We are pleased to confirm the opening of Blackwing DescentBlackwing Descent today (23rd January).

Blackwing Descent: The culmination of the Blackrock series of instances comes in a new, but familiar form. Blackwing Descent is a raid designed after Blackwing Lair, with its final boss none other but Nefarian himself--resurrected by his father, Deathwing. It is created to serve as an continuation of the story in Blackwing Lair. The raid features a layout similar to its prototype, but with brand new bosses--except for Nefarian, of course.


Normal: 359
Heroic: 372

From the Blizzard Community site:
"Nefarian and his warped attempts to create a new breed of dragon were thought to be defeated after his death in Blackwing Lair. Yet tales have emerged that his father, Deathwing, has reanimated Nefarian and set him to work in Blackwing Descent. The gruesome experiments being conducted there are feared to be on a level of wickedness far surpassing Nefarian's previous crimes against nature.

Dwelling on the lessons learned from his defeat in Blackwing Lair, he has burrowed deeper into the heart of Blackrock Mountain, and rebuilt his sanctuary. The Vault of the Shadowflame, a deep pit of cascading magma, is the heart of Blackwing Descent, and the location of horrific new experiments in undeath and magical augmentation, including a triumph dear to even Nefarian's cold, wrathful heart.

Only death awaits those fools who would assume that the Lord of Blackrock will be easily defeated a second time."
