Talent and Essence Cheatsheet
Abyssal Commander Sivara
When you have the Frost debuff and have to keep moving, we recommend continuously jumping as far as your rotation allows it. This is more efficient than moving around.
Aspect of the Turtle can be used to solo-soak Overflowing Venom / Overflowing Chill, which helps you with raid DPS as it means that only you have to place the pool it creates, letting other ranged stand still.
For more information, please refer to our Abyssal Commander Sivara strategy guide.
There are no special tips for this boss as a Marksmanship Hunter yet.

Radiance of Azshara
Like on the Blackwater Behemoth, you can send your pet to the Stormwraith beyond the traps before you are in range, allowing you to get a headstart on doing damage to it.
For more information, please refer to our Radiance of Azshara strategy guide.
You can use Aspect of the Turtle in order to not get affected by the Briny Bubbles. Simply cast it shortly before the debuff expires, while ensuring that you are not close to anyone else. You can use Born To Be Wild to do this more often.
For more information, please refer to our Lady Ashvane strategy guide.
Your focus should primarily be on dealing boss DPS on this fight, with adds being a very minor consideration for you.
For more information, please refer to our Orgozoa strategy guide.
The Queen's Court
Aspect of the Turtle can be used to solo-soak the Frenetic Charge, which saves your raid a lot of DPS by not having a lot of ranged DPS move to your location.
You can also use Feign Death to negate the charge. If you do it successfully, there will be no damage, no knockback, and it will not leave a pool behind. You have to Feign Death immediately when the boss targets you with the Frenetic Charge, and remain Feigned until it is over. Do not touch your mouse buttons while Feigned, as it is easy to break Feign on accident.
For more information, please refer to our The Queen's Court strategy guide.
Za'qul, Harbinger of Ny'alotha
Aspect of the Turtle can be used to reset stacks of Hysteria, which is particularly useful when you are about to enter Delirium.
In the Fear Phase, you can reset Hysteria by casting Turtle at ~11-12 seconds left on the debuff, and then cancelling it with 9 seconds left.
You effectively immune the debuff's refresh at the 10-second mark, and after this it will expire, resetting your stacks.
Duck and Cover can be used defensively before Manic Dread, and to stay inside Delirium longer.
For more information, please refer to our Za'qul, Harbinger of Ny'alotha strategy guide.
Hunters can pick Essence of the Focusing Iris Major and deal very good damage to the Devoted adds that spawn on both Heroic and Mythic difficulty. This is only worth it if you are not meeting the DPS check otherwise.
For more information, please refer to our Queen Azshara strategy guide.
