3.1.

Tips

When moving away from the raid with the Incineration Icon Incineration debuff, the most efficient way to act is to use Transcendence Icon Transcendence to get away from the boss, as this allows you to do it as late as you want. You can then use Flying Serpent Kick Icon Flying Serpent Kick to return to the fight. However, if you are not confident in your co-ordination with other players or have not placed Transcendence pre-emptively, place it near the boss as you move away and use it to come back.

For more information, please refer to our Wrathion, the Black Emperor guide.

Maut

Tips

It is worth noting here that, since you are silenced while in the magical protection zones, you can not use Transcendence Icon Transcendence to get out of them. You, therefore, can use it either to get inside or to go back to the boss. Also of note, Transcendence Icon Transcendence allows you to cancel the knockback on Dark Wings; however, as a melee DPS, this is a minor concern.
