Taloc Guide for Uldir

General Information

Welcome to our World of Warcraft encounter guide for Taloc in Uldir. We will teach you everything you need to know to defeat the boss in every difficulty.

On this particular page, we will give you a short overview of the fight as well as a list of things to watch out for (include LFR tips when applicable).

The other pages of our Taloc guide can be accessed from the table of contents on the right.

1. Contents

To make it easy to navigate the guide, we have split it into 2 pages:

2. Lore

Taloc is the first boss encountered in Uldir.

The titan keepers enacted countless systems to detect and contain any breach from the facility. Their most powerful construct, Taloc, kept watch for any signs of corruption in the region and ruthlessly excised any that he found. But as thousands of years passed, its internal defenses began to decay, making it vulnerable to corruption.

3. Outline

Taloc is a three-phase encounter in which the raid will need to manage dropping area denial effects in a clean and organized fashion. The fight is also punctuated by an elevator segment, in which the encounter platform descends through a series of laser beams which must be dodged. Organization and communication are integral to surviving this encounter.

4. TL;DR

4.1. Tanks

  • At 100 Energy, the active tank must be sure to aim Cudgel of Gore Icon Cudgel of Gore at large patches of Blood Storm Icon Blood Storm to soak them up.
  • Once the Cudgel of Gore Icon Cudgel of Gore cast is complete, use any movement speed abilities available to run from the area.
  • When the boss reaches 35%, be sure to tank the Coalesced Bloods that begin to spawn.
  • When off tanking, run over Volatile Droplets to prevent them from hitting your raid.

4.2. Healers

4.3. DPS

  • When Taloc reaches 35% Health, he will take 99% reduced damage and begin the Transition Phase. This lasts about 90 seconds, so plan cooldowns accordingly.

4.4. Everyone

4.5. Positioning

  • Assign a spot in the room to drop Blood Storm Icon Blood Storm and have the raid spread loosely near that area.
  • Have Taloc tanked in the center of the room.
  • When Taloc begins casting Cudgel of Gore Icon Cudgel of Gore, have the active tank run to the Blood Storm Icon Blood Storm pile, while the raid runs away from the active tank.
  • During the Transition Phase, have the ranged positioned near the edge of the platform in order to call/mark safe spots for the melee and tanks.
  • At the bottom of the elevator have the raid loosely spread, and drop Blood Storm near the edges of the room, slowly shifting the raid clockwise or counterclockwise.

5. Bloodlust/Heroism/Time Warp

We advise you to use Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust/Heroism Icon Heroism/Time Warp Icon Time Warp when the elevator reaches the bottom of the shaft in the Transition Phase. This will allow the DPS to clear out any remaining adds from the previous phase, and will give the healers a nice buffer to ease the somewhat chaotic transition.
