Antorus, the Burning Throne Boss Guides » Felhounds of Sargeras Guide

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



Overview

Felhounds of Sargeras are the second boss in the raid, with both bosses active. In general, fire abilities are best handled by spreading, while shadow abilities require stacking. Abilities cast are directly related to the bosses power bar, which fills at varying rates.

Heroic Changes

  • F’harg will periodically cast Molten Touch, which stuns and drags a random target towards him, while ejecting puddles of flames throughout the encounter area and stacking a fire damage dot on them.
  • Shatug will periodically cast Weight of Darkness, which progressively slows a random target, after which they are feared for 20 seconds, unless there are at least 3 players in their vacinity.
  • Heroic specific mechanics and abilities will be marked with throughout the guide.

Strategy and Positioning

  • The raid should be positioned halfway between the two bosses, with the melee attacking Shatug.
  • The bosses will cast special abilities at 33, 66, and 100% energy.
  • The energy bars do not fill at steady rates, which creates some difficult ability overlaps.

Shatug
  • 33% - Consuming Sphere: Run away from it, because it deals proximity damage. Movement speed cooldowns such as Stampeding Roar are great in this situation.
  • 66% - Weight of Darkness: People who are affected by the debuff should stack with at least two other players to split the damage and negate the fear. Immunities, or fear breaking abilities can also be used to solo it.
  • 100% - Siphon Corruption: During this ability, players in the raid will be periodically affected with Siphoned, which causes them to pulse Shadow damage that splits with nearby targets. It is best to stack up during this, making it easier for healers to keep everyone alive.

F’harg
  • 33% - Desolate Gaze: A few players in the raid will be marked, creating a line of fire. It is best to move out of the group when this ability happens, and avoid overlapping multiple lines.
  • 66% - Molten Touch: Stunned players will shoot fire circles throughout the room, which need to be avoided. It is best to be spread during this ability making it easier to notice when there is fire under you.
  • 100% - Enflame Corruption: Players in the raid will be affected with Enflamed, which i best handled by either moving away from other players raid prior to the debuff expiring, or the raid being pre spread, making it less likely that multiple players will clip each other with the ability.

Strategies by Role

Hopefully these strategies and tips in our Felhounds of Sargeras guide will help you to defeat this encounter!

All Roles

  • Avoid standing in front of the bosses
  • Weight of Darkness targets can utilize the melee group to split the damage taken
  • If Weight of Darkness affects the F’harg tank, then at least two mobile ranged players should run over to him to prevent the fear.
  • Defensive cooldowns, and immunities are best used during ability overlaps.
  • Utilize movement cooldowns such as Stampeding Roar to quickly reposition the raid when a fire ability follows a shadow ability.

DPS

  • The bosses share health, so multi dotting classes excel on this fight.
  • The melee dps should be attacking Shatug.
  • The ranged dps have the option of attacking either boss.

Healers

  • Targets affected by Molten Touch will take a large amount of damage, requiring direct healing.
  • Healing cooldowns are best utilized during ability overlaps, or when the a boss reaches 100% energy.
  • Tanks will take heavy damage when affected by the Burning Maw or Corrupting Maw debuff.

Tanks

  • The bosses need to be tanked at least 40 yards apart, to prevent enrage.
  • Either Burning Maw or Corrupting Maw will be applied to to tanks in a frontal cone, so make sure that the bosses are facing away from the raid.
  • Taunt swapping is NOT required, because there are times within the fight when the dot falls off.
