Talent Cheatsheet


The Restless Cabal



  • Two players will get afflicted by Crushing Doubt Icon Crushing Doubt every 60 seconds. It will deal ever increasing damage and explode raid-wide upon expiration. The cooldowns of Cenarion Ward Icon Cenarion Ward and Swiftmend Icon Swiftmend line up really well for this.
  • Dispelling the Promises of Power Icon Promises of Power debuff will deal damage to you on Heroic difficulty and higher. Make sure you do not have the debuff yourself and check your Health before doing so.
  • You can and should soak Void Crash Icon Void Crash once it gets smaller to help your damage dealers move less.
  • On Mythic difficulty, healing players soaking the Storm Essence Icon Storm Essence is extremely important, as dropping below 25% will instantly kill them.
  • Every time Fa'thuul the Feared activates a rune, an Eldritch Revelation Icon Eldritch Revelation will spawn. The Witness the End Icon Witness the End AoE from them will require some moderate healing to ensure the raid is topped up for the next AoE in 6 seconds (on Heroic) or 12 seconds (on Mythic). It is mostly harmless after Trident of Deep Ocean activation, however adds spawned after Tempest Caller or Void Stone activations can become quite nasty.
  • Save all your raid cooldowns for Storm of Annihilation Icon Storm of Annihilation. Start with Incarnation: Tree of Life Icon Incarnation: Tree of Life and Innervate Icon Innervate about 3-4% before your raid is planning to make one of the bosses activate Tempest Caller. As soon as the damage starts, use Tranquility Icon Tranquility, then follow up with Wild Growth Icon Wild Growth and Flourish Icon Flourish immediately after.
  • The entire raid will be healing immune after one of the bosses activates Void Stone and gets the Umbral Shell Icon Umbral Shell shield. You can spend this time helping your raid bring it down.
