Since this guide was written quite a while ago, we recently did an update article. Interested in what changed? You can find it right here!
Notice: we only highlight the resto shaman perspective of Gorefiend mythic. We will not cover all the mechanics.
Level 60: Echo of the Elements or Ancestral Swiftness. If you use both charges during the first feast, only one Spirit Link Totem will be up for the second feast with Echo of the Elements. Therefore, you can maximize output more with Ancestral Swiftness. Running with Echo of the Elements won’t save you from wiping mechanics. However, your raid leader / healing officer might still ask for it as a double cooldown during the first or second feast.
Regardless, having two Spirit Link Totems is incredibly strong on this fight during the Feast of Souls phases. It will make the health drop happen evenly and no one will suddenly die to a spike. Having more charges on Riptide and Unleash Life will also benefit you inside the stomach. So there is plenty of reason to run with Echo of the Elements.
Keehn: ‘I can understand this being an odd one, but we had a lot of trouble with adds getting out of hand outside the stomach. Unleashed Fury will add a ton of healing to the adds inside the stomach, making you able to nearly solo heal them, relieving some of the pressure on the dps outside. If you struggle with mana or aren’t “gutsy” enough, stick with Elemental Blast. This situation probably won’t occur anymore with the current gear levels.’
The ideal moment for a Draenic Channeled Mana Potion is right after the Feast of Souls. Watch the timers: channel the potion in between the Crushing Darkness and the Touch of doom so you don’t end up having to break the channel prematurely.
You should save ALL your cooldowns for when the boss enters the Feast of Souls phase. It will be very healing intensive and your raid leader / healer officer will assign the cooldowns. It is crucial that the raid has a cooldowns up continuously, and overlap is minimal.
Spiritwalker’s Grace is great for moving to the Shared Fate target, when you’re about to be ported in with Shadow of Death, or if you get Touch of Doom – consider using the Glyph of Spiritwalker’s Focus if you aren’t using that already. If you have Spiritwalker’s Grace available during Feast of Souls, you can use it while you have to soak your assigned Unstable Soul.
When you are hit with Shadow of Death, run to your designated spot and pre-cast a Riptide followed by an Unleash Life to make sure you get a super strong heal off on the first spirit. This is super powerful when used with Unleashed Fury (talent).
Stay somewhat centered, so you have a greater range of healing people up. This will also make you have to run less far to get out of Shared Fate.
Dorelei: ‘As a resto shaman, your job is to heal the Feasts of Souls and the adds inside the stomach. During the normal time upstairs, its your time to regain mana a little bit.’
Dunderz: ‘Don’t feel like you have to be mana efficient inside/downstairs, just spam. The travel time in and out will even out your mana. Also, prioritize the essences on 0% to activate your mastery to the fullest.’
Dorelei: ‘Once an add is above 80%, prioritize low hp essences instead of getting them to 100% (if you have to choose). The DPS will be able to get them down almost instantly’.
