Are you looking for the best strategy to beat the Tarragrue in World of Warcraft?
The Tarragrue is a massive and mighty charred behemoth that spawns in Torghast, the Tower of the Damned in World of Warcraft. Once a player or raid reaches a specific death count in a single encounter, the Tarragrue will show up at the entrance of the current level.
When the Tarragrue spots any player, he’ll start to hunt them down and kill them. Depending on how far you are in the current level, the exit can still be reached in time.
However, if Tarragrue reaches the end of the level or executes all players, the run will end, and you will get thrown out of Torghast.
While the Tarragrue is overwhelmingly powerful, certain anima powers should be able to defeat it.

Today, we’ve decided to make a guide on how to beat Tarragrue in the Sanctum of Domination in World of Warcraft.
Let’s jump right in!
Tarragrue Encounter Overview
Before pulling Tarragrue, you can first kill the four big mobs that look like trash cans. This will give you a random anima power. Unfortunately, they are not class-specific powers, but some of them are actually decent.
The anima power that drops from the mobs is random every time. This means that you just have to make the best of what you get each encounter.
However, it would help if you took note of the following before getting anima powers:
- Don’t take anima powers that make you bigger and knock people around. You’ll risk killing your allies with this anima power or make them mad.
- Avoid the ones that stuns everyone when you die. It will also annoy other players on the raid.
- Ask one of your raid members to take the anima power that gives immunity to stun and fear effects. This should help you negate the most fatal mechanic of this encounter if you use it right.
All anima powers that drop from the mobs are just varying shades of good, so pick the one that suits your playstyle.
When you finally face Tarragrue, remember to use Bloodlust or Heroism on the pull and keep the boss in the middle of the room while the entire raid should spread out. The most fatal mechanic of this encounter is the Chains of Eternity.
This mechanic marks a random player and chains them after a few seconds. This chain can be intercepted by other players standing between the boss and marked player, but they will get stunned and killed by Tarragrue.
For players who intercepted the chain, blocking the stun is the only way to avoid getting killed by the boss. You can do this using regular immunities or with anime power.
The player who obtained the stun-immunity anima power should soak every chain cast by Tarragrue. Tank players should also taunt swap after every cast of Overpower, which stuns and increases physical DMG taken for a short while.
A dispellable debuff also goes out on random players, which fears anyone nearby, so the entire raid must spread out to avoid getting the debuff. Healers should dispel any player that gets feared and any player that needs to move for other fight mechanics.
Tarragrue cast an enrage that should be removed by a Druid, Rogue, or Hunter.
Finally, quickly move to a safe spot when the boss teleports, and the room gets dark until Hungering Mist is over.
Tarragrue Encounter Optional Achievement
The Tarragrue encounter features an additional achievement called ‘Name A Better Duo, I’ll Wait’. Completing this together with the other optional achievements within Sanctum of Domination will give you the Glory of the Dominant Raider meta-achievement.
You’ll also receive the Bracer of Hrestimorak to teach you the unique Hand of Hrestimorak mount.
