Azshara’s Eternal Palace
The sea has opened and the way forward to Nazjatar is clear -- the Rise of Azshara begins on June 25!
We've seen all sorts of gear catch up mechanics in the past, often tokens that are put in place to help people newly returned to the game be competitive in the latest content, without having to spend weeks grinding out the last raid tier.
Update: Patch 8.2 now has an official release date!
We're getting two new playable world zones, a megadungeon, and a raid in patch 8.2 that will continue the story of Battle for Azeroth.
