    Default RD final boss question

    So ran RD for first time since Vanilla. We wiped over and over until the healer quit and then the tank did. I am trying to find out what mechanic we were missing. I got that we couldnt hit him during the glacial shield or we died, but there seemed to be more to it than that. Any thoughts what we were missing. It was an easy clear until that boss.

    Cursed Wave - line of sight it
    Those that can, do. Those that can't, write guides on the forums.

    really depends on your healer / tank setup.

    If you have a chloro healer, you need them to respec into 6 points necro so they can purge the glacial shield. 6 seconds wtihout hitting / healing the boss makes things hard for a chloro.

    As a tank, you need to keep him faced away otherwise the DPS get debuffed with.... some watery looking thing. Uncleansable dot that destroys people.

    Edit: Yeah Line of Sight Cursed Wave. Thought that was a given sorry

    Clerics can reflect Necrotic Jet somehow too but I haven't figured out how.

    Thanks for the advise. I knew we were missing something, annoying that everyone quit before figuring it out. To me thats part of the fun, figuring out the fights.

    By the way if you are not a chloro healer, there is a trick spot on corner which you can line of sight bos for all fight and keep healing tank.
    RemoveBuff a simple addon for replacing cancelbuff command.

    Tank boss where he stands (more or less), have (ranged) dps and healer stand at max range. If the boss casts his shield AND the tank gets debuffed right after that, only then will he cast Cursed Wave, which the group (except for the tank) has to LoS.

    Other than that, having a heal support makes this fight a lot easier. (:

    Even as a chloro, just spam natural healing
