This guide will provide you with all the information you need regarding the trash mobs within the Firelands instance.
We will cover, briefly yet thoroughly, all the relevant mechanics of the mobs, as well as all reputation and loot gains that can be obtained.
1. General Observations↑top
While the Firelands raid instance does seem to be overflowing with trash mobs, you should not concern yourselves. A lot of trash is skippable, and there are few, if any, groups which are linked together. Overall, this makes killing the trash rather easy.
We believe that practical information is a lot more useful than detailed explanations, so we will not go into deep discussions of abilities or mechanics.
We will handle each trash pack individually, though sometimes, other packs might patrol into your raid, or raid members might accidentally pull extra packs. If this happens, your raid will simply have to prioritise and make use of cooldowns to survive.
Killing trash mobs within the Firelands raid instance provides you (and your raid) with more than just access to the bosses. Indeed, all trash mobs offer reputation gains with The Avengers of Hyjal faction. In addition to this, most mobs have a chance to drop epic Bind of Equip items of 378 item level as well as Tailoring, Leatherworking and Blacksmithing patterns.
2.1. Reputation Gains
The Avengers of Hyjal reputation is gained within the Firelands raid instance, exclusively. Below, we detail the exact means of reputation gains.
These reputation gains are, of course, affected by guild perks and the Human Racial, Diplomacy.
Trash mobs in the Firelands have a chance to drop one of the following items, all of which can later be upgraded to a heroic version by turning in the normal version and a Crystallized Firestone to Lurah Wrathvine at the entrance of the instance:
The following profession patterns can also drop:
3. Abilities and Strategy↑top
In this section, we will detail the recommended strategy for each type of trash mob which your raid must defeat in order to gain access to the bosses within the Firelands raid instance.
3.1. Shannox Trash
In order to properly engage Shannox, your raid needs to defeat Molten Lords, Molten Surgers, Fire Scorpions, Ancient Core Hounds, Hell Hounds, Unbound Pyrelords and Flamewakers.
After killing a certain amount of trash mobs, Shannox will spawn and begin patrolling in a wide area around The Molten Fields. Your raid will have to clear a substantial amount of trash in order to have room to move during the encounter.
3.1.1. Molten Lords
Molten Lords are large elemental mobs. When dealing with Molten Lords, the following things are important:
3.1.2. Molten Surgers
When dealing with Molten Surgers, the following things are important:
3.1.3. Hell Hounds
When dealing with these mobs, the following things are important:
3.1.4. Fire Scorpion Packs
There are several trash packs comprised of Fire Scorpions and Giant Fire Scorpions. When dealing with these packs, the following things are important:
3.1.5. Ancient Core Hounds
When dealing with these mobs, the following things are important:
3.1.6. Unbound Pyrelord packs
These packs are comprised of one Unbound Pyrelord and several Unbound Smoldering Elementals. When dealing with these packs, the following things are important:
3.1.7. Flamewaker Packs
Flamewakers walk around in large packs, and while it may seem like the different kinds of Flamewakers and their abilities will quickly overwhelm you, they are a fairly simple trash pack to deal with.
The most important thing is to kill the Flamewaker Cauterizers first, as they have the ability to heal other mobs. Crowd control can be used to make these packs even easier.
3.1.8. Flamewaker Overseers
Flamewaker Overseers perform a cleave attack which deals Fire damage, split among all enemies in front of the mob. Your raid should stack up for it.
3.1.9. Unstable Magma
Unstable Magma packs consist of a Flamewaker Subjugator, several Flamewaker Animators and one Unstable Magma. When dealing with these packs, the following things are important:
3.1.10. Fire Turtle Packs
Fire Turtle Hatchlings and Patriarch Fire Turtles form groups, although each of these are also found by themselves in certain places. When dealing with them, the following things are imporant:
3.2. Beth'tilac Trash
In order to reach Beth'tilac, your raid will need to kill a Molten Lord, Hell Hounds and a few Flamewakers. In addition to these mobs, which we have already covered, you will have to defeat several Cinderweb packs.
These are comprised of Cinderweb Drones, Cinderweb Spinners and Cinderweb Spiderlings are present in various packs along the way to Beth'tilac. When dealing with these mobs, the following things are important:
3.3. Lord Rhyolith Trash
The trash up to Lord Rhyolith consists of a gauntlet event, which will require your raid to quickly move up the slope. Your tanks will have to hold aggro on the large number of Fire Elementals present.
Once at the top of the slope, you will face and defeat Kaz the Everburning. He presents no challenges to raids, but on dying he spawns a large amount of Fire Elementals which need to be DPS-ed down one by one to prevent them from multiplying.
3.4. Alysrazor Trash
The trash to Alysrazor presents your raid with two Blazing Monstrosities, several Harbingers of Flame and two Egg Piles. The Blazing Monstrosities deal heavy fire damage to your raid, but can be mounted by raid members, and be used, as vehicles, to destroy the Egg Piles.
Egg Piles spawn numerous spiders which your tanks will need to pick up, and your DPS will need to kill.
The Harbingers of Flame should be interrupted as much as possible while being killed.
3.5. Baleroc Trash
Baleroc is guarded by two packs of two Flame Archons each, as well as by two Molten Flamefathers. The Flame Archon packs can be pulled independently of each other and of the Molten Flamefathers, and the Flamefathers are not linked among themselves either.
Flame Archons channel a fire attack in front of them, and should be faced away from the raid.
Molten Flamefathers spawn volcanoes, which in turn spawn several Magmakin mobs. The volcanoes, and subsequent Magmakin need to be killed by your raid.
3.6. Staghelm Trash
The trash before Majordomo Staghelm is comprised of multiple Druids of the Flame. As you approach them, and enter the arena where you fight Majordomo Staghelm, your raid will receive constant Fire damage from these mobs. This damage ceases when they are engaged.
While fighting this trash, the following things are important:
3.7. Ragnaros Trash
Before your raid can reach Ragnaros, you will have to face a Lava Wielder and two Molten Spewers.
The Lava Wielder will occasionally cover segments of the corridor where you are fighting him in fire. Simply stand in a safe location, where you will not take damage.
The Molten Spewers are located inside the lava, on either side of the walkway leading to Ragnaros. They cannot leave the lava, and your raid will have to engage both at the same time. When fighting Molten Spewers, the following things are important:
