Scarlet Monastery - Armory, Healer Guide

Updated 2 months, 1 week ago for patch 1.13 by Preston. View the change log.

This page covers healer-focused strategies for the Scarlet Monastery - Armory dungeon. While it's tailored for healers, other roles may also find the information useful. If you have any suggestions or feedback, you can leave a comment below or tweet @PrestonDvorak.

This guide has been updated and maintained based on my own experiences as well as Dungeon Journal information. I'll continue to update it as-needed.

To access this dungeon, you'll need The Scarlet Key from The Library.

Best for players level 32-42.


Below are guides for the bosses in Scarlet Monastery - Armory, including their abilities, healer notes, and addon settings.

Herod Dungeon Journal Model Herod

  • Initiates combat on the tank with Rushing Charge, dealing heavy damage.
  • Hits the tank and the player closest to the tank with Cleave.
  • Dispel Frenzy (enrage) to remove the increased haste and damage dealt.
  • During Whirlwind, stay at least 10-yards away to avoid the heavy damage.

 Healing Notes

  • Be prepared to heal the second player being hit by Cleave, this will most likely be a melee DPS.
  • Players caught in Whirlwind will need significant healing.
 Debuffs to Track

Useful addons and settings will be added closer to release.
