Raid Preview - The Nighthold
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
The journey through Suramar has been fraught with intrigue and danger as the heroes of Azeroth have fought to help reclaim this shining city. It’s time to take the next step and face the challenges within the Nighthold.

Minimum Level: 110
Location: Suramar
Bosses: 10

The largest structure in the Broken Isles and among the grandest in all of Azeroth, the Nighthold stands as a testament to the achievements of the nightborne civilization. Centered around the Nightwell, the fount of arcane power that has sustained Suramar for centuries, these grounds were built as a haven from the worries of the world. But as a felstorm churns above the former temple of Elune across the bay, and Gul’dan himself now resides within the palace’s walls, those worries now begin—not end—here.

Developer Insights: Even though Gul’dan awaits atop the main spire of the Nighthold, and even though mighty Legion adversaries like Tichondrius and Krosus lurk within the walls of the compound, the Nighthold is not a traditional demonic raid. It stands as a testament to perhaps the greatest civilization Azeroth has ever seen: the pinnacle of elven magic and sophistication.

Just as our artists and designers approached the creation of the city of Suramar with the aim of evoking the feel and bustle of a living city under occupation, the dungeon team wanted to make sure the Nighthold really felt like the grand palace of Suramar. From botanical gardens to guest quarters, from an observatory to chambers enclosing the power source of nightborne civilization, we tried to build a grand royal court and then consider how the Legion’s presence would affect and transform that foundation. Many of our raid zones are dark and oppressive places, by necessity—the domain of Xavius cannot be bright and cheery—but the Nighthold offers a raid environment that is both beautiful and deadly.

Raid Schedule:
  • Tuesday, January 17: Nighthold Normal and Heroic difficulties open.
  • Tuesday, January 24: Nighthold Mythic difficulty and Raid Finder Wing 1 (Arcing Aqueducts) open.
  • Tuesday, February 7: Nighthold Raid Finder Wing 2 (Royal Athenaeum) opens.
  • Tuesday, February 21: Nighthold Raid Finder Wing 3 (Nightspire) opens.
  • Tuesday, March 7: Nighthold Raid Finder Wing 4 (Betrayer’s Rise) opens.

The Nightwell


Skorpyron: Deep within the foundations of the Nighthold, beneath the sea, lie long-forgotten vaults that give access to the Nightwell itself. This monstrous armored scorpid has made its home in one of these vaults. Infused with the power of the Nightwell and surrounded by a teeming brood, Skorpyron presents a serious complication to an otherwise promising back entry to the Nighthold.


Chronomatic Anomaly: As the power to fuel an entire civilization courses from the earth, the cavern at the base of the Nightwell has become a maelstrom of raw energy. Born from this chaotic flux, the Chronomatic Anomaly is an embodiment of the power of the Eye of Aman’thul. As it lashes out with energy attacks, the bursts of energy warp the very flow of time.


Trilliax: Trilliax, once proud servant to the nightborne aristocracy, has been discarded and left to slowly deteriorate. While an unwavering will to carry out its tasks remains, the passage of time has splintered this construct’s personality matrix. It now unpredictably switches from one mode to the next, ranging from doting caretaker to homicidal sterilizer, craving recognition and validation from a master that no longer exists.

The Nighthold


Spellblade Aluriel: Aluriel always had an affinity for magic. She rose through the ranks of the Nightguard effortlessly, having a natural talent with the sword. But no matter how strong she became, she wanted more. She studied with the mages at the University of Suramar, spending her days in combat training and her evenings in the artificery. She forged her weapons and armor in the Nightwell, weaving magic spells into the precious metals. She is the first Spellblade, adept in the schools of Fire, Frost, and Arcane.


Krosus: This colossal doom lord, one of the largest and mightiest creatures in the armies of the Legion, was defeated at the Broken Shore through the combined might of the greatest heroes of the Horde and the Alliance. Having recovered from his wounds, Krosus emerges from the bay between the Nighthold and the Tomb of Sargeras to crush anyone who would oppose the Legion.

