Tips

Almost all the magical damage on this encounter can be mitigated by both Feint Icon Feint and Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows, so use them freely. There is no major mechanic you want to save these abilities for.

Make sure to have at least some burst damage for the Magma Mystic's Molten Barrier Icon Molten Barrier.

For more information, please refer to our Assault of the Zaqali guide.

Rashok, the Elder

10.1.

Talents/Build

10.2.

Tips

Use Feint Icon Feint when soaking Charged Smash Icon Charged Smash.

Use Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows to cleanse the Overcharged Icon Overcharged DoT debuff.

Timing Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows can prevent the application of the Overcharged Icon Overcharged debuff entirely. You will need to use it less than a second before the debuff is applied, which also allows you to mitigate all damage from Charged Smash Icon Charged Smash.

For more information, please refer to our Rashok the Elder guide.

11.

The Vigilant Steward, Zskarn

11.1.

Talents/Build

If your raid consistently stacks the golems close to the boss, you should play the cleave build on this fight, else go for single-target.

11.2.

Tips

If your guild plans on simply crowd-controlling the Animate Golems, you can use Blind Icon Blind to do so. Remember that it has a higher cooldown than duration.

Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows is a very good defensive tool on this fight, and you can use it for either more uptime on mechanics such as Blast Wave Icon Blast Wave or defensively if you get caught by Tactical Destruction Icon Tactical Destruction or Dragonfire Traps Icon Dragonfire Traps.

Grappling Hook Icon Grappling Hook is useful to counteract the knockback from Blast Wave Icon Blast Wave.

Echo of Neltharion

13.1.

Talents/Build

We recommend playing the cleave build on this boss. Be careful with killing your own raid members with Blade Flurry.

13.2.

Tips

Feint Icon Feint is incredibly powerful on this encounter, as there are regular high-damage AoE hits like Echoing Fissure Icon Echoing Fissure or Umbral Annihilation Icon Umbral Annihilation.

Save your Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows for Phase 2 or Phase 3. You do not have to be inside a portal in Phase 3 during Ebon Destruction Icon Ebon Destruction with Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows active, and it also removes all stacks of Ebon Destruction Icon Ebon Destruction. You will be getting more adds, however.

Evasion Icon Evasion can be used to avoid the debuff from Shatter Icon Shatter. This can be very helpful in Phase 2 of the encounter. Make sure to face the boss when using Evasion, as he is the source of the DoT.

For more information, please refer to our Neltharion guide.

14.

Scalecommander Sarkareth

14.1.

Talents/Build

Only phase 1 is single-target, so make sure to play the cleave build on this boss.
