Taloc, Healer Guide

Updated 7 minutes ago for patch 8.0 by Preston. View the change log.

Taloc Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for Taloc in Uldir. 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

This is a two stage fight, during which players will be fighting Taloc directly and then his blood-fuel remnants.

Stage One - The Corrupted Construct

This stage starts the encounter and ends when Taloc reaches 35% health. It will begin again following Stage Two and ends when Taloc reaches 0% health.

  • When affected by Plasma Discharge, move away from the group to drop the resulting Blood Storm.
  • Avoid the the tank affected by Cudgel of Gore, they will be aiming this to absorb Blood Storms.
    • Afterwards, don't stand between Taloc and the Cudgel to avoid Retrieve Cudgel.
  • Don't stand in front of Taloc when he turns and casts Sanguine Static.
  • The second time Stage One begins, Volatile Droplets continue to spawn from Stage Two.

Stage Two - Ruin's Descent

This stage starts when Taloc reaches 35% health and ends when the elevator reaches the bottom, after which stage one begins again.

Mythic Differences

Stage One - The Corrupted Construct

  • When affected by Hardened Arteries, move at least 8-yards away from other players.
  • Stack with the tank affected by Enlarged Heart to help split the damage.

 DBM Settings

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