Hellfire Citadel - Tyrant Velhari

Please use this thread to discuss the Tyrant Velhari encounter in Hellfire Citadel. As always, please specify raid difficulty when discussing strats - a Heroic tactic may be completely unfeasible in Mythic.

Pretty straight forward DPS wise.

Most important things to remember is that you can spawn 2 fire pools from tempest before needing to move I use This simple Weak Aurawhich displays 2 timers, when the first disappears I move out of the first 2 stacked blazes, and then move again when the second timer disappears.

You also should move out of the font of corruption stack location 3 seconds before it falls off so you don't get hit by everyone's cleave.

I was able to parse very high on our first heroic Tyrant kill because the fight lasted for 6 min 30s, which meant I got a final set of cooldowns in her p3 burn phase while she takes an additional 100%+ damage. However, once you have her on farm, she'll drop to around a 5 minute kill, which means you'll have to decide between playing the fight correctly (cooldowns during p2 to beat soft enrage) or playing to parse (save 3 min cooldowns for end of p3). Another fight where padding =/= playing correctly.

Yay for private logs :^)

one thing my guild realized after we killed her was that the Crushing Shadows ability is only cast on tanks, so the 5 yard aoe corrupted blast only triggers on tanks and people with Font of Corruption. So feel free to stack up in melee for that phase

We killed him with 11 melee DPS IIRC. Each of us plus the tanks got assigned a position on a clock face to deal with the Tempest, except for me who was told "just figure it out" so I just heroic leaped out to the middle of nowhere every time (could substitute Displacer Beast obviosuly if you find yourself stuck with this issue) :P The fight is really not hard at all as melee if everyone realizes you're not supposed to run around like a chicken with its head cut off and you won't necessarily get to stay in melee for the whole thing. On mythic you'll probably want to be a bit melee light just for the sake of maximizing DPS but I doubt it matters that much.
