Goroth is a pit lord[1] serving as the first boss of the Tomb of Sargeras raid.


Dungeon Journal

As punishment for past failures Goroth's flesh is marred with searing wounds. With every movement this behemoth makes, his flesh crackles and hisses with unending torment, a scourge he is happy to inflict upon those who oppose him.

Encounter design

The arrival of the infernal lord Goroth also opens an ancient passage that leads outside the Tomb’s structure, into caverns surrounding its foundations. This allows the second section of the raid to have a significantly different feel from the rest, guiding players through a mix of natural caverns and ancient ruins as they contend with a host of Queen Azshara’s naga minions. This theming is also closely connected to the Tidestone of Golganneth, one of the Pillars of Creation that are the key to sealing the Legion assault of Azeroth.[2]


Goroth continuously gains fel energy until he can unleash Infernal Burning, decimating any enemy it hits. Use Infernal Spikes to survive Infernal Burning and Shattering Star. In Mythic difficulty, Infernal Spikes explode when destroyed inflicting raid wide damage.
