Tips

If you get targeted with Overflow Icon Overflow, run to the edges of the room to drop the pool that spawns when the debuff expires. Use Divine Protection Icon Divine Protection to survive through the damage on higher difficulties, or immune it with Divine Shield Icon Divine Shield. You can also use Blessing of Sacrifice Icon Blessing of Sacrifice to help someone who cannot immune their Overflow Icon Overflow debuff.

Soak Crushing Reverberation Icon Crushing Reverberation with your assigned group, if tanks are not soloing it.

Overwhelming Barrage Icon Overwhelming Barrage is likely to cause high raid damage, from the bolts themselves and from the inevitable Unstable Mixture Icon Unstable Mixture explosions that ensue. Make sure to have plenty of Glimmers out ahead of time and to use Aura Mastery Icon Aura Mastery to mitigate the damage taken.

There are no significant changes to the fight for Holy Paladin on Mythic difficulty.

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

4.1.

Tips

Darkest Depths Icon Darkest Depths reduces all healing by 100%, so make sure to track it on your raid frames so that you do not waste recources and time healing debuffed players. Also, make sure to avoid positioning mistakes that will lead to your death through Gaze from Below Icon Gaze from Below and Bioelectric Feelers Icon Bioelectric Feelers. If you gain Bioluminescence Icon Bioluminescence from the Jellyfish during the intermissions, use Divine Shield Icon Divine Shield to remove it.

On Mythic difficulty, Piercing Barb Icon Piercing Barb is often not worth soaking as a group, due to the danger of multiple people dying if Bioelectric Feelers Icon Bioelectric Feelers is activated because of the group's movement. If you get targeted by Piercing Barb, use Divine Shield Icon Divine Shield if solo, or Divine Protection Icon Divine Protection if grouped. Aura Mastery Icon Aura Mastery is a great tool to mitigate the shared damage as well.

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.

Tips

Dispel Arcane Bomb Icon Arcane Bomb only when the player is in a place where the bomb will not hit anyone or clog the raid's way through the encounter area.

During Ancient Tempest Icon Ancient Tempest, make sure to be close to your raid group, as vision is reduced and you will not be able to heal or dispel anyone that is not close to you. You can use Divine Steed Icon Divine Steed to get past the intermission faster, minimizing the risk of deaths. Divine Shield Icon Divine Shield can be used to immune the tornado knockbacks.

There are no significant changes to the fight for Holy Paladins in Mythic difficulty.

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

6.

Lady Ashvane

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

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

6.1.

Tips

Rippling Wave Icon Rippling Wave will cause a large burst of damage to the raid whenever it is cast, no matter how well your group soaks it. Be prepared for this damage with healing cooldowns, and keep in mind that the damage grows as the encounter progresses, due to scaling with the amount of Coral Growth Icon Coral Growths area.

Stand between the boss and the Coral Growth Icon Coral Growths to help soak Rippling Wave Icon Rippling Wave bubbles before they heal the boss' shield. During intermissions, if targeted by Arcing Azerite Icon Arcing Azerite, position yourself such that you will destroy as many Coral Growth Icon Coral Growths as possible. Wind Rush Totem Icon Wind Rush Totem can help your group get to far away corals quickly.

In Mythic difficulty, Empowered Rippling Wave Icon Empowered Rippling Wave has equivalent power to three Rippling Wave Icon Rippling Wave, and Waterlogged Icon Waterlogged lasts for the whole encounter, and is not reset upon death. Use Aura Mastery Icon Aura Mastery to have the raid soak multiple Ripples in short succession.

Once the carapace is gone and you can damage the boss, Regenerative Coral Icon Regenerative Coral will limit the amount of Coral Growth Icon Coral Growths you want to destroy with each application of Arcing Azerite Icon Arcing Azerite to your group, as you might not have enough soakers, otherwise. Because the boss enrages after its carapace regenerates for the third time, you will want to contribute as much damage as possible while its health pool is vulnerable. This means pre-potting Unbridled Fury, and potentially using your Avenging Wrath Icon Avenging Wrath for pure damage output. The Cyclotronic punchcard from Mechagon is also a great way to generate damage.

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 will take massive damage at the start of their tanking cycle and are required to be topped up in order to survive the hits while they have low Desensitizing Sting Icon Desensitizing Sting stacks. Use Blessing of Sacrifice Icon Blessing of Sacrifice to help mitigate their damage intake.

Position yourself away from the rest of the raid if Arcing Current Icon Arcing Current is cast while you are affected by Incubation Fluid Icon Incubation Fluid, as this debuff will spread to people who are hit by its chain lightning effect. Raid healing will get progressively more intensive as more targets are affected by the debuff.

Use Aura Mastery Icon Aura Mastery on the latest Arcing Current when possible, since the ability scales with the amount of damage your raid takes.

Divine Shield Icon Divine Shield can be used to soak Amniotic Splatter Icon Amniotic Splatter and Powerful Stomp Icon Powerful Stomp, if required.

Use Beacon of Light Icon Beacon of Light on a DPS with Incubation Fluid Icon Incubation Fluid. Due to the nature of the tank damage, your tanks will not require a Beacon.

You can use Divine Steed Icon Divine Steed to spread faster for Arcing Current or to move down the ramp faster during the intermission.

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

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

Zealous Eruption Icon Zealous Eruption deals a huge amount of damage to anyone outside the bubble area around Silivaz, so make sure you are inside and focus healing into anyone who is forced to be outside, such as the tank who is on the other boss.

Potent Spark Icon Potent Sparks deal a large burst of damage to the raid when they die, and slowly lose health over time. This means you should be prepared to quickly heal the raid back to full whenever one detonates, so that no one will die from the next detonation. The spark spawn timer lines up perfectly with Avenging Wrath Icon Avenging Wrath if specced into Vision of Protection.

Obey or Suffer Icon Obey or Suffer causes Suffering Icon Suffering whenever a player is damaged, which cuts off all healing done to that player for 5 seconds. This can be removed by on others with Blessing of Protection Icon Blessing of Protection. Make sure to track this on your raid frames, so that you do not waste Mana healing these targets, and so that you can queue up heals to hit as soon as the debuff drops.

In Mythic difficulty, there will always be a decree up, leading to some nasty overlaps. Be sure to use Area Mastery for some of the spark plus mechanic overlaps. This boss has a tight enrage timer as well, so be sure to maximise your DPS whenever possible. All decrees can be pre-bubbled. Deferred and Obey can be removed by Binding of Protection.
