Antorus, the Burning Throne Boss Guides » Garothi Worldbreaker Guide

Garothi Worldbreaker is a boss in the Antorus, the Burning Throne raid in World of Warcraft. Our strategy guide will help you to defeat the Garothi Worldbreaker encounter and the loot listing below contains all of the loot he drops on each difficulty.



Overview

As the introductory boss to the raid, Garothi Worldbreaker does not have too many mechanics, instead relies on empowering them throughout the fight. When reaching 65% you will have two strategy options to choose from, which are outlined below.

Heroic Changes

  • During Apocalypse Drive, zones of Surging Fel will appear throughout the room.
  • Heroic specific mechanics and abilities will be marked with throughout the guide.

Strategy and Positioning

  • After Apocalypse Drive, the boss will cast Eradication, during which the raid needs to run away from the boss due to the fall-off damage.
  • A tank should always be in melee range of the boss.

Phase 1 (100-65%):
  • During Phase 1, both Annihilation and Decimation will go happen at intermediate times. Staying loosely spread will allow players to quickly move out with debuffs, or help soak the Annihilation puddles.

Phase 2 (65-25%):
  • Depending on your strategy you will have two positioning options:
    • If you have empowered Decimation, then create two stack points, one on the left side of the boss and one on the right side. The entire raid should start on one of the points, and alternate whenever the Decimation debuff goes out.
    • If you empowered Annihilation, then the raid should be loosely spread to make sure each puddle will be covered by a few people, or soloed by someone with an immunity.

Phase 3 (Below 25%):
  • This Phase is a large raid damage phase, and it is highly recommended to stack in front of the boss to make raid healing easier.

Strategies by Role

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

All Roles

  • Players affected by Decimation should run to the edges of the room until their debuff expires.
  • Annihilation circles should be soaked by a few players, depending on raid size, to prevent them from doing damage to the entire raid.
  • Killing one of the weapons during the first Apocalypse Drive will empower the remaining one.
  • Avoid standing in Surging Fel during Apocalypse Drive.

DPS

  • During Apocalypse Drive, either the Annihilator or the Decimator needs to be killed before his casts finishes. We recommend killing Annihilator first, because this will empower his Decimation ability.
  • After the second Apocalypse Drive, which happens at 25% the boss loses both of his abilities, but needs to be quickly killed due to the high raid damage.

Healers

  • After one of the boss weapons is killed, the boss will cast Eradication, which will deal a large burst of damage to the raid.
  • During Phase 3, there will be a very large amount of raid damage happening, which should be covered with healing cooldowns.

Tanks

  • The tank affected by Fel Bombardment need to run away from the boss, and keep moving until the boss is no longer shooting missiles.
  • When the tank is affected by Fel Bombardment, the second tank should taunt to make sure the boss has a target in melee range.

On Mythic difficulty, the fel reaver activates Apocalypse Drive at 65% and 35% health. Also, the cannons can no longer be destroyed, but instead go haywire, granting the cannons additional effects.
