Mistress Sassz'ine is a 3-phase encounter that focuses primarily on environmental mechanics. Good cleave damage is an asset for dealing with the consistent waves of adds present during the encounter. Raid damage throughout the fight is quite high, and groups with potent throughput healing will find much greater success.

Here is a preview of the LFR difficulty from the PTR:





  • Pick up Abyss Stalkers that spawn throughout the fight.


  • Prepare cooldowns for high movement/pressure moments in the fight, such as Hydra Shot Icon Hydra Shots, or when several Burden of Pain Icon Burden of Pain debuffs are active.


  • Quickly eliminate Abyss Stalkers and Razorjaw Waverunners.


  • Avoid Sarukel's Devouring Maw Icon Devouring Maw and Vellius' deadly charge.
  • Avoid standing in Concealing Murk Icon Concealing Murk, and position so that a Concealing Murk is between you and the Slicing Tornado Icon Slicing Tornados, as the pool will consume the tornado and allow you to escape to safety.
  • Carry Befouling Ink Icon Befouling Ink to Sarukel to make him go away.
  • Players with Consuming Hunger Icon Consuming Hunger should stand in Thundering Shock Icon Thundering Shock to detach the murlocs and make them vulnerable.

Bloodlust/Heroism/Time Warp

Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust usage for this encounter is extremely flexible, and can be adjusted to suit the raid's needs. Using Bloodlust at the beginning of Phase Three can be helpful for quickly finishing the fight, as this is the longest phase and raid damage is at its highest. Alternatively, it can be used on the opener for maximum damage efficiency, as everyone's cooldowns and trinkets should be available.
