Heroic Elegon is very similar to normal mode. In fact, if you can clear normal without anyone dying then you should give heroic a try.
Also known as “Four Kings”, in Mogu’shan Vaults.
Not to be confused with Wind Lord Mel’jarak, even though Blade Lord Ta’yak has three abilities and a whole phase related to wind. This fight requires good positioning and timer-watching for the damage dealers and healers, and tests a tank’s ability to use active mitigation at predictable intervals.
This fight isn’t all that different from normal mode. The mechanics are mostly the same, you just have to handle more damage. Most of your wipes will likely be the result of your damage dealers failing to clear out the shadow adds near the end or due to the enrage timer.
Here is the next narrated guide for Heroic Mogu’shan Vaults: Feng the Accursed! I’ve written out most of the stuff I mention in the video, but I elaborated more on some things.
Here it is, my first complete heroic tanking guide in eight months. I have some brewmaster-specific advice, but most of it is about taunting strategy. Also, for the first time since Ragnaros, this is a narrated tanking guide.
