Greetings and welcome to our strategy guide for the Sunwell Plateau raid in World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade Classic! Located on the Isle of Quel’Danas, Sunwell Plateau is the last raid in Phase 6 for World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade Classic.

Unlike Mount Hyjal and Black Temple, Sunwell Plateau is the last raid to obtain Tier 6 gear. Sunwell Plateau consists of a total of 8 bosses that begins with Kalecgos and ending with Kil’jaeden. Just like Black Temple and Mount Hyjal, progression through this raid is linear and none of the bosses within are optional.

This guide aims to help you understand how best to prepare yourself and your raid group for Sunwell Plateau by giving you an overview of each encounter, providing an in-depth explanation of each boss, discussing positioning and how you can set yourself up for success. We will also cover the attunement process and how you can reach the entrance.

You can find a full list of gear that’s available in our Sunwell Plateau Loot section.

Attunement Process

Unlike most of the previous raids that have been released for The Burning Crusade Classic, there is no attunement process required to step foot into the raid. In addition to this, unlike when the raid originally was released, the entire raid will be available on May 12th.

Finding the Entrance to Sunwell Plateau

The most convenient and easiest way for players to make there way to the Isle of Quel’Danas, you will need to make your way to Shattrath City. Within Shattrath, there will be a portal you can take within the Terrace of Light. Keep in mind that in order to access this portal, you will need to be dismounted first. After using the portal to the Isle of Quel’Danas, you will need to make your way

Raid Preparation

Sunwell Plateau is a 25-man raid in The Burning Crusade Classic. Just like Black Temple and Mount Hyjal, Sunwell Plateau requires players to follow a linear order in defeating each boss. The bosses that can be found within Sunwell Plateau are:

1. Kalecgos / Sathrovarr the Corruptor
2. Brutallus

Boss Encounters

Kalecgos / Sathrovarr the Corruptor

  • Tanks
    • All Tanks:
      • After the 3rd portal, all tanks immediately enter the next portal after they are relieved and taunt the next boss right away.
      • Make sure there are healers nearby before taunting Sathrovarr off Kalec.

    • Tank A – Initial Tank
      • Quickly move Kalecgos to his original position and make sure his front & back aren’t facing the raid.
      • You will have fewer and fewer healers on you over time, consider using defensive cooldowns when there’s only a couple.
      • You will enter the 4th or 5th portal, the first portal after an offtank relieves you.
      • Protection Paladin: Use Divine Shield to reset your Arcane Buffet stacks when they’re getting high (8+).

    • Tank B – First Offtank
      • Enter the 1st portal, UNLESS tank C gets teleported. In that case, enter the 3rd portal.

    • Tank C – Second Offtank
      • Enter the 3rd portal — you are skipping the 2nd portal.
      • If you get ported earlier (portals 1 or 2), you will need to announce it on voice so the raid adjusts accordingly.

  • Healers
    • Be very careful with your threat if you get Wild Magic (Green) or Wild Magic (Black) at the start of the fight.
    • The first portal will be very difficult to heal as there are only 2 healers to deal with Sathrovarr’s high damage.
    • Sathrovarr’s Corrupting Strike will deal 10k shadow damage to the tank instantly and stun them; keep them topped off at all times.
    • Throw some heal-over-time spells on the tank before you enter a portal & are ejected from the spectral realm.
    • Wait a few moments before entering the portal if there are no other healers around, don’t leave the tank healer-less.
    • Holy Paladins: You can reset your Arcane Buffet stacks with Divine Shield to keep healing if necessary.

  • Ranged DPS
    • Be very careful with your threat if you get Wild Magic (White) or Wild Magic (Black) at the start of the fight.
    • Once “downstairs”, be careful with your threat if Kalec is tanking Sathrovarr.
    • Stack up with other ranged players & healers when fighting Sathrovarr.
    • Use your personal DPS cooldowns during Heroism / Bloodlust against Sathrovarr.
    • Shadow PriestsWarlocks: Be careful with your self-damage if Spectral Blast or Shadow Bolt Volley are coming up.

  • Melee DPS
    • Be very careful with your threat if you get Wild Magic (White) or Wild Magic (Black) at the start of the fight.
    • Stack up with other melee when fighting Kalecgos if you can’t be more than 10 yards away from each other.
    • Once “downstairs”, be careful with your threat if Kalec is tanking Sathrovarr.
    • Use your personal DPS cooldowns during Heroism / Bloodlust against Sathrovarr.
