The Heroes of Azeroth Return to Karazhan in recent WoW Patch 7.1

World of Warcraft players are met with the typical Tuesday ritual that is filled with waiting for the server to come back online from server maintenance and any new patches that our applied. This Tuesday players were greeted with patch 7.1. In this patch we have  several new changes to the game including the new Karazhan Mythic Dungeon, which has been dubbed “Return to Karazhan“.

For gamers like myself, we could not be happier to set foot back in the old Burning Crusade raid that we spent countless hours weekly on raid nights. In the new mythic dungeon, we can expect some of the familiar faces as well as some new guests of Medivh’s Tower.

Some of the biggest points of the patch outside of the release of the newest mythic dungeon include:

  • New Trial of Valor Raid
    • New three-boss raid dungeon that completes the story of Stormheim. Odyn as well as Guarm and Helya (from the Helheim chapter) will available to battle in this raid on normal and heroic difficulties two weeks after the release of 7.1
  • New content for the Suramar Campaign
    • Up to this point we have been brought to the entrance of the Nighthold. We will began learning more about the Nightfallen uprising against the Nightborne and Legion allies. New mount Arcanist Manasaber will also be obtainable through this quest line.
  • New World Quests
    • Look for “A Call to Action” quest in Dalaran to begin the new Helarjar World Quests.
  • New Quick Join system
    • You can now quick join friends that are currently in a queue. Simply go to your friends list and find a new tab called “Quick Join” and you will see a list of your friends and the queue they are currently in. Upon selecting “Click to Join”, your friend will receive your request to join and you will be placed in the queue with them.

Many other changes have been made throughout the entire game including a plethora of class adjustments as well as differing game mechanics. All specific information can be found on the official patch notes at the World of Warcraft site.
