Legion World Boss Guides

Updated 5 years, 7 months ago for patch 7.3.5 by Preston. View the change log.

This page contains quick guides for all of the World Bosses in Legion. None of the fights are particularly complicated, nor are any of the mechanics particularly deadly, but knowing how to handle everything can make things that much easier. If you have any suggestions or feedback, you can leave a comment below or tweet @PrestonDvorak.

The guides have been updated and maintained based on my own experiences with the fights as well as Dungeon Journal information. I'll continue to update it as-needed.

World Boss Rotation: At this time, the world boss rotation seems to be random. With Ana-mouz and Na'zak spawning independently of the normal rotation. The new world bosses on the Broken Shore also have their own random rotation. This means three world bosses could potentially be active at the same time.


Ana-mouz Dungeon Journal Model

  • Move away from the clouds created by Gaseous Breath.
    • DPS should kill the Imps that are spawned.
  • Avoid damage from erupting Fel Geyser.
  • Do not stand in front of the boss to avoid Impish Flames.
    • If you're a tank, you should be switching with other tanks anytime this ability is used.
  • Players will be randomly affected by Mother's Embrace.
    • It's unclear from the Dungeon Journal if these players can be dispelled, if the cast can be interrupted, or if the affected players just need to wait out the duration.


Apocron Dungeon Journal Model

  • Avoid the impact locations of Felfire Missiles.
  • Quake deals moderate to heavy damage to everyone within 50-yards.

Calamir Dungeon Journal Model

Calamir has three forms, Fire, Frost, and Arcane. Each form has its own abilities.

  • Fire Form
    • Healers should dispel these bombs when players are in a safe area.
  • Frost Form
    • Avoid being hit by Icy Comet and don't stand in the icy ground it leaves behind.
    • Howling Gale will inflict light damage to players while slowly pulling them towards the boss.

  • Electrify will stun you if you do not have a water-walking buff.
  • Avoid being hit by Turbulent Vortex tornadoes.
  • Healers should be prepared for extra damage caused by Rending Tornado.

Withered J'im

Withered J'im Dungeon Journal Model
