Atal'Dazar, Healer Guide

Updated 4 days, 12 hours ago for patch 8.0 by Preston. View the change log.

This page covers healer-focused strategies for the Atal'Dazar dungeon. While it's tailored for healers, other roles may also find the information useful. If you have any suggestions or feedback, you can leave a comment below or tweet @PrestonDvorak.

This guide has been updated and maintained based on my own experiences as well as Dungeon Journal information. I'll continue to update it as-needed.


Below are guides for the bosses in Atal'Dazar, including their abilities, healer notes, and addon settings.

Priestess Alun'za Dungeon Journal Model Priestess Alun'za

  • The tank will be dealing with Gilded Claws.
  • Before Transfusion is cast, stand in a Tainted Blood pool to prevent Alun'za from healing.
  • Dispel Molten Gold.
  • On Heroic, avoid the corruption from the Golden Cauldrons at the front of the room.
  • On Heroic, a Spirit of Gold will move around to absorb pools of Tainted Blood.
    • If no pools are present, the Spirit will attack players, causing them to need additional healing.

Rezan Dungeon Journal Model Rezan

  • The tank will be dealing with Serrated Teeth.
  • Walk over Ancient Dry Bones in a controlled manner.
    • Touching a pile will spawn a Reanimated Raptor and slow your movement speed.
    • On Heroic, Rezan will also spawn a Reanimated Raptor if he passes over Ancient Dry Bones.
    • At 50% health, Bone Quake awakens all remaining Reanimated Raptors.
  • When targeted by Pursuit, run away from Rezan.
    • Being caught will deal critical damage over 8-seconds from Devour.
  • Break line of sight on Rezan when Terrifying Visage (dispel, magic) is cast.

 Healing Notes

  • Use Cooldowns after Rezan reaches 50% health, while extra Reanimated Raptors are active.

Yazma Dungeon Journal Model Yazma

  • The tank will be dealing with Skewer.
  • When Yazma reaches 100% energy, if targeted by Soulrend, run far away from Yazma.
    • The resulting Soulspawn must be killed before it reaches Yazma.
      • If it reaches Yazma, a stack of Soulfeast is applied to all players.
      • These are susceptible to stuns, knock backs, and other crowd control.
    • On Heroic, Soulrend causes all players to spawn a Soulspawn.
      • Players will be taking additional damage from Soul Link while their Soulspawn is alive.
  • Avoid Echoes of Shadra and the resulting Shadowy Remains.
