Malkorok Raid Strategy Guide (incl Heroic)

Malkorok Detailed Strategy Guide (incl Heroic) for Healers

Malkorok is the ninth boss in Siege of Orgrimmar.

Displaced Energy requires raiders to run out of the raid group, with a 8 yard range from other players.  It does significant damage, but once the players have moved out safely, they can be dispelled (it will do an AOE damage to players within 8 yards when it expires or is dispelled).

Players will have a shield on them (similar idea to the shells on Heroic Tortos) that will absorb up to 100% of maximum health when full.

Imploding Energy tears will appear throughout the fight which requires at least one player to stand in, with full shields the damage should be completely absorbed.  However, if one isn’t soaked, it does 510k damage to every raid member.

The boss periodically slams a cone area in the room, which causes 500k damage.  You can move out of it, but healers should be quick to heal up slowpokes.  Raid markers should be placed on the ground where each slam appears, as he will then do a Breath of Y’Shaarj, which will one shot all raid members who are standing where those slams had happened.  Once breath occurs, reset marks for the next set of slams.

You will HAVE to have the 3 different shields added to your raid frames, so you  can see what level of shield each

Heroic Mode

Displaced Energy also roots the player, so it is up to other raid members to ensure they are more than 8 yards away when it expires or is dispelled.
