This week I head back to the Caverns of Time for another romp through the history of World Of Warcraft, this time to the Opening of the Dark Portal. In this time instance you are sent back to the Black Morass to protect Medivh in his attempt to open the Dark Portal. To do so, you must stop wave after wave of Infinite Dragonflight MOBs with little rest time in between. The instance is a completely scripted even from start to finish meant for players level 68 and above. It is commonly referred to as BM because of the fact that it takes place in the Black Morass, now called the Swamp of Sorrows.

The instance is essentially one long scripted fight and can be very unforgiving. For example if you only have one rezzer and he/she dies, the instance is a wash. The difficulty issues aside, it is a totally different type of instance and one that I really like. Every group I run it with finds it insanely fun. Better yet the whole instance can be done in less than 40 minutes and offers some amazing loot.

You can read all about the instance in TenTonHammer's Guide to "Opening the Dark Portal".
