Ouro, Healer Guide

Updated 1 year, 1 month ago for patch 1.13.6 and Season of Mastery by Preston. View the change log.

Ouro Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for Ouro in the Temple of Ahn'Qiraj. 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

  • Ouro alternates between being above and below ground about every 90-seconds.
  • While above ground:
    • The tanks will be dealing with Sweep and Sand Blast.
      • Don't stand in the front hemisphere of the boss to avoid these.
      • Sweep knocks back any player hit, causing a temporary tank switch until the other tank is back in range.
      • Sand Blast stuns any player hit, again causing a temporary tank switch until the stun is over.
  • While below ground:
    • Avoid the locations of Quake.
    • When reemerging, avoid the location of Ground Rupture.
      • Spawns dozens of Ouro Scarabs that fixate on random players, dealing light damage with their melee attacks.
  • At 20% health, goes Berserk, gaining increased attack speed.
    • Additionally, no longer goes below ground and will continually spawn Quakes and Ouro Scarabs.

Season of Mastery Differences

  • After killing The Prophet Skeram, players can interact with the Prophecy of Chaos at the back of the hallway leading deeper into Ahn'Quiraj.
    • The Prophecy of Chaos allows players to increase the difficulty of all bosses by causing different lesser enemies to spawn during encounters. Higher difficulty levels are unlocked with higher reputation and award additional loot.
      • Glyph of Madness (Friendly) causes Claw Tentacles to spawn.
        • Claw Tentacle
      • Glyph of Darkness (Honored) causes Eye Tentacles to spawn.
        • Eye Tentacle
          • Interrupt Mind Flay to prevent the light damage over time dealt to a random player.
      • Glyph of Chaos (Revered) causes Giant Claw Tentacles to spawn.
        • Giant Claw Tentacle
          • Avoid the impact location of Ground Rupture.
          • The tanks will be dealing with Thrash, taking a burst of moderate damage.
          • If no players are in melee range, it will submerge and reemerge under another player.
      • Glyph of the Void (Exalted) causes Eye of C'Thun to spawn.
        • Eye of C'Thun
          • Stay at least 10-yards away from other players to avoid chaining the damage from Eye Beam.

Resistance Levels

  • The tanks should have as much Nature Resistance as possible without sacrificing other stats.
  • Other players 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.

  • Keep the current tank near full health as it's likely they'll end up out of range when hit by Sweep.
  • While Ouro is below ground, movement will be high, so be prepared to use any instant-cast heals or heal over time spells you have if necessary.
