Garr, Healer Guide

Updated 1 week, 5 days ago for patch 1.13 by Preston. View the change log.

Garr Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for Garr in Molten Core. While it's tailored for healers, other roles may also find the information useful. If you have any suggestions or feedback, you can leave a comment below or tweet @PrestonDvorak.

This guide has been updated and maintained based on my own experiences with the encounter, logs information, and Dungeon Journal information. I'll continue to update it as-needed.

General Mechanics and Abilities

  • Accompanied by eight Firesworn.
    • Firesworn
      • Are susceptible to Banish from Warlocks.
      • Dispel Immolate (magic) to prevent the light damage over time.
      • Upon death, Eruption deals heavy damage to players within 15-yards.
      • Must be kept within 20-yards of Garr to avoid gaining Separation Anxiety, increasing damage dealt and granting immunity to Banish.
  • Removes beneficial magic effects from players using Antimagic Pulse.
  • Applies Magma Shackles (dispel, magic) to players, reducing movement speed.

Healing Notes

The notes below mostly pertain to progression difficulty, meaning if you out-gear the difficulty you're on or use extra healers they may not apply.

  • The tank with the Firesworn will take significant damage until most of them are killed, in addition to taking the damage from each Eruption.
  • Be aware of Antimagic Pulse removing buffs and heal over time effects.
  • While Magma Shackles (dispel, magic) can be dispelled, it's generally not worth the mana to do so in most cases.

Debuffs to Track


I'm currently working out which addons will be relevant in Classic. I may add DBM settings here as usual, even if they won't entirely be required.
