Battle of Dazar'alor,[1][2] (also referred to as Siege of Zuldazar,[3] Battle of Zuldazar[4] and Assault on Zuldazar)[5] is a raid in Battle for Azeroth, introduced in Patch 8.1.0: Tides of Vengeance. The Alliance assaults Dazar'alor, while the Horde defends it. There are faction specific raid entrances located in Zanchul and Boralus Harbor.

Alliance start at the docks and climb the pyramid, eventually fighting King Rastakhan. The Horde will defend the city, starting outside on the far north of the pyramid. They fight towards Rastakhan, which will be the middle of the raid for them. They then fight Alliance forces down towards harbor, ending with Alliance commanders and Lady Jaina Proudmoore on the high seas. During the raid you speak to an NPC to play from the other faction's perspective in the middle or final act.

Which race of the opposite faction the player becomes in the flashback is the same as in Mercenary Mode.[6]

Adventure Guide

For ages untold, Dazar'alor has stood at the center of the great and powerful Zandalari empire. Its guards have thwarted numerous attempts on King Rastakhan's life, and it has endured trials both ancient and new. But as war reaches the shores of Zuldazar, the Alliance embarks on a daring gambit to besiege the golden pyramid and sever the Zandalari's bond to the Horde.[7]

Notes

  • This raid is unique in that it presents a completely different experience for each faction.
  • The raid was originally hinted at through datamining the map called 8.1 - ZuldazarRaid.
    • Its placeholder name as seen on the 8.1 PTR dungeon journal was 8.1 Raid. The zone itself was called The Siege of Zuldazar, which was the name it was first announced with in a developer liveblog. In a later PTR build, the zone was changed to The Burning of Zuldazar.[8] In a following developer Q&A, they stated that they may call it Battle of Dazar'alor,[2] which became the final name of the raid.
  • Horde players encounter Otoye in the Heart of the Empire to play from the Alliance perspective for the middle 3 bosses.
  • Alliance players speak to Tandred Proudmoore to play from the Horde perspective for the last 3 bosses.
