World of Warcraft: Legion launched all the way back in August, but Blizzard’s latest MMO expansion is still churning out tons of new content for end-game players to explore. The latest major patch introduced a new zone with a story that leads up to the raid of the Tomb of Sargeras. World of Warcraft players who have been grinding to raise their item levels will finally be able to start working through the new raid bosses starting June 20.
Like the other recent raids, the release of the Tomb of Sargeras content will be a bit staggered. This schedule gives raiding guilds a chance to get into the content and explore it first, before the players who use the Looking for Raid tool.
Here is the scheduled for the Tomb of Sargeras rollout…
Tuesday, Jun. 20 – Normal and Heroic Difficulties Open
Tuesday, Jun. 27 – Mythic difficulty and Raid Finder Wing 1– Gates of Hell (Goroth, Demonic Inquisition, Harjartan) Open
Tuesday, Jul. 11 – Raid Finder Wing 2– Wailing Halls (Mistress Sass’zine, Sisters of the Moon, Desolate Host) Opens
Tuesday, Jul. 25 – Raid Finder Wing 3– Chamber of the Avatar (Maiden of Vigilance, Avatar of Sargeras) Opens
Tuesday, Aug. 8 – Raid Finder Wing 4—Deceiver’s Fall (Kil’Jaeden) Opens
The new raid is jam-packed with nine bosses and boatloads of lore. Much of the Legion story has been leading up to this very encounter, so lots of players are very much looking forward to finally getting their hands on Kil’Jaeden. Although the more casual players will have to wait all the way until August 8 to take down Kil’Jaeden in a Looking For Raid group, it is still exciting that this content can be accessed without committing to a serious raiding guild.
The LRF tool is one of the biggest changes from the days of vanilla WoW and although some hardcore players don’t like it, it makes sticking around for the end-game much easier for casual gamers… Which in turn keeps more subscription dollars in Blizzard’s coffers.
