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 Kormrok mythic. We will not cover all the mechanics.
Talent and glyph choices:
Level 60: Echo of the Elements. Echo is preferred on this encounter since Spirit Link will perform extremely well when the group is affected by Grasping Hands. Not only because of the damage reduction it provides, but also because of its ability to even out people’s health and heal them up subsequently. Double charges of Spirit Link are easily used effectively. You can expect to be able to use it on the first, second, and then again fourth set of hands.
If you are able to use Healing Tide with legendary ring on the first Pound, you will have shields up for the first Grasping Hands. Using Spirit Link is still recommended in this scenario. Much like Iron Reaver, it’s the ‘Pound‘ where you arrange your cooldowns as a healer team (Healing Tide and Ascendance). The Grasping Hands will be sorted with Spirit Links, Barriers and Devotion Aura.
Ascendance can also be used while dodging the Fel Outpouring to aid in keeping people alive if there not as comfortable with dodging the waves. Although this is mostly a remedy and not a wishful situation.
If you have used Healing Tide on the first Pound, it will most likely be back up for the fifth Pound. This is where you have to dodge Fel Outpouring from three directions and deal with Pound at the same time. Once the raid dps increases after the first kills, you are not likely to see this part of the fight anymore.
In the end it will differ per group, the order of the pools and how your healing officer or raid leader will assign the cooldowns.
Most groups use ‘Exorcus Raid Tools’ to assign you a specific spot to soak the splash the boss causes when he Leaps. Make sure you know where you are going, so you can watch the timer, anticipate the Leap and not miss your soak spot.
The group can assign a healer to top the people up that trigger the runes. Use Healing Surges to quickly top them off. You can expect this to raise your overall HPS since others won’t be taking much damage at this point. In case no one is assigned as a designated healer, try anticipating the runes and the incoming damage on the people that trigger. If needed, do not hesistate to trigger a rune yourself (make sure to face the middle), and just pop your defensive to soften the hit.
