General Strategy, Synergy and Utilization

In PvE...
Mother Talzin brings a completely new and fresh gameplay experience to the Nightsisters. In the Heroic Tank Raid, she offers an impressive amount of AoE damage through the use of “Plague” combined with “Ichor Lightning”. “Spirit Blade Assault” has the ability to revive all Nightsister allies, creating a powerful sustain mechanism which allows Nightsisters to recover from what would otherwise be a weak Raid attempt. Additionally, “Plaguebearer” makes Talzin a must-have for Nightsisters, whether she is under Asajj's lead or her own, and will ensure she is a mainstay of the squad for many, many full moons.

In PvP...
Mother Talzin is crucial to a top-tier, competitive Nightsister squad. She is the only source of Plague, a new debuff unique to Nightsisters that serves as their primary source of damage in the first half of a fight. A well-constructed Nightsister squad is particularly difficult to beat on defense unless you bring the proper tools. The Zeta upgrade on “The Great Mother” provides a nearly unstoppable source of assists, generating bonus damage and extra control utility throughout each fight..

There are no plans for 6/7 dot mods this year. As with most of our Character Strat post gifs and media, there may be aspects the team is futzing with, experimenting or just using to make the showcase of the character cool.
