    Blade Lord Tayak 10H

    What's the difference in strategy between Normal and Heroic? One of our raids is currently got stuck on this.
    Any tips will be useful.

    1) Run away from the boss after Blade Tempest.
    2) ???
    3) Profit.

    That sums it up quite nicely.

    It's just about problems with heal.
    Comp:
    Tanks: Blood DK, Feral Druid
    Healers: Holy Pal, Monk and Resto Shammy
    DPS: Afflic Warlock, Shadow Priest, BM Hunter and 2 mages (1 frost 1 fire)
    Any raid saves? (Which heal should give when etc.)

    The problem is how to deal up with Wind's step and when Unseen Strike Occurs.

    Asking those who have killed it already. Would you advise us to do this boss on heroic before attempting Garajal? Or after Garajal? I imagine it is easier than Will?

    We hit the Berserk on Blade Lord several times today while killing Garajal in about 5:20min. So if you don't have the DPS for Garajal, don't even bother with Blade Lord.
    Seeing that Garajal is pretty much nothing but a gear check I'd advise you to kill him, then Elegon and then either Spirit Kings or Blade Lord.

    Timers boss are easy boss.

    Enrage timer is quite tight, you will have no chance on this boss if you cannot easily kill Gara'jal & Elegon. The tactics are mostly the same as normal, but you do need to execute them properly. Wind Step does especially more damage, you really cannot have more than one person with the debuff.

    Some tips

    1. Do not stack if you have Wind Step
    2. Make a 3-cycle CD rotation for Unseen Strike, healing CDs are mostly useless because of the knockback though. Disc priests are obscenely strong.
    3. Move the boss from the left, to the middle, to the right, so that tornadoes do not cause movement problems. Change boss location on the vortex ability.
    4. Use the slip-stream in p2, it does not change direction until the boss is at ~10%. You should start moving to the other side on 11-12%.

    Here's our kill video from tonight (Clarity Arthas US, 10m heroic): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0i8De...ature=youtu.be
    Just make sure people use personal CDs for Unseen strike, (barkskin, bearform etc.)
    Clear Windstep debuff with iceblock, BoP etc, and make sure people spread 8+yards before Wind step

    Seems rather simple and straight forward, compared to the first boss .
    Thanks for the video Zathan.

    spirit shell is insane against unseen strike.

    2 healed this cos we thought you are ment to, think it might be easier with 3 with the dmg in the last phase. On top of whats been said i would just say try and save bops for the the the last 2 unseen strike wind steps. I would also say to save a big healing cd for each end of the run so ppl are topped before they head off!
