FIGHT OVERVIEW
  • Fight that alternates between 2 phases. The fight unfolds in that order: P1 - P2 - P1 - P2 - P1

  • In P1 you fight the boss near elemental altars. He gets specific abilities based on the altar he's closest to. You should visit 2 different altars each P1.

  • The longer you stay at an altar, the more damages the raid takes while that altar is active, so you should not revisit them.

  • At 100 energy, Kurog becomes immune and P2 starts. 2 adds spawn based on the altars you visited in the previous P1. Once they're dead, P2 ends.

  • After the second P2, one last P1 starts. Finish Kurog before he enrages and kills you.

Co Tank Weakaura By Causese

Another must have by Causese if you play or are planning to play tank. It informs you when to taunt, and how your co-tank is doing with their mechanics.


Make sure to checkout the Causese Sound addon to also pair it with appropriate sound announcements.
