Tracking quest

To check whether Drov has been looted this week, copy and paste this command into the chat window:

/run print(IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(37460))

If a "true" appears in the chat window, Drov has been looted this week; "false" indicates the opposite.

Adventure Guide

Drov was called Ruiner by the Blackrock clans of old, who quickly learned to give the fearsome magnaron a wide berth. Drov carves a swath of devastation where he walks, as though the earth itself senses his arrival and parts to make way.

Overview

The massive magnaron smashes the earth, causing a horde of goren to burrow up from beneath the earth and sow chaos among his foes.

Abilities

  • Ability fomor boss pillar02.png  Colossal Slam — Slams the ground, inflicting 34125 to 35875 Nature damage and knocking frontal enemies high into the air. The blast inflicts an additional 34125 to 35875 Nature damage to all nearby enemies.
  • Ability fomor boss shout.png  Giga Smash — Slams the ground, inflicting 48750 to 51250 Nature damage to all enemies.
  • Ability fomor boss rune brown.png  Call of Earth — Drov places a palm on the ground, causing the earth to tremble and break. These vibrations attract nearby Goren.
    • Rumbling Goren Tank Alert — Frenzied Goren will emerge from the ground, inflicting 19500 to 20500 Nature damage on impact. They will roll around in a frenzy, inflicting 24375 to 25625 Physical damage on contact and knocking players away. After Call of Earth is over these Goren will submerge back into the ground, re-emerging at will.
      • Rogue leeching poison.png  Acid Breath — Inflicts (100% of Spell power) initial Nature damage to enemies in a frontal cone. The poison burns for 4627 to 5373 Nature damage every second thereafter.
      • Spell shaman improvedearthshield.png  Crushing Charge — Charges forward, inflicting 24375 to 25625 Physical damage and knocking enemies away.

Strategy

Do not stand in front of Drov's frontal-cone Colossal Slam attack, and healers need to handle the raid-wide splash damage for both that and Giga Smash. Kill the summoned Frenzied Rumblers when Drov casts Call of Earth and watch out for their Acid Breath and Crushing Charge attacks.

Loot

Drov drops item level 650 necklaces, belts, and gloves.
