Raid Guide – Kilrogg Deadeye (Normal / Heroic)

<- Back to Hellfire Citadel Raid Guides

Kilrogg Deadeye, Warlord of the Bleeding Hollow, seized control of his clan after performing a ritual to learn of his death. With this knowledge, he led his clan fearlessly on countless campaigns, marching toward the glorious end he desires. Now, with demon blood coursing through his veins, Kilrogg awaits you in Hellfire Citadel, awaiting the moment of his death, or yours.

Kilrogg Deadeye is mostly an add fight, with a Fel Corruption resource bar and a secondary realm (Vision of Death) in which players kill demons to gain stacks of Undying Resolve / Undying Salvation. Players must kill adds based on a priority system and handle their Fel Corruption in order to succeed.

Tank Mechanics

  • Tank the Hulking Terror that forms when one of the Salivating Bloodthirsters jumps down on the fel blood pool.
    • Tanks should tank every other one to make sure their Fel Corruption remains low.
    • Face the Terror away from the raid to avoid hitting other players with Savage Strikes.
    • Interrupt Rending Howl.
    • Melee should run out before the Terror dies, but it can be moved away at the last minute by the tank.
  • Use Active Mitigation on Shred when tanking Kilrogg to avoid Shredded Armor.
    • Death Knight – Death Strike (Blood Shield) / Rune Tap
    • Monk – Elusive Brew
    • Warrior – Shield Block
    • Paladin – Shield of the Righteous
    • Druid – Savage Defense
  • Stand near healers with Cleansing Aura if Fel Corruption is too high.
  • Avoid:
    • Standing in the path of Heart Seeker. An arrow is drawn from the boss to the player.
    • The fel missiles spawned by Death Throes (green swirls).
