Strategy overview

Gor'groth's fight is split into two phases, one where you face Gor'groth and the other where you face Ravnyr. Gor'groth goes first, before sacrificing himself to raise Ravnyr. Once the dragon is downed, the encounter is over.

Phase One

Gor'groth begins by sending a few shadow bolts onto you. Stay close to Henry Garrick to get healed. At some point, Gor'groth will unleash Unstable Shadows, where the ground will be covered with circular purple shadows. Simply get out of the circle to avoid talking damage. DPS him down as quickly as possible.

Phase Two

At 40% health, Gor'groth sacrifices him in order to raise Ravnyr. His first ability is Necrotic Breath; simply avoid standing in the front cone of the caster. Wing Buffet is his other ability; to counter it, stand close to the boss and Henry so you don't get thrown a long-distance away. DPS him down as quickly as possible and you won.


Gor'groth drops several appropite-level rare items.
