The Felhounds of Sargeras, F'harg and Shatug, is the second encounter in Antorus, the Burning Throne. They must be defeated for the raid to progress and access the later bosses.

Infused with fire and shadow, F'harg and Shatug are the prized pets of Sargeras. Bred for carnage, these hounds delight in eviscerating their master's enemies.

With the Army of the Light and their allies advancing upon Antorus, the Legion prepares to unleash these vicious creatures onto the battlefield and put an end to the mortals' invasion.



The Felhounds of Sargeras is a single phase encounter. The raid will engage F'harg and Shatug, who share a health pool via their passive Soul Link Icon Soul Link. They must be kept apart, however, due to an additional passive they possess: Destroyer's Boon Icon Destroyer's Boon. Both Felhounds possess their own set of unique mechanics; F'harg attacks with Fire, while Shatug uses Shadow. While the encounter may appear simple at first take, the Felhounds can quickly become a chaotic battlefield due to the sheer number of abilities and their interactions.





  • Keep F'harg and Shatug at least 40 yards apart.
  • Keep the Felhounds faced away from the center of the room due to their frontal cleaves, Corrupting Maw Icon Corrupting Maw and Burning Maw Icon Burning Maw.
  • Have active mitigation and/or cooldowns ready for higher stacks of Decay Icon Decay and Smouldering Icon Smouldering.


  • Be ready with cooldowns and healing when Siphon Corruption Icon Siphon Corruption is active.
  • Pay special attention to the tanks during Burning Maw Icon Burning Maw and Corrupting Maw Icon Corrupting Maw.
  • Have surgical healing and/or light cooldowns ready for the target of Molten Touch Icon Molten Touch (Heroic+ only).


  • Multi DoT classes should maintain their damage on both Felhounds whenever possible.


  • If you are targeted by F'harg's Desolate Gaze Icon Desolate Gaze, try to aim it away from the group. The rest of the group should take care not to be in F'harg's path.
  • Avoid Shatug's Consuming Sphere Icon Consuming Spheres, as the damage received can quickly stack up due to Consumed Icon Consumed.
  • Spread out during Enflame Corruption Icon Enflame Corruption to avoid taking unnecessary damage from each other.
  • Help allies afflicted with Weight of Darkness Icon Weight of Darkness to avoid having them feared (Heroic+ only).


  • The melee should split themselves between the 2 bosses, and the ranged and healers should stack in the center of the room.
  • When F'harg is at 100 Energy and casts Enflame Corruption Icon Enflame Corruption the raid must spread out (8 yards) for the duration of this effect.
  • The Felhounds must be kept 40 yards apart, but they should not be much further, as this hampers multi-DoT potential.
  • Desolate Gaze Icon Desolate Gaze should always be aimed so F'harg travels along the edge of the arena.
  • As a general rule of thumb, players nearest F'harg should spread out while the players nearest Shatug should loosely clump.

Bloodlust/Heroism/Time Warp

We advise you to use Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust/Heroism Icon Heroism/Time Warp Icon Time Warp after both Felhounds are positioned properly on the pull. This allows for everyone to get in position and for multi-DoT classes to get their damage rolling. This should be no later than about 5 seconds into the encounter.
