Strategy Guide

FIGHT OVERVIEW
  • This fight has 2 phases. Phase 2 starts at 20%. You win the fight at 3%.

  • You only have 1 hour per week to try this boss once he is engaged for the first time. Get everything ready before you pull it.

  • Carefully setup your defensive cooldowns. Collapsing Star deaths deal tons of raid damage and the boss hits the tank very hard.
