Conduits: Ashen Remains, Niya’s tools: Burrs

Another pretty weak fight for destro. Play full single target and try to do as much damage in the last phase is your ultimate goal on this fight.

Conduits :Ashen Remains, Niya’s tools: Burrs

Maybe the strongest fight in the raid for destruction, min maxing your damage/pooling for when you have havoc will boost your damage a lot on this fight.

Sun King's Salvation

Conduits: Ashen Remains, First Strike

The more shards you can dump into Rain of Fire the more Infernals you will have up doing mass AoE damage.

Use the Wilfred's Sigil of Superior Summoning legendary if you are really just going for damage on this fight.

Single target boss just like Shriekwing, very straightforward. Make use of Demonic Circle to aid you during the fight.

Conduits: Ashen Remains, Niya’s tools: Burrs

There are a few adds that need to be burst down. This is a good boss to do a lot of boss damage on with passive cleave to the adds.

Both builds are viable on this boss, but I favor WIlfrids and Rain of Chaos paired with PI, however the single target build is just as strong. It just does not give you access to high AoE burst every 2 minutes which can be useful for this fight.

The Council of Blood

Single Target
15

Conduits: Ashen Remains, First Strike

This is a council boss where you need to kill them 1 by 1 so it's only worth using the other boss for shard regeneration. With really high shard regeneration and having access to lot of uptime on First Strike, this fight is very strong for a versatile spec like destruction.

Sludgefist

Single Target
15
25
30
35

Conduits: Ashen Remains, Niya’s tools: Burrs

Single target boss with medium movement. Due to damage amp on sludgefist this is the weakest fight in the raid for destro warlocks.

Stone Legion Generals

Heavy AoE

Conduits: Ashen Remains, First Strike

This boss has a lot of add waves spawning so our Infernals and Rain of Fire will be doing a lot of damage on this encounter. It's really important to use Havoc well for shard regeneration to get more Rain of Fires out, which will lead to more Infernals spawning.

Burning Rush is also really good with the winds and Demonic Portal in case you’re about to fall off so place it in the middle of the room.

Use Wilfred's Sigil of Superior Summoning legendary.

Sire Denathrius

Cleave

Conduits: Diabolic Bloodstone, Infernal Brand, Ashen Remains, Combusting Engine

This boss we don’t know too much about at this current moment in time however from what I've seen you will want to use Wilfred’s Sigil of Superior Summoning legendary.
