Rogue Raiding: Warlord Zon’Ozz

If you ever played table tennis, aka Ping Pong, then you will have no trouble understanding the mechanics of this fight. The fight has fairly simple mechanics, all of which can be found in the Icy Veins guide *here* along with the overall strategy.

Now for the roguey bits:
The boss should start out turned towards the ranged so the ball is spawned between where the melee and ranged are usually, so be ready to position yourself at his back before the pull. You will have to rotate around after the spawn to get stacked with the other melee. Another big thing to remember is to save your main cooldowns for the Black phase of the boss because he will be taking increased damange.

The main damage in the Ping Pong phase will be when the ball hits your group. You can Cloak of Shadows the damage and feint will also reduce the amount of the AOE taking. Once it is time for the ball to hit the boss, you have a couple of options. The first is to just rotate around to stack on the tank and damage the boss from the front, although this will lower your dps slightly. Secondly, you can just rotate to his side that is farthest from the likely contact point and continue hitting him to your heart’s content (which is the choice a good rogue should always make).

After the Ping Pong Ball hits the boss, be ready to re-position yourself to wherever his back is when he moves to the center. This is the time to hit all your cooldowns and burn as much of his health as you can since he will be taking a substantial increase in damage proportional to the amount of times the ball was bounced. If your healers are having trouble keeping you up, popping Feint on its cooldown every time can help alleviate some stress by lowering your damage taken.
Repeat steps as necessary in order to wipe the floor with him.
