Nighthold - Gul'dan
#1
Gul'dan

This a complex 3 phase encounter

Phase One: The Council of Elders

The raid should be lightly spread during the phase

[Liquid Hellfire] is and orb which targets a players location and will deal heavy damage – this is lessened with distance from the impact

[Fel Efflux] is a channelled ability which deals moderate ticking damage if stood in field effect

[Hand of Gul’dan] summons a meteor which when it impacts will do heavy damage – it will also spawn an add that must be dealt with quickly
Fel Lord Kuraz'mal – summons [Fel Obelisk] under players which deals damage and stuns. He also casts [Shatter Essence] on tanks which deals very high fire damage
D'zorykx the Trapper – periodicly casts [Anguish Spirits] which deal shadow damage. He also casts [Soul Vortex] on the tanks which deals very high stacking damage
Inquisitor Vethriz – casts [Drain] on random players which should be dispelled. He also spawns [Gaze of Vethriz] which channel energy beams. He will also use [Shadowblink] and move locations

The beneficial abilities the raid gets to deal with this are:
Tanks should have the [Resonant Barrier] for Shatter and Soul Harvest
Healers should use the [Scattering Field] to reduce Fire damage taken by the raid
DPS Damage dealers should use [Time Dilation] during DPS CD’s to maximise damage on these mini-bosses

Healers should dispel Drain very quickly

Phase Two: The Ritual of Aman'thul

Continue to avoid [Liquid Hellfire] – these can now become Empowered and leave a patch of burning Fel Fire

[Bonds of Fel] chains a player and dels fire damage. This requires nearby players to collapse onto the shackled player to break the effect – [Scattering Field] is helpful here

[Eye of Gul'dan] spawns must be killed very fast to prevent them from reaching max energy and [Duplicating] and creating more and more them [Time Dilation] is useful here

[Hand of Gul’dan] will now summons a Dreadlord – these adds cast [Carrion Swarm] which can be interrupted but in doing so will give them a stacking 20% buff - this is on heroic difficulty

[Fel Scythe] is cast when a players is within 2 yards of the current tank – this effectly expends all his current fel engery as fire damage split between the 2 target which increase in potency by 5% per point expended
If he reaches 100% energy then he’l cast [Fel Scythe] on his primary target
Every case of [Fel Scythe] he will gain [Fury of the Fel] which increases his attack speed by 15% for 10 seconds

Phase Three: The Master's Power

The [Eye of Gul’dan] is now empowered which deals higher fire damage – same effect as P2 and must be killed before they Duplicate

[Storm of the Destroyer] deals very high which increases as it grows in size – the raid has to get out of this very quickly – it starts at 10yard and increases 20yrds, 30yrds & 60yrds

[Well of Souls] requires players to take turns soaking [Soul Corruption] so as to minimize raid wide damage from [Black Harvest]
[Souls Siphon] is a healing absorb debuff
Healer CD’s will be needed for this stage

Move away from players affected by [Flames of Sargeras] as this does heavy damage leaving [Desolate Ground] AoE patch

Heroic

Everything will deal significantly more damage so avoid all unnecessary damage


Phase 1
Mini-bosses each gain an new ability:
Fel Lord Kuraz'mal - summons several patches which will erupt into [Fel Obelisks]. These stun players if hit and deal ticking damage. Just move out of the zone before they appear
Inquisitor Vethriz - casts [Drain] on multiple players. This will heal him for each tick of damage – healers need to dispel this very quickly
D'zorykx the Trapper – casts [Anguished Spirits] which will land on the ground and explode dealing damage. Just move out of the landing zone

Phase 2
[Hand of Gul'dan] will now summon an additional add called a Dreadlord
Dreadlord is picked up by the tank and is the primary DPS target – use Time Dilation to max DPS on the add
Dreadlord will cast [Carrion Wave] – this will deal high shadow damage and cause player to sleep for 5 seconds if hit. This can and should be interrupted but doing so will give the add a stacking buff that will give it a 25% increased speed & damage. This is the main reason it should die very quickly

Phase 3
There are more [Flame of Sargeras] debuffs now and care needs to be taken in placing the flame patches so as not to limit the raid movement
