Azure Vault WoW Dungeon Guide
If you are a veteran player this dungeon will remind you of, The Nexus, from Wrath of the Lich King.
Be expectant for Blue Dragonflight magic seeps from within. The trash packs will have many interrupts and annoyances to deal with along the path.
Born from a seedling found in the Ley Energy.
Once a small sprouting in Syndragossa’s garden. Leymor grew to giant proportions.
If left to his own devices Leymor would overrun The Azure Vault
Watch out for the Disruptive Ley-Line Sprouts as they cause plenty of damage. Angry and annoyed a Consuming Stomp will shake the halls in attempts to squish you. Erupting Fisures will strike out from in front of him to get rid of the pests at his feet. With an Explosive Brand he will slam the floor to knock everyone away and try to end the attack.
As the Vault security Azureblade chose her duty above all else to remain as it was Sealed.
When the blue Dragons did not return her bitterness turned into madness.
Extending her life beyond normal with the magic within she claims ownership of the vault and all of the contents within.
Azureblade has many tricks up her sleeves. This boss like to play with Overwhelming Power summoning Draconic Images to confuse and interrupt you. Ancient Orb fragments will float about best to avoid these. Arcane Cleave will strike those in front of her. You wont be able to avoid the deadly Arcane Orb thrown at you.
Furious at the Blue Dragonflight, Telash spends his time hunting for Syndragossa’s secrets within the Vault.
With the Sundered flame he is opportunistic about finding secrets of the Dracthyr.
Preying to find incriminating evidence against the Blue Dragonflight, beware for this Drakthyr is angry indeed.
Whilst Telash might seem crazy he is skilful indeed. Freezing players with Absolute Zero! Get inside Syndragossa’s Vault Runes to save yourself. Frost Bombs will be thrown at you leaving Frozen Ground behind their explosions. The Icy Devastator will chill your core.
Long ago Umbrelskul meddled with her raw arcane power.
Coated in crystaline growths he was taken to the Azure Vault until a cure could be found.
The vault sealed not long after, no cure was found. Sleeping in Statis or is he?
Movement speeds will be reduced with Oppressive Miasma. Each 25% of health he becomes Brittle, shedding Detonating Crystals that should be avoided. Unleashed Destruction and Arcane Eruptions will hurt and knock you away. Tanks beware for Crystalline Roar and Dragon Strike!
Standard dragon rules apply. Do not stand at the Tail, near the wings or in front. Be at max range or underneath him.

Mythic+ Azure Vault Dungeon Guide
Mythic+ is a PVE players dream. These dungeons will scale from +2 to +30. Defeat the bosses and 100% trash counters to win. You get bonus points for completing them with ++ or +++ on the timer.
Remember all of the abilities in Heroic and Mythic are up-scaled and even more deadly.
MythicPlusTimer is a perfect addon to track the timer during key progress.
Each week will give you different affixes to overcome. Play to the strengths of each of these. For instance with sanguine it is good to take a DK or Monk as they can grab trash out of the pools of healing.
The timer for Azure Vault is 34 minutes.
I recommend reading How to Lead Groups in PVE & PVP. This will give you insight to leading and running mythic+ dungeons.
With all Mythic Plus Dungeons you need to watch out for is:
- Deaths. Dying in the key will result in -5 seconds per death.
- If you wipe entirely not only will you loose 25 seconds of time.
- Focus Interrupts, Dispels and Crowd Control.
- Keeping trash packs controlled sounds easy but it can be a challenge.
- Focus the right interrupts on heavy damage or heal abilities.
Glory of the Dragonflight Hero
You can earn the bonus achievements within Mythic difficulty. Each dungeon contains a selection of secret achievements that ultimately reward the Lava Snail Shellack mount.
You Must be Made of Hide
Defeat Umbrelskul without being hit by a pollymoprh trap or triggering a shriek.
This is easy enough to obtain. Avoid the traps and do not trigger him to shriek during the encounter.
Icy What You Did There
Defeat Telash after using Icy Devastator 12 times on an Icy Crystal to create a Very Icy Crystal.
Again this achievement is simple. All players should be near an Icy Crystal so Icy Devastator can hit it 12 times. Mark one crystal to ensure it survives.
The Cracked Crystal
Defeat Umbelskul after smashing simmering Geodes with Dragon Strike and destroying 9 Geode Chunks.
Locate the Geode chunks prior to engaging the boss. Position yourself with Dragon Strike to ensure it impacts the Geodes. Destroy the chunks to win.
