To make it easy to navigate the guide, we have split it into 3 pages:



The Maiden of Vigilance is the seventh boss housed in the Tomb of Sargeras.

Charged by Aegwynn to defend the Tomb of Sargeras, the Maiden of Vigilance has stood watch for hundreds of years. Yet, the guardian did not forsee what effect the avatar's seeping fel energy would have on this titan construct. Slowly warped by this maleficence, the Maiden now seeks to destroy any in her path.



The fight against the Maiden of Vigilance is comprised of 2 phases. The first phase, Divide and Conquer, encompasses the main part of the encounter. The second phase, Watcher's Wrath, will serve as an intermission of sorts where the Maiden will jump away and shield herself, absorbing a fixed amount of damage and beginning a channel than deals increasing damage with each tick, finally wiping the raid unavoidably at 30 stacks. If the raid manages to break the shield in time, the channel can be interrupted and the first phase resumes. Overall this constitutes a simple but punishing encounter that requires clean mechanical play and strong numbers output.

Here is a preview from the LFR version of the fight on PTR:





The Maiden of Vigilance will infuse each raid member with either Light Infusion Icon Light Infusion or Fel Infusion Icon Fel Infusion. Taking damage from an ability that does not match your Infusion Icon Infusion will trigger Unstable Soul Icon Unstable Soul.



  • Avoid taking any damage from abilities of the opposite Infusion Icon Infusion or Unstable Soul Icon Unstable Soul will be triggered.
  • Jump into the pit in the center of the room if you are affected by the Unstable Soul Icon Unstable Soul debuff to avoid damaging the raid (due to Aegwynn's Ward Icon Aegwynn's Ward).
  • Collect Essence Fragments Icon Essence Fragments matching your Infusion Icon Infusion during Phase 2 to stack a damage and healing buff to help break the Titanic Bulwark Icon Titanic Bulwark.
  • Help the tanks soak the frontal cleave matching your Infusion Icon Infusion.


  • Perform a taunt swap when the Maiden switches between Hammer of Creation Icon Hammer of Creation and Hammer of Obliteration Icon Hammer of Obliteration so that the current tank has a debuff matching the current hammer (Fel Infusion Icon Fel Infusion for Obliteration and Light Infusion Icon Light Infusion for Creation).
  • Ensure players of the correct debuffs are in the conal cleave from the Hammer of Creation Icon Hammer of Creation and Hammer of Obliteration Icon Hammer of Obliteration.


  • Coordinate healing cooldowns as the damage from Wrath of the Creators Icon Wrath of the Creators increases.
  • Be ready to perform surgical healing when Mass Instability Icon Mass Instability occurs.


  • Prepare cooldowns to quickly break Titanic Bulwark Icon Titanic Bulwark in Phase 2.


Positioning during Phase 1 is determined by the Infusion Icon Infusion debuff. The raid should place markers on either side of the boss designating a Fel Infusion Icon Fel Infusion side and a Light Infusion Icon Light Infusion. Once Infusion Icon Infusion is cast, all players should form a loose spread on their designated side of the room. The tanks will trade the boss back and forth as the Maiden swaps between her hammers, allowing the raid to easily split the cleaves without necessitating movement.

Maiden of Virtue Positioning P1

During Phase 2, the boss will leap away, stunning players momentarily. The Maiden will shield herself and begin a channel, increasing in intensity with each tick that will wipe that raid after it reaches 30 stacks. The raid must collect Essence Fragments Icon Essence Fragments to boost their damage and healing and break the shield. Once the Titanic Bulwark Icon Titanic Bulwark is broken, the channel can be interrupted and Phase 1 positioning resumes.


Bloodlust/Heroism/Time Warp

We advise you to use Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust/Heroism Icon Heroism/Time Warp Icon Time Warp on the pull for maximum damage, however, it can also be used during the first Wrath of the Creators Icon Wrath of the Creators if your group is struggling to break the shield. Either usage is acceptable, although on the pull usage is favoured if safely cracking Titanic Bulwark Icon Titanic Bulwark is consistent.
