Instanced Raids Unveiled!

20 Jun 2011

As has been previously announced, 1.18 will usher in new battle content in the form of instanced raid areas—forsaken domains wherein parties attempt to cut a path through hoards of fell foes.

The Thousand Maws of Toto-Rak


Named for the thousand-mawed beast of Padjali legend—and in turn lending its dreaded moniker to a bygone warden of exceptional infamy—the endless cells of this notorious dungeon once held such heinous criminals as poachers and arsonists. Deemed barbaric and unworthy of Gridanians, Toto-Rak was abandoned and sealed three decades ago, its labyrinthine network of tunnels and shafts now given over to feral beasts.


The Dzemael Darkhold


Formerly an expansive system of natural caverns, the Darkhold was established when Count Dzemael of Ishgard recognized its potential as a subterranean fortress in the war against dragonkind. Work has since been ongoing to prime its vaulted chambers and rocky passageways for military purposes. Recently, however, word has arrived by way of leaked intel that troops of foreign origin have seized occupation of the Darkhold for an as-yet unknown end.
