Antoran High Command, Healer Guide

Patch 7.3 Updated
October 19, 2017

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.
  • 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.
    • 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 a location, which can then be activated to create a shield that blocks 50% of fire damage.
      • This should be used before Fusillade  to help mitigate the damage done.
    • General's Pod: Summon Disruptor Beacon places a beacon that interrupts enemy spell casts, destroys Entropic Mines, and slows enemy's movement speed.
      • This will likely be used to help interrupt Legion Pyromancers.
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 and then light damage over time.
    • Felblade Shocktroopers (also called Legion Defenders, it's unclear which name they'll be in the final release) and Fanatical Pyromancers can also trigger the mines.
General Erodus
  • Summon Reinforcements brings several adds into the fight.
    • These adds can be used to trigger Entropic Mines to help kill them faster.
    • Legion Pyromancer
      • Their Pyroblast cast must be interrupted as it will kill most players if allowed to go through.
    • Legion Defender
      • Demonic Charge charges one of the three players furthest away, slowing their movement speed.
        • The three players will likely want to position themselves so the Legion Defender charges through an Entropic Mine.
        • Immediately after Demonic Charge, the Defender uses Bladestorm, dealing light damage in a frontal cone.
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 Sundering Claws.
    • Avoid standing in front of the active boss to avoid the frontal cone.

Mythic Differences

Players Inside Command Pods
Bosses In Command Pods
Chief Engineer Ishkar
Bosses Out of Command Pods
Shared Abilities
  • When affected by Shock Grenade, stay at least 8-yards away from other players and move to a Felshield Emitter or use a powerful personal defensive cooldown to survive the explosion.


Healing Notes

Quick Notes, All Difficulties

  • Fusillade will likely require a group-healing cooldown, especially if combined with other mechanics and adds.
  • Players targeted by Demonic Charge may need heavy healing if they can't move out of the subsequent cleave quickly enough.

Debuffs to Track

DBM Settings

Below are the DBM settings I'll be using for the Antoran High Command. 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.

DBM settings will be added closer to the release of the raid.
