Brewmaster is performing quite well in the dungeons of Battle for Azeroth. The tank class is known for its high mobility and toolkit to survive huge amounts of incoming damage. In the current state of high tank-damage dungeons, kiting and easily holding threat while doing so is incredibly valuable. Brewmaster excels at this, as well as sustains a medium-high amount of self-healing compared to other tanks with the right azerite traits. We also provide the group with a number of utility abilities that can and should be used often.
The Brewmaster utility kit changed a little coming from Legion and has proved to be a nice fit in Battle for Azeroth Dungeons. The biggest change was the addition of Fußfeger
to the baseline kit, which now allows having both Ring des Friedens
and sweep at the same time. This guide will have lots of technical information and strategies to prepare before doing keys. Brewmaster is challenging to play in dungeons at a high level and requires coordination with the group to emulate some large pulls that are simplified by other tank class utility spells (Todesgriff
). While this can seem like a daunting challenge, it is always possible to make up for the weaknesses of the Brewmaster tank class with teamwork and coordination. On the other hand, Brewmaster is capable of many things other tanks are not, and that is the fun part. Capitalize on those moments every chance possible.
Currently in BFA, tanks take an absolutely massive amount of damage in high level mythic+ keys. Brewmasters are easy to heal when played optimally, so they naturally excel in this environment. Incoming damage is smoothed to a manageable amount to heal by Staffeln
and pre-emptive use of defensives paired with fast reactive use of Reinigendes Gebräu
. I will go into further detail below on the specific abilities that work together to make Brewmaster shine.
