The ZulGurub raids have some optional bosses, as youll be familiar with raiding by now, not every boss has to be defeated or even encountered. In this particular raid, however, every boss with a prefix of High Priest or High Priestess is absolutely required to progress the raid. As such, you have no option but to defeat this boss, which is usually the third encounter.

Until you defeat Marli, you will also give the buff of Aspect of Marli to Hakkar. Without further ado, lets get into the strategy and mechanics Marli.Without a minimum of two tanks, youre going to struggle to defeat Marli. The boss has two phases/forms. Many bosses in World of Warcraft Classic have forms that alternate at different %, usually, once theyre at lower health, they transition into a significantly stronger form with better abilities and inflict more damage. This isnt the case here, the transitions are done roughly every minute (on a timer), between a priest and shadra (spider) form.

If your role is that of the ranged DPS and healers, you must stay, at minimum, 30 yards from Marli. This is due to the Poison Bolt Volley ability that, as aforementioned, acts within 30 yards, and deals from 375 to 625 nature damage. It also does additional damage of 289-411 damage every two seconds for 10 seconds (so 5 bursts of additional damage done against you). Any healer or ranged DPS will die straight away if they do not anticipate this. Melee DPS can use some nature resistance, but of course, this negates your damage so isnt worth it.

The above information applies equally to both forms. This is because the Poison Bolt Volley is accompanied by an ability called Enveloping Webs. Whilst the enveloping webs ability applies only within 20 yards, it completely silences them and reduces your attack speed by 100% - negating any damage you can do. Youre rendered effectively useless, and the boss is further programmed to complement this ability with the charge ability, wherever and whenever it is possible. As such, following the correct distancing advice is of paramount importance and cannot be ignored under any circumstance.

If youre inflicted with poison, certain abilities can help. Such as the Poison Cleansing Totem that is accessible for the Shamans class.

The High Priest will also spawn spiders, as what is known commonly as adds. These must be dealt with by the DPS immediately, and not left to stack against your party. These adds are only available to Marli in the Priest phase. The problem with these spiders is that the longer you take to deal with them, the more trouble youll find yourself in. With the growth ability, the damage + size of the spawn will grow by a quarter every four seconds. It can also be accompanied with the enlarge ability. So, you need to deal with these spiders before they are grown and out of control and outnumber you. Its best for ranged DPS to deal with these spiders.

The boss will also, after casting Enveloping Webs against melee DPS, will then charge against your ranged DPS. The off-tank must be awaiting this event and return the boss to the melee DPS. Your off-tank is to focus on the first add (that spawns alongside the boss) and then sit with the ranged DPS and healers at a distance of 30 yards.

The third important ability is drain ability. Your melee DPS will need some form of interrupt ability to combat this. Otherwise, you can have Marli healed for 12,500 - per second. Not only that, but it will also deal damage of 3500, or drain the health from one of your party members. If you do not interrupt this ability, then Marli will have effectively infinite health - she will constantly regenerate and reverse your damage. Interrupt abilities, if you need a reminder, include abilities such as Kick and Shield Bash, but there are many ways of achieving an interrupt. Another such ability would be Pummel.

To pull the boss away from the spiders at the start, if youre a Priest with the Mind Control ability, you can help the tank. You can cast Mind Control on the speaker next to Marli, and she will be aggressive towards the speaker, giving the tank some precious additional time whilst the boss cannot do much.
