Table of Contents

General Information

On this page, we list all the abilities from the Portal Keeper Hasabel encounter in Antorus, the Burning Throne. The idea is to give you a solid understanding of the encounter before you read the strategy.

If you are already familiar with the encounter, then you can skip to the strategy and tactics page or access any other page of the guide by using the table of contents on the right.

1. Overview

Portal Keeper Hasabel is a unique encounter, featuring a main boss and 3 mini-bosses. Each enemy occupies their own platform, which can only be accessed by the portals that Hasabel herself opens. There are plenty of adds throughout the fight, pouring through the portals to engage the raid. Hasabel requires significant coordination on higher difficulties, but she will always test the groups damage and teamwork.

Portal Keeper Hasabel is technically a single-phase fight, and she will use the same abilities throughout the encounter. At certain health values, however, she will open specific portals that access the mini-bosses and allow new adds to join the encounter. This splits the fight into four pseudo-phases that each have a distinct theme.

2. Portals

The main platform has three portals that can be entered at any point during the encounter. There is a red portal, a green portal, and a purple portal, and each takes you to a corresponding platform. Although the portals can be accessed at any point during the encounter, there is little incentive to do so until the boss "activates" them, which occurs during set health breakpoints in the encounter (90%, 60%, 30%). When this happens, a mini-boss will spawn on its respective platform and members of the raid will travel through the portal to engage and defeat it.

There are specific situations where it may be valuable to enter a portal even though there is currently no mini-boss to defeat. These moments are addressed on our Strategy page.

3. Platform: Nexus (Portal Keeper Hasabel)

Portal Keeper Hasabel occupies the main platform where the raid enters, which is designated "Platform: Nexus" in the dungeon journal. Hasabel will never leave Platform: Nexus.

3.1. Reality Tear

Reality Tear Icon Reality Tear is a stacking Tank debuff which inflicts Physical damage every 2 seconds for 30 seconds. When the debuff expires, it inflicts Shadow damage to all players in the raid based on the number of stacks.

3.2. Collapsing World

Collapsing World Icon Collapsing World opens a portal at Portal Keeper Hasabel's current location. A large circle with a 30 yard radius will appear, and the raid will have several seconds to escape the blast radius. Players still inside the radius of the Collapsing World portal will suffer heavy Shadow damage and be knocked away. All players will receive moderate Shadow damage, regardless of positioning.

3.3. Felstorm Barrage

Felstorm Barrage Icon Felstorm Barrage opens a portal that spews a barrage of fel fireballs that rain down in a line. Anyone struck will suffer heavy Fire damage and be knocked back. Felstorm Barrage manifests as massive green lines on the ground, covering the entire length of the platform and roughly 10 yards wide. They appear as a visual for a few seconds before the actual barrage lands, giving you time to move.
