On this page, you will find tips, tricks, and strategies tailored to your Frost Mage for each boss of the Crucible of Storms raid. All our content is updated for World of Warcraft — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.1.5.

1. Disclaimer

This page will be a talent cheatsheet and Frost Mage-specific tips page for Crucible of Storms. For an actual strategy on the encounters, you should check the raid guide.

This page will be updated over the first few weeks of the raid as strategies emerge and any tips are found. All recommendations at this time are based on PTR testing and other preliminary information, and are subject to change.

2. Frost Mage in Crucible of Storms

Both of the encounters seem to favour multi-DoT and long distance cleave specs. Frost Mage will not look great in terms of log performance, mostly due to lack of ability to pad.

3. Talent Cheatsheet

The Restless Cabal Uu'nat, Harbinger of the Void

4. The Restless Cabal

4.1. Talents

Standard cleave talents will apply, as both bosses must die at roughly the same time, and there is no mechanic preventing the raid from stacking the bosses. The Level 90 talent choice will be entirely dependent on what strategies emerge, and how adds are handled.

The "No Ice Lance build" should be avoided, as Ice Lance Icon Ice Lance's cleave is invaluable on this encounter.

4.2. Tips

These will be added after clears in the Heroic week.

5. Uu'nat, Harbinger of the Void

5.1. Talents

Due to the raid hostility mechanics of this fight, specifically Gift of N'Zoth: Lunacy Icon Gift of N'Zoth: Lunacy, it is unwise to run Splitting Ice Icon Splitting Ice. Comet Storm Icon Comet Storm and Frozen Orb Icon Frozen Orb should both be held to avoid unnecessary friendly fire.

The "No Ice Lance build" should be fine to use on Uu'nat as, for Mages, it is a single target fight.

5.2. Tips

Blink Icon Blink can be used to evade Piercing Gaze of N'Zoth Icon Piercing Gaze of N'Zoth.

More tips will be added after clears in the Heroic week.
