Return to Karazhan is a dungeon available on Mythic difficulty and has 9 bosses.
Old and new Karazhan will be accessible at the same time. Return to Karazhan has a mix of familiar faces and new bosses, including three new Opera Encounters.
Some familiar parts of Karazhan return with a twist--the dancers in the banquet hall float in the air, the Mana Devourer trash is now a difficult boss since you're shrunk down to its size, the chess event is topsy-turvy. Some parts of Karazhan are even upside-down.
Karazhan has a new round of Violet Seals, starting with
and ending with
. This is a throwback to the
from original Karazhan quests.
As you progress through the dungeon, you witness small cutscenes from Medivh's past--including the final interaction with his father, Aran, and Lothar and Llane watching over Medivh in a coma.
Karazhan features eight bosses with challenging trash, including a rotating Opera Event...and Nightbane as an additional secret boss. Learn how to progress through the instance with our

Players must get attuned to Karazhan before they can run it. The questline starts from Archmage Khadgar in Dalaran:

: Recover the Fragment of Spite from Blackrook Hold (Mythic), the Fragment of Power from Violet Hold (Mythic), and the Fragment of Torment from Vault of the Wardens (Mythic).

Halls of Valor
Black Rook Hold
Vault of the Wardens
Loot from the first four bosses starts off at ilvl 855; loot from the last four bosses starts off at ilvl 860. Loot from the ninth boss starts at ilvl 875. All loot has a chance to proc a higher ilvl, up to a max of ilvl 895. If an item appears up to 10 ilvls above the base, it will be marked as Warforged in the tooltip. If an item procs +15 or higher, it wll be marked as Titanforged.
There are no weapon drops from Legion bosses as well; but relics drop instead which can be socketed into a weapon for an ilvl gain and specific trait boost. The item level boost provided by the relic scales up:
ilvl 855 relic provides a +45 ilvl boost to your artifact
ilvl 860 relic provides a +46 ilvl boost to your artifact
ilvl 875 relic provides a +51 ilvl boost to your artifact
Many gear slots only have two choices available from Karazhan, save for trinkets and relics. For recommendations as to specific stats on gear, or traits on relics to aim for, check out the
Gearing + Artifact guides
written by our class guide writers!
There are also a number of fun flavor items from Karazhan, like

In Patch 7.1, the leveling ability flow has changed once again. Players have fewer abilities at very low levels, with important ones unlocked at level 20, 40, and 50. There is always something new to look forward to!
Using Rogues as an example, in Patch 7.1 you will start off with
as your combo-point generator at Level 1. If you stick with the Assassination spec, you will replace that ability with
at level 40.
As part of introducing important abilities at levels 20, 40, and 50, some abilities have reshuffled their levels:
Some examples using well-known abilities:
is now available at 20, down from 46,
is now available at 20 up from 10,
is now available at 20 down from 40.
Some abilities acquired at low levels take on additional complexity at higher levels with new Ability Ranks:
is an instant-cast ability acquired at level 3. Rank 2, acquired at level 14, makes Fire Blast always crit. Rank 3, acquired at level 48, gives Fire Blast 2 charges. The end result with all three Ranks is unchanged from how the ability works on live servers, but for a player leveling, the benefits are spread out.
We've updated our leveling guides for new players with the ability changes. If you want to dig into further detail, you can browse our database spell pages by going to Database > Spells > Specialization and then clicking on the spec you prefer.
A number of UI improvements are coming in Patch 7.1. Notable ones include:
Players can hide belt at transmogrification NPCs.
Dungeon Journal has a new option to filter loot by slot.
Gear that is an ilvl upgrade has an arrow in your inventory.
Ancient Mana is blue, not yellow, on the minimap. The cursor is a gathering hand, not a cogwheel. It is also a shared tap!
The flight path map now shows what Loremaster quests in your quest log are in each zone. (In 7.0 the map only showed World Quests.)
