Blizzcon World of Warcraft Dungeons and Raids Panel

Dungeons:

  • Classic dungeons Deadmines and Shadowfang Keep have been completely reworked with new quests and encounters…they also have heroic modes
  • Quests for all dungeons will be picked up right inside the entrance
  • Lord Godfrey is the new final boss of Shadowfang Keep
  • Vanessa VanCleef is the new final boss of Deadmines
  • Goals of reworking some of the classic dungeons:
    • Make them less confusing
    • Shorten them
    • Make them more fun!
  • Some methods to reach these goals
    • Create wings that will separate the content (e.g Uldaman and Mauraudon)
    • Trimming the dungeons by having less trash pulls, shorter spans between bosses, and/or cutting out sections of the dungeon (e.g. Sunken Temple and Wailing Caverns)

Raids:

  • Raid Philosophy for Cataclysm
    • More raid zones for ship
    • Coolest encounters yet (i.e. don’t wake a sleeping dragon!)
    • Bite-sized chunks – no more 14 boss dungeons
    • Content for everyone – normal and heroic modes
    • Flexible raid lock system
