Mannoroth Cosmetic Strike Point
Lol even in this fight he can't handle a hit from a weapon stabbed in him :P
This fight is relatively easy and goes through 3 phases.
: You start off fighting Varo'then while illidan and tyrande hold off Mannoroth and a stream of demons spawning from a portal. Varo'then has a melee ability that will hit 2 other nearby targets. So range just make sure your not standing by the melee.
: Once Varo'then is dead phase 2 starts. Not sure if this part has changed but basically Varo'then drops his weapon and you throw it at Mannoroth. After that attacks on mannoroth have a chance of proccing an arc that does 200,000 damage to mannoroth. During phase 2 dreadlord debillitators will incapacitate Tyrande and the tank will have to pick up the demons constantly flowing through the portals while your dps kill the debillitators. once their dead tyrande will kill all the demons and your dps can go back to killing mannoroth. As mannoroths health lowers more demons will stream out of the portal.
: When mannoroth hits about 20% health your tank will have to help tyrande again by picking up all the adds. illidan will give your party a immolation type aura that will damage nearby enemies so don't worry too much about killing the demons as the aura will take care of that for you. Just hold onto them and the healer needs to heal through the damage. The dps will continue dpsing mannoroth till he hits 1% hp. At this point the fight will end and you get to watch alittle segment where malfurion stormrage banishes mannoroth...or kills him whichever one.
Do about 10 million damage to him and he kills Varo'then for you.
Defeating him afterword nets you one of the best achievements in the game, proving you have no say, but you did it anyways:
Make sure you click on the sword Varo'then drops before engaging Mannoroth! Otherwise the fight draws on forever. Around 16 minutes and 56 seconds, more precisely...
... don't ask how I know that...
When the debilitators come out. It helps to stand in Tyrandes little MoonBeam. The extra arcane damage to your attacks kills the demons extremely fast.
Phase 1 is hardest for PUG because there is a fire to stand in and die from. When Tyrande needs help only the two different looking demons channeling on her need to be downed.
You never have to even touch any of the other demons.
(Pugs love to spend 5+ minutes padding the dmg meters by blowing up the adds)
This is one of those fun bosses that can be almost completely downed without a full group though. I've had ones where I had to two-man it from the point where the general dies onward (and neither of us were healers).
**Pre-fight trick. After you jump on the dragons from beating Queen Azshara, there's no need to sit through the cutscreen each time. Talk to your dragon by right clicking the mount and you can skip ahead.
Strategy for easy kill: This fight is not terribly taxing, but can result in deaths because of poor knowledge of the fight.
1) Attack Varo'then. NOT the big guy (Mannoroth) - he'll heal up if you don't attack the small boss anyway. So it's just wasted time and dps.
2) When Fel Firestorm is being cast, just keep on the move - run around in a circle. They hit fairly hard and can cause deaths easily for people standing in the fire, ahem. They seem to target a player and fall from the sky, much like the first boss in Baradin Hold. So if you start moving as it begins, it will fall where you were one second before. It is easily possible to avoid almost all damage if you are on the move.
3) When Tyrande collapses and the adds mob her, everyone run into the light, get the buff, and then KILL THE TWO ADDS TO THE SIDES (Dreadlord Debilitator). It's amusing (to a point) to watch groups kill wave after wave of the melee adds (they're endless afaik). All you have to do is kill the Debilitators and they will release their glowey thread debuffing Tyrande and you can continue with the fight. **Notes: with the buff, you do ridiculous damage to demons, so even the healer can pop a quick moonfire or something similar and kill them.
4) Throw the sword left behind (right click it) to debuff Mannoroth, then bust him up.
5) To make the fight easier on the tank and do more overall dps, a little placement is worth doing. The adds all stream from a portal to the left of the boss. Have the tank right of the boss (or wherever, doesn't matter too much), have heals stack on the tank, and have range dps stand right behind tank in a direct line from the portal. This way the tank can just dps the boss while cleaving, and he'll pick up all the adds as they stream over him.
