General Information

On this page, you will find tips, tricks, and strategies tailored to your Feral Druid 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 Feral-Druid-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 Feral Druids and what you can do to deal with each fight as best as possible.

2.

Talent Cheatsheet

There are currently three builds that see use within the raid: one focused on pure single-target, one on pure AoE, and a more hybridized version. Due to how frequently it is used, the hybrid build is recommended below, but links to all three builds are provided here as well:

2.1.

Build Import Codes

Below are quick import codes that can be used for 3 sample builds, but each boss will also have a bespoke link tailored to the boss below based on recommendations. You can also use our Talent page to find out more about some of the builds being suggested here and why.

  • Single Target: BcGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQEIRkkkkSKRUSSikEAAAAAAKAIJAAJJJJkQJhWiAAAAAAAJgCA
  • AoE: BcGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIJplmEikIpk2BQJJJRSAAAAAAoAgkAAkkkkQClEaJCAAAAAAkAKAA
  • Mythic Hybrid: BcGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQSapJRSSikSKQJJJRSAAAAAAoAgkAAkkkkQClEaJCAAAAAAkAKAA
2.2.

Hybrid Talent Build

3.

Eranog

While boss damage is most important here, some adds need to be dealt with and being able to contribute and make use of them for a small amount of extra funnel is useful.

3.1.

Talents

You can opt out of some of the AoE talents if you so desire, especially in Normal/Heroic because adds are killed so quickly, but the general recommendation is a hybrid build to deal with both the boss and adds:

  • BcGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQSapJRkkkkSKQJJJRSAAAAAAoAgkAAkkkkQClEaJCAAAAAAkAKAA
3.2.

Tips

  • Typhoon Icon Typhoon and Ursol's Vortex Icon Ursol's Vortex are useful here to keep the Flamescale Tarasek grouped and under control while they are being killed.
  • Tiger Dash Icon Tiger Dash is a good choice here to position your Flamerift Icon Flamerifts and move to add spawns during the intermission.
  • Barkskin Icon Barkskin and Survival Instincts Icon Survival Instincts are best saved for situations where you are either fixated by the adds or need to move through Lava Flow Icon Lava Flow pools as these can be quite dangerous.
  • While the Primal Flame is important to kill in the intermission, you should have more than enough time to do so without needing to save any cooldowns.
3.3.

Mythic Specific Tips

  • Make sure to interrupt the Flamescale Captain's Pyroblast Icon Pyroblast cast.
  • AoE is more valuable here as adds tend to live longer, especially the Captain, so the Hybrid build gets more room to shine.
  • Due to needing to kill two Primal Flame adds in the intermission, having some shorter cooldowns to commit, such as Feral Frenzy Icon Feral Frenzy, is a good idea here.

For more information, please refer to our Eranog guide.

4.

Terros

Terros is the only pure single-target fight within the raid without any potential extra adds, so a purely focused build for that purpose is recommended.

4.1.

Talents

There is very little room to deviate from the recommended single-target build here solely because no extra enemies to capitalize on are present:

  • BcGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQEIRkkkkSaRUSSikEAAAAAAKAkIAAJJJJSClEaJCAAAAAAkAAA
4.2.

Tips

4.3.

Mythic Specific Tips

  • In Mythic, the fight remains largely the same aside from a higher damage requirement and more damage taken, so more defensive planning is needed. Improved Stampeding Roar Icon Improved Stampeding Roar is a stronger consideration to help the raid move out of Shattering Impact Icon Shattering Impact baits.

For more information, please refer to our Terros guide.

5.

The Primal Council

The entire fight is spent with 4 targets up, usually stacked together. As such, a full AoE build is strongly recommended here.

5.1.

Talents

There is not much room to deviate from the recommended build here, as the fight is a reasonably straightforward AoE from start to finish:

  • BcGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIJplmEikIpk2BQJJJRSAAAAAAoAgkAAkkkkQClEaJCAAAAAAkAKAA
5.2.

Tips

5.3.

Mythic Specific Tips

  • Minimal changes here on Mythic, and it is arguably easier mechanically than Heroic due to there being fewer Fire patches, making the room less chaotic.

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

6.

Sennarth, the Cold Breath

While boss damage is ultimately the most important here, there are add spawns and enemies that need to be killed efficiently without necessarily requiring a lot of AoE. Therefore, a hybridized single-target build with access to Primal Wrath Icon Primal Wrath is recommended here.

6.1.

Talents

While you can opt into dealing pure single-target and opt out of dealing any add damage if your raid can manage it, we recommend a more versatile one for efficient damage on all targets here to leverage the funnel that can be gained from them:

  • BcGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQSapJRSSikSKQJJJRSAAAAAAoAgkAAkkkkQClEaJCAAAAAAkAKAA
6.2.

