[10N] Heart of Fear - Blade Lord Ta'Yak Guide By Mysticknight
For this encounter you will need:
So this fight is broken down into 2 phases these are the spells your raid will have to handle in phase one:
http://files1.guildlaunch.net/guild/...pest-Slash.gif Tempest Slash - Creates a tornado that will inflect 130,000 damage and knock back anyone in its path
http://files1.guildlaunch.net/guild/...een-Strike.gif Unseen Strike - Targets a random raider and disappear for 5 sec, He will then reappear and inflect 5,400,000 damage that will be split with all that is hit
http://files1.guildlaunch.net/guild/...-Wind-Step.gif Wind Step - Targets a random raider and inflect 153,000 damage over 3 sec and hit anyone within his target of 8 yards.
http://files1.guildlaunch.net/guild/...-Intensily.gif Intensify - this is a stacking buff on the boss that will increase his damage and haste by 5% every 60 sec.
http://files1.guildlaunch.net/guild/...ng-Assault.gif Overwhelming Assault - A stacking debuff on the tanks that will increase damage taken by 100% for 45 sec also initial hit will apply a 150% damage increase to the boss on his strike.
This encounter will have 4 hall ways that you're able to move into, this will allow you to avoid the tornado that are spawned around the area you are tanking the boss in
Phase One (100% to 20%)
When you first start this encounter you will want to have the tank hold the boss where he stands, you will have your raid stay spread 9 yards a part. You do this so Wind Step wont infect more then 1 person. The Tanks will want to do a taunt swap after the main tank gains 1 stack of Overwhelming Assault. after this point taunt as it drops off, the tanks will most likely have 2 stacks after the first set of taunts.
Blue Dot = Tanks, Lime Dots = Melee DPS, Yellow Dots = Healers, Orange Dots = Range DPS
Keeping your raid spread out 9 yards apart will allow you to handle his Wind Step
The boss will be casting Tempest strikes and causing Tornado that will spawn on the map have your raid stay spread and avoid getting hit by these.
Each time Tempest Strike is cast he will spawn a Tornado near his target and will not despawn till he hits phase 2
Once the boss cast Unseen strike you will have 5 sec to stack on the person with the Red arrow on the top of their head. The raid will then share the damage of this strike (we used a raid cool down each time we all stack up to take the unseen strike. Also note that the unseen strike will do a knock back. after the 3rd unseen strike we moved the boss and raid clock wise to the hall on the right. the area that u were in will most liky be filled with tornado. Rinse and repeat, and move to a different hall way after 3 strikes.
Once Unseen Strike has been cast the boss will disappear for 5 sec, his target will have a Red arrow on top of his head, have your raid stack up in-front of the boss to share the damage of the strike
Once you are almost 20% its best to make sure no other unseen strikes are coming up, and before you push 20% to phase make sure everyone is topped off.
Phase Two (19% to Win)
http://files1.guildlaunch.net/guild/...-Unleashed.gif Storm Unleashed - a raid debuff that will Inflect 20,000 Damage per sec.
Once you reach 20% the boss will then suck everyone to the center of the room, and move you to one end of the hall, he will be casting tornado down the opposite side of the hall. You will have the whole raid move side to side avoid tornado to get to the boss and burn him. Save lust for when you have the whole raid burning him. We used raid cool downs as people travel through the wind tunnel to the other boss. Also note anyone that gets hit by the tornado will be sent back about 15 yards of where they are hit. He will then Move to the other side of the room and you must have your whole raid once again travel through the wind tunnel again and burn him down to win.
Make sure to top your raid off to full before moving through the wind tunnel
Over all this fight is quite simple, the hard part will be having your raid not get hit by tornado in the final phase. Make sure everyone is topped off before they take they journey down the wind tunnel.
