World of Warcraft will receive its 5.2 patch tomorrow, and with it a new ‘Throne of Thunder’ raid with many segments. Blizzard has now released the raid schedule in full.

PCGamesN report that the entire raid won’t be accessible from the start as new ‘Raid Finder’ wings will be unlocked throughout March, each stepping up in difficulty. Along the way players have a chance to obtain rare Thunderforged items that are six times as powerful as their standard equivalents.

Here’s the schedule in full. Bear in mind that everyone in your party will need an average item level of 480 to enter each raid.

March 6: Normal Throne of Thunder
March 13: Heroic Throne of Thunder and LFR Wing 1 “Last Stand of the Zandalari”
March 20: LFR Wing 2 “Forgotten Depths”
April 3: LFR Wing 3 “Halls of Flesh-Shaping”
April 17: LFR Wing 4 “Pinnacle of Storms”
