Blizzard Previews New WoW Raid: Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible Raid Preview and Schedule

Blizzard Entertainment has announced the upcoming release of a new raid for World of Warcraft. The Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible Raid will be part of the Dragonflight Expansion and is set to challenge players with new enemies, bosses, and rewards.

Aberrus is a secret laboratory established by Neltharion, also known as Deathwing, where he conducted world-altering experiments. Now rediscovered, the laboratory is under attack from various forces that seek to claim the Earth-Warder’s legacy. Players must venture into the shadows and ensure Neltharion’s dark power doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.

The raid consists of nine bosses with different difficulty levels, including Raid Finder, Normal, Heroic, and Mythic. The Raid Finder Minimum Item Level is set at 390. The raid unlock schedule will be divided into four wings, with the first wing becoming available on the week of May 8th.

Players will encounter Kazzara, the Hellforged, The Amalgamation Chamber, The Forgotten Experiments, Assault of the Zaqali, Rashok the Elder, The Vigilant Steward, Zskarn, Magmorax, Echo of Neltharion, and Scalecommander Sarkareth in their quest to stop those who seek to claim Neltharion’s power.

Additionally, new achievements and meta-achievements will be available to players who complete certain objectives. There will also be a mount reward, the Shadowflame Shalewing, and a title reward, Heir to the Void, for those who complete the Mythic Difficulty level.

The Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible Raid is part of the Embers of Neltharion content update, and Blizzard Entertainment has set a release date for the new raid to be sometime soon. Players are eager to see what challenges the new raid will bring and are already preparing themselves for the upcoming adventure.
