Mannoroth is the penultimate boss in the Hellfire Citadel in Tanaan Jungle.

Background

Adventure Guide

Bloodthirsty and brutal, Mannoroth was Archimonde's most feared enforcer, until he was felled by a mighty blow from Grommash's blade. Even in death, his blood was used by Gul'dan to fuel a dark bargain with the Iron Horde and their allies. Gul'dan and his minions now seek to reanimate the shattered remains of Mannoroth, that he may continue to serve the Legion.

Designer's note

Taking place atop the Citadel, looking out over the corrupted expanse of Tanaan Jungle below, this encounter features a parallel and opposing ebb and flow: initially, fel spires act as conduits for minions of the Legion, but as they are destroyed, Mannoroth gains more and more power as he is more fully reconstituted. The battle begins against a set of channelers and their minions as Mannoroth is nothing more than a heap of bones on the ground, and concludes with a final battle against the fully empowered Mannoroth.

Overview

Players initially face a set of Fel Iron Summoners that call servants of the Legion into Draenor. After their defeat, Gul'dan resurrects Mannoroth. When Mannoroth reaches 65% and 30% health, Gul'dan overcharges the Fel Spires to further empower the pit lord. In Mythic difficulty, Gul'dan reclaims the Fel power from the Fel Iron Summoners to resurrect Mannoroth, keeping the Doom Lord's Fel Spire intact.
