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.

      A new week with new chances for beta keys!
      It's a new week and the perfect opportunity to give out a new batch of beta keys for Battle for Azeroth! This week, we're going to be putting multiple contests into certain news posts that discuss something WoW-related. Each post will act as a separate contest that users can enter, with a total of 4 going live on the forums and an additional 1 on Twitter.
      We understand that it can be tough to keep track of which contest is where, so this post will act as a homepage for the upcoming contests. You can check back here to see exactly which contests are live, what you have to do to enter and how many keys are being given away.
      Please note that you cannot enter any contests on this post directly; you will need to follow the link to the contest and enter there.
      Here is the list of this week's contests:
      [FORUM] Giveaway 1 - [Closed] All winners for G1 have been contacted by PM. [FORUM] Giveaway 2 - [Closed] All winners for G2 have been contacted by PM.

      We wish any entrants the best of luck in each giveaway they enter and hope that we'll see many of you enjoying the beta shortly after! For any questions you might have about this post or the giveaways, you can ask them in this thread and I will do my best to answer them promptly.

      So, we have another 25 beta keys to share with our community and we thought we'd go a little historical this time around, focusing on the raiding aspect of WoW. Since we do raid race coverage here at Icy Veins and have plenty of top raiders in our guide writing ranks, it only seems apt for us to try and find out which guild our community thinks was the best of all time.
      Personally, I'm clearly biased, as I used to play in Nihilum, who were at the very top for a while there at the start of WoW, but don't worry, all you have to do is actually vote and you'll be eligible for a key, there's no actual "correct" answer and we've also provided an option for those of you who don't know any of these guilds. And if you want to check some stats on the various guilds, just so you can get it right, you can head on over to Method's World Fist Timeline.
      So, let's see who comes out on top, and if you don't have a strong opinion on the matter, just go for the last poll answer! You can also check out out main giveaway thread as there will be one more this week or you can just keep an eye out on the frontpage!

      The Legion Companion App will serve as the main World of Warcraft mobile application from July 11 and onwards to Battle for Azeroth.
      After the retirement of the Remote Auction House, it is time to bid farewell to the WoW Mobile Armory App as well. Players will have a single mobile application, since the Legion Companion App will be converted into a new WoW Companion App, which will contain new features from Battle for Azeroth as well as favourite features from the original application (probably the guild chat).
      We just hope this application maintains its light size, unlike the Hearthstone game app!

      As of July 11, 2018, we will no longer be supporting the World of Warcraft Mobile Armory app. But this isn’t the end of the road, as we’re continuing to develop and improve our mobile offering for World of Warcraft.
      As a part of our commitment to providing WoW players with a living, connected experience on multiple fronts, we are transitioning away from the current World of Warcraft Mobile Armory app and will be converting the Legion Companion App into a new WoW Companion App in the future. As part of that, we’ll be incorporating many of your favorite World of Warcraft Armory app features along with features for Battle for Azeroth into a new shared app for a more streamlined experience. Stay tuned for more information.

      Reply to this thread with the Character name of your choice and don't forget to include your Class/Race/Specialization if applicable.  Be creative and make us laugh!

      Several redditors spotted a new entry in the beta/PTR event calendar, featuring the pre-expansion event. It's already started on the PTR and it's called the War of the Thorns, featuring conflict in Darkshore for control of Teldrassil. Now, we know how that particular "control" ends up, but hopefully the event itself won't be as fire-y!
      Also, based on the length of the event, it seems most likely we'll be seeing it come up on live servers on or around July 17th, if we assume it will last until the expansion launch itself, so we have a little over three and a half weeks until we see the pre-expansion event and the pre-patch itself as well! It's a little unclear if the Battle for Lordaeron will be part of the pre-patch or will be available at launch, so the date might actually be a little earlier since it seems logical that the events won't overlap, as one is caused by the other. so another possible date would be July 10th.

      Also, check out what you should do before the pre-patch goes live, as there are achievements to be had that will be removed.
