8.2 PTR - Azshara's Eternal Palace Environment Preview
09/05/2019 alle 23:52
We got our first look at the Azshara's Eternal Palace raid earlier today on the 8.2 PTR. We explored the area around the first 4 bosses -- from the entrance to the encounter room of Lady Ashvane. As we zone in the raid, Queen Azshara herself welcomes us, happy to see that we are joining her in her Palace, continuity from the
Nazjatar Quest Experience

Shandris and Thalyssra Confront Their Past in Zin-Azshari
When you zone in, you see Shandris Feathermoon, Jaina Proudmoore, Lor'themar Theron and First Arcanist Thalyssra standing at the top of the stairs. Down the stairs, you can see some 7th Legion and Honorbound soldiers. When you head down the stairs, the 4 move down the stairs and start some RP.
: Champions! We'll hold this position while you cut a path through Azshara's elite guard!
: Let Azshara's lackeys break upon our ranks! We will not yield!
: Welcome to my Eternal Palace, honored guests. Our festivities can finally commence.
: I fear there a few final details that require my attention. Until I return, my servants will keep you... entertained.
Heading down the first great hall, you get to the first boss - Abyssal Commander Sivara.
Path to the Second Boss
After you defeat Abyssal Commander Sivara, Queen Azshara has some remarks as you travel to another room with a giant Naga statue.
: It is good you survived. I would hate for our gathering to end prematurely.
: Enough of these games, Azshara. Face us!
: Patience, little one. We will be together soon enough.
It looks like a dead end, but at the back of the statue is a little pool of water, and upon closer inspection, you'll see that the pool of water has depth, leading you to the next area.
Lady Ashvane's Barrier
You emerge in a room with Lady Ashvane's Barrier preventing you from going any further. However, First Arcanist Thalyssra is there and has some advice on how to proceed.
First Arcanist Thalyssra:
Ashvane means to hold us at bay. But I can sense fonts of magic close by that are feeding into this room.
First Arcanist Thalyssra:
If we disrupt the flow of those channels, Ashvane's barrier will fall.
You then have a choice of fighting either the Radiance of Aszhara or the Blackwater Behemoth and defeating both will allow you to encounter Lady Ashvane herself.
The Blackwater Behemoth is the "Underwater Boss" announced at Blizzcon 2018. Heading down the left path, you find yourself going downwards until you find a pool of water. Swimming further, you end up in a large underwater cavern, complete with small caves that are part of the Blackwater Behemoth encounter. The area is very large, but there's a mechanic on the boss fight that allows you to swim faster.
Radiance of Azshara
Heading the other direction takes you to the Radiance of Azshara. Judging by the boss room, it appears that the Radiance of Azshara is a stationary boss and players have a platform to stand on that encircles the boss, similar to Wrath of Azshara from the Eye of Azshara Dungeon.
Upon returning back to the hub and disrupt the fonts, you'll find the Barrier disabled and with Lady Ashvane asking Queen Azshara to honor their deal.

: We had a deal, Azshara! Give me the power you promised!
: Oh I intend to. I merely wanted our guests to bear witness to your glorious ascension.
: No! Not like this! What are you doing to me?!
: You asked to be powerful, Priscilla. Consider our bargain complete.
Lady Ashvane is then transformed into a grotesque Sea Giant, wearing the tattered remains of her Kul Tiras armor. Notice the blue sleeve trim on the giant's right arm, and Kul Tiran belt and red trim around her waist.
We're not sure exactly how we get to the next boss -- The Hatchery, and we'll have to find out in later raid testing!
