1. Introduction for Vengeance Demon Hunter Boss Advice in Uldir

In this section you will find information pertaining to each boss individually in the Uldir raid.

This advice is extremely preliminary in nature — this guide will be updated regularly over the next few weeks as bosses are experienced in their live state.

1.1. Talent Cheatsheet

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

2. Taloc

There are no tank swaps for this fight. It is easily solo tankable.

When you are targeted by Cudgel of Gore Icon Cudgel of Gore, use Infernal Strike Icon Infernal Strike to get leap into the middle of a large pool of blood. Attempt to keep hit blood that is relevant to your raids location. Simply consuming as much as possible is not always the best idea. Once he casts Cudgel of Gore, use Infernal Strike to leap back into the center to avoid as much damage as possible.

For the adds in Phase Two, kite them as close to the bosses puddle as possible, only moving as a new pool is spawned.

3. M.O.T.H.E.R.

There are not tank swaps for this fight. One tank is on MOTHER, and one tank is in the next room dealing with adds.

If you are the MOTHER tank, she will channel Sanitizing Strike Icon Sanitizing Strike in your direction. You do not have to soak this, as once she starts the channel you can move out of it. She will often cast Sanitizing Strike during Wind Tunnel Icon Wind Tunnel. When this happens, you can move her along the wall, facing away from the raid while running against the wind, and right before she casts Sanitizing Strike, leap towards where you want the strikes to go, so that she casts it there and use the wind to help you move away from the cast.

4. Fetid Devourer

There are no tank swaps for this fight. One tank has the boss the entire time, and the other soaks the Terrible Thrash Icon Terrible Thrash. Note that the off tank needs to be the closest person to the main tank, otherwise a non-tank player will most likely die.

You can play either role, whether it is Main Tank or the Terrible Thrash Icon Terrible Thrash tank. If you are main tanking, take Void Reaver Icon Void Reaver unless you need an extra cooldown/filler, in which you take Soul Barrier Icon Soul Barrier. If off-tanking, take Soul Barrier Icon Soul Barrier. Feed the Demon Icon Feed the Demon is the best for both roles, utilizing the defensive rotation of overcapping on souls and Pain with Shear Icon Shear. If you are off-tanking, then spawn as many souls as you can between thrashes, so that you can Spirit Bomb right after a Terrible Thrash goes out. Rotate between Demon Spikes Icon Demon Spikes, Fiery Brand Icon Fiery Brand, Soul Barrier, and externals.

5. Zek'voz, Herald of N'Zoth

The tank swap for this fight is when the boss casts his "combo". He will cast Void Lash Icon Void Lash into Shatter Icon Shatter into another Void Lash. It is advised to tank swap after the Shatter cast. Note that Void Lash is a cone, so have the tanks stand in a V pattern, facing away from the raid. This ensures that neither tank gets hit by the others mechanic, while not having to move when the taunt swap is performed.

A well-placed Sigil of Chains Icon Sigil of Chains can grip most of the Silithid Warriors into a single group for AoE control. Note that the Nerubian Voidweavers will be immune to this on Heroic and Mythic difficulties, thanks to Shadowbind Icon Shadowbind.

6. Vectis

The tanks will perform a swap at 2 stacks. Where you go to drop the debuff is dependent on your raid strategy.

There are no specific recommendations for this boss.

7. Zul, Reborn

In Phase One, there is no tank swap. One tank will take the Crusher and the other will grab aggro on the Crawgs and Bloodhexer.

In Phase Two, tank swaps will be dependent on your composition. If you have Paladins, they can use a Blessing of Protection Icon Blessing of Protection on you to drop your stacks. If this is available you should survive until 4-5 stacks, leap out and drop the stacks. Be sure to keep the pools as close together as possible, even inside of each other if your Paladin is fast enough.

In the event that you do not have a Paladin or are short on Blessing of Protection Icon Blessing of Protection, then you should plan to swap at 3 stacks, using cooldowns and externals to survive until the stacks drop. Note that the DoT is a bleed, so Demon Spikes Icon Demon Spikes, Metamorphosis Icon Metamorphosis, and Fiery Brand Icon Fiery Brand do nothing for it. They only help while you are actively tanking the boss.

8. Mythrax the Unraveler

In Phase One, tanks will perform a tank swap when Essence Shear Icon Essence Shear is cast. Note that this is a cone, so the off-tank should not be standing in front of the boss.

In Phase Two, tanks will each grab a large add, and drag him to the small adds. Keep them 40 yards apart, otherwise they buff each other.

Sigil of Chains Icon Sigil of Chains can pull players from an Oblivion Sphere Icon Oblivion Sphere.

9. G'huun

In Phase One, there are no tank swaps. As long as the Dark Young and Blightspreader Tendril (on Heroic) are tanked. Keep the Dark Young on adds at all times, so that they are hit by Dark Bargain Icon Dark Bargain. Do not get 2 stacks of Dark Bargain.

In Phase Two, designate one tank as the Explosive Corruption Icon Explosive Corruption runner, and the other tank as the add tank. Vengeance is better as the runner due to Infernal Strike Icon Infernal Strike. How this works is the runner takes the boss first to 6 stacks, where he will cast the first Corruption. Once he casts, you tank swap. After that, for the rest of the fight, you swap at 4 stacks, as the Corruption is placed on every 8th stack. When Blood Feast Icon Blood Feast occurs, you will drop Corruption, then leap back in to remove the DoT. Once this happens, an add is spawned the add tank picks it up and will tank the add the rest of the phase.

Phase Three is simply swapping at 3-4 stacks until he dies. Note that the DoT is not removable anymore, meaning you take more damage as the fight goes on, so save cooldowns until you have generated some stacks.

There are no other specific recommendations for this boss.
