss, otherwise he will hit the entire raid
  • The raid needs to be spread across the room during both phases
  • In Phase 2, tank the boss near the edge of the platform to minimize the destruction from Rupture Realities


Strategies by Role

Hopefully these strategies and tips in our Fallen Avatar guide will help you to defeat this encounter!

All Roles

Phase 1
  • The boss will transition to Phase 2 when he reaches 100 energy, at this point he will heal in proportion to how much health the Maiden of Valor has
  • Keeping the boss in Phase 1 until the Maiden of Valor is dead, which will happen after four rounds of Cleansing Protocols, is crucial to having a successful Phase 2
  • The Containment Pylon can only be soaked by the Maiden of Valor, so the tank needs to always move her to where the green beam is
  • If targeted by Unbound Chaos, run until the debuff runs out and avoid standing in the green puddles it leaves behind
  • If targeted by Shadowy Blades, run to the edge of the room
  • When the boss is casting Rupture Realities, run away from him, because it does fall off damage

Phase 2
  • When the boss casts Rupture Realities, run away from him, because he will destroy part of the platform around him
  • Help players targeted by the Dark Mark by standing near them to split the damage taken

DPS

  • When the Maiden of Valor reaches 100 energy, her shield needs to be quickly damaged off to interrupt her cast
  • Always damage the boss unless the Maiden of Valor is at 100 energy

Healers

  • Tanks will be taking large amount of damage when at two stacks of Desolate
  • The raid will take large AOE damage when Rupture Realities is cast

Tanks

  • Taunt swap when one of the tanks is at two stacks of Desolate
  • Use a larger cooldown for the second application of Desolate
  • In Phase 2, after the boss casts Rupture Realities, quickly move him out of the lava


Fallen Avatar Abilities

When Aegwynn defeated the Avatar of Sargeras, she was unable to destroy his avatar. In an effort to seal it away, the armor was entombed beneath the Temple of Elune, where it remained dormant for hundreds of years. Now, with the Legion tearing down the tomb's barriers, Kil'jaeden is in a position to reanimate the armor and unleash its power on Azeroth.

