Welcome to our guide to the Halls of Infusion dungeon in the Dragonflight World of Warcraft expansion. This guide will cover everything you need to know about the dungeon, including how to get to it, its layout, the trash and boss mechanics within, and its loot.

1.

Getting into Halls of Infusion

Halls of Infusion is a level 70 dungeon that can be found in the newly introduced zone of Thaldraszus in the Dragon Isles (marked with blue on the minimap below). The nearest flight point for both Alliance and Horde players is Gelikyr Post, Thaldraszus (marked with yellow on the minimap below). Upon landing, head to the east where you will see the entrance of the dungeon once you get closer to Tyrhold ruins.

Halls of Infusion Entrance Location

This guide will focus on an extensive overview of the dungeon, providing vital information to complete it across all difficulties (Normal, HeroicHeroic, and MythicMythic). We will cover all 4 boss fights supported by the most notable trash enemies in the dungeon and their important abilities. If you would like to learn about the other Dragonflight Dungeons or the upcoming Mythic+ season instead, please see our overviews linked below. Otherwise without further ado, let us begin!

Unlock Unique Bonuses in Halls of Infusion

Halls of Infusion Engineering Interactive There are two bonuses available in this dungeon, one from Engineering and one from Herbalism. Below you can find more information on what buffs you can acquire and where are they are located:

  • Limited Immortality Device is located in the Infuser's Rotunda — check the screenshot below — and there is only one of its kind.
  • You must have at least 25 skill in Dragon Isles Engineering in order to activate it.
  • Only one member from your team is required to have the profession and upon "unlocking" the device, it will grant each member of your party the Limited Immortality Icon Limited Immortality buff lasting for 60 minutes.
  • This buff will prevent you from dying a single time when you take lethal damage and it will disappear as soon as it procs.
  • Halls of Infusion Herbalism Interactive Infused Mushroom can be found in the Intake Reservoirs (to the left after defeating Watcher Irideus) and in the Khajin's Gambit area on the way to the third boss of the dungeon, Khajin the Unyielding).
  • You must have at least 25 skill in Dragon Isles Herbalism to activate one.
  • Only one member from your team is required to have the profession and upon interacting with the Infused Mushroom, it will grant each member from your party the Cleansing Spores Icon Cleansing Spores buff for 30 minutes.
  • This buff will cure one application of a PoisonPoison or DiseaseDisease effect every 5 seconds.

Aquatic Intake and Watcher Irideus

4.1.

Notable Trash before Watcher Irideus

  • Interrupt the Earth Shield Icon Earth Shield coming from Primalist Geomancer. If the shield goes through, it will heal a random mob and reduce their damage taken by 10%. In addition, sidestep the Seismic Slam Icon Seismic Slam ground animation at all costs (it is 5 yards wide).
  • Refti Defender will be the first "tank-buster" trash mob you will face in this dungeon, because of its Gushing Wound Icon Gushing Wound BleedBleed effect and Spear Flurry Icon Spear Flurry ability. Use your remaining interrupts for Demoralizing Shout Icon Demoralizing Shout to prevent him from decreasing your damage output.
  • Containment Beam Icon Containment Beam, coming from Containment Apparatus, is the most important channel cast to watch out for; it will deal high damage and immobilize you until the channel is over. In addition, the mob has Expulse Icon Expulse, a heavy AoE spell that deals damage to everyone within 20 yards, hence why you want to stop it at all costs!
  • Beware of chaining Primalist Ravagers with any other trash enemies due to its Tailwind Icon Tailwind aura. They also have an important Blasting Gust Icon Blasting Gust cast to interrupt. Failing to do so will deal damage to everyone within 40 yards.
4.2.

Watcher Irideus Boss Guide

Halls of Infusion Watcher Irideus

Watcher Irideus's boss fight is a two-stage encounter, each of them being completely different to tackle. Stage Two: Watcher's Last Stand begins once the boss begins to channel his Ablative Barrier Icon Ablative Barrier. For more information, check the detailed guide below:

4.2.1.

All Roles

4.2.2.

Tank

4.2.3.

