Kin'garoth, Healer Guide

Patch 7.3.5 Updated
May 03, 2018

Kin'garoth Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for Kin'garoth 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

During this fight, you'll be alternating between two stages.

Stage - deployment

During Deployment, you'll be fighting Kin'garoth directly, alongside his creations. This Stage ends when Kin'garoth reaches 100 energy and begins again after 40-seconds.

  • The tanks will be dealing with Forging Strike.
    • Don't stand within 5-yards of the tank to avoid the area of effect.
  • Avoid the Detonation Charges left behind by Reverberating Strike.
  • Avoid Diabolic Bombs.
    • These should be detonated in a controlled manner when they're away from the group.
  • Avoid the Ruiner beam as it sweeps across the platform.
  • Avoid the Construction Bays, which are protected by Cleansing Protocol during this Stage.
  • Shattering Strike deals light damage to the group.
Stage - construction

During Construction, Kin'garoth enters his construction console and players will be fighting his creations. This Stage begins when Kin'garoth reaches 100 energy and ends after 40-seconds.

Fel Reavers

The following fel reavers will be constructed during the Construction Stage.

  • Garothi Annihilator (green)
  • Garothi Decimator (red)
    • When affected by Decimation, move away from other players to help mitigate the damage taken.
  • Garothi Demolisher (purple)
    • Stack on players affected by Demolish to split the damage.
      • Being hit also increases shadow damage taken, likely making it impossible to help split the damage again until the debuff is gone.
  • All fel reavers take additional damage due to Initilizing upon spawning.
    • This effect starts at 30 stacks and decreases by one stack every second.
  • Killing a fel reaver triggers Feedback Overload, damaging Kin'garoth for 4% of his maximum health.
  • General kill order should be Demolisher, Annihilator, Decimator (purple, green, red).

Stage - deployment

Several abilities can become empowered depending on which fel reaver is killed last in the Construction Stage and will gain an additional effect.

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.

  • Use Major Cooldowns on
    • Construction Stages, especially during the beginning when all Fel Reavers are alive.
  • Use Minor Cooldowns on
    • Diabolic Bomb detonations, especially if they're near the group.
    • Construction Stages, if major cooldowns aren't available or aren't sufficient.
  • Pre-heal Before (mainly for heal over time classes)
