The Nighthold raid preview and schedule now available

If you’ve been waiting patiently and running Emerald Nightmare/Trial of Valor, now you can finally sink your teeth into the raid that continues Legion’s main storyline, as The Nighthold is coming soon. How soon? Soon enough that we’re getting this preview from the fine folks at Blizzard. In fact, here’s the schedule for US realms (EU realms are one day behind):

  • Tuesday, January 17: Nighthold Normal and Heroic difficulties open.
  • Tuesday, January 24: Nighthold Mythic difficulty and Raid Finder Wing 1 (Arcing Aqueducts) open.
  • Tuesday, February 7: Nighthold Raid Finder Wing 2 (Royal Athenaeum) opens.
  • Tuesday, February 21: Nighthold Raid Finder Wing 3 (Nightspire) opens.
  • Tuesday, March 7: Nighthold Raid Finder Wing 4 (Betrayer’s Rise) opens.

As you can see, the Raid Finder release for the Nighthold is fairly staggered, with about two weeks between each release for LFR. Mythic comes out the usual week after Normal/Heroic, so no surprises there — but I’ll admit that I was expected a faster rollout for LFR Nighthold.

The preview explores the design of several fights in the Nighthold — I especially look forward to getting a shot at killing the Chronomatic Anomaly, Krosus and Tichondrius himself.  For a closer look at the designs and more information, head to the official site.
