New Raid Coming In Rise of Azshara
Fight for Your World

Gather your allies and descend into brand-new raids. Face gargantuan bosses in the sprawling titan facility Uldir, experience the Battle of Dazar'alor as war reaches the shores of Zuldazar, or assault the Crucible of Storms, where fanatical cultists prepare dark rituals in the name of their eldritch masters. In Rise of Azshara, storm the Eternal Palace, seat of power of Queen Azshara herself, and stop abominations from the depths before they take over the surface world.

Plunder Uncharted Islands

Set sail for the previously unmapped isles of Azeroth. Battle in groups of three as you race against cunning rival intruders—or enemy players—to collect the island’s resources. Constantly evolving challenges await as you traverse frozen landscapes near Northrend, open the gates of an abandoned Gilnean castle, navigate a war between elementals and more. Rise of Azshara adds two new Island Expeditions to the mix—Crestfall, a gloomy, derelict skerry, and Snowblossom, an idyllic, mountainous island.

Storm the Warfronts

Head to the frontlines and take part in a large-scale 20-player cooperative Warfront to claim key strategic locations. You'll build up your faction's forces, lead the charge as your troops lay siege to the objective, and battle the enemy commanders as they make their last stand in this new PvE mode inspired by classic Warcraft RTS battles.

Engage in the Battle for Stromgarde—where Orcs and Humans fight for dominance of the Arathi Highlands—and earn powerful rewards as you conquer Normal mode or the all-new Heroic mode. Then, continue to dominate the battlefield in the Battle for Darkshore, where Forsaken and the Night elves struggle for control of a staging area near Teldrassil.

Assault Enemy Lands
The Horde and Alliance established footholds in Kul Tiras and Zandalar, seeking to use these staging points to launch large-scale assaults deep into enemy territory. These assaults cycle regularly between Kul Tiras and Zandalar, giving you an opportunity to help your faction attack or defend a zone. While the assaulting faction tries to break through their enemy’s defenses, defenders must rally the local forces to drive the invaders away.
