|Patches • Patches category|
The patch was deployed on the Public Test Realm on October 7, 2019.
The Old God N'Zoth has risen from the depths to threaten Azeroth. Working alongside Magni, Wrathion, and other luminaries, players will attempt to empower Azeroth with defenses originally built by the titans. In return, the Old God attempts to corrupt the very minds of the player-characters with Visions of N'Zoth, a new, repeatable type of content where players explore a twisted reflection of a defeated future Azeroth.
This major update includes a number of new features, changes to existing systems, and other improvements that you can join us in testing.
Now Available for Testing
- New world and questing content
- New instanced content: Visions of N'Zoth
