Thoth-Amon’s Stronghold is the new Tier 3 raid instance. It has seven boss encounters, including Thoth-Amon himself. In addition players will encounter some of Thoth-Amon’s most powerful allies, both new ones and some they might have met, or at least heard of, before - like Hathor-Ka.
There are also several new items and quests that will be introduced with Thoth-Amon’s Stronghold. As in any raid instance the loot is very important and there should be new interesting items available for everybody to enjoy!
Story wise this will conclude not only the main raiding thread, there are others who are interested in the dealings of one of the most powerful men in the world and his allies. As Thoth-Amon has gathered many of his most powerful allies in his stronghold the extent of his power becomes quite apparent. Some are probably already aware that Thoth-Amon is the force behind a lot of the problems in the world; including your own misfortune at the start of the game but now it may just be as apparent.
As far as the encounters go we don’t really want to give away too much. But who knows: perhaps someone will have to pay the ultimate price, like having the Mark of Acheron reapplied, and maybe washing up on a beach near Tortage, again? Ok, so maybe we won’t do that. We do hope the encounters will prove a fun and interesting challenge for everybody. we dare say the foundation we’re building our raid encounters on has improved radically since Wing 3 was released, and I think that will be reflected in the encounters.
Finally, we are adding something the players have been requesting for a long time – a token system. The token system will be added to Tier 1 and Tier 2 as well as Tier 3. Hopefully this will help alleviate some of the randomness (or perceived lack thereof) in the loot drops.
