Mor'geth Dungeon Journal Model Mor'geth, Tormentor of the Damned

This boss is located in The Maw.

  • The platform is covered in Stygian Fog which is held back by the Soul Chains connecting the Soul Cages, creating a safe area in the center.
  • The tanks will be dealing with stacks of Torment, eventually requiring a tank switch.
  • During Bring Me an Iron Golem, kill the activated Soul Cage to prevent the safe are from shrinking too much.
  • During Cries of Anguish, avoid the impact locations and the pools left behind.
