9.2 NEW RAID: SEPULCHER OF THE FIRST ONES

We are getting a new raid called Sepulcher of the first ones.
This raid has 11 bosses and is time gated. 

The reason for the timegating is because you are entering a story when you enter the raid.

The last boss (boss 8) is Anduin. 

 

Second week of raid launch
This is week is when mythic difficutly comes out. 
The last 3 bosses are unlocked. 
You need to rescue Anduin most likely in order to unlock this raid chapter.
The last boss (boss 11) is the Jailer. 


The raid environment

Morgan Day:

"As we were talking about the scope, scale and cosmic nature of the Sepulcher and Zereth Mortis, we felt that design didn’t fit the fantasy here. To my knowledge, we’ve never really done this before, but when you zone in after defeating the first boss in the Sepulcher, you actually need to take a flight path to the next boss in the instance. As you travel, you get to see all the epic scenery, huge structures in the raid, and really get the sense of scale and fantasy that we’re trying to convey.

In the wings themselves, there’s a lot of fun encounters. One of the names we gave one is like the “3D Printer Wing”. It’s constantly creating new things and prototyping these creatures, and one of the bosses in that wing actually is a prototype of the Pantheon of Death. You’ll see a ‘version 0.1’ of, say, the Archon, or Denathrius, a whole council of prototypes of those creatures… it’s just so much cool and unique things to explore within the Sepulcher."
