1. Elemental Shaman in the Crucible of Storms

In this section, you will find information pertaining to each boss individually in the Crucible of Storms raid. Note that this section will not list every ability you need to move out of, every ability you can interrupt, and so on. Please refer to the previous link for generic boss guides, and to the in-game dungeon journal. Goblin is recommended for both bosses because Rocket Jump Icon Rocket Jump is very nice to have.

3. The Restless Cabal

3.1. Suggested Talents for Elemental Shaman on The Restless Cabal

3.2. Elemental Shaman Tips on The Restless Cabal

On this fight, a ranged DPS will tank one of the bosses, Zaxasj the Speaker. Elemental Shamans are unlikely to be ideal for that role, so make sure to focus your damage on Fa'thuul the Feared at first.

When targeted by Crushing Doubt Icon Crushing Doubt, wait 4 seconds before using Astral Shift Icon Astral Shift. This is because this spell's damage increases every 2 seconds, so it hurts a lot more toward the end of its duration. That being said, you should prioritize having Astral Shift Icon Astral Shift available for the two Storm of Annihilation Icon Storm of Annihilations.

During Storm of Annihilation Icon Storm of Annihilation, you should feel free to interrupt any Witness the End Icon Witness the End cast from the adds.

Try to line up a high-stack Promises of Power Icon Promises of Power buff with your cooldowns, if possible. Ideally, you want to use that damage buff to burst down the shields the bosses gain from activating Relics of Power.

4. Uu'nat, Harbinger of the Void

4.1. Suggested Talents for Elemental Shaman on Uu'nat, Harbinger of the Void

4.2. Elemental Shaman Tips on Uu'nat, Harbinger of the Void

Be careful not to attack your allies when Gift of N'Zoth: Lunacy Icon Gift of N'Zoth: Lunacy is cast.

You should be able to use Tremor Totem Icon Tremor Totem to remove the fears from Unknowable Terror Icon Unknowable Terror.

You can use Thunderstorm Icon Thunderstorm to interrupt and help stack the Primordial Mindbenders. Capacitor Totem Icon Capacitor Totem and Wind Shear Icon Wind Shear will also interrupt them.
