Suggested Raid Set-up

  • 8-11 DPS (Good mix of ranged and melee)

The Fight

Lord Greenscale has 4.1 million health. The tank will want to start by facing Greenscale away from the raid. Melee will want to stack along side of him to avoid tail-swipe. Healers and ranged will want to be loosely stacked along the same side to avoid confusion during the air phase. Lord Greenscale will occasionally spawn plants into the raid. These need to be avoided immediately as soon as they spawn, as they deal 2000 damage per second.

During the air phase, additional plants as well as Lifebound will spawn. These will have the same aggro table as Lord Greenscale when he went into the air. So DPS will have to maintain threat control throughout the encounter. Ideally, the adds will go immediately to the main tank, and they should be moved well away from the raid's Phase 1 positioning. The Mender should be taken out first as it will heal any damage to the other adds. The off-tank should move the Annihilator aside from the raid and move it occasionally while waiting for Greenscale to kill it in order to avoid a plant spawning inside the protective bubble which spawns on the Annihilator's corpse. All raid members should get inside this bubble to mitigate damage from Mortal Extermination.

At 50%, Noxious Bracken will spawn. These should be centered on Greenscale and AoE'd down. At 25%, Sentient Pollen spawn and deal considerable damage to the tank. They also provide a damage buff to Greenscale if they should reach him during the Air Phase, so all DPS need to single-target focus on these and take these down immediately.

From this point, the encounter is rinse and repeat until dead.
