General Information

On this page, you will find tips, tricks, and strategies tailored to your Protection Paladin for each boss of the following raid: Vault of the Incarnates. All our content is updated for World of Warcraft — Dragonflight 10.0.5.

Introduction

Below, you can find class and spec-specific advice for every fight in Vault of the Incarnates. If you are looking for a general overview of the Raid that is not spec-specific, check out our dedicated Vault of the Incarnates guides.

On this page, you will find Protection Paladin-specific information to deal with each boss in the Vault of the Incarnates raid. These are not complete encounter guides but rather provide specific tips for doing the bosses as a Protection Paladin.

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 Protection Paladin and how you can deal with each fight as best as possible.

Dathea, Ascended

7.1.

Talents

For this boss, I suggest you use the default build at the top of this page.

7.2.

Tips

  • Swap after 2-3 stacks of Zephyr Slam Icon Zephyr Slam.
  • The knockback from Zephyr Slam Icon Zephyr Slam increases in distance for each stack you have. After 3 stacks, you will fly off the platform. However, you can get knocked into a tornado to negate this.
  • Keep an eye on the locations of tornadoes and be mindful of where they are moving to when Crosswinds Icon Crosswinds is cast.
  • Heroic/Mythic: Have Divine Toll Icon Divine Toll ready for when you land on the platform to gather all of the adds.

8.

Kurog Grimtotem

8.1.

Talents

For this boss, I suggest you use the default build at the top of this page.

8.2.

Tips

  • Keep Kurog near an altar (not the middle of the room) in Phase 1. If he is in the middle of the room, he will gain stacks of all 4 elemental buffs and deal serious damage to the raid!
  • Move into two altars each time you enter Phase 1 to ensure the raid does not get overwhelmed by the damage from Kurog's ticking damage and to guarantee which adds spawn in the intermission.
  • Sundering Strike Icon Sundering Strike is a 1-stack swap.
  • Ensure Sundering Strike Icon Sundering Strike is pointed away from the raid and if you are not tanking the boss, to not stand in it, as it deals damage and applies a DoT to anyone hit.
  • Taunt immediately after your co-tank is hit with Sundering Strike Icon Sundering Strike to prevent Kurog from chasing them.
  • Heroic/Mythic: The stun from Icy Tempest Icon Icy Tempest can be prevented or broken with Divine Shield Icon Divine Shield. Avoid being hit by these, though, as it deals a lot of damage.
  • Mythic: An elemental is spawned each time Kurog moves into a new altar. These adds cast a conal attack similar to Kurog. Face these away from the raid.

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

Broodkeeper Diurna

9.1.

Talents

For this boss, there are two roles to play, the boss tank and the add tank. The boss tank moves the boss around the room and breaks eggs to get the raid into Phase 2 cleanly. The add tank roams around the edge of the room to kill add waves as they spawn.

If you are the add tank, I suggest you use the default build at the top of this page.

If you are the boss tank, I suggest you use the below build.
