Planebreaker Abominus Strategy/Guide

Full credit goes to Ayona of <Addiction>, she wrote up this guide on her own and allowed me to post it verbatim onto here. I did not write this guide nor will I maintain this guide post-nerfs, so if someone wishes to do so…go ahead and do it, although if you have questions I can probably answer them in the comments.

Phase 1 has been completely changed, so this is out of date, but all of the mechanics are still there.

Introduction
I will be going in depth describing all of the mechanics ranging from the long and tedius first phase all the way to the exciting and intensive grand finale of this amazing encounter. Each mini-boss will have a phase 1 and phase 2 section in this guide, explaining each of their mechanics per phase. Additionally, there will be a seperate section for Planebreaker Abominus’ mechanics as well.

List of Mechanics for Zor’zyx, Tor’krik, and Ix’ior (phase 1 and 2)
Lithic Ablation: An uninterruptable spell casted by Zor’zyx. He casts this spell in both phase 1 and phase 2.…

41 Warlord / 35 Paladin / 0 Void Knight Guide (PvE Tank Hybrid) – 2.8

The Build: 41 Warlord/ 35 Paladin/ 0 Tempest (or 0 VK, use what you see fit to)

NOTE
The soul trees and some tooltips on Riftscene are NOT accurate. The point spread IS accurate, just copy it over and you will be running the right build, the tooltips are simply wrong.

This is a hybrid of Warlord and Paladin, resulting in some absolutely ridiculous DPS numbers, with a very noticeable difference in HP and mitigation. Do NOT use this spec unless you are overgeared and have confident healers as you will die, guaranteed. I average about 15k DPS on single target boss fights in expert pugs with this spec without a Warlord crystal, which would only add more. My greatest accomplishment with this spec so far is 18.6k DPS while tanking Goloch, but I could probably break 25k now given the opportunity.

This spec works best with Stormlord’s Flatblade, or more preferably Death’s Final Defeat, or 2x tank 1 handers and the Warlord synergy crystal. It will only work well on fights where you can block a lot of the attacks (ie fights like Matriarch and Regulos it will be useless).…

61 Riftblade Guide – 2.8
This is easier to play than Paragon and pulls similar numbers. It relies on AP rather than crit and CP. I'd like to give thanks to Steelwind from the forums for writing the initial guide which taught me how to play this spec that lead me to write it for this site. The Build: [rift-build link="218"]61 Riftblade/ 15 Tempest/ 0 Paragon[/rift-build]

61 Tempest Guide – 2.2
This is the Warrior's ranged DPS spec. It's dps is lower than both Paragon and Riftblade, but is safer due to the range. I'd like to give thanks to Steelwind from the forums for writing the initial guide which taught me how to play this spec that lead me to write it for this site. The Build: [rift-build link="219"]61 Tempest/ 10 Riftblade/ 5 Paragon[/rift-build]

Paladin Tank Guide – 2.8

The Build: 61 Paladin / 15 Reaver / 0 Void Knight

NOTE
The soul trees and some tooltips on Riftscene are NOT accurate. The point spread IS accurate, just copy it over and you will be running the right build, the tooltips are simply wrong.

This is the #1 physical mitigation spec, although very boring, yet easy to play.

Cooldowns:

  • Touch of Life : Instant OGCD full heal
  • Life's Rapture : Instant OGCD raid full heal over 6 seconds and 10% mitigation. It heals 100% of your health instantly and heals your raid over 6 seconds. 1:30 CD (OGCD). Be VERY careful when using this, as it is extremely powerful and has a massive threat modifier. You will pull agro instantaneously on ANYTHING you are not currently the main target of…however this ability being so powerful can easily prevent a raid wipe, but also cause them.
