Legendary: Shadowflame Prism

Notes: Make sure you don’t use your Void Eruption right before the intermission hits, the boss goes immune during 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. If you’re Night Fae you can use Void Eruption twice per damage phase.

Legendary: Shadowflame Prism

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.

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, you don’t want to be caught out of position if the mechanic is cast on you.

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

Time your Mindbenders so they line up with the add spawns.

The Council of Blood

Legendary: Shadowflame Prism

Notes: Swap to the Dutiful Attendants quickly. Once they reach the bosses they channel an immunity on the bosses, it is usually not worth casting your dots on them because they should die very fast. 

Dot up the far away waiters if Mindblast is on CD and you are not going to cap on insanity. 

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

Legendary: Shadowflame Prism

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. Time your mindbenders so you have it for each pillar phase.

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.
