Dark Inquisitor Xanesh
This is a single phase encounter where the core mechanics of the fight are handled by set members of the raid. However, how you position the boss is vital for this mechanic.
During this encounter you will observe Azshara who is trapped in the centre of the room and the boss Dark Inquisitor Xanesh.
Anguish - This is low ticking shadow damage which deals damage for the entire encounter, it is unavoidable.
Torment - This is cast on Azshara by Xanesh which will then make Azshara erupt with Void energy.
There will be 3 pulses of void energy in total, for this the room will be divided into 8 segments.
Alternate segments of the room will be filled with Void for pulses 1 and 2, and for pulse 3 only 2 segments (which are directly opposite each other) will be free of the void energy. You can see this in action below.
Void Ritual - This is the main mechanic of the fight. 3 eyes will spawn on the floor, one directly behind the boss and one either side.
Ideally you want to complete the Void Orb run with as few interactions as possible to maximise boss damage.
Summon Ritual Obelisk - The amount of Obelisks spawned is increased significantly and has set patterns to follow. Unfortunately not many groups on testing got very far, so this section of the guide will be updated once this has gone live. Linked is an example of the first Obelisk pattern on Mythic.
