Heroic Changes

Strategy and Positioning


Phase 1:
  • The raid should be spread about 5 yards apart to limit the number of targets affected by Oblivion Sphere.
  • Players charmed can be knocked, and gripped, or damaged out of the orb.
  • Imminent Ruin deals fall off damage, so parts of the room should be kept open to allow players with the debuff to move away from the raid.

Phase 2 (75/50/25%):

Healers

  • Each time the boss transitions to Phase 2, there will be a large burst of damage.

Tanks
