Tips

Avoid standing in front of or behind the boss as he has both a dangerous breath and a tail attack.

Once Incineration debuffs go out on the group, expect big raid damage after 8 seconds and set up accordingly. This occurs every 50-55 seconds. Gale Blast also causes high raid damage when cast. Look out for the overlap of both mechanics around 2:30 into the fight, which is the preferential time to use Aura Mastery Icon Aura Mastery.

3.1.1.

Mythic

You are able to reset and be immune to the stacking Creeping Madness Icon Creeping Madness stacks with Blessing of Freedom Icon Blessing of Freedom, which can also be used on other raid members should they reach high stacks.
