Antorus, the Burning Throne Boss Guides » Antoran High Command Guide

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



Overview

Antoran High Command is the third boss in the raid, and is a three phase encounter. During this council style fight you will have one of three bosses active each phase, while the other two will use their special abilities while within the pods.

Heroic Changes

  • This fight does not contain Heroic specific mechanics, however a general increase in difficulty should be expected.

Strategy and Positioning

  • This encounter alternates which boss is active every 90 seconds. To better understand it, treat the encounter as 3 alternating Phases which are described below.

Pod Management
  • When the boss becomes active, the pod they jumped out of will become intractable.
  • Two players should be assigned per pod, because of the ever increasing damage preventing them from staying in the pod for the entire phase.
  • All the pods have a Chaos Pulse (Default Bind: 1) ability, which deals damage to the target, and increases their damage taken by 1%, stacking up to 15%. This debuff should be maintained on the active boss.
  • Each pod also has a unique ability (Default Bind: 2), based on which boss occupied it:
    • Pod 1 - Withering Fire: This is a delayed explosion on the target area, which deals damage and increases the damage taken on anyone hit by 25%. This ability does not affect the active boss, so it is best used on the active Fanatical Pyromancers.
    • Pod 2 - Felshield Emitter: This ability creates a shield that reduces 50% of the incoming fire damage of the targeted area for 10 seconds. The first 3 shields should be used to mitigate the damage of Fusillade near the second phase area, while the second set of 3 should be placed near the third phase area.
    • Pod 3 - Summon Disruptor Beacon: This ability summons a beacon that interrupts all adds in the affected area, as well as clearing any mines within 12 yards.

Phase 1: Admiral Svirax active until

Phase 2: Chief Engineer Ishkar
  • The raid should be stacked near the boss, making it easier to utilize the Felshield in mitigating the Fusillade damage.
  • Reinforcements will be spawned just like Phase 1, and should be dealt with in the same manner.

Phase 3: General Erodus
  • The raid should be loosely stacked near the boss, making it easier to utilize the Felshield in mitigating the Fusillade damage.
  • The boss should be moved towards a clear area of the room when Entorpic Mines spawn.

Strategies by Role

Hopefully these strategies and tips in our Antoran High Command guide will help you to defeat this encounter!

All Roles


DPS

  • Interrupt the Fanatical Pyromancers in Phase 1 and 2.
  • Make use of the increased damage taken debuff on the boss when it is capped at 15%.

Healers

  • The raid will be taking ever increasing damage due to Chaos Pulse, making healing cooldowns most valuable towards the end of the fight.
  • Tanks will be taking heavy damage between the first and second stack of Exploit Weakness.
  • If any mines are detonated, a healing cooldown might be required to keep the raid alive.

Tanks

  • Face the boss away from the raid, and make sure only the tank with aggro is standing in front of the active boss.
  • Use a defensive cooldown for Exploit Weakness, and be ready for heavy damage until the second stack is applied.
  • Tanks should taunt swap after two stacks of Exploit Weakness are applied to the main tank.
