Introduction

In this section you will find information pertaining to each boss individually. It is recommended you follow the standard talent build found in the Builds, Talents, and Glyphs section of the guide unless otherwise advised on a per boss basis. Much of the information is geared towards Mythic encounters, though it can be applied equally to the lesser difficulties.

1. Frost Mage Advice: Antorus, the Burning Throne

1.1. Garothi Worldbreaker

Trinket Choice: Norgannon's Prowess Icon Norgannon's Prowess & Vitality Resonator Icon Vitality Resonator.

Legendary Choice: Magtheridon's Banished Bracers Icon Magtheridon's Banished Bracers & Shard of the Exodar Icon Shard of the Exodar.

Talent Choice:

1.2. Felhounds of Sargeras

Trinket Choice: Norgannon's Prowess Icon Norgannon's Prowess & Acrid Catalyst Injector Icon Acrid Catalyst Injector.

Legendary Choice: Magtheridon's Banished Bracers Icon Magtheridon's Banished Bracers & Shard of the Exodar Icon Shard of the Exodar.

Talent Choice:

1.3. Antoran High Command

Be sure to track the spawn timers for the adds, as we can gain a lot of damage by correctly anticipating and setting up for cleave.

Trinket Choice: Norgannon's Prowess Icon Norgannon's Prowess & Prototype Personnel Decimator Icon Prototype Personnel Decimator.

Legendary Choice: Magtheridon's Banished Bracers Icon Magtheridon's Banished Bracers & Shard of the Exodar Icon Shard of the Exodar.

Talent Choice:

1.4. Eonar the Life-Binder

Thermal Void Icon Thermal Void is typically better than Comet Storm Icon Comet Storm due to the time you get on the bats and the Paraxis Inquisitor. Sephuz's Secret Icon Sephuz's Secret is a great choice for this encounter, as many of the small adds can be crowd controller. Frost Nova Icon Frost Nova is the best way to activate the proc, and serves a dual purpose, as limiting the movement of the adds is very beneficial in and of itself.

Trinket Choice: Prototype Personnel Decimator Icon Prototype Personnel Decimator & Vitality Resonator Icon Vitality Resonator.

Legendary Choice: Magtheridon's Banished Bracers Icon Magtheridon's Banished Bracers & Sephuz's Secret Icon Sephuz's Secret.

Talent Choice:

1.5. Portal Keeper Hasabel

Swap out your Shard of the Exodar Icon Shard of the Exodar for Sephuz's Secret Icon Sephuz's Secret on this encounter, which we can reliably proc on each Transport Portal Icon Transport Portal. You can Frost Nova Icon Frost Nova or Counterspell Icon Counterspell the adds for the most convenient activation. Stick to the edges of the arena, minimizing movement from Felstorm Barrage Icon Felstorm Barrage and using Shimmer Icon Shimmer as needed. Frost Mages, like most ranged, are best kept on the main platform.

Trinket Choice: Norgannon's Prowess Icon Norgannon's Prowess & Prototype Personnel Decimator Icon Prototype Personnel Decimator.

Legendary Choice: Magtheridon's Banished Bracers Icon Magtheridon's Banished Bracers & Sephuz's Secret Icon Sephuz's Secret.

Talent Choice:

1.6. Imonar the Soulhunter

Be very mindful of your health during the intermission, as we are a particularly fragile class. Try to activate your Ice Barrier Icon Ice Barrier in advance of the intermission beginning, so that it will be off cooldown during the intermission, allowing you to re-activate it for additional defensive potential.

Trinket Choice: Norgannon's Prowess Icon Norgannon's Prowess & Acrid Catalyst Injector Icon Acrid Catalyst Injector.

Legendary Choice: Magtheridon's Banished Bracers Icon Magtheridon's Banished Bracers & Shard of the Exodar Icon Shard of the Exodar.

