1. Introduction for Restoration Druid Boss Advice in Uldir

In this section you will find information pertaining to each boss individually in Uldir. It is recommended you follow the standard talent build found in the Builds, Talents, and Glyphs section of the guide unless otherwise advised, on a per boss basis. As this is an upcoming raid, the current information is based on beta testing and theorycrafting using Warcraft Logs and will be updated over time.

Taloc M.O.T.H.E.R. Fetid Devourer Zek'voz, Herald of N'Zoth Vectis Zul, Reborn Mythrax the Unraveler G'huun

3. Taloc

3.1. Suggested Talents for Restoration Druid on Taloc

3.2. Restoration Druid Playstyle on Taloc

This boss has a very spiky damage pattern due to Cudgel of Gore Icon Cudgel of Gore and Hardened Arteries Icon Hardened Arteries. Aim to use Incarnation: Tree of Life Icon Incarnation: Tree of Life on the first Hardened Arteries cast, that will allow you to cover first Cudgel of Gore as well. If you plan to use Tranquility Icon Tranquility on Cudgel of Gore, make sure to stand further than 30 yards away from the tank that baits Cudgel of Gore to not get knocked during the cast.

You should keep an eye on players with Plasma Discharge Icon Plasma Discharge. Try to save Swiftmend Icon Swiftmend and Ironbark Icon Ironbark in case their Health gets low. In Phase Two, you can place Efflorescence Icon Efflorescence on the edge of melee group so that it will still cover them after everyone moves.

4. M.O.T.H.E.R.

Similar to Taloc, this boss has a very spiky damage pattern, dictated by players passing through Defense Grid Icon Defense Grid, and you should aim to burst when multiple people move through using Flourish Icon Flourish, Incarnation: Tree of Life Icon Incarnation: Tree of Life, and Tranquility Icon Tranquility. The damage pattern is very beneficial to Restoration Druids with a lot of it coming from a players crossing the wall at different times. More importantly, your entire raid group will rotate through rooms every 2 minutes, which is perfect for Inner Peace Icon Inner Peace.

You can use Mighty Bash Icon Mighty Bash to stun Remnants of Corruption to interrupt their Clinging Corruption Icon Clinging Corruption casts.

5. Fetid Devourer

5.1. Suggested Talents for Restoration Druid on Fetid Devourer

5.2. Restoration Druid Playstyle on Fetid Devourer

In Mythic, you will look into putting Rejuvenation Icon Rejuvenation on Malodorous Miasma Icon Malodorous Miasma / Putrid Paroxysm Icon Putrid Paroxysm targets. Save Incarnation: Tree of Life Icon Incarnation: Tree of Life and Tranquility Icon Tranquility until boss reaches 50% to heal through Shockwave Stomp Icon Shockwave Stomp.

With Germination Icon Germination you can perform a tank healing role on this encounter. Make sure you have Lifebloom Icon Lifebloom and both Rejuvenation Icon Rejuvenations rolling on the main tank. Off-tank will only get hit every 6 seconds so there is no immediate need to heal him up to full, however it will become increasingly more difficult when Fetid Devourer reaches 50% Health.

In Heroic Malodorous Miasma Icon Malodorous Miasma / Putrid Paroxysm Icon Putrid Paroxysm do not spread, making positioning requirements much more relaxed. It is still recommended to focus on single target healing, due to the boss's damage profile.

You can go Moonkin Form Icon Moonkin Form right before Shockwave Stomp Icon Shockwave Stomp casts, turn your back towards the boss and press Wild Charge Icon Wild Charge when it hits to negate the knockback. You are still able to cast Regrowth Icon Regrowth while in Moonkin Form, but any other healing spell will put you out.

6. Zek'voz, Herald of N'Zoth

6.1. Suggested Talents for Restoration Druid on Zek'voz, Herald of N'Zoth

6.2. Restoration Druid Playstyle on Zek'voz, Herald of N'Zoth

Most of the incoming, unavoidable damage in this fight will come from Surging Darkness Icon Surging Darkness, which hits the raid over a prolonged period of time and requires you to heal while moving. You can use Flourish Icon Flourish on Tranquility Icon Tranquility in order to get the best out of both cooldowns on this part of the fight. Eye Beam Icon Eye Beam and Roiling Deceit Icon Roiling Deceit (which, if not handled correctly, will cause a lot of raid damage through Shadow Nova Icon Shadow Nova) deal substantial single target damage, and you should put Rejuvenation Icon Rejuvenation on every single player affected by those and follow up with Swiftmend Icon Swiftmend or Regrowth Icon Regrowth if needed.

