Time to stop a Prison Break

There are many new instances in the World of Warcraft:Wrath of the Lich King (WotLK), some of them you need to travel a long distance to reach, others are located right underneath your nose. One such instance is the Violet Hold found right in the heart of Northrend's main city of Dalaran. Byron "Messiah" Mudry ventures into this prison instance to assist the Kirin Tor in preventing the Blue Dragonflight from using it as beach head to assault the city of Dalaran from..

To start the instance, you simply talk to Lieutenant Sinclari at the door and she will pull the guards out and lock and seal the door behind her. Portals start opening and the waves then start, at which point you must start defending the door's seal. Each portal will spawn one of three possible guardians: a caster, a warrior, or a group of four elites. In addition to the guardians the portal will occasionally spawn other creatures that will make their way to the doorway and try to break the seal.

You can find all the details in our Sneak Peak of the Violet Hold Instance.
