World of Warcraft - How to Kill Maiden of Virtue - The Third Boss in Karazhan

Aug 18, 2007
Maiden of Virtue is the third boss in Karazhan and is an optional boss; you do not need to kill her to progress further into Karazhan. This essay will discuss how to defeat her.

For those that have never been to Karazhan, the instance is located at the southern end of Deadwind Pass. This zone sits between Duskwood and Swamp of Sorrows. When you enter Deadwind Pass from Duskwood, take your first right and follow the road south until you reach Karazhan. If you are entering from the Swamp of Sorrows side, you will need to make your first left and follow the road south until you reach Karazhan.

Maiden of Virtue has four abilities worth noting:

Holy Ground - She will continuously cast AOE waves that will spread out from her throughout the entire fight. These waves do minimal damage to their targets. However, if you get hit by them, they will silence you for approximately two seconds. For this reason, your tank should keep her in the middle of the dark gray area. The rest of the raid members should stand directly on top of either of the two dark gray steps leading up to the center area and they will easily avoid getting hit by this constant AOE.

Holy Fire - Random DOT that inflicts around 3,000 points of damage initially and an additional 2,000 every 2 seconds. This must be dispelled immediately. Holy Fire is the most dangerous of her abilities and needs to be removed as quickly as possible. For this reason, it's usually best to assign one full-time healer to remove this DOT.

Holy Wrath - AOE, instant-cast chain spell. The damage from this spell increases with each target that it jumps to. Everyone must stay clear of Maiden except your tank for the duration of the encounter. It is advisable not to have any melee DPS for this fight; all-ranged players is the easiest way to defeat her.

Repentance - Stuns all players for 10-12 seconds or until they take damage. When she casts Repentance, she will stun the entire raid. Since your tank will take almost immediate damage from Holy Ground, your tank will break free from Repentance and can resume tanking.

Primary roles:

Paladin - full time removal of Holy Fire. This DOT must be removed from party members as quickly as possible as it does a lot of damage. Your paladin should also keep Blessing of Sacrifice on the main tank at all times. When Maiden casts Repentance, your paladin will take damage along with your tank (from Blessing of Sacrifice) and they will both break from the stun. The paladin then assumes the role of primary healer for your tank while the rest of the party waits for the Repentance stun to wear off. If your paladin fails to break free from repentance, he or she must bubble and heal the main tank. You can only do this once, of course, so Blessing of Sacrifice must be kept on the tank at all times. Without Blessing of Sacrifice, she is extremely difficult to defeat.

Priests/Druids - must keep HOTS on the main tank at all times along with healing the rest of the party throughout the fight. Additionally, priests should create a one-click macro to target maiden and cast PAIN onto her (this extra DOT will help with the overall damage done to her).

To start the fight, everyone should spread-out around her. Be careful not to aggro her while you are getting into position! One of your priests should stand directly opposite the tank; this healer will be responsible for healing your main tank while everyone else moves in close to her. Prior to your tank charging in, your other healers should cast HOTS onto him or her.

Your tank should charge straight to the center of the area and tank her there. The rest of the party should form a circle around her and stand directly on top of the dark gray steps leading up to her. The first step is usually close enough to allow your paladin to remove Holy Fire from everyone without having "out-of-range" issues.

Keep HOTS on your tank, keep blessing of sacrifice up at all times, remember to stand on the dark gray, and keep your paladin alive! Follow these suggested tips and you should kill Maiden of Virtue within a few attempts.
