Gorefiend is the demon warlock that the orc warlock Teron'gor transformed into.

Background

As a demon, Gorefiend is a part of the aberrations that had been formed as a result of Light and Void energies bleeding together at the borders of the Twisting Nether. As a demon, Gorefiend embraced its furious passions and reveled in pushing the boundaries of its power, heedless of the consequences. Before long, the bloodthisty demon clawed its way into the physical universe, terrorizing mortal civilizations and bringing ruin to world after world.

Adventure Guide

Falling into the heart of the mausoleum Auchindoun, the Shadow Council lieutenant Teron'gor gorged upon hundreds of draenei souls, becoming a bloated abomination in the process. More than just an orc now, Teron'gor gave up his old name and has taken a new one: Gorefiend.

Designer notes

We laid the groundwork for this encounter in Auchindoun, further reinforcing the rule that if you don’t actually see a boss die, it’s quite possible that you haven’t seen the last of them. Of course, the inverse of that rule isn’t necessarily true—Kael’thas says “hello.” In any case, Gorefiend hearkens back to encounters like C’Thun and Yogg-Saron, where players are devoured and must overcome spirits inside the stomach of the bloated monstrosity to prevent them from escaping to attack the raid.

The Abilities

Devourer of Souls — Players who are killed are not slain outright. Instead, Gorefiend devours their souls, placing them in his stomach where they will be Digested. Players who have recently been consumed are afflicted with Gorefiend's Corruption and if they die again their soul is lost.

  • Corrupted Soul — When a player is slain a fragment of their soul is left behind and deeply corrupted by Gorefiend. The result is a being of pure malice, bent on consuming the living. Only when this fragment is destroyed will the player who was consumed be freed from Gorefiend's stomach.
  • Resisting — After 30 sec. the player tied to this soul will be Digested.
  • Digest — Gorefiend consumes anyone who spends 40 sec inside his stomach, inflicting 1500000 Shadow damage.
  • Gorefiend's Corruption — Exposure to Gorefiend has taxed the soul of the player and they can no longer be consumed upon death. In Mythic difficulty Gorefiend's Corruption is only removed when a player collapses an Unstable Soul.

Gathering Darkness — Inflicts 150000 Shadow damage to all enemies. This attack is only used by Gorefiend whenever he is not actively engaged in melee combat.

Shadow of Death   — The shadow of death looms. Kills the target after 5 sec.

Touch of Doom — Inflicts up to 162000 Shadow damage to all allies after 8 sec. Allies farther from the detonation take less damage. The explosion also forms a Doom Well at the feet of the afflicted player.

  • Doom Well — Inflicts 105750 Shadow damage every 1.5 sec while standing within the zone.

Touch of Doom — Inflicts up to 162000 Shadow damage to all allies after 8 sec. Allies farther from the detonation take less damage.

Shared Fate — Gorefiend twists the soul of a player, rooting that target and binding them to 2 other players. This effect inflicts 51750 Shadow damage to all targets every 2 sec until all afflicted players are within 6 yards of the rooted player. All afflicted players take 275000 Shadow damage if the effect is not canceled within 10 sec.

Surging Shadows — Causes each player to emit a pulse of shadowy magic that inflicts 56181 to 59064 Shadow damage to all allies within 5 yards.

Crushing Darkness — Creates a series of explosions that inflict 196218 to 206282 Shadow damage to all enemies within 4 yds of the impact.

Feast of Souls — Gorefiend regenerates energy over 1 min., inflicting 43875 to 46125 Shadow damage every 2 sec. In addition, Unstable Souls are pulled towards Gorefiend. Each soul that reaches Gorefiend increases his energy by 10. While consuming souls Gorefiend's defenses are lowered, increasing damage taken by 100%. Upon reaching 100 energy, Gorefiend begins his assault once more.

  • Unstable Soul — Touching an Unstable Soul causes it to collapse inflicting 53625 to 56375 Shadow damage to all players and an additional 13125 to 21875 Shadow damage to players within 10 yds. of the detonation. In Mythic difficulty Gorefiend's Corruption is only removed when a player collapses an Unstable Soul.
