Chronomatic Anomaly, DPS Guide

Patch 7.1.5 Updated
Jan 16, 2017

Chronomatic Anomaly Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a DPS-focused strategy for Chronomatic Anomaly in The Nighthold. While it's tailored for DPS, other roles may also find the information useful. If you have any suggestions or feedback, you can leave a comment below or tweet @VirendraDG.

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

  • Passage of Time will periodically affect your casting time, movement speed, and cooldowns. This is the main gimmick of this fight, as it affects how much time you have to react to the other mechanics.
  • Burst of Time targets several players with an orb that explodes when it hits the ground. Move away from the area.
  • Time Bomb places a bomb on a random player for a varying amount of time. That player has the duration of the debuff to get as far away from the group as possible before exploding.
  • Waning Time Particle adds will leave a Temporal Rift upon death
    • Warp Nightwell is an interruptible cast that deals raid-wide damage and deals more damage with each successive cast. On Heroic, this ability becomes uninterruptible at 30%.
    • Defeat these adds quickly so that your tanks can use the Temporal Rift to interrupt Power Overwhelming.
  • Temporal Orbs will damage anything in their path. Avoid them.

DPS Strategy

For the time being, there's just not much to say about this fight without doing it on live servers. Updates will be made ASAP.
