Strategy Overview

At least 6 people should harvest the from the spawn location of Thet-em-aua

The pull begins with the entire raid stacked up at location "1" listed within the picture above. When the MT begins the pull the 2nd offtank needs to grab both An Undead Tormentors and DPS them down as fast as possible.

After both An Undead Tormentors are dead concentrate on Xebnok the Wretched until the groups of An Undead Detonator spawn. They spawn in one of 3 places. Pull the ASAP and blow up these mobs. If An Undead Detonator stay alive too long, then the raid wipes.

Turn and Burn Xebnok the Wretched and Joust the Spinning Fury AE.

Heal Strategy

Curing everything you can is critical for maximum dps. Heal as required and be ready for the tank swap

Also using pungent salts on the people who become permanently stunned and start animating the emote for "I'm not worthy". Have them call out that they have the effects and cure them using the salts.

Pungent salts

Additional concentration / wards should be given to the biggest of the AOE class

Tank Strategy

Xebnok the Wretched has a Knockback so wedge yourself at the bottom of his metal ramp and say at the top of the mobs hate list. The secondary tank should be ready to swap/snap aggro once Overwhelming Intimidation is cast and worn off.

DPS Strategy

Most melee DPS jousts Overwhelming Intimidation and all melee dps jousts Spinning Fury. All range DPS should ensure they do not steal aggro. (Spinning Fury on the raid is a very bad thing) All AOE dps should save large aoe damage spells for the An Undead Detonators. This is crucial for success of this fight.

Special Team Strategy

One person is responsible for pulling the An Undead Detonator from one of the 3 possible spawn areas and dragging them to the base of the raid.

Please keep in mind that EACH An Undead Detonator casts an AOE knockback.
