G'huun is the final boss of in Uldir.

In Uldir, the titans had hoped to find a solution to the Old Gods. But when they experimented upon the Old Gods' unending, ravenous need to corrupt, they unexpectedly created a perfect avatar of that desire. G'huun is nothing but rot, pestilence, and decay, the ultimate parasite who cannot stop itself from consuming its host until it is gone.



G'huun is a three-phase encounter that will require the raid to be divided into small groups in order to complete a small extra objective to advance the fight. Encircling the encounter area are long elevated platforms, accessible via a ramp near the entrance. Groups will need to leave the main encounter area to ferry orbs from one end of the platform to the other. Doing so three times will, among other things, cause all enemies to take additional damage as well as become stunned. Expediently ferrying orbs is the linchpin to completing this fight.





  • When tanking the Dark Young be sure to move him on top of the other adds when he is casting Dark Bargain Icon Dark Bargain.
  • Tank G'huun in the middle of the room near the entrance, taunt swapping as often as possible to drop his stacks of Growing Corruption Icon Growing Corruption.
  • When using Blood Feast Icon Blood Feast to drop your stacks of Putrid Blood Icon Putrid Blood, be sure to pick up the Gibbering Horror that spawns.


  • During Reorigination Blast Icon Reorigination Blast, stand still and use your AoE heals or light cooldowns to top off the raid.
  • Stop casting when Mind-Numbing Chatter Icon Mind-Numbing Chatter is being cast to avoid being interrupted.
  • Before players leave to the upper level, be sure to top them off, and HoT them up.
  • Ensure you have powerful raid cooldowns available when transitioning into Phase Three to help manage the damage from Collapse Icon Collapse.


  • In Phase One, focus down the Blightspreader Tendrils, then swap to Cyclopean Terrors. Keeping one Dark Young alive is ideal so your raid gets more Dark Bargain Icon Dark Bargain buffs.
  • In Phase Two, kill the Gibbering Horrors as fast as possible to reduce the number of times your raid is interrupted by Mind-Numbing Chatter Icon Mind-Numbing Chatter.


  • Teams assigned to running the Power Matrix Icon Power Matrix should remember their place in line and run to their ramp just before their orb spawns.
  • Run Explosive Corruption Icon Explosive Corruption to the edges of the room before the debuff expires.
  • Make sure to dodge orbs of Virulent Corruption Icon Virulent Corruption.
  • Gain the Dark Bargain Icon Dark Bargain buff as often as possible by standing under the Dark Young as he casts it. Do not go above 1 stack or you will be mind controlled.


  • In Phase One, position the raid in such way that they are able to quickly move into the Dark Bargain Icon Dark Bargain cast.
  • For Phase Two, tank G'huun at the back of the room near the door and have the raid spread behind him in a semi-circle.
  • Do not get too close to other players when Wave of Corruption Icon Wave of Corruption is cast.
  • Stack up for Blood Feast Icon Blood Feast in order to drop Putrid Blood Icon Putrid Blood stacks.
  • At the start of Phase Three, run from the impact zone of Collapse Icon Collapse.
  • Use movement speed abilities to escape Malignant Growth Icon Malignant Growth zones.

Bloodlust/Heroism/Time Warp

We advise you to use Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust/Heroism Icon Heroism/Time Warp Icon Time Warp when G'huun is stunned by Reorigination Blast Icon Reorigination Blast to make use of the 100% damage buff.
