Phase 2 begins when Zor'lok reaches 40% health and he flies to the middle of the room, absorbs the gas which buffs his damage, and pull everyone to him. During this phase, Zor'lok uses all the abilities he had on the platforms.
- Inhale is cast once or twice between Exhales. Inhale increases the damage of Exhale by 50%. Inhale cannot be interrupted. When Exhale is cast and there are 3 or more stacks of Inhale on him, the stacks of Inhale are removed.
- Exhale is a channeled spell which targets a random player that deals damage to them every 0.5 second and stuns them. Moving between Zor'lok and the target will stop Exhale affecting the target, and hits the new victim instead but deal reduced damage, this should be done by the tank as Zor'lok deals no melee damage when doing Exhale. This means if melee are affected by Exhale they should move away from teh boss to allow the tank to break the beam.
- Song of the Empress deals raid damage if no players in melee range. While movement buffs help they are not necessary as it is easy to reach Zor'lok's new location before he channels Song of the Empress.
