Delve into where nightmares dwell in Ny’alotha, the Waking City, set in the Void-shrouded heart of the ancient Black Empire. Confront mad heralds and inscrutable horrors, and ultimately go eye-to-eyes with N’Zoth himself in a fateful battle for Azeroth’s survival.

Ny’alotha, the sleeping city has awakened. For the first time in millennia, N’Zoth sits on his throne within the Black Empire. His armies flood from their dark halls, once again wreaking havoc on Azeroth. As the world shudders from these invasions, a desperate plan is hatched. Champions of the Horde and Alliance are gathered to face this ancient enemy within his own realm for one final confrontation that will decide the fate of the universe.

VISION OF DESTINY

Wrathion, the Black Emporer

Wrathion, the Black Emperor

Despite all his precautions, Wrathion could not avoid succumbing to the madness that claimed his father. With his mind twisted by N’Zoth, he believes that the only way he can truly defend Azeroth is to rule it in the Old God’s name. A prince no longer, Wrathion now takes his rightful place as the Black EMperor.

Maut

Maut

As the ancient aqir arose from the desert sands, their prophets set about the construction of an obsidian destroyer imbued with the essence of the Old Gods. Driven by an insatiable thirst for magic, Maut consumed the mana of its creators once it awoke and left their corpses to rot under the scorching sun of Uldum.

The Prophet Skitra

The Prophet Skitra
A master of illusion, Skitra delights in terrorizing his victims as he breaks their perception of reality. Those who fail to see through his deceptions become lost in Ny’alotha for eternity.

HALLS OF DEVOTION

Dark Inquisitor Xanesh

Dark Inquisitor Xanesh

Few can resist the whispers of the Old Gods, but those who do find themselves at the “mercy” of Dark Inquisitor Xanesh. A cruel and sadistic torturer, Xanesh prides herself on slowly carving the sanity away from those in her charge until all that remains is unwavering devotion to N’Zoth.

Vexiona

Vexiona

Obsessively wielding the power that N’Zoth has granted her, Vexiona has amassed a cult of worshippers who covet the gifts of the Void. From high atop her temple within the Black Empire, she transforms her most devout followers into unstoppable horrors.

The Hivemind

The Hivemind

Locked in a contest of wills, the generals Ka’zir and Tek’ris constantly vie for dominance over their fellow aqir. As they wrest control away from one another, the hive shifts its tactics and obeys each of their commands with fervent loyalty.

Ra-den the Despoiled

Ra-den the Despoiled

As he bravely fought to save the Chamber of Heart, Ra-den was pulled into Ny’alotha where he has fallen victim to N’Zoth’s whispers. The despair he harbored for so long has overwhelmed the last of his hope, rendering his corruption complete. Now the former Highkeeper will stop at nothing to do the Old God’s bidding.

GIFT OF FLESH

Shad'har the Insatiable

Shad’har the Insatiable

One of N’Zoth’s most nightmarish creations, Shad’har the Insatiable feasts on the corrupted carcasses that the Old God’s minions discard into its domain. Tormented by ceaseless hunger, Shad’har’s body twists and mutates with every corpse it devours.

Drest'agath

Drest’agath

The grotesque amalgam of flesh known as Drest’agath slumbered beneath Ny’alotha for millennia until being awakened by N’Zoth’s return. Now she rises like a revolting boil, ready to burst and spread her vile pestilence across Azeroth.

Il'gynoth, Corruption Reborn

Il’gynoth, Corruption Reborn

Following its defeat in the Emerald Nightmare, Il’gynoth retreated into the depths of Ny’alotha to regain its strength. Now it has fused with the city’s architecture and spreads across the Black Empire like a creeping infestation. As Il’gynoth’s corrupting flesh grows ever larger, so does its power.

THE WAKING DREAM

Carapace of N'Zoth

Carapace of N’Zoth
At the center of Ny’alotha stands a dread mountain of flesh, teeming with eyes and tendrils of unfettered corruption. Madness itself seeps from the writhing mass, eroding the sanity of all who approach it. This is the heart of the Black Empire, N’Zoth’s seat of power, the body of a god.

