As with raids in Mists of Pandaria, we're staggering the unlock of difficulties for the first raid in the expansion. As with those prior staggered unlocks, our goal here is to let you have fun playing, leveling, and to have time to explore and prepare yourself and your raid group before jumping into this first raid. We'll share information on the unlock schedule for Blackrock Foundry in the future, but are currently expecting it to unlock approximately 8 weeks after Highmaul.

December 2, 2014
  • Highmaul opens with Normal and Heroic difficulties accessible.
  • Drov the Ruiner and Tarlna the Ageless begin spawning in Gorgrond.

December 9, 2014
  • Mythic difficulty unlocks.
  • Raid Finder Wing 1 (Kargath/Butcher/Brackenspore) unlocks. Requires item level 615+.

December 16, 2014
  • Raid Finder Wing 2 (Tectus/Twin Ogron/Ko’ragh) unlocks. Requires item level 615+.

January 6, 2015
  • Raid Finder Wing 3 (Imperator Mar’gok) unlocks. Requires item level 615+.

So i don't even have to worry about gearing for LFR until the 9th eh?


oddly freeing really lol.

I'll still be pushing so i can get into molten core for the anniversary (which i noticed lasts a couple months on the calender, thanks :)) but at least this means i might be able to get a couple alts to 100 and do some good ol' fashioned achievement hunting before the gear grind starts up again :P

Yup! :D
