The Coven of Shivarra, Healer Guide

Patch 7.3.2 Updated
November 21, 2017

The Coven of Shivarra Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for The Coven of Shivarra in Antorus, the Burning Throne. 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 fight as well as Dungeon Journal information. I'll continue to update it as-needed.

 General Mechanics and Abilities

 Normal and Heroic

During this encounter, you'll be fighting against various shivarra as they torment the titan's souls.

The Shivarra
  • The shivarra share a health pool and take decreased damage when within 18-yards of one another due to Shivan Pact.
    • Two shivarra will be active at a time.
    • The active shivarra change every time two Titan apparitions are defeated (as noted below).
    • The order is Fire, Shadow, Ice. (Fire + Shadow are active, then Shadow + Ice, and finally Ice + Fire).
  • The group takes steadily increasing damage over time from Sense of Dread while a titan is being tormented.
    • This goes to 9-stacks and then resets.
  • Noura, Mother of Flames
    • The tanks will be dealing with Fiery Strike.
      • Don't stand in front of Noura to avoid the cone effect.
    • Avoid the impact location of Whirling Saber and the path it takes back to Noura.
    • On Heroic, when affected by Fulminating Pulse move at least 6-yards away from other players.
  • Asara, Mother of Night
  • Diima, Mother of Gloom
    • The tanks will be dealing with Flashfreeze.
    • Players affected by Chilled Blood will need to be healed quickly to remove the absorb effect.
    • On Heroic, stand further away from the Orb of Frost to mitigate the decreased movement speed effect while it's active.
Torment of the Titans

While tormented, an apparition of the titan must be defeated before its corresponding effect becomes too much to handle.

  • Torment of Aman'thul
    • Machinations of Aman'Thul heals the apparition to full health and deals damage over time to the group.
      • DPS must kill the Aman'Thul apparition before the cast finishes.
  • Torment of Golganneth
  • Torment of Khaz'goroth
  • Torment of Norgannon
    • Avoid the spectral visages summoned by Spectral Army of Norgannon.
      • Use stuns, roots, and knockback effects to help create openings. 
      • After 20-seconds, they can be killed.

Mythic Raid Icon Mythic Differences

On Mythic, there is an entirely new shivarra, but everything else stays the same.

  • Thu'raya, Mother of the Cosmos
    • Touch of the Cosmos must be interrupted.
    • When affected by Cosmic Glare, stand close to the other linked player to make the beam as small as possible.
      • When not affected, avoid the beam between the two affected players.


 Healing Notes

Quick Notes, All Difficulties

The Shivarra
  • Be aware of the steadily increasing damage over time from Sense of Dread.
    • This will likely require a group-healing cooldown as it nears 9-stacks.
  • Also be aware of the random damage from Touch of Darkness.
  • Players affected by Chilled Blood will need heavy healing until the absorb effect is removed.
  • On Heroic, players affected by Fulminating Pulse will need light healing over time.
  • On Heroic, the group will take moderate damage over time during Storm of Darkness.
    • This will likely require a group-healing cooldown.
Torment of the Titans

 DBM Settings

Below are the DBM settings I'll be using for The Coven of Shivarra. 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.
