Hellfire Assault LFR Guide - Hellbreach (WoD 6.2)

Last updated on Jul 02, 2015 at 16:12 by Azortharion

Table of Contents

The Hellfire Assault in Hellfire Citadel is an encounter where you primarily face adds that continuously spawn. Once you have done this for some time, the boss is defeated.

This short guide will provide you with all the necessary information to succeed in the Looking for Raid version of the fight. We divide the tasks that need to be complete by roles (tank, healer, and DPS), so you can check only the section that is relevant to you. Be sure to check out our detailed guide for more information about the Normal, Heroic, and Mythic versions.

Note that on this page, we only list those tasks that you must complete in order to defeat the encounter. This means that several abilities are left out on purpose, because they are not problematic enough in LFR to justify worrying about. In general, however, you should always make sure to move out of damaging ground effects, and to interrupt any spell casts you can.

1. Tanks

  • Quickly gain aggro on the adds that continuously spawn. The various siege vehicles that spawn throughout the fight do not need to be tanked.
  • Perform a tank switch when Slam Icon Slam (applied by Hulking Berserkers) stacks to uncomfortably high levels.

2. Healers

  • Use healing cooldowns for Felfire Volley Icon Felfire Volley casts that go through.
  • Pick up and carry Felfire Munitions dropped by the various Felfire Siege Engines when they die. Take them to the Hellfire Cannons (located at the back of the encounter area) in order to restore their ammunition.
  • Dispel Conducted Shock Pulse Icon Conducted Shock Pulse.

3. Melee and Ranged DPS

  • DPS high priority targets first, in the following priority:
    1. Siegemaster Mar'tak (she leaves the fight at 50% health);
    2. Siege Vehicles;
    3. Gorebound Terrors;
    4. Gorebound Felcasters;
    5. Hulking Berserkers.
  • Pick up and carry Felfire Munitions dropped by the various Felfire Siege Engines when they die. Take them to the Hellfire Cannons (located at the back of the encounter area) in order to restore their ammunition.

4. ChangeLog

  • 02 Jul. 2015: Two updates based on doing the LFR fight on liveservers.
    • Slightly simplified the DPS target priority list to account for the fact that in LFR targets do not live very long.
    • Removed mention of restoring Hellfire Cannon ammunition via an extra action button (since this is not the case and their ammunition is restored as soon as a player with Felfire Munitions nears them).
