Kalecgos, Healer Guide

Updated 1 year ago for patch 2.5.5 by Preston. View the change log.

Kalecgos Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for Kalecgos in Sunwell Plateau in The Burning Crusade. 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 encounter, combat log information, and Dungeon Journal information. I'll continue to update it as-needed.

General Mechanics and Abilities

During this encounter, players will be rotating in and out of the Spectral Realm.

Both Realms

  • When Kalecgos or Sathrovarr reach 10% health, both gain Crazed Rage, increasing attack speed and damage dealt.

Normal Realm

  • Players will fight Kalecgos in the Normal Realm.
  • Don't stand in front to avoid Frost Breath (dispel, magic).
  • Don't stand behind to avoid Tail Lash.
  • When targeted by Spectral Blast, stay more than 10-yards away from other players.
    • This pulls the affected player and any players within 10-yards into the Spectral Realm.
    • A portal is also created that players can click on to enter the Spectral Realm.
  • Applies random positive and negative effects to players.
  • Deals stacking light to moderate damage to all players with Arcane Buffet.
    • Stacks are removed by entering the Spectral Realm.

Spectral Realm

Players enter the Spectral Realm when hit by Spectral Blast or by using the portal left behind.

  • Players stay in the Spectral Realm for 60-seconds and gain Spectral Exhaustion upon leaving, preventing entering the Realm again for 60-seconds.
  • Players fight Sathrovarr the Corruptor.
    • Sathrovarr the Corruptor
  • A friendly Kalec is present in this Realm.
    • Kalec
      • Can tank Sathrovarr if no tank is present.
        • Kalec is unaffected by player healing spells, but generally won't die even if left to tank for the entire encounter.
      • Restores health and mana to random players within 10-yards with Revitalize.

Resistance Levels

  • All players should use as much Arcane Resistance as possible without sacrificing other stats.


Healing Notes

Quick Notes

The notes below mostly pertain to progression difficulty, meaning if you out-gear the encounter or use extra healers they may not apply.

  • Use Cooldowns
  • Other things to watch for
    • Stand near Kalec in the Spectral Realm to potentially regain mana from Revitalize.

Debuffs to Track



  • Frost Breath (dispel, magic) can be dispelled immediately.
