General Information

On this page, you will find tips, tricks, and strategies tailored to your Elemental Shaman for each boss of the following raid: Sepulcher of the First Ones. All our content is updated for World of Warcraft — Dragonflight 10.2.5.

1.

Introduction

During the Dragonflight Pre-Patch, Castle Nathria, Sanctum of Domination, and Sepulcher of the First Ones will be simultaneously featured as Fated Raids. During this time encounters within each specific raid will include an additional mechanic and items will drop at increased item levels. If you would like to learn more general information about the Fated Raids system as a whole, please see our overview below. Otherwise, continue to use this page for specialization-specific tips.

On this page, you will find Elemental Shaman specific information to deal with each boss in the Sepulcher of the First Ones raid.

This page assumes that you already understand most of the mechanics of each encounter. These can be found on the full raid guide, so what is contained here are details specifically tailored toward Elemental Shaman and what you can do to deal with each fight as best as possible.

The rule of thumb for Legendaries is: Are there significant adds that can be cleaved? If so, Echoes of Great Sundering Icon Echoes of Great Sundering is probably the way to go. If not, Windspeaker's Lava Resurgence Icon Windspeaker's Lava Resurgence is almost certainly the way to go.

Most tips should still be relevant but we do not know how Blizzard's Dragonflight Pre-Patch balance pass will affect every boss; some tactics may change.

The following talent tree will work on every boss although some adjustments may be valid in some cases. You can also import it directly into the game with the following string:
