Brewmaster Monk Tank Vault of the Incarnates Raid Guide — Dragonflight 10.1
On this page, you will find tips, tricks, and strategies tailored to your Brewmaster Monk for each boss of the following raid: Vault of the Incarnates. All our content is updated for World of Warcraft — Dragonflight 10.1.
On this page, you will find Brewmaster-Monk-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 Brewmaster Monks and what you can do to deal with each fight as best as possible.
Resetting Encounters with Transcendence
All Monk specializations — but especially Brewmasters — are capable of resetting most boss encounters with the use of Transcendence and Transcendence: Transfer. This can be especially useful in a progression environment to save on repair costs and allow players to keep their consumable buffs, such as food from a Hoard of Draconic Delicacies. 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, get the boss's attention with Provoke and teleport outside 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 getting 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.
The following talent tree is recommended for general use in raid encounters. Be aware that you may switch some points to gain specific utility against certain mechanics, which we will mention on specific bosses where relevant. Remember that you can also easily import the talent tree below into the game with either of the two "Copy Export String" buttons:
For this fight, use the generic raiding build linked above.
- You will be responsible for moving Eranog around the room to reclaim space that has been taken up by the many Lava Flows and Molten Spikes.
- Swap tanking duties based on how many stacks of Burning Wound you have received from Eranog's attacks. This will generally take place at roughly 5 stacks.
- Make use of Touch of Death against whichever Primal Flames your raid is choosing to destroy during each Army of Flame
- In Mythic: Eranog will additionally create Greater Flamerifts that contain a Flamescale Captain; quickly establish threat on it and be ready to interrupt its Pyroblasts.
For more information, please refer to our Eranog guide.
The generic raid build will be sufficient for this fight, as you will exclusively be fighting one target. If you wish to deal more damage, consider making use of Eye of the Tiger or Blackout Combo.
- Your main role in this fight is to remove pillars created by Awakened Earth with Concussive Slam, swapping tanking duties after receiving two stacks.
- Be careful not to fall into the center of the room where Terros is while avoiding mechanics like Shattering Impact or Resonating Annihilation.
- Even if you are not the direct target of Concussive Slam, you can still receive its debuff. Avoid its line if you are not the active tank!
- In Mythic: you will be debuffed by Infused Fallout and must touch another player to remove it; this will generally be your cotank. Remember to avoid the Reactive Bedrock formed at your feet when the debuff is removed!
For more information, please refer to our Terros guide.
The Primal Council
For this fight, you will want to focus on dealing more AoE damage due to fighting four targets for most of the encounter, reflected in the build code below. The generic build above will otherwise be fine.
- Kadros Icewrath and Dathea Stormlash will be annoying to move due to primarily casting Frost Spike and Lightning Bolt, respectively. Take advantage of when they are interrupted and not casting other mechanics to reposition.
- Your tanking duties on this encounter will revolve around one tank holding Embar Firepath's attention while the other holds Opalfang's. Taunt swap after Opalfang has cast Crush.
- You will need to run into Scorched Ground during each Primal Blizzard, but only briefly. Do this at 4 or 5 stacks of the debuff to avoid needing to enter multiple times.
- Touch of Death can be incredibly useful against any player trapped in a Frost Tomb.
For more information, please refer to our The Primal Council guide.
Sennarth, the Cold Breath
For this fight, you will want to focus on dealing more AoE damage due to fighting multiple targets for most of the encounter, reflected in the build code below. The generic build above will otherwise be fine.
- You can use Roll, Transcendence, and specific parts of the terrain to avoid death from Gossamer Burst rather than needing to stand in any Sticky Webbing. Alternatively, Tiger's Lust can be used to remove the Sticky Webbing debuff before you or another player are Wrapped in Webs.
- Be ready to get the attention of every Frostbreath Arachnid that spawns; one will appear on every platform layer of this encounter.
- As Web Blast is used rather than a traditional auto attack, you will want to swap tanking duties after reaching roughly 6 or more stacks of the debuff depending on how comfortable your healers are with your damage intake.
For more information, please refer to our Sennarth, the Cold Breath guide.
The generic raid build will be sufficient for this fight, as you will mostly be simultaneously fighting one or two targets. You may wish to consider swapping to Chi Burst Mythic, however.
- When Dathea reaches full Energy and summons Volatile Infusers and Stormcallers, locate which platform they are on and ensure that the Volatile Infuser next to Dathea is defeated near it. You or your cotank will be riding the knockback generated from its defeat over to the adds before using the other Infuser to return.
