Iron Qon

Tanks: Tank swap whenever Impale debuff gets too high. Dodge tornadoes.

Heals: Run away from all the tornadoes, don't stand in any of the ground hazards. Heal AOE from Fist Smash in the last phase.

Dps: You're supposed to stack up during phase one so he doesn't wipe the raid when he reaches 100 energy with Molten Overload, but I didn't see this happen. Run from all tornadoes, don't stand in any of the ground hazards. Keep dpsing whichever quilen he's on, bloodlust when he's on foot.

Twin Consort

There are 4 celestial statutes in the room, clicking on them and then tracing their sign on the floor by running across the the stars will buff the raid in different ways.

Tiger - Slows down boss attacks
Crane - Damages boss
Serpent - Grants health and mana regen
Ox - Gives health bonus

Tanks: During Lu'lin's phase one tank will have the boss and the other will tank fight a beast of nightmare. The tank being focused by the beast must kill it on his own, and receive minimal healing due to Corrupted Healing applied on healers who heal the beast tank. Tank swap on Suen when it Fan of Flames stacks to two. Tank Suen next to Ice Comets to lower her Blazing Radiance.

Heals: The tank being focused by the beast of nightmare must kill it on his own, and receive minimal healing due to Corrupted Healing applied on healers who heal the beast tank. Don't stand by Moon Lotus, they release green spores that will put you to sleep. Spread out during night phase to decrease damage from Cosmic Barrage.

Dps: Don't stand by Moon Lotus, they release green spores that will put you to sleep. Spread out during night phase to decrease damage from Cosmic Barrage. Have a Dps that knows how to trace the celestials activate the crane right away, Lu'lin should die in the first phase with the help of the crane. Bloodlust when she dies and Suen appears.

Lei Shen

The platform is split in 4 quadrants.

North conduit is Static Shock
East Conduit is Diffusion Chain.
South Conduit is Overcharged.
West Conduit is Bouncing Bolt.

Tanks: Drag him to each conductor but do not let the conduits go over 99 power. Tank swap on Decapitate in phase 1, Fusion Slash in phase 2, and Overwhelming Power in phase 3. Stack on players that are debuffed with Static Shock and Overcharged when you can. Jump over Overcharged waves when you can't stand on it to avoid the stun. Don't stand in Crashing Thunder, the farther away from Thunderstruck you are, the less damage you'll take from it. Pick up adds if you're not tanking, go stand in swirly blue circles to catch the balls, this will stop adds from spawning from Bouncing Bolt. Decide which conduit to disable first, I recommend diffusion, the one with the highest charge will become overloaded and no longer grant an ability after the transition phase. Don't fall off the platform in phase 3. Do not stand on overloaded platforms.

Heals: Stack on players that are debuffed with Static Shock and Overcharged when you can. Jump over Overcharged waves when you can't stand on it to avoid the stun. Don't stand in Crashing Thunder, the farther away from Thunderstruck you are, the less damage you'll take from it. Go stand in swirly blue circles to catch the balls, this will stop adds from spawning from Bouncing Bolt. During the transition phase spread out among the four quadrants and deal with each conduit's ability, CATCH THE BALLS BY STANDING IN THE SWIRLING CIRCLES. Whenever you're near the diffusion conduit, make sure to spread out at least 10 yards, each person that's hit by Diffusion Chain spawns an add. Do not stand on overloaded platforms.

Priority is always Adds>Boss. Bloodlust when two conduits are overloaded.
