Role-Specific Tips for Eredar Twins

2.1.

Healer Tips

Range is the most difficult aspect of this boss for Healers. It is important to communicate and ensure that the person tanking Grand Warlock Alythess is aware of their range relative to the stack where the Healers and Ranged DPS will be located.

2.2.

DPS Tips

Ensure there is a clear and emphasized way to tell who is going to be hit with Conflagration IconConflagration to avoid wiping the raid. If multiple people end up getting hit it will almost certainly be a wipe.

2.3.

Tank Tips

This fight can require two or three tanks depending on if you choose to use a Warlock to tank Grand Warlock Alythess. Tanks should position Lady Sacrolash in a way that they have easy access to the puddles of fire left over by Blaze IconBlaze to clear their stacks of Dark Touched IconDark Touched.

Strategy for Eredar Twins

4.1.

Warlock Tanking

This encounter can take advantage of using a Warlock to tank Grand Warlock Alythess but can also be done by a Protection Paladin. If your group decides to go the route where you use a Warlock ensure they are NOT specced into the talent Nether Protection IconNether Protection as it will cause Alythess to change targets. Any additional resistance is ignored by Alythess so it does not help, and the focus should be on raw health and any flat-percent damage mitigation.

4.2.

Pulling the Boss

The Eredar twins are both located standing on a circular platform below a set of stairs that overlooks the encounter area. All of your ranged DPS and Healers should remain on top of this ramp and stand on the lip where they can reach the bosses and members of the raid still while avoiding several mechanics as a result. The tank who is in charge of Grand Warlock Alythess should pull her a slight bit away from Lady Sacrolash toward the southern part of the room so they have clear space to place the patches on the ground from Blaze IconBlaze, while keeping them in range for people to clear their Dark Touched IconDark Touched debuffs. The Melee DPS should stack behind Sacrolash initially and then behind Alythess after Sacrolash has been defeated.

4.3.

Phase 1

The Eredar Twins is a single-phase encounter that gets considerably easier once the first of the two bosses is killed; the raid should focus on defeating Lady Sacrolash first. When in position the primary focus of the raid should be avoiding unnecessary damage caused by Conflagration IconConflagration; if a player is targeted with Conflagration they need to get out of the group as quickly as possible. For ranged DPS/Healers, they should run away from the group on the ledge toward the entrance of the room, whereas Melee DPS should run away from the stack and anywhere on the lower platform where they are more than 10 yards away from other players while still in range of Healers.

The rest of this fight is very simple. Tanks holding Lady Sacrolash will need to taunt when the other tank is disoriented by Confounding Blow IconConfounding Blow, players should look to reset their Dark Touched IconDark Touched/ Flame Touched IconFlame Touched debuffs often by taking the opposite type of damage, and Pyrogenics IconPyrogenics must be purged as quickly as possible by members of the raid to minimize damage on the Grand Warlock Alythess tank. The Tank holding Alythess should focus on getting out of the fire and positioning it well first and threat second as there is quite a while to build a healthy threat lead while the raid is burning down Sacrolash.
