The Tarragrue, Healer Guide

Posted 1 week, 5 days ago for patch 9.1 by Preston.

The Tarragrue Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for The Tarragrue 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

  • The tanks will be dealing with Overpower, stunning them and greatly increasing physical damage taken with Crushed Armor.
  • Soothe Fury of the Ages to remove the increased damage dealt and haste effect.
  • Targets a random player with Chains of Eternity, after 8-seconds the first player hit in the line is pulled in and killed by Annihilating Smash.
  • When Predator's Howl is cast, stay more than 5-yards away from other players to avoid being feared by Unshakeable Dread.
  • During Hungering Mist, stay more than 25-yards away from the Tarragrue Images to avoid the heavy damage.
  • Grasp of Death deals heavy damage over time to all players.
  • On Heroic, Remnant of Forgotten Torment should be absorbed by players walking into them. Absorbing a portion of a Remnant applies a negative effect to the player for 1.5-minutes while lessening the "global" effect on all players or enemies.
  • At 10% health, The Jailer's Gaze removes all Anima Powers** from players and greatly increases Tarragrue's damage dealt.
    • **It's unclear if this means the Remnant effects or is simply leftover from a previous iteration of the fight. I'll update it when the journal is finalized.

Mythic Differences


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.

Debuffs to Track


  • Crushed Armor can cause the tanks to need additional healing, although a tank swap should occur before this is an issue.
  • Unshakeable Dread should be dispelled immediately.


Enrages to Soothe

Useful Addons

DBM Settings

Below are the DBM settings I'll be using for The Tarragrue 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.

DBM settings will be added as soon as possible.
