Shazzrah, Healer Guide

Updated 10 months, 3 weeks ago for patch 1.13.6 and Season of Mastery by Preston. View the change log.

Shazzrah Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for Shazzrah in Molten Core. 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

  • Periodically Blinks to a player's location, resetting threat.
  • Stay at least 30-yards away to avoid damage from Arcane Explosion.
  • Counterspell is cast every 15-seconds, avoid casting around that time to avoid the interrupt.
  • Purge Deaden Magic to remove the reduced magic damage taken effect.
  • Dispel Shazzrah's Curse (curse) to remove the increased magic damage taken effect.

Season of Mastery Differences

  • Blink leaves behind an Image of Shazzrah.
    • Image of Shazzrah

Resistance Levels

  • Tanks should have as much Arcane Resistance as possible without sacrificing their other stats.
  • Melee should have as much Arcane Resistance as possible without sacrificing their other stats.
  • Ranged/Healers generally won't make use of any additional Resistances on this encounter.

Healing Notes

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.

  • Tanks and melee should have priority dispel on Shazzrah's Curse (curse).
  • Be prepared to reposition as necessary after Blink.
