The Shrine in daylight.

The Shrine of the Storm (or the Shrine of the Storms)[1] is a monumental temple located on an island in eastern Stormsong Valley. It is the seat of House Stormsong and the stronghold of the Tidesages.[2]

It is also a dungeon, while the Crucible of Storms raid is located underneath it.

According to Xal'atath, the area of the Precipice of Oblivion, where Storm's End and the Shrine of Shadows is found, has had countless names over the ages and echoes with ancient power.[3]

Adventure Guide

The Shrine of the Storm is a seat of power for both House Stormsong and the tidesages. Here, blessings upon the fleet are performed to ensure that the Kul Tiran fleet knows no equals in combat. Yet, a dark force has corrupted these sacred grounds and threatens to steal control of the Kul Tiran Fleet forever.


The adventurers enter the Shrine of the Storm through the Tidewater Sanctum.

  • Alliance Brother Pike says: The shrine must be cleansed of Lord Stormsong's evil, heroes.
Brother Pike says: Tread carefully. Some dark presence watches us even now.
  • Horde Rexxar says: With the power of the Tide Pearl, our fleets will be unstoppable.
Rexxar says: The Alliance must not claim this prize. All who oppose us will fall!
Rexxar says: Now...let the hunt begin!

After attempting to confront Lord Stormsong, he summoned Aqu'sirr into Tidewater Sanctum to defeat the group.

Notes and trivia

  • The Shrine looks similar to the original concept for the Dragon Isles.
  • Trying to enter the uninstanced version of the Shrine causes you to be given the debuff Choking Fog and be teleported out to one of two locations:


This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

Given the night elf heritage found within Kul Tiras[4] and how thousands of years ago, ten magisters were exiled from Highborne society (and presumably Suramar) for seeking power in the void and eventually found Kosumoth the Hungering,[5] a servant of N'Zoth, just northwest of the islands of Kul Tiras, and below the shrine is an extension of N'Zoth's body, and the presence of a moonwell in Sagehold that holds the  [Rod of Tides] it is possible that other Highborne exiles who dabbled in the void prior to Azshara's bargain with N'Zoth settled somewhere to conduct Void rituals.
