This Week in WoW: June 28, 2024

Catch up on all the latest World of Warcraft news from the last week!

Season of Discovery Phase 4 Goes Live July 11!

Season of Discovery Phase 4 is arriving July 11 and will launch worldwide at 1:00 pm PDT. Players will be able to level to 60, discover new class runes, enter the Molten Core raid dungeon to face Ragnaros, and more.

Join Associate Production Director Clayton Stone, Lead Software Engineer Nora Valletta,  and Senior Producer Josh Greenfield as they take you through more details of Season of Discovery Phase 4.

New World Event: Blackrock Eruption

The raw power of Ragnaros’ summoning is causing an upheaval in Blackrock Mountain. Players can experience more of the story behind this upheaval and take part in the recurring event and the associated quests while this event is active.

This timed event occurs every 2 hours with additional creature spawns, daily quests, and bonus honor rewards from PvP within Blackrock Mountain. Increase your reputation with the Thorium Brotherhood and earn access to valuable crafting materials and other rewards.

Raid Boss Schedule

World Bosses

Experience Lord Kazzak and Azuregos on July 18 at 1:00 p.m. PDT globally as brand-new instanced versions of these encounters. These encounters can be experienced with up to 40 players but will be tuned as 20-player content, making them both pick-up-group-friendly with 40 players, but also giving players the option to maximize their rewards by attempting them with 20-players.

Molten Core and Onyxia’s Lair Raid Dungeons

Prepare to take on Ragnaros and Onyxia in their lairs on July 25 at 1:00 p.m. PDT globally.

Experience Molten core as a 20-player dungeon with 10 classic bosses (+1,) revamped loot, redesigned Tier 1 sets, and more. Players will also be able to turn up the heat with a new variable difficulty mechanic allowing players to earn more rewards from undertaking a higher difficulty. Don’t forget your fire resist gear! You are going to need it. We’ll be adding one more surprise to this classic raid dungeon for intrepid adventurers to discover.

Onyxia will also be adjusted to accommodate 40 or fewer players along with some additional loot adjustments.

New Raid Lockout interval

Raid lockouts for all raids in Season of Discovery Phase 4 will now occur two times a week on static reset days. Players in North America will have their resets on Tuesdays and Saturdays, Europe on Wednesdays and Sundays, and players in Asia on Thursdays and Mondays.
