After months of waiting for World of Warcraft: Legion players, it’s time to stick it to Kil’Jaeden. The full raid unlock schedule has been posted by Blizzard in an update to their Raid Preview blog.
Tuesday, June 20th is when we’ll get our first look at the raid on live servers. The Normal and Heroic difficulties will open, and give guilds racing to get world firsts their first checkpoints to hit.
The following week, Mythic will open – and as this is the hardest available difficulty for the raid, the top guilds in the world will be gunning for the World First title here. Among the hopefuls are Method, Serenity, From Scratch, and Limit – all of those on the Horde side. The top Alliance guilds are Prestige Gaming, Scrubusters, Danish Terrace, and Easy. The top guilds from the last set of raids, Tier 19, were mostly from Europe, though Limit (#5) is from US servers.
The guilds have, of course, been busy testing the heroic versions of bosses as they became available for test weekends. The Mythic difficulty has been shrouded in some secrecy to retain the challenge for progression raids.
Tomb of Sargeras will award Tier 20 gear, and the item levels are appropriately advanced from past content. The first eight bosses will award item levels 885 in LFR, 900 Normal, 915 Heroic, and 930 Mythic. Loot from Kil’Jaeden will be 10 levels higher, at all difficulties.
Raid Finder will also open the same week as Mythic difficulty, meaning those without guilds or who are hoping for a slightly more casual experience can get in on the fun as well. The nine bosses don’t unlock all at once and are split into four wings, with Kil’Jaeden occupying his own wing on August 8.
