General Information

On this page, you will find tips, tricks, and strategies tailored to your Frost Mage 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 Frost-Mage-specific information to deal with each boss in the Sepulcher of the First Ones raid. This page assumes you already have a basic understanding of the fights, and focused primarily on how to do the fights as a Frost-Mage specifically.

2.

Talents

For the most part, the talent options do not change except for Terros, who is a pure single-target fight. Every other boss has some form of cleave at various points in the fight, enough to beat the raw single-target build. Likewise, our tier bonuses have absolutely no impact on playstyle.

3.

Eranog

3.1.

Tips

Flamerift Icon Flamerift cannot be Ice Block Icon Ice Blocked off. Make sure that Blizzard Icon Blizzard is ticking on the add stack after Flamerift for the slows to start on them.

Incinerate Icon Incinerate apparently can be Ice Block Icon Ice Blocked; however, if this is happening. The rest of your raid is very likely dead. It might make for wipe recovery if you happen to be an Engineer.

For more information, please refer to our Eranog guide.

4.

Terros

This is a single-target fight, unlike the rest of the raid. You can easily import the single target talent tree below by clicking 'Copy Export String' and then importing it in-game.

4.1.

Tips

Ice Block Icon Ice Block can be used against Rock Blast Icon Rock Blast on Normal and Heroic, but not on Mythic. Attempting to solo it on Mythic will destroy the raid.

Alter Time Icon Alter Time is a handy button to deal with soaking Rock Blast Icon Rock Blast, as it allows you to snap back out of the explosion that happens afterward and heal up.

For more information, please refer to our Terros guide.

5.

The Primal Council

5.1.

Tips

Ice Block Icon Ice Block can allow you to solo Meteor Axes Icon Meteor Axes.

You may also choose to immune Conductive Mark Icon Conductive Mark, although given how easy this is to get rid of, the cases this will be useful will be extremely rare.

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

6.

Sennarth, the Cold Breath

6.1.

Tips

Make sure to hit the boss with your cleave if possible. The hitbox for the boss is gigantic, but make sure that you throw Frozen Orb Icon Frozen Orb and cast Blizzard Icon Blizzard in ways that they will be hitting the boss as well as the intended adds.

Alter Time Icon Alter Time can completely negate the forced movement effects by casting it before they go off and return instantly.

Wrapped in Webs Icon Wrapped in Webs is a stun, and can be Blink Icon Blinked out of.

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

7.

Dathea, Ascended

7.1.

Tips

Alter Time Icon Alter Time and Blink Icon Blink can both negate knockbacks on this fight.

Thunderbolt Icon Thunderbolt appears to be able to be removed with Ice Block Icon Ice Block and Mirror Image Icon Mirror Image is a great long-duration cooldown to help when you cannot remove it.

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

8.

Kurog Grimtotem

8.1.

Tips

Frigid Torrent Icon Frigid Torrent's stun can be Blink Icon Blinked.

Absolute Zero Icon Absolute Zero can be solo soaked with Ice Block Icon Ice Block.

You cannot remove Searing Carnage Icon Searing Carnage, although you could use Ice Block Icon Ice Block to immune the damage itself and the movement requirements.

Thunder Strike Icon Thunder Strike should be soaked with Alter Time Icon Alter Time cast beforehand for the instant heal-up afterward.

Neither Lightning Crash Icon Lightning Crash nor Enveloping Earth Icon Enveloping Earth's debuffs can be removed with Ice Block Icon Ice Block.

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

9.

Broodkeeper Diurna

9.1.

Tips

Mage's superior mobility allows us to deal with Greatstaff's Wrath Icon Greatstaff's Wrath effectively. Alter Time Icon Alter Time behind an egg, Blink Icon Blink into the staff and activate it, then Alter Time back behind the egg while you continue to DPS as the beam catches up to you.

All the stuns in this fight can be Blink Icon Blinked out of.

For more information, please refer to our Broodkeeper Diurna guide.

10.

Raszageth the Storm-Eater

10.1.

Tips

Blink Icon Blink and Alter Time Icon Alter Time are invaluable for getting Static Charge Icon Static Charge and Fulminating Charge Icon Fulminating Charge out of the raid and back into position quickly.

Volatile Sparks can be dealt with as a Mage in multiple ways. Counterspell Icon Counterspell obviously works, as does Spellsteal Icon Spellsteal to strip them of Volatile Icon Volatile. Dragon's Breath Icon Dragon's Breath and Blast Wave Icon Blast Wave both work, as well as being AoE. Blast Wave, in particular, can hit multiple people's Sparks if positioned closely.

Sadly, Frost does not have many strong cooldowns for Focused Charge Icon Focused Charge, but try and have at least Rune of Power Icon Rune of Power for it, if not Icy Veins Icon Icy Veins itself.

For more information, please refer to our Raszageth the StormEater guide.
