The icy winds of Icecrown continue to blow in WoW’s Northrend, heralding the highly anticipated ‘Call of the Crusade’. Players are invited to rise to the challenge of the Titan Rune Dungeons—Defense Protocol Beta, marking an elevated difficulty level featuring creatures and bosses endowed with new dangerous effects, along with enhanced health and damage.
In a reward for their dauntless bravery, bosses defeated with the Defense Protocol Beta engaged will offer loot from the 10-player version of Ulduar. The final boss carries the promise of an exclusive new currency, ‘Sidereal Essence’. Players can exchange this essence for rewards from 10-player Hard Mode Ulduar gear at the Animated Constellation vendor in the magical city of Dalaran.
On the same day, players can journey to the Crusader’s Coliseum at the Argent Tournament for the ‘Trial of the Champion’, a challenging 5-player dungeon. The Argent Tournament itself is set to commence, featuring new quests and daily quests while providing an opportunity for players to showcase their jousting skills for attractive rewards.
Two days later, on June 22 at 3:00 p.m. PDT (6:00 p.m. EDT), players can answer the ‘Trial of the Crusader’ and ‘Trial of the Grand Crusader’, in both 10 and 25-player versions. This raid challenge will prove a rigorous test of teamwork and strategy, offering potential spoils for those successful.
Additionally, the gates of the Level 80 Onyxia’s Lair will be thrown open for brave adventurers to face Onyxia herself in this revamped encounter, and fans can also anticipate the kickoff of the Wrath of the Lich King PvP Season 7.
