Eye of Azshara, Healer Guide

Updated 11 months, 2 weeks ago for patch 7.3.5 and Timewalking by Preston. View the change log.

This page covers healer-focused strategies for the Eye of Azshara dungeon in Legion. 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 as well as Dungeon Journal and combat log information. I'll continue to update it as-needed.
