Al’Akir Crib Sheet

Welcome to Morrighan’s Crib Sheet Raid Guides. This Crib Sheet is for the 10 man version of Al’Akir, which can be found in the Throne of the Four Winds raid in Uldum. The tactics for 25 man are the same as far as I am aware and simply involve scaling up what is written here. You can find consolidated Crib Sheets on the menu to the right.

  • 1 tank, 3 healers, 6 dps.

Phase 1:

  • Separate into pairs with each pair standing on the repeating large shapes on the platform.  The pairs should line up as follows:
    • 2 dps
    • 1 healer, 1 dps
    • 1 healer, tank
    • 1 healer, 1 dps
    • 2 dps
  • Avoid stuff that will kill you in this order of priority (always apply this priority – don’t avoid the ice only to get stuck in the whirlwinds):
    • Make sure you run through the gap in the wall of whirlwinds that comes around the platform (hint: run at an angle if you were a bit slow in starting).  Note that you will see a hazy version of the wall just before it appears to help you spot it.
    • Move into melee range to stop yourself being knocked off the platform on Wind Blast.
    • Don’t stand on the ice.

Phase 2:

  • Hug the tank.  No more Wind Blast or ice, but the wall of whirlwinds remains.
  • Some small electric spark adds spawn.  You need to kill these to increase the damage Al’Akir takes.  Controlled nuking is needed to keep the debuff up.  Mostly you can just nuke them as they appear in the post-nerf version.

Phase 3:

  • You’re flying.  Mark someone and hug them.  By hug I mean stay on the same level as them.
  • Move progressively down the area as lightning spawns.  You need to plan to give yourself enough room.  Either move in small increments or move down twice, then go to the bottom and start moving up.
  • One player periodically gets Lightning Rod and damages people around them.  That person should move away by going around the boss.  Stay on the same level as the raid and don’t move backwards as if you get too far from the boss you get caught in wind and die.
