The Prophet Skitra, Healer Guide

Posted 4 weeks ago for patch 8.3 by Preston.

The Prophet Skitra Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for The Prophet Skitra in Ny'alotha, the Waking City. 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, logs information, and Dungeon Journal information. I'll continue to update it as-needed.

General Mechanics and Abilities

Normal and Heroic

Stage One - The Prophet

  • Targets the tank and two random players with Shadow Shock, applying a stacking debuff that increases shadow damage taken.
  • When affected by Shred Psyche, move as far away from other players as possible.
  • On Heroic, stay at least 10-yards away from the Images of Absolution to avoid taking damage.

Stage Two - Illusionary Projections

  • All players will be affected by either Clouded Mind or Twisted Mind, splitting them into different realms.
    • Players in each realm must find the real Prophet Skitra.
      • If a false Illusion is killed, all players take critical damage from Mindquake.
  • Applies a stack of Dark Ritual to all players every 5-seconds, increasing shadow damage taken.
  • Deals moderate damage to all players with Illusionary Bold.

Mythic Differences

  • Shred Psyche effects are only visible to players that are in the same realm as the affected player.


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


 DBM Settings

Below are the DBM settings I'll be using for The Prophet Skitra. 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 closer to release.
