Cata Heroic Cheat Sheet

I found this on a website and figured it might be helpful for people who aren't familiar with all the new dungeons yet.

Original Site - http://www.relicsofcorbantis.com/downloads/heroic_guide.pdf

Grim Batol
General Umbriss
- Spread out and avoid blitz.
- Have DPS slow the Malignant troggs and kill. Don’t let Malignant troggs explode near the boss. However, if you keep the Malignant Trogg CC'd throughout the Umbriss encounter no subsequent ones will spawn and you can then kill at the end.
- Tank picks up other troggs.
- Boss frenzies at 30 percent health. Pop cooldowns.

Forgemaster Throngus
- Picks weapons and changes attack style based on selection.
- Sword – dispel magic debuff on tank.
- Mace – he’s slowed so kite him around. Avoid trail of flames. Will charge random members.
- Shield – will take no damage and cone in front – all need to be behind him to avoid damage and attack
him.
- Move to avoid rock falls.

Dragha Shadowburner
- Slow, root and kill summoned elemental. Will explode if it reaches its target.
- On dragon, avoid fire patches on the ground. Move when casting flame breath to avoid. Kill fire
elementals.
- Will switch back to the warlock – burn him down.

Erudax
- Move out of the way of Binding Shadows. Will heal the buff and do damage to the target.
- After Enfeebling Blow, tank has a debuff that increases damage taken. Try to minimize boss hits on the tank while this is on. And give him room for a good sized knockback.
- Shadow Gale – everybody needs to run to the safe spot in the middle. DPS should stack to one side to make running to the gale easier. Boss takes extra damage during gale.
- After Gale, two adds are spawned and will try to hatch eggs. DPS need to split and take them both down. The adds can be slowed but not stunned, if they get to eggs they heal the boss.
- Shield of Nightmares will be on one add – add will explode on death.

Shadowfang Keep
Baron Ashbury
- Patrols so watch out.
- Interrupt his heal after the party has healed up a bit from Strangle – otherwise the tank might not
survive.
- Debuff put on random target – needs to be dispelled ASAP and target healed up.
- At 20 percent Dark Archangel form. Party needs to be topped off before this. Burn him down and AoE
heal.

Baron Silverlaine
- Group healing debuff.
- At 75, 50 and 25 percent he’ll summon a Worgen boss.
- Odo the Blindwatcher can be off-tanked and burned down.
- Wolfmaster Nandos spawns smaller wolf adds. Tank grabs them all and AoE them down.
- Razorclaw the Butcher. Shadowsteps. Pop cooldowns, ignore Razorclaw and burn down the boss.

Commander Springvale (Skippable)
- Need to burn boss while keeping the adds from casting. Unholy Empowerment heals the boss and gives
him a buff.
- Interrupt and kill the two adds as quick as possible.
- Tank should be able to grab one of the adds himself with the boss.
- Focus on the boss, pop cooldowns and burn him hard.
- Second set of adds, interrupt and kill again.
- Burn boss. CC any adds and concentrate on the boss.

Lord Walden
- Throws poison debuffs – need to keep moving to clear green poison, stand still for red poison.
- Don’t stand in icy shards on the ground.
- Stay spread out.
- Heal through Toxic Catalyst and burn down the boss.

Lord Godfrey
- Bring him down to the bottom and keep him pointed away from the group to avoid AoE on pistol barrage.
- Kill Bloodthirsty Ghouls quick – they have a mortal strike.
- Interrupt Cursed Bullets, or ensure that someone in the group is descursing the Cursed Bullets debuff.

Vortex Pinnacle
Grand Vizier Ertan
- Stack in the center circle.
- The boss will spawn tornadoes which collapse to the middle occasionally, when this happens uses the spaces in between them to run out.
- Try and have everyone facing a different direction while killing the boss so the Lurking Tempest spawns stay hidden.