For the few of us who do not know who Mannoroth was,
Mannoroth the Destructor
was a Pit Lord lieutenant in the Burning Legion and the original architect, along with Kil'Jaeden, of the Orcs corruption on Draenor. By Kil'Jaeden's command Mannoroth, with great reluctance, offered his blood to the orcs. The orc chieftains of Draenor drunk heavily of this blood and it drove them into a blood lusting horde bent on chaos and death. It was then the Orcs wiped out what remained of the Draenei.
Mannoroth would later appear on Kalimdor after the redemption of the orcs. Secretly he bled into a nearby fountain of life corrupting it. Grom Hellscream's forces discovered the defiled well and sensed the power emanating from it. Despite his advisers warnings Grom and his clan drank from the fountain corrupting them once again. In a new bloodrage, the Warsong Clan faught and slaughtered the demi-god Cenarius.
Mannoroth would later fall to the axe
and the mace Doomhammer when Grom and his friend Thrall were lured into a trap. Mannoroth easily threw aside Thrall but Grom's vicious attacks cleaved his two-bladed sword in twain and slayed the mighty pit lord, freeing the orcish race.
Mannoroth's armor and bones are strung up to a large twisted tree in Orgrimmar to serve as a memorial.
Side note: on bat mobs prior to boss Tyrande can't hit them : meaning she's not hit capped. During boss fight she runs out of arrows : meaning she still uses ammo. Apparently she behind in gear and patches.
@Ihavenolife: actually for a destruction warlock the best to top the meters here, is to drop Bane of Havoc on the boss and aoe the adds. Everytime you deal damage to the adds (a lot, very often) you also deal damage to the boss (15%). Each of those hits has a change to trigger magistrike.
I usually do around 120k dps in this fight like that.
Warrior's Challenging Shout (AoE taunt) actually makes Mannoroth attack the Warrior and one-two shot him - so do NOT use Challenging Shout anywhere near Mannoroth.
Perhaps blizz fixes this in a later patch.
Grom Hellscream must of been one OP guy... He one shotted a boss that had 99,592,800hp with a level 70 axe.
Here is the video.
we killed it before event complete.
I dare say noone cares but after a while, during the still active Metamorph buff you change back into a night elf, if you use Ghost Wolf you turn back into the Demon-form. I'm guessing this also works for Druids and their alternate forms but I have not confirmed this myself yet.
Just a visual.
I know someone out there has translated the demonic dialogue exchanged between Mannoroth and Illidan... I'm curious what's being said.
Priests: cast Levitate on your party and yourself when you have Illidan's buff to get a squad of awesome looking flying demons.
Clarification: you don't just float about like normal; you actually flap your wings.
75% - Felguards and Felhounds
50% - Infernals
40% - Metamorphosis
Boss Level for no reason.
Is he voiced by Billy West? He sounds an awful lot like Richard Nixon's Head from Futurama...
, you two-bit communist.
For those who want the sound file of Illidan's demon-speaking for themselves:
Revos ill ok mordanas archim maz naztheros! Archim xi ante maz-re mishun te nagas!
Play this song
during the fight, it makes it so much more epic.
Where's his armor?
They have at least two models of Pit Lord with Belly armor to use already. (Magtheridon and Annihilus)
Hunters, if soloing him, don't use
, as it causes him to despawn.
Ok to START the fight with the two last bosses, Mannoroth and Captain Varo'then, you have to KILL ADDS! First kill the smaller demons. The dude npc will follow u after... Then kill shadowbats, the dude npc will follow you again after... Yea this is lame that if you go straight to the 2 bosses, you wont be able to attack them. Then no-no-no, don't attack Manoroth, attack the Captain varo'then first and when hes dead, you can attack Manoroth... I dont know why it's like that and I wont search why it's like that too! All this is totally stupid, but its like that. Glad and proud to tell my opinion.
Hope it help people who solo the well of eternity :D(##RESPBREAK##)16##DELIM##Sas148##DELIM##
2 years later, the encounter still bugs out of you kill the bats too quickly.
The fight seems to reset for no reason. Whether I did of didn't dps the boss would always reset within 5 seconds. I finally got it to work by going around behind Manny then towards Illidan and friends then dpsing Manny only then throwing the sword stuck in the ground at him.
