Home / Onyxia's Lair
Location: Duskwallow Marsh Level 60 40 Player Limit Onyxia is the daughter of the mighty dragon Deathwing, and sister of the scheming Nefarion Lord of Blackrock Spire. It is said that Onyxia delights in corrupting the mortal races by meddling in their political affairs. To this end it is believed that she takes on various humanoid forms and uses her charm and power to influence delicate matters between the different races. Some believe that Onyxia has even assumed an alias once used by her father - the title of the royal House Prestor. When not meddling in mortal concerns, Onyxia resides in a fiery cave below the Dragonmurk, a dismal swamp located within Dustwallow Marsh. There she is guarded by her kin, the remaining members of the insidious Black Dragon Flight. "Trash" Mobs: Before you reach the dragon herself, you will find your raid faced with Onyxian warders. The secret to these guys is having no melee DPS on them, as they send out a fire nova hitting anyone in range for a few thousand fire damage. Ranged-only, and they're easy as Pi.

[LI]Flame Breath: A frontal cone AoE that hits for a considerable amount of fire damage. It is imperative that the raid is not hit by this, as it is a big raid-wiper.[/LI]
[LI]Knockback: Onyxia will knock back anyone in front of her (this should only be the main tank). The tanks needs to be positioned correctly so that when he is knocked back, he bounced right back into the same place.[/LI]
[LI]Tail Whip: Anyone standing behind her will find themselves hit with her tail for a small amount of damage, but sent flying far into the air (and often the whelps).[/LI]
[LI]Engulfing Flames: In Phase 2 (where she flies into the air), she will spit fireballs at random people, with splash damage. These usually aren't going to kill someone, so first aid should be enough to counter these.[/LI]
[LI]Deep Breath: At some point in phase 2, she will use her deep breath ability. Everyone needs to move to the sides, as anyone in the middle will be breathed on. Make sure to spread out, since some people on the sides will be breathed on indefinitely.[/LI]
[LI]AoE Fear: During phase 3 (when she lands), she will use an AoE fear. Right before she fears, the ground will rumble giving everyone a little warning (just a second or two). After she fears, little bits of fire shoot up from the ground, damaging anyone who is running around on the floor.[/LI]
