Raid Bosses

Ny'alotha

As a Demon Hunter you can use Fel Rush and Vengeful Retreat to dodge Gale Blast (Heroic) without gaining too many stacks of Slow (Mythic Only).

Tail Swipe makes a return to BfA, so don’t stand behind the boss or inside his body. You want your movement abilities to deal with the other abilities on this fight.

Maut

Not a whole lot you can do that's special on this fight as a Demon Hunter. You just have to figure out when your second set of cooldowns are needed.

The Prophet Skitra

Single Target
15
30
45

100

This fight is single target with important target swapping.

You can use Netherwalk or Soul Rending for this fight.

Again, not a whole lot you can do on this fight on Demon Hunter. You mostly just want to make sure you swap to the add when it spawns.

Dark Inquisitor Xanesh

Single Target
15
30
45
60
75
90
100

You can use Netherwalk or Soul Rending for this fight.

As a Demon Hunter you can solo the orb mechanic, Void Ritual, but just because you can doesn’t mean you should as there are risks involved.

The Hivemind

AoE and Cleave
15
30
45
60
75
90
100

Use either Trail of Ruin or Fel Barrage depending on timings.

This is essentially a control fight disguised as an aoe fight, so you just want to make sure you swap to the adds that need to be immediately killed.

Shad'har the Insatiable

Single Target
15
30
45
60
75
90
100

As this is a fully single target fight with a short enrage timer, you will only get 2 uses of Metamorphosis, so you just want to time it the best you can with trinkets or something that allows you to dodge a mechanic.

Drest'agath

Spread Out Cleave
15
30
45
60
75
90
100

Not a whole lot you can do on this fight, you just want to make sure you can get up Chaos Brand on every target that you are killing at the time.

You will want to have your cooldowns for when you get a Void Infused Ichor so you deal the most damage possible to the boss. Preferably this happens with Bloodlust but you don’t want to lose a use of Metamorphosis.

Il'gynoth

Single Target / AoE
15
30
45
60
75
90
100

Using your cooldowns while Il’gynoth is alive and not in the organ phase is likely not as good as having them for the organ phase. This depends on if you are trying to skip a deadly ability combo however.

On the last testings of this boss, you could use Metamorphosis to get in to the middle of the boss area, it remains to be seen if you will be able to do this on live. If you can do this it is extremely useful as you can bait the lasers in to the middle instead of around the room taking up space from everybody else in your raid.

Vexiona

Heavy Cleave
15
30
45
60
75
90
100

You will want to end up playing a piece with the Revolving Blades azerite trait as it gains the most value on fights like this.

Ra-den the Despoiled

Single Target / Cleave
15
30
45
60
75
90
100

You can use Netherwalk to solo Void Collapse or a second stack of Instability Exposure.

Carapace of N'Zoth

15
30
45
60
75
90
100

You can use Fel Rush to get up on the tentacle from any angle immediately after it comes down.

Generally you want to use Throw Glaive to put up Chaos Brand on the far Synthesis Growths in phase 2 of the fight.

N'Zoth the Corruptor

Single Target / Cleave

Quite honestly, we don’t know much about these fights because the testings we did for this boss were quite useless. Be sure to check back after we kill N’zoth for actual tips on how to do this fight.
