Raid Notice

Classes that are able to remove disease are important in this fight. Be on the look out for players that get Decrepit Fever. It should be cleansed immediately. I noticed it occur mostly when switching from Phase 2 back to Phase 1. Ranged DPS and Healers can avoid it by giving Heigan a wide berth when running back to the platform after doing Phase 2. The spell of course does more damage in Heroic mode.

Normal Mode: Decrepit Fever
Heroic Mode: Decrepit Fever

Phase 1

When the fight starts the tank should picking him up. The starting position is Section 1 in the diagram below. The tank and melee DPS should get into position and be prepared to begin the dance sequence. It is important that you Tank Heigan at about the middle of each section. The reason is to keep Heigan far enough from Casters and Healers so that they do not get the Spell Disruption debuff. The tank will need to drag Heigan to each section as he does the dance. Melee DPS of course will be following, and should pay attention to the sections as well so as not to get caught in the lava. The Ranged DPS and Healers should run to the platform when the fight starts.

Phase 2

When Heigan teleports the entire raid (including Ranged DPS and Healers) must run to Section 1 on the floor IMMEDIATELY and be ready to start the dance. The sequence is 1-2-3-4-3-2-1. All you have to do is watch the cracks on the floor where the lava came out and run just a little past that point each time.

The second time you do this, the sequence will last longer and be faster. It will go as follows 1-2-3-4-3-2-1-2...

Below are pictures showing you where the lava comes out. The path I follow is right beside the platform, you can see the edge of it right beside me. The lava will be kind of fast, so be ready and pay attention when you do this.

Now you will turn around and go back the way you just came.

Step 5

Step 6


After the last section drops you should return to the Phase 1 setup. The tank should tank Heigan at Section 1. Ranged DPS and Healing should run back onto the platorm. With a little practice you can do this fight with no deaths and get the achievement.
