Background

Adventure Guide

Once ally to the Master, Tirathon made a bargain with the Legion in exchange for more power. Embittered after years of imprisonment, Tirathon is eager to dole out pain and suffering to whomever crosses his path. If that happens to be one of his former captors, then so much the better.

Overview

Tirathon begins the fight in his blood elf form, but uses Metamorphosis halfway through the encounter. Tirathon changes to one of two demonic forms at this time and uses new and altered abilities. The form that Tirathon chooses changes from week to week.

Damage Dealer Alert Damage Dealers

  • Furious Blast cannot be interrupted as long as Tirathon has Dark Energies protecting him.
  • If Tirathon metamorphoses into a Vengeance demon he casts Fel Mortar instead of Furious Blast. This will greatly increase the number of Furious Flames zones in the arena.
  • If Tirathon metamorphoses into a Havoc demon, use your damage reduction abilities to survive.

Healer Alert Healers

  • Furious Blast damages the entire party if Tirathon's cast is successful.
  • If Tirathon metamorphoses into a Havoc demon the entire party will take significant damage as the fight continues.

Tank Alert Tanks

  • Use Active Mitigation while Darkstrikes is active to prevent Tirathon from gaining Dark Energies.
  • Furious Blast cannot be interrupted while Dark Energies is active.
  • If Tirathon enters Vengeance form, reposition him to avoid his whirling Glaives.
