Melee tank strategy (Normal)
Omor is mostly a tank-and-spank fight, with a few variations. Before you begin, clear the two guards in front of him separately (they are not linked to Omor and can be pulled without chaining the boss), then when the party is ready have your tank go in and build some aggro.
Space out to avoid damage from his curse Treacherous Aura which should be removed if possible. Failing that, pay attention to the cursed person and keep them away from other players and let the curse wear off. The room where you fight Omor is circular. If you have ranged DPS, characters can stay at range from Omor and away from one another by making corners (2 in front and 2 in back) with the tank on him. This will avoid the affects of being cursed but may require an off healer for the two in the back.
Make sure the felhounds are dealt with quickly, as their draining abilities are quite potent. They can become problematic if they run free, in a fight where players are split up to various degrees. Easy to nuke down and warlocks are particularly valuable here as they can single handedly deal with both adds. The felhounds are nonelite and any melee dps can make quick work of them.
Omor doesn't always use his Shadow Whip ability on his highest aggro target, so the only one to suffer from it should generally be melee dps. Maneuver yourself over Omor, so that you can rejoin the fight immediately on landing.
- Note - Warriors that get launched into the air by this ability, can use intercept while falling back down to quickly engage Omor again and avoid taking any falling damage.
- Note - Druids of any specialty can switch to Cat Form to reduce fall damage, although feral druids tanking should be very quick to resume Dire Bear Form or just use their Feral Charge ability if talented for it.
Melee tank strategy (Heroic)
The strategy for Heroic difficulty is very similar to the one for Normal difficulty.
High shadow resist (over 200) negates most all of the damage of this boss. If your people are geared up with high shadow resistances, this boss is relatively easy for a heroic mode boss.
Omor's AoE debuff is now much stronger, and can no longer be dispelled.
The problem with the Bane of Treachery debuff is if it is placed on a melee fighting the boss, it will harm all other melee nearby—a rogue with the aura can do the 5,000 damage to the tank every 2 seconds, if on the tank, the melee will take this, etc. With respect to the adds, if the healer gets the aura and a melee goes to get the adds attacking the healer, that melee will take the damage.
It's simple enough to avoid problems with Bane, as you can time it and control it. As the fight begins and players are spreading out there will be a ten-second grace before the 1st Bane. Melee DPS should wait to see who gets the first Bane before running into the boss. If one person on melee DPS gets Bane, he should wait its duration out on the sides. If the tank gets Bane, all melee DPS should wait on the sides. As Bane reaches the end of its duration (15 seconds), all melee DPS should return to their original spread out positions until Bane has been placed on a new target. If melee are next to each other when Omor gives the debuff, they will almost certainly NOT be able to get away from each other in time.
The Fel Hounds will now pose an additional threat to mana users; so it's even more important to control/eliminate them quickly. They may not despawn immediately when the boss dies. On heroic, they are still vulnerable to crowd control like Ice Trap, Banish, Enslave and Fear.
This fight is a cinch if you appropriately spread out to deal with the Bane of Treachery debuff and have a warlock or a quick main tank to deal with the Felhounds.
Strategy (Heroic - Range Tanking)
This strategy works best with the following composition:
2x Range Dps(warlock/mage/hunter/shaman/druid/priest)
1x Main healer(priest/shaman/paladin/druid)
1x NonManaBased Dps (warrior/rogue/bear/kitty) *possible with hunter or enhancement shaman in absence of all else
Positioning: have your main healer stand at the entrance of the platform about 10 yards in with 1 ranged dps to the right and 1 to the left approximately 15-20 yards away from the healer on either side. None of these 3 need move at all the whole fight so the range from each other is simply to make sure they are within healing/dps range and out of debuff dmg range of each other. Have the offhealer and the NMB-DPS wait with the healer for the pull.
The fight: Ranged Dps will "pull" and immediately go all out dps having no concern for threat/aggro whatsoever. Omor will stay in the center. He does not move. He will not use his shadow whip ability. He will simply fire shadowbolts at the Ranged DPS who has the highest aggro. The fight is very short so the main healer just has to spam heal whichever caster holds aggro, If you have made it this far your Main healer (regardless of class) should have no problem out healing the shadowbolt damage.
As soon as the range dps have made the "pull" the NMB-DPS runs to the feet of Omor and waits there for felhounds to spawn as they spawn he needs to aggro them and pull them behind Omor slightly in order to keep them out of mana burn range of the casters, the offhealer just needs to stay at max range healing the NMB-DPS until Omor is dead then the rest of the group can assist in killing off the felhounds. Be careful not to aggro Omor out of boredom waiting for a felhound as he will shadow whip and kill the person who is supposed to keep felhounds away from the casters.
As long as the felhounds are aggroed as they spawn and pulled slightly behind Omor so that casters don't get mana burned, all out dps from 2xRanged dps even if they are undergeared makes this a very short fight.
Note: This strategy works in normal mode as well
