A look at Goroth, the first boss in the Tomb of Sargeras raid.

Tomb of Sargeras has a total of 10 bosses. We're looking at the first one.

For more details, feel free to pay our Goroth Strategy Guide a visit.

TL;DR Boss Guide

  • Throughout the encounter, Infernal SpikeInfernal Spikes will errupt from the ground, indicated by a crackling ground animation. Standing in the area causes damage, so don't stand in it. They are needed to mitigate damage from Infernal BurningInfernal Burning and Shattering StarShattering Star.
    • Infernal BurningInfernal Burning - when he casts it, you need to hide behind spikes, otherwise, you're dead.
    • Shattering StarShattering Star (indicated by a yellow arrow beneath Goroth) must be aligned to land on spikes.
    • If you have Crashing CometCrashing Comet on you, run away from the group, but don't get too close to spikes as this will destroy them and it might happen you will have no spikes to hide behind during Infernal BurningInfernal Burning.
    • Tanks beware of destroying Infernal SpikeInfernal Spikes with Burning ArmorBurning Armor.


As punishment for past failures, Goroth's flesh is marred with searing wounds. With every movement this behemoth makes, his flesh crackles and hisses with unending torment, a scourge he is happy to inflict upon those who oppose him.


Goroth continuously gains fel energy until he can unleash Infernal BurningInfernal Burning, decimating any enemy it hits. Use Infernal SpikeInfernal Spikes to survive Infernal BurningInfernal Burning and Shattering StarShattering Star.

      Rextroy is back with another video after soloing MOTHER on Normal difficulty. This time around, it took him 0.5 seconds to defeat Vectis. It's no longer possible to execute this, because the bug (or clever use of gameplay mechanics?) has been hotfixed.
      A buff that was supposed to reset after entering Uldir allowed him to one-shot Vectis with a single attack.

      Blizzard clarified that Brewfest trinkets should have item level 335 and they're working on a fix to bring them to the correct item level.
      Brewfest started today and trinkets from Coren Direbrew have been adjusted to level 120 and item level 289. It turns out this was not intended and the actual item level of Brewfest trinkets is supposed to be 335. A hotfix will be deployed to live realms soon to address the issue.
      Check out our Brewfest guide for more details!

      Hey guys! We're working on a fix at the moment to bring these items to the correct ilvl, which should be ilvl 335 at 120. This fix should also be retroactive, so if you got any of them already no worries ?

      Brewfest is here and we have no updates this year, only Coren Direbrew's trinkets have been adjusted for level 120.
      The event's Brewmaster achievement is required for What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been, so it must be completed if you're working on your Reins of the Violet Proto-Drake mount. Trinkets have been updated to ilvl 289 this year. Don't forget to queue up for Coren Direbrew every day for a chance to receive loot, mounts, and check out our Brewfest guide for more details!

      Do you love eating delicious faire food, drinking bountiful beverages, and riding rams around barrels of apples? Brewfest has arrived and you can do all that and more during this holiday.
      When: September 20–October 6
      Where: Outside Ironforge and Orgrimmar 
      Coren Direbrew is up to his usual tricks within Blackrock Depths, but characters levels 20-120 can put a stop to his brawling ways by hopping into the Group Finder (I). There just might be a Swift Brewfest Ram or Great Brewfest Kodo in your future!
      What do you get when you have everything? Use your Brewfest Prize Tokens to purchase some of the festive Brewfest items including: the Throwing Sausage, Gravil Goldbraid's Famous Sausage Hat, and Synthebrew Goggles XL. 
      The competing brewers from across Azeroth have made sure to bring along some great brews for you to sample, each with a cosmetic effect:
      T’Chali Voodoo Brewery – Spirit Spirits
      Gordok – Gordok Bock
      Thunderbrew – Storming Saison
      Drohn’s Distillery – Mannoroth’s Blood Red Ale
      Barleybrew – Shimmer Stout

