Lucifron, Healer Guide

Updated 1 month, 1 week ago for patch 1.13 by Preston. View the change log.

Lucifron Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for Lucifron in Molten Core. 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

  • Accompanied by two Flamewaker Protectors.
    • Flamewaker Protectors
      • Don't stand in front of these to avoid Cleave
      • Purge Dominate Mind to remove the mind-control effect.
  • Dispel Impending Doom (magic) to prevent the heavy damage dealt if the effect expires.
  • Dispel Lucifron's Curse (curse) to remove the increased ability cost effect.
    • You stand more than 40-yards away from Lucifron to avoid this effect, just be sure the tanks are still being healed.
  • Stay at least 20-yards away to avoid Shadow Shock.

Resistance Levels

  • Tanks:
    • Holding Lucifron should have as much Shadow Resistance as possible without sacrificing their other stats.
  • Melee should have as much Shadow Resistance as possible without sacrificing their other stats.
  • 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.

  • Don't cast any spells when affected by Lucifron's Curse (dispel, curse), unless you can dispel yourself.
  • Be prepared to dispel player-applied debuffs after Dominate Mind is Purged.
  • Be prepared to heal melee DPS being hit by Shadow Shock.
