Patch 4.3 Dungeons & Raids

While there are many new instances coming to World of Warcraft in Patch 4.3 there are a few changes coming to older instances as well:

Dungeon Finder
  • Those hard-core instancers among us will be pleased to find that they will no longer be locked out of an instance once they have queued up for the random Heroic version of it via the Dungeon Finder.
Ruins of Ahn’qiraj
  • Still love to travel into the Ruins of Ahn’qiraj? Now players who venture into this instance will find that bosses will drop a Scarab Coffer Key which can be used to open the Scarab Coffers found throughout the instance. Be sure to open the coffers promptly though as the keys will vanish after 17 hours.
Zul’Gurub and Zul’Aman
  • In every patch its inevitable that at least one instance gets nerfed, so its no surprise that two instances will be seeing the nerf stick in Patch 4.3. In Zul’Gurub players will need only kill two of the four initial bosses to face Jin’do, while the same holds true in Zul’Aman where players will only need to kill two of the four avatars before they can face Hex Lord Malacrass.
