Boss Guide: Fallen Avatar (Tomb of Sargeras)

Background

When Aegwyn defeated the Avatar of Sargeras, she was unable to destroy his avatar. In an effort to seal it away, the armor has entombed beneath the Temple of Elune, where is remained dormant for hundreds of years. Now, with the Legion tearing down the tomb´s barriers, Kil´jaeden is in position to reanimate the armor and unleash its power on Azeroth.


 

Overview

This fight is divided in 2 phases in which the second phase is the longest.

Phase 1

- You will fight the mini boss Maiden of Valor and the main boss, The Fallen Avatar.
- The main boss, The Fallen Avatar is trapped and can´t move, but uses loads of abilities on you.
- Fallen Avatar and Maiden have an energy bar. When it reaches 100 energy they will do different things:
• Fallen Avatar will kill Maiden and take the health she has left and put it on himself instead.
• Maiden will put a shield on herself (25% of remaining health absorption) and start casting a spell that kills the raid. If the shield is not broken before Maiden casts the spell, it’s a wipe.
- The energy comes from Pylons on the platform, every 40 seconds by shooting beams at the boss.
- Players need tank Maiden in front of the beam to intercept it from the Pylon so that Maiden gets the energy instead of the boss.

Phase 2

- When boss reaches 100 energy, phase 2 starts.
- The boss destroys the trap and this will destroy the entire platform.
- Players will fall down to a new platform and fight only the boss.
Now, the boss can move.
- The boss has 4 abilities in this phase.
- Boss will destroy the platform after a while and players need to fight the boss surrounded in lava and pieces of platforms, ending with just lava.
- This entire phase is all about mastering players to stack up on Dark Marked players and run away when boss does AoE blast, Sear.

Boss creates fissures on the ground. After 8 seconds, the fissures explodes and each one does 5 million damage to all players. If a fissure is absorbed, it will do 7.5 million damage to players, but equally divided instead.

Tactic: Touch of Sargeras (Heroic)

Raid
Players need to stand on all 3 fissures (A player for each fissure).

Healers
This will cause raid damage, beware.

Tip: Divide the raid in 3 groups:
Group stack on fissure left fissure.
Group 2 stacks on fissure in the middle.
Group 3 stacks on the right fissure.

Unbound Chaos

Boss targets several players and shoots several fire bombs on players location. When a location is targeted, it will explode after 1.5 seconds.

This explosion will do dmg to all players within 5 yards of the explosion.

Players hit by the explosion will also get a debuff that does fire damage every 0.5 seconds for 4 seconds.

Tactic: Unbound Chaos

Move away fast to the direction behind you and run towards the wall. When all bombs are shot, move back to position.


 

Shadowy Blades

Boss targets 3 random players.

After some seconds, he shoots purple blades that will move fast towards each targeted player and do Shadow damage.

When the 3 players get hit by the blade it will explode and do damage on targeted player, and any player within 10 yards of targeted player.

Heroic mode: The blade explosion does 2.7 million damage to targeted player and any player within 7 yards. This will also create a pool on ground (Lingering Darkness). Any player standing in the pool will suffer dmg every 2 sec and also slowed for 50%.

Targeted players run fast to the outer wall before you get hit, so that the pools are placed away from raid.

Tank swap after each Desolate debuff (the one tanking boss will switch to Maiden and vice versa)


 

Consume

When boss reaches 100 energy, he will break his trap.
He will also kill Maiden, but the health she has left before she dies will heal the boss.

Tactic: Consume

You need to make sure that the boss doesn’t hit 100 energy to fast, until Maiden is dead.
See tactic below regarding the Matrix Empowerment.


 

Ripple of Darkness

If no player is in melee combat with the boss, he will do high damage to all players in the raid.

Maiden of War – Abilities

 

Tank: position her so that she gets hit by the beam from the Pylons and further away from boss so she doesn´t take splash damage

Cleansing Protocol

When Maiden reaches 100 energy, she will put an absorb shield on her. This shield absorbs 25% of her maximum health.

When she has the shield, she will cast Cleansing Protocol that kills the raid.

If the absorb shield is broken, she malfunctions and does 25% of her health as damage to herself and stuns her for 4 seconds which interrupts all casts.

Dps, tanks and healers will help nuking the shield down.
The plan is that she will get a shield 4 times before phase 2.

There are 6 pylons in a half circle on the ground, all leading to boss. The Pylons shoots energy to the boss.

Only one pylon is activated every time and then changes to a random one.

You can clearly see what pylon is activated since that pylon is on fire and has a fel beam on the boss. Offtank needs to move Maiden so that she will get hit by the beam.
