Sulfuron Harbinger, Healer Guide

Updated 1 month, 4 weeks ago for patch 1.13 by Preston. View the change log.

Sulfuron Harbinger Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for Sulfuron Harbinger 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 four Flamewaker Priests.
    • Flamewaker Priest
      • Keep at least 45-yards away from Sulfuron Harbinger to avoid the increased attack speed and damage dealt from Inspire.
      • The tanks will be dealing with Dark Strike.
      • Interrupt Dark Mending to prevent the healing.
      • Dispel Immolate (magic) to prevent the light damage over time.
      • Dispel Shadow Word: Pain (magic) to prevent the light damage over time.
  • Stay at least 10-yards away to avoid Hand of Ragnaros.
    • Fire Resistance gear, items, and buffs can be used to resist or mitigate this effect.

Resistance Levels

  • Tanks:
    • Holding Sulfuron Harbinger should have as much Fire Resistance as possible without sacrificing their other stats.
    • Holding Flamewaker Priests should have as much Shadow Resistance as possible without sacrificing their other stats.
  • Melee should have as much Fire Resistance as possible without sacrificing their other stats.
  • 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.

  • Be sure the tanks holding Flamewaker Priests have healers in range of them.
  • The encounter begins rather healing intensive and becomes easier as Flamewaker Priests are killed.
