Hivemind Raid Guide – Normal/Heroic Tek’ris Ka’zir Ny’alotha Boss Guide


Hi! I’m Hazel, and this is a guide to the Hivemind
raid boss in Ny’alotha on Normal and Heroic difficulty. This one’s for the multidotters. In this encounter we’ll be fighting Tek’ris
and Ka’zir as well as a handful of smaller adds. Both bosses are active and doing their mechanics
for the entire fight, but depending on which one is in control things will have a different
flavor. When Tetris is in control, you need to tank
the bosses within 20 yards of each other. Smaller adds will have Void Infusion, getting
more powerful the longer they live. Keep the bosses together and focus on any
high stack adds during Tetris time. When Kazoo is in control, the bosses need
to be more than 20 yards apart. Adds will have Regeneration, giving them a
constant heal when under 20% health. Tank the bosses apart and focus down low-health
adds during Kazoo time. These two bugs are besties, so we will need
to kill them together. You got 10 seconds after one dies to kill
the other one before Dark Reconstitution finishes. Tetris will do a frontal cone called Nullification
Blast. His tank should face him towards a wall. Once he’s started casting he won’t move, so
the tank can then side step out of it. Nobody should ever eat Nullification. He’ll also do Echoing Void, and for that one
just spread out. Now Kazoo is trying to cast Mind Numbing Nova
throughout the fight. Key words should be try, since it can be interrupted. Set up a kick rotation and he should never
get one of those off. He’ll also summon Acidic A’qir bugs to roll
their way through the room. Dodge those, they will explode and it’s not
pretty. Kazoo will buff a drone to make it big, CC
immune and it’ll start casting Volatile Eruption. Everyone needs to swap to and focus down the
empowered add before it finishes it’s cast. Speaking of adds, these Lesser Aqir will be
around throughout the fight, they can be stunned and CC-ed and they always need to die. If you were to wipe, odds are it’s because
you fell behind on adds. Remember that they’ll have either Void Infusion
or Regeneration depending on which boss has Hive Control. Aqir Drones are threat immune and attacking
random targets. Stacking up somewhat as a raid should help
bring them together for cleave. Aqir Darters will be porting around pumping
out raid damage with Psionic Resonance. These are more dangerous than the Drones,
and should be prioritized first. On Normal, that’s the fight. Getting the hang of the kill priority is going
to be key here, since there’s so much going on. Aside from that you’re just dodging mechanics
and stacking to group adds. Not so bad. On Heroic and Higher, there’s a few more things
to deal with. Devouring Frenzy is a burst of raid damage
every time hive control swaps, and it’ll get worse throughout the fight. Save some cooldowns for later ones. Aqir Drones will get Acidic Blood, dropping
poison pools when they die. The pools will despawn after a bit so mostly
just don’t trip on them. Finally, Heroic Tetris gets to empower an
add with Accelerated Evolution. he’ll turn a drone into a tankable Aqir Ravager
that then becomes your top priority. Pick it up and swap to it. So, that is the Hivemind in Ny’alotha! I’ve got more guides on my channel and I also
stream on Twitch if you’re into that sort of thing. Thanks for watching and have a wonderful,
wonderful day. Bye!

  1. Super cool. I expect this might be a battle that 3 tanks are brought to because of that extra evolution in heroic. Looking forward to trying it out!
