The other pages of our M.O.T.H.E.R. guide can be accessed from the table of contents on the right.



To make it easy to navigate the guide, we have split it into 3 pages:



MOTHER is the second boss encountered in Uldir.

Uldir's titanic watcher was gifted with tenacity and an insatiable desire to discover a "solution" to the Old Gods. Her protocols have remained fully intact, even though many other systems in her facility have collapsed. WARNING: M.O.T.H.E.R. will not accept aid from contaminated subjects.



MOTHER is a single phase encounter that has your raid move through three rooms, spawning adds and taking raid damage as you move. The adds that spawn as well as the damage taken is triggered by players moving into a new room. As such, the crux of the fight rests in moving between rooms in a clean and organized fashion.





  • Dodge Sanitizing Strike Icon Sanitizing Strike by side-stepping whenever it is cast.
  • Round up and tank the Remnants of Corruption when you are not tanking MOTHER.


  • Have cooldowns ready for when your raiders pass through the Defense Grid Icon Defense Grid.
  • Keep an eye on the Remnant of Corruption and be ready to react if they manage to get a cast of Clinging Corruption Icon Clinging Corruption off.


  • Focus down the Remnants of Corruption as you pass through the Defense Grid Icon Defense Grid.


  • Crowd control and interrupt the Remnants of Corruption to prevent their casts.
  • Move across the Defense Grid Icon Defense Grid in small groups, allowing your DPS to handle the adds, and your healers to top off the raid.
  • Do not stand in front of MOTHER so you can avoid Sanitizing Strike Icon Sanitizing Strike.
  • Run against Wind Tunnel Icon Wind Tunnel.
  • Dodge Uldir Defensive Beam Icon Uldir Defensive Beam by moving into the safe zones.


  • Stand near the center of the room your group is in length-wise, to more easily react to Wind Tunnel Icon Wind Tunnel and Uldir Defensive Beam Icon Uldir Defensive Beam.
  • Defense Grid Icon Defense Grid causes line of sight, however AoE spells can affect targets on the other side. It is wise to position as close to the Defense Grid as possible to allow heals such as Essence Font Icon Essence Font or Wild Growth Icon Wild Growth to bounce across. Equally, reticle-targeted spells like Ring of Peace Icon Ring of Peace Healing Rain Icon Healing Rain, or Blizzard Icon Blizzard can be placed across the barrier.

Bloodlust/Heroism/Time Warp

We advise you to use Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust/Heroism Icon Heroism/Time Warp Icon Time Warp in the third room. The boss will take an additional 100% damage during this phase, dramatically increasing the Heroism/Bloodlust value.
