Talent and Essence Cheatsheet


Abyssal Commander Sivara

We advise you to use the following essences against Abyssal Commander Sivara.



Use Tiger Dash Icon Tiger Dash and any other mobility to help soak Overflow Icon Overflow. Make sure you move out of the pools dropped by Overflow as soon as possible to not get extra stacks.

You should alternate usage of Incarnation: Tree of Life Icon Incarnation: Tree of Life and Flourish Icon Flourish with Tranquility Icon Tranquility for Overwhelming Barrage Icon Overwhelming Barrage and Unstable Mixture Icon Unstable Mixture explosions that follow. Check for Crushing Reverberation Icon Crushing Reverberation timer to not get knocked back during Tranquility cast.

For more information, please refer to our Abyssal Commander Sivara strategy guide.


Blackwater Behemoth

We advise you to use the following essences against Blackwater Behemoth.



Make sure you track Bioluminescence Icon Bioluminescence on your raid frames. Only people with this debuff will be able to receive healing.

You can use Wild Charge Icon Wild Charge in Aquatic Form Icon Aquatic Form for an underwater sprint, which can be useful during the intermission to get to the boss more quickly, or during Shock Pulse Icon Shock Pulse to move away from the boss.

Efflorescence Icon Efflorescence will be less useful than it usually is due to fight mechanics. It will still heal people swimming slightly above it, but not too far.

For more information, please refer to our Blackwater Behemoth strategy guide.


Radiance of Azshara

We advise you to use the following essences against Radiance of Azshara.



Pay attention to the position of players with Arcane Bomb Icon Arcane Bomb before you dispel them.

Do not cast Wild Growth Icon Wild Growth on the boss. The hit box is too large and it will try to bounce off the center of it, healing nobody.

Use your cooldowns for Unshackled Power Icon Unshackled Power casts.

You can use Bear Form Icon Bear Form Wild Charge Icon Wild Charge to get back to the add during intermissions after knockback.

Use Typhoon Icon Typhoon and Ursol's Vortex Icon Ursol's Vortex to help interrupt the Stormling adds as they cast.

For more information, please refer to our Radiance of Azshara strategy guide.


Lady Ashvane

We advise you to use the following essences against Lady Ashvane.



Rippling Wave Icon Rippling Wave will cause periodic bursts of damage on the raid after people start soaking the orbs. Make sure you track the Waterlogged Icon Waterlogged debuff and its stacks. Players with this debuff will be at higher risk of dying to raid damage. You should spread your healing cooldowns and time them after a few orbs were already soaked.

In general, the first wave in any shield phase would be slightly easier, due to having less orbs. If you are aiming to have the most impact with your cooldowns, try to time them for the waves, as Ashvane's shield has less absorb on it.

For more information, please refer to our Lady Ashvane strategy guide.



We advise you to use the following essences against Orgozoa.



Tanks will take massive damage in this fight, and are required to be topped up in order to soak Amniotic Splatter Icon Amniotic Splatter. Make sure you keep Lifebloom Icon Lifebloom on them and use the Rampant Growth Icon Rampant Growth Azerite trait.

Pace your Mana to have more of it left towards the end of the fight, as the damage will increase with more and more players getting affected by Incubation Fluid Icon Incubation Fluid.

For Mythic difficulty, you should pre-pot with Potion of Unbridled Fury Icon Potion of Unbridled Fury and DPS for the first minute at the very least. Make sure you keep Efflorescence Icon Efflorescence down at all times, keep Sunfire Icon Sunfire on Zoatroids whenever possible. Your goal in the first phase should be to be to have all your cooldowns rolling at some point between 3:00 and 4:15 into the fight, as the damage during this portion will be significantly higher. Use Tranquility Icon Tranquility at any point after the dance and before or during the Arcing Current Icon Arcing Current cast. Use Potion of Replenishment Icon Potion of Replenishment as you come down for the second phase. Even if you were at 0 Mana going into it, you should get enough from the potion to last you until Orgozoa dies.

For more information, please refer to our Orgozoa strategy guide.


The Queen's Court

We advise you to use the following essences against The Queen's Court.



Zealous Eruption Icon Zealous Eruption deals a huge amount of damage to anyone outside the bubble area around Silivaz, most often just the tank who is on the other boss.

Time your burst healing around the first or second Potent Spark Icon Potent Spark exploding.

Try to save Incarnation: Tree of Life Icon Incarnation: Tree of Life for Deferred Sentence Icon Deferred Sentence, unless it means delaying your cast by a few minutes.

Obey or Suffer Icon Obey or Suffer causes Suffering Icon Suffering whenever a player is damaged, making that player healing immune for 5 seconds. Make sure to track it on your raid frames.

With the Inner Peace Icon Inner Peace talent and Strive for Perfection Icon Strive for Perfection Essence, you can use Tranquility Icon Tranquility on every spark wave, assuming you start with the first spark on the first wave. Your cooldown, depending on the neck level, will be slightly longer than 1:30, while sparks spawn every 1:30.

For more information, please refer to our The Queen's Court strategy guide.


Za'qul, Harbinger of Ny'alotha

We advise you to use the following essences against Za'qul, Harbinger of Ny'alotha.



Dread Icon Dread will be causing massive damage to the raid whenever it is dispelled. Make sure you land a Wild Growth Icon Wild Growth and spot heal low Health players before the second one is dispelled.

Players inside the Delirium Realm Icon Delirium Realm cannot be healed. Focus on keeping people in the other realm healthy instead, and on dispelling Shattered Psyche Icon Shattered Psyche from whoever dies inside the Delirium realm.

Meanwhile, players inside the Fear Realm Icon Fear Realm will take increasingly high damage from stacking Hysteria Icon Hysteria debuffs, requiring high healing towards the end of the phase. Make sure you have all your healing cooldowns ready for this part of the fight.

On Mythic difficulty, raids will generally remove all Dread Icon Dreads at the same time for a very big burst of damage, generally for more than full Health of most players before damage reductions. You should start ramping early and make sure nobody is below maximum Health. Save Barkskin Icon Barkskin only for this mechanic.

For more information, please refer to our Za'qul, Harbinger of Ny'alotha strategy guide.


Queen Azshara

We advise you to use the following essences against Queen Azshara.



The healing requirements on this fight are pretty low, while the damage checks can be tough to beat. As such, you should use Concentrated Flame Icon Concentrated Flame Major essence to help with those. Save and use both charges on Overzealous Hulk in Phase 1. Use it on cooldown in other phases, unless you have to nuke one of the Loyal Myrmidons fast.

Only dispel the Arcane Burst when they do not have anyone else in their line of sight. Consider saving Barkskin Icon Barkskin if you have to do it yourself and make sure you are full Health before doing so.

Players under the effect of Beckon Icon Beckon will be unable to use personals or line of sight any other mechanic that might kill them. You should put at least Rejuvenation Icon Rejuvenation on them and spot heal with Regrowth Icon Regrowth as soon as they take any damage. Combos of Charged Spear Icon Charged Spear breaking Crystalline Shield Icon Crystalline Shield and Arcane Burst getting dispelled can often kill them in a fraction of a second.

In the final phase, Void Touched Icon Void Touched will cause tanks to be increasingly hard to heal. Use your cooldowns on the Console's Controlled Burst Icon Controlled Burst uses.

For more information, please refer to our Queen Azshara strategy guide.
