Two Tomb of Sargeras bosses will be tested tomorrow on test realms. Demonic Inquisition and Mistress Sassz'ine will be enabled for testing on Heroic difficulty. Ion said that after Friday's testing is over, they plan to open Tomb of Sargeras on Normal difficulty over the weekend with Goroth, Demonic Inquisition, Harjatan and Mistress Sassz'ine.

This is the second testing of ToS bosses. Note that Tomb of Sargeras won't be going live immediately with the release of 7.2. The raid will come at a later date, similar to Nighthold.

On Friday, February 17, we will be conducting a raid test of two more Tomb of Sargeras Heroic bosses.

Remember that Heroic difficulty scales for any group size between 10 and 30 players, so feel free to assemble and bring a group of any size within that range. 

Friday, February 17

Demonic Inquisition - Heroic Tomb of Sargeras
13:00 PST (16:00 EST, 22:00 CET)

Mistress Sassz'ine - Heroic Tomb of Sargeras
14:00 PST (17:00 EST, 23:00 CET)

After testing concludes on Friday, we plan to open Normal Tomb of Sargeras over the weekend, with Goroth, Demonic Inquisition, Harjatan, and Mistress Sassz'ine available.

As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a PTR environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.

Q: How do I get into the raid zone?

A: In Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade Sr. in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)

Q: What character should I use to test the raid?

A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players' effective level to 110 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested. For 7.2 raid testing, we'll be granting players all the new 7.2 artifact traits IFplayers have done the quest to reveal those new traits. Complete the Broken Shore intro experience in order to access this quest.

Q: How long does testing last?

A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we're satisfied that we've received that information for a given boss, we'll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a growing raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of four within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.

      We care more about the people we play with than their item levels or progression rankings. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      We are 5/11-Heroic 11/11-Normal Antorus, having killed every boss we've pulled.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid.
      We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for raiding the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      DPS: YES. We badly need RANGED DPS, but exceptional melee will be considered, particularly mail.
      Healers: MAYBE. We'd like a restoration/balance druid who can dps as well as they can heal and are okay being expected to play either role.
      Tank: NO. No current needs.

      The Nitty Gritty
      If you're intrigued, please check out our wiki on the <Karma Horde> subreddit. This will give you the inside picture on how we operate as a raid team.

      Our Patch 7.3.5 zone preview continues with Fate's Veil, Forge of Aeons, and more.
      Patch 7.3.5 adds several new zones to the game and it looks like they might be used for scenarios.
      Fate's Veil (Void Elves Unlock Scenario)
      The zone is very similar to the the in Locus-Walker & Alleria quest chain in Mac'Aree, possibly related to Void Elves. It has a cool skybox with Old God infested planets.

      Forge of Aeons (Lightforged Draenei Unlock Scenario)

      The Sunwell

      Uuna Scenario
      A new zone called "A Dark Place" was added in Patch 7.3.5. It's referred to as "Uuna Scenario" in the game files. Not much information is available at this time, but you probably came across Uuna on Argus. Uuna's Doll drops from an ur'zul elite (The Many-Faced Devourer). It's most likely going to be some sort of solo content, where players help Uuna.

      New scarab mounts related to the Call of the Scarab micro-holiday have been added to the game in Patch 7.3.5.
      We found four new models in the game files so far as of 7.3.5 Build 25632. They all share the same flavor text and will only be available during the Call of the Scarab micro-holiday.
      "The Qiraji War Tank has only been seen recently during the Call of the Scarab, could this hint at a resurfacing of the deadly creatures?"
