Lantern Strategy

This will likely be the more common strategy, as it is a little more forgiving towards mistakes.

Phase 1

Tank the boss in the open on X, with everyone in line with the boss. One player will need to pick up the lantern, and will be responsible for debuffing the raid just before Echoing Screech. This player should not hold the lantern the entire time, just pick it up shortly before Echoing Screech and run over the ranged and the melee groups.

Make sure you get the debuff from the lantern as a tank! You might have to move in close to the melee group when the lantern comes in, as the player carrying it likely will not run all the way up in front of the boss to get the tanks. Just make sure to step into the big red circle when it gets brought into melee. You only need to be in for a second to get the debuff, which gives you sight for the Echoing Shrieks.

 

We will be taunt swapping on every Exsanguinating Bite. Use Celestial Brew for it every time, even if you don’t have any Purified Chi going into it. Note that you can Kyrian Phial the stacks off if you need to, which is good for any hits where you might be low health going into it and need to be healed after taking the hit.

 

When Echoing Screech is cast, melee will move around to the side of the boss, and ranged will just take a few steps to the side and dodge any that come towards them.

When the boss casts Earsplitting Shriek, run behind one of the front two pillars to hide from the cast. The entire raid should pick one pillar to all hide behind, with the lantern player hiding behind the other one, to avoid anyone gaining extra, unnecessary stacks from the lantern.

 

Phase 2

During phase two, stack up within the lantern at the start. Then, the lantern player should throw it just behind the group, so that people can dip in and out of it and manage their own stacks. Try to avoid getting more than 5 stacks in this phase. Remember, you only need to be in the lantern when your debuff is about to fall off. You don’t need to drop your stacks completely to avoid getting more than 5, as long as you only stand in the lantern for a second at a time when your debuff is falling, rather than stacking in it for the whole phase.

 

After the second phase, move the boss to Blue instead of X as it will be the clear side of the room, and repeat.

No-Lantern Strategy

This strategy relies more on positioning, and can both reduce the damage the raid takes and reduce the amount of mechanics you have to deal with as long as everyone is positioned properly.

The lantern will not be used at all in Phase 1, and should be dropped in a safe location.

Phase 1

Tank the boss on Skull, up against the pillar, with the entire raid stacked behind the boss. Ranged can be just a little behind melee so that they don’t have to move when the boss casts Blind Swipe.

We will be taunt swapping on every Exsanguinating Bite. Use Celestial Brew for it every time, even if you don’t have any Purified Chi going into it. Note that you can Kyrian Phial the stacks off if you need to, which is good for any hits where you might be low health going into it and need to be healed after taking the hit.

When the boss casts Echoing Screech, the entire raid will move around the pillar and LoS the shrieks (that they won’t be able to see).

You will continue to use this pillar to LoS the Earsplitting Shriek, after which you can reset back to the original position and repeat.

 

Phase 2

Phase 2 will be exactly the same as the Lantern Strategy, as you must use it for this phase.
