Healing Perspectives: Thok

2 Comments

This is the one fight where the big baddie we fight actually seems both to me – big and bad. If there was one fight I saved my all caps “OH MAH GAWD” moments for, this would be it. Just saying – having a ridiculously huge dinosaur come charging at you is a legit… and I mean legit reason to panic.

Not that I panicked. Not once. Nope. Ok… maybe twice. No, really.

OK FINE HE ATE ME THREE TIMES ALREADY! *ahem*

Healing Perspectives: Council of Elders

Leave a comment

I’m slowly catching up on my healing posts! Council of Elders is one of those fights where the sheer list of abilities can make it seem like a complex fight, but actually keeping track of them in the fight isn’t half as hard. This fight is very much like Spirit Kings – with more chaos and a soft enrage timer. In general, the raid should be spread out for this fight.

The key to this fight is Gara’jal the Spiritbinder, who apparently has a difficult time moving on. So he makes life difficult for us by empowering each of the troll Elders. They gain different abilities when they are empowered, and the longer the fight gets, the more difficult it gets to heal.

For a complete detailed strategy on the fight, I highly recommend checking out many of the great resources on it. This post is primarily from a healing perspective and assumes basic knowledge of the mechanics.

Healing Perspectives: Spirit Kings

2 Comments

Spirit Kings is an interesting fight which involves dealing with four types of foes – each with their own quirky title. The good news is that we get to deal with one after another. The bad news is that much like ghosts of christmas past, one of their abilities haunts us to the very end of the overall fight, even after they’ve each been defeated. (I’ve made special note next to the abilities that persist through death). This fight is ALL about raid awareness and personal responsibility – its about taking your time, doing the dance and not getting killed.

Healing Perspectives: Gara’jal the Spiritbinder

Leave a comment

This is me playing catch up. With my month long vacation, there were a bunch of healing guides that got left in my drafts folder and didn’t get published when I would’ve liked them to. Well, better late than never! Gara’jal the Spiritbinder is a fun and interesting fight although I, as usual, had mixed feelings about fighting a Zandalari troll. I can’t let go of the fact that my druid is exalted with them!

The fight takes place in the real world and the spirit realm, with the final enrage phase at 20% health. The real world is incredibly heal-intensive with three random players taking “voodoo doll” damage, while the spirit realm prioritises getting folks up to 100% health on a 30 second deadline. All in all, Gara’jal is an incredibly fun and fast-paced fight to heal.
