[BETA] Probably NOT as Intended...

Last night, I met my first L90 Mob. I'm pretty certain it wasn't intentional.

Shhhhh, I'm hunting spoilers... ^^

I read last night about how the Scarlet Monestary's undergone a bit of a remodel (note to self, go take some pictures of the old one before it goes) so I thought I'd pop up there on the Beta and have a look. For the record, the new FP at Hearthglen is by far the closest flight point now to SM if you possess a flying mount, but I digress. I wasn't concentrating when I entered the instance, had I been so I would have seen the following:




It transpires the last time I went into a 5 man before I copied my character to the Beta Server it was a TBC Heroic... ^^


I had to go back to get this screenie, not unexpectedly.

Needless to say, L90 dogs hurt, but not as much as I thought. I hastily retreated and reset back to normal: lo and behold, L30 mobs, but an instance that is most definitely a Work in Progress. The new Houndmaster encounter appears to be broken, but the path to get to it is a thousand times cooler than it ever was. I got locked into Herod's old room so had to Stone out, but I'd go so far to say that the fifteen minutes I spent in a L30 instance is the most exciting thing I've seen so far in the entire Expansion. MMO has a video up of both instances and they'll do a better job of showing the changes than I will but needless to say, I'd argue you'll want to do both Normal and Heroic just because...

I have no idea if setting your dungeon difficulty to Heroic will toggle the L90 instance this morning when I go back, but I guarantee the time the next Beta Build goes live they'll have stopped it, so if you are on Beta and want to go take a look at what Real Hard Mobs look like, I'd go soon...

[EDIT: 9.25am BST, and you can still toggle Heroic Difficulty.

L90 Dog health and buffs explained.

Needless to say, as I'm pretty sure this is a bug I will report it. Get your skates on.]
