Eredar Twins, Healer Guide

Updated 8 months, 3 weeks ago for patch 2.5.5 by Preston. View the change log.

Eredar Twins Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for Eredar Twins in Sunwell Plateau in The Burning Crusade. 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, combat log information, and Dungeon Journal information. I'll continue to update it as-needed.

The notes below mostly pertain to progression difficulty, meaning if you out-gear the encounter or use extra healers they may not apply.

  • Use Cooldowns
  • Other things to watch for
    • Healing required will be consistent throughout the encounter, so conserving mana whenever possible will be necessary.
