Champion of the Light, Healer Guide

Updated 4 weeks ago for patch 8.1 by Preston. View the change log.

Champion of the Light Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for Champion of the Light in Battle of Dazar'alor. 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 with the fight as well as Dungeon Journal information. I'll continue to update it as-needed.

General Mechanics and Abilities

Normal and Heroic

During the encounter, Frida Ironbellows (H) / Ra'wani Kanae (A) (referred to as Champion in the rest of the guide) will be buffing herself with Seals and expending them to trigger powerful effects.

  • A Crusader's Seal is applied to the Champion when the encounter begins, at 100% energy Release Seal consumes the Seal and triggers an additional effect, noted below.
  • Forces of the Crusade will periodically join the fight in groups of three - one Darkforged Crusader and two Anointed Disciples.
    • These should be constantly moving to avoid the healing effect from Wave of Light, or the effect should be Purged.
    • Anointed Disciple
      • Divine Burst deals moderate damage to the current aggro target.
      • Interrupt Penance if it's targeted on an enemy to prevent the healing effect.
      • Interrupt Heal to prevent the healing effect.
    • Darkforged Crusader
      • Crusader Strike deals moderate damage to the current aggro target.
      • Turn away from these when Blinding Faith is cast to avoid the disorient effect.
      • Move all enemies out of Consecration to prevent the reduced damage taken.
  • On Heroic, periodically casts [Divine Protection] on an enemy, effectively making them immune to damage.
  • At 30% health, gains Avenging Wrath, increasing damage done.

Mythic Differences


Healing Notes

Quick Notes, All Difficulties

The notes below mostly pertain to progression difficulty, meaning if you out-gear the difficulty you're on or use extra healers they may not apply.

Debuffs to Track


  • Sacred Blade causes tanks to need increasing healing over time.

 DBM Settings

Below are the DBM settings I'll be using for Champion of the Light. You can set them up however you'd like, but these ones should work well as a starting point. Some settings may be Mythic only.

DBM Settings will be added once the fights are closer to release.