      Alliance players have contributed enough resources and can queue up for the Battle for Stromgarde Warfront for the first time to claim their ilvl 370 reward.
      For the next 7 days, Alliance players will be able to queue up for the Battle for Stromgarde Warfront and fight against the Horde AI. Defeat the Commander to get the War is Hell achievement and a once-per-cycle ilvl 370 reward.
      If you're not able to click the War Table in Boralus, make sure to complete the quick intro quest to unlock Warfronts (Warfront: The Battle for Stromgarde).
      The minimum item level requirement to queue up for the Warfront is 320. You'll receive a piece of ilvl 340 loot that can titanforge every time you complete the Warfront. You can't get rings or trinkets from Warfronts at this time.
      The Horde still controls Arathi Highlands and have access to the world boss, quests, and rares. You can find more details here. In 7 days, Alliance will control the zone and the second Horde contribution phase begins.

      Two G'huun kills in one day, with Limit's coming some 6 hours after Method's World First, it seems that lockout extension decision was indeed what cost the US guild the No.1 spot. We also got nerdscreams from both guilds for the entire raid, wipe counts from Method for the kill and more info!
      Yesterday was the highlight of the Uldir Mythic progress race, as we got our final World First and Method claimed their 10th trophy.

      (You can also check out the stream cut of Method's WF video,
      kill clip and more in our previous post.)
      It all came down to Limit's decision to extend their lockout, due to having sub 1% tries and feeling that Method was closing in on them and would get the kill on Tuesday while Limit were re-clearing. They bet wrong, as Method's best try was at 4% before the re-clear and Limit spent a whole day hitting their head against the G'huun wall after their reset, only getting new gear from the weekly Mythic+ chest, some Heroic kills and whatever M+ dungeons they could run. It simply wasn't enough and they remained on their best 1% try, aka the 639k HP one. They did push insanely hard on their reset day, raiding until 6 in the morning and just coming up short.
      Meanwhile the EU reset arrived and Method took quite a while to re-clear, taking around 7 hours to down 7/8 Mythic, as well as do a Heroic run. Fully geared up they immediately got their best try ever on G'huun, after 2 pulls, getting him down to 1.8%. It seemed all done at that point, as Limit were still sleeping and/or had to go to work, and Exorsus hadn't downed Mythrax after the reset. However, it took quite a while longer for Method to get that killing blow, as they struggled for just under 3 hours to get that 8/8. Considering how much farther along Limit were, the fact that they had more time on G'huun and the timing of their reset, it's almost 100% certain that they would have gotten the World First on Tuesday had they just re-cleared the raid.
      They actually managed to get the kill, even without the extra gear, some 6+ hours after Method. Here are both guilds' killshots:

      The other big news here is that Limit announced they'd be raiding full-time in the next raid, meaning the competition will be a lot fiercer and Method have to watch their backs:
      You should also read all of the recent tweets by @maximimwow, as he goes into a lot of the details of the race, including Limit's time commitments etc.
      And so we have the top 2 locked in after a grueling 9 days of progression, with no one else having managed to get the big blob down. We did get some wipe counts for the raid as well, from Method's Deepshades:
      So Fetid Devourer was almost the second hardest boss of the raid, with Mythrax coming in some 50 pulls later and G'huun properly being the endboss that he was supposed to be. The amount of pulls it took after the reset was around 20 or so (from memory) so the extra gear was key for everything, making it that much more impressive that Limit even managed to get a kill at all without that second reset's work of Mythic Uldir loot.
      In closing, we just want to congratulate both guilds on an amazing performance and thank Method for making it this entertaining to follow the race. The amount of tension and excitement in the final day of the race was so high thanks to the stream, and it can only get better from here as we potentially see both or even all guilds stream their progress live from now on. With Method's streams being the No.1 and 2 on all of Twitch and WoW being the top game for almost the entire time of streaming, as well as all the Method streams combined having a grand total of over 250 THOUSAND viewers, the raid progress race is one of the most watched WoW esport events ever and it's only going to get bigger in the future!
      We'll continue covering the other G'huun kills as they come in, but we wanted to thank you for following our coverage and thank Method again for their live coverage as well as the streams. The next raid, Siege of Zuldazar, sounds like a bit of a departure from the usual ones, so the race will be extra interesting as well.
