- This article is about the raid. For pre-Sundering palace, see Azshara's Palace.
|The Eternal Palace|
The Eternal Palace is the royal seat of Queen Azshara and the Nazjatar Empire. It was built after the Sundering alongside the rest of Nazjatar. After opening the waters around the naga homeland, Azshara invited the Alliance and Horde forces wrecked there to her palace, where she tried to fulfill her mischievous plans.
In Rise of Azshara, the Eternal Palaces serves as a raid in the zone of Nazjatar, with Queen Azshara herself as the final boss. It is entered through the whirlpool in the Gate of the Queen, in which a water current will transport the player in-front of the raid entrance. To return, the Displacement Pedestal near the stairs is used to teleport you back to the Tidal Conflux.
Ten thousand years ago, as the seas engulfed Zin-Azshari, Queen Azshara forged a dark bargain with N'Zoth that transformed her loyal subjects into the sinister naga. Through millennia of brutal conquest, Azshara has built a new empire from the ruins of the old and now holds dominion over the depths that once threatened to claim her. Ever the gracious host, she has invited the Alliance and Horde alike into her eternal palace to witness her glorious ascension... and their ultimate demise.
Maps and subregions
- The Grand Reception
The dangers of Nazjatar were merely preamble. Breach the palace gates and descend into Azshara's deadly domain.
- Abyssal Commander Sivara - A master of both martial and magical arts, Abyssal Commander Sivara has ruthlessly led Azshara's vanguard to countless victories.
- Blackwater Behemoth - Summoned from depths unknown, the Blackwater Behemoth lurks in an abyss so dark that not even the naga dare to venture into it. Only Azshara is capable of taming the beast, and she has trained it to faithfully guard her treasures.
- Radiance of Azshara - Using her handmaiden as a willing sacrifice, Azshara has forged into being an elemental of storm and arcana. Powered by the soul of the devoted vassal, the resulting monstrosity is the avatar of Azshara's radiance.
- Depths of the Devoted
Azshara's most valued retainers are as deadly as they are loyal. To face the queen, one must first face her court.
- Lady Ashvane - Priscilla Ashvane's relentless pursuit of power has ultimately led her to the Eternal Palace and into a dark pact with Queen Azshara. But what Ashvane receives in return for her loyalty may be more than she bargained for.
- Orgozoa - Orgozoa tends to Azshara's hatchery, preparing for the day her incubating horrors are unleashed upon Azeroth.
- The Queen's Court - For ten thousand years, the Queen's Court has never failed to enforce the word of Azshara. Now, the queen's most powerful servants stand ready to fulfill her final decree.
- The Circle of Stars
Every path has led to her... to him. Prove worthy of the waking dream. Drown! Drown, and let all eyes be opened!
- Za'qul, Harbinger of Ny'alotha - The harbinger for the end of days, Za'qul shreds the last vestiges of sanity from a world in chaos, laying the foundation for Azeroth's new master.
- Queen Azshara - Queen of the Naga, Empress of Nazjatar, and one of the most powerful entities Azeroth has ever known, Azshara has plotted and schemed for millennia in preparation for this fateful moment. Now, with all the pieces in place, the time has finally come to reveal her end game.
