For the object in Nazjatar, see Sharas'dal, Scepter of Tides (Nazjatar).

Sharas'dal, Scepter of Tides is one of the artifacts used by restoration shamans in World of Warcraft: Legion. Equipping it will automatically place the  [Shield of the Sea Queen] in your off hand.

An illusion of the scepter was used by the naga as bait for a trap in Nazjatar to draw the Alliance and Horde in range of the Blackwater Behemoth.[1]


A powerful scepter created by Queen Azshara long ago, before her transformation into a naga. The scepter swirls with waters from the Well of Eternity prior to its corruption, granting the scepter great magical and restorative powers. The Scepter of Azshara was lost during the War of the Ancients, shortly before Azshara and many of her followers were swallowed by the sea. Taken up by surviving night elves who knew nothing of the power it truly held, it was buried with an unknown priestess in a family tomb in Azsuna, waiting to be discovered by someone that could unlock its true potential.[2]

Notes and trivia

  • Sharas'dal was originally named Scepter of Azshara during the Legion alpha testing, but it was then changed to Caduceus of Azshara (possibly because an item called  [Scepter of Azshara] already existed), and then to Sharas'dal, Scepter of the Tides.


Patch changes

  • Legion Hotfix (2016-09-02): The Sharas'dal, Scepter of Tides buff Queen's Decree is no longer dispellable.
  • Legion Patch 7.0.3 (2016-07-19): Added.