Tips

Mythic Specific Tips

  • The fight is largely the same as Heroic, aside from having to deal with a lot more Icy Ground Icon Icy Ground and the addition of Gusting Rime Icon Gusting Rime during platform transitions.
  • Aim to make sure you have Incarnation: Avatar of Ashamane Icon Incarnation: Avatar of Ashamane for each Frostbreath Arachnid spawn if possible, as these adds to die extremely quickly on Mythic.
  • For the final phase, when you tend to be quite clumped, you can use Typhoon Icon Typhoon to knock dying Caustic Spiderlings away to avoid unnecessary raid damage.

For more information, please refer to our Sennarth, the Cold Breath guide.

7.

Dathea, Ascended

On both Heroic and especially Mythic difficulty, this boss heavily focuses on add damage in bursts, so some AoE talents are required, despite spending a lot of time on just the boss. Because of this, a hybridized build is selected to be able to deal with the platform and contribute meaningful single-target.

7.1.

Talents

Some options can be deviated from if you are not assigned to platforms or are on Normal difficulty and instead take a pure single-target build, but generally we recommend the following:

  • BcGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQSapJRSSikSKQJJJRSAAAAAAoAgkAAkkkkQClEaJCAAAAAAkAKAA
7.2.

Tips

  • Stampeding Roar Icon Stampeding Roar is useful here to help allies stay out of the Cyclone Icon Cyclone pull in.
  • Barkskin Icon Barkskin and Survival Instincts Icon Survival Instincts are best saved for when on the platform as damage can get quite high toward the end.
  • Typhoon Icon Typhoon paired with Ursol's Vortex Icon Ursol's Vortex can be used on the platform to interrupt the Thunder Caller adds and stack them up for more efficient AoE.
  • Similarly, Incapacitating Roar Icon Incapacitating Roar can be used to follow this up to keep them locked down.
  • Skull Bash Icon Skull Bash and Wild Charge Icon Wild Charge can be used to counteract the Blowback Icon Blowback or if you are hit by Cyclone Icon Cyclone to stay on the boss if you are not aiming to be sent to a platform.
  • Be careful using these displacements; however, if you are targeted by Conductive Mark Icon Conductive Mark then you can easily spread this by moving too wildly around the room.
7.2.1.

Mythic Specific Tips

  • The add platform spawns roughly 90 seconds into the fight, making it extremely tight to get Incarnation: Avatar of Ashamane Icon Incarnation: Avatar of Ashamane ready again - but possible. You should aim to have cooldowns ready for this platform to get it over with as quickly as possible.
  • Especially on Mythic, you should aim to funnel Apex Predator's Craving Icon Apex Predator's Craving procs into the Volatile Infuser while AoEing the adds, as this is the add that needs to die efficiently to get back to the main platform.

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

Kurog Grimtotem

Kurog has different builds depending on if you are doing Normal/Heroic or Mythic, as the number of targets significantly changes. The former is predominantly single-target with some add phases, so a mostly single-target build is used. At the same time, the latter spends most of the time with at least two targets, sometimes more so using a hybridized build to deal with everything.

8.1.

Talents

The two builds linked are dependent on the difficulty of the encounter you are doing, as the number of targets changes:

  • Normal/Heroic: BcGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQSapJRSSikSKQJJJRSAAAAAAoAgkAAkkkkQClEaJCAAAAAAkAKAA
  • Mythic: BcGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIJplmEJSikSKQJJJRSAAAAAAoAgkAAkkkkQClEaJCAAAAAAkAKAA
8.2.

Tips

  • During the intermission, you can make use of the dying adds from the Fire and Earth adds to reset Predator Icon Predator.
  • Stampeding Roar Icon Stampeding Roar is useful to help the raid get out of Erupting Bedrock when in the earth phase.
  • Be careful using it in the Fire phase however, as additional speed during Searing Carnage Icon Searing Carnage can cause some players to run ahead and cut off a path.
  • Make sure to interrupt Frost Binds Icon Frost Binds from the Frozen Destroyer in the intermission.
  • Self-healing via Predatory Swiftness Icon Predatory Swiftness and assisting the raid with Nature's Vigil Icon Nature's Vigil is useful when the raid has Enveloping Earth Icon Enveloping Earth applied to them.
8.3.

Mythic Specific Tips

  • In Mythic, there are virtually always two targets, and as such, taking Double-Clawed Rake Icon Double-Clawed Rake and Primal Wrath Icon Primal Wrath to easily maintain Bleeds on both is advised.
  • Try to save some resources ready to burst down the Earth Breaker add waves, as these need to die relatively quickly to relieve tank pressure.
  • Have some strong defensives such as Survival Instincts Icon Survival Instincts for the second intermission if you are targeted by Violent Upheaval if you have to move out of the Freezing Tempest Icon Freezing Tempest safe zone.

