The Azure Vault, Healer Guide

Updated 2 hours, 30 minutes ago for patch 10.0 by Preston. View the change log.

This page covers healer-focused strategies for The Azure Vault dungeon in Dragonflight. 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 and combat log information. I'll continue to update it as-needed.



Healer ModelBosses

Below are guides for the bosses in The Azure Vault, including their abilities, healer notes, and addon settings.

Placeholder Dungeon Journal ModelLeymor

The three nearby Arcane Tenders must be killed to remove Stasis Ritual and activate Leymor.

  • Every 45-seconds, creates nine Ley-Line Sprouts at random locations.
  • The tank will be dealing with light damage and then light damage over time from Infused Strike.
  • Don't stand in front to avoid Erupting Fissure.
    • This destroys any Ley-Line Sprouts hit.
  • Every 30-seconds, during Explosive Brand:
    • If any Ley-Line Sprouts are active, players should stand within 12-yards of Leymore to take moderate damage and get knocked back, gaining Explosive Brand.
    • If no Ley-Line Sprouts are active, stay more than 12-yards away from Leymore to avoid the extra damage.
  • Every 45-seconds, deals moderate to heavy damage to all players with Consuming Stomp.
    • Damage dealt is increased by Arcane Power for each Ley-Line Sprout that exists.
    • This destroys all Ley-Line Sprouts.

Healer ModelMythic Differences

  • Ley-Line Sprouts spawn Volatile Saplings when destroyed.
    • Volatile Sapling
      • Upon death, stay more than 7-yards away to avoid the heavy damage from Sappy Burst.
