General Raiding Tips
Learn to use
and use it often. Plan ahead where you will be putting it and what you're going to use it for. Some bosses can be reset by using
to teleport out of the boss area after taunting the boss.
My Personal Kill Vids/Commentary
Touch of Karma
defensively until you're comfortable enough with the fight to use it offensively.

General Talent Build
For more information on filling in the blanks or when to use different talents, see my talent guides on
Tomb of Sargeras
Single target encounter with some movement.
Use all the movement abilities that Windwalker has available to stay on the boss as much as possible.
Same as lower difficulties, everything hits harder, so use defensive and movement abilities to stay alive and on target.
Mostly single target and some cleave.
Watch your Torment bar so you can plan your cooldowns around needing to go into the latern.
Touch of Karma
on a target that will become unattackable before its over, you will get Torment from
Touch of Karma
Beg your tanks to bring them back together when both are attackable.
Be careful of adds about to die, they will explode.
Level 100 talent depends on how long the adds are up for based on your raid's comp, skill, and difficulty.
If adds stay alive for awhile, stack up
Mark of the Crane
, if not then try to hit as many as you can with
Fists of Fury
Touch of Karma
should be used to help soak the cleave damage.
If adds are dying very quickly, don't get stuck trying to "pad" on them and miss out on damage by doing it.
Save cooldowns for after the eggs get hit and take increased damage.
If you're lucky enough to be able to DPS the many adds that spawn from eggs, then do so. If you're not, then its essentially a single target boss.
Pay attention to when you're standing in the puddles dropped by the Eels dying, don't waste big damage abilities while standing here only to see them miss.
Windwalkers have lots of movement abilities to deal with the variety of mechanics, use them all.
Focus on the mechanics
Don't scumbag on the adds if its not your job. Eels are about dying at the right time, not as quickly as possible.
Have cooldowns available for Moontalon spawns. Otherwise a single target boss
Use all the movement abilities in the kit to stay alive and stay on boss.
Prydaz, Xavaric's Magnum Opus
, thank me later.
Mostly a single target/cleave encounter.
Ask to "go down" into the spirit realm.
Help interrupt when the Priestesses can be interrupt.
Watch your cleave when Priestesses are needed to stay alive.
Don't waste resources on AOE when adds have Bone Shield.
Almost entirely a single target fight with some cleave.
Take advantage of cleave and AOE situations to pump up your numbers.
Don't get greedy with orbs. If you can't do it perfectly, don't do it at all.
Know your color!!
Seriously, don't be greedy.
No really, know your color.
Don't touch the Maiden unless the shield is up.
Use all the movement abilities and defensives to stay alive and avoid mechanics.
Avoid taking damage.
Mostly single target with some priority adds.
is your best friend from the knockbacks and to get back to Illidan during the Darkness phase.
during the intermediate phases when KJ isn't attackable, but not at the cost of taking unneeded damage.
When he starts to fly up, he takes reduced damage. Use this as a chance to generate resources to use when he returns to ground.
If you're here, you should know what to do.
