Raid Boss Guides/Tactics: Ny´alotha, the Waking City

When does Ny´alotha unlock/release?

Patch 8.3 comes in early January. Normally, the raid unlocks two weeks after the patch releases. Stay tuned for when it´s announced.

Background Story

Ny´alotha, the sleeping city, has awakened for the first time in millennia. N´Zoth sits on his throne within the Black Empire. His armies flood from their dark halls, once again wreaking havoc on Azeroth. As the world shudders from these invasions, a desperate plan is hatched. Champions from the Horde and Alliance are gathered to face this ancient enemy within his own realm for the final confrontation that will decide the fate of the universe.

Loot ilvl

Patch 8.3 will no longer drop Warforged or Titanforged gear. Instead, there will be a chance that the gear becomes corrupted. Check out my guide about what corrupted gear is.
