On this page, you will find tips, tricks, and strategies tailored to your Protection Paladin 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. Crucible of Storms Boss Tips for Protection Paladins

This page will focus on how to best prepare as a Protection Paladin for the Crucible of Storms encounters, rather than a general guide for the instance. These guides and their talent recommendations are purely for progression kills, allowing you to increase your chances of killing the bosses. Once you have killed a boss and are more familiar with the fight and feel comfortable with it, you may very well wish to change talents in order to do more damage.

This page will be heavily updated after the first couple of weeks of Heroic raiding being available as all recommendations are based on current PTR knowledge and is subject to change.

2. Talent Cheatsheet

The Restless Cabal Uu'nat, Harbinger of the Void

3. The Restless Cabal

3.1. Suggested Talents for Protection Paladins on The Restless Cabal

3.2. Protection Paladin Tips for The Restless Cabal

This fight will likely require a fair amount of interrupts on the Eldritch Revelation Icon Eldritch Revelation adds, so do not be afraid to help with interrupting close ones with Avenger's Shield Icon Avenger's Shield. When off-tanking, tanks should feel safe soaking the Void Crash Icon Void Crash once it has split at least once. Blessing of Spellwarding Icon Blessing of Spellwarding can be used on yourself or others to soak the initial Void Crash.

While you can play with Final Stand Icon Final Stand, it will definitely be very complicated doing so without taunting both bosses. Should this happen, it is almost a guaranteed wipe due to Aphotic Blast Icon Aphotic Blast.

More tips, as well as Mythic mode, will be added in the next few weeks.

4. Uu'nat, Harbinger of the Void

4.1. Suggested Talents for Protection Paladins on Uu'nat, Harbinger of the Void

4.2. Protection Paladin Tips for Uu'nat, Harbinger of the Void

Avenger's Shield Icon Avenger's Shield can be used to interrupt several Consume Essence Icon Consume Essence casts, helping to avoid them from healing, as well as stunning the Swarming Voidspawn when they spawn, as they seem to be able to be crowd controlled in many ways.

This fight features a lot of magic damage all around, and Blessing of Spellwarding Icon Blessing of Spellwarding will most certainly be useful in many situations, both on yourself and on other players.

More tips, as well as Mythic mode, will be added in the next few weeks.
