Mythic Mechanics

Mythic Fetid has multiple changes that alter how you handle the fight in general.  From a healer perspective, there is only one new mechanic to worry about which is the splashing of Putrid Paroxysm and Malodorous Miasma which applies a stack of either Malodorous Miasma or Putrid Paroxysm (MM if no debuff present, or if MM is present, and PP only if PP is present on the splash recipient).  Malodorous Miasma has a small splash range while Putrid Paroxysm has a very large splash range.  Counter this by having your raid spread out around the room equally spaced with direct travel paths for tanks to avoid getting hit by anyone’s debuffs.

Suggested Talents

Due to the spread nature of the encounter, you will want to take full single target talents for Mythic Fetid Devourer.  You can consider taking APT to potentially save someone stuck in a Rotting Regurgitation.  If you find yourself not needing a lot of tank healing, look to take Echo over ES.

Notable Azerite Traits

Static stat Azerite traits are the best here such as Archive of the Titans, Swirling Sands, or Blightborne InfusionSwelling stream isn’t a bad option, but it has reduced effectiveness due to the likelihood of some bounces of the Lesser Chain Heal being wasted.

Mythic Healing Tips

  • Shamans are very bad on this fight, remove Chain Heal and Healing Rain from your bars for this encounter to reduce accidental presses.
  • Spot heal as best as possible, and use Earth Shield on the tank that is tanking melee swings to get the most healing out of Earth Shield.
  • I’m sorry if you don’t have another healer to play for this encounter.
