Background

Adventure Guide

Ursoc is one of the Wild Gods. Patron of the furbolg, and closely linked to the druidic power of shapeshifting, the ancient great bear has long been a protector of Azeroth. But as Ursoc slumbered at his shrine in the Grizzly Hills, the world around him was plunged into corruption, and he awoke to torment and nightmare, consuming and twisting his being.

Overview

Ursoc tramples his enemies with Barreling Impact and periodically roars for a Roaring Cacophany. In Mythic difficulty, Nightmare Images periodically animate and attack players.

Tanks

Ursoc uses two interacting debuff mechanics that are of special concern to the tanks: Overwhelm and Rend Flesh. Tanks who have stacks of Overwhelm suffer increased damage from the Rend Flesh DoT. In order to minimize tank damage the following taunt schedule can be used:
