    Complete the Battle for Mount Hyjal and Black Temple Attunements

    Those who want to brave the two new raid instances must complete the required attunement quests first. The required quests must be completed once per character.

    Battle for Mount Hyjal Attunement: Gaining entry to the Hyjal Summit

    To access the Battle for Mount Hyjal, you must first travel to the Caverns of Time in Tanaris and find Soridormi. Soridormi will offer the quest “The Vials of Eternity” to those who are at least Revered with the Keepers of Time. You can earn reputation with the Keepers of Time in the Old Hillsbrad Foothills and Black Morass dungeons in the Caverns of time.

    Complete the quest "The Vials of Eternity" by defeating Kael'thas Sunstrider in Tempest Keep and Lady Vashj in Serpentshine Cavern and you will be attuned to the Battle for Mount Hyjal raid.

    Black Temple Attunement: Gaining entry to the Black Temple

    To earn a chance to face Illidan Stormrage, travel to Shadowmoon Valley and seek out Anchorite Ceyla at the Altar of Sha'tar (for the Aldor) or Arcanist Thelis at the Sanctum of the Stars (for the Scryers). Complete the following quests:

    • Tablets of Baa'ri
    • Oronu the Elder
    • The Ashtongue Corruptors
    • The Warden's Cage
    • Proof of Allegiance
    • Akama
    • Seer Udalo
    • A Mysterious Portent
    • The Ata'mal Terrace
    • Akama's Promises
      • After completing "Akama's Promise", the quest chain continues inside the Serpentshrine Cavern raid instance in Coilfang Reservoir (Zangarmarsh). Look for Seer Olum after defeating Fathom-Lord Karathress to pick up the next quest.
    • The Secret Compromised
    • Ruse of the Ashtongue
    • An Artifact From the Past
      • “An Artifact From the Past” requires entry into the Battle for Mount Hyjal raid. The attunement quest for that raid must be completed in order to gain entry to the Black Temple.
    • The Hostage Soul
    • Entry into the Black Temple
    • A Distraction for Akama

    Completing "A Distraction for Akama" will award you the Medallion of Karabor, which allows its wearer entry into the Black Temple.

    The Betrayer awaits those foolish enough to face him. You are not prepared. . . .

    Yes, like it was with SSC+TK. EU should have it wednesday night at 24h. Ppl either werent around for SSC+TK release or are just happy to throw confusion into the process. I'm not a big fan of these global releases, but until they show consistency from phase to phase as they've been doing, i won't complain.

    See the tweet below and document yourself before commenting in "confusion"

    Sadly .. no. At least not according to a dev's tweet https://twitter.com/brianbirming/sta...418262017?s=21

    He even confirms in the tweet that it was moved because of Asia.
