I mentioned this on the podcast last Saturday, but it bears repeating.
On Blade Lord Ta’yak, in the final phase, you’re playing “Frogger” with a series of tornadoes that come at you in three columns. This happens twice, at 20% then again at 10%. You can avoid the 2nd iteration of this dodging altogether. At about 12% health, jump into the windstream on either side of the main wind tunnel. It will shuttle you down to the other end incredibly quickly, just as the boss is switching sides in the room. While everyone else is running across against the wind, you’ll be happily dps’ing away. It buys you at LEAST 10-15 extra seconds of dps, and potentially more if you’re bad at the tornado dance.
If you know the fight, it’s simple. If you’re confused, it’ll make sense once you’ve done the fight once or twice.
This is not my original idea; others discovered it well before it was relayed to me by a guildie. Still, I hadn’t heard of it, and many others hadn’t either. So it will be relevant advice for many. Enjoy!
