Legendary: Unity + Rylakstalker's Piercing

Notes: This boss is AoE / Single target, but I would focus more on single target here. You can use Binding Shot during Exposed Core outside of the shield.

Legendary: Unity + Rylakstalker's Piercing

Covenant: Night Fae

Notes: Save cooldowns for the first set of adds (1st intermission) or the platform if you are doing the boss on mythic. The second pet from Animal Companion is bugging out when you go to the platform, and that is why I recommend playing with one pet on the platform and dismissing it before the next Glyph of Relocation.

You can use Aspect of the Turtle or Soulshape to dodge Genesis Rings.

Aspect of the Turtle might be also used for soaking bad positioned traps so that other players won't get trapped.

Legendary: Unity + Rylakstalker's Piercing

Covenant: Night Fae

Notes: You should aim to use your cooldowns for the add, or right before the add spawns, so it dies faster. Make sure to play Harmony of the Tortollan + Born To Be Wild so you can dodge Disintegration Halo by alternating Soulshape With Aspect of the Turtle.

  1. Halo: Soulshape or Aspect of the Turtle
  2. Haloes: Soulshape late or Aspect of the Turtle, both of them
  3. Haloes: Soak the first one and then Soulshape the later 2 rings or Immune all 3 of them with Aspect of the Turtle

Legendary: Unity + Rylakstalker's Piercing

Covenant: Night Fae

Notes: You want to use your first cooldowns on the big add during the intermission and then again on the small adds during 2nd intermission and finally on boss after the intermission.

You can Freezing Trap the Acquisitions Automa, usually on mythic, you don't want to kill them at all. Use Feign Death conduit (Resilience of the Hunter) every Cosmic Shift.

Halondrus

Legendary: Unity + Rylakstalker's Piercing

Covenant: Venthyr

Notes: Try to use the Feign Death conduit (Resilience of the Hunter) every Earthbreaker Missiles; my general rule is to press it when there is 1 sec left on the timer for the Missiles.

If you are a bomb carrier, you can pick up the bomb with Aspect of the Turtle when you have the Charge Exposure debuff but make sure to drop it before Turtle goes off.

Anduin Wrynn

Legendary: Unity + Rylakstalker's Piercing

Covenant: Night Fae

Notes: I suggest playing Korayn with First Strike.

Use your cooldowns at the 1-minute mark, which means during the 1st Kingsmourne Hungers inside or not; by doing that, your following cooldowns lines up well for the entire fight.

You can use Freezing Trap on one of the Grim Reflections in phase 2.

In phase 3, you can use Aspect of the Turtle to immune the explosion from Hopelessness. That way you don’t have to clear at least one set of the debuffs.

Notes: Use your cooldowns on every Swarm of Decay and utilize your Feign Death conduit (Resilience of the Hunter) for damage reduction. At the end of the fight, you can trap the Manifest Shadows to reduce some of the AoE damage.

On mythic difficulty use Aspect of the Turtle right before activation of the Domination Chains (INTERMISSION SET) by doing that you are deflecting the dot from the stacks of chain and it’s easier to heal the raid.

Whenever Sludgefist reaches 100 energy he will target a player and charge in their direction. This player will want to get behind a pillar so the boss smashes into it.