Talent Choice:

1.7. Kin'garoth

Angle your camera so you can see the Diabolic Bomb Icon Diabolic Bombs coming well in advance. We recommend saving your cooldowns for each wave of adds, particularly on Mythic, as they are almost exactly two minutes apart after the first, lining up perfectly for us. The constructs are typically the crux of the encounter, and they take bonus damage (decaying over time), which allows us to maximize damage while also maximizing our impact for our raid group. Try and keep your Ice Barrier Icon Ice Barrier rolling whenever available, as raid damage can be quite high and the raid is often spread across a wide area. Vitality Resonator Icon Vitality Resonator is a good choice, as we can guarantee it will always be available for each of our cooldown windows; during the period of bonus damage on the constructs.

Trinket Choice: Norgannon's Prowess Icon Norgannon's Prowess & Vitality Resonator Icon Vitality Resonator.

Legendary Choice: Magtheridon's Banished Bracers Icon Magtheridon's Banished Bracers & Shard of the Exodar Icon Shard of the Exodar.

Talent Choice:

1.8. Varimathras

Shimmer Icon Shimmer has limited use on this encounter, as we spend nearly the entire fight stacked with the group. Movement is typically very short and for that reason we recommend Ice Floes Icon Ice Floes. On Mythic, you should always be sure to damage the Shadows that spawn, even if it is only a few spells, as every bit of damage is necessary to ensure a clean kill.

Trinket Choice: Norgannon's Prowess Icon Norgannon's Prowess & Acrid Catalyst Injector Icon Acrid Catalyst Injector.

Legendary Choice: Magtheridon's Banished Bracers Icon Magtheridon's Banished Bracers & Shard of the Exodar Icon Shard of the Exodar.

Talent Choice:

1.9. The Coven of Shivarra

Ring of Frost Icon Ring of Frost can be a very beneficial talent for assisting with crowd control when the Spectral Army of Norgannon Icon Spectral Army of Norgannon manifests.

Trinket Choice: Norgannon's Prowess Icon Norgannon's Prowess & Prototype Personnel Decimator Icon Prototype Personnel Decimator.

Legendary Choice: Magtheridon's Banished Bracers Icon Magtheridon's Banished Bracers & Shard of the Exodar Icon Shard of the Exodar.

Talent Choice:

1.10. Aggramar

On Mythic, you should take advantage of your Shimmer Icon Shimmer to give your allies space if you or they are afflicted with Ravenous Blaze Icon Ravenous Blaze. Your cooldowns should be used whenever available, provided they will not be interrupted by a phase change. Frost Nova Icon Frost Nova can be an asset to some raid groups to keep the Embers crowd controlled in the center of the room.

Trinket Choice: Norgannon's Prowess Icon Norgannon's Prowess & Acrid Catalyst Injector Icon Acrid Catalyst Injector.

Legendary Choice: Magtheridon's Banished Bracers Icon Magtheridon's Banished Bracers & Shard of the Exodar Icon Shard of the Exodar.

Talent Choice:

1.11. Argus the Unmaker

Frost prefers the Strength of the Sea Icon Strength of the Sea buff, so be sure to stack it as high as possible in Phase One. If you are afflicted by Soulblight Icon Soulblight it is easy to get well away from your group and back in time to restack your buff using Shimmer Icon Shimmer. Immunities do clear debuffs such as Soulburst Icon Soulburst, however, they will still damage your allies, so be sure to get well away from the raid before using Ice Block Icon Ice Block if you so choose. On Heroic and lesser difficulties, we recommend using your Potion of Prolonged Power Icon Potion of Prolonged Power during the Constellar Designates phase for the bonus damage. On Mythic, you should use your second potion after picking up the last Strength of the Sea Icon Strength of the Sea buff as you transition into the second phase. Remember that your potion resets after dying and entering the final phase; you should synchronize this final usage in such a way that it overlaps with the entirety of Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust or while Titanforging Icon Titanforging is active.

Trinket Choice: Norgannon's Prowess Icon Norgannon's Prowess & Acrid Catalyst Injector Icon Acrid Catalyst Injector.

Legendary Choice: Magtheridon's Banished Bracers Icon Magtheridon's Banished Bracers & Shard of the Exodar Icon Shard of the Exodar.
