Azshara's Eternal Palace will open on July 9th, two weeks after Patch 8.2 hits live servers. The eight-boss raid houses unique encounters including an underwater boss and a Naga hatchery!
Face Queen Azshara’s most devoted champions in an epic new raid—The Eternal Palace.
Ten thousand years ago, as the seas engulfed Zin-Azshari, Queen Azshara forged a dark bargain with N’Zoth that transformed her loyal subjects into the sinister naga. Through millennia of brutal conquest, Azshara has built a new empire from the ruins of the old and now holds dominion over the depths that once threatened to claim her. Ever the gracious host, she has invited the Alliance and Horde alike into her eternal palace to witness her glorious ascension… and their ultimate demise.

Difficulties: Raid Finder, Normal, Heroic, Mythic
Raid Finder Minimum Item Level: 380
RAID UNLOCK SCHEDULE:

ABYSSAL COMMANDER SIVARA
A master of both martial and magical arts, Abyssal Commander Sivara has ruthlessly led Azshara’s vanguard to countless victories. BLACKWATER BEHEMOTH
Summoned from depths unknown, the Blackwater Behemoth lurks in an abyss so dark that not even the naga dare to venture into it. Only Azshara is capable of taming the beast, and she has trained it to faithfully guard her treasures.
RADIANCE OF AZSHARA
Using her handmaiden as a willing sacrifice, Azshara has forged into being an elemental of storm and arcana. Powered by the soul of the devoted vassal, the resulting monstrosity is the avatar of Azshara’s radiance.
Priscilla Ashvane’s relentless pursuit of power has ultimately led her to the Eternal Palace and into a dark pact with Queen Azshara. But what Ashvane receives in return for her loyalty may be more than she bargained for.
Orgozoa tends to Azshara’s hatchery, preparing for the day her incubating horrors are unleashed upon Azeroth.
THE QUEEN’S COURT
For ten thousand years, the Queen’s Court has never failed to enforce the word of Azshara. Now, the queen’s most powerful servants stand ready to fulfill her final decree. ZA’QUL, HARBINGER OF NY’ALOTHA
The harbinger for the end of days, Za’qul shreds the last vestiges of sanity from a world in chaos, laying the foundations for Azeroth’s new master.
Queen of the Naga, Empress of Nazjatar, and one of the most powerful entities Azeroth has ever known, Azshara has plotted and schemed for millennia in preparation for this fateful moment. Now, with all the pieces in place, the time has finally come to reveal her endgame.

Patch 8.2 will go live next week on June 25th!
We have our 100 Mythic Crucible of Storms Horde champion guilds already! The Hall of Fame for the red faction is now closed with the guilds that managed to get in being set in stone, with a few more getting the Cutting Edge: Uu'nat, Harbinger of the Void achievement, as it remained available until the end of this last reset. So if you're looking for the achievement or the "Famed Slayer of the Harbinger" title, you'll have to try on the Alliance side of things, where there's 88 slots left! Once the remaining Alliance guilds down Mythic Uu'nat, cross-realm Mythic will be enabled, but at this rate it's going to be a bit tight to reach that 100 number, as the Hall of Fame will close when the next raid, Azshara's Eternal Palace, opens. Cross-realm Mythic will also be enabled at that time, even if there aren't 100 Alliance guilds done with Mythic Crucible at that point.
In any case, check out the full Horde Hall of Fame entry here.
We have some new info on the change to how grouped players with their XP off function in 8.2, a change which was implemented to curtail players leveling much faster with an XP off person (usually a Demon Hunter in Island Expeditions or Freehold) in the group.
Blizzard clarified that this change is only aimed at pre-made groups, aka groups where players have been invited directly, not via the matchmaker.
XP Boost (source)
I don’t want my XP to be 5% because some random troll que’d up on twink char and joined our group.
This won’t happen.
The change only affects groups that manually invite player characters who have XP off. There is no impact on players who find themselves automatically grouped by the matchmaker while doing PvP or Group Finder dungeons.
This change also doesn’t affect anyone who has turned off XP for their own benefit, such as plundering old raids while keeping their level low enough to use their Aggramar’s Stride boots.
Here's the aura in question:
With the 8.2: Rise of Azshara release date looming ever closer, it's time to take a closer look at one of the central new features of the patch, with the latest upgrade to our Heart of Azeroth. In this guide we take a look at what essences are, how to unlock them and what each of them does. Aside from taking a look at what each individual essence does, we also check out where to get them, from Island Expeditions, Nazjatar, the Mechagon dungeon, rated and world PvP, reputations, mythic+, the raid and more!
So if there's anything you wanted to know about the essence system, we have you covered, so just head on over to our guide and delve deep!
