On this page, you will find tips, tricks, and strategies tailored to your Holy Priest 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.

For the Holy Priest Boss Advice, we got together with Shelanne, moderator for Warcraft Priests and author of their popular Quick-Start Holy Priest guide.

As Crucible of Storms is a new raid, the current information is based on PTR testing and theorycrafting using Warcraft Logs and will be updated over time. As we experience the bosses in their live and properly finished states, additional tips and advanced techniques will be added.

The Restless Cabal Uu'nat, Harbinger of the Void

2. Holy Priest Boss Advice in Crucible of Storms

Keep in mind that, although your cooldowns may be mentioned in specific parts of this guide, you should always try to coordinate with your healing team and raid leader when possible to find the optimal place to cast these for your chosen strategy. While this primarily applies to Divine Hymn Icon Divine Hymn, Holy Word: Salvation Icon Holy Word: Salvation, and Guardian Spirit Icon Guardian Spirit, you may sometimes be asked to use Apotheosis Icon Apotheosis or Symbol of Hope Icon Symbol of Hope at specific times as well.

All talent choices made for each boss are suggestions intended on best dealing with the specific mechanics of that encounter. Due to Holy Priest having quite balanced talents, for the level 75, level 90, and level 100 talents, there will be multiple viable talent options for many of the encounters.

3. The Restless Cabal

3.1. Talents

3.2. Tips

In this encounter, there are three relics of power that the bosses will activate upon reaching 75%, 50%, and 25% health.

Because usage of the Void Stone applies Embrace of the Void Icon Embrace of the Void to the raid, which prevents healing done, aim to top the raid up as much as possible prior to it being used, ideally with a raid cooldown such as Divine Hymn Icon Divine Hymn or Holy Word: Salvation Icon Holy Word: Salvation. Use the time the shield is up and healing is prevented to help contribute to damage with Smite Icon Smite while regenerating Mana.

Tempest Caller creates Storm of Annihilation Icon Storm of Annihilation which deals ticking Nature damage for 15 seconds to the entire raid, and kills anyone who drops below 25% health with Annihilate Icon Annihilate. It is important your raid is kept healthy during this ability with raid cooldowns, such as Divine Hymn Icon Divine Hymn or Holy Word: Salvation Icon Holy Word: Salvation.

Promises of Power Icon Promises of Power does grant extra damage and this is a buff that should not be immediately dispelled from all raid members. Coordinate dispelling of this debuff with your raid team to ensure appropriate uptime without risking any deaths. Dispelling it will also deal damage to the player dispelling it, so make sure you are healthy before dispelling it.

If you find you have slow members of your raid that are having trouble moving out with Crushing Doubt Icon Crushing Doubt, you can use Angelic Feather Icon Angelic Feather to give them a movement speed boost.

4. Uu'nat, Harbinger of the Void

4.1. Talents

4.2. Tips

Tempest Caller from The Restless Cabal is back and it still causes Annihilate Icon Annihilate to kill anyone who drops below 25% health when affected by it. It is important your raid is kept healthy during this ability with raid cooldowns, such as Divine Hymn Icon Divine Hymn or Holy Word: Salvation Icon Holy Word: Salvation.

During Phase 3, Uu'nat will cast Gift of N'Zoth: Lunacy Icon Gift of N'Zoth: Lunacy at 100 energy. This prevents healing done to allies for the duration and you should aim to have your raid healthy with raid cooldowns, such as Divine Hymn Icon Divine Hymn or Holy Word: Salvation Icon Holy Word: Salvation, prior to Uu'nat reaching 100 energy.
