General Information

On this page, you will find tips, tricks, and strategies tailored to your Arms Warrior for each boss of the following raid: Vault of the Incarnates. All our content is updated for World of Warcraft — Dragonflight 10.0.5.

1.

Introduction

Below, you can find class and spec-specific advice for every fight in Vault of the Incarnates. If you are looking for a general overview of the Raid that is not spec-specific, check out our dedicated Vault of the Incarnates guides.

On this page, you will find Arms Warrior specific information to deal with each boss in the Vault of the Incarnates raid.

This page assumes that you already understand most of the mechanics of each encounter. These can be found on the full raid guide, so what is contained here are details specifically tailored toward Arms Warrior and how you can deal with each fight as best as possible.

Disclaimer: These tips are based on the limited testing done on the Dragonflight Beta. Encounters are subject to change; Blizzard may have reworked mechanics or abilities that you used to be able to Spell Reflection Icon Spell Reflection may no longer be reflectable.

Arms Warriors are not very versatile in that they must specialize in single-target or multitarget capabilities, losing damage in one area to gain in another. As many encounters feature varying amounts of adds, each fight is a judgment call based on how many extra targets there are, how high of a priority they are, and how much extra multitarget damage the raid group needs. In most cases, Arms Warriors should prioritize single-target damage and allow others to deal with adds since that is where their greatest strengths lie. However, Arms still has AoE options available if desired.

2.

Eranog

2.1.

Talents

Eranog spawns several adds from pools each time Flamerift Icon Flamerift is cast, but these are mostly burst down. Whether you prioritize a single target or AoE build will depend on how long they live, as even taking Bladestorm Icon Bladestorm represents a major point investment.

2.2.

Tips

You cannot use Heroic Leap to run through the fiery walls spawned by the Primal Flame.

For more information, please refer to our Eranog guide.

3.

Terros

3.1.

Talents

You should use the suggested single target build, but consider taking Intervene Icon Intervene to help with movement.

3.2.

Tips

Terros is a simple DPS race with a lot of ground-targeted abilities to dodge, so make liberal use of Heroic Leap Icon Heroic Leap, Charge Icon Charge, and even Intervene Icon Intervene as necessary.

The damage from Awakened Earth Icon Awakened Earth and Explosive Reaction Icon Explosive Reaction can be reflected, but doing so will not prevent debuffs.

For more information, please refer to our Terros guide.

4.

The Primal Council

4.1.

Talents

The four targets do not share health but must all die together, so prioritize the AoE build to cleave them effectively.

4.2.

Tips

Frost Spike Icon Frost Spike and Lightning Bolt Icon Lightning Bolt can be interrupted or spell reflected if they happen to target you.

For more information, please refer to our The Primal Council guide.

5.

Sennarth, the Cold Breath

5.1.

Talents

There will periodically be a Frostbreath Arachnid add to cleave alongside the boss and several Caustic Spiderling adds throughout the fight, so either prioritize the AoE build, or consider dropping a point from Bloodborne Icon Bloodborne in the single target build for Sweeping Strikes Icon Sweeping Strikes and ignoring the smaller adds.

5.2.

Tips

Nothing on this fight can be spell reflected, but it can still be used as a general damage reduction cooldown.

Heroic Leap Icon Heroic Leap and Intervene Icon Intervene can be used to counteract the pull from Gossamer Burst Icon Gossamer Burst, while Charge Icon Charge can help prevent the knockback from Repelling Burst Icon Repelling Burst.

6.

Dathea, Ascended

6.1.

Talents

Arms Warriors will be better off staying on the main platform and prioritizing boss damage, so use the single target build unless specifically assigned to deal with adds.

6.2.

Tips

Raging Tempest Icon Raging Tempest can be spell reflected.

Heroic Leap Icon Heroic Leap is useful for mitigating unexpected knockbacks or getting back to the main platform in case you miss the knockback.

For more information, please refer to our Dathea, Ascended guide.

7.

Kurog Grimtotem

7.1.

Talents

This is a single-target encounter, so prioritize the single-target build.

7.2.

Tips

Nothing can be spell reflected, but it can still be used as a general damage reduction cooldown.

For more information, please refer to our Kurog Grimtotem guide.

8.

Broodkeeper Diurna

8.1.

Talents

This fight features constantly spawning adds that need to be controlled, so you can prioritize the AoE build.
