It's time for some more insanely long solo boss fights, this time in Antorus, as Rextroy takes his sweet time soloing Kin'garoth in Normal mode with his Protection Paladin. 7 hours for the kill, 35 gold on the corpse and a copious amount of cheese in the strat, mostly featuring adds!

Important talents and items: Holy Shield (essential)
Riftworld Codex (survival)
Artifact Relic procced dmg
Hidden Satyr neck enchant
DMG proc trinket

What is going on?!
Phase 1: Whenever adds spawn, they will be aggroed onto you. However by staying outside the arena at the location shown in the video, they will be unable to find a path to you. This leads to them evading as you saw in the beginning. Thankfully, when they evade. The boss won't despawn. The adds will just go back to their spawning point until a second add spawns at their location.

This causes the second, newly spawned add to go "Don't just stand there, go get that pally!" This causes the first add (since it can't find a path) to TP to you and start attacking. The good thing with this is that the boss encounter will go on. Usually it resets whenever an add leave the boss room, but not if they leave the room by teleportation.

After that you have to clear the adds, which is easier said than done. Demolishers are prio target since their Demolish really hurts. You want a defensive up for each Demolish. It is a lot about rotating CDs here, Riftworld Codex (trinket) really helps your survival.

The boss will berserk after 12,5 minutes. Usually the adds will also recieve the berserk, but it appears that the berserk is an aura for the boss. Adds being outside the encounter area will outrange it. This makes you able to clear all the adds without dying.

Phase 2:
So you killed all the adds... but the boss will stop spawning them after awhile, once you gotten him to 46% HP there won't be any adds left to attack.... From this point you will have to rely on Holy Shield, trinkets and relics to damage the boss and finishing him off

They usually have a 100 yards range. Boss will still go into his Construction phase, causing him to take 99% less damage. My plan was to stay within 100 yards whenever he were able to take damage, and when the Construction phase started, I decided to go outside of my Holy Shields range, to preserve procs for next time. The boss is mainly threatening during the Construction phase, you want to rotate your CDs here. And use Ardent Defender each time.

This process of letting your relics, trinkets, neck enchant, holy shield finish the boss takes awhile. Depending on how many sources of damage you have ready. I Went with Holy Shield / 2x Relics for damage / 1x trinket / neck enchant. I could have taken a second trinket and a third relic to speed it up but... I felt Riftworld Codex was essential for phase 1 against the robots. I also didn't have a strong third relic with the proc.

Overall this encounter took about 7 hours. Glad I didn't DC...

Special thanks for helping me grind Oakheart's Gnarled Root (trinket!)

7 hrs? In the video 30% boss hp was 20 mins (Flask timer) and after that come multiple cuts. I don't really believe this fight was so long.

After 30%, he had no more adds to kill, so he had to kill it by the damage from holy shield when he gets damaged. I can imagine that taking 6+ hours, since it is insanely low DPS.

You do see the timer at the bottom right, right?

I think they were focusing more on the cuts in the video, aiming at saying that it was multiple attempts or so.

*Calls work* "Yeah boss, I need to take the day off, I have to kill Kingaroth.

"Dammit Johnson! That's like a 10 minute fight at worst, Get in here!"

"But sir, I have no friends!"

"Johnson, Kingaroth better take your entire shift"

I'm guessing he was probably pretty hungry after finishing, so cookies all round!

      Embers of War is a new cinematic released by Blizzard to go with Battle for Azeroth. It's a combination of all cinematics previewed so far including Bwonsamdi, Jaina's return to Kul Tiras, the Horde intro to Zandalar, and the final Battle for Lordaeron cutscene.
      Lines have been drawn between the Horde and Alliance, loyalties tested, and the war between the factions has begun in earnest. The race is on to recruit new allies and gather a new powerful resource – Azerite. Will you heed the call of battle?

      We have another interesting interview with Principal Exterior Level Designer Gary Platner and In-game Cinematic Project Director Terran Gregory by VG247. Check out the highlights!
      Check out the full interview over at VG247.
      Interview Highlights
      Alex Afrasiabi designed Battle for Azeroth like it would be the last expansion; they didn't hold back, went for the mega, and seized the day on design. Terran is really sad that gnomes didn't make an appearance in the cinematics, but CGI has its limitations to how many characters can be created. Siege of Lordaeron included more characters than any other Blizzard CGI film before. It's Blizzard's mission to tell the most compelling and emotional story that they can. Making everyone enjoy the story in the same way is an impossible goal. With the release of Warbringers: Sylvanas, Horde players started to show their discontent. There's even been one extreme case of targeted harassment aimed at Christie Golden. Creating a story that revolves around an all-out war required bold decisions. They knew the reactions to the burning of Teldrassil would be passionate, but they did exceed their expectations. Storytelling is about highs and lows. Old Soldier would not have resonated so well without Warbringers: Sylvanas. WoW is a living, breathing game. The team's always looking for ways to improve it. They'll support WoW for as long as the players continue to give them support. From a story perspective, they wondered how great an end WoW would need to have. It's an evergreen franchise that they've maintained like a "carefully-tended bonsai tree."
