World of Warcraft will finally implement story mode raids starting with The War Within


It’s taken a mighty long time to get here and years upon years of players begging for it, but come this fall, World of Warcraft will finally add a story mode to its raids so that soloers or smaller groups can also enjoy the scenery and lore. Initially, this will roll out in The War Within’s first raid, Nerub-ar Palace.

WoW’s devs announced this new feature on the official site, saying, “We’ve been working on a new raid experience for The War Within called Story difficulty […] With Story difficulty in Nerub-ar Palace, our goal is to offer players a way to see the epic conclusion of Azj-Kahet’s story who may not see the end to that story otherwise. This difficulty is intended for a private party of one to five players and will allow players to face off against Queen Ansurek without the assistance of other players or Followers.”

Blizzard emphasized the story mode is vastly easier and can be repeated if players want to soak up the sights and narrative again. Nerub-ar Palace’s story mode will arrive around the same time that the final wing of LFR becomes available for that raid. The studio did not mention how much or whether any loot will drop when this difficulty setting is activated, however.
