    New Raid: Vault of the Incarnates



    Unravel the mysteries of the Vault of the Incarnates

    Vault of the Incarnates is the first raid players will experience in Dragonflight, featuring eight all-new boss encounters.



    The Primalists breached the Titan prison used to hold the Incarnates for millennia. Within, Raszageth performs a foul ritual to unleash her siblings so together they can purge the world of the Titans' influence. The champions of Azeroth must assault this impregnable fortress and break their defenses to end this threat. While many could fall, defeat condemns all the realms to the Incarnates' reign of fire and blood.



    Raid Release Schedule:

    • Week of December 12: Normal, Heroic, and Mythic Vault of the Incarnates will open with the weekly maintenance for each region
    • Week of December 19: Vault of the Incarnates Raid Finder Wing 1 opens
    • Week of January 2: Vault of the Incarnates Raid Finder Wing 2 opens
    • Week of January 16: Vault of the Incarnates Raid Finder Wing 3 opens

    Cross-Faction Mythic and Hall of Fame Eligibility

    Cross-faction Mythic Vault of the Incarnates will be available from the start. Hall of Fame entries will require at least 16 out of 20 raiders to be from the same guild and faction to be eligible for rewards. See this support article for more information.

    New Dungeon Rotation

    Dragonflight Season 1 will feature a new dungeon rotation for Mythic+. Four dungeons from Dragonflight are included, and four returning dungeons from previous expansions. Here’s the full lineup:

    • Ruby Life Pools
    • The Nokhud Offensive
    • The Azure Vault
    • Algeth’ar Academy
    • Halls of Valor (from the Legion™ expansion)
    • Court of Stars (from the Legion™ expansion)
    • Shadowmoon Burial Grounds (from the Warlords of Draenor™ expansion)
    • Temple of the Jade Serpent (from the Mists of Pandaria™ expansion)



    Court of Stars, one of the dungeons returning in Dragonflight Season 1

    M+ and PvP Season 1 will also begin the week of December 12 with regional maintenance. For Dragonflight, there will be no loot caps for Mythic+ on the first week, as Mythic Vault of the Incarnates will open at the same time.

    Mythic+ Dungeon Affixes

    For Season 1, we're introducing a new affix, but the Necrotic and Inspiring affixes won't be making an appearance. More information on this new affix will be released at a later date.

    A Rewarding New Season Ahead

    Dragonflight Season 1 will feature familiar exclusive rewards such as the Ahead of the Curve and Cutting Edge achievements for raids, Keystone Master achievements, rewards for Mythic+, and Gladiator rewards for PvP. Closer to the start of Season 1, we’ll share more information on seasonal rewards and how to obtain them.



    Hic Sunt Dracones—"Here be dragons.”

    The journey to the Dragon Isles is about to begin. We look forward to joining you in a new age of adventure in Dragonflight. See you in Azeroth!

    I wish they’d stop staggering lfr. If normal, heroic and mythic are going to be releasing at the same time I don’t see the reasoning behind the delay.

    Yeah. And why so long between each wing? At least release one per week if they really need to delay it.

    The reasoning is simple. They want to allow raiders to finish it first before LFR does.

    Wrong. They want to give real raiders the ability to clear the raid first. People need to stop with the conspiracy theory nonsense.

    I'm sure it's a little of column A and a bit of B in this case.

    No they weren't. THe devs absolutely do not care about mau's. Their focus is on the game, not how much money the game makes. Again, people need to stop with the conspiracy theories.

    An interesting raid system, this has already happened and it is convenient for WoW Boost. You can quickly and easily equip your character and get different rewards in the raid
