Hi! I’m Hazel, and this is a guide to the Hungering Destroyer fight in Castle Nathria on Normal and Heroic difficulty. This fight’s Leech themed! The boss will personally leech increasingly more health off the tank every melee hit with Hungering Strikes. The amount resets when the boss changes targets, so this is why we tank swap. It’ll also slam it’s tank with Overwhelm now and then which hurts, and that’s a fine time to swap tanks. The overwhelmed one might want a bandaid. Gluttonous Miasma is kinda neat, this makes you immune to healing but you’ll leech health off of allies within 5 yards. You also get a DoT so you do need that help. Go make some friends and stand on them and drink their life essence. Volatile Ejection marks targets with a blue arrow overhead, then does a line attack in those directions. If you get hit by one, you’re sad, and if you get hit by two, you’re dead. Targets of this should spread out, possibly to designated locations and you should watch to make sure that you’re not in line with them.
Expunge will do an AOE around every player, and the lower your health is, the bigger your AOE. Healers need to top up the raid before Expunge lands and everyone will wanna spread out. At 100 energy, the boss will drag the raid towards him and leech health with consume. The closer to the boss you are, the worse the leech is. The tank should move the boss to an edge when Consume’s coming and everyone else needs to get and stay far away. Last, Desolate is just some unavoidable raid damage, and that’s the definition of a healer problem. On Normal, that’s it. On Heroic, you’ll start to see these Obliterating Rifts spawn after every Expunge goes off.
These do some damage and a knockback when popped, they last basically forever and they’ll start to get in your way real quick. The easiest thing looks like having players with good speed and immunities just run around and clear em up. Rogues with Cloak of Shadows, hunters with Turtle, paladins, demon hunters, etcetera. You could also line everybody up perfectly along the walls for Expunge so the orbs are just out of the way but honestly who has time for that. This is why we bring hunters. And that is the Hungering Destroyer in Castle Nathria! Come visit me on Twitch sometime, thanks for watching and have a wonderful, wonderful day. Bye!.
