General Information

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 10.0.5.

1.

Introduction

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.

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 repair costs and allow players to keep their consumable buffs, such as food from a Hoard of Draconic Delicacies Icon 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 Icon 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.

Eranog

3.1.

Talent Adjustments

For this fight, use the generic raiding build linked above.

3.2.

Tips

  • You will be responsible for moving Eranog around the room to reclaim space that has been taken up by the many Lava Flow Icon Lava Flows and Molten Spikes Icon Molten Spikes.
  • Swap tanking duties based on how many stacks of Burning Wound Icon Burning Wound you have received from Eranog's attacks. This will generally take place at roughly 5 stacks.
  • Make use of Touch of Death Icon Touch of Death against whichever Primal Flames your raid is choosing to destroy during each Army of Flame Icon Army of Flame
  • In MythicMythic: Eranog will additionally create Greater Flamerift Icon Greater Flamerifts that contain a Flamescale Captain; quickly establish threat on it and be ready to interrupt its Pyroblast Icon Pyroblasts.

For more information, please refer to our Eranog guide.

4.

Terros

4.1.

Talent Adjustments

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 Icon Eye of the Tiger or Blackout Combo Icon Blackout Combo.

  • BwQAP1tpyZCKK6xz/PGFSDdghBAAAAAAIBAAAAJFKtkkAJJlGBAAAIlEFJJRCBJJJJlEARi0SrEC
4.2.

Tips

  • Your main role in this fight is to remove pillars created by Awakened Earth Icon Awakened Earth with Concussive Slam Icon 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 Icon Shattering Impact or Resonating Annihilation Icon Resonating Annihilation.
  • Even if you are not the direct target of Concussive Slam Icon Concussive Slam, you can still receive its debuff. Avoid its line if you are not the active tank!
  • In MythicMythic: you will be debuffed by Infused Fallout Icon Infused Fallout and must touch another player to remove it; this will generally be your cotank. Remember to avoid the Reactive Bedrock Icon Reactive Bedrock formed at your feet when the debuff is removed!

For more information, please refer to our Terros guide.

5.

The Primal Council

5.1.

Talent Adjustments

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.

  • BwQAP1tpyZCKK6xz/PGFSDdghBAAAAAAQAAAAQShSLJJQSSpRAAAASJHQJJJRCBJJJJtEgWkIt0KhA
5.2.

Tips

  • Kadros Icewrath and Dathea Stormlash will be annoying to move due to primarily casting Frost Spike Icon Frost Spike and Lightning Bolt Icon 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 Icon Crush.
  • You will need to run into Scorched Ground Icon Scorched Ground during each Primal Blizzard Icon 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 Icon Touch of Death can be incredibly useful against any player trapped in a Frost Tomb Icon Frost Tomb.

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

6.

Sennarth, the Cold Breath

6.1.

Talent Adjustments

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.

  • BwQAP1tpyZCKK6xz/PGFSDdghBAAAAAAQAAAAQShSLJJQSSpdABAAAIlEFJJRCBJJJJtEARi0SrEC
6.2.

Tips

  • You can use Roll Icon Roll, Transcendence Icon Transcendence, and specific parts of the terrain to avoid death from Gossamer Burst Icon Gossamer Burst rather than needing to stand in any Sticky Webbing Icon Sticky Webbing. Alternatively, Tiger's Lust Icon Tiger's Lust can be used to remove the Sticky Webbing debuff before you or another player are Wrapped in Webs Icon 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 Icon 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.

7.

Dathea, Ascended

7.1.

Talent Adjustments

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 Icon Chi Burst MythicMythic, however.

7.2.

Tips

  • 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 Icon Diverted Essence from the Volatile Infusers as soon as possible to limit Dathea's strength.
  • Be careful to not receive Conductive Mark Icon 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 Icon Zephyr Slam; be careful to not be knocked off the platform by its knockback!
  • Transcendence Icon 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.

8.

Kurog Grimtotem

8.1.

Talent Adjustments

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.

8.2.

Tips

  • 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 Icon 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 Icon 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 Icon Enveloping Earth. Save a defensive cooldown for its application.

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

9.

Broodkeeper Diurna

9.1.

Talent Adjustments

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.

  • BwQAP1tpyZCKK6xz/PGFSDdghBAAAAAAQAAAAQShSLJJQSSpRAAAASJHQJJJRCBJJJJtEgWkIt0KhA
9.2.

Tips

  • 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 MythicMythic difficulty. However, due to Mortal Stoneclaws Icon Mortal Stoneclaws applying Mortal Wounds Icon 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 Icon Broodkeeper's Bond.
  • Be mindful of any Tarasek Earthweaver adds, as their Burrowing Strike Icon Burrowing Strike will reduce your Armor, while the hard-to-see ground effect of Tremors Icon 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 Icon 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 Icon 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.

10.

Raszageth the Storm-Eater

10.1.

Talent Adjustments

As Raszageth's encounter largely features single-target fighting, the generic build will suffice.

10.2.

Tips

For more information, please refer to our Raszageth the Storm-Eater guide.
