Krosus Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a DPS-focused strategy for Krosus in The Nighthold. While it's tailored for DPS, other roles may also find the information useful. If you have any suggestions or feedback, you can leave a comment below or tweet @VirendraDG.

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

Krosus is a simple encounter that serves as a gear check for your raid.

  • The fight takes place on a long bridge, but as the fight progresses Krosus will destroy sections of the bridge until he is defeated or the entire bridge is destroyed.
  • Krosus will fire Fel Beam from one of his hands. He telegraphs this attack by lifting either the right or the left hand, so players will need to avoid that side.
  • One player will be targeted by Orb of Destruction which deals massive damage to the whole raid. The farther away from the impact point, the less damage the raid takes. The target needs to run as far away as possible to minimize raid damage. However, as the fight goes on and more of the bridge is destroyed, the raid will take more damage.
  • When Krosus throws out Burning Pitch, players need to soak the patches or else Burning Ember will spawn.
    • Burning Ember use Felblast at random targets. If any of these spawn, DPS them down.
  • Krosus uses Slam to deal damage to the raid (tanks should be soaking this) and damage the bridge. Every third Slam will destroy a bridge section, and if you fall into the water, you will die.
  • If nobody is in melee range, Krosus will use Isolated Rage.
