General Information

On this page, you will find tips, tricks, and strategies tailored to your Brewmaster Monk for each boss of the following raid: Sepulcher of the First Ones. All our content is updated for World of Warcraft — Shadowlands 9.2.

1.

Introduction

On this page, you will find Brewmaster-Monk-specific information to deal with each boss in the Sepulcher of the First Ones 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 Brewmaster Monks and what you can do to deal with each fight as best as possible.

Disclaimer: Sepulcher of the First Ones is unique among raids in that three of its encounters were never available for testing. This, along with some of its others being changed substantially between their time on the public test realm and a live environment, means that many of the tips for these bosses will have to be changed over time.

1.1.

Resetting Encounters with Transcendence

All Monk specializations — but especially Brewmasters — are capable of resetting most boss encounters with the use of Transcendence Icon Transcendence and Transcendence: Transfer Icon Transcendence: Transfer. This can be especially useful in a progression environment to save on both repair costs and allow players to keep their consumable buffs, such as food from a Feast of Gluttonous Hedonism Icon Feast of Gluttonous Hedonism. All you have to do as a Monk is place your Transcendence spirit beyond the area that will normally be closed off after engaging the boss. Then, if you would like to reset the encounter, simply get the attention of the boss with Provoke Icon Provoke and teleport outside of the encounter area with Transcendence: Transfer. If done successfully, the boss will follow you outside and despawn.

Unless otherwise used during an encounter or mentioned in its tips section, it is highly recommended to get into the habit of setting up this form of fight reset. However, you should never feel forced to do so if there is a point in an encounter that you prefer having access to one of your most powerful mobility tools.

  • In order to trigger Ravening Burrow Icon Ravening Burrow and remove your stacks of the Ephemera Dust Icon Ephemera Dust debuff, everyone in the raid, including the tanks, must stand on the same spot. Your ideal time to do this is during a cast of Retch Icon Retch.
