Boss-Order and Guides

First Encounter of ToS: Goroth

Freedom of Choice

You will have some choice in which order you progress through the raid instance (apart from LFR, of course):

  • Goroth has to be done first, always
  • The raid then splits into three wings you can play in any desired order:
    • Sisters of the Moon and Desolate Host
    • Harjatan and Mistress Sass’zine
    • Demonic Inquisition
  • After those 6 fights, your path becomes linear again with Maiden of Vigilance, Fallen Avatar and Kil’Jaeden as final encounter

  1. Goroth
  2. Demonic Inquisition
  3. Harjatan the Bludger
  4. Mistress Sassz’ine
  5. Sisters of the Moon
  6. The Desolate Host
