Magmadar, Healer Guide

Updated 1 year, 9 months 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.
  • Stay at least 40-yards away to avoid Panic.
    • Be sure the tanks and melee still have healers in range of them.

Resistance Levels

  • Tanks: ~100-200 Fire Resistance
  • Melee: ~100-200 Fire Resistance
  • Ranged/Healers generally won't make use of any additional Resistances on this encounter.

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.
