This guide assumes that you have a knowledge of the mechanics of both bosses and trash in the dungeon and will take a more monk focused approach. For more information on the mechanics of all the different mobs and bosses in the dungeon check out the guide over at Wowhead.

Talents

The recommended talents for The Arcway are:
Chi Wave
Tiger’s Lust

Energizing Elixir
Leg Sweep
Dampen Harm
Hit Combo
Whirling Dragon Punch.

The damage talents selected are taken due to being the current best setup in all scenarios, there is no real deviation in talents for aoe/st.

Tiger’s Lust can be used to dispel roots in this dungeon and as such is superior to Chi Torpedo in this scenario.

The huge hits in The Arcway vary in damage type (Wicked Slam, Tangled Web etc) therefore Dampen Harm is best.

 

Boss Tips

Gear:
-Legendaries: The Wind Blows + The Emperor’s Capacitor / Prydaz, Xavaric’s Magnum Opus
-Trinkets: Golganneth’s Vitality + Shadow Singed Fang / Coagulated Nighwell Residue
-Other: A normal ST set is advised (T21 4pc)

WW specific tips:
-On this boss you basically just play your normal ST rotation, rotating defensives and trinkets is required on high keys as Wicked Slam deals massive damage, especially on Tyrannical.

Gear:
-Legendaries: The Wind Blows + The Emperor’s Capacitor
-Trinkets: Golganneth’s Vitality + Shadow Singed Fang
-Other: A normal ST set is advised (T21 4pc)

WW specific tips:
-Placing your Transcendence near either entrance can help you break Tangled Web quickly/instantly.
-As Blink Strikes is coming in you should be ready to Roll away, if you react quickly enough you can avoid any damage.

Gear:
-Legendaries: The Wind Blows + The Emperor’s Capacitor
-Trinkets: Golganneth’s Vitality + Shadow Singed Fang
-Other: A normal ST set is advised (T21 4pc)

WW specific tips:
-If you get 3 or more stacks of Nightwell Energy you can fit 3 (or more) RSK into your SEF, although the amount of stacks needed for a 4th would be very high and very likely not worth it. This is due to the fact that if you still have stacks and get hit by Exterminate you’ll be stunned for 12 seconds which will almost definitely kill you.

Gear:
-Legendaries: The Wind Blows + The Emperor’s Capacitor
-Trinkets: Golganneth’s Vitality + Shadow Singed Fang
-Other: A normal ST set is advised (T21 4pc)

WW specific tips:
-WW can abuse its mobility very well on this boss, making sure to get out quickly with Volatile Magic so you don’t cleave any other melee or helping to place Nether Link pools cleanly. Make sure to use your full mobility kit to this effect; with Roll, Flying Serpent Kick, Tiger’s Lust and Transcendence.

Gear:
-Legendaries: The Wind Blows + The Emperor’s Capacitor
-Trinkets: Golganneth’s Vitality + Shadow Singed Fang
-Other: A normal ST set is advised (T21 4pc)

WW specific tips:
-If you make sure that you don’t go into the transition phase of the boss with any stacks of SEF left it will ensure that you don’t overcap charges.
-It can be tempting to charge super far ahead during the intermission phase due to your insane mobility but try and stick close to the healer so you don’t get killed. It can be very easy to line of sight them during this period or even just get out of range.
-You can use Paralysis to lock any of the Timeless Wraiths in position, this will stop them from patrolling back into the path of the group.

Trash Tips

Notable packs to be ready to stun:
-If you pull a lot of oozes at the start dealing with Ooze Explosion casts with a Leg Sweep is very important.
-Stunning the rats to the right at the start before you overwhelmed by Black Plague.
-The packs containing Nightborne Reclaimers and Spellswords are very deadly and have uninterruptable casts.
-If you do a large pull of the bigger spiders around Nal’Tira it’s very important to have stun ready, devour can demolish the group if left uninterrupted.

Important casts to look out for and prioritize kicks on:
Demonic Ascension
Portal: Argus
Brand of the Legion (if you have a mage this can be spellstolen and should be let through)
Torment
Eye of the Vortex
Siphon Essence
Arcane Reconstitution
Phase Breach
Overcharge Mana (During the Ivanyr boss fight)
Accelerating Blast (During the Advisor Vandros boss fight, if you have a mage this can be spellstolen and should be let through)

There are many casts that can’t be interrupted using Spear Hand Strike, you should try to use Paralysis or Leg Sweep on these where possible:
Ooze Explosion
Arcane Barrier
Shattering Stomp
Bladestorm
Felstorm
Devour

The root applied by Vicious Manafangs can be dispelled with Tiger’s Lust.
