Overview of Bosses in Throne of the Tides

Here we will give you a full rundown of what you can expect from each of the bosses found here on both Normal and Heroic difficulties as well as the items they drop.

    • Enrage Icon Enrage
  • Naz'jar Tempest Witch
    • Chain Lightning Icon Chain Lightning

Spread out when engaging Lady Naz'jar as she has multiple AoE abilities. Dispel the Fungal Spores Icon Fungal Spores disease debuff if possible, and be ready to move out of any Summon Geyser Icon Summon Geysers placed on the ground under your feet. She will also often attack the tank with Shock Blast Icon Shock Blast, dealing deadly Nature damage; interrupt this as much as possible. When Lady Naz'jar reaches 60% and 30% health she will channel Waterspout Icon Waterspout, making her immune to all attacks and spells.

During this 1-minute cast, 1 Naz'jar Honor Guard and 2 Naz'jar Tempest Witchs will spawn in and attack players. These much be either crowd controlled or quickly killed as they are very dangerous. Focus down the Naz'jar Tempest Witchs first, interrupting them as much as possible and dispelling the Lightning Surge Icon Lightning Surge, or running away from your allies when they use it. Avoid being in front of the Naz'jar Honor Guard as it cleaves targets with Arc Slash Icon Arc Slash.

Ozumat

  • Ozumat Phase One

    • Blight of Ozumat Icon Blight of Ozumat
  • Neptulon
    • Tidal Surge Icon Tidal Surge

The Ozumat fight is unique, having you mostly focus on dealing with adds before facing the sea kraken himself. During the first phase you will fight waves of Deep Murloc Invaders, which should be simply AoE'd down quickly. The Vicious Mindlashers should be interrupted whenever possible to stop their Brain Spike Icon Brain Spike mana burn; and Unyielding Behemoth should be focused down quickly and stunned as much as often as you are able. After killing enough adds, phase two will start.

Phase two consists of killing the 3 Faceless Sappers around the room. While in this phase, a Blight Beast will periodically spawn in and move slowly towards their target. These should be picked up by a tank and kited as they move very slow and hit rather hard. Once all 3 Faceless Sappers are killed, the third and final phase starts. In this phase players are buffed with Tidal Surge Icon Tidal Surge, increasing health and healing by 500%, and damage dealt by 2000%. This allows you to quickly dispatch Ozumat in this phase as he has a much higher HP pool than an average dungeon boss.
