Vortex Smelts Opulence! (4/9M)
« on: March 10, 2019, 06:52:02 PM »


Hello Vortex!

After trying out a few different strats, and an extra week of farm bosses we claimed our kill on Opulence.

Opulence requires the raid to split into two even groups, one to take out In'zashi (on the left), and to take out Yalat (on the right.) Both golems have very similar mechanics. Each golem has it's own health pool, so you need to dps each one down the same. Each room the golems occupy have some trap you have to deal with, and at every 10% they move to the next room. In one of the rooms the raid gets the opportunity to steal some gems to increase the damage done to the boss. The gems we primarily take advantage of are the ruby, which leaves a stacking debuff on the boss that increases damage done, and Amethyst which applies a buff on our raiders that reduce incoming shadow damage by 90%. Any dps who don't have the privilege of providing the ruby buff take Opal which increases the damage they deal for each add they hit. Tanks take a diamond, which applies a shield buff and further reduces the damage they take.

Once you start fighting Opulence the key things to watch out for are Liquid gold, and Coin Shower. liquid gold needs to be moved as far from the boss and spawn of the adds as possible. if an add gets in a liquid gold puddle, they start healing and moving much faster. Coin shower is a physical damage attack that goes on a player and splits damage for anyone in 7 yards of the target, this was easily manageable with our plethora of immunities, and paladins with BoP, just needed to make sure no one was within 7 yards of the person using the immunity, or they would get squashed.

Have our eyes set on Conclave, and with minimal changes from Heroic to Mythic, should be expecting fewer pulls for a kill.
