General Information

On this page, you will find tips, tricks, and strategies tailored to your Vengeance Demon Hunter for each boss of the following raid: Vault of the Incarnates. All our content is updated for World of Warcraft — Dragonflight 10.2.7.

1.

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 Vengeance Demon Hunter specific information to deal with each Boss in the Awakened Raids version of the Vault of the Incarnates raid. These are not complete encounter guides but instead here to provide particular tips and tricks, or alternative talents for each of the bosses as a Vengeance Demon Hunter.

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 Vengeance Demon Hunter and how you can deal with each fight as best as possible.

The build above is your generic single target talent tree. Each Boss below will note if it uses this build or a different one if anything should be tweaked. Running the same talent build for every single Boss is not optimal but this build will perform decently on all encounters.

2.

Eranog

2.1.

Talents

For Eranog, you can use the default talent build at the top of the page.

2.2.

Tips

  • Make sure to taunt swap when the Burning Wound Icon Burning Wound debuff expires.
  • Having Fiery Brand Icon Fiery Brand up on the Boss while not actively tanking can help you mitigate the Burning Wound Icon Burning Wound damage.
  • Make sure to damage any Flamescale Tarasek and Army of Flame Icon Army of Flame adds that spawn to apply Chaos Brand Icon Chaos Brand to them, helping your raid kill them faster.
  • The Boss casts a frontal Molten Cleave Icon Molten Cleave that deal damage to any players hit, so make sure to aim the Boss away from the raid.

For more information, please refer to our Eranog guide.

3.

Terros

3.1.

Talents

For Terros, I suggest you use a single-target variation of the build at the top of this page since the fight is a pure single-target fight.

3.2.

Tips

  • This Boss requires someone to be within melee range of the Boss at all times. Make sure that you stay in the melee range as much as possible.
  • Help your group soak the Rock Blast Icon Rock Blast damage.
  • Make sure to taunt swap after the boss cast Concussive Slam Icon Concussive Slam. This ability needs to be aimed at the rock pillars to break them.
  • Use Infernal Strike Icon Infernal Strike to move out of Resonating Annihilation Icon Resonating Annihilation.

For more information, please refer to our Terros guide.

4.

The Primal Council

4.1.

Talents

For The Primal Council, it is suggested you run the default build at the top of this page.

4.2.

Tips

  • The taunt swaps on this fight are Crush Icon Crush and Slashing Blaze Icon Slashing Blaze. Slashing Blaze Icon Slashing Blaze is a frontal cleave, so ensure it is aimed away from the raid. It is cast when Embar Firepath reaches 100 energy.
  • Make sure not to leap across friendly players when you or they are affected by Conductive Mark Icon Conductive Mark as this may cause the mark to spread.
  • Use Disrupt Icon Disrupt to interrupt Lightning Bolt Icon Lightning Bolt and Frost Spike Icon Frost Spike casts when available.
  • If you have Burning Alive Icon Burning Alive talented, you can try and spread it to as many targets as possible for damage reduction from all their abilities.

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

5.

Sennarth, the Cold Breath

5.1.

Talents

On this Boss, you run the default raid talent build at the top of the page.

5.2.

Tips

Managing the large spider add is a big priority. Make sure you taunt it and aim its frontal cast away from other players.

  • Movement is very important on this fight, and slows are frequent. Make sure to use Infernal Strike Icon Infernal Strike to move around efficiently or to cancel knockback and dragging effects.
  • If any member of your raid were to be trapped in Wrapped in Webs Icon Wrapped in Webs, you can free them by moving a Caustic Spiderlings over them and killing it. This will free them and also remove any webbing on the ground.
  • The Boss casts Web Blast Icon Web Blast on the current tank, which acts as the taunt swap mechanic.
  • Attempt to damage all the spider adds that spawn to apply Chaos Brand Icon Chaos Brand to them.

For more information, please refer to our Sennarth guide.

6.

Dathea, Ascended

6.1.

Talents

For Dathea, it is recommended to modify the default talents by switching Meteoric Strikes Icon Meteoric Strikes for Sigil of Silence Icon Sigil of Silence and move the point in Calcified Spikes Icon Calcified Spikes to Sigil of Chains Icon Sigil of Chains. This will make managing the adds on the platform significantly easier.

6.2.

Tips

  • The tank swap on this encounter is Zephyr Slam Icon Zephyr Slam. This ability will also knock you back, which you can use Infernal Strike Icon Infernal Strike to cancel.
  • Make sure to position the Volatile Infuser add close to the platform with the Thunder Caller adds, since it will cast Blowback Icon Blowback, which is what you need to use to reach the platform.
  • Use Disrupt Icon Disrupt and Sigil of Silence Icon Sigil of Silence to help interrupt important casts like Storm Bolt Icon Storm Bolt and Diverted Essence Icon Diverted Essence.

For more information, please refer to our Dathea guide.

7.

Kurog Grimtotem

7.1.

Talents

For Kurog, it is recommended that you run the default raid build.

7.2.

Tips

  • The taunt swap mechanic on this encounter is Sundering Strike Icon Sundering Strike, a large frontal cone attack that applies a stacking DoT effect. Since any target in front of the Boss will be hit, it is important that you aim the Boss away from the raid at all times.
  • Make sure to damage all add spawns to apply Chaos Brand Icon Chaos Brand to them

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

8.

Broodkeeper Diurna

8.1.

Talents

On Broodkeeper, you can run the default raid build regardless of which role you are fulfilling.

8.2.

Tips

The Boss needs to be kept at least 50 yards away from the adds at all times due to the aura effect Broodkeeper's Bond Icon Broodkeeper's Bond, which empowers and heals any add in range.

  • Broodkeeper has the tank swap ability Mortal Stoneclaws Icon Mortal Stoneclaws, however you do not need to swap during phase one since the effect only lasts for a short time. This debuff has an increased duration during phase 2, which will require a swap.
  • Use Disrupt Icon Disrupt and Sigil of Silence Icon Sigil of Silence to interrupt spells like Ice Barrage Icon Ice Barrage and Static Jolt Icon Static Jolt.

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

9.

Raszageth the Storm-Eater

9.1.

Talents

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

9.2.

Tips

     
  • Deal with Hurricane Wing Icon Hurricane Wing and Tempest Wing Icon Tempest Wing using  Infernal Strike Icon Infernal Strike and Vengeful Retreat Icon Vengeful Retreat.
  •  
  • Tank swap on 1 stack of Electrified Jaws Icon Electrified Jaws in phase 1 and 2.
  •  
  • Dodge Lightning Breath Icon Lightning Breath.
  •  
  • Maintain aggro and help kill all enemies during the intermissions.
  •  
  • Spread for Stormsurge Icon Stormsurge in phase 2 and stack at the predetermined location  for your debuff type.
  •  
  • In phase 3, you will be taking a large hit from Thunderous Blast Icon Thunderous Blast,  you must mitigate this effect as much as possible to reduce raid damage.  Use Fiery Brand Icon Fiery Brand, pool Fury, and stack as many stacks of Frailty Icon Frailty  with Soul Cleave Icon Soul Cleave as possible before the hit. You can also reduce it  further by using a cancelaura for your Demon Spikes Icon Demon Spikes to proc  Calcified Spikes Icon Calcified Spikes as well as place a Sigil of Flame Icon Sigil of Flame to apply  Demon Muzzle Icon Demon Muzzle.
