Today Blizzard announced the schedule for World of Warcraft’s next raid, Blackrock Foundry. There are four wings in the new raid for players to tackle starting February 3. This is the second significant content patch since the release of Warlords of Draenor, Warcraft‘s latest expansion, on November 13, 2014. The first raid, Highmaul, was released in early December of last year.
