Do we know where the raid entrance portal will be located?

Switches between Uldum and Vale of Eternal Blossoms based on where the Assault is at the time.

I’ve always been a great fan of the whole Old God setting, as someone who loves HP Lovecraft it’s the most anticipated Raid ever.r
It just looks amazing, I like it that we actually fight our way through N’Zoths Body itself. If the Raid encounters are also though and interessting then I’ll forget everything bad about this expansion. I cant dislike an expansion with a whole Old God Patch.

The raid portal is in whichever zone has an active Old God Assault.

Looks like babby’s first Lovecraft with the same structural flair as Antorus.

However, behind the eye are something called “DOODAD_CULTISTSIGIL” and have the interact gear icon on them. What could these be for?r

Please, merciful Blizz, let there be a skip in this 12-boss raid. Maybe even two.

I’m right there with you. I love the Black Empire aesthetic. As much as I dig this new raid I’ll be bummed if we don’t get an Old God expansion at some point, or at least more Old God stuff in the future.

Drest’agath’s room looks like you’re inside Yogg’s mouth or something.

They introduced the idea of there being a greater power behind the old gods in the chronicle, I can’t imagine why they’d do that if not to mean that they could keep drawing from this well even if N’Zoth is removed from the picture.

should be a zone, not just a raid.

I actually can’t imagine this environment being very fun to quest in because of all the spaces you wouldn’t be able to mount inside, and it certainly wouldn’t be flying enabled.

It alternates location? Poor Vulpera raiders, won’t be able to park their Camp at THE raid entrance, hahaha.

So, Ny’alotha has no quest area ala Argus, you only enter it for the raid?r
r
That’s, uh, weird.

As a member of a guild that only raids twice a week, I really hope that progression will be somewhat faster than EP, on a boss by boss basis. Bosses especially like Ashvane, Zaq’ul and Azshara were incredibly difficult fights to learn/master the mechanics. That said, this raid looks like it might be one of the best raids of all time. I just hope there are no fights with mechanics like Azshara. Just too many mechanics honestly with almost no room for any error.

I LOVE that there are 12 bosses, but holy crap, I wonder how we will get any time to practice on the latter bosses in this raid if they all take a while to learn.

My guild got through radiance really easily, but Ashvane onward has taken us quite a bit of time. I know we aren’t some spectacular guild, but I do feel like we are fairly representative of most casual raiding guilds.
