The Crucible of Storms is a 2-boss raid which was expected to be released with Patch 8.1 centered around the old gods in Stormsong Valley, but did not make it into Patch 8.1. It is expected to be similar to the 3-boss Trial of Valor raid in Legion. It was released April 16, 2019. Although it was implemented in Patch 8.1, it didn't become available until late Patch 8.1.5 timeframe.
