Overview


Queen Azshara is the final encounter in The Eternal Palace. It is a single boss with four phases. It was not extensively tested on PTR, and information below may change on live.



Fight Basics (Normal and Heroic)


Phase 1
  • You will fight Cyranus and Aethanel. These two adds must die at the same time, else they buff the other with an enrage. They do not share health.
  • Cyranus and Aethanel will occasionally cast Painful Memories and Longing.
  • They must be out of line of sight of one another for Painful Memories and in line of sight for Longing.
  • The two pillars and the titan console can be used as line of sight breaks by the tanks.
  • When the bosses have Longing, they create Cursed Heart puddles under themselves.
  • These pools should be avoided, and placed in strategic areas to not fill up the encounter space.
  • Each add also as a unique set of abilities:
    • Cyranus
      • Serrated Edge - applies a physical damage DoT to the tank.
      • Charged Spear - marks a player in the raid and throws a spear that damages anyone in its path, and explodes for AoE dmg on impact.
    • Aethanel
      • Chain Lightning - a basic chain lightning spell that can and should be interrupted.
      • Cold Blast - tank debuff that will freeze and stun the tank on the 4th application. Taunt swap at 3 stacks.
      • Lightning Orbs - orbs spawn from blue puddles and bounce around the room, they need to be dodged.
  • Azshara will also interact with the Ancient Wards around the room.
  • She will cast Drain Ancient Ward and remove 50% or more of the Wards energy.
  • Players must ensure the wards never get fully drained, by interacting with them and their Heart of Azeroth.
  • Charing an ancient ward will apply Drained Soul to the player who charged it, reducing their max hp by 10% for ~2mins. Stacking.
  • Azshara will also cast Beckon on random members of the raid.
  • After 8 seconds, they will begin to walk toward a rune in the middle of the encounter space.
  • If players reach this rune, they will be stunned in a bubble, and take massive damage.
  • Players can avoid being encased in these bubbles by running to the edge of the room when Beckon is about to be cast.
  • Azsahra will summon Arcane Orbs throughout the phase. Players simply need to quickly stand on these orbs to drain them.
  • Failure to drain them will result in them exploding, wiping the raid.
  • Overzealous Hulks will occasionally spawn in the center of the area, and fixate on an Ancient Ward. This is a priority target.
  • Players must burst down the Hulk before it can drain the ward.
  • Once both Cyranus and Aethanel are defeated, the next phase will begin.

Phase 2
  • Azshara starts the transition to the second phase by spawning more Arcane Orbs that must be soaked.
  • Azshara will also issue the first set of Decrees, and players must follow that decree, or take massive damage.
  • The decrees are:
    • Stand Alone - do not stand within 5 yards of another player.
    • Suffer - Must soak an arcane orb.
    • Obey - Must not soak an arcane orb.
    • Stand Together - Must stand near / on top of other players.
  • After the Arcane Orbs have been dealt with, Azshara will be attackable.
  • She will hit tanks with Arcane Joly, which increases their damage taken by 5% stacking. This is the taunt swap mechanic, around 6-8 stacks.
  • The entire raid will take passive damage whenever they are in line of sight of Queen Azshara. Healers simply need to heal this.
  • Several players will be debuffed with Arcane Burst. They must run out of line of sight of the raid before the debuff expires and explodes.
  • Azshara will activate a Ward of Power in the center of the encounter space. Its energy will be tracked by a special power bar in the UI.
  • The more power the ward has, the more damage the raid will take from various abilities.
  • Players can drain the ward of power by standing on it, causing them to be debuffed with Drained Souls much like the Ancient Wards.
  • If the boss is nearest to the Ward of Power on the ground, it will slowly gain power.
  • If the boss is nearest to one of the Ancient Wards, it will slowly be drained.
  • Tanks must move the boss appropriately around the room to control the draining and empowering of the various wards.
  • If at any time all 3 ancient wards lose all power, the fight ends and all players are instantly killed.
  • Azshara will continue to cast Beckon, which will draw players underneath her.
  • Any player successfully Beckoned under the boss will be Mind Controlled, and must be damaged out to break them free.
  • Being at max range when Beckon goes off will prevent you from ever reaching under the boss and becoming mind controlled.
  • Azshara will passively gain energy during this phase, and when she reaches 100 energy, she will cast Arcane Detonation.
  • Players must be line of sight when this goes off, or they will die.
  • Azshara will summon several adds throughout the phase that move toward the Ward of Power. If they reach the ward, they will die and empower it.
  • Players must focus down any adds that spawn, using crowd control where available, to prevent the ward from empowering.
  • At 70% HP, Azshara will move to the next phase.

