Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to this evening’s presentation! – Barnes the Stage Manager



This is part four of my short Resto -Shaman guides to Karazhan. This we focus on one of the more unique encounters in karazhan, the Opera Events.Now that you have killed Attumen, Moroes and Maiden, it’s time to take a breather and have some fun. To me, the Opera seems to be one of the two “breaks” from the boss fighting. None of the events are overly difficult and are more amusing than anything, with my personal favorite being the Big Bad Wolf.

Note: Since writing this, it seems that many do not agree with me about the opera being a “break” especially in regards to the Wizard of Oz event.  To those out there that don’t agree…tough.  I love em, they aren’t htat ahrd and this is my blog so pffttt to you! 

Big Bad Wolf:

  • Execute all normal healing and buffing functions.
  • Drop Tremor Totem to break the Bad Wolf’s Fear.
  • Earth Bind Totem may slow Big Bad down during the chase…haven’t tried it yet.
  • Earth Shield anyone with the little red riding hood de-buff.
  • Heal the crap out of little red riding hood.
  • If you are little red riding hood, get to the perimeter of the stage and run around the stage like a mother f***er.
  • Blood Lust at 25-20% as normal.

Big Bad Wolf is pretty much your normal tank and spank boss. Nice and easy if you ask me.

Wizard of Oz:

  • Fire elemental is perfect for Straw Man, if you can get him to go after it.
  • Searing Totem is also good for Straw Man.
  • Don’t use Magma Totem, only the first pulse affects Straw Man.
  • Your Frost Resist Totem works to minimize Dorthy’s water bolt damage.
  • Tremor Totem breaks the Fear.
  • Blood Lust at 25-20% as normal when Fighting the Croan.

This is one of the more envolved events since you have to deal with multiple targets at once, incuding the Tito. See all that time on Moroes helps didn’t it.

Romulo and Julianne:

  • Earth Shock interrupts all of Julianne’s casting (Eternal Affection – heal, powerful attraction- stun, blinding passion – holy damage 6k).  This will be especially importnat when you are fighting both of them and you need to keep Julianne from healing herself.
  • Purge Julianne’s Devotion.
  • Remove Poison, Poison Cleansing Totem removes Romulo’s Poison thrust.
  • Purge Romulo’s Daring.
  • Blood Lust at 25-20% as normal.

Resto Shaman Loot:

Now it is off to some backdoor action as we roll to say hi to the mother of all hospitality robots…the Curator.

Note: If you want to make it a short run to the backdoor….a little cast of chain lighting into the crowd can take care of that.
