Shattered Halls, Healer Guide

Updated 3 months, 4 weeks ago for patch 2.5.2 by Preston. View the change log.

This page covers healer-focused strategies for the Shattered Halls dungeon in The Burning Crusade. 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 and combat log information. I'll continue to update it as-needed.



 Bosses

Below are guides for the bosses in Shattered Halls, including their abilities, healer notes, and addon settings.

Grand Warlock Nethekurse Dungeon Journal Model Grand Warlock Nethekurse

  • Don't stand in front to avoid Shadow Slam.
  • Avoid the locations of Shadow Fissures placed underneath random players.
  • Targets random players with Death Coil, dealing moderate damage and fearing them.
  • Targets random players with Shadow Sear, dealing light damage over time.
  • At 25% health, stay at least 5-yards away to avoid the heavy damage from Dark Spin.
    • Additionally, targets random players with Shadow Bolt, dealing light damage.

 Healing Notes

  • Be prepared for the damage dealt to all players while Dark Spin is active. Ideally, all melee players and the tank will stand away from the boss to avoid the heaviest damage.
