One Of The Coolest Dungeons in World of Warcraft Is About to Change

It's an established tradition that whenever a new World of Warcraft expansion comes out, some classic dungeons get a redesign. After Scholomance and The Scarlet Monastery it's time for a new Upper Blackrock Spire (UBRS), an awesome old dungeon that -- among other things -- became famous for Leeeeeeeroy Jenkins.

Now that people have access to the beta and UBRS as a level 100 instance, we can finally see all the changes. Sadly the whelps and all the Leeeeroy Jenkins stuff is gone (although if you watch carefully, around 9:40 in the first clip you can see the dead body of someone familiar in the Rookery).

Also, UBRS was famous for being unforgiving and being a bit more complex even in the vanilla days. If you weren't careful you could end up easily in Lower Blackrock Spire, the other wing of the Blackrock Spire, by accident. Now this seems to be gone as well.

Here's a walkthrough video, put together by AdriaCraft.

Also here's Method, one of the top guilds in WoW, going through the re-designed dungeon.

    less wow news, more gw2 news!

      Less GW2 news, more {insert MMO of choice here} news!

        Shhhhh! Do you WANT GW2 players to find out about your favorite MMO? You'll ruin everything!

          In GW2 news, they heard you like more jumping puzzles to gate your content - so hered more non unique jumping puzzles you all didnt ask for!

    yeah because Guild wars is the new hotness that has a major content update around the corner *yawn*... nothing bad against GW2 i play it myself but honestly who cares.

      I care,
      Content is always updating and changing

    so this means that the rumours of a raid scaling feature are gone? boooooooooo

    Stop making the game easier... WoW was fun because it was hard, some of those quests in vanilla, ie: the Benediction priest q, was far more legendary than that obvious grind for the current cape.
    UBRS was tough, CC was vital in those instances, R.I.P
    Blizzard began by making a game for the gamers, then got greedy and lazy and changed it to the masses. Increased profits, decreased respect.
