Morrighan’s LFR Fall of Deathwing Crib Sheet

The second half of the raid is as follows.  These are LFR tactics only.  For videos and normal tactics click on the links.  Heroic tactics are on the Icy Veins site.  I know LFR is fairly faceroll but I have seen some stunning wipes because people didn’t know what they were doing (though even reading these tactics won’t help the tank who didn’t understand that he was meant to use taunt and get hit).

Ultraxion [MMO Champion | Icy Veins]

  • Hug at the bottom of the stairs to share Unstable Monstrosity.  He can’t parry.  Damage increases as the fight goes on.
  • You all have an extra button called Heroic Will.  When he casts Hour of Twilight, press it!  Hour of Twilight doesn’t kill on LFR, but as the fight goes on you are at risk from dying if too many people don’t click.
  • 2 tanks taunt the boss between them after each gets Fading Light.  Fading Light has a random duration.  When its got less then 5 seconds left on it you need to hit Heroic Will.  Not being in the normal realm when Fading Light runs out WILL kill the tank even on LFR.
  • Healing buffs come in the form of three different coloured crystals that healers need to run out and click on.  They spawn in three waves.  There are only enough crystals for the number of healers so each healer should take ONE crystal in the entire fight.  Don’t go and get another one when another colour spawns!

Top tip: if your UI does not show the Heroic Will button, or you don’t like where it appears, you can use this macro: /click ExtraActionButton1

Warmaster Blackhorn [MMO Champion | Icy Veins]

  • The primary gimmick of this fight is that you have to protect the gunship you are on as well as defeating the adds (phase 1) and the boss (phase 2).
  • Phase 1  is 3 waves of adds:
    • All players should stand in the BIG purple swirly things.  If not enough players do this, those that do will die.  If no players do this the ship takes damage.
    • Standing in the little purple swirls is optional on LFR – just don’t bother moving out of them.
    • Dreadblade and Slayer adds do a frontal cleave attack with a stacking DoT of Shadow or Physical damage.  The 2 tanks need to alternate which they tank each wave.
  • Phase 2 is Blackhorn and his dragon Goriona:
    • Ranged dps should hit Goriona until she reaches 25% when she will fly away.  She casts shadowy fire at players which leave a big purple fire circle where they land.  Don’t stand in fire.
    • Spread around behind the boss, but not too far  to minimise stuns from Shockwave (frontal cone attack he sometimes turns to cast) with casters being more than 10 yards away to avoid Disrupting Roar.
    • Tanks should switch when Devastate stacks become too high.
    • Blackhorn does 1% more damage for every 1% of health he loses, so damage ramps up.

Spine of Deathwing [MMO Champion | Icy Veins]

  • Kill ONE Corruption.  You must then make sure you don’t kill the others so make sure pets aren’t hitting them and stop using AoE.
  • DPS the  Hideous Amalgamation to about 30%.  Then STOP.
  • Kill Corrupted Bloods.  These leave a pool on the floor.  When the Hideous Amalgamation stands in a pool it gets a stack of Absorbed Blood.  At 9 stacks the add starts to do lots of AoE damage.  Stand it right next to the plate you are trying to remove (as close to his head as you can get).  Then kill the add.
  • When the add dies it casts a big explosion.  Move away.  If you are close enough this will remove an armor plate revealing a Burning Tendon.  Kill the Burning Tendon before the plate repairs itself.
  • Repeat two more times.  Its exactly the same, only the extra holes will spawn more Bloods so the add will gain stacks quicker.  Try to avoid 9 stacks on a mob with high health.
  • Deathwing can roll, so make sure you aren’t all standing on one side.

Madness of Deathwing [MMO Champion | Icy Veins]

  • In phase 1 you attack four limbs on four platforms.
    • The best order for LFR is to start where you are, jump left twice, then finish off with the one on the right.  Each gets harder as a buff provided by one of the aspects is removed.
    • You can start on Deathwing, but as soon as the large tentacle spawns at the back of the platform hit it.
    • When the Elementium Bolt spawns all ranged should hit it.  Type /tar ele or use a macro.
    • When Regenerative Bloods appear, AoE them.
    • On the last platform only you need to single target and kill Blistering Tentacles.
    • If everything else is dead, hit Deathwing.  Each platform has an enrage timer but you shouldn’t come close to it.
  •  Jump back one platform to the left for Phase 2.
    • Hit Deathwing a bit.
    • When tentacles spawn the first time, kill them.
    • Use Dream (another Extra Action Button) if the tentacles case Shrapnel on you.
    • When the two larger adds appear the first time, kill them.
    • Hit Deathwing until dead.
    • If your dps is low you may need to kill adds twice.  The tentacles don’t do a lot of damage, especially if people use Dream, but the big adds WILL kill your tanks eventually, even on LFR.

