You can easily import the talent tree below into the game with the following string:


Kazzara, the Hellforged

Recommended Talents:



  • Despite being a dragon, this boss does not have a tail swipe mechanic meaning that it is safe to stand behind.
  • This boss deals increased damage and has extra mechanics as it loses health, you will want to manage your mana and cooldowns well to ensure that you have enough to cover the end of the fight when it gets more intense.

The Amalgamation Chamber

Recommended Talents:



  • In phase 1, the bosses will be split apart. During this time, you will gain a stacking debuff, either Corrupting Shadow Icon Corrupting Shadow or Blazing Heat. If your stacks ever get too high, you can run to the other boss to let your stacks reset and fall off.
  • In phase 2, the boss will deal increasing damage until death; you will need to keep players alive as long as possible during this phase while also rotating through healing cooldowns.

The Forgotten Experiments

Recommended Talents:



  • You will need to dispel players with Unstable Essence Icon Unstable Essence when Thadrion is active. However, it will spread to another player with each dispel, so you will want to only dispel when a player reaches high stacks. You will also want to avoid dispelling if the player is in the raid, as it will leave a giant circle under them, likely killing any player it touches.
  • Rionthus will spawn orbs around the room that will grant the boss a massive shield if they are able to reach him. Help soak these orbs when you notice them close to you.
  • When Rionthus is casting Deep Breath Icon Deep Breath, you will want to look in the air and stay as far away from him as possible. He will pick 1/3rd of the room to fly down and kill anyone in that area. Always be safe and move as far as possible to one side.

For more information, please refer to our Forgotten Experiments guide.


Rashok, the Elder

Recommended Talents:



  • Whenever the boss is brought to the center of the room, he will deal massive damage. Try to plan to have healing cooldowns active each time he is brought to the middle.
  • If you are targetted by Searing Slam Icon Searing Slam, it is important that you do not drop the circle on another Lava Vortex Icon Lava Vortex or it will likely wipe the raid.

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


Assault of the Zaqali

Recommended Talents:



  • This encounter has many kickable spells. While not required, you may want to consider talenting into Quell Icon Quell to help interrupt.
  • Make sure that you are dispelling players who have the Magma Flow debuff on them.
  • This fight contains a high amount of extra mobs; try to Fire Breath Icon Fire Breath when possible help out, as Evoker has very great AoE damage without much effort.
  • Try to have healing cooldowns such as Rewind Icon Rewind and Dream Flight Icon Dream Flight available at the end of the fight to use during Ignara's Fury Icon Ignara's Fury.

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


The Vigilant Steward, Zskarn

Recommended Talents:



  • Try to position so that the Blast Wave Icon Blast Wave mechanic does not push you into any fire existing within the room. You can't be pushed off the edge, so use that to your advantage when possible.


Recommended Talents:



  • Help soak the Magma Puddle Icon Magma Puddle circles to shrink them and save space in the room.
  • This boss deals increased damage as it loses health; you will want to manage your mana and cooldowns well to ensure that you have enough to cover the end of the fight when it gets more intense.
  • If Lava Ejection Icon Lava Ejection is not soaked, it will wipe the raid. You will need to help your allies soak this, but soaking it leaves a debuff, increasing your damage when soaking. Do not soak again until this debuff falls off.
  • Avoid standing in front of the boss due to Blazing Breath Icon Blazing Breath. This will kill you if you are hit by it.

For more information, please refer to our Magmorax guide.


Echo of Neltharion

Recommended Talents:



  • This boss will spawn walls that will cause you to be LoS and unable to reach your allies or the boss. It is extremely important that you follow the raid and the boss, and do not get stuck on another side of the boss.
  • Rushing Darkness Icon Rushing Darkness can be used to break the walls spawned by the boss but you will want to avoid standing between the players targetted by this and the boss as it will deal damage to you.
  • If you are ever targetted by Corruption Icon Corruption, it is extremely important that you help to kill the Voice from Beyond adds.
  • In the last phase, you will need to stand in Sundered Reality Icon Sundered Reality to avoid dying to Ebon Destruction Icon Ebon Destruction. Failure to do so will kill you.

Recommended Talents:



  • Rewind Icon Rewind will NOT heal back damage dealt from Oppressing Howl Icon Oppressing Howl.
