Brackenhide Hollow Dungeon Guide

Before we breakdown the bosses, let’s go over some of the trash.

You will experience some DoT and Bleed effects whilst battling your way through Brackenhide Hollow.

Healers can combat this by having Dispels and Cooldowns at the ready.

Actively CC and stun packs until Diminishing Returns kicks in to prevent these applications from getting too much to handle.

As a caution and warning: Bracken Warscourge will cast Hideous Cackle this will send you into a fear and aimlessly running for 7 seconds. Interrupt this ability as often as possible.

FYI: During the Beta and Early release for World of Warcraft Dragonflight this dungeon had a lot of reports of High DoT times, we expect there will be some changes in minor patches.

From the entrance of the dungeon all the way to the 1st boss, you will need to free 5 “meat cache’s”. If you skip ahead you will not be able to fight the boss.
