2. Talent Cheatsheet

The Restless Cabal Uu'nat, Harbinger of the Void

3. The Restless Cabal

3.1. Talents

3.2. Tips

During Embrace of the Void Icon Embrace of the Void, you will not be able to receive any healing. You should save Touch of Karma Icon Touch of Karma for it, if you can afford to.

Keep Transcendence Icon Transcendence up next to the Void Stone relic to be able to efficiently move back to it during Umbral Shell Icon Umbral Shell casts. This will allow you to take down the shield quickly.

Cooldown usage can be optimized with slight delays in this fight. Touch of Death Icon Touch of Death does not benefit from it, however, and you should use it on cooldown. Delays are unlikely to gain anything and will potentially lose you a cast. On the other hand, wait for 45 seconds to use Invoke Xuen, the White Tiger Icon Invoke Xuen, the White Tiger and then proceed to use it on cooldown. This should grant you maximum damage increase stacks for every cast. Use your two stacks of Storm, Earth, and Fire Icon Storm, Earth, and Fire to line up one cast of it with each Xuen timing.

4. Uu'nat, Harbinger of the Void

4.1. Talents

4.2. Tips

If your strategy involves killing several waves of minions, Hit Combo Icon Hit Combo can outshine Invoke Xuen, the White Tiger Icon Invoke Xuen, the White Tiger; however, Xuen is still the go to for boss damage.

Ring of Peace Icon Ring of Peace can be used to interrupt the Primordial Mindbender casts.

Keep Transcendence Icon Transcendence up near the middle of the room to be able to quickly reposition from abilities such as Piercing Gaze of N'Zoth Icon Piercing Gaze of N'Zoth, allowing you to dodge all of its damage.
