Aggramar Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for Aggramar 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.

 Healing Notes

Quick Notes, All Difficulties

  • Stages
    • Scorching Blaze causes players to need light healing over time.
    • Players standing in Flame Rend will need light to moderate healing, depending how many are splitting the damage.
    • On Mythic, Ravenous Blaze also causes players to need additional healing.
  • Intermissions
    • Group healing cooldowns will likely be required during Intermissions, especially towards the beginning when all the adds are alive. 
    • Be aware of the possible heavy damage from Blazing Eruption if Embers reach the boss or gain 100 energy.

 Debuffs to Track

  • Several abilities cause players to need additional healing
  • On Mythic, if you're able to dispel magic effects on enemies, be prepared to dispel Catalyzed from Ember of Taeshalach.

 DBM Settings

Below are the DBM settings I'll be using for Aggramar. You can set them up however you'd like, but these ones should work well as a starting point. Some settings may be Mythic only.
