Ebonroc, Healer Guide

Posted 1 year, 5 months ago for patch 1.13 by Preston.

Firemaw Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for Ebonroc in Blackwing Lair. 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

  • The tanks will be dealing with Wing Buffet, which causes a threat drop.
  • The tanks will also be dealing with Shadow of Ebonroc, which will force a tank switch to prevent the boss from healing.
  • Deals extra damage to the tanks with Thrash.
  • Don't stand in front of the boss to avoid Shadow Flame

Resistance Levels

  • Tanks should have as much Fire Resistance as possible without sacrificing other stats, as well as use Onyxia Scale Cloak.
  • Melee and Ranged/Healers generally won't make use of any additional Resistances on this encounter.

Healing Notes

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.

  • The tanks will be taking heavy damage throughout the encounter but otherwise it shouldn't be very healing intensive.
