Table of Contents

General Information

On this page, you will find a list of changes between Normal/Heroic modes and Mythic mode, as well as a working strategy to defeat Elerethe Renferal in The Emerald Nightmare in Mythic mode.

The other pages of our Elerethe Renferal guide can be accessed from the table of contents on the right.

1. Mythic Changes

On Mythic difficulty, Elerethe will gain multiple new abilities, as well as large increases to her health and damage output.

Elerethe uses an additional ability depending on what platform she is currently on. On the first platform she uses Tangled Webs Icon Tangled Webs, on the second she uses Violent Winds Icon Violent Winds, and on the third Nightmare Spawn Icon Nightmare Spawn.

1.1. Spider Form

Pain Lash Icon Pain Lash modifies Web of Pain Icon Web of Pain. It will cause any players that collide with the beam that links the players targeted by Web of Pain to take a large amount of Nature damage, and be knocked back a fair distance.

Tangled Webs Icon Tangled Webs is still quite unclear, as it appeared to be quite buggy during Mythic testing. What we know for a fact is that Elerethe will target random members of the raid with Tangled Webs Icon Tangled Webs, which will summon Venomous Spiderlings if enemies remain standing on it for more than 2 seconds at a time. The Web lasts for 80 seconds.

  • It is unclear if jumping will prevent Spiderlings from spawing.
  • It is unclear how many raid members are targeted by Tangled Webs.
  • It is unclear if you can bait the Webs to a certain area to maximize room to maneuver.

Nightmare Spawn Icon Nightmare Spawn causes egg sacs to continuously grow over time. Fully grown egg sacs release Venomous Spiderlings when run over. Elerethe will pop all grown egg sacs during Vile Ambush Icon Vile Ambush.

1.2. Spiderlings

On Mythic difficulty, you no longer have the option of stacking the Spiderlings with Elerethe when tanking them, this is because of Swarm Icon Swarm. For each Spiderling that is within rage of Elerethe, she will gain a 25% increase to damage dealt, and 25% attack speed. This ability stacks indefinitely, and will continue to empower the boss per each Spiderling in her range.

1.3. Roc Form

In her Roc Form, Elerethe uses the ability Violent Winds Icon Violent Winds. This knocks back any player in front of her, and deal increasingly deadly Shadow damage every second for the duration of the channel.

The strength of the pushback, and the speed at which Wind Burn Icon Wind Burn is applied is drastically reduced by the number of players that are hit by this ability.

Players hit by Wind Burn receive stacks of Wind Burn Icon Wind Burn, which increases the damage they take from Violent Winds by 12% per stack.

It is unclear if the Wind Burn debuff stays with players throughout the length of the fight, so it is currently unknown if a soaking rotation needs to be established. This will be updated as more information becomes readily available.

2. Mythic Strategy

This is based on Alpha/Beta testing and there has not been that much Mythic testing, so this part of the guide is going to be a bit bare until we see the actual tuning of the fight to give a proper strategy.

2.1. Spider Form

Players that are targeted by Web of Pain Icon Web of Pain must do their absolute best to stay stacked together to minimize the size of the beam that links them together, thus reducing the chance fellow raid members have of coming in contact with the beam, and taking damage from Pain Lash Icon Pain Lash.

Spiderlings need to be tanked away from the tank, because of Swarm Icon Swarm. On the third platform, this (together with Nightmare Spawn Icon Nightmare Spawn) will cause a massive Dripping Fangs Icon Dripping Fangs building on the Spiderlings tank after Vile Ambush Icon Vile Ambush.

2.2. Roc Form

On the second platform, there might be a need for a soaking rotation for Violent Winds Icon Violent Winds, depending on how the ability works on live servers.
