When does the Vault of the Incarnates raid go live in WoW Dragonflight?

Time to prove yourself.

Vault of the Incarnates is the first raid in World of Warcraft's Dragonflight expansion. The big bad for the expansion, Raszageth, is performing a ritual to unleash her siblings. Should they break free, Raszageth and her siblings will continue their war against the Titans and Dragon Aspects. It falls to you, brave adventurer, and nine to twenty-four others to put an end to this threat when it goes live.

There will be eight boss encounters in Vault of the Incarnates, including the formidable Raszageth herself. As always, the raid race for world's first will kick off the same day, on December 12, 2022. Guilds from around the globe will compete to see who can claim the coveted prize of clearing the raid before anyone else. For those not in a rush, it makes for a good watch and learning experience for when you eventually opt to run it. In the meantime, there's plenty of time to run new content like the Uldaman: Legacy of Tyr dungeon.
