Continuing with the Legion 7.2 recap, we look at the new Tomb of Sargeras raid, the Cathedral of Eternal Night dungeon, and various Legion dungeon updates.
Tomb of Sargeras
The Tomb of Sargeras is a new 9-boss raid within the Legion-corrupted Elven edifice on the Broken Shore. Gul’dan originally unlocked the ancient wards that prevented the Legion from invading through this powerful tomb. Players must return and use the five Pillars of Creation* to shut the Legion out, buying mortals time in a much greater war across the cosmos.
*The fifth pillar is the Eye of Aman’thul, which comes from the Nighthold raid last known to release around January 2017.
The raid descends into four main sections, including (names tentative) a “dark cathedral” entrance, “flooded caverns” going into the Naga-filled depths, an “Elven wing” spared the brunt of Legion corruption, and the deepest chamber, where Aegywynn once defeated the Avatar of Sargeras.
So far, the raid features some pretty iconic characters, including the Avatar of Sargeras, although empty of the Titan’s soul and only a fraction of his power, and Kil’jaeden, who orchestrated the invasion of Azeroth.
Cathedral of Eternal Night
The Cathedral of Eternal Night is a new 4-boss, 5-man dungeon that climbs up the Tomb of Sargeras. It features a Heroic, Mythic, and Mythic+ version. Players will use the Aegis of Aggramar to unlock the upper reaches.
Players start on the balcony overlooking the “dark cathedral” section of the raid instance, working in a circular fashion up concentric ring levels. Along the way, they will find demons, ancient Elven gardens, monuments to Elune, and other edifices.
Legion Dungeon Updates
In addition to the new dungeon, Arcway and Court of Stars will be given new Heroic versions that players can queue for. To keep the launch dungeons relevant, their difficulty and rewards will be increased. This change will also increase the difficulty and rewards of Mythic+ versions of all launch dungeons.
Additionally, the recently released Return to Karazhan dungeon will be split into an Upper and Lower level, and also feature a Heroic version.
