Antoran High Command

Updated 3 months, 1 week ago for patch 7.3.5 by Preston. View the change log.

Antoran High Command Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for the Antoran High Command in Antorus, the Burning Throne. 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 fight as well as Dungeon Journal information. I'll continue to update it as-needed.

General Mechanics and Abilities

Normal and Heroic

This is a council style fight during which you'll be fighting the Antoran High Command face to face and inside command pods. Each boss has different abilities based on whether or not they're inside a command pod.

  • Only one boss is outside of the pods at a time, all bosses share health.
  • A player may enter the unoccupied pod to control it.

Players Inside Command Pods

  • While inside a pod, the player takes increasing damage over time from Psychic Assault.
    • Depending on what raid frames you use, you may need to enable displaying of pets to see players inside the pods.
    • On Heroic, players are unable to re-enter a pod while the Psychic Scarring debuff is on them.
  • The pods also have the following usable abilities.
    • All Pods: Chaos Pulse should be used as much as possible to maintain the 15% increased damage taken on current boss outside the pods.
    • Admiral's Pod: Withering Fire deals heavy damage to demon adds in the arena and increases their damage taken by 25%.
    • Engineer's Pod: Felshield Emitter places a shield device at the targeted location which can then be activated to create a shield that blocks 50% of fire damage.
      • This should be used on cooldown to place Emitters in preparation for Fusillade.
      • Where you place them will depend on how your group is moving around the room.
    • General's Pod: Summon Disruptor Beacon places a beacon that interrupts enemy spell casts, destroys Entropic Mines, and slows enemy's movement speed.

Bosses In Command Pods

Admiral Svirax
Chief Engineer Ishkar
  • Avoid the three mines created by Entropic Mine.
    • Coming within range of a mine triggers Entropic Blast, dealing heavy damage to the player that triggered it and applying a stacking damage over time effect to the group.
    • Felblade Shocktroopers and Fanatical Pyromancers can also trigger the mines.
General Erodus
  • Summon Reinforcements brings several adds into the fight.
    • Legion Pyromancer
      • Their Pyroblast cast must be interrupted as it will kill most players if allowed to go through.
    • Felblade Shocktroopers

Bosses Out of Command Pods

Shared Abilities
  • Assume Command removes any player from the boss's pod and takes over control.
  • The tanks will be dealing with Exploit Weakness.
    • Don't in front of the active boss to avoid the frontal cone.

Healing Notes

Quick Notes, All Difficulties

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.

  • Depending on what raid frames you use, you may need to enable displaying of pets to see players inside Command Pods.
  • Use Major Cooldowns on
  • Use Minor Cooldowns on
  • Pre-heal Before (mainly for heal over time classes)
  • Leytorrent Potion use
    • When no Felblade Shocktroopers are alive and Entropic Blast stacks are under control.
      • On Mythic, use after Shock Grenades have gone out, in addition to the above criteria.
  • Other things to watch for
    • Players inside Command Pods will need steadily increasing healing over time due to Psychic Assault.