Healer

  • Prepare to use healing cooldowns once Watcher Irideus is casting Static Surge Icon Static Surge.
  • The boss will periodically apply 3 Power Overload Icon Power Overload MagicMagic debuffs to your party members. You can either dispel it or let it expire, but be aware as soon as it does, it will trigger a follow-up spell called Power Field Icon Power Field.
5.

Goliath's Lair and Gulping Goliath

5.1.

Notable Trash before Gulping Goliath

Upon defeating Watcher Irideus, you will have the option to go to the right or to the left. I recommend you take the left path (see the screenshot with the green arrow), since you will be able to collect Infused Mushroom. Here is what you should know about the trash mobs that can be found in this area:

  • Stop the Elemental Focus Icon Elemental Focus cast from Primalist Shocktrooper, or else they will transform their Lightning Blast Icon Lightning Blast (instant casts on the highest threat target) into Chain Lightning.
  • There are going to be Stealth Icon Stealthed Skulking Zealots around the area that will stun the first target that they get in combat with Cheap Shot Icon Cheap Shot. As a Healer, be ready to top up the health of your Tank, since they will be unable to use their active mitigation during the stun. The longer the mob takes to defeat, the harder it will hit due to its Rising Squall Icon Rising Squall passive, so watch out!
  • Interrupt the Dazzle Icon Dazzle frontal disorient from Dazzling Dragonfly at all costs. You can also sidestep it or outrange it by moving at least 10 yards away if you want to save your interrupt for more important casts.
  • There are going to be some Curious Swoglets around the area. They are harmless frogs that have only one ability known as Gulp Swog Toxin Icon Gulp Swog Toxin. This PoisonPoison effect stacks and it instantly kills you upon reaching 10 applications. Having an Infused Mushroom buff will save you a lot of headaches here!
  • Interrupt the Pyretic Burst Icon Pyretic Burst coming from Flamecaller Aymi. Avoid being hit by the Molten Subduction Icon Molten Subduction ground animation. The mob will heal itself with Cauterize Icon Cauterize, so if you have any healing reduction effects, apply them to it!
  • Squallbringer Cyraz is another unique mob that you will only meet once in this dungeon, just like Flamecaller Aymi. Your tank must gather threat from the nearby Zephyrlings once they are spawned with Zephyr's Call Icon Zephyr's Call.
5.2.

Gulping Goliath Boss Guide

Halls of Infusion Gulping Goliath
5.2.1.

All Roles

  • Sidestep the Cave In Icon Cave In ground animation.
  • Gulping Goliath Curious Swoglet Quickly nuke the Curious Swoglets; they will leave a stackable Gulp Swog Toxin Icon Gulp Swog Toxin PoisonPoison effect on you that will instantly kill you upon reaching 10 stacks.
  • Once the boss casts Gulp Icon Gulp, select one player from your party to be deliberately "consumed" to prevent him from getting the Hangry Icon Hangry EnrageEnrage effect, On MythicMythic Difficulty you cannot dispel the Hangry Icon Hangry EnrageEnrage effect, unlike Normal and HeroicHeroic! Keep in mind once you are Gulp Icon Gulped you will take initial damage and get 3 applications of Gulp Swog Toxin Icon Gulp Swog Toxin!
  • Sidestep the Belly Slam Icon Belly Slam ground animation at all cost.
5.2.2.

Tank

5.2.3.

Healer

  • Top your teammates quickly once Gulping Goliath is casting Overpowering Croak Icon Overpowering Croak.
  • Spot heal the target that gets Gulp Icon Gulped; here is a good place to use your external defensive cooldowns!
  • Use healing cooldowns once the boss is casting Toxic Effluvia Icon Toxic Effluvia, as the AoE damage will become especially dangerous if the boss is enhanced by Hangry Icon Hangry effect.
6.

Khajin's Gambit and Khajin the Unyielding

6.1.

Notable Trash before Khajin the Unyielding

Upon defeating Gulping Goliath, continue down the river toward the third boss of the dungeon, Khajin the Unyielding. Remember, alongside the river, there will be a few locations where you can find Infused Mushroom! The entire area leading toward Khajin the Unyielding is packed with Proto dragons and caster mobs that will empower them. Here are more details on what to expect:

6.2.

