Magmorax, Healer Guide

Updated 3 weeks, 4 days ago for patch 10.1 by Preston. View the change log.

Magmorax Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for Magmorax in Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible in Dragonflight. 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 contact me.

This guide has been updated and maintained based on my own experiences with the encounter, combat log information, and Dungeon Journal information. I'll continue to update it as-needed.

Magmorax ModelGeneral Mechanics and Abilities

Magmorax ModelNormal and Heroic

  • Several abilities, noted below, create Magma Puddles which slowly increase in size over time.
  • The tanks will be dealing with extra light damage from Incinerating Maws and stacks of Incinerating Maws, which deals stacking light damage over time and greatly increases damage taken from subsequent Incinerating Maws while the effect persists.
  • Don't stand in front when he turns to cast Blazing Breath.
  • When affected by Molten Spittle, stay more than 10-yards away from other players to avoid chaining the moderate damage dealt when the effect expires. This leaves behind a Magma Puddle.
  • Every 100-seconds, deals moderate damage to all players and knocks them back with Overpowering Stomp.
  • About every 45-seconds, deals light damage to all players with Igniting Roar and applies a stack of Igniting Roar, dealing increasing light to moderate damage over time the duration of the encounter.
  • Gains 1% Energy every 3.5-seconds for the duration of the encounter. At 100% Energy, deals stacking heavy damage over time to all players for the remainder of the encounter with Catastrophic Eruption.
    • 100% Energy is reached in 5-mintes 50-seconds, assuming no additional Energy is gained from Magma Puddles.

Magmorax ModelMythic Differences

  • Magma Puddles can no longer be completely absorbed.
  • Stack with the player targeted by Explosive Magma to split the damage dealt and reduce the initial size of the resulting Magma Puddle.
    • Players hit take greatly increased Fire damage while the effect persists.
    • Five players splitting the damage should be sufficient, with each player taking around 250,000 damage before factoring in any mitigation.
