3.1: Secrets of UlduarEdit

  • New raid: Ulduar

3.2: Call of the CrusadeEdit

  • New event in Icecrown: Argent Tournament
  • New dungeon: Trial of the Champion
  • New raid: Trial of the Crusader

The heroes of the Alliance and Horde are called to the Argent Tournament by Tirion Fordring to prove that they can fight against Arthas. The heroes must face champions of the other faction, beasts native to Northrend, demons, and scourge monsters in the just finished Crusaders' Coliseum, taking on the Trial of the Champion and the Trial of the Crusader. Some more tensions build between the Alliance and the Horde, and they battle it out at the Isle of Conquest, a large island located off the shore of Icecrown.

3.3: Fall of the Lich KingEdit

  • New dungeons: Forge of Souls, Pit of Saron, and Halls of Reflection
  • New raid: Icecrown Citadel

The strongest heroes of the Alliance and Horde enter the Forge of Souls, Pit of Saron, and Halls of Reflection with Jaina Proudmoore and Sylvanas Windrunner, defeating Arthas' top minions, delivering a blow to the scourge. Now that the scourge is weakened, the heroes, along with the Knights of the Ebon Blade and the Argent Crusade, enter the main part of Icecrown Citadel itself to defeat Arthas.

3.3.5: Defending the Ruby SanctumEdit

  • New raid: Ruby Sanctum

With Arthas now slain and Bolvar the new Lich King, the scourge are now just a tiny threat. But the black dragonflight and twilight dragonflight are now a larger threat. At Wyrmrest Temple in Dragonblight, the black dragonflight and twilight dragonflight have entered and taken control of the red dragonflight's Ruby Sanctum. Alexstrasza calls the heroes of the Alliance and the Horde to help retake the Ruby Sanctum and defeat Halion, the Twilight Destroyer.
