Grand Magistrix Elisande is the penultimate boss in the Nighthold.

Elisande once distinguished herself by resisting the Legion. She and her highborne followers broke away from Queen Azshara and the dark path she was taking, harnessing the power of the Eye of Aman'thul to create the Nightwell to protect Suramar from the Sundering. But over ten thousand years later, the Legion's arrival offered her no such recourse. She has cast her lot with the demons, hoping to once again use the power of the Nightwell — albeit this time in a very different sense — to save her people.



Grand Magistrix Elisande is a 3-phase encounter that is long and grueling. Elisande will manipulate the flow of time throughout the encounter, however, her abilities can also be manipulated by the time flow to the advantage of the raid. Overall, this fight is a test of your group's endurance of awareness, rather than a damage check, as many of the mechanics are instantly lethal if failed.







  • Pay special attention during periods of high damage, such as Elisande's Delphuric Beam Icon Delphuric Beam or Conflexive Burst Icon Conflexive Burst. Mapping healer cooldowns for these periods is a necessity on higher difficulties.
  • Targets with Permeliative Torment Icon Permeliative Torment will require extra attention and healing.





Mythic Notes


Bloodlust/Heroism/Time Warp

While it is possible to get 2 Bloodlust Icon Bloodlusts on this fight, it is recommended that you use Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust at the beginning of Phase 3. This phase is overall the most dangerous, and ending the fight as quickly as possible here is the priority. Elisande also performs few mechanics at the start of her phase, making this a good time due to the minimal movement. It also overlaps with a Time Elemental spawn, allowing you to quickly polish off the adds and obtain Fast Time Icon Fast Time.
