Crucible of Storms Raid Strategy Guides and Top Builds
16/04/2019 à 01:48
Crucible of Storms, the mini raid which bridges the gap between patch 8.1 and 8.2, releases today and as usual we have detailed strategy guides for both of the new encounters, written by FatbossTV. We've also compiled tips, tricks, and best builds for each specialization, written by our own class guide authors. Overcome N'Zoth's trial by learning what these new bosses do and how to defeat them.
Crucible of Storms Strategy Guides
Our Crucible of Storms boss strategy guides cover each encounter abilities, loot, phase strategies, and role responsibilities in detail. They also include written tips, important mechanics with diagrams, images, and gifs to help you succeed in the new raid.
These guides are authored by
, long known for their video strategy guides. They began writing raid guides for Wowhead in
, and have authored Normal, Heroic, Mythic Raid, and Dungeon guides for everything in
Battle for Azeroth
These guides include details for all raid difficulties, drawn from PTR testing and dungeon journal analysis, and will be updated with more tips and videos as players progress through the Crucible of Storms!
Specialization Tips and Top Builds
Boss guides are great, but some players just want to know what talents, gear, azerite, tricks they should use to have the best chance of success in the new raid, and we have you covered with our Crucible of Storms Raid Tips pages. Each specialization has a page dedicated to optimizing its performance within the new raid, including talent recommendations, gear advice, and the Top Builds widget, courtesy of Warcraft Logs. Once players start defeating bosses in the new raid, the Top Builds widget will automatically compile talents and Azerite traits used by the top performing players for each spec, giving you an idea of what most successful players are doing inside the raid. We'll be revisiting these pages to add new tips and tricks as strategies are formed and once Mythic difficulty releases next week; you can see the latest changes and updates by checking the Changelog at the top of each page.

Where does it come from?
We use the
API to pull data from the top 100 Heroic and Mythic ranks from the most recent patch on Warcraft Logs (currently 8.1.5). We'll start with Heroic difficulty and flip the switch over to Mythic once the bosses are defeated. You can dive into further detail with Warcraft Logs comprehensive
to create further breakdowns, compare reports, see group compositions for each kill, and more.

Although Crucible of Storms doesn't have any new Azerite, all of the item drops include special buffs, debuffs, shields, damage procs, and some even introduce a negative effect to go along with the corresponding benefit. Our
Crucible of Storms Loot Guide
details all of these new items, or you can take a look at our individual class gear guides for specific info on which spec wants what item from the new raid.
Remember, the Crucible of Storms isn't a full tier and doesn't drop Azerite, so don't forget about our
Battle of Dazar'alor
guides and raid tips!
Raid Tools and Analyzing Your Performance
There are many ways to getting better at raiding, and while understanding the encounter and your specialization's role within it is one of the most important ones, being able to review your performance will help you better understand what is happening, what went right, and what went wrong.
