Opulence, Healer Guide

Updated 7 months, 1 week ago for patch 8.1.5 by Preston. View the change log.

Opulence Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for Opulence 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 two stage encounter during which players will be splitting into two groups to face the Guardian's gauntlet before facing Opulence in the final stage.

This is a "flashback" encounter for Horde players, meaning they'll be completing it as Alliance races.

Stage One - Raiding the Vault

During this stage, players are making their way through the guarded and trapped hallways of the vault.

Crown Jewels

Several Crown Jewels are available for players to pick up when their respective Guardian makes it to the hallway section at 40% health. Each player may only take one jewel.

Enemies and Traps

Several enemies and traps line the hallways of the vault.

Stage Two - Toppling the Guardian

Players now engage directly with Opulence.

  • Don't engage Opulence while hallway Guardians are alive to avoid the increased health and damage buff from Hoard Power.
  • When affected by Liquid Gold, run away from the group to drop the resulting Molten Gold pool.
  • Spirit of Gold periodically join the encounter and move towards the edge of the room.
    • These should be killed as quickly as possible. 
    • If these reach the edge of the room and begin Channel Gold, avoid the impact locations of Gold Burst.
  • Wail of Greed deals steadily increasing damage to the group over 10-seconds.
    • Upon completion, grants Opluence a stack of Greed.
  • On Heroic, stack with the player affected by Coin Shower to split the damage.
  • On Heroic, the tanks will be dealing with heavy damage from Coin Sweep.
  •

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

Major

  • Hex of Lethargy should be dispelled quickly to prevent the damage while moving.
  • (Optional) Pulse-quickening Toxin causes players to need steadily increasing healing over time, however, virtually all players will be affected by this at once so it may be less important to track.

Minor

 DBM Settings

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