Wondering how to finish the Prophet Skitra Raid on Mythic Difficulty? Here is how you can overcome it.
One of the most vital parts of playing the old rendition isn’t just hunting for WoW Classic Gold or grinding levels, but rather a huge focus on raids. This is what we will be looking at today, with a short guide on how you can overcome the Prophet Skitra raid on Mythic difficulty. So, if you are looking to challenge yourself in Ny’alotha with an advanced difficulty level, then you will want to keep reading.
When you begin the fight, you will want to attract the boss into the middle of the room. In terms of stacking your attacks, melee should be placed behind the boss, and ranged should be set for around 20-25 yards behind where your melee attacks are coming from. Another tip is to place a marker on both sides of the boss so you can give yourself an idea of where your safety corridor should be, which will be essential for the Images of Absolution where the Prophet creates an army of illusions. There is also the Shred Psyche to contend with, where the boss will attempt to rip at the mind of a random player, causing a psychic outburst. You need to avoid this damage where possible, so make sure that you have a drop point to make way for damage and give yourself time to evade the attack.
In the first phase of the battle, you may notice that only particular players are affected by Images of Absolution, so you need to make sure that you have enough bodies to be able to deal with them in your safety corridor. Crowd control is essential here, so using Mass Entanglement and Ring of Peace will come in handy. There is also Paralysis and Blind which can be useful for single targets.
If you are operating the melee role, then you will want to move to where the ranged stack point is in order to avoid Psychic Outburst, should you not be equipped with any damage reduction cooldown.
If you are using tanks and healers, then the tactics in the second phase will play an important role. Skitra will use Illusionary Projection, so get a tank to put down a world marker in front of them, meaning the other tank will be able to have eyes on the boss. To find the correct projection, you will need to make sure that you have a cut path as Image of Absolution will still be in play in this secondary phase too.
There are a few tactics that you should know about depending on what kind of character you are playing as. If you are DPS focused, then you have the chance to inflict enough damage to force the boss into phase 2 rather quickly if you are powerful enough. By doing so, you will be able to surpass the first phase without having to deal with Images of Absolution, meaning it gives you more control of the surrounding area.
For Healers, be aware that Shred Psyche is going to be one of the key factors between victory and defeat, so there are certain essentials to keep in mind. By using damage reduction raid cooldown, like Power Word: Barrier, Spirit-Link Totem, and Aura Mastery, you can reduce as much damage as possible from the dreaded Psychic Outburst. There is a lot of damage output from Shred Psyche, so this will be especially helpful to you. Tanks meanwhile should look into Shadow Shock, and the tank with the highest stack should also operate with a defensive cooldown of some sort. Nullification Barrier can be very useful too for tanks, since the majority of the damage surrounding this battle is based on Magic.
These tips should serve you well when trying to overcome Prophet Skitra on Mythic. There is a variety of WoW Classic Items and abilities that can come in very handy throughout, and it can be a tough fight. What his raid needs is some precise planning, and you can make such preparations with the tactics found above. Focus on the tips relevant to your character build, make sure to establish a safety corridor, and try to impose the second phase of the boss as quick as you can to get the upper hand in controlling the environment around you. With all of that in mind, you should be able to overcome this Mythic obstacle.
