Goroth is the first encounter in the Tomb of Sargeras. It is comprised of a single phase with simple mechanics that repeat in a predictable cadence. The primary mechanics of the fight center around Infernal Spikes, which can be used to avoid lethal abilities Goroth performs.


Infernal Spikes

Infernal Spikes spawn under random Ranged and Healer players. A small circle will appear, and after a brief delay, the spike erupts and deals moderate Fire damage to anyone hit. It also knocks them away from the spike. The spikes are inanimate after spawning and can be used to affect other abilities performed by Goroth.


Crashing Comet

Crashing Comet Icon Crashing Comet targets up to 3 enemies, causing a medium sized circle to appear under their feet. After a few seconds, the comet crashes down from the heavens to the player's current location, dealing moderate Fire damage to anyone hit and destroying any Infernal Spikes within the impact radius (10 yards).


Shattering Star

Shattering Star Icon Shattering Star targets a random non-tank player. After 6 seconds, it deals immense damage to its target plus moderate damage to anyone struck by the spear while it travels. The damage to the target is reduced for every Infernal Spike the Shattering Star Icon Shattering Star strikes as it flies.


Burning and Melted Armor

Burning Armor Icon Burning Armor inflicts moderate Fire damage to the current target every 2 seconds for 6 seconds. When the debuff expires, it explodes for moderate Fire damage which hits and applies Molten Armor to everyone within a 25-yard radius. Molten Armor increases all damage taken by 100%. This ability will also hit any Infernal Spikes within range and destroy them.


Infernal Burning

Infernal Burning Icon Infernal Burning ignites everyone within line of sight of Goroth, dealing very high Fire damage immediately, followed by moderate ticking Fire damage every 2 seconds for 10 seconds. Standing behind an Infernal Spike counts as breaking line of sight and will negate this damage entirely.


Fel Eruption

Fel Eruption Icon Fel Eruption begins after the first Infernal Burning Icon Infernal Burning and causes the nearby Fel pools to rain from the edges of the room. The raining lava inflicts moderate Fire damage to everyone hit and leaves behind a pool that will continue to deal ticking Fire damage to anyone remaining within the void zone.
