The Antoran High Command (or the War Council)[1] is a trio of eredar bosses in Antorus, the Burning Throne: Admiral Svirax, Chief Engineer Ishkar, General Erodus.


Adventure Guide[]

Long ago, in the golden age of eredar civilization, a council was formed to oversee the defense of Argus and maintain peace. But after their dark bargain was struck with Sargeras, these master tacticians used their military expertise to help orchestrate a Burning Crusade that ravaged countless worlds.

Now the full might of the Legion's army is theirs to command, and they wield this terrible power to annihilate all who oppose the Dark Titan's will.


The Antoran High Command's three commanders attack their enemies both face to face and from inside their command pods. Only one commander is out of their pod at any given time, and commanders still in their pods attack their enemies using the might of the Legion military. While a commander is attacking directly, their command pod is empty and can be commandeered. After a period attacking their enemies face to face, commanders will Assume Command and return to their pod. On Mythic difficulty, Screaming Shrikes will appear periodically and channel Extract Interloper in an to attempt to remove your allies from command pods they have commandeered. Additionally, the effects of Psychic Scarring last for the duration of combat.
