The Tarragrue

We advise you to use the following Legendaries against The Tarragrue.

  1. Faeline Harmony Icon Faeline Harmony
  2. Invoker's Delight Icon Invoker's Delight
  • This fight mostly consists of using Anima Powers granted by the trash mobs around the boss.
  • Try to pick abilities that give damage procs, as they scale the best. Damage increases are also good.
  • Use Touch of Karma Icon Touch of Karma when soaking Remnant of Forgotten Torments Icon Remnant of Forgotten Torments as needed.
  • Flying Serpent Kick Icon Flying Serpent Kick, Soulshape Icon Soulshape, Transcendence Icon Transcendence, and Roll Icon Roll are useful during Hungering Mist Icon Hungering Mist.
  • At 10% health The Jailer's Gaze Icon The Jailer's Gaze activates. Prepare for the boss to be kited; try to remain central while dealing damage.

For more information, please refer to our The Tarragrue guide.

5.

The Eye of the Jailer

We advise you to use the following Legendaries against The Eye of the Jailer.

  1. Faeline Harmony Icon Faeline Harmony
  2. Invoker's Delight Icon Invoker's Delight
  • Positioning away from the beam is important when Annihilating Glare Icon Annihilating Glare activates. Use Transcendence Icon Transcendence to teleport through the beam to avoid having to make large movements. Soulshape Icon Soulshape also works but is a bit harder to time.
  • Touch of Death Icon Touch of Death is useful for getting extra damage from low-health mobs.
  • In the last stage, Immediate Extermination Icon Immediate Extermination causes this fight to get much harder and reduces healing. Have Diffuse Magic Icon Diffuse Magic, Touch of Karma Icon Touch of Karma, and Fortifying Brew Icon Fortifying Brew ready for damage events while this debuff is stacking.

For more information, please refer to our The Eye of the Jailer guide.

6.

The Nine

We advise you to use the following Legendaries against The Nine.

  1. Faeline Harmony Icon Faeline Harmony
  2. Invoker's Delight Icon Invoker's Delight

7.

Remnant of Ner'zhul

We advise you to use the following Legendaries against Remnant of Ner'zhul.

  1. Faeline Harmony Icon Faeline Harmony
  2. Invoker's Delight Icon Invoker's Delight
  • Managing knockback from Malevolence Icon Malevolence is a big part of this fight. Monks have many tools such as Flying Serpent Kick Icon Flying Serpent Kick, Soulshape Icon Soulshape, Transcendence Icon Transcendence, and Roll Icon Roll to avoid getting knocked off the platform by bad positioning.
  • Windwalkers are exceptional at moving and kicking Orbs of Torment off the platform. Volunteer for this if you are able, as it is an essential duty that Windwalker is one of the best at.
  • When Orbs of Torment are hit by Suffering Icon Suffering they become vulnerable. Try to be ready with abilities to blow them up quickly, even if it means delaying slightly. The orbs take 500% increased damage; that is worth missing casts by delaying things a few seconds to line up.
  • Touch of Death Icon Touch of Death is useful for getting extra damage from low-health mobs.
  • Use Diffuse Magic Icon Diffuse Magic, Touch of Karma Icon Touch of Karma, and Fortifying Brew Icon Fortifying Brew to help reduce damage from Malevolence Icon Malevolence.

  1. Faeline Harmony Icon Faeline Harmony
  2. Invoker's Delight Icon Invoker's Delight
  • Flying Serpent Kick Icon Flying Serpent Kick, Soulshape Icon Soulshape, Transcendence Icon Transcendence, and Roll Icon Roll are useful for Tormented Icon Tormented since you will need to make large movements to avoid the waves.
  • Brand of Torment Icon Brand of Torment should be used to increase damage taken by Mawsworn. If you get this debuff, try to put the Mawsworn in the circle with you.
  • Windwalkers are great for snapping Warmonger Shackles Icon Warmonger Shackles, since we have Flying Serpent Kick Icon Flying Serpent Kick, Soulshape Icon Soulshape, Transcendence Icon Transcendence, and Roll Icon Roll to quickly break chains.
  • Use damage mitigation like Diffuse Magic Icon Diffuse Magic, Touch of Karma Icon Touch of Karma, and Fortifying Brew Icon Fortifying Brew during Warmonger Shackles Icon Warmonger Shackles.

  • Use Transcendence Icon Transcendence to teleport through Spiked Balls Icon Spiked Balls or Spike Walls.
  • Use damage mitigation like Diffuse Magic Icon Diffuse Magic, Touch of Karma Icon Touch of Karma, and Fortifying Brew Icon Fortifying Brew at the end of the intermission to avoid damage from Lingering Flames Icon Lingering Flames, or to avoid Flameclasp Eruption Icon Flameclasp Eruption from Flameclasp Trap Icon Flameclasp Trap.
  • It might be tempting to use cooldowns during the intermission on the Shadowsteel Embers, but it is always best to hold it for the next boss phase.
  • Be careful using Whirling Dragon Punch Icon Whirling Dragon Punch during the intermission phase as it will lock you in place for a moment and cut down on the amount of time you have to get to where you need to be.

  • Use Diffuse Magic Icon Diffuse Magic, Touch of Karma Icon Touch of Karma, and Fortifying Brew Icon Fortifying Brew for large damage events like high-stack pulses of Purging Protocol Icon Purging Protocol.

  1. Faeline Harmony Icon Faeline Harmony
  2. Invoker's Delight Icon Invoker's Delight
  • Weapons of Order Icon Weapons of Order and Bonedust Brew Icon Bonedust Brew generally line up well if you are strict about using them exactly on cooldown.
  • Go far with Call of Eternity Icon Call of Eternity so your orb does not cause issues later during Fated Conjunction Icon Fated Conjunction. Monks have plenty of movement for this with Flying Serpent Kick Icon Flying Serpent Kick, Soulshape Icon Soulshape, Transcendence Icon Transcendence, and Roll Icon Roll.
