[70] Eric’s Magtheridon’s Lair guide


Magtheridon’s Lair is an end level 25 man raid instance. IF you’re looking for a group (LFG) to Magtheridon’s Lair, it will be called “maggy”. The instance is located at the buttom of helfire citadel. Make sure you use the right meeting stone, not the one to Helfire ramparts or Blood furnace. this raid instance is the shortest raid instance in the game, it takes maximum 20 minutes, if all works well, and are too not so difficult.
You will need at least half karazhan epic gear (pvp season 2 can do it too) and other half mostly superior as dps. Healers will need a little more and tank more.

classes will need:


1600 attack power. 8000 hp. 25% crit rating.

and spell DPS will need:
900 spell power. 25% spell crit rating.

12k hp. 490 defence rating.

15k hp 510 defence rating.

900 spell damage. 10000 mana.


Your raid should look like this:
1 main tank
4 off tank
5-6 healers
3 warlocks
3 paladins (healers are included here) (not optimal)
2 warriors (tanks are included here) (not optimal)
1 hunter (not optimal)
5 ranged dps (includes hunter, warlocks)
and last 3-6 spots are random dps’s.


main tank

3 dps

off tank

When all is in start buff up and begin to pull. let the tank do it. When have killed the first 3 orcs turn left and kill the patrol.When they are killed kill the last group of orcs in the bottom of the left way. Then go up to the right way kill the last mobs until you see the boss: Magtheridon.

Make sure that all got buffs and tell them the tactics to all “first time magtheridon’s lair raiders” listen below:

there are 5 mini mosses in a circle around magtheridon. DONT ATTACK THEM before all is ready.
Healer and tank from grp 1 stay at first mini boss at the entrance. Give the mini boss a mark(example a skull).

Healer and tank from grp 2 to the next one to left. Give the mini boss a mark(example a cross).

Healer and tank from grp 3 to the third to left. Give the mini boss a mark(example a circle).

Healer and tank from grp 4 to the fourth to left. Give mini the boss a mark(example a tringle).

Healer and tank from grp 5 to the last one. Give the mini boss a mark(example a diamond).

All dps’ stay at the entrance.

When all is ready the dps will need kill the first mini boss to left in a horde. when the first boss are dead move to the second to left, then the third to left until you’re around.
When all mini bosses are dead Magtheridon will be released and all off tanks will go dps.


damage: 6000 on tank and around 11000 on cloth.
HP: around 3.300.000 or 3300k
spells: Blast nova, 2000-3000 damage every in the room per 2 sec in 10 secs.


This part is the most important.
5 players (prefer range or spell classes) will need to click these cubes when Magtheridon cast his BLAST NOVA or the raid will wipe.
the cubes look like this:


when you’re done Magtheridon he will normally drop these things below:
Magtheridon’s Head
Pit Lord’s Satchel
Chestguard of the Fallen Champion
Chestguard of the Fallen Defender
Chestguard of the Fallen Hero

he can drop that too:
Black Sack of Gems


when you start the quest from Magtheridon’s Headyou will recieve The Fall of Magtheridonyou can turn in, in Honor Hold and you will choose between these nice rings:
A’dal’s Signet of Defense
Band of Crimson Fury
Naaru Lightwarden’s Band
Ring of the Recalcitrant

    Great guide, might want toGreat guide, might want to change the defense rating on main tank because all tanks should have 490 defense and don’t need to go higher at level 70. But anyways great guide.
