So I just went in and out the new map and here are my impressions and some pictures for those who cant get in (or are lazy ).
You can sign up through the new Group finder. Apart from two Onslaught modes and weekly raids, you will find all classic dungeons here. To join you have to meet the level (purist) requirements or simply form a private group if you wanna go above the level.
No unchained modes, just the normal ones and also no Khitai/Spine/Ardashir ones.
Be sure to have exactly the needed roles if you are signing as the new finder will fill only like: 1 tank, 1 heal, 4 DPS. So if you have 2 or more healers in group, ask the others to sign as DPS
At first look the map looks huge! But according to a dev its actualy smaller than the first one. But it has some nice Skyrimish vibes… so dont forget to slot your Fus Ro Dah!
After speaking to the NPC Hylda at the gate, you will follow her to the altar where she will start a ritual and you will have to protect her - if Hylda dies, its over!
Before you talk to her again you can freely explore the whole map:
As you may already guessed the “???” gem slots are gone and we have two brand new slots:
Hyperborean - can be bought via NPC shop in OT as a “gamble bag” in rare/epic/legendary quality:
White Hand - can only be obtained during the fight in the form of loot (like in Kutchemes) drops.
While the Hyperborean gems will focus on additional stats, the White Hand ones looks interesting as those add new spells/abilities on damage like this one will strike your enemy with a lightning strike!
And ofc there will be new tokens to collect and spend
So thats it from me (played as a ToS - Yasmela). Will come back after more waves defeated!
PS: do you remember Favoured of Louhi from T3 raid? Well… his mistress, the high priestess Louhi herself will be there to kick your ■■■ and to drain all mana from you!
