How to Kill Kargath Bladefist - Last Boss in Shattered Halls - World of Warcraft

Aug 17, 2007
Kargath Bladefist is the final boss of the Shattered Halls instance located in central Hellfire Peninsula. This essay will discuss the proper method to defeat him.

Bladefist can be a tough encounter, even for experienced players. Those who are new to this fight should spend a few minutes and read this essay in its entirety so that they can understand what they are up against when they are fighting Kargath Bladefist. He is not a push-over, and if you do not respect his abilities he will wipe your party very quickly. Pay attention to what this article teaches!

Mana users will definitely need to bring mana potions or any other items that may help with mana-regeneration (mana oil, food, etc.) Other party members will need to bring their own healing potions and bandages. Successfully traveling through Shattered Halls and killing the first two bosses takes considerable time. Respect the time of others and make sure you come prepared for this knock-down, drag out fight!

The problems involved with killing Bladefist are as follows:

Blade Dance - Kargath will ping-pong around his cage every thirty seconds and do a considerable amount of damage to anyone unlucky enough to be in his path. For this reason, it is best for everyone to stand apart from each other. The fewer players who get hit by Blade Dance the better chance you will have to defeat him.

Elite Assassins - These will spawn periodically from the hallway. They will come up the stairs, enter the arena, and typically go straight for your healer. Priority needs to be given to these as soon as they enter the arena. If you do not kill them quickly enough, they will keep spawning and eventually overwhelm your party.


Your tank needs to engage Bladefist and keep him in the exact center of the arena throughout the entire fight. Your tank will remain in that spot and focus on maintaining Kargath's aggro.

Your healer should position herself in an opposite corner from the stairs. She should get as far into the corner as possible and stay there for the duration of the fight. Also, she should use a mana potion as early as possible as the fight is considerably long, and she will definitely be able to use a second potion.

Ranged DPS should position themselves in the immediate left and right corners as you enter the arena. They should each get into their own corner and stay there throughout the fight.

You will need one melee DPS or AOE DPS positioned between Kargath and the stairs. This player will focus on the ads when they arrive from the hallway. This player needs to be able to perform a high amount of DPS in a short period of time. Rogues and mages are usually best for this position.

Ranged DPS should stay focused on Kargath until an Assassin enters the arena. At that point, both ranged DPS and the melee/AOE DPS should focus on the Assassin and kill it as quick as possible. As soon as the Assassin is dead, all DPS should resume on Kargath.

When Bladefist performs his ping-pong attack, he will inevitably hit at least one player other than the tank (you may get lucky and he'll miss everyone, but that is usually not the case). That player needs to use their healing potion or one of their bandages and allow your healer to conserve her mana for the tank and for herself. Your healer should be allowed to focus only on herself and the tank. Everyone else must bring their own bandages and/or healing potions.

This is a proven strategy for killing Kargath Bladefist. It may take you a few attempts before everyone understands their roles, but you will eventually beat him. Good luck!
