Abilities and Tactics

When debuff expires, it explodes and does high fire damage to anyone within 10 yards of the tank.
The explosion puts a debuff called Malted Armor.

Tank swap at every Melted Armor.

 


 

Crashing Comet

Boss targets up to 3 players. 
After 5 seconds the boss will shoot a comet on the targeted player locations. 
The impact does high fire damage to players within 10 yards.

Tactic Crashing Comet

Infernal Spike

Infernal Spikes (pillars) comes up from the ground under targeted players.
A mark on the ground shows where it erupt.
After 2 seconds the pillar comes up from the ground.
This does high Fire damage to anyone close to it.

Tactic: Infernal Spike

The entire fight is about controlling the location of these pillars.
1) Ranged stands spread from each other when there are no pillars at all.
2) As soon as pillars comes up, ranged need to position themselves behind a pillar a spread to the pillars more or less equally. 
3) When second wave of pillars come, they will be behind the first pillar. 
4) Hide behind pillars which is important for protection from other boss abilities (Shattering Star, Infernal Burning).

(sry for misspell on figures, Infernal Spikes correct word)

 


 

Shattering Star

Boss targets a player. 
A big arrow is shown from the boss pointing at that player. 
After 2 seconds, boss shoots a big fireball at that player.
When hit, it will do high/deadly damage to all players within 200 yards.
Any player standing in between will take damage.

Tactic: Shattering Star

Stand behind pillars (Infernal Spikes) when targeted. 
The more pillars the fireball hits before it hits the player, the less damage the raid takes. 
When the pillars take this boss damage, they are destroyed.

Therefore, it is important to place pillars correctly.
Ranged stands spread from each other when there are no pillars at all.
As soon as pillars come up, ranged need to position themselves behind a pillar a spread to the pillars more or less equally. 
When the second wave of pillars come, they will be behind the fire pillar.

 


 

Infernal Burning

Boss does fire damage to the entire raid.
If hit, the player takes deadly damage followed by a debuff that does damage every 2 seconds.

Tactic: Infernal Burning

Every player (tanks as well), runs behind pillars. 
When the pillars take this boss damage, they are destroyed.

 


 

Heroic Mode extra ability

Fel Eruption

Fel fire rains from the side of the room on ranged player location.
This leaves a big pool on the ground that does fire damage every 1 sec.

Tactic: Fel Eruption

Players need to stay spread when no pillars.
In this way the first wave of pillars is spread as well, meaning that players will be spread over the platform. 
When fire hits, leaving a big pool om the ground, players go to the left/right away from the pool and will still have pillars that are not in the lava.

 


 

When to Bloodlust/Timewarp/Heroism

At pull.
