New Content in Phase 3 of TBC
- Tier 6 Raids: Black Temple and Hyjal Summit, along with their own unique reputations.
- Arena Season 3.
- Epic gems, such as the Delicate Crimson Spinel.
- Netherwing daily quests, and the Nether Drake mounts that come with being Exalted with the Netherwing reputation in Shadowmoon Valley.
Tier 6 Raids
The biggest addition in Phase 3 of TBC will be the tier 6 raids, Black Temple and Hyjal Summit. These are both iconic raids in the TBC expansion, in part because of the addition of the coveted Warglaive of Azzinoth/ Warglaive of Azzinoth that drop from Illidan Stormrage. Below are links to our guides for these new raids along with their attunements.
We have also created a separate guide dedicated to maximizing your Shadow Resistance for some of these raids' encounters, along with guides to help out in determining loot priority.
