With the Cataclysm Beta in full swing, one of the best features is all the new places to explore.  For many players the best areas to explore are the various new instances.  One of those instances is the Stonecore, located in the earthen realm of Deepholm.  It’s an old school type instance that is made up of natural tunnels through the earth.  Join Byron “Messiah” Mudry as he explores this instance.

The fights in this instance are all fun and challenging, even though it feels like some of the early trash is harder than the early bosses. The fights in the instance as a whole are more difficult than many past instances. This seems to be a continuing, and welcome, trend in the Cataclysm Beta.  It seems like Blizzard has realized that at this point players have had to make it past 80 levels and some skill should be expected.  Hurray!