Khajin the Unyielding Boss Guide

Halls of Infusion Khajin the Unyielding
6.2.1.

All Roles

6.2.2.

Tank

  • Bring the boss closer to any existing Ice Boulder Icon Ice Boulders to increase the damage uptime of your melee DPS when they exit melee to hide during Hailstorm Icon Hailstorm casts.
6.2.3.

Healer

  • Throughout the whole fight, players will have the Polar Winds Icon Polar Winds debuff on them; do not forget to top them up frequently!
  • Top up the health of the party member that is targeted by Frost Shock Icon Frost Shock and dispel the follow-up slow effect.
7.

Infusion Chamber and Primal Tsunami

7.1.

Notable Trash before Primal Tsunami

Once you have defeated Khajin the Unyielding, the last gate of the dungeon will open, allowing you to enter the Infusion Chamber where you will find Primal Tsunami. Along the way, you will face some familiar foes like Glacial Proto-Dragon and Primalist Icecaller paired with several new mob types. Once you approach the bridge leading to the final boss, there will be a constant water swirl coming either from the left or from the right. If you fail to dodge it, you will get knocked back. Here is more information on the trash mobs you will face on the way:

  • Aqua Rager is the first unique mob you will face. It has only one important cast to watch out for and that is its Boiling Rage Icon Boiling Rage EnrageEnrage effect. Once it reaches 20% health, it will begin casting Tidal Divergence Icon Tidal Divergence, dividing itself into 4 Aqualings. It is a 6 sec long cast, so it will be quite easy to interrupt once you see it!
  • Once you approach the end of the bridge, the water swirls will stop and Infuser Sariya will be available to be attacked. She will have unavoidable AoE damage coming from Inundate Icon Inundate (non-interruptible) and a Aqueous Barrier Icon Aqueous Barrier absorb shield cast that must be interrupted at all times. Finally, get away from her Flash Flood Icon Flash Flood AoE cast, as it will knock you back and deal damage to you!
7.2.

Primal Tsunami Boss Guide

Halls of Infusion Primal Tsunami

Primal Tsunami Phase 2 The Primal Tsunami boss encounter has two stages: Stage One: Violent Swells and Stage Two: Infused Waters. During Stage One, you will be fighting on the main platform (from where you pull the boss) until the boss reaches 100 Energy. Once that happens, it will cast Cast Away Icon Cast Away and begin Stage Two. During this stage, you will be sent back to the beginning of the bridge (where you have entered originally) and need to make your way back to the boss. Keep in mind, your team will be split in two (3 players in one corridor and 2 players in the other) and the water swirls (Crashing Tsunami Icon Crashing Tsunami) will be present once again! Here is a more detailed breakdown of the fight:

7.2.1.

All Roles

  • Avoid being hit by the Infused Globule Icon Infused Globule ground spheres during Stage One and Stage Two. Failing to do so will deal high initial damage and trigger a secondary Waterlogged Icon Waterlogged debuff.
  • Primal Tsunami Infused Globule During Stage Two, avoid the incoming Crashing Tsunami Icon Crashing Tsunami. Once you get to the boss, you will have to deal with 2 Primalist Infusers and defeat them in order to get back to Stage One.
  • Speaking about Primalist Infusers, it is important to interrupt the Infuse Icon Infuse ability since it empowers the boss. In addition, watch out for the Inundate Icon Inundate cast!
  • On MythicMythic difficulty, the boss will cast an additional ability called Rogue Waves Icon Rogue Waves; dodge the incoming waves!
7.2.2.

Tank

  • Be present in melee at all times to prevent Undertow Icon Undertow from being cast.
  • Use active mitigation once the boss is casting Squall Buffet Icon Squall Buffet. Not only will it knock you back, but it will also apply a follow up debuff of Focused Deluge Icon Focused Deluge. Your goal is to get back to melee as quickly as you can to prevent it from casting Undertow Icon Undertow.
7.2.3.

Healer

  • Periodically, Primal Tsunami will cast Tempest's Fury Icon Tempest's Fury, dealing AoE damage to all players. Be ready to top up the health of your teammates!
  • Dispel the slow effect from Waterlogged Icon Waterlogged as quickly as you can.
