Blizzard Entertainment surprised MMORPG fans around the world when it finally announced the release date for World of Warcraft’s next expansion, Dragonflight. Along with the announcement of the November 28 release date, also came more information about the expansion’s first raid, the Vault of the Incarnates.
The raid will be available two weeks after the release date of WoW Dragonflight. The kicker came when Blizzard revealed that on the first day of the raid’s launch, cross-faction would be available so Horde and Alliance players can team up to tackle what’s inside.
Initially, the game’s developers brought cross-faction gameplay to WoW retail with patch 9.2.5, not only with raids, but also Torghast runs, dungeons, and RBGs. Now, with the first foray into Dragonflight, Blizzard continues to push for more cross-factional content early on and bring harmony to Azeroth’s long-struggling factions.
December 12 opens Normal, Heroic, and Mythic difficulties for Vault of the Incarnates. On top of that, Mythic+ and PvP Season 1 also start on the same day, as well as a new dungeon rotation list for Mythic+. Here are all the new and old dungeons:
- Ruby Life Reserves
- Nokhud’s offensive
- the blue vault
- Algeth’ar Academy
- Halls of Valor (Legion)
- Court of Stars (Legion)
- Shadowmoon Graveyard (Warlords of Draenor)
- Temple of the Jade Serpent (Mists of Pandaria)
As Blizzard continues to encourage factional play, it continues to break down all barriers in the game so that World of Warcraft players can enjoy game content together, regardless of which faction they chose from the start.
