Sepulcher of the First Ones Raid Environment Preview

Recommended Posts

The first raid testing of Sepulcher of the First Ones concluded yesterday, so we took some screenshots of the two boss areas that we'd like to show you.

The first boss available for testing was Dausegne. Here's the path leading to the boss.

You can jump down the platform and swim in the water.

If you follow the path, you'll come across multiple sets of adds.

Finally, we reach the boss room and have a more detailed look at the environment.

The second boss available for playtesting was Skolex. The boss room reminded us of Ahn'Qiraj.

Here is Skolex in its full glory!

We'll continue with the raid environment preview when more bosses become available for testing.

      As expected, there's been a lot more action on the meme side of things in the great MS +ABK story, and we're here to cover them! While the themes and ideas are pretty much the same as in the first batch, a lot of the new ones are much more refined and very well done, with a couple of desktop background-worthy entries!
      We're starting with the main feature here, and you'll probably want this one on your desktop ASAP, as TehWurrior nailed it, and also came up with the best new term coming out of the acquisition: "Woondows".
      Champyen! I sense a Windows Update waitin' for ye!

      Source: TehWurrior.
      Sticking with the desktop wallpaper theme, the next one is a bit more subtle, but it's basically the same:

      Next up we have a direct live feed from how the deal actually went down:
      Last time I skipped all the Clippy ones as they were pretty same-y, but this one actually looks good!
      Clippy Mount as reward for your new Office 365 - 6 Month subscription!

      Source: DizzyDox.
      We also have a role-reversal, as Clippy moves into WoW, he may lose his original job:

      Source: vO_Oz.
      It seems we're not quite done with Covenants, even in 10.0:

      Moving on to the Halo stuff, an old WoW classic has been updated:

      Source: ickyzombie.
      Then there's some serious lore implications on the crossover ideas, with this one possibly being the greatest reveal in gaming:

      Source: NOHITJEROME.
      Speaking of crossovers, there's more ideas for WoW in Halo, that Halo players might not be too happy about:

      Source: ExcellentTurnover780.
      Sticking with Halo, we have less of a meme and more of just really awesome art and something Master Chief would totally do:
      "I need a weapon"

      Source: ThousandWinds.
      The "new additions to WoW shop" theme continued as well, with a brand new 6-moth sub mount!

      Source: AwaxED.
       
      And the crossover ideas didn't end with just Halo:

      Source: Upbeat_Ad2051.
      Not all the images are flashy, however, as some players expect more subtle changes to come:
      What my dumb caveman brain thinks the Microsoft takeover will mean for WoW

      Source: Ultiverse.
      And then there's the just flat out silly ones:
      Gates at the Gate of Gates.

      Source: SubjectDelta10.
      And finally, one that probably conveys how a lot of players felt regarding the acquisition (although considering how it all ends for Theoden, perhaps not the best of outcomes):

      Update: here's the official PTR info on the affix:
      S3 Mythic+ Affix (Source)
      Mythic+ Affixes New Seasonal Affix: Encrypted – Enemies throughout the dungeon possess relics of the First Ones. Destroy the relics to summon the First Ones’ Automa and gain powerful bonuses, based on the order in which they were destroyed. ___________________________________________________
      The new season 3 affix has been added to the PTR and datamined already, and it has a very interesting/weird name.
      The affix is named "Encrypted", and it's actually possible that is its real name and not just a placeholder, considering the theme of Zereth Mortis and the First Ones "programming" the afterlives. Initially spotted by BlaringMailer, we poked MrGM to check it out for us as well and he obliged:


      It's sounding similar to the current Tormented affix, but a little more interesting, mixing in an element of the 8.0 Infested affix, since it looks like it will be either hidden in specific trash packs or randomized among them, so there might be some interesting playmaking to be had with trash clears and routes!

      The Ahead of the Curve mount that drops from the Jailer has also been revealed in this week's Patch 9.2 build.
      Blizzard added two items that reveal the Ahead of the Curve mount for Eternity's End.
      Carcinized Protoform - This item starts a quest and likely drops from the Jailer on Heroic difficulty and up. It grants you a quest which rewards a mount. Fractal Cypher of the Carcinized Zerethsteed - The actual mount that you'll get when you defeat the Jailer on Heroic difficulty (Ahead of the Curve: The Jailer). The few of these mysterious creatures that remain appear to be impossibly old, almost timeless. Perhaps they were created by the First Ones, because no schematic to synthesize these has yet been discovered.

      Blizzard added four encrypted cinematics to the game in this week's 9.2 build. 
      All four cinematics are unfortunately encrypted, so we can't watch them yet. The only information available at this time is their file data ID and size.
      Number File Data ID  Size 1 4279692 78 MB 2 4279697 39 MB 3 4279702 12 MB 4 4279707 25 MB I think the shortest one (12MB) will be used for a transition phase, maybe even during the Jailer fight. The longest one (78 MB) will be playing after we defeat the Jailer. That leaves us with two more cinematics. One of them will most likely play during the Week 1 Sepulcher raid finale after we defeat Anduin. The final one, I don't know.

      Anduin Wrynn received a new in-game cinematic model in this week's update on the 9.2 PTR. This post contains spoilers.
      It's clear that the new model was created for cinematic purposes. I think it will be used when we save him during Week 1 of the Sepulcher raid story. Anduin looks super sad there, though. Maybe he liked working for the Jailer after all.
