Crucible of Storms raid testing begins this week with the Restless Cabal encounter.

Crucible of Storms is the second raid added in Tides of Vengeance that houses two bosses. It's very similar to Legion's Trial of Valor. The raid is situated beneath the Shrine of the Storm in Stormsong Valley. While Battle of Dazar'alor opens on January 22, Crucible of the Storms will be available at a later time, probably after Patch 8.1.5 goes live.

Crucible of Storms Encounters

The raid consists of two encounters and you can learn more about both encounters by visiting the links below.

On Thursday, January 10th we will be conducting our first raid tests of the Crucible of Storms.

The Restless Cabal - Heroic Crucible of Storms
13:00 PST (16:00 EST, 22:00 CET)

As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.

Q: How do I get into the raid zone?

A: In Zuldazar, Boralus, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade III in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)

Q: What character should I use to test the raid?

A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players’ effective level to 120 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.

Q: How long does testing last?

A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we’re satisfied that we’ve received that information for a given boss, we’ll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.
