Magmadar, Healer Guide

Updated 1 week, 6 days ago for patch 1.13 by Preston. View the change log.

Magmadar Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for Magmadar 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

  • Avoid the impact locations of Lava Bomb.
  • Dispel Frenzy (enrage) to remove the increased attack speed effect.
    • If no dispel is available, the tank should use a defensive cooldown to survive the 8-seconds.
  • Melee will gain stacks of Magma Spit through out the fight, dealing light to moderate damage over time.
    • Fire Resistance gear and/or buffs will likely be mandatory for melee so the damage is manageable.
  • Stay at least 40-yards away to avoid Panic.
    • Be sure the tanks and melee still have healers in range of them.

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.

  • Keep the tanks near full health so they survive Frenzy before it's dispelled.
  • Keep healing over time effects on melee when you can to help keep their health stable.

Debuffs to Track

Addons

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