First off, an official description of the new raid for WoW Dragonflight gives you an idea of what you and your raid party will have to face: "The Primalists breached the Titan prison used to hold the Incarnates for millennia. Within, Raszageth performs a foul ritual to unleash her siblings so together they can purge the world of the Titans' influence.

"The champions of Azeroth must assault this impregnable fortress and break their defenses to end this threat. While many could fall, defeat condemns all the realms to the Incarnates' reign of fire and blood."

With the lore description out of the way, you should know there are eight bosses and that Normal, Heroic, and Mythic Vault of the Incarnates will open at the same time.
