Strategy[edit | edit source]

This is really a burn fight. Tairiza spawn "sacs" approximately every 30 seconds. These sac will land on a random person in the raid which will incapacitate them as well as kill them over time. Have ranged DPS and healers to the left or right of the door with a Ranged DPS main assist calling the sacs and making the ranged dps cycle between killing the sacs then immediately back on the named. Melee DPS needs to stand right under the big butt of the Widow Mistress and target the mob directly and BURN IT DOWN. If a sac spawns on melee dps or the Main Tank it's easy for the Melee dps to just TAB, burn the sac down, then resume beating the spider. At approximately 40% she spawns a group of spiders. Once this happens pretty much ignore the sacs and focus the burn on the mob. A zerker or strong AE'ing offtank needs to try to get as many spiders beating on them as possible.

NOTE: The spider adds are immune to all taunts. Another option if you have multiple Enchanters is to mezz them. We still do it that way. Either way you want to burn Tairiza as fast as possible once the adds start. If you have big spells/CAs with long recast timers, make sure you save them for that final push.

Once the spiders pop everyone in the raid target the named directly and just BURN BURN BURN. Some people will die. They need to revive and get back in. AE's will burn a lot of the spiders down, but prolly not all of them so once you kill the named kill the remaining spiders and loot the metal chest.