N'Zoth, the Corruptor

N’Zoth, the Corruptor

From his titanforged prison deep beneath the waves, N’Zoth spent eons subtly spreading his influence across Azeroth. Now free from captivity, the Corruptor reveals his true form as he enacts his ultimate plan to make his vision of the Black Empire our new reality. If he is not stopped, all we have ever known will be remade in the image of his eternal madness.

NEW PETS AND MOUNT

There are several new pets and a mount that drop from various bosses within Ny’alotha, the Waking city.

PetsMuar (Maut), Aqir Hivespawn (Tek’ris), Ra'kim (Tek’ris), and Void-Scarred Anubisath (Ra-den the Despoiled)

the twelve-boss raid opens one week after Patch 8.3 update goes live on January 21. Mythic Ny'alotha and Raid Finder WIng 1 will become available the week of January 28

I'm a bit confused. So the patch comes on 21st, the raid opens one week after, but then it says Mythic opens on the 28th, so normal and heroic open on the 21st???

Edit: Nvm, it was just awkwardly worded. Patch day is the 14th apparently.

Yeah, it was foreseen we'd have to fight Wrathion in the end. A shame, though.

No spoilers! Just wait for the raid to open and see for yourself 😛.

Like last Xpack with Ysera.

      A big batch has arrived today with fixes to the Auction House, Azerite Powers and Corruption effects, increases to rare spawns, a nerf to the Defragmentation Punchcard in PvP, Vulpera and Mechagnome issue fixes and the usual large amount of quest tweaks and fixes.
      January 17 (source)
      Achievements
      Fixed an issue where a dead player's Damage Over Time effect could cause the raid to fail The Best of Us . Auction House
      Bids now display properly in the sell tab for caged pets. Fixed a bug causing the quantity field to be empty when selling a non-commodity. The “Uncollected” filter now filters owned battle pets as expected. The “Upgrades Only” filter now correctly applies to wands and shields. The "Usable" filter now filters profession-restricted items and owned toys as intended. Purchasing an entire listing now displays the item count in the seller's auction list. Players can now buyout an auction for which they are already the high bidder. Fixed a bug that caused some mail from the Auction House to exclude expected attached gold. Creatures and NPCs
      The Gaze of N'Zoth can now only be faction tapped while in War Mode. Onyx Warserpent’s Lightning Pool no longer hits players harder than intended. Taijing the Cyclone now resets properly. The spawn frequency of several Rare enemies in Uldum and Vale of Eternal Blossoms Assault areas has been increased. Items
      Azerite Essences Fixed an issue that caused Breath of the Dying’s minor damage effect at Rank 1 or 2 to benefit from the Rank 3 increased proc chance against low health targets. Corruption Effects Fixed an issue preventing Twilight Devastation from triggering on ranged attacks. Infinite Stars damage reduced by 25% at all Corruption levels. Player versus Player
      The red punchcard Subroutine: Defragmentation now heals for 50% in PvP situations. Fixed an issue causing Breath of the Dying to have an incorrectly-lowered cooldown when used against player pets in PvP. Races

Players who are outside of the Vision while their party defeats Ysedra the Darkener now receive quest credit for “Deeper Into the Darkness ”.

Titan Artifacts should now appear for the quest “Unearthed Artifacts ” regardless of the completion status of the Assault bar-fill objective. Assault daily quests such as “The Sun King's Chosen ” or “The Strongest Among Them ” now require 3 Rare kills (was 4). Rare kills now provide more credit for Assaults. User Interface
      Guild and community setting dropdowns no longer appear when they are grayed out. Visions
      Players should now find their Sanity draining more quickly after an extended period within Vision of the Twisting Sands and Vale of Eternal Twilight. Fixed an issue that was preventing an iLvl 430 item from dropping when you had completed two objectives and the boss in a Horrific Vision. This item will be awarded to players on their next run if they satisfy these conditions.

      Blizzard have clarified what keystone you need to complete this week in order to get the +15 next week and the answer is a +19. The wording on the exact decrease in keys for Season 4 next week has been a little unclear, but it's now clarified that the decrease will in fact be 4.
      M+ Season 4 Decrease (source)
      If you want a +15 next week, you will want to do a +19 this week. Happy dungeon-ing this weekend all! ?

