Jadefire Masters, Healer Guide

Updated 4 days, 10 hours ago for patch 8.1 by Preston. View the change log.

Jadefire Masters Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for Jadefire Masters 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 encounter as well as Dungeon Journal information. I'll continue to update it as-needed.

General Mechanics and Abilities

Normal and Heroic

This is a single stage encounter, during which players fight against a powerful Monk and Mage that combine their powers to release devastating attacks. Horde players fight against Mestrah and Manceroy and Alliance players fight against Ma'ra and Anathos.

Mestrah (H) / Ma'ra (A)

  • The tanks will be dealing with Multi-Sided Strike.
    • When a tank is launched into the air, they must face each of the images as they appear to prevent the damage.
      • Normal: three strikes occur
      • Heroic: four strikes occur
    • Applies Tested, increasing physical damage taken. This will force a tank switch.
  • Deals additional damage when their partner's health is lower than theirs due to Harmonious Spirits.
  • Whirling Jade Storm deals light damage to all players.
    • A player (likely the tank) must engage Mestrah/Ma'ra in melee combat to end the spell.
  • On Heroic, periodically summons a Spirit of Xuen.
    • Run away from the Spirit when fixated.
    • Avoid the Pounce impact location.

Manceroy (H) / Anathos (A)

  • The tanks will be dealing with Fireball.
    • Each hit applies a stack of Rising Flames.
      • Upon expiring, Burnout deals moderate to critical damage to the group depending on how many stacks were active.
  • Periodically teleports to a random area, gaining Fire Shield and casting Pyroblast.
    • The Shield must be damaged down so the cast can be interrupted to prevent fatal damage to the targeted player.
  • Dispel Searing Embers (magic).
    • Failure to dispel before the effect expires triggers Unleashed Ember, dealing moderate damage to all players.
  • On Heroic, avoid the locations of Magma Trap.
    • These should be triggered in a controlled manner to keep the area clear.
    • Triggering a Trap applies a debuff that increases damage taken from breaking future Traps.
    • The damage from the Trap itself and the subsequent fall damage will likely be fatal most of the time if you don't have a way to mitigate one or both of those aspects.

Combined Power Attacks

  • Different combined attacks will occur at different combined power levels. The current power level will likely be indicated by the boss' Energy.
  • 30 Power, Fire From Mist
    • Spawns several Living Bombs inside Chi-Ji's Song clouds.
    • Living Bomb
      • These have varying amounts of health and must be killed as quickly as possible. 
      • Avoid the small Beam as it slowly rotates around the Bomb.
      • Continually cast Explosion, dealing moderate damage to all players.
    • Chi-Ji's Song Clouds
      • Obstructs targeting into and out of the cloud. Players inside can't target anything outside, players outside can't target anything inside.
      • Players inside the cloud take light damage over time.
  • 60 Power, Flash of Hostility
    • Teleports the players and bosses to opposite sides of the room.
    • The barrier between the players and bosses must be killed.
      • On Heroic, only one section of the barrier can be destroyed.
        • Force Orbs can be carried to wall to enable other section to be killed.
    • Avoid the Ring of Hostility, which create a maze to navigate through.
    • Avoid the impact locations of Phoenix Strike.
  • 100 Power, The Serpent and the Phoenix
    • Both bosses transform into powerful forms.
    • Mestrah (H) / Ma'ra (A) transforms into a Jade Serpent.
    • Manceroy (H) / Anathos (A) transforms into a Phoenix.

Mythic Differences

Mestrah (H) / Ma'ra (A)

Manceroy (H) / Anathos (A)

Combined Power Attacks

  • 60 Power, Flash of Hostility
    • All barrier sections begin as unattackable and need to be unlocked using Force Orbs.
    • Avoid the Path of Niuzao images as they move around the maze and trample players.

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.

  • Use Major Cooldowns on
    • Power phases (Fire From Mist, Flash of Hostility, The Serpent and the Phoenix)
  • Use Minor Cooldowns
  • Pre-heal Before (mainly for heal over time classes)
    • Power phases (Fire From Mist, Flash of Hostility, The Serpent and the Phoenix)
    • Whirling Jade Storm
  • Potion of Replenishment use
    • after Power phases (Fire From Mist, Flash of Hostility, The Serpent and the Phoenix)
  • Other things to watch for
    • Searing Embers must be dispelled quickly.
    • Be aware of players that are out of line of sight due to [Jade Mist].

Debuffs to Track

Major

  • Searing Embers should be dispelled (magic).
  • (Optional) Tested causes the player to take additional physical damage.
    • Tracking this may allow you to save the tank with an external cooldown if necessary.

Minor

  • Spirit of Xuen fixate can cause players to need additional healing (need to figure out spell name/id).
  • (Optional) Chi-Ji's Song can cause players to need additional healing over time.
    • Additionally, knowing what players are inside or outside of the cloud can help you know who you can heal.

 DBM Settings

Below are the DBM settings I'll be using for Jadefire Masters. 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.
