World of Warcraft – The War Within: Everything We Know about Delves!



Hello there and welcome to another InstantCarry blog post! We will keep this post fast, easy to read and simple. We wish to place the focus on the new Delves feature that’s coming in The War Within and how it will change the overall view of the game. We’ve recently posted our Warbands post, as well as talked about the Hero Talents, so you can check those if you’re interested as well.

So far WoW has always been known for it’s MMOG aspect. Meaning that in order to achieve great things and earn amazing Rewards you mostly had to get yourself in a good Guild for top-end Raids, find a good ‘pug’ Group for Dungeons and Mythic+ or have good teammates for Arena or RBG in order to reach the pinnacle of content and rating. This time around with Delves being added to World of Warcraft in it’s next expansion, we see Blizzard adapting further to the requirements of it’s player-base.

On a general note, WoW has become a game that is played by many players for the last 20 years, considering the game itself is old, there are many of those who just want to play it as a single-player game and avoid the competitive aspect, and rather than having to work with others there has to be some sort of achievement and accomplishment that can be awarded to those only playing by themselves.

This trend was initiated with the Solo Shuffle for PvP and soon to be for RBG’s as well, but the Delves feature is one of those that will make this happen for PvE. So without further ado, lets talk a bit about what we know regarding Delves in The War Within!

What are Delves in War Within? 

In the highly anticipated World of Warcraft: The War Within expansion, you will come across a revolutionary new feature called Delves. These offer a fresh approach to obtaining gear and various transmog items & cosmetics. Similar to the scenarios from the Mists of Pandaria expansion, Delves will get you in various amazing scenarios filled with challenges and rewards.

Unlike traditional raiding, Delves provide an alternative avenue for acquiring end-game loot. This means players won’t be confined to raiding to obtain coveted tier sets, introducing a welcome element of versatility and unpredictability. Whether you’re a seasoned raider or a casual player seeking excitement in the unknown, Delves promise a wealth of opportunities to test your luck and skills.

Here’s a glimpse into what we know about Delves so far in The War Within expansion, offering a taste of the adventures that await.

How will Delves Work in The War Within? 

Exploring the depths of Delves in World of Warcraft’s The War Within expansion promises an exciting and varied experience for players. To start, you just need to walk up to the entrance and choose to enter. Whether you want to go alone or with a group of up to 5 friends, you can join in.

If you’re not with a full group, Brann Bronzebeard will come along to help you out inside. Once you’re in, you’ll find rare monsters, special chests with cool powers, and even places to gather herbs and mine minerals. To move forward, you’ll need to complete certain tasks, encouraging you to try different things and explore.

As you go deeper, you’ll eventually face a tough boss at the end. Beating this boss earns you access to a treasure room filled with great loot. The higher the level of the Delve, the more chests you’ll find, but these might need special keys to open, adding to the challenge.

Currency in The War Within Delves

Players that decide to descend into Delves will discover a unique currency called Resonant Crystal. These crystals can be traded with Sir Finley Mrgglton in Dornogal for cosmetic items. It’s likely these cosmetics will focus on themes like Kobolds, candles, and cave-inspired features. They may also offer options to customize the new flying mount coming in the next expansion.

What Gear Will I get from Delves? 

Players have the freedom to get into Delves solo or team up with others without worrying about class or role restrictions. What makes each Delve exciting is its dynamic objectives. Even if you revisit the same location, the experience can change completely, keeping the adventure fresh and unpredictable.

Successfully completing Delves rewards players with gear that matches the power level of gear obtained from Heroic raids or Mythic+ Dungeons in WoW: The War Within. Moreover, clearing Delves can also earn players items from the Great Vault. Beyond gear, there’s a wealth of cosmetics, pets, currencies, and mounts waiting to be discovered within Delves. This includes customization options for the Delver’s Dirigible flying machine. Whether you’re a casual collector or a seasoned endgame raider, there’s something exciting for everyone to aim for in this new content.

Blizzard has released a helpful preview with all the essential details that we will post below to follow up on our video tradition.

When it comes to Delves, if we are to compare to some other games like Path of Exile Delves that are extremely rewarding, this system cannot fail. As long as Blizzard makes sure to keep every aspect of the game open to players and give them a wide array of activities to choose from depending on their preference, there is no mistake.

Delves will definitely prove to be one of the most played activities considering a lot of the players love to explore and have some single-player aspects in the game. However, for other achievements and accomplishments in the game such as the Gladiator or Mythic Raiding, you will still need to group up or have us help you!
