Hellfire Assult

  • Chi Explosion has a range, so a 4-chi ChiEx can be used to pick up new waves of adds.


  • You can solo one bomb per air phase with ToD unglyphed.


  • (Not Tested) Diffuse Magic *should* mitigate Dia's Nightmare Visage (since it is shadow damage).



  • Shuffle does not count as active mitigation when it comes to not getting the Shred Armor debuff, so use whatever Elusive Brew stacks you have for it.




  • Revival is the perfect healing cd for the transition from p2-p3, just remember to be centrally located since it's range is 40y.

Hellfire Assault

  • I found out it's better to go serenity/chi brew and abuse of SEF then chi explosion (assuming you have t18 4pc). Xuen. (have not try chi torpedo)


  • Again serenity/chi brew, abusing of SEF on bombs


  • One of the best fights for WW. Use SEF at all times on all targets (If your raid is having problems with damage, use SEF only at one target, following the target focus priority). Again Serenity/chi brew set. Touch of Karma can be used on Dia's Wailing Horror spell/phase or on bladestorm from the bladedude,


  • Again the single target set Serenity/Chi brew. Use SEF on adds (God I love that spell) and careful when using ToD because can blow the fel debuff on all melee.ToK on Kilrogg Spinning skill.


  • Serenity/chi brew. Use SEF and Spinning Crane kick on hands phase.SEF and touch of death on the hand with greater life.ToK on pound for more damage. Zen Med/diffuse magic if you fail dodgin waves or will step on a rune.


  • Serenity/chi brew. ToK on Feast of Souls and all big cd's of damage.

Shadow Lord Iskar

  • If your raid's cleave are good enough go for chi explosion and cleave the entire fighting using SEF when adds come. If your raid's struggling on killing important adds fast, go for single target set. Don't forget to have a Transcendence for emergencial situations on phantasmal winds.


  • Single set. Use SEF if raid needs more damage on adds.Touch Of Karma can be used on Reverberating Blow

Fel Lord

  • Single target set. Tank and spank. Use Diffuse magic and Zen to soak pools.


  • Chi explosion/Ascension.I prefer Xuen here than the other talents. Use SEF on Omnus and Ankellion (Those big purple and green dudes). Careful for the purple adds that might spawn on melees at second phase, that can wipe entire raid.


  • Serenity/chi brew and Xuen.


  • I like going for single target damage, since the important phase on this boss is the single target phase which is the 3rd or 4th (can't remember). SEF on Doom Lord while you kill the second mage. ToK can be used on shadow force or fel hellstorm. Also notice you can use your nimble brew to set yourself free form that fear spell. 


  • Serenity/Chi brew. Use SEF on adds and ToD on doomfire and that big adds who explodes when comes near Arch. ToK and Diffuse magic when stepped on fel fire.


Sorry about bad english, not my first language. Hope it helps

      Guild: Dawn of the Dead |   Faction: Horde | Server: Zul'jin (PvE) | Timezone: EST   Current Progression: 4/7M Emerald Nightmare   We've been raiding max size raids continuously since WoW has been released and are the only guild to have done so here on Zul'jin. We have strong leadership, no drama, and plans to keep raiding for years to come. Unlike many guilds, we're not recruiting for the short term, and we don't over-recruit.   Website:   Raid Times: Our schedule is 8-11 EST Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.   Needs: We are a small guild, and we expect high attendance. As such, we recruit people to raid, and desire people who can step in and contribute immediately. We don’t recruit people to sit around, so all spots are for raiders who can expect to be in most every raid.   We are currently looking to add skilled and reliable:   2-3 Melee DPS
      High: Enhancement Shaman
      Low: WW Monk, DH
      3-4 Ranged DPS
      High: Hunter, Shadow Priest
      Low: Elemental Shaman, Balance Druid
      1 Healer
      High: Disc Priest, Resto Shaman, Holy Paladin
        ALL exceptional applicants will be considered regardless of the class.   What we ask of you:   Effort: Not all applicants come from highly progressed guilds, and that’s okay, but it does mean that you need to be prepared. We recruit the player, not the gear, but we do ask that you have some current experience and be a minimum iLvl of 725. You need to have the best gear available to you, (BoE, Crafted) with gems and top end enchants. You also need to be able to display an understanding of your class mechanics, role in a raid, and ability to learn new fights.   Attitude: It’s a game. We play for fun. How you fit in with the guild is taken very seriously. We’re a bunch of mostly 18-30 guys and girls who have fun playing together. While we have a good time, we also know when it’s time to buckle down and work hard.   Skill: The best way to determine skill is to see you in a raid. Because we don’t wish to have anyone transfer that we’re not serious about, be able to express your knowledge of your class and why you’re an exceptional player who would be an asset and is worth a shot. Gear will come with time. Skill will not. Impress us with your knowledge of your class and gameplay mechanics. Feel free to share any logs, theorycrafting, or other work you've done.   Commitment: We make a commitment to you, and ask you to do the same to us. A raid takes a team of more than 20 individuals working together. We rely on you to show up to raids, research your class and new fights, respect your fellow players, and notify us when you are unavailable. You rely on us for gear, experience, and coordination. It's a large investment of our time to train and gear new players, and we ask the same investment on your part so that we can each benefit.   We have a variety of informational resources available to prospective applicants on our web site: please refer to our "Applications" forum for detailed information. Also feel free to visit us on WoWProgresss for more information and kill videos!   Should you wish to speak to someone in-game, please don't hesitate to reach out to an officer directly, whisper Xanah (Xana#1662), Taladros (Rallion#11635) or Jeare (Jeare#1759).   We look forward to hearing from you soon!

      Hello fellow monks,
      i came here for help, i feel like i underperforming on most single target situation. My big problem is, i have such a low dmg from FoF, i dont even know why. I must do something very wrong with my FoF. Can please someone look at this and try to find why iam such a lefthanded ?
      I ready every guides, i still learning with Serenity, but i think its not major problem, why i have 10M dmg lowest on FoF dmg then others.
      Thank you !!
