3.1.

Tips

  • Leverage your Transcendence Icon Transcendence in order to either quickly escape from the boss's line of sight, or to return to the boss's location after breaking line of sight.
  • Pay attention to the amount of stacks of Exsanguinated Icon Exsanguinated on your raiders. Do not bother wasting mana by trying to heal these people unless they are in danger of dying. Rather, wait until their stacks start to fall off before investing the mana to heal them.
  • It is recommended that you take Tiger's Lust Icon Tiger's Lust on this fight, not only to help your slower raid members, but also the extra distance that Chi Torpedo Icon Chi Torpedo will cause you to move can actually be harmful on a fight with so many positional requirements.
  • Mythic: In order to see the sonar disks on Mythic difficulty, you will need a stack of Bloodlight Icon Bloodlight from the Blood Lantern. While this debuff will allow you to see the sonar disks, it also applies a dot that stacks, so be sure to keep your stacks low.

For more information, please refer to our Shriekwing guide.

4.

Huntsman Altimor

We advise you to use the following talents against Huntsman Altimor.

We advise you to use the following Legendary against Huntsman Altimor: Ancient Teachings of the Monastery Icon Ancient Teachings of the Monastery.

4.1.

Tips

  • Be sure to focus the Tank who is about to be hit by Rip Soul Icon Rip Soul. If the Tank is at full health after this ability hits, the add it spawns will instantly despawn, so feel free to make use of Life Cocoon Icon Life Cocoon.
  • If Rip Soul Icon Rip Soul does spawn an add, make sure to focus healing into it in order to kill it.
  • Use Paralysis Icon Paralysis on the Shades of Bargast when they spawn. Keeping them crown controlled will apply a stacking debuff that increases the damage they take.
  • Mythic: After Bargast is killed, Sinseeker Icon Sinseeker will cause players hit by it to spawn a Rip Soul Icon Rip Soul add that needs to be healed up.

For more information, please refer to our Huntsman Altimor guide.

Sun King's Salvation

We advise you to use the following talents against Sun King's Salvation.

We advise you to use the following Legendary against Sun King's Salvation: Invoker's Delight Icon Invoker's Delight.

5.1.

Tips

  • Make sure that you are the one to collect the orbs dropped by the Soul Infusers. These will apply a stack of Infuser's Boon Icon Infuser's Boon which will increase your healing by 50% for 14 seconds. Make sure to refresh this buff before it falls off. Mistweaver Monks are ideal for this, because of our excellent single target throughput.
  • Make sure to heal the essence fonts that are dropped by the Vile Occultists, as they will heal Kael'thas for 1% of his Health.

For more information, please refer to our Sun King's Salvation guide.

7.1.

Tips

  • Make sure you are tracking Gluttonous Miasma Icon Gluttonous Miasma on your raid frames as it prevents all healing done to the target. Absorbs still work, however, so be sure to use your Life Cocoon Icon Life Cocoon on anyone who might die.
  • Make sure to top the raid off as much as possible before Expunge Icon Expunge is cast, as it will reduce the radius of the circles it applies to your raiders.
  • If you are caught out of position during the Consume Icon Consume cast, use Chi Torpedo Icon Chi Torpedo to quickly escape the channel.

For more information, please refer to our Hungering Destroyer guide.

  • Place Transcendence Icon Transcendence before the Danse Macabre Icon Danse Macabre in order to return quickly to the bosses after the dance is complete.

Tips

  • Each time Sludgefist breaks a pillar, the raid will gain a stack of Crumbling Foundation Icon Crumbling Foundation, so be sure to keep your Mana bar healthy for the last 20% of the fight.

For more information, please refer to our Sludgefist guide.

We advise you to use the following Legendary against Stone Legion Generals: Ancient Teachings of the Monastery Icon Ancient Teachings of the Monastery.

11.1.

Tips

  • After dispelling Heart Rend Icon Heart Rend be sure funnel healing into that target for the next 6 seconds. It can be wise to precast Enveloping Mist Icon Enveloping Mist before instantly dispelling, as this will leave them in a prime position to receive follow up healing.
  • Make sure your Transcendence Icon Transcendence is placed just in case Prince Renathal's Shattering Blast Icon Shattering Blast knocks you off the platform, you can swap back to safety.
