Goroth is the first boss in the Tomb of Sargeras.

As punishment for past failures, Goroth's flesh is marred with searing wounds. With every movement this behemonth makes, his flesh crackles and hisses with unending torment, a scourge he is happy to inflict upon those who oppose him.



The encounter against Goroth has a single phase, with a predictable cadence that allows for a simple rinse-and-repeat style once the raid is acclimated to the boss.





  • Perform a taunt swap when Burning Armor Icon Burning Armor is applied. The debuffed tank should get a minimum of 25 yards from the rest of the group before the debuff expires.

DPS & Healers

  • Correctly aim the Shattering Star Icon Shattering Star such that it collides with several Infernal Spikes to reduce the damage taken.
  • Ensure no Infernal Spikes are destroyed if you are targeted with Crashing Comet Icon Crashing Comet.


  • Positioning
    • The boss can be tanked where he stands (at the top of the arena) and should be faced away from the raid.
    • Ranged and healers should fan out in a semi-circle behind the boss.
  • Hide behind the Infernal Spikes when Infernal Burning Icon Infernal Burning is cast.
  • Avoid being hit by Fel Eruption Icon Fel Eruption and the pools left behind.

Bloodlust/Heroism/Time Warp

We advise you to use Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust/Heroism Icon Heroism/Time Warp Icon Time Warp at the pull, as Goroth is a single phase fight. This ensures best cooldown synergy and maximum raid DPS, noticeably shortening the fight length.
