Anub'Rekhan, Healer Guide

Posted 2 months, 3 weeks ago for patch 1.13.6 by Preston.

Anub'Rekhan Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for Anub'Rekhan in Naxxramas. 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 Crypt Guards.
    • Crypt Guard
      • Susceptible to stuns.
      • The tanks will be dealing with stacks of Acid Spit.
      • Don't stand in front to avoid Cleave.
      • Stay at least 10-yards away to avoid the root effect from Web.
      • At 50% health, dispel Enrage (enrage) to remove the increased attack speed and physical damage dealt effect.
  • Avoid the path in front of the boss when it turns to cast Impale. Players hit will be knocked in the air and take fall damage.
  • During Locust Swarm, stay at least 30-yards away from the boss to avoid the stacking damage over time and pacification effect from Locust Swarm.
    • This spawns a new Crypt Guard.
  • Summons 5-10 Corpse Scarabs from Crypt Guards and players when they die.

Resistance Levels

  • All players should use as much Nature Resistance as possible without sacrificing other stats.

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.

  • Be prepared to heal the tank through stacks of Locust Swarm.
