Looking for something else to do during the downtime between expansions? Why not give challenge modes a whirl? Challenge mode dungeons are more than heroic dungeons with a timer attached.
I have mentioned wanting to try challenge mode a few times in the last month or so but it seems like many people are even this late into the expansion, still intimidated by these timed heroic dungeons. So I’m sharing some tidbits from this great article on WowInsider “Getting Started with Challenge Mode Dungeons” which runs thru the gear requirements, suggested consumables, general tips, and video guides.
How to Complete a Challenge Mode
You cannot queue for a challenge mode and must physically go to each dungeon with a pre-made 5-man group in order to begin. From there, the group leader simply sets the dungeon difficulty to challenge mode and once inside there is an orb to click which starts the timer.
There are a few objectives to complete inside each challenge mode to earn a medal:
- Defeat all bosses. These will be listed in your on-screen quest tracker and will be checked off the list once you kill them.
- Defeat X number of enemies. You will never have to kill every enemy in the instance. Knowing what enemies to skip is crucial to getting gold medals. The video guides will cover which packs can be safely skipped.
- Kill all bosses and the required amount of enemies before the time expires. The timer will be on your screen at all times, and will first start counting down to a gold medal completion. If you fail that it will switch to silver, and so on.
There are a multitude of rewards give from challenge mode dungeons; valor points, account wide title “the Undaunted”, achievements, unique (AWEsome) armor sets, and with bronze your choice of one Pandaren Phoenix mount.
Blizzard has unveiled more of the new model characters including human female, dwarf female, and orc female. What do you think of these newest peeks to what will be coming with WoD?
The new female human and orc models are quite nice but I have to wonder about the direction, the dwarf female design went, a little cartoon’ish isn’t it? Then I spotted this comment from Kniteforce who ask “When did Blizz hire Disney artists?” Well at least I’m not the only one who noticed!
Love is in the Air – If you have it, it’s time to slap on “the Love Fool” title and head out to collect Lovely Charm(s). It’s a tedious task but hey adding the Swift Lovebird mount to our collection makes it worth it.
There is a second mount available only during this event but this one takes a huge amount of luck RNG to win. Your first daily run through Crown Chemical Co. trio fight in Shadowfang Keep during the Love is in the Air event will reward you with a Heart-Shaped Box this box has a chance to drop:
Hey if you get lucky this year and find the Big Love Rocket in your goodie box don’t brag to me! LOL OK ok, this is serious bizness right, so I’m really hoping to check if off my list this year and best of luck to all of you too.
No rolling to click the orb. No rolling for blame. No rolling for anything actually unless loot counts! A few of us defectors got together this evening for some good times running old content like Eye of Eternity, ToC, and Naxx without the stupid shenanigans that have become common place in our old guild. It was fun for all around, shared a lot of giggles we did. We’ll have to do it again soon guys!
No more “Don’t kill the cat!”. HaHa.
What do you get when you put two leather workers together with time to spare? A Heavy Leather Ball war of course!
This new data-mined pet/mount is speculated to be the next collectors edition mount – pet reward and many people aren’t very happy about it. The pet is called “The Dread Hatchling” and is just cute as a button!! The mount however looks more like a updated version of “Ravenlord” from heroic Sethekk Halls.

I personally like the mount, but I would love it if didn’t have that ugly chair.
