Once you're done with Moroes, head back to the Banquet Hall, and go up the stairs at the bottom left corner as you walk in - you will now be entering the area with the Guest Chambers after a few more Valet Pulls in the floor above! Remember, aside from this being the pathway to the Maiden of Virtue, it is also where you will find the first quest item within Karazhan, the journal you are sent for. Check back later for a full quest walkthrough once the boss guides are done for the quest details.

Trash Monsters

Night Mistress - She will transform into her true form at 50%, removing all her debuffs. She has a shadow damage DoT that hits someone for 3000 over 10 seconds, and uses both Shadow Bolt and Searing Pain on your raid.

Concubine - She will transform, like the Night Mistress, at 50%, Seducing everyone in AoE range. Uses two debuffs that could either make you hurt yourself when dealing damage, or heal your target when dealing damage.

Wanton Hostess - Has an aura that reduces physical damage by 50%, transforms at 50% like the others, using an AoE silence to those near her.

Spectral Sentry - Uses Multishot on your raid, spread out to avoid mass damage!

Phantom Guardsman - Can knock you down, stunning you for a few seconds, and summon a hound to aid him.

For these pulls, CC (Crowd Control) is preferred via shackles or ice traps to avoid having multiple of these monsters using their abilities on your raid at once!

Now for the main part, the Maiden of Virtue!

Maiden of Virtue

Quick Facts

The Maiden of Virtue has approximately 376,000 HP

Strategy

There are many ways to dealing with the Maiden of Virtue, some are very creative while some are more straight-forward. We will go over the most basic setup and positioning to make this as easy as possible for your raid!

The Maiden of Virtue's main abilities consist of repentance (stunning you for 5-6 seconds) and Holy Fire / Wrath on random party members. For this to be minimized and not cause a wipe, you will need to spread out. Assign DPS to spread all across the room so that ranged DPS is separated from each other, yet in range for heals (healers should spread out too).

Once everyone is spread out in her circle-shaped room, it's time for the pull - the tank should tank her right where she is at, and melee should follow close behind him to do their job. Ranged should attack her normally but be mindful of Holy Fire and Repentance, she will use them on everyone yet they can be broken several ways:

- Berserker Rage will break or make the tank immune to repentance, same for Hunters with Beast Within.

- Blessing of Sacrifice will break both paladin and tank out of it early thanks to damage sharing.

Make sure to have healers capable of decursing and avoid to have 2-3 people in one same spot to avoid Holy Wrath from chaining too high and doing massive damage to your party!

Grounding totems can help keep the Holy Fires down should you have 2 shamans doing them constantly.

Make sure to always have everyone in range of a cleanser! this is a must, since Holy Fire deals a lot of damage and should be removed as soon as possible.

Abilities

Melee: 2000-3000 normal hit, 3000-4000 crushing blows on a tank every swing.

Holy Fire: 3000-3500 fire damage + 1750 fire damage over 12 seconds DoT. Must be dispelled! May target pets. Maiden uses this ability on non-melee targets.

Holy Wrath: AoE holy attack - 2000 to the first target, 3000 to the second, 4000 to the third, and it can escalate way faster should it hit more. Spread out to avoid this!

Repentance: Incapacitates all players except her target for up to 12 seconds, broken by damage. Does 2000-2500 damage over time to all in repentance. Prepare for it - 25 seconds per cast or so.

Holy Ground: Maiden's version of consecration, does 200-300 damage per 2 seconds and has a silence effect initially for 1 second on melee attackers.

Cleansing Holy Fire and keeping your ranged DPS up is the key to victory, keep heals over time on your tank to avoid him getting killed by an unlucky hit.
