Garothi Worldbreaker, Healer Guide

Patch 7.3 Updated
October 19, 2017

Garothi Worldbreaker Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for Garothi Worldbreaker 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

  • Avoid the tanks when they're affected by Fel Bombardment.
  • Searing Barrage deals light damage to the entire group.
  • Run away from Garothi when Eradication is cast to mitigate the damage taken.
  • Garothi's cannons alternate between two modes.
    • Decimator
      • Avoid the impact locations of Decimation.
        • Upon expiration, these deal light damage to the entire group and fatal damage at the impact location.
    • Annihilator
      • The impact locations of Annihilation must be soaked to prevent group-wide damage.
  • When Garothi reaches 65% and 25% health, Apocalypse Drive is cast.
    • This deals moderate damage to the group while channeled
    • At least one of Garothi's cannons must be destroyed during the channel or fatal damage will be dealt to the group upon completion.
      • Garothi gains a stack of Empowered for each weapon not destroyed.
      • When a weapon is destroyed, its ability is no longer used.
    • On Heroic, avoid Surging Fel erupting from the ground during the channel.
  • If no players are in melee range, Carnage is continually cast.

Mythic Differences

  • Luring Destruction deals heavy group-wide damage and pulls all players towards the boss.
  • Garothi's weapon's can no longer be destroyed and instead gain additional effects following Apocalypse Drive.
    • Decimator
      • Haywire causes Decimation impact locations to stun as well as deal moderate damage to the entire group.
    • Annihilator
      • Haywire causes Annihilation to deal damage twice to players soaking, and then creates additional impact locations that need to be soaked.


Healing Notes

Quick Notes, All Difficulties

Debuffs to Track

  • There are no particular debuffs that need to be tracked for this fight.

DBM Settings

Below are the DBM settings I'll be using for Garothi Worldbreaker. 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.
