Once we knew Varimathras as that dreadlord guy who stood next to Sylvanas in the undercity. We then killed him during the invasion of the undercity scenario in the Wrath of the lich king expansion. Here in antorus we meet him again being tormented, gimp mask and all. The fight closely resembles a patchwork style fight with minimal movement and no adds. The main mechanic is misery which prevents you from receiving any healing for 7 seconds. Any shadow dmg taken will proc this effect so limiting any avoidable shadow damage is the recipe to counter this fight. We benefited from tanks being used to the standing side by side but within 8 yards to deal with the additional cone mechanic on heroic. Most issues we had was with dealing with the necrotic embrace, a dot which after 6 seconds explodes in a 10-yard radius for shadow dmg. Moving out of the raid but not too soon (as this would increase your misery duration) got some getting used to. We had individual deaths and misery spread through the raid like a plague but once we got the hang of it we made quick work of Varimathras.
