Do you want to beat Drov the Ruiner in World of Warcraft?
World bosses are raid boss-level monsters that spawn in the main, shared world in World of Warcraft, rather than an instance limited to a group of players. You can also call them world raid bosses or outdoor raid bosses.
These bosses were designed to be fought by one or more max-level characters, but lower-level characters can be brought along.
World bosses were removed from Blizzard’s philosophy, starting with the release of Wrath of the Lich King. Although Cataclysm introduced some small group mini-bosses, nothing required serious raids.
However, during World of Warcraft: Mist of Pandaria, world bosses returned in the form of new encounters.
One of the world bosses you’ll encounter in World of Warcraft is Drov the Ruiner. You’ll find him at the north end of the Valley of Destruction in Gronn Canyon in northwestern Gorgrond.
Today, we’ll show you the best strategy to beat Drov the Ruiner in World of Warcraft.
Let’s get right into it!
Drov the Ruiner Encounter
Drov was called Ruiner by the Blackrock clans of old, who learned to give the magnaron a wide berth. He carves a swath of devastation where he walks, and it seems like the earth recognizes his arrival and parts to make way.
The fearsome magnaron shatters the earth, causing hordes of goren to burrow up beneath the earth and spread chaos among his adversary.

For the rest of the encounter, the entire raid must remember not to stand in front of Drov’s frontal-cone Colossal Slam attack. Healers should handle the raid-wide splash DMG for Colossal Slam and Giga Smash.
