Positioning

Since there are abilities that will occur during the entire encounter, you need a base positioning.
The base positioning will be what the raid will aim for when there are no other mechanics to move away from.
The base positioning must be followed during the entire fight and only move away from positions when other mechanics require movements.


 

 

 

Abilities and tactics

Abilities during all 3 phases

 

There are 3 abilities that will occur during the entire fight and are not phase dependent.
One is a tank debuff (Burden) and the other is adds spawn (Stalkers) that needs to be tanked and nuked. Boss will also shoot Hydra shots that needs to pass players to reduce damage.

In Raid Finder mode, you will not have Hydra shot.
In mythic mode, you will have one extra ability: Delicious Bufferfish (Pick up fish that gives 2% extra dmg and 350 mana every 1 sec up to 50 stacks)

Burden of Pain

Boss puts a debuff on main tank.
This does shadow damage every second.
100% of all physical damage the tank takes while having this debuff will be shared to entire raid.

Tactic: Burden of Pain

Tank Swap each Burden.
Use mitigation to minimize damage taken, so raid takes less damage.

 


 

Abyss Stalkers

Boss summons 3 adds.
The adds do melee shadow dmg.
When a stalker add dies, it leaves a pool on the ground for 20 sec, that does shadow dmg, and hit chance reduced by 75%.

Tactic: Abyss Stalkers

Off Tank
Pick up the adds asap and moves them to the edge of the room.

Dps
AoE nuke the adds fast.

In this way, the pools that develops when they die, are on the side, away from raid.
Extra tactic for heroic+: kill these adds in a way so that they develop the pools in a line since these pools will remove whirlwinds.


 

Hydra shots

Boss targets a player.
After 6 seconds, she shoots arrows on that player that does 3 million in physical damage.
Players standing in front of the arrows share damage with targeted player.

Each player hit, gets a debuff called Hydra Acid.
The debuff does ticking damage and if players get 2 or more stacks, they are stunned for 6 seconds.

Tactic: Hydra shots

It is very important that players know their positioning during the entire fight since this ability will be during the whole fight.

The ranged players needs to be divided in 2 groups.

Group 1 – on star triangle
Group 2 – on star marker

First player targeted by Hydra shot, needs to hide behind group 1.
Next player targeted by Hydra shot, needs to hide behind group 2.
Third player targeted by Hydra shot, needs to hide behind group 1.
And so on..

So not the same group gets the Acid debuff every time.

Have at least 3 ranged players in each group.
If there is not enough ranged, the melee players need to help: divide the melee in two groups and have them positioned between boss and their marker (star/triangle).


 

PHASE 1 – TEN THOUSAND FANGS


Phase 1 starts at pull.
The boss has 3 abilities in phase 1.
She will summon several tornadoes (slicing tornado) that travels through the room from one wall, to the other.
She will summon murlocs (Consuming Hunger) that jumps on players backs and immune to dmg.
She will summon pools of jellyfishes (Thundering Shock) on the ground (which knocks the murlocs of players backs).

Slicing Tornado

Boss summons tornadoes that travels from one side of the platform, to the other, with a gap between each tornado.
Getting hit leaves a debuff that does physical damage every second for 20 seconds.

Tactic: Slicing Tornado

The tornadoes comes in a line next to each other with a gap between each other.
The tornadoes can come from any direction in the room.

Make sure to always check where they come from and dodge them.
Make sure to come back to your position again because of other abilities.

Remember: If a tornado touches the green pool (from dead Abyss stalkers) they will vanish, so you can use that by standing behind them as well.

 

 


 

Consuming Hunger and Thundering Shock in heroic mode

Boss summons murlocs called Razorjaw Waverunners.
These murlocs jumps on players backs and are immune to damage.
Murloc on a player does physical dmg every 2 seconds.

Boss also targets several/all players and summons jellyfishes underneath them (Thundering Shock).
After 3 seconds they burst. Standing on the jellyfish does high dmg and stuns for 4 seconds.
This also knocks a murloc of the players back.

Murlocs shoot water blast at players that are low range. The blast does high dmg.

Normal mode: Just kill murlocs directly, nothing special. 

Tactic: Consuming Hunger and Thunder Shock in Heroic mode

Player with a murloc must stay on the jellyfish when boss casts Thundering Shock.
This knocks the murloc of the player and can now be attacked.

Player with no murloc on their back, must move away fast before the jellyfish explodes.

Dps
Kill the murlocs as soon as they are knocked of players.

The ink pools are important to stop the shark when he breathes in and sucks players to him.
Have selected ranged (healers/dps) players to do this.
