BFA Uldir: Taloc Raid Tactics

Background


Overview

This encounter consists of two phases.
In phase 1

  • You will only fight the boss.
  • Move to the side when you have the debuff (Plasma Discharge), because 3 pools will be created behind you.
  • You must make sure that all pools are on the left side of the platform.
  • The main tank will be targeted by boss and after some seconds, the boss will throw his weapon at the main tank. The hit does huge damage to the raid (the further away players are from the hit, the less dmg they take).
  • The main tank must make sure to run to the pools on the left side because the hit will also remove pools within 15 yards.
  • Raid runs to the far right side when boss throws his weapon and stand in the center otherwise.
  • Boss will charge to his weapon and retrieve it. Players in front of charge takes dmg and knockback.

In phase 2

  • The platform will move down (it is actually an elevator).
  • During this phase, the boss will take 99% less dmg.
  • The boss will bleed, and that blood becomes 2 types of adds. One (Blood) that must be tanked and creates blood pools. The other (Droplet) fixates and does knockback and dmg when reaching the player.
  • Stack up on one side close to the pools from phase 1
  • Melee attacks the blood add.
  • Ranged attacks the droplets and make sure they do not reach the raid.
  • Move sideways when a pool is created from the blood add.
