Two World Bosses
This time, with the open of Highmaul, there will be two world bosses in Gorgrond. Click the picture in below to see the guide for the bosses.
Tier 17 Armor Sets Preview
Besides, the long-awaited Tier 17 armor sets won’t be dropped in Highmaul. It is said that all Tier 17 tokens will be found in Blackrock Roundry. With that said, the gear that drops in Highmaul may have a brand new model, so it is worth taking another look.
Legendary Ring Quest
Players who have been staying on top of their legendary Ring quest should have two quests in their logs that require Highmaul, Legacy of the Sorcerer Kings and Empire's Fall. Blizzard has done a good job at keeping the quest chain under wraps and it is currently unknown if we will see the next ring upgrade during Highmaul. However if we are able to obtain the next step before Blackrock Foundry, this will be it!

Seal of Tempered Fate
Seal of Tempered Fates are the new bonus roll item for this first raid tier. This time around there are a few ways you can obtain your weekly cap of 3. If you have your level 3 Dwarven Bunker / War Mill you will get a free Seal each week. There are also two rare Follower missions that may grant you one.
The main way to obtain these will be via the following weekly quests. You can mix and match between the four types. However, the more you buy into the same type each week, the more it will cost you.
