At the time of writing this, there is no officially released schedule for the upcoming content in WoW WotLK. However, we are easily able to speculate about what things will be coming and when based on the original release schedule of WotLK. Check out the five phases of updates down below:

Phase 1

Here is what was released during phase one of WotLK:

  • Naxxramas Raid
  • The Eye of the Eternity Raid
  • The Obsidian Sanctum Raid
  • Arena Season 5

These Raids all went live on October 6 at 6 PM EST.

Phase 2

Here is what was released during phase two of WotLK:

  • Ulduar Raid

The Ulduar Raid launched on 19 January 2023. Check out our dedicated article about the Secrets of Ulduar update.

Phase 3

Here is what was released during phase three of WotLK:

  • Trial of the Crusador Raid
  • Onyxia's Lair Raid
  • Argent Tournament World Event

Phase 4

Here is what was released during phase four of WotLK:

  • Icecrown Citadel Raid

Get ready to take on the Lich King, presumably around early December 2023?

Phase 5

Here is what was released during phase five of WotLK:

  • The Ruby Sanctum

The final phase of WotLK should launch sometime in 2024. This should provide enough gear to those still finding it difficult to complete the Icecrown Citadel Raid.
