Old Gods are a staple of World of Warcraft’s lore at this point, and we’re finally here to put the last one to rest. Blizzard has added the fourth and final wing of the final raid of Battle for Azeroth to the Raid Finder feature.

If you’re unfamiliar, the Raid Finder feature is used to automatically match players with a raid party to clear out endgame content. There are a few tradeoffs to this. Firstly, you likely won’t have the same communication with a Raid Finder team as you will an organized and pre-planned raiding group. Second, the Raid Finder difficulty is considerably easier than the rest (partially to counter the communication issue stated above), so the gear drops aren’t quite as good. Still, it’s a great way to gear up and learn fights before taking them in on harder difficulties.

The addition of the final wing includes the last two bosses, The Waking Dream: Carapace of N’Zoth, and N’Zoth the Corruptor himself. This means that players will be able to completely finish the raid through the Raid Finder feature, as this now means that the entire raid has been added to the feature. Previously, only the first three wings were open, providing access all the way up to Il’gynoth, Corruption Reborn.

All in all, there are twelve bosses within the raid. Players delve into the mythical city of Ny’alotha where the Old Gods have made their home, with only N’Zoth still alive to take on the players after the adventurers put the others to a more permanent rest in the previous expansions.

“Ny’alotha, the sleeping city has awakened. For the first time in millennia, N’Zoth sits on his throne within the Black Empire. His armies flood from their dark halls, once again wreaking havoc on Azeroth.”

As Blizzard describes it, anyway. On Raid Finder difficulty, you’ll likely find it considerably less daunting than all that hype hints at. It’s a great way to experience the lore and content, but many experienced raiders don’t consider the Raid Finder difficulty to even really be “raiding,” per se, and instead be akin to running a quick dungeon.

You’ll need to at least have an item level of 410 before you can jump into the Raid Finder feature but your item level should climb pretty quickly once gear starts dropping for you. Gear up, queue up, and take the fight to the Sleeping City so that we can seal away N’Zoth and jump into the upcoming Shadowlands expansion!
