World of Warcraft: Battle For Azeroth Uldir Raid Details Revealed, Including Release Schedule
It’s almost time, WoW heads! Whether you’re screaming “For the Horde!” or rallying up your Alliance scum friends (kidding! Sort of …), the biggest and arguably most exciting expansion for Blizzard’s incredibly popular MMORPG World of Warcraft is almost here.
Battle for Azeroth promises a thrilling climax to an incredible narrative that has given players over a decade of enjoyment. Both sides must choose, both sides must fight, and life in Azeroth will never be the same! Luckily, one thing will stay the same – and that’s raids and now we know exactly when the Uldir Raid will commence once the new expansion launches.
The raid (and PvP season, etc.) opening three weeks after the expansion launches has been the standard for the past couple of expansions now. That number was chosen based on player gameplay patterns in terms of getting to max level and starting to gear up.

Blizzard has confirmed that the raid will begin on September 4th and stagger form there:
- Uldir – Normal and Heroic, Sept 4th
- Mythic Race to kill G’huun (Blood God), Sept 11th
- Looking for Raid matchmaking difficulty will also be released
- Wing two of Looking for Raid, Sept 25th
- Final wing, Oct 9th
For those that might be new to Uldir, it’s an ancient city filled with scientific wonder and oddities – but don’t forget the danger. With so many experiments having gone wrong and titan constructs galore, there is no shortage of bosses that players must face down:
- Fetid Devourer
It’s exciting to get back into the full swing of things, especially for those players that may have tampered off once they’ve had their fill of the previous expansion; Legion. For more about the expansion itself:
In Battle for Azeroth, the stakes for the Alliance and the Horde are incredibly high, and a player’s faction will have a more meaningful impact on their experience than in any World of Warcraft expansion to date,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “Whether they’re journeying to unexplored lands to recruit allies or fighting to secure war resources, players will redefine what it truly means to be ‘For the Horde’ or ‘For the Alliance’ when the expansion arrives this August.”
World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth officially releases on August 14th! Are you ready?
