This guide is intended to provide a comprehensive description of theencounter with Yor'sahj the Unsleeping in Dragon Soul. It is mostly targeted to tankswho desire to have a short but detailed overview of what is expected ofthem during that fight.
This guide applies to patch 4.3 of World of Warcraft.
The Yor'sahj the Unsleeping encounter presents its highest degree ofdifficulty to the raid leader, who must make certain decisions during thefight. The other roles, including tanks, have a much easier time duringthis fight.
As a tank, you will have to simply tank the boss in the center of theroom for the entire duration of the fight, and possibly perform a tankswap. Additionally, there are a few things you can do to maximise yourperformance.
1. Overview of the Fight↑top
The Yor'sahj encounter is essentially a single phase fight. The encounteris unique, in the sense that Yor'sahj has only one ability, which he casts withregularity.
Additionally, Yor'sahj will regularly summon 3 randomoozes of a different type (out of 6 possible types). Upon reaching the boss,each ooze buffs the boss, granting him a specific ability that lasts 60seconds. When there are about 15 seconds left on his buffs, the boss beginssummoning the next set of 3 oozes.
Your raid can only kill one of the three oozes each time (as soon as onedies, the other two become immune), so you will have to deal with thecombination of the abilities that the two surviving oozes grant the boss.
2. Tanking Yor'sahj↑top
As a tank on the Yor'sahj encounter, you will mostly have to tank the bossin the middle of the room without any further complications. He will damageyou regularly (roughly every 5 seconds) with Void Bolt, which also leavesa stacking Shadow damage DoT (5,000 damage every 2 seconds in 10-man and30,000 in 25-man).
When the boss summons oozes (once every 75 seconds or so), he will moveto the center of the room and he will not need to be tanked (he does not doanything) for 25 seconds. During this time, you can help the raid DPS thedesignated ooze, although this should hardly be necessary.
Because of the high damage from the Void Bolt DoT, in 25-man difficulty,a tank swap is advised (swap at around 4 stacks). In case you are solotanking the boss, you should aim at using a defensive cooldown when yourstacks of the DoT are high.
3. Additional Tasks when Oozes are Up↑top
Yor'sahj will regularly become empowered by two oozes, each granting hima specific ability. While none of them are of great importance for the tank,there are some things you can do for each ooze.
4. Heroic Mode↑top
The main difference between the Normal and Heroic versions of theencounter with Yor'sahj is that your raid will have to kill 1 of 4oozes (instead of 1 of 3), which means that Yor'sahj will be empoweredby 3 oozes.
Other that that, all abilities deal more damage.
As a tank, you will find that the Heroic version of the encounter withYor'sahj is very similar to the Normal version. The damage is harder tosurvive, especially in 25-man difficulty, where the DoT from Void Boltticks for 50,000 damage (up from 30,000).
