Get a first look at patch 7.3’s Seat of the Triumvirate dungeon

If you haven’t been keeping score, Seat of the Triumvirate is a brand new dungeon in patch 7.3. Though the patch will go live on Tuesday, the content is staggered and the dungeon will officially open up two weeks later alongside the Netherlight Crucible relic system. Seat of the Triumvirate will be available in both Heroic and Mythic difficulties and will drop the higher item level gear.

Once, this was the center of power on Argus — the seat from which Velen, Kil’jaeden, and Archimonde ruled — but it’s now a very different place. The halls are now filled with void creatures and we see the sad fate of the Naaru L’ura who was locked away after helping Velen and the Draenei escape Argus.

In this dungeon, the developers wanted to explore the “tragic history” of Mac’Aree while also giving us something visually different from the fel green that’s pervaded the expansion. Like the Sunwell, the dynamic between the Light and Shadow, especially for the cycles of the Naaru, straddles a fine line. A certain someone also dabbles with this line as well. After all, power is a weapon and we must utilize everything at our disposal to defeat the Legion.

The dungeon also gives players a chance to learn more about Alleria Windrunner, and to witness her learning more about herself…

{PB}There are four bosses in the dungeon: three Legion foes and the fallen L’ura. The first boss we encounter is Zuraal the Ascended, the first Broken to be infused with the Void power…while staying sane. Saprish, the next boss, is an ethereal who commands battle with precision and aims to outsmart any enemies who come his way. The third boss is another ethereal, Viceroy Nezhar, who was drawn to the Void power inside the dungeon and is obsessed with using it to further his own ambitions. Lastly we have L’ura, who sacrificed herself to give the Draenei hope. She stayed behind on Argus, stalling the Legion in order to buy time for Velen and his people to escape. Kil’jaeden obviously was not happy with this and locked her up in the former seat of his power. She has since fallen to the Void, waiting for us to relieve her of her despair.
