Raid Progression[edit]

There are three tiers of raids, and each tier will open one month per tier after the expansions launches. So, tier 1 will become accessible one month after the expansion launches. Tier 2 two months and tier 3 three months after the expansion opens. This is the same process used for Torment of Velious raids.


On January 7th, 2021 the first tier of raid events will become available.


  • Tantor
  • Klandicar and the New Brood
  • Zlandicar Reborn


Then on February 6th, 2021 the second tier of raid events become available.


  • The Crusaders
  • Sontalak
  • Aaryonar


And on March 8th, 2021 the final tier become available.


  • Defenders of the Tomb
  • Amalgam Arbiter
  • Vulak'Aerr


Also, to request the Amalgam Arbiter and Vulak'Aerr events, the person doing the requesting must have recently defeated the Defenders of the Tomb. In game terms, they must have the lockout for Defenders of the Tomb to get the Sleeper's Tomb dynamic zone.

Spells[edit]

NPC spell merchants in The Western Wastes (Claws of Veeshan)

Six months after the release of Claws of Veeshan, the ability to "trade down" (exchange a higher level spell item for a lower level one) will be enabled.

Rank I

Rank I spells can be purchased from NPC merchants in The Western Wastes (Claws of Veeshan) in the south-east part of the zone, south of the tunnel to Cobalt Scar (Claws of Veeshan). The NPCs are Wiltie MacHadden (Priest Spells), Beestibo Saibotaz (Caster Spells), Kimbrose Galivan (Hybrid Abilities), and Knox Ridordy (Melee Tomes). Each spell or tome costs around 4,000 platinum.

Rank II

Rank II spells are gotten by clicking Bloodmarked Velium Gem drops from named mobs or randomly off of trash mobs. Bloodmarked Velium Gems can also grant Rank II Torment of Velious spells.

Rank III

Rank III spells are gotten from clicking Dragontouched Runes gotten from raid chests in CoV raids. Dragontouched Runes can also grant Rank III Torment of Velious spells. Six months after the release of Claws of Veeshan, you will be able to purchase CoV Rank III spells with Warforged Emblems from Morton Stonebreaker (Raid Merchant) in The Western Wastes (Claws of Veeshan) in the south-east part of the zone, south of the tunnel to Cobalt Scar (Claws of Veeshan).

Progressive spells[edit]

Main article: Progressive spells

Claws of Veeshan includes an upgrade to the Progressive spells called Composite. The base spells/discs/songs are sold by NPC vendor Krykorn Elsonower (Progressive Abilities) in The Western Wastes (Claws of Veeshan) in the south-east part of the zone, south of the tunnel to Cobalt Scar (Claws of Veeshan).

Items[edit]

Links[edit]

Visible armor[edit]

Visible armor is created using a dropped item "Faded Armor" combined with either Snowsquall Refined Velium (~21,000 platinum), Blizzard Refined Velium (~26,000 platinum), or Hoarfrost Refined Velium (~37,000 platinum) and the proper class emblem. The refined velium may be purchased from Olwen (Merchant) in The Western Wastes (Claws of Veeshan) in the south-east part of the zone, south of the tunnel to Cobalt Scar (Claws of Veeshan). The class emblem may be purchased from Olwen, as well as vendors at the small bank in Plane of Knowledge (Plate/Chain classes at Blacksmith Gerta (Smithing Merchant), Silk/Leather classes at Tailor Kujen (Tailoring Merchant), among other places.

Group

Tier 1 armor is known as Faded Snowsquall. Tier 2 armor is known as Faded Blizzard.

Raid

Raid armor is known as Faded Hoarfrost.

Tradeskilled (Visible armor)

There is a set of group tradeskilled, Velium Threaded, and one of raid tradeskilled, Velium Endowed. Like Torment of Velious, the tradeskilled armor is better than the dropped.

Tradeskilled[edit]

Some tradeskill items, as well as new recipe books, can be purchased from Olwen (Merchant) in The Western Wastes (Claws of Veeshan) in the south-east part of the zone, south of the tunnel to Cobalt Scar (Claws of Veeshan).

Various No Trade items drop in Claws of Veeshan and are used in the same fashion as those in Torment of Velious. As of the January 20, 2021 game update, Crystallized Restless Ore will drop, "100 % on chests, Rare on Rares".

Power Sources[edit]

There are no new power sources for Claws of Veeshan.

Chase[edit]

There are no new extremely rare raid level items in CoV. The chase items from Torment of Velious do have a chance to drop in CoV.

Various[edit]

Luck[edit]

Tier 1 group items do not have luck.

Alternate currency[edit]

Claws of Veeshan introduces two new alternate currency types:

Lore[edit]

Claws of Veeshan continues the tales that began in Torment of Velious. Velious is overwhelmed with writhing ice. Frozen undead swarm everywhere. The few survivors that remain throw aside old hatreds -- for now at least -- and band together to survive.

Follow the chilling trail of ice into the lands dominated by the dragons of Velious. Find the source of the mysterious and restless ice and put an end to the dangers that have enveloped the entire continent.

It is time for the bravest heroes of Norrath to challenge the dragons of Velious and put an end to the deadly magic that has tormented the citizens of the continent.

The heroes of Norrath arrive to help them, but they have not discovered the source of the deadly ice. The remaining giants of Kael Drakkel, now more able to move around their city, carve a tunnel out to the Cobalt Scar.

Rise to the challenge! Face the ancient dragons of Velious and bring them to account for their actions!
