Dire Maul East, Healer Guide

Updated 1 month ago for patch 1.13 by Preston. View the change log.

This page covers healer-focused strategies for the Dire Maul East 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.

Best for players level 58-60.

Below are guides for the bosses in Dire Maul East, including their abilities, healer notes, and addon settings.
