Quick-Read Tactics: Scholomance Heroic – Instructor Chillheart, Jandice Barov, Rattlegore, Lilian Voss, and Darkmaster Gandling

Here’s one for the old-school players – the Scholomance instance, probably the hardest of the Vanilla WoW dungeons, has been completely revamped and updated to a Level 90 Heroic Dungeon for Mists of Pandaria. But have no fear – we’ll take you through the tactics for Instructor Chillheart, Jandice Barov, Rattlegore, Lilian Voss, and the Headmaster, Darkmaster Gandling himself. And we’ll do it quickly, too – no watching a 10-minute video for a single boss fight!

Quick Copy-Paste to Party Chat – If there’s someone in your group who isn’t certain about the tactics, click in the text box below each boss to auto-select a single line of tactics. We’ve checked them to make sure they’ll fit in a single line of party chat. Then CTRL+C to copy it, go back into WoW, start Party Chat, and CTRL+V to paste all the tactics your group needs!

(On a Mac, that’s Command-C and Command-V)

Normal mode vs Heroic Mode – These tactics apply to both Normal and Heroic versions of this dungeon – Heroic version bosses simply have more health and do more damage.

Darkmaster Gandling The Headmaster

Tank pop CD on Incinerate. Kill adds when he casts Rise. When you’re teleported away, kill adds and come back. Healer: dispel adds when teleported to make killing them easier. Also, watch out for Immolate on players and dispel it.
