General Information

On this page, we list all the abilities from the Sisters of the Moon encounter in Tomb of Sargeras. The idea is to give you a solid understanding of the encounter before you read the strategy.

If you are already familiar with the encounter, then you can skip to the strategy and tactics page or access any other page of the guide by using the table of contents on the right.

1. Overview

The Sisters of the Moon comprise a three phase encounter that is almost exclusively single target, with a different sister active and damageable in each phase. Meanwhile, the other two sisters will be untargetable but present, attacking the raid with their spells. This encounter features a wide variety of abilities, with many of them only occurring during specific phases. While this encounter is complex in nature, it can be tackled with the appropriate knowledge and positioning detailed within this guide.

The Sisters of the Moon share a health pool.

Players standing on the light side of the moon will gain stacks of Lunar Suffusion Icon Lunar Suffusion, while players on the dark side of the moon will acquire stacks of Umbra Suffusion Icon Umbra Suffusion. Switching sides of the moon triggers Astral Purge Icon Astral Purge and clears all current stacks of suffusion.