Altarius
- Tank him facing away from the group as he does a cone-shaped AOE – DPS stand up-wind to get the haste buff. Wind moves around.
- Has a frontal breath you need to keep off the group.
- Whirlwinds will spawn in the beginning and move all over the platform, if they hit you they will knock you in the air. Warlocks can teleport out of it and priests can lifegrip if needed.

Asaad
- Casts Chain Lightning which jumps very far, so depending on your group it might be easier to just heal through rather than spread way out.
- Casts Static Cling which roots everyone to the ground, jump right as he finishes his cast to avoid this. Healer needs to cleanse this magic root.
- Stand in the middle of the lightning triangle to avoid AoE damage.
- After the storm, spread out again.

- Will spawn adds, just concentrate on the boss.

Helix Gearbreaker
- Avoid bombs being thrown by boss.
- Will pickup a random member and smash them.
- After the oaf is dead, Helix will jump on party members. Stand still and let the group beat
on Helix – but also need to avoid bombs.
- Chest bomb will be strapped to party members – everybody else must avoid when they blow up. Stand under the overhang to avoid fall damage after the bomb blows up.

Foe Reaper 5000

Admiral Ripsnarl

- Cleaves so don’t stack up.
- Will adds in clouds.
- Tank needs to pickup adds and they need to be killed.
- At 25 percent, grab adds but concentrate on killing the boss.

Captain Cookie
- Bad food makes you ill. Good food gives you buffs.
- The best way to deal with Cookie's food without taking excessive damage from the bad food auras is to alternate between eating the good and the rotten food.

- Stay together, kill the boss and mana up before getting the next nightmare.

- Coordinate who takes which rope ahead of time.

Stonecore
Corborus
- Move away from ground crystals and AoE.
- Kill crabs – they have a stacking bleed.
- Stay out of dust clouds when the boss returns.

Slabhide
- Avoid frontal AoE (except tank).
- Avoid falling pieces of the ceiling. Stay out of pools of fire on the ground.
- Hide behind pillars that are 10+ yards away from the boss during crystal storm – line of sight so you can’t be hit.
Ozruk
- Ignore his two debuffs – they actually help you break paralyze.
- Paralyze stuns you for 8 seconds … if it isn’t broken you take 50k damage. Can be cleansed.
- Healers can reflect a DoT (Holy Fire, Flame Shock, Moonfire, SW:P) onto themselves during the fight (if he has the Bulwark up) to break paralyze when it happens. Paladins can bubble once.
- After paralyze he will shatter 20 yards in all directions – melee and tank need to give him room or die.
- Ground slam – frontal cone. Needs to be pointed away from the party.
- Enrage at 20 percent that can be removed.

High Priestess Azil
- Gravity wells – position DPS so these will block Followers coming in later in the fight and help kill them.
Followers come in from the right side (when facing the boss before the pull). Also allows for plenty of
room to run around and avoid rocks.
- Avoid rocks being thrown.
- Interrupt Force Grip.

Throne of the Tides
Lady Naz’jar
- Shock Blast – hits tank hard and must be interrupted.
- Geyser – move out of the way.
- At 66 and 33 percent she’ll warp to the middle and put a damage shield up. Will spawn 3 adds – CC

damages people around you – if you get it move away.
- Avoid the tornados that move from her to the edge of the room.

Commander Ulthok
- Stay away from fissures thrown on the floor. They’ll grow in size during the fight.
- Healer needs to pay attention to player getting squeezed and heal them.

- At 50 percent the squid will start mind controlling members. Need to DPS them down until they are
freed.

- Unyielding Behemoths can be tanked or kited. Have AoE damage so need to be kept away from the raid.
- Faceless sappers need to be killed quick. Tank must pick up Blight Beasts and kite it around.
- After the sappers are killed, have the tank kill the beasts while the group concentrates on Ozumat.

Lost City of the Tol'vir
General Husam
- Avoid dust clouds. Move around traps on the floor.

- Kite Augh during whirlwind.

High Prophet Barim
- Spread out to avoid extra damage on the debuff he puts out on people.

