Upon completion of this quest, you will get the necklace and then enter Onyxia's Lair raid.
Tips to defeat Boss Onyxia in Classic
Onyxia is the only boss in Onyxia's Lair raid and you can defeat her through three different phases. In phase 1, it's very dangerous for you to be behind and in front of her due to her abilities Tail Sweep, Wing Buffet and Flame Breath. You should stay away from her tail to protect yourself from damage caused by her Tail Sweep ability. Once Onyxia has been turned around, the tank will need to position themselves all the way against the back wall so that the knockback from Wing Buffet will not send the tank flying across the room. After Onyxia is in this position the DPS may start attacking the boss.
When Onyxia reaches 65% health, you will begin to enter the next phase. During this period, Onyxia will use her " Deep Breath" abilities Fireball and Breath if she is in the air, so you should trace Onyxia's location all the time. Once the message " taking a deep breath" appears, you need to run to a "safe zone" located on the sides of whichever way she is facing. You'd better spread out at least 8 yards from each other to minimize the damage of Fireball when she is not casting deep breath. And Greater Fire Protection Potion is highly recommended to help soak the damage from this ability.
After phase 2, Onyxia starts to land for phase 3 at 40% health. Like phase 1, DPS starts to attack the boss only before she is repositioned the same way as she is in phase 1. In this phase Onyxia gains new ability Bellowing Roar, and Onyxia Whelp will spawn and attack the raid occasionally. In addition, she will also cause the cracks spread around the room to start pulsing with lava every several seconds and dealing fire damage to any player. Thus, tanks need to use Berserker Rage to avoid the fear or rely on their healer's Tremor Totem or Fear Ward. Further, Greater Fire Protection Potion is also recommended for this phase. As long as the offtank keeps all whelps off of the raid and people watch their step, Onyxia will be defeated.
In a word, hope the information can help you defeat the boss WOW Classic Onyxia successfully and have a good time in Classic. By the way, you can come to us for the cheap WOW Classic gold all the time.
