Introduction

In this section, you will find information and guidance for each boss individually in the Eternal Palace raid as a Elemental Shaman. These are not complete encounter guides, but rather provide specific tips for any Elemental Shaman on each boss.

As a preliminary, I would point out that Wind Rush Totem Icon Wind Rush Totem is particularly handy on many of the fights in this raid. I will not describe all the possible uses but they should be obvious in practice. Notably, any time the raid has to reposition after forced movement/knockbacks/transitions.

Tips

Because of the amount of possible movement in this fight, you have several possibilities. First, you can choose between Icefury Icon Icefury and Primal Elementalist Icon Primal Elementalist, the former helping you deal with regular movement. Alternatively, or additionally, you can consider using Conflict and Strife Icon Conflict and Strife as a major essence, because you can channel Lightning Lasso Icon Lightning Lasso while moving.

Remember to keep moving every now and then in order to keep stacks low when affected by Frozen Blood Icon Frozen Blood. Conversely, move as little as possible when affected by Venomous Blood Icon Venomous Blood.
