3. Abyssal Commander Sivara

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

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

3.1. Tips

There is a lot of potential movement on this encounter, due to trying to avoid your frost or poison bar filling up. Despite this movement, try to conserve charges of Angelic Feather Icon Angelic Feather when you have Frost Mark Icon Frost Mark, allowing you to use it for a burst of speed when you need to move for specific mechanics.

You will likely use Divine Hymn Icon Divine Hymn and Holy Word: Salvation Icon Holy Word: Salvation to counter the Overwhelming Barrage Icon Overwhelming Barrage. Coordinate this with your healing team so your healing cooldowns do not overlap.

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. Tips

There is a debuff (Darkest Depths Icon Darkest Depths) that all raid members start with on this encounter. This prevents all healing received by 100% and is counter-acted by obtaining the Bioluminescence Icon Bioluminescence buff. Be sure to track either one of these debuffs on your raid frames so you know which targets can receive healing throughout the encounter.

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

This boss is much like the Wrath of Azshara boss in the Legion 5-man dungeon Eye of Azshara. Your main responsibility on this encounter will be dispelling Arcane Bomb Icon Arcane Bomb when the target player has reached their safe destination, which you can do with Purify Icon Purify or, if that is on cooldown, Mass Dispel Icon Mass Dispel.

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

There looks to be a significant amount of raid damage all throughout Phase 1 from Rippling Wave Icon Rippling Wave. Large chunks of it can be covered by your healing team staggering raid cooldowns, such as Divine Hymn Icon Divine Hymn and Holy Word: Salvation Icon Holy Word: Salvation. In between these cooldowns, your regular AoE healing priority should be used. Keep an eye on the health of people tasked with soaking Rippling Wave Icon Rippling Wave so they do not perish doing so.

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

Due to tanks not starting the fight with any stacks of Desensitizing Sting Icon Desensitizing Sting, you may want to use Guardian Spirit Icon Guardian Spirit in the first few seconds each tank is tanking with low stacks, to ensure they stay alive while building more stacks up. Talenting into Guardian Angel Icon Guardian Angel will help reduce the cooldown of Guardian Spirit, allowing you to cast it more frequently.

During the intermission, there is a lot of movement and potentially a lot of damage going out. Do not be afraid to cast Holy Nova Icon Holy Nova while on the move if you are grouped up with your raid, or Renew Icon Renew on individual raid members while on the move.

You can use Leap of Faith Icon Leap of Faith on players that accidentally get shot up by Upsurge Icon Upsurge.

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

When a player is damaged, Obey or Suffer Icon Obey or Suffer causes Suffering Icon Suffering on the target, preventing all healing received for 5 seconds. Tracking this debuff is essential to prevent wasted healing on targets that are afflicted by it.

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

Players affected by Dread Icon Dread will run around in fear, and due to dispels being staggered and the debuff not always being removed immediately, these targets can be good candidates for Leap of Faith Icon Leap of Faith if needed to keep them in the correct location.

Due to not being able to heal players inside Delirium Realm Icon Delirium Realm, you should focus on mechanics and DPS while inside this realm. Outside of it, try to top people up and keep on top of dispels of Shattered Psyche Icon Shattered Psyche.

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