Swarmlord Khargroth is the second boss in Primeval Feast. This encounter is quite funny except for the fact it made me face my spider fears. Basically this guy is the king of all insects and crawlers and he will use them against the raid.
I loved the fact he has an unique model and that this fight introduces new boss mechanics. I mean what can be better then being chased by a huge angry looking spider ?
Also this fight combines the use of AoE with single target DPS, which I’m sure a lot of you will like. Nothing better then dusting up that Stormcaller or Cabalist specc.
Swarmlord Khargroth raid composition
As I said, this fight is going to require a bit of AoE dps but also you will need decent single target damage. This gives you the the opportunity to mix and match classes and speccs for your raid. For once, this fight is melee friendly so you can be in melee if you wish to do so and bring as many warriors as your guild roster can provide.
For this boss we used:
2 tanks: our eternal 1 warrior 1 cleric combo.
2 healers: 1 tank healing Chloromancer and 1 sent/warden.
6 DPS: 1 Stormcalled, 1 dps warrior, 3 rogues – rangers (despite what you will initially think, Sabs are not good for this fight) and 1 cleric – inquisitor.
This boss doesn’t have a tight enrage timer so you can adapt the raid setup to your needs. The only thing you have to do is balance AoE with single target damage or you will end up getting overrun by adds, but you need enough single target damage to be able to push him down at a steady pace before the tank takes to much damage. A tank switch while adds are alive and he isn’t submerged it quite to impossible to execute without the boss gaining stacks.
Swarmlord Khargroth kill video
Again, this is a video recorded on PTS (test shard). This fight might change when it’s going to be released, I will update the video as soon as we get one. But this should give you an idea of what you will have to deal with when it get’s released.
Sit back and enjoy !
