DISCLAIMER: The tips and recommendations listed here are only my educated opinion, so strategies can change as we develop a better understanding of each fight. If you have any disagreements, feedback, or questions, please feel free to DM me on Discord (JudgeJames#0001).
Miscellaneous Tips:

- Remember opportunity cost: time spent in Ghost Wolf is time spent not doing damage, but GCDs spent casting Earth Shield are GCDs spent not doing damage.
- Be more comfortable with playing Wind Rush Totem. Bring raid utility and get better at playing defensively without Nature's Guardian.
- Maximize your mitigation to support your healers. It is also okay to cast Healing Surge.
