Looking for the best strategy to beat Garr in World of Warcraft?
Garr is a conglomerate elemental boss located in Molten Core between Gehennas and Baron Geddon in World of Warcraft. He’s guarding the Rune of Blaz and is a melee boss with 8 Firesworn Guards.
He’s said to be one of the lieutenants of Ragnaros who escorted the Firelord into Azeroth during the War of the Three Hammers.
Garr also carried out the betrayal of Lord THunderaan, the Prince of Air, and sometimes referred to as the Windseeker. During the Elemental Sundering, Ragnaros ordered Baron Geddon and Garr to ambush Thunderaan.
Thunderaan was caught off guard and was destroyed. Ragnaros almost consumed every last bit of Thunderaan’s essence and stored the rest in a talisman of elemental binding.
Being one of the chief lieutenants serving under Ragnaros, Garr played a significant role in the success of the Firelord. Garr also holds half of the Bindings of the Windseeker, containing the remaining essence of Thunderaan.
In this guide, we’ll show you how you can beat Garr in Molten Core.
Let’s jump right in!
Beating Garr in Molten Core
The more warlocks you have in the group, the easier this encounter will be. However, this strategy should also work with a couple of warlocks. Assign each of your warlocks on one firesworn.
Every warlock must keep firesworns banished and order a void walker to tank them in between breaks. Remaining firesworn without a warlock assigned to it must be picked up by an off-tank and killed by DPS.
Keep in mind that firesworn explode when they die, causing massive damage to nearby players. When they’re about to die, melee players must quickly get away to save HP and healer mana.
Your raid group will benefit during the entire fight if all mobs are kept spread out to avoid explosions and Garr’s debuffs.
When your firesworn tanks are down, the group should focus on Garr, which the main tank must pick up from the start of the fight. Warlocks must keep their targets banished until Garr falls.
After killing Garr, your raid should deal with the banished firesworn one at a time.
When doing this strategy, remember that your tank needs a tremendous amount of healing. Assign one tank to pick up Garr and his firesworn. Next, wait for threat to build up with Demoralizing shout before DPS.
It would be best to assign some paladins or priests to remove the Immolates from your main tank constantly. Once Garr is killed, start AoE on the firesworn.