On Mythic difficulty Surging Darkness Icon Surging Darkness will be cast every 90 seconds, which lines up perfectly with Flourish Icon Flourish. You will also be able to pair every second one with Incarnation: Tree of Life Icon Incarnation: Tree of Life. Qiraji Warriors will spawn every 2 minutes and will most certainly hit a few raid members, making that a good time to use Tranquility Icon Tranquility.

Qiraji Warrior adds can be controlled by Ursol's Vortex Icon Ursol's Vortex and Typhoon Icon Typhoon. Alternatively, you can use Mighty Bash Icon Mighty Bash to stun Nerubian Voidweavers.

7. Vectis

7.1. Suggested Talents for Restoration Druid on Vectis

7.2. Restoration Druid Playstyle on Vectis

This fight is all about controlling stacks of Lingering Infection Icon Lingering Infection. As time goes by, these will grow and make casts of Contagion Icon Contagion more deadly, especially as it is likely the raid will be affected by Immunosuppression Icon Immunosuppression at the same time.

In Heroic, Lingering Infection Icon Lingering Infection does not have the extra effects that cause the encounter to snowball out of control after players hit 6 stacks and above, thus allowing for a more relaxed positioning and control of the stacks.

For Mythic, make sure you always use Tranquility Icon Tranquility on the same Contagion Icon Contagion cast. There are 3 per each phase and they are exactly 2 minutes apart. You can choose to use Incarnation: Tree of Life Icon Incarnation: Tree of Life as an extra cooldown or pick Cultivation Icon Cultivation to help with healing Omega Vector Icon Omega Vector. Make sure you have Rejuvenation Icon Rejuvenation on each Omega Vector target before Contagion casts, then cast Regrowth Icon Regrowth and Swiftmend Icon Swiftmend as soon as Contagion hits.

8. Zul, Reborn

8.1. Suggested Talents for Restoration Druid on Zul, Reborn

8.2. Restoration Druid Playstyle on Zul, Reborn

Other than Dark Revelation Icon Dark Revelation bursts, damage starts low and ramps up throughout this encounter. Be aware that damage will heavily ramp up post 40% boss health, due to Locus of Corruption Icon Locus of Corruption applying a lot of Corrupted Blood Icon Corrupted Blood stacks to everyone in the raid. Keep in mind that Absorbed in Darkness Icon Absorbed in Darkness soakers, and players with Unleashed Shadow Icon Unleashed Shadow, will require heavy single target healing as well throughout all the fight. You can use Tiger Dash Icon Tiger Dash to quickly move into Pool of Darkness Icon Pool of Darkness.

In Heroic you only need to deal with Corrupted Blood Icon Corrupted Blood after the boss hits 40% health and there is only one Dark Revelation Icon Dark Revelation to deal with every minute, instead of the two in Mythic. This vastly reduces the healing requirements of the encounter and allows you to save most of your Mana for the end of the encounter.

9. Mythrax the Unraveler

9.1. Suggested Talents for Restoration Druid on Mythrax the Unraveler

9.2. Restoration Druid Playstyle on Mythrax the Unraveler

Players will have their maximum health reduced by Annihilation Icon Annihilation, which gives you less time to heal before deaths occur. That being said, there will be spikes of raid damage happening regularly, from Imminent Ruin Icon Imminent Ruin and Crashing Oblivion Icon Crashing Oblivion, that you can use your cooldowns on. Typhoon Icon Typhoon can be used to knock people out of mind control. Feral Affinity Icon Feral Affinity and Wild Charge Icon Wild Charge make it easier to avoid extra Annihilation stacks.

10. G'huun

10.1. Suggested Talents for Restoration Druid on G'huun

10.2. Restoration Druid Playstyle on G'huun

Most of the damage taken in this fight comes from Reorigination Blast Icon Reorigination Blast, Putrid Blood Icon Putrid Blood, and Explosive Corruption Icon Explosive Corruption. While the healing gets much more intense towards the end, when you can no longer remove Putrid Blood stacks with Blood Feast Icon Blood Feast, this is a very long, intense fight that will strain your Mana to the limit. You should aim to use Tranquility Icon Tranquility, Incarnation: Tree of Life Icon Incarnation: Tree of Life and Flourish Icon Flourish as Mana saving tools in Phase One and then make sure they are ready for the last phase. Tiger Dash Icon Tiger Dash is a good choice for quickly moving out of the group or carrying orbs.
