Raid Bosses

Castle Nathria

Legendary: Talbadar’s Stratagem

Notes: Make sure you don’t use your Void Eruption right before the intermission hits, the boss goes immune in the intermission. While the boss is casting the knockback you can still hit him, the knockback also does very low damage so you can just keep on hitting the boss until he goes immune.

Huntsman Altimor

Legendary: Eternal Call to the Void / Talbadar’s Stratagem

Notes: Watch out to not instantly dot the Shades of Bargast. Your group might want to cc them first to stack up a Damage taken debuff.

You can solo Sinseeker casts with Dispersion.

Sun King's Salvation

Legendary: Eternal Call to the Void

Notes: Swap quickly to priority targets called out by your raid leader. It might be tempting to play Searing Nightmare for phase 1, but AoE damage on the small mobs might not be needed for your group. Try to check where your group needs extra damage and swap talents accordingly

Artificer Xy'mox

Legendary: Eternal Call to the Void / Talbadar’s Stratagem

Notes: You can use leap of faith to save your friends from Edge of Annihilation or Fleeting Spirits if they’re caught out of position.

Keep an eye on the timers for ghosts, seeds and traps when casting Void Torrent, you don’t want to have to interrupt the cast because the mechanic is cast on you.

Hungering Destroyer

Legendary: Eternal Call to the Void / Talbadar’s Stratagem

Notes: You can swap to Twist of Fate if your group needs more boss damage. Or use Misery and/or Shadow Crash if your group needs more add damage.

The Council of Blood

Single Target

50

Legendary: Eternal Call to the Void

Notes: Swap to the Dutiful Attendants quickly. Once they reach the bosses they channel an immunity on the bosses. You can dot them up and cast Void Torrent on them to finish them quickly, try to avoid casting Devouring Plague on them because they will probably die before the dot runs out.

If a Dreadbolt Volley interrupt is missed, you can mass dispel to help out your healers.

Sludgefist

Legendary: Talbadar’s Stratagem / Twins of the Sun Priestess

Notes: When the boss charges a pillar he will receive a debuff that temporarily increases his damage taken by 100%. It is worth delaying Void Torrent casts for this. If you have taken the Necrolord or Venthyr covenant you should also line up your covenant ability with the 100% damage taken increase. Delay your shadowfiend until the first pillar.

Stone Legion Generals

Stacked Cleave

Legendary: Eternal Call to the Void / Talbadar’s Stratagem

Notes: Don’t use your voidform in the intermission, the add will probably die quick and there will be nothing to dps. Use your voidform + PI together on pull and after each intermission.

Sire Denathrius

Cleave

50

Legendary: Eternal Call to the Void / Talbadar’s Stratagem

Notes: Make sure you keep dots up on Sire Denathrius and Remornia throughout the fight while swapping to priority targets called out by your raid leader. Watch the timers for the grips and knockbacks so it doesn’t interrupt your Void Torrent casts.

If your group requires more damage on Echo of Sin in Phase 1 then you can swap to Shadow Cash.
