The city of Mechagon and the surrounding junkyards are under threat. Team up with the exiled Prince Erazim and the Rustbolt Resistance to scour the area for gear and treasure. Then players will dethrone a mad king in Operation: Mechagon, a new “mega-dungeon” in the style of Karazhan.
Players will face off against Nazjatar’s mightiest defenders and most fearsome creatures in an 8-boss raid. Finally, the fearsome Queen Beneath the Tides will be challenged.
