What is the best healing strategy for the last boss in Utgarde Keep? He deals a lot of AOE damage, especially in phase 2.

Eesh, yeah. It's up to your party mostly to try and make sure they're getting out of his "RAWR-BOOM" ability...(Dreadful Roar and Dark Smash I think they're called).

I think both act as an interrupt, one of them has a spell-lock mechanic attached to it. Really the only thing you can do in AoE damage fights is throw HoTs on everyone and top them off when you can (hopefully they have enough health to survive his AoE blasts to begin with). It's similar to healing through the Lightning Nova on Loken. Just try to keep Hots rolling on everyone and then top them off after (with regrowth or nourish, whichever you like more).

im not sure which is which.... but one ability of his is a cone effect. so he should tanked with his back to the entrance. the tank should move left to right to avoid his smash (i think its the smash) there is a spell lock as well so when that is warned then do not use any spells that are not instant cast.

all ranged can position themselves near the columns so they can take shelter when his aoe is about to hit.

that should mitigate a lot of the healers work tbh and allow you to really worry about the tank and melee. but i agree with destinae its up to your party to avoid his badness :)

finally watch out for the whirling axe of his. caught me out a few times because i wasnt watching :)
