SPIRIT VALE

Luckily for us, the hard working people at Dulfy have put together some pretty detailed guides for all 3 boss encounters in the Spirit Vale raid wing and while I do not necessarily agree with everything in the guide, it is a fantastic resource for inexperienced raiders and a valuable asset to have read before attempting to raid. If nothing else, the guides will give you some idea of what to expect so you're not caught completely off-guard and may even help the "experienced" raiders among you to clear up any misconceptions.

1. Vale Guardian

2. Gorseval The Multifarious

3. Sabetha The Saboteur

STRONGHOLD OF THE FAITHFUL

Since Dulfy has already released guides for the final wing of Forsaken Thicket, this section of the guide will simply provide the appropriate links to her website. I will, however, comment briefly on each encounter and touch on strategies that myself and my guild have found to be effective but be sure to have either read her guides or experienced the encounter first as I will not explain any of the terminology.

You can watch DnT clear all 3 encounters at the following link.


ADDITIONAL TIPS

Some players may benefit from the following 3rd party programs/websites. The first is a damage-per-second meter that monitors your damage output and may be useful for players looking to improve their rotations and the second is an overlay that some find helpful for orientating themselves when things get chaotic. Neither program is necessary and you should not feel obliged to make use of them but if you are the type of player who enjoys the aid of such programs, then you should probably give them a go! The loop countdown timer is very useful for predicting recurring mechanics such as the green skull AoEs during the Slothasor encounter.

Happy raiding, everybody!

Looks cool but we don't really go for the middle strategy. I find it a bit needlessly risky tbh.
