The Nighthold
Concept art of the Nighthold

The Nighthold stands as a testament to the achievements of the nightborne civilization. It is the largest structure in the Broken Isles, and among the grandest in all of Azeroth. Centered around the Nightwell, the fount of arcane power that has sustained Suramar for centuries, these grounds were built as a haven from the worries of the world.[1] This is the palace from which Grand Magistrix Elisande runs the city of Suramar. She has brokered a deal with the Burning Legion to allow them to use a portion of the Nightwell energy.[2]

The entrance can be found in the Sanctum Depths of the Sanctum of Order. The instance opened January 17, 2017, with Mythic and LFR modes a week later.[3]

Background

Essence of titanic power now dwells within the inhabitants of the Nighthold after centuries in close proximity with the Eye of Aman'thul.[4]

Dungeon Journal

The largest structure in the Broken Isles and among the grandest in all of Azeroth, the Nighthold stands as a testament to the achievements of the nightborne civilization. Centered around the Nightwell, the fount of arcane energy that has sustained Suramar for centuries, these grounds were built as a haven from the worries of the world. But as a felstorm churns above the former temple of Elune across the bay, and Gul'dan himself now resides within the palace's walls, those worries now begin-not end-here.

Notes

  • This location was called Suramar Palace in the original announcement.
  • With the Nighthold, the designers wanted to offer a raid environment that was both beautiful and deadly, in contrast to the darkness and oppressiveness of the other raids.[1]
