wow Legion Alpha: New Dungeon Released!

Over on the Alpha, a brand new dungeon is now allowing players to queue into it. Enter Black Rook Hold and battle your way through the ancient haunted catacombs until you reach the top!

 

On the Western coast of Val'Sharah lies the ancestral home of the great Lord Ravencrest. For those of you who do not know, Lord Kur'talos Ravencrest was the commander of the Kaldorei resistance against the Burning Legion invasion. It was a treacherous time for the Kaldorei and they trusted nobody but themselves. In the altered timeline of the War of the Ancients, Ravencrest refuses to ask for the aid of other races since he fears his own Kaldorei fighters will defect. There was a huge feeling of xenophobia amongst the Kaldorei and Ravencrest valued his own kind over the aid of other races. He was simply taking the political route of war, attempting to appease everyone.

He eventually perishes by the hand of a servant to Aszhara, who acted as a soldier before slaying the commander in the heat of battle. Upon his death, a noble by the name of Desdel Stareye took up the mantle of leadership, but he was an incompetent leader with no experience in battle. The story then goes on to continue as we know it in lore today.

 

The dungeon is the home of this noble commander, Black Rook Hold. Carved from the mountain itself, the exterior is said to look similar to a chess piece, the rook. The hold came to be known as the Black Rook Hold due to the shape, as well as the ancient crest of a black raven above the hold. Said to be able to withstand an attack from the Legion for days on end, the building is second only to the palace of Zin'Ashari. Initially thought to have been destroyed in the Sundering, the hold is still present and as imposing as ever before.

 

The corruption of the Burning Legion runs deep within this place; fight to free Lord Ravencrest and his men from the grasp of the demon lord, Dantalionax.

If you're one of the lucky few to be in the Alpha, make sure you are prepared to crash quite a lot. It seems those that are running this dungeon are finding critical errors a lot more often than normal. Albeit, this is expected during the early Alpha.

 

For those of you that are not part of the Alpha, make sure you check out this video of the dungeon being cleared by Reddit user y0mirs. A warning for viewers, there is some strong language throughout the video, as well as some interesting elevator music. Enjoy!

      Signups are open for Cup #3 and we’re waiting for YOU to become the next WoW Arena champions. The final 8 teams will be broadcast live on Twitch, on Saturday June 10th at 11:00am PDT, so whether you’re competing, curious or just plain old crazy about esports—you can find out how to get involved below. See you on June 10th!
      ALL ABOUT TOURNAMENTS
      The events are 3v3 Arena Tournaments on live realms. There is a double-elimination bracket, so watch out! Team rosters are 4-player, but you can sign-up with 3. All series are best-of-5. Tournament Mode is required; all gear is normalized and honor talents and artifact power are maximized ALL ABOUT PRIZE POOLS
      1st place: $3,000, 160 points 2nd place: $1,500, 80 points 3rd place: $1,000, 36 points 4th place: $500, 20 points 5th and 6th places: 12 points each ALL ABOUT ROSTERS
      Didn’t finish in the top 6 in the first tournament? Not a problem! Teams can change their team members as often as they want, until points are earned. Once you have points on the board, your teams are set in stone. Well, except. . . Teams who earn points are allotted one roster swap without consequences. After the free swap, there is an automatic 50% reduction to your points tally. If you want to know more, read our official Championship rules below. SIGNUPS FOR NA CUP #3 ARE LIVE!
      Signups are live! Signups will be open until 9:00am PDT on Monday, June 5th. Teams will be seeded by the rating they achieve as signups close. Bracket play starts on the 7th, and plays through the 8th May (if a second day is needed). The last 8 teams will be broadcast live on Twitch on Saturday, June 10th starting at 11:00am PDT. We’re excited to partner-up with GCDTV, who will be helping us out with all that has to happen behind the scenes (which is a lot). The full rules and regs—plus the essential player handbook—can be found here. Dates and signups for future cups will be coming soon! CUP DATES FOR YOUR DIARY
      Cup #4: Final 8 broadcast Saturday, July 29th Cup #5: Final 8 broadcast Saturday, August 5th WANT TO RUN YOUR OWN TOURNAMENT?
      We would love to see more of these! The more community involvement the better and there are some seriously solid reasons for doing it. Community-run tournaments directly impact which teams end up in the Arena World Championships, as all approved community-run events award points. If you’re interested, here’s what you should do: read the guide, fill out the application form and send in it to us. If you have any questions about running your own event, get in touch. We’re here to help and want you to create as many community events as it’s possible to have.

      Some big news in today's hotfixes as the Artifact Knowledge cap gets reduced by 10 down to 40 and we get some dev insight into why they reduced it. We also see some Monk Stagger fixes and PvP Paladin Judge Unworthy changes, as well as the previously tweeted 15 minute limit to Deepwind Dunk.
      Blizzard (source)
      Achievements
      “Grand Opening” now requires 8 spotlights activated during the Chronomatic Anomaly encounter (was 12). Classes
      Monk Ironskin Brew and Fortifying Brew once again grant the correct Stagger percentage. Class Hall
      Artifact Knowledge can now be researched to a maximum level of 40 (was 50). Developers’ Notes: We raised the Knowledge cap from 40 to 50 very late in the 7.2 PTR cycle, out of an abundance of caution: We wanted to ensure that players of all playstyles, as well as alt characters, would view the Concordance trait as accessible. However, between the additional Artifact Power gains added in 7.2 and others that were hotfixed in after the patch released, we’re now well ahead of that mark. Knowledge 40 now seems more than sufficient for players to reach Concordance, and the prospect of months’ worth of additional Knowledge still left to research makes some players feel like their efforts in the interim aren’t meaningful. Therefore, we’re rolling the cap back to 40. Player versus Player
      Deepwind Dunk is now 15 minutes long, and each player killed during Deepwind Dunk awards 5 points. Paladin Attacking a Judged target will now cause Judge Unworthy to only spread that target's Judgment, instead of all your nearby Judgments. Judge Unworthycan now spread Judgment to targets that are under the effects of crowd-control abilities. Damage from Lawbringer can no longer cause Judge Unworthy to spread Judgment. UI
      Players using Korean and Chinese clients can now chat in public chat channels on the Broken Shore. Previous hotfixes (May 15th).
