Uldir Boss Guides » MOTHER Guide

MOTHER is a boss in the Uldir raid in World of Warcraft. Our strategy guide will help you to defeat the MOTHER encounter and the loot listing below contains all of the loot she drops on each difficulty.



Overview

MOTHER is the second boss of Uldir, and consists of three separate phases. However, rather than transitioning at a certain percent, like most bosses, she transitions phases when she is moved from one chamber to the next. The goal is to reach the last chamber, where she takes increased damage.

Heroic Changes

  • The only Heroic change is a general increase in difficulty. There are no Heroic specific mechanics and abilities.

Strategy and Positioning

  • The boss encounter area consists of three chambers, each of which have an energy bar that slowly fills while the boss is in the corresponding chamber. When the energy bar reaches 100, the chamber is purged, killing all living matter within the space.
  • Each of the chambers are separated by a Defense Grid, and passing through it deals raidwide damage, which stacks until the debuff expires, and spawns an Embodiment of Contamination.
  • Depending on raid size, players should pass through one-by-one, starting with a tank and a few DPS, and ending with the other tank and a healer.
  • The Defense Grid acts as a barrier that prevents damage dealers, and healers, from casting at targets on the opposite side.

Strategies by Role


All Roles

  • Wind Tunnels will periodically open and push players towards the Purifying Flames. The direction in which the wind pushes players alternated each time.
  • After the boss enters the second chamber an Uldir Defensive Beam will periodically appear and move through the room. The safe zone will always be marked on the ground by a glowing square. This mechanic also happens in the last chamber.

DPS

  • Clinging Corruption must be interrupted to prevent the application of the periodic damage to the raid.
  • Damage dealers in the room without the boss must quickly kill the Embodiments of Corruption.
  • Major offensive cooldowns, such as Bloodlust or Heroism, should be used in the last chamber where MOTHER takes 100% increased damage due to Depleted Energy.

Healers

  • When multiple players pass through the Defense Grid there will be a large burst of raid damage.
  • If an Embodiment of Corruption is not interrupted, the whole raid will take periodic damage for 5 seconds.

Tanks

  • One of the tanks will hold the boss for the entire boss fight, while the second tank will cross the Defense Grid first to hold the adds that spawn.
  • The boss should always face away from the raid before casting Sanitizing Strike, which can also be avoided by the tank.
