Cataclysm: New Dungeons & Raids Preview: "We recently previewed the upcoming Cataclysm zones, where we showed off the awesome new zones players will be able to experience in less than a week. We've not only got awesome zones such as Uldum, Kezan and Vashj'ir to look forward to, but many of these new zones feature new dungeons and raids as well! Cataclysm will ship with eight new dungeons, two upgraded Heroic versions of classic dungeons, and four new raids (with more being released in later patches). These dungeons will (of course) feature both normal and heroic versions, with raid encounters offering unlockable encounter-specific difficulty toggling. These raids will support the Flexible Lock System (detailed here, as well as in our Cataclysm Guide), allowing players to adjust raid sizing as necessary.
We've already seen quite a bit of new dungeon loot courtesy of the Cataclysm Beta, and there are many new items which can be purchased from vendors (including Tier 11 pieces!) using the new Justice Points and Valor Points currencies. Thankfully, Blizzard gave us a peek at how many points we can plan on earning in these upcoming dungeons and raids!
Cataclysm Heroic dungeon boss - Justice Points
Cataclysm Daily Normal dungeon - Justice Points
Cataclysm Daily Heroic dungeon - Valor Points
Cataclysm 10-player raid boss - Valor Points
Cataclysm 25-player raid boss - Valor Points
Check out previews of all of the upcoming dungeons and raids in Cataclysm (with screenshots, videos and more!) after the break!