Phase 3
  • Azshara will begin this phase exactly like the last, by summoning Arcane Orbs and issuing a decree to players.
  • Once the orbs are dealt with, two naga adds will spawn along with a Loyal Myrmidon.
  • The Myrmidon must be tanked. It will use Charged Spear just like in Phase 1.
  • These adds will empower the Ward of Power or drain the Ancient Wards, and must be killed quickly.
  • The naga adds also have a unique set of skills:
    • Static Shock - debuffs a random player and pulse nature damage to anyone within 8 yards.
    • Chain Lightning -a standard chain lightning that can and should be interrupted.
    • Crystallnie Shield - a shield that prevents interrupts and makes them immune. Can only be removed by Charged Spear.
  • During this phase Azshara has all the same skills, but her Beckon is empowered.
  • When Beckon goes off, any player picked will move 10% faster for every player within 8 yards of them. The raid must stay spread.
  • Azshara will also gain Reversal of Fortune which will randomly swap the location of an Ancient Ward and the Ward of Power.
  • The phase ends when all the adds have been defeated.

Phase 4
  • The boss will no longer summon adds in this phase, but her Beckon is further empowered.
  • Any player who is mind controlled by Beckon, will not be able to be broke free.
  • Her new tank mechanic is called Void Touched and will reduce the healing the tank receives by 10% per stack.
  • The boss will also cast Overload on all the Ancient Wards.
  • If the wards retain there any charges from this, they will cast Massive Energy Spike
    Massive Energy Spike
    .
  • The raid will need to cause Controlled Bursts by releasing these energy charges so the wards to not fully Overload.
  • Release an energy charge will cause the player to receive a dot, drain another ancient ward, or buff a random dps in the raid.
  • Azshara will also spawn Nether Portals that need to be placed strategically. They deal dmg to players and drain the Ancient Wards.
  • She will also gain Piercing Gaze which is shadow damage in a line and must be dodged.
  • This phase lasts until Azshara is defeated. The soft enrage is the raid running out of space and the Ancient Wards overloading/draining too quickly.

On Heroic Difficulty and higher the boss will apply two decrees to each person, increasing the complexity of each decree cast. She will also empower her Reversal of Fortune skill, causing all Ancient Wards and Wards of Power to swap locations. Additionally, Arcane Burst is empowered, causing a chain reaction of ever-increasing Arcane Bursts should players get it. Finally, she will also empower her Beckon increasing the movement speed of the targets by 20% instead of 10, if any players are within 8 yards of them.

Strategies by Role


All Roles

  • Queen Azshara was limited in testing on the PTR, and as such things may change on live.
  • Players should have a strong understanding of the Ancient Ward mechanics, and how decrees work.
  • Virtually all adds are a priority over the boss when they are up.
  • Set raid target icons on each of the Ancient Wards and titan consoles so players know where to go to line of sight when needed.
  • Do not take too many stacks of Drained Soul, else your HP will not be high enough to survive mechanics.

DPS

  • Take either single target talents and essences as melee, and multi-dot talents as ranged if applicable.
  • If anyone becomes mind controlled, quickly focus them down.
  • Adds are always the priority.
  • Interrupts are key, set a rotation for the different adds and assign targets.
  • In the final phase, if you receive the Essence of Azeroth buff, do as much damage as possible.

Healers

  • Raid damage is passive on this encounter, and the tanks can spike.
  • There is very little raid damage players will take unless they are hitting avoidable mechanics.
  • Many sources of damage are hard-hitting DoTs on individual players.
  • Be prepared to save people who make mistakes with Decrees.

Tanks

  • Taunt swap based on the Cold Blast stacks in Phase 1.
  • In Phase 2 and 3 taunt swap based on Arcane Vulnerability.
  • In Phase 4 taunt swap based on stacks of Void Touched.
  • Boss movement and add positioning is critical on this fight.
