General Information

On this page, you will find tips, tricks, and strategies tailored to your Windwalker Monk for each boss of the following raid: Amirdrassil. All our content is updated for World of Warcraft — Dragonflight 10.2.5.

1.

Introduction

On this page, you will find Windwalker Monk-specific information to deal with each Boss in the Amirdrassil raid.

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 Brewmaster Monks and what you can do to deal with each fight as best as possible.

1.1.

Resetting Encounters with Transcendence

All Monk specializations are capable of resetting most Boss encounters with the use of Transcendence Icon Transcendence and Transcendence: Transfer Icon Transcendence: Transfer. This can be especially useful in a progression environment to save on repair costs and allow players to keep their consumable buffs, such as food from a Hoard of Draconic Delicacies Icon Hoard of Draconic Delicacies. All you have to do as a Monk is place your Transcendence spirit beyond the area that will normally be closed off after engaging the Boss. Then, if you would like to reset the encounter, get the Boss's attention with Provoke Icon Provoke and teleport outside the encounter area with Transcendence: Transfer Icon Transcendence: Transfer. If done successfully, the Boss will follow you outside and despawn.

Unless otherwise used during an encounter or mentioned in its tips section, it is highly recommended to get into the habit of setting up this form of fight reset. However, you should never feel forced to do so if there is a point in an encounter that you prefer having access to one of your most powerful mobility tools.

2.

Talent Cheatsheet

The following talent tree is recommended for general use in raid encounters. Be aware that you may switch some points to gain specific utility against certain mechanics, which we will mention on specific bosses where relevant. Remember that you can also easily import the talent tree below into the game with either of the two "Copy Export String" buttons:

3.

Gnarlroot

3.1.

Talent Adjustments

Gnarlroot is mainly a fight with some adds to blow up, but ultimately a single target fight, so the Faeline Stomp Icon Faeline Stomp Cleave talent build will get the job done.

3.2.

Tips

  • Take a talent for a second charge of Roll Icon Roll, if required for the intermission.
  • Sync cooldowns to have your maximum damage at the 2 minute mark (if possible, use a 2 minute trinket as well).
  • Use small adds to funnel onto the big adds on Mythic or onto the Boss on Heroic
  • Can pick Yu'lon's Grace Icon Yu'lon's Grace over Diffuse Magic Icon Diffuse Magic depending on your needs and healer's capabilities.
  • Line up Strike of the Windlord Icon Strike of the Windlord with add spawns for maximum funnel damage.

For more information, please refer to our Gnarlroot guide.

4.

Igira the Cruel

4.1.

Talent Adjustments

Igira is also a fight with spears to blow up, but ultimately a single-target fight, so the Faeline Stomp Icon Faeline Stomp Cleave talent build will get the job done.

4.2.

Tips

  • You can use a talent setup with AOE Touch of Death Icon Touch of Death to get rid of Spears if your group's comp calls for it.
  • Funnel onto Spears if required, otherwise funnel on the Boss Boss.
  • Line up Strike of the Windlord Icon Strike of the Windlord with spear spawns for funnel damage.
5.

Volcoross

5.1.

Talent Adjustments

Volcoross is entirely a single-target fight, so the standard ST build works.

5.2.

Tips

  • This is a very simple fight, no major notes needed.

For more information, please refer to our Volcoross guide.

6.

Council of Dreams

6.1.

Talent Adjustments

With multiple targets to hit, a lean into the Faeline Stomp Icon Faeline Stomp Cleave build should work best.

6.2.

Tips

  • Dispel slows with Tiger's Lust Icon Tiger's Lust and DoTs with Detox Icon Detox as often as possible

For more information, please refer to our Council of Dreams guide.

7.

Larodar, Keeper of the Flame

7.1.

Talent Adjustments

Larodar is another fight with some adds to blow up, but ultimately a single target fight, so the Faeline Stomp Icon Faeline Stomp Cleave talent build will get the job done.

7.2.

Tips

  • Line up Strike of the Windlord Icon Strike of the Windlord with adds
  • Use Tiger's Lust Icon Tiger's Lust if needed during Phase 1
  • Pick a second Roll Icon Roll or even double Chi Torpedo Icon Chi Torpedo if you are assigned to clear.
  • Use Ring of Peace Icon Ring of Peace to ring out adds right before they die in last phase; use Paralysis Icon Paralysis as well
8.

Nymue, Weaver of the Cycle

8.1.

Talent Adjustments

The single target and cleave builds work fine here; since they are almost identical, you can make small changes if needed.

8.2.

Tips

  • If required, keep cooldowns for Treants.
  • Place Transcendence Icon Transcendence before the pull on the side you are assigned to to avoid the stacks from the lines
9.

Smolderon

9.1.

Talent Adjustments

Smolderon is another single-target fight, so the standard ST build will work.

9.2.

Tips

  • Picking up Diffuse Magic Icon Diffuse Magic might be smart to have a guaranteed defensive up for brand, else just try to Touch of Karma Icon Touch of Karma each one of them
  • It may be best to plan out cooldowns for maximum usage:
    • 0:00 Serenity Icon Serenity and Invoke Xuen, the White Tiger Icon Invoke Xuen, the White Tiger
    • 01:30 Serenity Icon Serenity
    • 03:00 Serenity Icon Serenity and Invoke Xuen, the White Tiger Icon Invoke Xuen, the White Tiger
    • 04:30 Serenity Icon Serenity
    • 06:00 Serenity Icon Serenity and Invoke Xuen, the White Tiger Icon Invoke Xuen, the White Tiger with delaying Invoke Xuen, the White Tiger Icon Invoke Xuen, the White Tiger for every other damage phase while keeping Serenity Icon Serenity for all except the first one

For more information, please refer to our Smolderon guide.

10.

Tindral Sageswift, Seer of the Flame

10.1.

Talent Adjustments

Thankfully for Windwalker’s strengths, this is another fight with adds to funnel damage into the Boss with. You can use the full Fatal Flying Guillotine Icon Fatal Flying Guillotine/Touch of Death Icon Touch of Death build if you need to focus on add damage.

10.2.

Tips

  • Delay Strike of the Windlord Icon Strike of the Windlord for the roots, to get as much Thunderfist Icon Thunderfist out on the boss as possible
  • AOE Touch of Death Icon Touch of Death could be useful depending on your group's needs.
  • Use Tiger's Lust Icon Tiger's Lust on a player in need ( e.g. rooted inside of a mushroom, etc)
  • On the second platform, use your mobility to stomp the flowers. Can put Transcendence Icon Transcendence onto the Boss to get back ASAP after you are done stomping
11.

Fyrakk the Blazing

  • This fight can get awkward for cooldown timings depending on your group, so don't be afraid to swap to Storm, Earth, and Fire Icon Storm, Earth, and Fire if you want the flexibility of two charges.
  • Leg Sweep Icon Leg Sweep, Ring of Peace Icon Ring of Peace, and Spear Hand Strike Icon Spear Hand Strike can be very useful to help control the adds.
  • Storm, Earth, and Fire Icon Storm, Earth, and Fire also helps to tag targets for Mark of the Crane Icon Mark of the Crane as they're getting grouped up, allowing you to unload as much AOE as you can once they're grouped.
  • Fatal Flying Guillotine Icon Fatal Flying Guillotine can be used if you really need help killing the small adds, but it won't be useful throughout most of the fight.
  • Be careful where you Roll Icon Roll when lines or other mechanics are out.
  • Transcendence Icon Transcendence can help you get back to the boss after a mechanic or the knock-ups, just be aware of where you leave it so you don't port into danger.
