3.1. Damage Patterns and Ramp Timings

Damage Pattern Type - Variable

Major Damage Sources - Toxic Brand Icon Toxic Brand/Frost Mark Icon Frost Mark and Unstable Mixture Icon Unstable Mixture

Overwhelming Barrage Icon Overwhelming Barrage, occurring every 40 seconds, could be a possible ramp location, which lines up very well with The Ever-Rising Tide Icon The Ever-Rising Tide, Power Word: Radiance Icon Power Word: Radiance, and Halo Icon Halo. In general, aim to ramp for any period of the fight where a significant amount of Unstable Mixture will be triggered.

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

4. Blackwater Behemoth

We advise you to use the following talents against Blackwater Behemoth.

We advise you to use the following essences against Blackwater Behemoth.

4.1. Damage Patterns and Ramp Timings

Damage Pattern Type - Scripted

Major Damage Sources - Toxic Spine Icon Toxic Spine and Shock Pulse Icon Shock Pulse

Ensure you can ramp for the second Shock Pulse of each platform, as that Shock Pulse overlaps with Toxic Spine being out. Use Power Word: Radiance Icon Power Word: Radiance charges to help cover the players affected by Toxic Spine outside of that overlap. With the Toxic Spine debuff lasting 10 seconds, try to Radiance after the debuff has gone out and lowered their health, so you can abuse Radiance's smart application of Atonement Icon Atonement.

For more information, please refer to our Blackwater Behemoth strategy guide.

5. Radiance of Azshara

We advise you to use the following talents against Radiance of Azshara.

We advise you to use the following essences against Radiance of Azshara.

5.1. Damage Patterns and Ramp Timings

Damage Pattern Type - Scripted/Burst

Major Damage Sources - Unshackled Power Icon Unshackled Power

Unshackled Power is cast every 18 seconds during Phase 1 of the encounter. Aim for one use of Evangelism Icon Evangelism and one use of Rapture Icon Rapture per phase and ramp for as many other casts as possible, Mana and Power Word: Radiance Icon Power Word: Radiance charges permitting. During Phase 2 of the encounter, you can potentially ramp for the Gale Buffet Icon Gale Buffet casts.

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

6. Lady Ashvane

6.1. Damage Patterns and Ramp Timings

Damage Pattern Type - Scripted/Burst

Major Damage Sources - Rippling Wave Icon Rippling Wave

Rippling Wave is cast approximately 20 seconds into Phase 1 and then roughly every 30 seconds after that until she is pushed into Phase 2. The Ever-Rising Tide should be available for every cast. Maintain Atonement Icon Atonement on players with the Waterlogged Icon Waterlogged debuff, mana permitting. Little healing should be required in Phase 2. Try to conserve as much as possible for the next Phase 1.

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. Damage Patterns and Ramp Timings

Damage Pattern Type - Scripted/Constant

Major Damage Sources - Incubation Fluid Icon Incubation Fluid

Incubation Fluid will cause the damage taken in each phase to slowly ramp up in intensity the longer you are in the phase. We will want to focus most of our healing towards the end of each phase, when a large number of players have the debuff. Desensitizing Sting Icon Desensitizing Sting causes the boss to do less damage to the tank the longer they hold aggro. Due to the tank having no stacks of this when they first gain aggro, ensure they do not die immediately before this gets a chance to stack.

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. Damage Patterns and Ramp Timings

Damage Pattern Type - Scripted/Burst

Major Damage Sources - Potent Spark Icon Potent Spark and Form Ranks Icon Form Ranks

Ramp for as many of the Potent Spark explosions or Form Ranks AoE, prioritizing overlaps of the two mechanics. For dealing with the Repeat Performance Icon Repeat Performance mechanic, if you need to cover large healing with your cooldowns during this mechanic, try to alternate between Power Word: Shield Icon Power Word: Shield and Shadow Mend Icon Shadow Mend for ramps, as well as placing a cast between your Power Word: Radiance Icon Power Word: Radiance. For the burst portion of your cooldowns, try to place a single smite cast between your other spells. For example, Schism Icon Schism -> Smite Icon Smite -> Power Word: Solace Icon Power Word: Solace -> Smite Icon Smite -> Penance Icon Penance -> Smite Icon Smite.

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

Be prepared to focus any player that receives the System Shock Icon System Shock debuff as a result of activating a console.
