WoW Dragonflight - Magmorax Boss Guide

Deep within the fiery depths of the Shadowed Crucible, an imposing guardian watches with fierce loyalty. Magmorax, a lava hydra, was raised from a pup by the fearsome Neltharion, also known as Deathwing. Over the years, Magmorax has developed an insatiable appetite, a trait rivaled only by his devotion to his master. His massive, serpentine body, forged from the very lava that flows through the underground rivers, is a terrifying sight for any who dare approach.

Neltharion, a master of manipulation and secrecy, entrusted Magmorax with the crucial task of guarding the passages leading to the deepest chambers of the Shadowed Crucible. These chambers contain ancient and powerful secrets, hidden from the outside world. Only those brave or foolish enough attempt to pass by this colossal guardian. Magmorax’s presence is a constant reminder that the secrets of the Shadowed Crucible are not easily uncovered.

In a world where betrayal and power struggles are commonplace, Magmorax's unwavering loyalty to his master is a testament to the special bond between beast and creator. As long as Magmorax stands watch, the mysteries of the Shadowed Crucible will remain safeguarded, far from prying eyes.

Tips and Strategy

Magmorax is a formidable opponent with a variety of devastating abilities that require precise coordination and strategy. Here are some key tips and strategies for tanks, damage dealers, and healers to handle Magmorax's abilities effectively:

General Strategy

1. Avoid Standing in Magma Puddles: Players should avoid standing in Magma Puddles to prevent taking continuous Fire damage from Searing Heat.

2. Manage Magma Puddles: Assign players to strategically stand in Magma Puddles to shrink them over time, minimizing the area they cover.

3. Spread Out for Molten Spittle: When Molten Spittle is cast, spread out to minimize overlapping damage and manage the creation of Magma Puddles.


1. Positioning: Ensure Magmorax is positioned away from existing Magma Puddles to prevent him from gaining Blazing Tantrum.

2. Tank Swap: Coordinate tank swaps to manage the stacking debuff from Incinerating Maws. Swap tanks before the debuff stacks too high to avoid fatal damage.

3. Blazing Tantrum Awareness: Be vigilant about Magmorax's movement and ensure he doesn't enter a Magma Puddle, which would trigger Blazing Tantrum.

Damage Dealers

1. Molten Spittle Management: Spread out when Molten Spittle is cast to ensure Magma Puddles are spread out and manageable.

2. Lava Ejection Handling: Position yourself to intercept Lava Ejections, ensuring they hit players and not the ground, to prevent additional Magma Puddles from forming.

3. Focus Fire: Prioritize burning down Magmorax quickly while managing positioning to minimize the impact of his abilities.


1. Searing Heat Management: Be prepared to heal players who are standing in Magma Puddles to shrink them. They will take continuous Fire damage.

2. Dispel and Heal Molten Spittle: Be ready to heal and dispel players affected by Molten Spittle, as they will take heavy damage over time and explode upon removal.

3. Heal Through Igniting Roar: Prepare for increased healing output during Igniting Roar phases, as the Fire damage from this ability will stack and affect all players.

Energy Management and Catastrophic Eruption

1. Energy Monitoring: Keep track of Magmorax's energy levels. When he reaches 100 energy, he will unleash Catastrophic Eruption.

2. Burst Healing and Damage: Save cooldowns for when Magmorax is nearing 100 energy to mitigate the massive damage from Catastrophic Eruption.


1. Spread Out: Maintain a spread-out formation to minimize damage from area-of-effect abilities and to manage the placement of Magma Puddles.

2. Avoid Puddles: Continuously move and reposition to ensure you are not standing in or near growing Magma Puddles.
