Pit of Saron PTR Preview

There’s going to be a few spoilers in here folks, so click away if you don’t want to see anything.

Remember those spinning axes from the days of Black Temple?


Well they remember you too.

And guess what?

They’re back!

Anyway, I partied up with Alex and Matthew from wow.com along with Tristan, from the Elitists podcast. Had to use a pre-made for this since there’s a bug where players who have done the Argent Tournament questline aren’t able to see instance portals.

On a side note, there are no Dwarf Priest premades. What the heck is up with that?

Doing a writeup of my initial impressions healing the place. Will edit this post and put a link to it when it’s available. Edit: Post is up! Here’s a few teaser shots for the time being.

  1. I’m prettier. :p

    The instance is mad easy for premades, even people who don’t know how to use them probably can still win.

    I’m more excited about the events, not so much anything else. And possibly gearing up a paladin is good too.
