July in Azeroth starts off with bursts of flying color throughout the capital cities as the Midsummer Fire Festival comes to a close. While the holiday may be ending, the work within the Tomb of Sargeras continues this month as raiders continue to plumb its danger-filled depths. But, don’t worry. It won’t all be serious business when the main auction houses in Orgrimmar and Stormwind set up Azeroth’s biggest dance parties. 

In-Game Events

This Month: Fashion Is Key in the Tomb of Sargeras

With more raiders heading deeper into the Tomb of Sargeras this month, we thought we’d cast our eye on the new high-quality armor sets you can earn. From Raid Finder to Mythic, you can look your very best while slaying the forces of the Burning Legion with these prêt-à-porter sets. We’ve gone into the dressing room and pulled out one iconic set from each armor class to show you the possibilities.

Tomb of Sargeras Raid Set
Tomb of Sargeras [Tier 20]: Paladin- Radiant Lightbringer Armor, Shaman- Regalia of the Skybreaker, Priest- Vestments of Blind Absolution, Druid- Stormheart Raiment

If you’re not quite ready to head into the Tomb, but still want this incredibly stylish look—while staying within budget—then you’re in luck! This month provides a great opportunity to collect the original set that inspired it all from the dark halls of the Black Temple*. Collect any set and you’ll earn the Black is the New Black Achievement. A little less bling than what you'll find in the Tomb, but you'll still look great everywhere you go. 

Black Temple-Tier 6
Black Temple [Tier 6]: Paladin- Lightbringer Battlegear, Shaman- Skyshatter Regalia, Priest- Absolution Regalia, Druid- Thunderheart Raiment

*Not all items of the 5-piece set found within the Black Temple (3 of 5). A trip to Hyjal Summit highly recommended (2 of 5) to complete your look. Ask for Tydormu for more shopping options. Dry clean only. Light iron. No Starch. All sales (mostly) final.

      Il'gynoth returns as a boss in Ny'alotha, the Patch 8.3 raid, and with it comes another round of whispers full of prophecies. What do they entail? This article contains spoilers.
      We fought Il'gynoth back in the Emeral Nightmare and if you played in Legion, chances are you know that his prophecies have manifested themselves later on in Battle for Azeroth. He gave us hints on how Magni would become a pawn, which happened in Rise of Azshara, and much more. Now, he's back in Ny'alotha and his Voice Overs are full of riddles.
      Il'gynoth VO
      We've analyzed all whispers below.
      This refers to Mueh'zala who is also referred to as the Father of Sleep based on WoWWiki. Mueh'zala is the loa of death worshipped by the Sandury Tribe, and likely, Bwonsamdi's boss, whose identity has not been unveiled yet.
      The "Golden One" is Calia Menethil. Although the game did not contain information on how Sylvanas killed her and Calia got raised, 8.3 sound files hint at Calia becoming the new leader of the Forsaken and her plans to reclaim Lordaeron.
      Il'gynoth claims Calia will bring only darkness. This may refer to the events of Patch 9.0 and beyond. Remember, that we faced Il'gynoth as a boss at the beginning of Legion and his prophecies came true just recently in Patch 8.2 Rise of Azshara.
      The Val'kyr have some sort of pact with Sylvanas and it appears they are eager to fulfill her every wish. What that entails remains to be seen.
      "The Vessel of Life" probably refers to the Green Dragonflight. It foreshadows a traitor amidst their ranks. Merithra, the Daughter of Ysera, has seen some screen time in Battle for Azeroth and what the future brings is uncertain as for now.
      The Dragon Aspects have lost their powers after defeating Deathwing and in Battle for Azeroth, they're back helping us against N'Zoth. 
      Patch 8.3 Voice Overs suggest that Sylvanas, who's now wielding Xal'atath, wants to use it against N'Zoth to defeat him. Her deal with Queen Azshara was to bring the champions of the Alliance and the Horde to Nazjatar, and in Visions of N'Zoth, Azshara provides us with valuable information on how to defeat the God of the Deep.
      In World of Warcraft there are six planes (realms of existence). We are the "cunning ones" and it seems we only serve one master, which is death.

      Next, we're checking out the sound files for Queen Azshara and Sylvanas. They both had a bargain and in Patch 8.3, Azshara has the key to defeating N'Zoth. Spoiler alert!
      Earlier today, we looked at sound files of multiple characters, containing spoilers on the future of the Forsaken and their leadership.
      The sound files for Queen Azshara hint at the bargain she had with Sylvanas. Azshara would make both fleets crash to the ocean floor (Nazjatar) in exchange for Xal'atath. We know how that ended when Sylvanas claimed the blade for herself...
      In Patch 8.3, Queen Azshara is tortured by Xanesh in Ny'alotha, the Waking City raid. We defeat the boss, and ultimately, she sides with us and reveals the key to defeating N'Zoth. We learn  that he is the weakest of his kin and the blade can be used to defeat him once and for all, which is how the raid is going to end.

      Our preview of mounts added in World of Warcraft's forthcoming content update continues with the Aqir flying mount.
      Who are the Aqir?
      Aqir Flying Mount
      The source of the mount remains unknown for now. Do you think it will be drop from N'Zoth on Mythic Difficulty?

      After the events of Patch 8.2.5, the Forsaken are looking for a new leader in Visions of N'Zoth. This article contains spoilers.
      In order to learn more about the future of the Forsaken, we've uploaded new VOs to our YouTube channel. Key characters include Jaina Proudmoore, Calia Menethil, Lilian Voss, and Derek Proudmoore.
      Apparently, there will be a meeting in Patch 8.3 between Jaina, Derek, Calia, and Voss. Calia tells Jaina that she decided to leave Kul Tiras for Lordaeron, because Voss asked her for help now that the Forsaken have no leader. Derek wants to join Calia as both have been raised from the dead and have something in common.

      We've analyzed Il'gynoth's new whispers and one seems to have been tailored specifically for Calia Menethil.
      An article with a full analysis will be posted later today. In the meantime, you can check out Il'gynoth's VO below.

      100 Alliance guilds have finally defeated Mythic Queen Azshara and filled The Eternal Palace Mythic Hall of Fame, which means Mythic cross-realm raiding will become available for the raid next week after maintenance.
      Congratulations to Proud Manlets of Kel'Thuzad (US). They're the 100th guild to defeat Mythic Queen Azshara!

      On the opposite side of the spectrum, Horde guilds have filled the Hall of Fame on September 5.