- Interrupt Diverted Essence from the Volatile Infusers as soon as possible to limit Dathea's strength.
- Be careful to not receive Conductive Mark, as you will be moved around a lot on this fight and may inadvertently spread it yourself!
- Swap tanking duties after every two casts of Zephyr Slam; be careful to not be knocked off the platform by its knockback!
- Transcendence can be useful to avoid falling off of the encounter's platform due to how many knockback effects are present.
For more information, please refer to our Dathea, Ascended guide.
This fight features all sorts of damage and target counts. However, the generic build will suffice as it is primarily one to two targets fought at a time.
- You and your cotank will ultimately have control over which mechanics are present on this encounter at a given time, based on which of the four elemental Altars you move him to. You cannot move Kurog more than once every 20 seconds due to Primal Break.
- A recommended order for the elemental altars on this encounter is Frost > Fire > Earth > Storm.
- Swap tanking duties after every cast of Sundering Strike; be aware that it will knock you back as well!
- As a Brewmaster Monk, you are especially vulnerable to the healing absorb from Enveloping Earth. Save a defensive cooldown for its application.
For more information, please refer to our Kurog Grimtotem guide.
For this fight, you will want to focus on dealing more AoE damage due to fighting many targets for most of the encounter, reflected in the build code below. The generic build above will otherwise be fine.
- During the first phase of this encounter, when all eggs have not been destroyed, Broodkeeper Diurna can be held for the entire time by one tank outside of Mythic difficulty. However, due to Mortal Stoneclaws applying Mortal Wounds, this tank should not be you. Instead, as a Brewmaster Monk, your focus should be on fighting the distant adds that spawn throughout the room.
- During this encounter, adds must be kept at least 50 yards away from Diurna or they will become nearly undefeatable due to Broodkeeper's Bond.
- Be mindful of any Tarasek Earthweaver adds, as their Burrowing Strike will reduce your Armor, while the hard-to-see ground effect of Tremors will stun you for four seconds!
- Stay at least five yards away from other players if affected by a Drakonid Stormbringer's Ionizing Charge
- During Phase 2 of this encounter — when all the eggs have been destroyed, or enough time has passed — you will need to swap tanking duties after every cast of Mortal Stoneclaws. However, there will be no additional adds to worry about once every egg is destroyed.
For more information, please refer to our Broodkeeper Diurna guide.
Raszageth the Storm-Eater
As Raszageth's encounter largely features single-target fighting, the generic build will suffice.
- Phase 1
- Swap tanking duties with every cast of Electrified Jaws.
- Be sure to not be knocked off the platform during each Hurricane Wing cast by standing near a Static Field.
- Ring of Peace is uniquely powerful for stopping multiple Volatile Sparks from Volatile Current.
- Intermission 1
- Move around the platform you are knocked to, defeating Surging Ruiners and their additional adds summoned when Surge is removed.
- If your platform is the first one targeted by Raszageth's Lightning Devastation, you will always have to move the enemies out of its path to avoid taking lethal damage.
- Phase 2
- Continue to swap tanking duties with every cast of Electrified Jaws.
- Save your cooldowns such as Weapons of Order, Exploding Keg, and any on-use trinket effects for Stormsurge. During this time you will receive a damage buff from Focused Charge if you stand near a Stormcharged player of the same polarity.
- If possible, assist players afflicted with Fulminating Charge by removing its snare with Tiger's Lust.
- Roll, Transcendence, and Diffuse Magic are especially useful for reducing your damage taken by Tempest Wing.
- Intermission 2
- Get the attention of the Colossal Stormfiend. In Heroic, there are two of them on opposite sides of the platform.
- Dodge the Ball Lightning emitted by the Colossal Stormfiend(s).
- Ring of Peace and Leg Sweep can be useful to control the Seeking Stormlings spawned by Storm Break.
- Watch out for further Lightning Devastations from Raszageth during this time.
- Phase 3
- Avoid standing in the Raging Storm gradually closing in on the platform; the Storm's Spite DoT effect is permanent.
- In this phase, you will alternate tanking with every cast of Thunderous Blast; when Raszageth casts this on you, be sure to use Celestial Brew along with another defensive cooldown to mitigate or complete negate the damage your raid will receive from Thunderous Blast afterward!
- Continue to assist players afflicted with Fulminating Charge through Tiger's Lust, if possible.
- Remember to use Roll and Transcendence to reduce your damage taken from Tempest Wing. Diffuse Magic is better served against Thunderous Blast instead.
