Temple of Sethraliss, Healer Guide

Updated 4 days, 11 hours ago for patch 8.0 by Preston. View the change log.

This page covers healer-focused strategies for the Temple of Sethraliss 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 Shrine of the Storm, including their abilities, healer notes, and addon settings.

Aspix Dungeon Journal Model Aderis and Aspix



 Healing Notes

 Debuffs to Track

DBM settings and other useful addons will be added as they're available.

Merektha Dungeon Journal Model Merektha

  • Avoid the impact locations of Noxious Breath and the resulting Toxic Pools.
  • Turn away from Merektha when Blinding Sand is cast.
  • During Burrow, avoid Merektha when she darts through the center of the room.
  • Eggs along the outside of the room will periodically Hatch.
    • This alternates spawning sets of four Venomous Ophidian or Sand-crusted Striker.
    • Avoid the Dust Clouds created by Sand-crusted Striker.
    • Venomous Ophidian deal damage to random players with Cytotoxin (dispel, poison)
  • On Heroic, players affected by A Knot of Snakes will need critical healing before the snakes are killed or stunned.

 Healing Notes

 Debuffs to Track

DBM settings and other useful addons will be added as they're available.

Galvazzt Dungeon Journal Model Galvazzt

  • Energy Cores will periodically spawn around the room and channel Galvanized into Galvazzt, increasing his energy.
    • Players must stand between these and the boss to slow down the energy gain as much as possible.
    • Blocking the energy will deal steadily increasing damage from Galvanized.
  • At 100% energy, Consume Charge deals heavy damage to all players.
    • This grants Galvazzt a stack of Capacitance, increasing his damage done.
  • Induction periodically deals moderate damage to the group.

Avatar of Sethraliss Dungeon Journal Model Avatar of Sethraliss

During this fight, players will be fighting against various adds while the Heart of Sethraliss is suspended in the center of the room.

  • The Avatar of Sethraliss must be healed to full health to complete the encounter.
  • Hoodoo Hexer
    • Channels Taint on the Avatar of Sethraliss, decreasing the healing it receives.
  • Heart Guardian
    • Applies the Heart Attack debuff to their current target, increasing damage taken.
    • When killed, leaves behind an Energy Fragment.
      • Activate these to grant the Heart of Sethraliss Life Force, healing it for an additional amount each time it receives healing.
  • On Heroic, Plague Doctor
  • Avoid the Plague Toads summoned by Rain of Toads.
    • Being hit applies Plague (dispel, disease), reducing healing done and dealing stacking damage over time.
  • Pulse deals light damage over time to the group.
  • Avoid the impact locations of Cardiac Shock.

 Healing Notes

  • Use Cooldowns to heal the Avatar of Sethraliss when no Taint channels are active.

 Trash Mobs

Below are notes for the trash mobs in the Temple of Sethraliss. The Temple of Sethraliss has a relatively linear layout. The trash below is ordered as if you're completing the bosses in the order they're listed above. Some spells don't exist in the database and will be added as soon as they're available.

Entrance thru Aderis and Aspix

  • Charged Dust Devil
  • Sandswept Marksman
    • Targets random players with Power Shot, dealing damage to everyone caught between the enemy and the targeted player.
  • Krolusk Pup
    • Charges random players (unclear if there's a spell attached to this).

Aderis and Aspix thru Merektha

Merektha thru Galvazzt

  • Agitated Nimbus
  • Partway through, there is a lighting orb gauntlet. Avoid the orbs as you move through the area.
  • Static-charged Dervish
    • These are stationary and zap random players.

Galvazzt thru Avatar of Sethraliss

  • This area begins with a two-part lightning orb gauntlet. Avoid the orbs as you did before while you move through the area.
  • The next area is a bit like a gauntlet.
    • Pick up one of the lightning orbs from either side of the room and return it to the large snake skull in the back of the room to move on.
    • Faithless Conscripts will continually spawn.
    • Orb Guardians will steal the lightning orb from players, kill them to get it back.
    • Avoid the random lightning bold impact locations.
  • Plague Doctor
