World of Warcraft's Patch 6.2 will add a new raid called Hellfire Citadel. Today Blizzard provided full details on all 13 bosses players will encounter within the Iron Horde Fortress.
Hellfire Assault: The first encounter isn't a singular boss. Instead, Hellfire Assault asks the raid to fight off waves of Iron Horde forces. They must then grab ammunition from destroyed vehicles and use it in nearby cannons to destroy the gates of Hellfire Citadel.
Iron Reaver: This enormous mech was based on a design by Siegecrafter Blackfuse, the goblin inventor that players defeated in the Siege of Orgrimmar raid. Blizzard says that he's the "pinnacle of the Iron Horde's military might."
Kormrok: Kormrok is an enormous and ancient beast captured by the Iron Horde. The warlock Gul'dan used his fel magic to turn the creature into their servant.
Hellfire High Council: Yes, another one of those notorious council fights. The mighty warrior Gurtogg, previously fought in Burning Crusade, will face players along with several champions of the various orc clans in the Iron Horde. One of his companions is Dia Darkwhisper, a mage cast out of the Shadowmoon clan.
Kilrogg Deadeye: Kilrogg is head of the Bleeding Hollow clan and a veteran of countless battles. On top of all that, he's now been corrupted with demon blood.
Gorefiend: Once an orc warlock, Gorefiend was mutated into an obese abomination after eating too many souls. During the encounter players will be consumed by Gorefiend and havw to fight their way out of his stomach.
Shadow-Lord Iskar: During quests in Warlords of Draenor, players tried to help Shadow-Lord Iskar cure his physical ailments. It didn't work, however, so the arakkoa priest made a deal with Gul'dan. In battle, he uses illusions to confuse and divide his foes.
Fel Lord Zakuun: Zakuun looks like an enhanced version of the felguard summoned by warlock characters. Blizzard describes him as the "Patchwerk" of Hellfire Citadel, which suggests this might be a test of your raid's ability to put out damage as quickly as possible.
Xhul’horac: Xhul’horac is a "parasitic void being" travels through realities to consume energy and people alike. If that wasn't weird enough, Gul'dan has also transformed him with fel energy. Now he's able to draw on both shadow and fire magic in battle.
Socrethar The Eternal: Socrethar is a draenei leader who betrayed his people for power. After being defeated by players in a Talador quest, he preserved his soul within a giant metal construct. Blizzard teased that players will control him for short periods of time during the Hellfire Citadel fight.
Tyrant Velhari: Velhari, like Socrethar, is a draenei who made a deal with the devil for more power. She uses many paladin-like abilities with a dark twist. Blizzard says she essentially shifts between the three Paladin specializations during the battle.
Mannoroth: Mannoroth is another blast from the past. After being cut down by Grommash, his blood was used by Gul'dan to corrupt the orcs and their allies. Players will face Mannoroth while he's in the process of being reanimated by Gul'dan's minions.
Archimonde: The villain of Warcraft 3 and the final boss of the Mount Hyjal raid returns for another attempt on players' lives. While the players will be assisted by a number of heroes from Draenor and Azeroth, Archimonde will eventually cut them off from this aid by pulling the raid group into the Twisting Nether.
By defeating these bosses, players can get a range of new loot. The gear will range from item level 675-685 for Raid Finder difficulty to 735 for Mythic. Players can also find a new pet, the Corrupted Nest Guardian.
Patch 6.2 will also include a new questing zone, naval missions for garrisons, and a new difficulty level for dungeons. It also introduces weekend events, which include updated versions of low-level dungeons. Flying mounts, however, won't be included. Blizzard hasn't provided a release date for 6.2 yet but the patch is currently on the Public Testing Realm if you want to try out some of its features.
