Fatescribe Roh-Kalo, Healer Guide

Updated 10 months, 2 weeks ago for patch 9.1.5 by Preston. View the change log.

Fatescribe Roh-Kalo Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for Fatescribe Roh-Kalo in Sanctum of Domination in Shadowlands. 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, combat log information, and Dungeon Journal information. I'll continue to update it as-needed.

General Mechanics and Abilities

Normal and Heroic

During this encounter, players will be alternating between stage one and stage two until the Loom of Fates has been realigned twice and stage three begins.

Stage One - Scrying Fate

This stage begins the encounter and ends when Roh-Kalo reaches 70% and 40% health. It begins again when the Loom of Fates discs have been realigned in stage two.

Stage Two - Defying Destiny

This stage begins when Roh-Kalo reaches 70% and 40% health and ends after the Loom of Fates discs are realigned.

  • Roh-Kalo is immune to damage during this stage, due to Realign Fate.
  • The discs on the floor of the room are scrambled and each highlighted rune must be rotated into the marked position along its disc.
  • Applies Runic Affinity to random players, allowing them to realign the Loom of Fates.
    • Affected players must stand on the discs on the floor to make them rotate.
    • If an odd number of players are standing on the disc, Realignment: Clockwise rotates the disc clockwise.
    • If an even number of players are standing on the disc, Realignment: Counterclockwise rotates the disc counterclockwise.
  • Spawns several Fatespawn Monstrosities at the beginning of the stage.
    • Fatespawn Monstrosity
      • Interrupt Despair to prevent the moderate damage over time and reduced movement speed effect from being applied to all players.
      • Gradually gains stacks of Monstrosity's Boon, increasing damage dealt.
  • Deals light damage over time to all players for the duration of this stage with Unstable Accretion.
  • Players have 40-seconds to realign the Loom of Fates discs before Darkest Destiny deals fatal damage to all players.

Stage Three - Fated Terminus

This stage begins after the second time the Loom of Fates discs are aligned in stage two and ends when Roh-Kalo is killed.

  • The Loom of Fates remains active, its discs being periodically scrambled by Extemporaneous Fate.
    • When scrambled, players have 30-seconds to realign the discs using the same methods as stage two before Darkest Destiny deals fatal damage to all players.
  • Roh-Kalo continues to use the same abilities as stage one.

Mythic Differences

Stage One - Scrying Fate

  • When affected by Grim Portent, stand on the rune you're bound to on the Loom of Fates discs.
    • When the effect expires, players on the correct rune take light damage. Each affected player not on the correct rune deals critical damage to all players.
  • Avoid the Fate Fragments left behind by Echo of Eternity.

Stage Two - Defying Destiny

  • Avoid the Exposed Threads of Fate lines between the highlighted rune and the center of the room. Players hit take light damage over time.


Healing Notes

Quick Notes, All Difficulties

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.

  • Use Major Cooldowns
    • during stage two
  • Use Minor Cooldowns on
    • Twist Fate [occurs about every 45-seconds in stage one and three]
    • Invoke Destiny [occurs about every 45-seconds in stage one and three]
  • Pre-heal Before (mainly for heal over time classes)
  • Potion of Spiritual Clarity use
    • immediately following stage two
  • Other things to watch for
    • I'll add notes here as-needed.

Debuffs to Track



  • (Optional) Twist Fate causes players to need additional healing over time, but may clutter raid frames.
  • (Mythic) Grim Portent causes players to need additional healing.

Useful Addons

DBM Settings

Below are the DBM settings I'll be using for Fatescribe Roh-Kalo in Sanctum of Domination. 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.
