Mannoroth Strategy Summary

During Phase 1, players should kill the Fel Iron Summoners in the following order:

  1. The Fel Iron Summoner at the red Fel Spire
  2. The Fel Iron Summoner at the green Fel Spire
  3. The Fel Iron Summoner at the purple Fel Spire
This kill order eliminates the Infernals early so that melee DPS are not hampered by them while killing the final Fel Iron Summoner. A raid with few melee DPS could consider killing the Fel Imp summoner before the Infernal summoner.

Tanks should then position Mannoroth near the green Fel Spire, since it is the last of the Fel Spires to be destroyed by Gul'dan, and thus players will have to move less.
  • Tanks can put their backs to the Fel Spire so that the pillar will catch them during  Massive Blast
  • During Phases 2 and 3, killing adds takes priority over DPSing Mannoroth
  • The raid should stack tightly on one of Mannoroth's back legs, to bait Fel Imps and Infernals closer together
  • This will also mean that the players affected by  Mannoroth's Gaze are likely to run in the same direction, allowing for easy soaking of the damage effect
  • The raid should assign a few players to help soak  Mannoroth's Gaze and  Empowered Mannoroth's Gaze, preferably players with strong mobility and damage-reduction cooldowns
  • Players can either regroup on the same leg after each  Felseeker, or, swap to the opposite side of Mannoroth each time  Felseeker is cast
  • When Phase 4 begins, the green Fel Spire will be destroyed, so tanks must face Mannoroth toward the center of the platform
  • Players must avoid being in front of Mannoroth unless they are tanking, or during  Empowered Shadowforce while Mannoroth does not use his  Empowered Glaive Comboabilities
  • The raid should spread out slightly for  Empowered Mannoroth's Gaze, so that the affected players do not all run on top of each other, dealing heavy damage to each other and creating large  Gazing Shadows pools
  • Use  Bloodlust/ Heroism/ Time Warp during this phase to defeat Mannoroth quickly

Tank Responsibilities

  • During Phase 1, the only enemy to tank is the Doom Lord summoned by the first Fel Iron Summoner
  • At the start of Phase 2, pull Mannoroth toward the green Fel Spire and place your back to it
  • Each time Mannoroth begins his  Glaive Combo, one tank should take the first  Glaive Thrust and the subsequent  Massive Blast, while the other tank taunts for the second Glaive Thrust
  • Use Active Mitigation abilities during the  Glaive Thrust cast to avoid taking a  Puncture Wound
  • The  Massive Blast debuff means no tank can take two  Massive Blasts in a row; the tank who takes the final  Glaive Thrust of one  Glaive Combo must take the first  Glaive Thrust& the  Massive Blast of the next  Glaive Combo
  • When Phase 4 begins, spin Mannoroth around so he is on the edge and  Empowered Massive Blast will knock you across the platform safely
  • During Phase 4, tanks should not both stand in front of Mannoroth, as  Empowered Glaive Thrust will deal its damage to all players in front of the boss
  • If necessary, after an  Empowered Mannoroth's Gaze creates  Gazing Shadows pools, move Mannoroth a few yards along the outside edge of the platform to give the raid more space

Damage-Dealer Responsibilities

  • If affected by  Curse of the Legion in Phase 1, run to the tank, use a cooldown, and call for a dispel
  • If affected by  Mark of Doom in Phase 1, quickly move away from the raid, then intentionally take damage to clear the debuff
  • In Phases 2-3, adds take priority over Mannoroth; ranged DPS should prioritize Dread Infernals and melee DPS should prioritize Fel Imps
  • React quickly to each of the various ground-based AoE effects to avoid taking excessive damage
  • If targeted by  Shadowforce, save movement speed-increasing abilities for late in the mechanic, when the pushback effect is the strongest
  • If assigned to soak  Mannoroth's Gaze, follow the affected players as they run out of the raid
  • In Phase 4, spread out slightly as Mannoroth reaches 100 Energy to avoid too much overlap of  Mannoroth's Gaze effects
  • In Phase 4, when Mannoroth uses  Empowered Shadowforce, angle your facing or use strafe keys to control your direction, to avoid entering  Gazing Shadows or falling off the edge of the platform

Healer Responsibilities

  • In Phase 1, players with  Curse of the Legion or  Mark of Doom will require spot healing
  • Dispel  Curse of the Legion when called for
  • During Phases 2-4, tanks will take heavy damage from  Glaive Combo; pre-cast shields or strong single-target heals on both tanks, and be prepared to use external CDs if called for
  • Raid damage will be heavy during  Fel Hellstorm,  Mannoroth's Gaze,  Empowered Shadowforce, and Empowered Felseeker
  • If affected by  Curse of the Legion in Phase 1, run to the tank, use a cooldown, and cdispel yourself
  • If affected by  Mark of Doom in Phase 1, quickly move away from the raid, then intentionally take damage to clear the debuff
  • React quickly to each of the various ground-based AoE effects to avoid taking excessive damage
  • If targeted by  Shadowforce, save movement speed-increasing abilities for late in the mechanic, when the pushback effect is the strongest
  • If assigned to soak  Mannoroth's Gaze, follow the affected players as they run out of the raid
  • In Phase 4, spread out slightly as Mannoroth reaches 100 Energy to avoid too much overlap of  Mannoroth's Gazeeffects
  • In Phase 4, when Mannoroth uses  Empowered Shadowforce, angle your facing or use strafe keys to control your direction, to avoid entering  Gazing Shadows or falling off the edge of the platform
