Ayamiss the Hunter, Healer Guide

Posted 3 weeks, 2 days ago for patch 1.13 by Preston.

Ayamiss the Hunter Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for Ayamiss the Hunter in the Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj. 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

Stage One - From the Sky 

This stage begins the encounter and ends when Ayamiss reaches 70% health.

  • Cannot be reached by melee attacks.
  • Applies stacks of Poison Stinger to the current aggro target.
  • Deals moderate damage to all players with Stinger Spray.
  • Targets a random player with Paralyze, stunning them on top of the altar.
    • Spawns a Hive'Zara Larva at the bottom of the altar stairs that moves towards the Paralyzed player.
      • If the Larva reaches the player, the player is killed and a Hive'Zara Hornet spawns.

Stage Two - Grounded

This stages begins when Ayamiss reaches 70% health and ends when he's killed.

  • Lands and can be reached by melee attacks.
  • Abilities from stage one continue.
  • Deals extra damage to the tank with Thrash.

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.
