During the encounter, players will be marked for death, and when they die their spirit is eaten by the boss. Inside Gorefiend, players have maximum 40s to attack the souls and heal Tortured Essences and get iut, otherwise they get digested. Souls that are killed or released will reduce Gorefields energy and makes him want to eat souls to get the energy back and then is starts over again.

Positioning

Ranged stay spread

Tank on right side of boss

Melee stay spread from middle to the left side of the boss.

 

Abilities

Shadow of Death

This shadow is what will kills the players in order to enter the stomach of Gorefiend. Players get randomy hit by it.
BUT, if you die the normal way you will also get sucked into his stomach.

Just follow the mechanics of the fight and enter the stomach when the boss uses this ablity on you.
TO many ppl inside the stomach may lead to boss wipe since the small amount of players outside stomach will have trouble killing the adds and survive boss mechanics.
Even if you die and run out from stomach you will have a 3 min debuff that doesnt let you enter the stomach, leading to that same ppl may get Shadow of Death and this time they actually die instead. 
Kill the adds and healers heal special adds before they reach the middle which will make them free outside and attacks players outside. 
When a tank is inside there is one Enraged Spirit mob to tank and must be interupted. 
Leave the stomach by entering the middle area (You have 40s to be in there before digested so leave when there are some sec left).

Devour of Souls

When players are dead they are spirits inside Gorefiends stomach. After 40 seconds Gorefiend will Digest anyone inside causing over 1,5 million in dmg.  Players that have been inside gets a debuff called Gore fiend’s Corruption meaning that same player can´t enter again for 3 minutes.

So after killing adds inside the stomach players have to exit the stomach by stepping on the middle circle inside the stomach. Run out before 40 seconds have passed.

Touch of Doom

Gorefiend does Moderate Shadow damage on players. The further players are standing the less dmg. This will be followed by Doom Well wich creates a small pool underneath players that does moderate dmg every second.

You have 5 seconds to run to Star which is on the edge furthes away from boss. Wait there until the pool is created then move back to your posiotion again. 

Several players (3) will get this touch and the pool will be there during the entire fight. So place the pools next to eachother along side with the edge. Dont place it anywere else, since players needs as much space as possible in the platform. 

Shared Fate

Gorefiend will target 3 players. One get´s rooted and the other 2 have a link with the rooted one. To break this bond these players need to stand on the rooted player. While linked, these players are affected with Shadow dmg every 2 seconds.

HOTFIX: Gorefiend no longer uses Shared Fate on Normal or Raid Finder difficulty.

If you are linked, run fast to the rooted one to break linkage.

Surging Shadows

All players will emit a pulse that does low/moderate dmg within 5y.
Raid needs to stay 5y spread from each other during the etire fight

Crushing Darkness

Gorefiend creates chain explosions that inflicts high damage to enemies close to it (4y). 
Before the explosion, markings will come on the ground to warn were the explosion will take place. The chain explosion is half circel shaped and you can stand anyweere (inside or outside the circle) execpt on the actual markings. After explosion move back to your position. 

Feast of Souls

When Gorefiend is low on energy he recharges it for 1 min. During this time his defense is lowered and increases dmg taken on him by 100%.

At the same time Unstable souls will get sucked towards him. Each soul that reaches him, gives him 10 energy. If players touch an unstable soul it collapses and at the same time does moderate damage to that player and less on players that are close (10y)

Blood Lust/Time warp here.
Stack infront of boss
Healers and tanks runs around and touches the unstable orbs.
All dps focus on boss and use all offensive cd´s here.

When inside Gorefiends stomach

Inside Gorefiend, players have maximum 40s to attack the souls and heal Tortured Essences and get iut, otherwise they get digested. Souls that are killed or released will reduce Gorefields energy and makes him want to eat souls to get the energy back and then is starts over again.
