Hello citizens of Dalaran,
We are really glad to announce the release of Onyxia’s Lair, which will happen on Friday, May 13th at 17:00 Server Time.
The dreaded brood mother of the black dragonflight Onyxia has come to the forefront of Azeroth, and she awaits you lurking inside of her lair. Be careful heroes, because if you get in her line of sight, she will shatter the ground making the lava rise to hurt her enemies and protect her brood. Only those prepared to face the Trial of the Crusader or Grand Crusader challenges, will be allowed to face this new threat (this means that every player must have earned the Secrets of Ulduar achievement in order to face Onyxia).
To celebrate the release, available only for a limited time, everyone will be able to purchase the Onyxia Brood Whelpling from the shop for only 1 vote/donation point.
As many of you already know, Onyxia’s release has an important role in being able to complete the following quest chain: The Scepter of the Shifting Sands, which rewards a legendary mount and the title ‘Scarab Lord’. The quest ‘Bang a Gong’ will not trigger the War Effort event, since the Gates of Ahn’Qiraj are just being re-opened and not opened for the first time. The quest will cease to be available 10 hours after it is first completed on the realm. Once the first player starts it, several worldwide announcements will take place.
Currently, we are also preparing an announcement with the beta testing dates for Icecrown Citadel. It will require some heavy testing in raid environments, and it is almost certain that a few sessions will be required – the more people helping us, the better. We are pretty excited about it, as we are aiming to have this raid as perfect and polished as possible with all kind of details, including events and roleplays.
Thank you very much for reading.
