This 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.
During this fight, you'll be alternating between two stages.
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.
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.
The following fel reavers will be constructed during the Construction Stage.
Several abilities can become empowered depending on which fel reaver is killed last in the Construction Stage and will gain an additional effect.
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.
Below you'll find legendary and gear recommendations for healing Kin'garoth. Recommendations are mostly based on Mythic difficulty. Gear recommendations for classes other than Druids are largely based off the top items shown on WarcraftLogs. If your class Discord or other guide is recommending something else, let me know in a comment so I can make any necessary updates.
Below are the DBM settings I'll be using for Kin'garoth. 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.
Below is a video of me and my guild defeating Kin'garoth on Heroic difficulty. There is no commentary, only game sounds.
