Make sure to use defensive cooldowns during Umbral Shell Icon Umbral Shell, as healing received is reduced by 100%.

If you are soaking a Void Crash Icon Void Crash, use Spell Reflection Icon Spell Reflection to reduce the damage you take from it.

A combination of Heroic Leap Icon Heroic Leap and Intercept Icon Intercept can help make the tank swap much more quick and avoid unnecessary issues.

The fear from Unknowable Terror Icon Unknowable Terror is preventable with Berserker Rage Icon Berserker Rage. You will still take a large amount of Shadow damage regardless, so only use Berserker Rage on the fear if absolutely necessary.
