Lord Jaraxxus is an eredar demon lord of the Burning Legion. He is the second encounter of the Trial of the Crusader raid instance, released in Patch 3.2. Lord Jaraxxus is summoned by Grand Warlock Wilfred Fizzlebang when the gnome attempts to summon a doomguard for the next challenge. Jaraxxus kills Fizzlebang for his efforts, and next plans to kill the player.

Jaraxxus is one of the many demons summoned by Gul'dan in front of the Tomb of Sargeras to attack the forces of Azeroth in the climactic, disastrous battle at the Broken Shore.

Strategy

Lord Jaraxxus is a fight with relatively simple mechanics with a moderate amount of healing required. Jaraxxus himself should be tanked in the center of the room, with ranged and healers set up in a wide circle. Spread healers evenly to avoid having large areas that are out of healing range. Fel Lightning, a chain lightning ability that increases in damage with each hop, can be very dangerous if the raid is not spread out. In order to reduce tank damage, Fel Fireball should be interrupted. [Fire Resistance Aura] also helps reduce incoming damage.

Every 60 seconds, Jaraxxus alternately spawns a Nether Portal or a Fel Volcano. Nether Portals spawn a Mistress of Pain, while Volcanoes spawn 3 Felflame Infernals. Both types of adds must be tanked and nuked down by ranged as fast as possible. Melee should stay on the boss.

Jaraxxus will randomly cast Incinerate Flesh on one raid member. This debuff absorbs all healing on that target until a certain amount of healing has been done (10-man: 30,000; 10-heroic: 40,000; 25-man: 60,000; 25-heroic: 85,000). Healers need to react quickly: if the debuff wears off, the target blows up, causing a Burning Inferno to hit the entire raid for large amounts of damage over time.

The other debuff which Jaraxxus randomly deals to raid members is Legion Flames. This continuously spawns flames under its target for six seconds. The target should run away from other raid members (towards the room wall) while remaining in range of healers.

Lord Jaraxxus will also occasionally give himself 5 stacks (25-man: 10) of Nether Power that increases magical damage dealt by 20%, totaling 100% (25-man: 200%). Mages should [Spellsteal] this buff as it will increase their DPS and reduce Jaraxxus's damage. If there are too few mages to remove it efficiently, the debuff should be dispelled by priests, shamans, protection warriors and hunters (Tranquilizing Shot). In 25-man, more than 2 mages are needed: Spellsteal is very mana-intensive and triggers a global cooldown, so removing 5 stacks per mage will take a long time and nearly exhaust the mages' mana pools.

To do list:

  • Spread out
  • Interrupt Fel Fireball casts
  • Spellsteal or dispel Nether Power
  • Tank and nuke the adds quickly (ranged only)
  • Healers: pay attention to Incinerate Flesh
  • Move away if affected by Legion Flames

Passive healing or damage reduction should be used as much as possible to make healer's lives easier. Use healthstones, health potions, bandages, etc. to get rid of Incinerate Flesh, and don't forget [Drain Life], [Bloodthirst] and [Rune Tap].

Heroic mode tactics (25-man)

The main difference between normal and Heroic mode is that the Nether Portals and Fel Volcanoes don't despawn. Instead, they will continue to spawn adds until the portals themselves are killed. Jaraxxus himself has a very forgiving enrage timer, but the portals are quite difficult to kill quickly enough. That means all DPS should prioritize portals and immediately switch to them when they appear. The portals will always spawn off Jaraxxus's left shoulder at 8 o'clock, about 10 yards away from him. Tanks should position the boss such that the portals will spawn approximately in the center of the room so that all DPS can quickly target them. All melee (except for Fel Fireball interrupters) should preemptively move to where the portals will spawn about 5 seconds beforehand. Once the portal is dead, melee can return to the boss.

If Jaraxxus is in the middle of casting Legion Flame or Incinerate Flesh on a raid member when it's time for a portal spawn, he may be turned at an odd angle and the portal might appear in an inconvenient spot. Everyone should be ready to dynamically adjust if this happens. Also, the timing of the Nether Power buff varies quite a bit and can cause a problem if its appearance overlaps with a portal spawn. Mages should be prepared to spellsteal the buff up until the moment a portal appears, at which time they should prioritize killing the portal.

The raid should aim to kill Nether Portals before more than one Mistress can spawn, and to kill Fel Volcanoes before more than three Infernals can emerge.

It is particularly important to avoid having multiple Mistresses, as they have gained a nasty new ability called Mistress's Kiss. The victim of this spell takes up to 14,350 shadow damage and is interrupted for eight seconds the next time he attempts to cast any spell with a cast time. The victim should cast a spell in a school he does not plan to use, so he is locked out of that school instead of his primary school. Players can avoid taking the damage while clearing the debuff if they cancel the spellcast before it goes off. Holy paladins, whose spells with cast times are all in the Holy school, are able to avoid getting interrupted by starting a cast and interrupting it right away (Aura Mastery used on conjunction with Concentration Aura does not prevent the interrupt). If multiple Mistresses spawn from the portal, shamans should blow [Heroism]/ [Bloodlust] and melee should swap targets and help burn them down.

The infernals can also cause a few problems. They are difficult for the assigned tank to pick up, and their constant movement makes focus-fire on any given one problematic. They will frequently target a random player, fly across the room to their position, and begin AOE'ing. The infernal cannot be moved once it plants itself, so nearby players have to run out of range. If the infernal targets a melee player, the tank needs to move the boss to somewhere safe. Mages should take particular care not to get separated from the boss by the infernals - they should always remain close enough to the boss to spellsteal.

The adds don't have a large number of hit points, so it is usually easy to kill them before the next portal phase, and Jaraxxus has an extremely lax enrage timer. However, it will take at least 5 or 6 portal phases to kill Jaraxxus, so the main challenge of the fight becomes burning down the portals both quickly and consistently.

Trivia

  • He's voiced by Jamieson Price.
  • Jaraxxus is one of few members of the Burning Legion to appear in Wrath of the Lich King, others including the nathrezim Mal'Ganis and Varimathras. Jaraxxus is also the only man'ari eredar to appear in Wrath.
  • Jaraxxus has become quite (in)famous among the playerbase for his voice files during the encounter, largely thanks to MrVoletron's remix (see above) and his extremely powerful Hearthstone card.
  • He appears as a legendary card for the Warlock class in Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. Playing the card destroys the summoning warlock and replaces him with Lord Jaraxxus. The game then continues with the player now controlling Jaraxxus, as a significantly enhanced hero with formidable powers. The card is infamous, both for its devastating power and for the soundbites which accompany its use. His flavor text is the same quote he uses in the instance: "TRIFLING GNOME! YOUR ARROGANCE WILL BE YOUR UNDOING!!!!"
    • The card artwork actually depicts Kurzon the False, an eredar hero from the WoW TCG.
    • In the Grand Tournament expansion, there is also a rare Warlock spell called Fist of Jaraxxus. However, the card artwork actually depicts a blue-skinned Eredar Chaosbringer from the TCG, and this is even pointed out by the flavor text, which reads: "* Not actually Jaraxxus' fist."
      • When asked about this, Ben Brode jokingly replied: "That's actually Jaraxxus. An Eredar Lord's skin changes color to match his mood. That's Chillaxxus."
