Why Do the Monster Mission Raids?

Ever wonder what it was like to Raid back in 1999 when the Land of Norrath was first explored?  The Classic Monster Mission Raids gives players the chance to raid with oldschool gear and shrouded down to 50 against the first two Raid Dragons; Lord Nagafen and Lady Vox.  The Raid gives players a fun, challenging, and nostalgic experience as well as the chance to gain some loot that still holds value in the game today!

Upon your successful completion of the Ancient Heroes – Lord Nagafen and Ancient Heroes – Lady Vox, additional items will be unlocked that can be purchased with “McKenzie’s Special Brew”.