Morrighan’s Siege of Wyrmrest Temple LFR Crib Sheet

Covering LFR difficulty only.  I will add links to MMO Champion’s boss pages (Learn to Raid vids, Encounter Journal entries and loot tables) as well as the well written tactics at Icy Veins for people doing normal/heroic raiding.

There are four bosses in the Siege of Wymrest Temple.

Morchock [MMO Champion | Icy Veins]

  • 2 tanks who should always be the closest to the boss to take the double Stomp damage.
  • The raid should stand behind the boss at maximum melee range to share Stomp damage.
  • 7 ranged/healers should move to each red crystal as it spawns and sit right on top of it until it explodes. Closer = less damage.  While this isn’t vital, if your health is low it might kill you.
  • Every so often he will pull you all towards him and cast The Earth Consumes you which spawns some spikes (don’t get hit as these spawn as they do damage).  Hide behind them.
  • Hide from the black blood in the safe spots behind the spikes.  Once the blood has spawned you can move to dps him if you have a safe spot available.  The blood will kill you even on LFR.
  • He enrages at 20%.

Warlord Zon’ozz [ MMO Champion | Icy Veins]

  • 1 tank should fact him away from the raid.
  • Melee should hug behind the boss.  Ranged should stand further back and behind him.
  • Dispel Disrupting Shadows immediately.
  • Every so often a void spawns.  It can be bounced between players, making it grow larger.  A small group, including a healer, should do this.  It can be safely ignored, but more bounces will speed up the fight by making the boss take more damage during the burn phase.
  • Once it hits the boss, hug.  He will do lots of AoE damage.  Pop cooldowns and burn.
  • Repeat until dead.

Yor’sahj the Unsleeping [MMO Champion | Icy Veins]

  • 1 tank.
  • Its all about the oozes here.  There are 6 possible different coloured oozes and he will spawn 3 every so often.  You can kill one of them.  The other 2 will merge with the boss and give him certain abilities.  Its all about the combinations.
  • The oozes do the following:
    • Purple means every 5 heals on a target cause the target to explode and take damage.  Use big heals and avoid AoE heals. Better just to kill it.
    • Green causes the raid to be digested and does minor damage.  There is no splash damage in LFR so hug.  This is almost harmless in LFR.
    • Yellow increases attack speed and adds an AoE component to Void Bolt.  Hug.
    • Black spawns add that cast spells on players.  Hug and AoE.
    • Red damages 3/8 people at random.  Hug.
    • Blue causes a mana void to appear and suck mana from every ranged caster.  Kill it and the mana comes back to those nearby.  It only steals mana once.
  • In LFR mode I personally would kill Purple > Yellow > Red > Black.  Again, Green is completely harmless!!!!!!  If you can’t manage to AoE the adds, then killing Black before red might be a good idea.
  • You can hug for every ooze combination.  Only Blue requires you to move (to dps the mana void).

Hagara the Storm Binder [MMO Champion | Icy Veins]

  • This is a 3 phase fight.  There is a ‘main phase’ and then 2 other ‘special phases’ – an Ice Phase and a Lightning Phase.  During special phases she is immune to all damage.
  • Focused Assault does a lot of damage to the 1 tank so be ready with extra healing.  She doesn’t move while channeling it so move back away from her.  Move towards the edge so by the time a special phase comes, you are on the edge.
  • In the main phase hug up.  Dispell Shattered Ice and have a ranged ‘tank’ Ice Lance.
  • Ice Phase:
    • She covers most of the platform in a big bubble.  Get out of it and hug at a Binding Crystal.  Stay there until the walls have spawned.
    • She casts four walls of icy spikes that rotate clockwise around the platform.  Group and move around between them, paying attention at all times.
    • Binding Crystals appear that you need to dps while running round and round.  Destroy all four to end the phase and go back to normal.  Don’t risk getting hit by a wall to do more damage.
  • Lightning Phase:
    • Kill adds near one of the Lightning Conductors so it overloads.  It will cause someone to be Electrocuted.
    • Create a chain of people to spread Lightning between Lightning Conductors to overload them.  Some healing is needed here.
  • Repeat Main > Special > Main > Other Special until dead.

 

Morrighan’s Siege of Wyrmrest Temple Crib Sheet

Yes, thats right – they’re back.  These cover LFR and normal difficulty only.  Its as short as I can make it and contains all the relevent information, but not the extreme detail.  I will add links to MMO Champion’s boss pages (Learn to Raid vids, Encounter Journal entries and loot tables) as well as the well written tactics at Icy Veins.