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

Broodkeeper Diurna

The decision for your build on this encounter hinges entirely on one question: Are you on add duty or boss duty? This will dictate whether you select single-target or AoE talents, as you will spend most of the encounter doing one or the other.

9.1.

Talents

Because of the different roles that can be taken during this encounter, we have 3 separate builds depending on what you are doing, so select accordingly:

  • Single Target: BcGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQEIRkkkkSKRUSSikEAAAAAAKAIJAAJJJJkQJhWiAAAAAAAJgCA
  • AoE: BcGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIJplmEikIpk2BQJJJRSAAAAAAoAgkAAkkkkQClEaJCAAAAAAkAKAA
  • Mythic Hybrid: BcGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQSapJRSSIpkyBQJJJRSAAAAAAoAgkAAkkkkQClEaJCAAAAAAkAKAA
9.2.

Tips

  • The first add wave will spawn roughly 40 seconds into the encounter, so plan your cooldowns accordingly. Some will burn the boss early to get ahead, and if you have the damage to deal with the first wave, you can do so.
  • Stampeding Roar Icon Stampeding Roar and Improved Stampeding Roar Icon Improved Stampeding Roar is very useful here to move around the giant room, which the add group will frequently be doing if you are assigned to this.
  • Interrupt Static Jolt Icon Static Jolt cast by Draconic Stormbringer.
  • Use Nature's Vigil Icon Nature's Vigil during the Chilling Tantrum Icon Chilling Tantrum casts.
  • Make use of your funnel ability via Apex Predator's Craving Icon Apex Predator's Craving by targeting the Juvenile Frost Proto-Dragon when active, as these are the most dangerous high health enemies.
  • Shapeshifting out of Cat Form Icon Cat Form will break the root and remove the absorb shield from Frozen Shroud.
  • Typhoon Icon Typhoon paired with Ursol's Vortex Icon Ursol's Vortex can interrupt the Primalist Mage groups, and group them up better.
  • Tiger Dash Icon Tiger Dash is an option here against Wild Charge Icon Wild Charge to move to add packs earlier, and get out quickly if targeted by Empowered Greatstaff of the Broodkeeper Icon Empowered Greatstaff of the Broodkeeper.
  • You can make use of Predator Icon Predator resets by applying Thrash Icon Thrash to the roots spawned by Frozen Shroud Icon Frozen Shroud.
9.2.1.

Mythic Specific Tips

  • Due to roughly half of the entire encounter being pure single-target on the boss itself, even if you are on add duty, we recommend taking a hybridized build to be able to contribute both in Phase 1 while dealing with the AoE requirement, and boss damage in the final phase.
  • For more information, please refer to our Broodkeeper Diurna guide.

    Raszageth the Storm-Eater

    Raszageth is a long fight with a variety of different, desirable damage profiles As such, there is a lot of customization that can be done with your talent build , depending on your group composition or what it is struggling with.

    10.1.

    Talents

    A recommended sample build is as follows, but the tips section will cover additional considerations:

    • BcGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQSapJRSSikSKQJJJRSAAAAAAoAgkAAkkkkQClEKJCAAAAAAkAKAA
    10.2.

    Tips

    • Convoke the Spirits Icon Convoke the Spirits and Ashamane's Guidance Icon Ashamane's Guidance are considerations here to deal with the Stormsurge Icon Stormsurge shields in Phase 2 should you need it.
    • The recommended build is hybridized, so it has some AoE available to deal with the adds spawned in both intermissions. These need to be burst down quickly so having Primal Wrath Icon Primal Wrath is important, even though it comes at the cost of boss damage in the main phase.
    • Typhoon Icon Typhoon, Incapacitating Roar Icon Incapacitating Roar and Skull Bash Icon Skull Bash are all efficient ways of dealing with Volatile Current Icon Volatile Current adds both for you and allies with AoE options.
    • Stampeding Roar Icon Stampeding Roar and the follow-up Improved Stampeding Roar Icon Improved Stampeding Roar is useful in the fight, especially on Mythic, to resist the boss's pushbacks and move around the massive arena to avoid Lightning Devastation Icon Lightning Devastation.
    • Having some defense prepared for Volatile Current Icon Volatile Current if any overlap, or if targeted by Static Charge Icon Static Charge is a good idea here.
    • You should always take Wild Charge Icon Wild Charge here to counteract Tempest Wing Icon Tempest Wing in Phase 2.
    • Aim to save burst damage (Berserk Icon Berserk, Convoke the Spirits Icon Convoke the Spirits if taken) for the Stormsurge Icon Stormsurge shield.
    • Cleave from the Surging Ruiner in the intermission whenever possible to get rid of the dangerous aura as soon as possible.
    • Typhoon Icon Typhoon the Stormseeker Acolytes ahead to where you are going or Skull Bash Icon Skull Bash them when moving away from Lightning Devastation Icon Lightning Devastation in the first intermission to keep uptime and avoid unnecessary casts going through.
