Maiden of Vigilance, Healer Guide

Patch 7.2.5 Updated
June 27, 2017

Maiden of Vigilance Dungeon Journal ModelThis page covers a healer-focused strategy for the Maiden of Vigilance in the Tomb of Sargeras. 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 with the fight as well as Dungeon Journal information. I'll continue to update it as-needed.

General Mechanics and Abilities

Normal and Heroic

This is an alternating two-stage fight, switching back and forth between the two stages detailed below.

  • During the entire fight, the group must manage Infusion debuffs and related mechanics.
    • Touching a player with the opposite Infusion debuff as you, or being hit by a mechanic with the opposite Infusion element as you, will give you an Unstable Soul debuff.
      • To mitigate the damage from Unstable Soul, jump into the "pit" in the center of the room with ~2-seconds remaining on the debuff.
        • You will fall down at first, gaining Aegwynn's Ward, but once your debuff expires you'll be launched back out.
Stage One - divide and conquer
Stage Two - the watcher's wrath

During this Stage, the Maiden jumps to the opposite side of the room and begins a series of abilities.

  • Be as far away from Maiden as possible to shorten the stun from Blowback.
  • Maiden will be affected by a massive damage absorption shield from Titanic Bulwark.
    • This must be damaged down quickly so Wrath of the Creators can be interrupted before the damage is too high.
      • Upon reaching 30-stacks, Maiden casts Extinguish Life, killing the entire group.
  • Essence Fragments emits Holy and Fel orbs from Maiden, which travel in a circle around the room and make running to Maiden more complicated.
    • Collecting orbs that match your Infusion will grant one of two buffs.
    • Touching an orb that doesn't match your Infusion, or being near a non-matching orb that's been hit, will trigger Unstable Soul.
    • Ideally, it should work out that all Light Infusion players are on one side of the boss, and all Fel Infusion players are on the other.
      • This mitigates the chance that someone is in the splash damage of an orb.

Mythic Differences

  • Fragment Burst is present in the Dungeon Journal, but it's unclear what triggers it. My best guess is a player touching the wrong Fragment will trigger it.
Stage One - divide and conquer
  • When affected by Spontaneous Fragmentation, move away from the resulting Fragment, which will be the opposite Infusion element.
    • Be ready to soak other player's Fragments that are the same element as your Infusion.
    • If you touch a Fragment of the opposite element, you'll gain Unstable Soul.

Healing Strategy

Stage One - divide and conquer

Stage Two - the watcher's wrath

  • Wrath of the Creators deals steadily increasing damage to the group, and will likely require at least one group-healing cooldown, possibly more depending how long it takes to break Titanic Bulwark.

Debuffs to Track

  • There are no particularly important debuffs to track during  this fight.

DBM Settings

Below are the DBM settings I'll be using for Maiden of Vigilance. You can set them up however you'd like, but these ones should work well as a starting point. Some settings may be Mythic only.

Settings will be added the week Tomb of Sargeras is released.