Please note updates will be listed at the bottom of the guide along with the date of the update.

There are four bosses in the Siege of Wymrest Temple.

Morchock [MMO Champion | Icy Veins]

  • 2 tanks who should always be the closest to the boss to take the double Stomp damage.
  • The raid should stand behind the boss at maximum melee range to share Stomp damage.
  • 3 (10 man) or 7 (25 man) ranged should move to each red crystal as it spawns and sit right on top of it until it explodes. Closer = less damage.  Assign a group to do this including healers.
  • Every so often he will pull you all towards him and cast The Earth Consumes you which spawns some spikes (don’t get hit as these spawn as they do damage).  Hide behind them.
  • Hide from the black blood in the safe spots behind the spikes.  Once the blood has spawned you can move to dps him if you have a safe spot available.
  • He enrages at 20%.

Warlord Zon’ozz [ MMO Champion | Icy Veins]

  • 1 tank should ensure he’s facing the raid when the Void spawns, but not during any Psychic Drain (i.e. turn him a lot).  Turn him away once it has spawned.
  • Melee should hug behind the boss.  Ranged should stand further back towards the edge of the pool.  Split healers between these groups.
  • Dispel Disrupting Shadows freely unless the Void is up, then do it carefully to avoid killing anyone.
  • Every so often a void spawns.  It will hit players and then travel back in the opposite direction.  You want to bounce it about 5 times between the ranged and melee groups.  After that, let it hit Zon’ozz.  It will stun him, remove Focused Anger stacks and increase his damage taken during phase 2 5% for every bounce you managed.  Don’t ever let it hit the edge of the room.   In LFR difficulty it will automatically hit Zon’ozz after its been bounced enough times.
  • Once it hits the boss, hug.  He will do lots of AoE damage.  Pop cooldowns and burn.
  • Repeat until dead.

Yor’sahj the Unsleeping [MMO Champion | Icy Veins]

  • He does a stacking dot to his main target called Void Bolt.  You want 2 tanks to swap back and forth.
  • Apart from that its all about the oozes here.  There are 6 possible different coloured oozes and he will spawn 3 every so often.  You can kill one of them.  The other 2 will merge with the boss and give him certain abilities.  Its all about the combinations.
  • The oozes do the following:
    • Purple means every 5 heals on a target cause the target to explode and take damage.  Use big heals and avoid AoE heals. Best to assign healers per group to avoid double heals.
    • Green causes the raid to be digested. Spread out at least 4 yards. Less dangerous in LFR.
    • Yellow increases attack speed and adds an AoE component to Void Bolt.  Hug.
    • Black spawns add that cast spells on players.  Hug and AoE.
    • Red damages 3/8 people at random.  Hug.
    • Blue causes a mana void to appear and suck mana from every ranged caster.  Kill it and the mana comes back to those nearby.  It only steals mana once.
  • In normal modes Green > Yellow > Purple is your kill order.
  • In LFR mode Yellow > Purple > Black is your kill order.
  • Hug unless you have Green (spread 4 yards) or Blue on Normal (get close to the Mana Void then).

Hagara the Storm Binder [MMO Champion | Icy Veins]

  • This is a 3 phase fight.  There is a ‘main phase’ and then 2 other ‘special phases’ – an Ice Phase and a Lightning Phase.  During special phases she is immune to all damage.
  • Focused Assault does a lot of damage to the 1 tank so be ready with extra healing.  She doesn’t move while channeling it so run through her and stand the other side.
  • In the main phase hug up.  Dispell Shattered Ice and have a ranged ‘tank’ Ice Lance.  Set a spot for Ice Tombs and hug to AoE them down (these are not in LFR, they do not chain and do no splash damage).
  • Ice Phase:
    • She covers most of the platform in a big bubble.  Get out of it but stay as close as possible.
    • She casts four walls of icy spikes that rotate clockwise around the platform.  Group and move around between them, paying attention at all times.
    • In normal (not LFR) she drops icicles (stay out of the marks on the ground).
    • Binding Crystals appear that you need to dps while running round and round.  Destroy all four to end the phase and go back to normal.
  • Lightning Phase:
    • Kill adds near one of the Lightning Conductors so it overloads.  It will cause someone to be Electrocuted.
    • Create a chain between the Electrocuted person and other Lightning Conductors to overload them.
    • Lightning Storm randomly hits people and does a stacking debuff that makes it do more damage.  Remove the debuff once it starts getting high if you can (i.e. bubbles, CoS, etc.)
  • Repeat Main > Special > Main > Other Special until dead.

Minor updates to Morchock and Zon’ozz 5/12/11.
