How To Start Feltotem's Fall

This Mage Tower challenge will only be available during Legion Timewalking events, the first of which will begin on December 7th, 2021 (December 8th for European, Korean, and Taiwanese realms). The challenge can be attempted as many times as you want, and there is no minimum gear requirement. To begin Feltotem's Fall, you must be playing one of the following specializations:

To begin this challenge, you need to visit War Councilor Victoria on the Broken Shore (coords. 45, 62). If you have your Dalaran Hearthstone Icon Dalaran Hearthstone, you can get there very easily. If you do not have your Dalaran Hearthstone, go to Orgrimmar/Stormwind and take the portal to Azsuna to fly to the Broken Shore.


Gear Considerations for the Mage Tower

The effects below will not function within the Timewalking Mage Tower event:

  • Any Covenant-related effects (Covenant Ability, Signature Ability, Soulbinds, Conduits)
  • Legendary Powers from Shadowlands or Legion (the items will still provide stats, their equip effects will not)
  • Legendary items from Questlines (Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve Icon Ashjra'kamas, Shroud of Resolve, Warlords of Draenor Legendary Rings, Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest Icon Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest, Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings Icon Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings)
  • Any Shards of Domination
  • Any Battle for Azeroth systems (Azerite Gear, Traits, Essences)
  • Any tier set bonuses
  • Mists of Pandaria Legendary Meta Gems

You should also keep in mind that all items are scaled to item level 50 in the Mage Tower. This means that your item level is completely irrelevant, and that all that matters is the quality of the items you are bringing. This also means that sockets have exceptional value in Mage Tower Challenges.

Feltotem's Fall Mage Tower Strategy Guide

The fight consists of two phases. During Phase 1, you will kill Tugar Bloodtotem while bringing down the health of his pet worm, Jormog the Behemoth, as much as possible in preparation for Phase 2 where you will fight Jormog alone while its damage is buffed.

Jormog the Behemoth begins the fight with 9 stacks of Fel Hardened Scales Icon Fel Hardened Scales, reducing its damage taken by 10% per stack. There is a way to remove these stacks, and once a significant amount of stacks have been removed, it is worth keeping Tugar and Jormog close so that you can cleave them both in Phase 1.


Phase 1

In Phase 1, you will kill Tugar Bloodtotem while interrupting his Fel Burst Icon Fel Burst ability every time it is cast, and cleaving down Jormog the Behemoth. You can use stuns to interrupt it as well. In addition, you will have to deal with a few other mechanics:

  • Earthquake Icon Earthquake causes brown circles to spawn where rocks will fall from the ceiling that stay on the ground. Stand near the rocks to bait Jormog's Jormog's Fury Icon Jormog's Fury ability to them. If he hits a rock, it will remove a stack of his Fel Hardened Scales Icon Fel Hardened Scales buff that gives him reduced damage taken.
  • Step out of the "X" pattern of green circles when they spawn.
  • Avoid casting spells when Jormog the Behemoth casts Sonic Scream Icon Sonic Scream to avoid getting silenced. You can also stun this cast to stop it from going off, but we generally recommend saving stuns for Fel Burst Icon Fel Bursts and only using stuns to interrupt Sonic Scream when Tugar is dead.
  • You will also take damage from Fel Shock Icon Fel Shock and Fel-Infused Saliva Icon Fel-Infused Saliva, but these are unavoidable and should be self-healed through.
  • Kill the Bile Spitter Eggs before their cast finishes. If their cast finishes, kill the Bile Spitter that spawns. The add's health is based on the remaining health of the eggs.
  • Kill Fel Surge Totems before their cast finishes, or you will be stunned for 4 seconds. They can easily be oneshot, and it is worth making a macro that targets and kills them with a simple, instant-cast ability of your class. We have posted an example below.
  • /tar Fel Surge Totem
  • /use Cobra Shot
  • /targetlasttarget

Your choice of when to kill Tugar will depend a lot on your specialization and the quality of your gear. In any case, you should never kill Tugar before all 9 stacks of Fel Hardened Scales Icon Fel Hardened Scales have been removed from Jormog. The higher Jormog's health is when Tugar dies, the tougher it will be to kill Jormog before his damage overwhelms you. On the other hand, the fight is drastically simplified when Tugar dies, so you will have to find the best trade-off of DPS requirement and mechanical difficulty for you.


Phase 2

Phase 2 begins when Tugar Bloodtotem dies and dramatically simplifies the fight. During this phase, you will fight Jormog the Behemoth while he does his Fel-Infused Saliva Icon Fel-Infused Saliva and Sonic Scream Icon Sonic Scream abilities that deal heavy damage to you. Due to Fel Rage Icon Fel Rage, these will deal 150% more damage, increasing even more over time. Use Drums of Deathly Ferocity Icon Drums of Deathly Ferocity and DPS cooldowns to kill Jormog as quickly as possible before you run out of self-sustain here.
