As players level in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm they will be sent to all new zones.  Once past the starting zone of their choice they will be directed to an underground zone called Deepholm.  This zone is completely different than any other zone yet in the game due to being in a separate elemental plane and essentially underground.  Join Byron “Messiah” Mudry as he explores this unique zone in the beta.

While the zone is really good because of the imagery, quests, and storyline, it gets even better, and that is because of the difficulty level.  Hurray, it’s hard!  You need to be extremely carefully and can not simply AOE pull and kill everything.  In full tank gear I was still getting hit extremely hard.  In retribution gear on my Paladin or balance gear on my Druid it was pull one creature, carefully, and just live to finish it off in time. 

You can read all about in our Deepholm Zone Preview.