- Kite around the Phoenix. Avoid fire it leaves behind. Killing the Phoenix just means another will spawn.
So focus DPS on the boss and just kite the Phoenix the whole fight.
- At 50 percent you’re brought to the shadow world and must kill the Shadow Phoenix. Root/stun/slow adds that spawn from people and kite
the Phoenix around so the adds don't reach it.

Siamat

have an AoE and should be interrupted.
- Avoid hurricanes on the ground.
- Ignore adds when he unbubbles, pop cooldowns and DPS hard.
- Spread out to avoid chain lightning.

Halls of Origination
Temple Guardian Anhuur
- Target of Divine Reckoning needs to be dispelled ASAP. Will take significant damage as will those near.
- Move out of Searing Light.
- At 66 and 33 percent the boss will bubble. Need to pull levers in the pits below. Have whole party jump down, tank
will get the snakes while DPS pull the lever.
- One person remains with the boss and will interrupt Hymn as soon as the bubble comes off.

Earthrager Ptah
- Stay out of gas cloud.
- Cleaves so melee DPS in the back.
- At 50 percent summons adds and dies. Clump together and AoE them down.
- Avoid whirlwinds.

Anraphet
- Move out of Alpha Beams.
- Dispel Nemesis Strike on the tank.
- Heal through Omega Stance.
- Crumbling Ruin will lower your hit points after each Alpha and Omega.
- Make sure to use the whole room for kiting if needed, you don't want to trap the tank with "void zones" left behind from the Alpha Beams.

Isiset
- Look away from Super Nova.
- Move out of laser beams.
- At 66 percent she splits. Kill Astral Rain – she won’t be able to use this AoE any more.

- She’ll have a tough shield, but very little DPS at this point.

Ammunae
- Interrupt Wither, and if it hits remove it.
- Kill Seedling Pods as quick as possible – they will heal him.
- Consume Life Energy can be interrupted.
- Adds have a stacking debuff bleed so you don’t want to
get hit too much. Try killing a spore and moving the adds on top of it if you are starting to get overwhelmed.

Setesh
- Boss is untankable. Tank can focus on adds.
- Target Chaos Portals and kill them as soon as possible.
- Falling Seeds of Chaos will explode on players for a small amount of damage, but also give a buff that increases damage so it's worth it to pop them. Stay out of void zones on the ground. Avoid mini-bombs.
- Tank kills worms with AoE. Robots should be slowed, trapped and kited around by the tank for the whole fight while
DPS concentrates on the boss.

Rajh
- Avoid fire tornado.
- Sunstrike is an unremovable dot on the party.
- Interrupt the summon of a sun orb.
- Spread out to avoid his leap and AoE damage. If you have enough interrupters it is possible to interrupt this as well as the sun orb, which will help cut down on the group damage going out and make your healer's mana bar more happy.
- Heal through Blessing of the Sun. Group takes AoE damage, but boss takes extra damage as well.

Sticky please.

This is a fantastic post. It is the perfect introductory look at what one needs to do for each boss in the heroic dungeons. This is precisely what people new to heroics absolutely need to know to be able to be halfway competent entering a heroic.

For general umbriss it's easier to just CC the purple trogg and it won't spawn again unless it is killed.

I had that in the write-up, but reworded it so it was more clear. Thanks.

If you have group members that consistently fail the lightning frogger event on DM, you can cheat a little if you have a Rogue in your group. After killing the goblin, port to the ship and run to the other side of the door the robot stands at. The Rogue can pick the lock from the opposite side. Helps tons when going for the achievement as well.

People who can't get past the lightning probably shouldn't be in a heroic anyways.

- Avoid falling seed of chaos.


Actually you want to get hit by these as they give you a buff for more damage.

Edit: also, CCing the Malignant Trogg doesn't stop more from spawning.

The last time I did Grim Batol I sheeped the 1st Malignant Trogg and only regular troggs came with the rest of the waves, but it's possible that was a bug so I'll make sure to check that next time I go through there. Also, I will edit the part about the seeds of chaos in just a minute.
