To make it easy to navigate the guide, we have split it into 3 pages:

2. Lore

Zul is the sixth boss encountered in Uldir.

Once the proud leader of the Zanchuli Council, highest advisors to the kings of Zandalar, Zul was praised as the greatest of prophets. Now, the dark prophet has turned on King Rastakhan and would see a true troll empire rule the world once again, even if it means submitting to the blood god: G'huun.

3. Outline

Zul is a two-phase encounter that centers around controlling waves of adds in the first phase, and managing increasing area denial in the second. Equally, the longer Phase One lasts, the more deadly Phase Two becomes. This, paradoxically, causes your raid to want use cooldowns to push sooner, yet save them to make it through the last phase.

4. TL;DR

4.1. Tanks

  • Pick up adds as they spawn, making sure to keep the Nazmani Crushers faced away from other players.
  • Pull the Nazmani Crushers at least 30 yards away from other mobs when their Energy gets high.
  • Help to crowd control any Animated Ichors to prevent them from reaching Zul, or any Nazmani Bloodhexers if they get too close to another Bloodhexer.
  • In Phase Two, make sure to face Zul away from other players, so that you are the only person taking Rupturing Blood Icon Rupturing Blood.
  • Be sure to run to the edge of the room as your Rupturing Blood Icon Rupturing Blood debuff is about to fall off, to drop Ruptured Blood Icon Ruptured Blood in a good spot.
  • Make sure you are in range of Healers for the majority of the Rupturing Blood Icon Rupturing Blood debuff, as you will require a lot of heals.

4.2. Healers

  • In Phase One, keep an eye on low Health players when Nazmani Bloodhexers are active, as they will target the lowest Health players with their Bloodshard Icon Bloodshard casts.
  • Make sure to top off low Health players before Dark Revelation Icon Dark Revelation expires.
  • In Phase Two, make sure the raid is healthy before Deathwish Icon Deathwish goes out, and to use cooldowns to counter the damage.

4.3. DPS

  • Make sure you kill Animated Ichors before they reach Zul.
  • Focus down adds before turning your attention to Zul.

4.4. Everyone

  • Run to the edge of the platform when afflicted with Dark Revelation Icon Dark Revelation.
  • If you notice a Pool of Darkness Icon Pool of Darkness spawn, run into it until the assigned soaker can take your place.
  • Crowd control the adds a much as possible, with the focus on preventing Animated Ichors from reaching Zul and Nazmani Bloodhexers from being within 20 yards of each other.
  • Classes with offensive dispels should use them on the Minion of Zul to instantly kill them.

4.5. Positioning

  • In Phase One, stack near the center of the room.
  • Avoid standing in front of the Nazmani Crushers.
  • In Phase Two, the raid should stay as close to the center of the room as possible to give more time to the players afflicted with Deathwish Icon Deathwish.
  • Stay away from the front of Zul to reduce the number of Ruptured Blood Icon Ruptured Blood that will spawn from Rupturing Blood Icon Rupturing Blood debuffs.

5. Bloodlust/Heroism/Time Warp

We advise you to use Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust/Heroism Icon Heroism/Time Warp Icon Time Warp at the start of Phase Two to help clean up any left over adds, and to kill Zul before the platform is overrun with Ruptured Blood Icon Ruptured Blood.
