Lady Ashvane, Healer Guide

Updated 3 years, 10 months ago for patch 8.2.5 by Preston. View the change log.

Lady Ashvane Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for Lady Ashvane in The Eternal Palace. 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

Normal and Heroic

During this encounter players will be contending with Lady Ashvane's alternating stages.

Stage One - Hardened Carapace

This stage begins the encounter and restarts when the boss reaches 100% Energy. It ends when the Hardened Carapace is destroyed.

  • Hardened Carapace absorbs damage equal to 40% of the boss' maximum health, increasing in strength every time it regenerates.
  • The tanks will be dealing with Barnacle Bash, which forces a tank switch.
  • Avoid the impact the locations of Coral Growth.
  • Intercept Rippling Wave bubbles from Coral Growth to prevent them from reaching Ashvane.
  • When affected by Briny Bubble, move at least 12-yards away from other players to prevent trapping them.
    • These bubbles must be killed to free affected players.
  • Avoid the impact locations of Upsurge.

Stage Two - Exposed Azerite

This stage begins when the Hardened Carapace is destroyed and ends when Ashvane reaches 100% energy.

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



  • Waterlogged causes players to need additional healing.

 DBM Settings

Below are the DBM settings I'll be using for Lady Ashvane. 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.
