Peroth'arn is the first boss to appear in the Well of Eternity instance.

Adventure Guide[]

Like many of his fellow Highborne, Peroth'arn swore allegiance to the corrupted Xavius in exchange for gifts of demonic power. As a master of fiendish magic and recipient of the satyr curse, Peroth'arn stands outside Azshara's palace in defense of the Burning Legion, ready to destroy those hoping to disrupt the entrance of the Dark Titan, Sargeras, into Azeroth.


  • Spell fire felimmolation Corrupting Touch Tank Alert — Peroth'arn's melee strikes apply Corrupting Touch on his current target, increasing damage taken by 10% for 20 sec. This effect stacks.
  • Spell fire felpyroblast Fel Flames — Summons Fel Flames, doing 33250 Fire damage after 3 seconds and an additional 11875 every second to enemies who enter the area for the next 30 sec.
  • Spell fire felfirenova Fel Decay Healer Alert — Peroth'arn's Sickly Touch causes a random target to decay from within, instantly deals 40000 Shadow damage and 8500 Shadow damage every second for 10 sec. Any healing done to the afflicted player causes the healer to suffer 50% of the amount healed as Shadow damage.
  • Spell shadow lifedrain02 Drain Essence Deadly — At 70% remaining health, Peroth'arn stuns all enemies and inflicts Shadow damage every second for 4 sec.

The Eyes of Peroth'arn Important[]

After Illidan interrupts Drain Essence, Peroth'arn returns to the shadows to ambush the heroes. Peroth'arn unleashes his Eyes of Peroth'arn to search for the players. Players gain the protection of their Shadowcloaks to help them avoid the detection range of the Eyes.

If players avoid detection for 40 seconds, Peroth'arn becomes visible and weakened with the Enfeebled effect.

If an Eye of Peroth'arn discovers a player, Peroth'arn marks the player with Easy Prey, leaps out of the shadows, and attacks the discovered player.

  • Ability rogue findweakness Easy Prey — When an Eye of Peroth'arn discovers a player, Peroth'arn casts Fel Quickening and marks his new target as Easy Prey. The mark removes the player's Shadowcloak or stealth and stuns them for 8 sec.
  • Ability ghoulfrenzy Fel Quickening — Peroth'arn increases his attack speed by 100% for 15 sec.
  • Ability warlock improvedsoulleech Enfeebled — If after 60 seconds Peroth'arn has not detected a player with his Eyes, Peroth'arn can no longer remain hidden in the shadows and becomes Enfeebled. This effect stuns Peroth'arn and increases his damage taken by 25% for 15 sec.
  • Ability warrior endlessrage Endless Frenzy — At 20% remaining health, Peroth'arn frenzies and increases his damage by 25%.


The tank should engage Peroth'arn. The stacks of Corrupting Touch are mostly unavoidable. All players should avoid the puddles created by Fel Flames.

Fel Decay is going to cause >120000 damage to its target. The healer must judge whether a heal can be delayed until the debuff ends, or if the damage must be healed immediately (injuring the healer). It is mathematically similar to a 33% healing debuff so it is a subject of concern, not panic.

When he vanishes and sends out the eyes, players should run to avoid the eyes. If a player is detected the tank will have to taunt periodically because Peroth'arn appears to like to switch to the Easy Prey victim.
