Everything About Delves in The War Within

Delves are a key feature in World of Warcraft’s expansion, The War Within. Designed for 1-5 players, these short, role-agnostic adventures provide a flexible, engaging endgame experience. They draw inspiration from Torghast, Islands, and offer variety and player choice.


What Are Delves?

Delves are small scenarios set in Khaz Algar, designed for groups of 1-5 players. Each adventure lasts 10-15 minutes and does not require specific roles like tanks or healers. Delves are set to become a lasting feature in World of Warcraft, establishing themselves as a core component of the endgame world content. It will have a progression system, however, it will work outside of Raiding, Mythic+, or PvP. Players are accompanied by NPC companions, such as Brann Bronzebeard, who can fill various roles and provide narrative context.

Basics of Delves

  • Companion System: Brann Bronzebeard joins players, especially when not in a full group, providing customizable DPS or healing abilities. He can be tailored to different roles and helps with gathering materials like herbs and mining nodes.
  • Objective-Based: Players advance through Delves by completing objectives, battling rare mobs, and finding treasure chests. Each Delve culminates in a boss fight, unlocking treasure vaults.
  • Dynamic Content: Delves feature puzzles, platforming elements, and dynamic objectives that change daily, providing more dynamic content as they are not restricted to dungeons/raids.
  • Amazing Rewards: Delves introduces exciting rewards such as mounts, pets, and unique seasonal items, with helpful NPCs to aid players. Moreover, Delves are integrated into the Great Vault system, offering valuable weekly rewards and playing a crucial role in the expansion’s progression and reward framework.
  • No Loading Screens: Delves integrate seamlessly into the world without loading screens.
  • Narrative Tie-Ins: Each Delve includes story elements, with companions leveling up and providing new abilities.
  • Variable Content: Delves can vary weekly, offering different challenges and environments.
  • Brann Bronzebeard: In Season 1, Brann Bronzebeard is the companion for Delves. He levels up as players progress through Delves, unlocking new powers.

How To Start In Delves

When you enter a Delve, Brann Bronzebeard will join you as a companion if you’re not in a full group. You can configure his role and equipment at the start. Simply check the objectives to begin.

Delves function similarly to the scenarios from Mists of Pandaria, where you progress by completing objectives. Along the way, you may encounter side tasks like defeating rare mobs, finding treasure chests, and gathering herbs or mining nodes. Brann can collect these resources if no one else in your group can.

Additionally, you might discover summon stones that provide extra checkpoints in case of a wipe. At the end of a Delve, you will face a boss. Defeating it grants you access to a treasure vault filled with gold and chests. Higher-level Delves offer more chests that require keys to unlock.

Currently, Delves drop gear and a new currency called Resonant Crystal, which can be used to purchase cosmetic items like kobold candle helms from Sir Finley Mrgglton in Dornogal.