      Blizzard have posted some additional details on the rewards structure for Horrific Visions, from the relation of item level vs. how much you cleared and gathered inside each vision, the weekly tier rewards and the fact that the rewards in general are not RNG but dependent on the milestones you clear.
      You can read more on Horrific Visions in general in our in-depth guide here.
      Horrific Vision Rewards Clarifications (source)
      We’d like to clarify some details about rewards from Horrific Visions. Items are awarded from Horrific Visions at the following milestones:
      Objective Reward iLvl Vision Boss Only 420 Vision Boss + 2 Bonus Objectives 430 Full Clear No Masks 445 Full Clear + 1 Mask 450 Full Clear + 2 Masks 455 Full Clear + 3 Masks 460 Full Clear + 4 Masks 465 Full Clear + 5 Masks 470 Each week, you can obtain each tier of rewards once, with a 100% chance to obtain the best reward that the you were eligible for on any given Horrific Vision.
      For example, if on your first run of the week you clear 2 bonus objectives and defeat the Vision boss, you’ll get an iLvl 430 item. If you then repeat that run, you’ll get the iLvl 420 item that you were eligible for (because you’re no longer eligible for an iLvl 430 item until the weekly reset). If you then perform a full clear, you’ll get the iLvl 445 piece.
      Please note: the presence or absence of other players in Horrific Visions does not influence the chance for an item to be rewarded. All loot tracking is personal, and a character must be alive and sane at the start of an encounter in order to receive credit.

      We have an incoming hotfix for the Infinite Stars trait, with a significant nerf to its damage at all corruption levels, as well as some more issues with the revamped Auction House.
      Corruption Effect (source)
      We’re working on a hotfix that will adjust the Infinite Stars Corruption Effect:
      Items
      Corruption Effects
      Infinite Stars damage at all Corruption levels has been reduced by 25%. This hotfix should go live in the next few hours, and will appear in our next hotfixes update tomorrow.
       
      Auction House Issues (source)
      Here are some additional issues that we have identified and are actively investigating:
      When items are returned in the mail from the Auction House, it can incorrectly contain more stacks than the displayed maximum of 16. This makes it look like some items are not being delivered. You will know if you are experiencing this if a mail appears empty but can’t be deleted. To retrieve the missing items in this scenario, take out all 16 of the displayed stacks, then close and reopen the mailbox to see the rest (you may need to repeat this several times). If a character buys commodities in high quantities, they may not be able to access their mail. The favorites list is not saving properly. We have resolved some of the issues causing the “Internal Auction Error” to pop up, but it is still occurring and we are continuing to look into it.

      We'll once again have two competing Mythic raid race events in the new patch, as we've already heard about Method's, but now we also found out Limit (who were also recently added to the Complexity esports org) will be hosting their own!
      A raid ago, in the Eternal Paalce, we saw Red Bull going up against Method's event, with the two having split ways after previously working together on two events (Uldir and Dazar'alor), and Limit were among the guilds headlining the Red Bull event. With the larger org to back Limit up they've now decided to take Method's route and go it alone, with several guilds also joining them, namely Pieces, Big Dumb Guild, Fat Shark Yes, and Club Camel, with the live broadcast for the event held at Complexity’s GameStop Performance Center in Frisco, Texas. 
      The real winners here are the viewers following the race for World First, with the Eternal Palace having been an amazing experience with so many different perspectives to check out and some great commentators on both sides, driving viewership of the race through the roof (with over 200,000 concurrent twitch viewers at one point). It also seems the split in the events here is EU vs. US, which seems fitting as that's always been a division in the raid race - and a pretty intense one at that.
      When it comes to the race itself, this one's going to be pretty damn awesome, as Eternal Palace was one of the best races in WoW history, with Limit getting extremely close to toppling Method, after they basically threw away a win back in Uldir over one wrong non-resetting call. With 12 bosses the final raid/race of the expansion should last a bit longer than usual, which also makes the Asia server guilds a competitor, despite their 2 day-disadvantage over US and 1 over EU, so we might see an even crazyer race - and we get to watch it all live! As always we'll also be covering the race with daily summaries of the action, in case you prefer to catch up with the events instead of follow them live.
