Hex Lord Malacrass, Healer Guide

Updated 5 months, 4 weeks ago for patch 2.5.4 by Preston. View the change log.

Hex Lord Malacrass Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for Hex Lord Malacrass in Zul'Aman 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.

General Mechanics and Abilities



Resistance Levels

  • All players should use as much Shadow Resistance as possible without sacrificing other stats.

Healing Notes

Quick Notes

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 can be higher on random players or the tanks depending on which class's soul is being drained.

Debuffs to Track

Major

Minor

  • Frost Nova (dispel, magic) should be dispelled from tanks quickly.
  • Several debuffs can be dispelled immediately.
  • Unstable Afflication (dispel, magic) can be dispelled if the dispelling player can handle the damage they'll take and silence effect.
  • Explosive Trap causes players to need light healing over time.

Buffs to Purge



Useful Addons

DBM Settings

Below are the DBM settings I'll be using for Hex Lord Malacrass in Zul'Aman. You can set them up however you'd like, but these ones should work well as a starting point.
