We advise you to use the following essences against Abyssal Commander Sivara.

3.1.

Tips

When your Rimefrost Icon Rimefrost or Septic Taint Icon Septic Taint is about to expire, you should move to the edge of the room and away from other players to drop a pool. Use Transcendence: Transfer Icon Transcendence: Transfer to get back in - this is especially important on Heroic Mode, as excessive movement with the Poison Brand will harm you.

Some groups may have you soak Crushing Reverberation Icon Crushing Reverberation alone. This is not an issue for Brewmasters at all, as Stagger Icon Stagger reduces the immediate damage massively.

For more information, please refer to our Abyssal Commander Sivara strategy guide.

For more information, please refer to our Radiance of Azshara strategy guide.

We advise you to use the following essences against Lady Ashvane.

6.1.

Tips

Stick to the edge of the boss arena, staying away from any Coral Growth Icon Coral Growths, as these spawn bubbles that will replenish the bosses shield. Kite her around the arena slowly - when you are Barnacle Bash Icon Barnacle Bashed, a pool of Cutting Coral Icon Cutting Coral will form. You should swap after each bash.

For more information, please refer to our Lady Ashvane strategy guide.

7.

Orgozoa

We advise you to use the following talents against Orgozoa.

We advise you to use the following essences against Orgozoa.

7.1.

Tips

Tanks have an important job on this fight. The boss' melee swings apply Desensitizing Sting Icon Desensitizing Sting, reducing the damage you take by 10% for each stack. Adds spawn throughout the encounter, and when they die, they leave behind Amniotic Splatter Icon Amniotic Splatter, a pool which must be soaked but deals very high damage.

By swapping as soon as each set of adds spawns, the soaking tank will have enough stacks to take all 3 pools. If you are too slow to kill the adds and your debuff runs out, you can use Dampen Harm Icon Dampen Harm, Zen Meditation Icon Zen Meditation, and healer externals to soak them.

In Phase 2, the Dreadcoil Hulk add will have a stomp you must soak. You can share the damage of this, but should be able to take it alone.

You can use Stampeding Roar Icon Stampeding Roar during the intermission to boost the raid's movement speed down the ramp.

For more information, please refer to our Orgozoa strategy guide.

8.

The Queen's Court

We advise you to use the following talents against The Queen's Court.

We advise you to use the following essences against The Queen's Court.

8.1.

Tips

Swap when the Pashmar tank's Pashmar's Touch Icon Pashmar's Touch stacks fall off. Do your first swap whenever convenient, probably around 5 stacks or so.

Use heavy cooldowns if you are tanking Pashmar when Zealous Eruption Icon Zealous Eruption is cast. You should also use healer externals during the Obey or Suffer Icon Obey or Suffer decree, as you will be unhealable 50% of the time.

For more information, please refer to our The Queen's Court strategy guide.

9.

Za'qul, Harbinger of Ny'alotha

We advise you to use the following talents against Za'qul, Harbinger of Ny'alotha.

We advise you to use the following essences against Za'qul, Harbinger of Ny'alotha.

9.1.

Tips

One tank takes damage from the boss during this fight, and the other takes 50% of the damage the boss tank takes. You must remain within 12 yards of each other and be the closest players to each other at the start of each phase. It is likely that Brewmaster will be the preferred tank for boss tanking.

For more information, please refer to our Za'qul, Harbinger of Ny'alotha strategy guide.

10.

Queen Azshara

We advise you to use the following talents against Queen Azshara.

We advise you to use the following essences against Queen Azshara.

10.1.

Tips

In the first phase, each tank takes one of Aethanel and Cyranus. They will occasionally cast Painful Memories Icon Painful Memories and Longing Icon Longing. When Painful Memories is cast, move the bosses out of line of sight of each other. Similarly, move them so they can see each other after Longing. Failing to do so will grant Tormented, increasing their damage greatly. You will have to kite the bosses slowly during Longing, as Cursed Heart Icon Cursed Heart pools spawn underneath each boss. For this reason and because you will want to cleave the bosses, it may be better to stack the bosses during Longing. Additionally, swap when you reach 3 stacks of Cold Blast Icon Cold Blast.

Phase Two has Queen Azshara enter the arena and become tankable. The Ancient Ward nearest her will be drained of energy, so pay attention and move if you must. An Ancient Ward reaching 0 energy will end the encounter. Alternatively, being nearest the Ward of Power will charge it, making the fight more difficult. Avoid this.

She will apply a stacking Arcane Vulnerability Icon Arcane Vulnerability debuff, which you simply swap on occasionally. She should be positioned so players can easily leave line of sight when they need to.

Ring of Peace Icon Ring of Peace is useful to stop adds when they march towards the Rude of Power.

In Phase 3, a Loyal Myrmidon is spawned. Swap between the add and the boss as you would before. The Myrmidon should be tanked with a Tidemistress between it and the raid, as it casts Charged Spear Icon Charged Spear, which is used to kill the Tidemistresses.

The last Phase only adds a healing debuff for the tanks to swap on.

For more information, please refer to our Queen Azshara strategy guide.
