  • Getting hit by Leaxa causes Taint of G’huun, a stacking healing absorb that can only be expelled by healing through it. Prioritize targets with this debuff and avoid stacking too much of it yourself by avoiding as many of her abilities as possible.
  • Sidestep the Creeping Rot orb that Leaxa sends out.
  • When the Blood Effigy has spawned after Leaxa has cast Blood Mirror, the tank will have increased risk of being hit by the Blood Bolt from both Leaxa and Blood Effigy, unless interrupted. Be prepared for heavier tank damage.
  • HeroicHEROIC: Leaxa will jump to a random player and cast Sanguine Feast, which you should run out of to avoid being hit by.
