The launch of Tomb of Sargeras, the long-awaited World of Warcraft raid, is just around the corner. Although Blizzard is yet to specify a date, company representatives hinted at a possible release in the middle of June. The beliefs that the big day is approaching were also fueled by the preview to all nine bosses, including the big bad of Legion Kil’Jaeden. Players’ objective is to kill them all for loot.
Although the raid was added to the game data in Patch 7.2 its launch was put off to a later date. Blizzard justified that decision with the desire to fully prepare the players for the story prior to the release. According to an announcement made by the developer, the main objective of Tomb of Sargeras was to reflect the “epic façade that towers over the Broken Shore”. Still, Blizzard reassured that this would not come at the expense of the raids variety.
Based on the bosses from the preview, avid WoW fans confirmed that the above-mentioned concept was successfully incorporated.
As most players expected, the Kil’Jaeden is to be the final opponent at the end of the raid. Currently, the Kil’Jaeden is the Burning Legion leader, so the Tomb of Sargeras serves as a clear indication that it will play a key role in the future development of the World of Warcraft story.
The Tomb of Sargeras will be available in Raid Finder, Normal, Heroic, and Mythic difficulty levels. It is important to note that in Mythic difficulty players will be able to voluntarily switch realms while under 50% health.
There will be different sections – a sealed part of the tomb, Naga section, and Dark Cathedral.
The floors for the raid will be the The Guardian’s Sanctum, Felstorm’s Breach, Chamber of the Moon, Terrace of the Moon, The Abyssal Throne, The Twisting Nether, Chamber of the Avatar, and the Lair of Harjatan.
Over the last few weekends, the raid was available for testing, too.