  • Overview - Players begin the encounter facing the Fallen Avatar and Maiden of Valor. The Fallen Avatar, trapped in titan machinery, assaults the players from his location while the now corrupted Maiden of Valor also attacks. As the encounter progresses, Containment Pylons activate around the room pouring energy into the Fallen Avatar. The Maiden of Valor can absorb this energy. At 100 Energy, she casts |Hspell: 233,856|h[Cleansing Protocol]|h, expending all of her energy. If allowed to reach 100 Energy, the Fallen Avatar shatters the floor, dropping players into the chamber below. Free from the titan machinery, the Fallen Avatar now becomes fully mobile. Thanks to the infusion of fel energy from the Containment Pylons, the Fallen Avatar's |Hspell: 235,572|h[Rupture Realities]|h now shatters the ground below him until the platform is completely destroyed.
  • Stage One: A Slumber Disturbed - Locked into an ancient titan device, the Fallen Avatar struggles to regain his full power by corrupting the machinery around him.
    • Touch of Sargeras - The Fallen Avatar creates 5 shadowy fissures. Each fissure erupts after 8 sec, inflicting 6,070,000 Shadow damage to all players in the fisure divided evenly. Each of these fissures that is not absorbed inflicts 3,175,000 Shadow damage to all players instead.
    • Rupture Realities - The Fallen Avatar unleashes a blast of fel energy inflicting 6,610,000 Fire damage to all players. Players farther from the Fallen Avatar take less damage.
    • Unbound Chaos - Every 0.5 sec the target marks their current location. After 1.5 sec, the marked location explodes inflicting 464,500 Chaos damage to all players within 5 yards.
      In addition, the target erupts with Chaos Flames causing them to suffer 100,000 Chaos damage every 0.5 sec for 4 sec.
    • Shadowy Blades - The Fallen Avatar summons forth 7 blades that speed towards random targets. Each player hit by a blade creates a pool of Lingering Darkness and causes an explosion, inflicting 1,785,000 Shadow damage to the target and all players within 7 yards.
      • Lingering Darkness - Impact with a Shadowy Blade creates a viscous pool that inflicts 464,000 Shadow damage every 2 sec and reduces movement speed by 50% while within the pool.
    • Shadowy Blades - The Fallen Avatar summons forth 3 blades that speed towards random targets. Each player hit by a blade causes an explosion, inflicting 714,000 Shadow damage to the target and all players within 10 yards.
    • Desolate - Inflicts 4,000,000 Physical damage and increases damage taken from Desolate by 50% for 29 sec.
      This effect stacks.
    • Consume - Upon reaching 100 Energy, the Fallen Avatar consumes the remaining life essence from the Maiden of Valor, healing himself proportional to the health she has remaining.
    • Ripple of Darkness - Inflicts 535,500 Shadow damage to all enemies.
      This attack is only used by the Fallen Avatar whenever he is not actively engaged in melee combat.
    • Maiden of Valor -
      • Cleansing Protocol - Upon reaching 100 Energy, the Maiden of Valor places a shield upon herself absorbing 25% of her maximum health and begins casting Cleansing Protocol. At the completion of the cast, she inflicts 7,140,000 Fire damage to all players.
        Depleting the absorb shield triggers a Malfunction.
        • Malfunction - Inflicts 25% of the Maiden of Valor's maximum health to herself and she becomes stunned for 4 sec, interrupting all casts.
      • Matrix Empowerment - The Maiden of Valor becomes empowered while standing within the matrix, increasing Physical damage done by 5%. This effect stacks while she remains in the matrix.
    • Containment Pylon -
      • Corrupted Matrix - Upon activating, a Containment Pylon sends a beam of corrupted power at the Fallen Avatar causing it to gain energy every sec for 40 sec.
        The Maiden of Valor can intercept the beam causing her to gain energy instead.
      • Tainted Matrix - A tainted pylon activates and begins to channel shadowy energy into the Fallen Avatar, increasing his energy generation.
        The Maiden of Valor refracts the shadowy beam to all players if she stands within it, inflicting 2,500,000 Shadow damage to all players every 2 sec.
        If a player stands between the pylon and the Fallen Avatar the beam is redirected to them. Standing within the beam inflicts 350,000 Shadow damage every 1.5 sec.
        In addition, the target is afflicted with Tainted Essence. This effect intensifies every 2 sec while standing within the beam.

        • Tainted Essence - Reduces healing and shields received by 10%. This effect stacks.
          At 10 applications, the target is slain.
  • Stage Two: An Avatar Awakened - Upon reaching 100 Energy the Avatar shatters his bonds, destroying the platform and dropping players deeper into the Tomb of Sargeras.
    • Dark Mark - The Fallen Avatar brands a target causing them to unleash shadowy energy after 6 sec, inflicting 6,350,000 Shadow damage divided evenly to all players within 8 yards of the target, and knocking them into the air.
    • Rupture Realities - The Fallen Avatar unleashes a blast of fel energy, inflicting 3,570,000 Fire damage to all players and shattering the ground below him. Players farther from the Fallen Avatar take less damage.
    • Desolate - Inflicts 4,000,000 Physical damage and increases damage taken from Desolate by 50% for 29 sec.
      This effect stacks.
    • Black Winds - Summons forth chaotic storms of darkness that traverse the platform. Touching a storm inflicts 2,500,000 Shadow damage and reduces all healing and absorbs received by 90% for 10 sec.
    • Sear - Waves of heat emanate from the Fallen Avatar inflicting 143,000 Fire damage to all players every 2 sec.
      • Fel Infusion - While the Fallen Avatar stands in lava, the damage of Sear is permanently increased by 50% every 2 sec.
    • Rain of the Destroyer - The Fallen Avatar calls comets of felflame down onto the platform, inflicting 893,000 Fire damage to players within 300 yards of each impact.
      Impacts that are not absorbed cause the platform under them to shatter, inflicting 571,500 Fire damage to all players, knocking them back.
