Koralon the Flame Watcher is a raid boss in the Vault of Archavon, released with patch 3.2. He became available when Season 7 started, on September 1 (Season 6 ended on August 25th).

Like Archavon and Emalon, Koralon is only available to the faction that controls Wintergrasp Fortress. Also like Archavon and Emalon, he will despawn ten minutes before each fight for Wintergrasp starts. He does not despawn if he is already engaged in combat.

Strategy

Right after the pull, Koralon begins to stack Burning Fury, giving the fight a soft enrage. Koralon does not have a hard enrage.

Because of his Meteor Fists self-buff (amplified by Burning Fury), you will need to use two tanks standing in one spot. The Meteor Fists damage will be shared between those two tanks. It might be useful when not using 2 tanks to have high health melee classes around Koralon so the tank will not face too much damage from the Meteor Fists.

Everyone must get out of the fire spots quickly. Tanks should agree on which side to leave by. The Burning Breath ability (amplified by Burning Fury), where Koralon spins around, cannot be avoided and must be healed through.

Due to the heavy incoming damage on both the tanks and the raid it is recommended to have 3 healers. Make sure you have either [Resistance Aura] or [Elemental Resistance Totem] up since most of Koralon's damage is based on fire.

It is also highly recommended that all members of the raid have an Add-On like Deadly Boss Mods, which assists greatly in alerting one of the fire spots.

In A Nutshell

  • Use fire resistance aura
  • Do not stand on fire

Loot

10 man drops Tier 9 (ilevel 232) gloves and legs and Season 6 Gladiator gear (back, feet, finger, hands, legs, neck, waist and wrist). 25 man drops Tier 9 (ilevel 245) gloves and legs and Season 7 Gladiator gear (back, feet, finger, hands, legs, neck, waist and wrist).

Additionally, he has a chance to drop  [Reins of the Grand Black War Mammoth] (Alliance / Horde).
