Mogu'shan Vault 10 Man Guide Part 2

First Half

The Spirit Kings

1 Tank
2 Healers
7 Dps

Overview: There's 4 bosses to this encounter, they come one at a time and the next one starts as soon as the the previous one's health is depleted.

Qiang the Merciless - He's always the first one active, the rest of the spirit kings can come in any order. Everyone stack on the tank to split Massive Attack. Run behind him for Annihilate. When he casts Flanking Order, dodge the slow mogus that march diagonally across the room.

Subetai the Swift - Spread out in a circle to avoid more than one player getting hit by Volley and Rain of Arrows. DPS down the pinning arrow from Rain of Arrows. He'll jump on a random person and use Pillage, get away when he's casting this.

Zian of the Endless Shadow - Spread out more than 8 yards to avoid Charged Shadow. DPS down Undying Shadows, and then don't stand in the void zone it forms. Interrupt Shadow Blasts.

Meng the Demented - He switches between Crazed and Cowardice, but in LFR it doesn't really make a difference. Just DPS him and AOE everyone quickly when he casts Maddening Shout

Whenever one king goes down he'll continue to cast an ability until all four are dead. So you need to avoid Flanking Order and Pillage, Deal with Undying Shadows and Maddening Shout.

What to do:

Tank: Make everyone stack on you when tanking Qiang the Merciless for Massive Attack. Run behind for Annihilate. Dodge Flanking Order. Move out of Volley on Subetai. Tank Zian and Meng normally.

Healers: Heal up raid damage on Qiang during Massive Attack, if an Undying Shadows focuses you, make sure it doesn't die in a crowded area due to the void zone it drops.

DPS: Stack on tank for Massive Attack, run behind Qiang when he uses Annihilate. Dodge Flanking Order. Spread out for in a circle around Subetai and Zian, free pinned players quickly by dpsing the arrow. Kite and kill Undying Shadows in corners of the room. Stack up and aoe when Meng casts Maddening Shout.


  • This feels pretty much the same as LFR, Massive Attack, Annihilate, Volley, and Cowardice can kill you quickly if you aren't paying attention.
  • When Meng has Cowardice up, be sure to stop dpsing around 70% reflect damage, if you can remove the magical reflect dot he places on you then keep dpsing.
  • Watch for Maddening Shout and stack up for it, it only takes a few aoe attacks to break everyone out but if people are spread out it is easy to wipe.
  • Interrupt Zian's shadow blast, it does a good amount of damage but you should be able to get all of them with three people interrupting.

Phase 1: There's an inner circle that's glowing, standing on it buffs you with Touch of the Titans, at the same time you gain overcharged stacks quickly, making you take 5% more damage every few seconds as long as you remain on the platform. He summons Celestial Protectors, these are buffed by Touch of the Titans and cast Total Annihilation on death for AOE damage to everyone.

Phase 2: At 85% he summons Energy Charges in the middle of the circle that go outwards to Empyreal Foci, each wave of adds he summons causes 5% extra damage taken to him, this continues until one reaches the focus, at which point the inner circle disappears in six seconds, if you're standing on it you will fall and die. He'll do this again at 50%. DPS down the Empyreal Focus around the room, avoid Energy Cascades which are circles on the ground. Kill Cosmic Sparks. Phase 2 will repeat again at 50% health.

Phase 3: At 40% Elegon starts using radiating energy. This is the burn phase.

What to do:

Tanks: Tank Elegon away from everyone to avoid Celestial Breath, one tank picks up Celestial Protectors and move them out of the inner circle when they're close to death, tanks need to swap as soon as the celestial protector is down to give them both a chance to clear stacks, the tank on Elegon will probably need to use a damage reduction cooldown when the Celestial Protectors blow up. Help kill Energy Charges in phase 2. Gather up and tank Cosmic Sparks, they hit moderately hard and are ccable, stuns are very useful for this.

Healers: Heal through Total Annihilation damage, be aware of your overcharged stacks and clear at least before it reaches 10 stacks. Assign one healer to either sides of the platform to keep your group alive, phase three everyone will take damage each time an Energy Charge dies.

DPS: Stand in the inner circle but clear your overcharged stacks at least by 10, DPS Elegon, DPS Celestial Protectors, Split up into two groups and assign each dps to an Energy Charges. Don't stand on the inner circle when a charge reaches the Empyreal Focus. Kill Empyreal Focus, kill Cosmic Sparks, get back on the inner circle once it's reformed. Phase 3 stack up behind the boss and use everything to kill him before he kills you.

  • Decide on a meeting spot for ranged and healers during phase 1, we used the console.
  • Assign DPS to each Energy Charge and have tanks help out.
  • If you're ranged or a healer, stand at the very edge of the glowing platform, jumping up and down should reset your overcharged debuff.
  • In phase 2, we coordinated Empyreal Focus kills to go off near the same time, the reason being Elegon casts Energy Cascade faster via Overloaded each time an Empyreal Focus is destroyed, if you destroy them all at the same time he will spawn less Cosmic Sparks.
  • Cosmic Sparks hurt a lot but can be stunned or rooted.
  • Try for 5-6 stacks of draw power during phase 2 each time. With the tanks helping this should be doable. The more stacks he has at the end the sooner he will die.

Will of the Emperor

2 Tanks
3 Healers
5 Dps


Jan-xi and Qin-xi use Combination Attacks when their energy bars reach 20. They will perform 5 attacks, watch them closely, they will telegraph which direction they will swing with blue slashes, avoid these by running to the opposite side of him, sometimes it'll be a stomp that stuns, you can tell it's a stomp when one of the attacks has no direction indicator and their weapon is raised, and there's a cloud of dust, run out when this happens to avoid it. If you manage to avoid all 5 strikes, you will receive an Opportunistic Strike as your special attack button, use it for half a million damage on the boss. These take some practice to avoid, if a melee can't do it, it's better to run out completely.

Emperor's Rage spawn in twos, they can be CCed, they fixate on random members.

Emperor's Courage fixates on the farthest away tank and can not be harmed if attacked from the front, kill these before they reach the tank.

Emperor's Strength can be tanked by DPS, they will use Energizing Smash on players they're aggroed to, telegraphed by a big circle on the ground, avoid the attack and kill them fast.

Bloodlust at 15-20%, soft enrage at 10%, causing adds to spawn fast.

What to do:

Tank: Try your best to avoid combination attacks, you're not really tanking anything else once Jan-xi and Qin-xi spawn. Don't bother trying to run out during combination attacks, you will be pulled back in by the boss.

Healers: Heal combination attack damage, kite Emperor's Rage. Heal through Titan Gas.

DPS: Prioritze adds before boss, strength and courage are troublesome if they're kept up for too long. Melee can try to dodge combination attacks with the tank, but if you're not reacting fast enough, just stay out of there. Melee save DPS cooldowns for Titan Gas.

  •  Really similar to LFR, nothing changes here.
  • Kill order is Courage>Strength>Rage
  • Near the end of the fight, consider ccing rages to focus on the boss.
  • This is an endurance fight, if you've killed elegon you should be fine here.
