General Information

Welcome to our World of Warcraft encounter guide for Gul'dan in The Nighthold. We will teach you everything you need to know to defeat the boss in every difficulty.

On this particular page, we will give you a short overview of the fight as well as a list of things to watch out for (include LFR tips when applicable).

The other pages of our Gul'dan guide can be accessed from the table of contents on the right.

1. Contents

To make it easy to navigate the guide, we have split it into 2 pages:

2. Lore

Gul'dan is the final boss in the Nighthold.

The chain of events set in motion when Garrosh escaped to Draenor has continued, unbroken for all its twists and turns, leading to this very moment. Thwarted in Draenor, Gul'dan now stands on the precipice of achieving ultimate victory on behalf of his Legion masters. Standing atop the Nighthold, as the vortex of fel energy swirls in the skies overhead, the outcast orc warlock awaits his destiny.

3. Outline

Gul'dan is a 3-phase encounter that tests all aspects of a raid groups skills and coordination. It will take an exceptional group to bring him down.

4. TL;DR

4.1. Tanks

4.2. Healers

  • Use Scattering Field Icon Scattering Field to reduce the group's Fire damage taken at key points throughout the encounter.
  • Dispel Drain Icon Drains when it is applied.
  • Coordinate healing cooldowns for Black Harvest Icon Black Harvest.

4.3. DPS

5. Bloodlust/Heroism/Time Warp

While it maybe possible to get 2 Bloodlust Icon Bloodlusts on this fight, it is recommended that you use Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust during the third phase. This phase is overall the most dangerous, and ending the fight as quickly as possible here is the priority. The raid will be eventually be taking heavy damage from Soul Corrosion Icon Soul Corrosion stacks and Black Harvest Icon Black Harvest, and the Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust here doubles as a healing cooldown, keeping the raid healthy.
