General Information

Welcome to our World of Warcraft encounter guide for Antoran High Command in Antorus, the Burning Throne. We will teach you everything you need to know to defeat the boss in every difficulty.

On this particular page, we will give you a short overview of the fight as well as a list of things to watch out for (include LFR tips when applicable).

The other pages of our Antoran High Command guide can be accessed from the table of contents on the right.



To make it easy to navigate the guide, we have split it into 3 pages:



The Antoran High Command, comprised of Admiral Svirax, Chief Engineer Ishkar, and General Erodus, is the third encounter housed within Antorus, the Burning Throne.

Long ago in the golden age of eredar civilization, a council was formed to oversee the defense of Argus and maintain peace. But after their dark bargain was struck with Sargeras, these master tacticians used their military expertise to help orchestrate a Burning Crusade that ravaged countless worlds.

Now the full might of the Legion's army is theirs to command, and they wield this terrible power to annihilate all who oppose the Dark Titan's will.



The Antoran High Command is technically a single phase encounter, however it features three bosses that will engage the raid alone at separate times throughout the fight, breaking it into three distinct pseudo-phases. All three bosses share a health pool.





  • Perform a taunt swap at 2 stacks of Exploit Weakness Icon Exploit Weakness.
  • Stand behind the boss when not actively tanking to avoid gaining stacks from Exploit Weakness Icon Exploit Weakness.
  • Face all three bosses away from the group at all times.


  • Have cooldowns coordinated for Fusillade Icon Fusillade impacts, when General Erodus is active.
  • Players inside the pod will be taking increasing ticking damage over time and will need immense surgical healing.


  • Stack inside Felshield Emitter Icon Felshield Emitter during Fusillade Icon Fusillade casts, when Chief Engineer Ishkar is active.
  • Organize players to take advantage of the vacant Commanders' pods while they are engaging the raid.
  • Interrupt Fanatical Pyromancer's Pyroblast Icon Pyroblast whenever possible.
  • Get at least 8 yards away from allies when afflicted with Shock Grenade Icon Shock Grenades (Mythic only).
  • Focus down Screaming Shrikes as soon as they appear (Mythic only).


  • Each Commanders' pod is in a separate third of the room. All bosses should be tanked roughly where they spawn after vacating their pod.
  • Ranged DPS and Healers should never go deeper into the room than the current boss' area (a third of the room) or they risk littering a future area with Entropic Mine Icon Entropic Mines.
  • Stack inside the Felshield Emitter Icon Felshield Emitter during Fusillade Icon Fusillades when Chief Engineer Ishkar is active.
  • Use Summon Disruptor Beacon Icon Summon Disruptor Beacon to clear Entropic Mine Icon Entropic Mines.
Antorus Antoran High Command Positioning

Bloodlust/Heroism/Time Warp

We advise you to use Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust/Heroism Icon Heroism/Time Warp Icon Time Warp when General Erodus is active ("Phase Three"). This is the highest risk phase and damage taken will be at its maximum; Bloodlust/Heroism fulfills a dual function here as both a means to finish the encounter as soon as possible and as a much needed boost to healing. Bloodlust can alternately be used immediately on the pull for a slight boost in overall damage output efficiency.