Shal’dorei Terrace


High Botanist Tel’arn: From his youth, the nightborne Tel’arn was fascinated by plant life: the resilience and adaptability of weeds, the ability of simple grass to harness the power of the sun, the way a tree may be divided into two, or two branches grafted into one. Aided by the energies of the Nightwell, he has transformed himself to the point that he is scarcely recognizable as a nightborne elf. He now considers himself something far, far greater.

Captain’s Quarters


Tichondrius: The dreadlord Tichondrius, once leader of the nathrezim, was slain by the newly awakened power of none other than Illidan Stormrage. Reconstituted in the Twisting Nether, Tichondrius returns to watch over Gul’dan on behalf of the Legion, ensuring that the orc warlock does not once again fail his masters.

Astromancer’s Rise


Star Augur Etraeus: The nightborne astromancer Etraeus has devoted long years of research to scouring the skies of Azeroth, seeking answers to the great mysteries of the universe. His scrying has shown him worlds beyond our ken, and the power of the Nightwell allows him to draw upon the essence of those worlds to amplify his own powers.

The Nightspire


Grand Magistrix Elisande: Elisande once distinguished herself by resisting the Legion. She and her highborne followers broke away from Queen Azshara and the dark path she was taking, harnessing the power of the Eye of Aman’Thul to create the Nightwell, protecting Suramar from the Sundering. But over ten thousand years later, the Legion’s arrival offered her no such recourse. She has cast her lot with the demons, hoping to once again use the power of the Nightwell—this time in a very different sense—to save her people.

The Font of Night


Gul’dan: The chain of events set in motion when Garrosh escaped to Draenor has continued, unbroken for all its twists and turns, leading to this very moment. Thwarted in Draenor, Gul’dan now stands on the precipice of achieving ultimate victory on behalf of his Legion masters. Standing atop the Nighthold, as the vortex of fel energy swirls in the skies overhead, the outcast orc warlock awaits his destiny.

    Treasure Goblins can also spawn in other places.

    ok, so how does it work?
    i just cleared a heroic dungeon, goblin spawned, killed him entered the portal.
    i got 3 charms from the cow king, killed him a 2nd time => no loot.
    Killed a bunch of non elite inside the "cow lvl" no loot

    Entered the CowLvl 3 times now
    It seems you get loot every time you kill a goblin, The CowKing seems to have a lockout (24h?)

    How can i get more loot from this?
    Do i have to enter a second time or do i have to wait 24h or something?
    Could be a daily cooldown on loot.

    Whelp that's a garbage event, Goblin dies instantly, Mobs inside the portal die instantly, Cow King dies instantly.

    Done in under a minute.

    They couldn't even add a guitar animation to the toy, You literally just stand there doing a casting animation.

    The difference is there's an achievement for starting the event in Diablo at level 1 and you can up the difficulty to make it a challenge

    There's an item in the list that allows you to combine 10 scrolls of Town POrtal into a Tome of Town Portal. (EDIT: Item is called Blank Diabolic Tome)


    I killed the goblin and enetered the Secret Cow level and killed the Cow King and the loot from both those was (among other things) 4 scrolls of Town Portal and the item to combine them.


    I *think* you also get the Twelve String Guitar toy as a guaranteed first time kill drop from the Cow King, cause it was learning that item that gave me the 20th Anniversary FoS. I doubt Blizz would put that FoS behind something that not everyone could get.

    Loot the Goblins and the Cow King.
    Get 10x Scroll of Town Portal and 1x Blank Diabolic Tome to combine and make the Hearthstone toy.
    You can only loot the Cow King once a day, just like world events, but you can kill the Goblins over and over to farm for the scrolls.
    (currently farming in the sewers with 1 spawn every 5 minutes).

    And the event only runs until the 11th? May the RNG gods smile upon me!

    You are wrong I did this with my priest 101 ilvl. Mobs inside were 100lvl, when I have enter inside.

    Still there is one problem :P I got instantly killed by ret paladin 110 ilvl

    As for the model show in the post, that was the goblin back in the Beta test we could find in Dalaran sometimes (never had chance to kill it QQ), but on live they are using the model of the Diablo Treasure Goblin pet (awarded to players who also purchased the Collector's Edition of Reaper of Souls)

    Yeah but it's all around the same benchmark. Can't do it as a level 20 trial for example, which was what I wanted to do.
