Breakfast Topic: How random your dungeon is

Matthew Rossi

The new random dungeon feature in patch 3.3 promises to change how we PuG. Not only will you be able to run the same heroic more than once in a day if that's how the luck of the draw works out (a feature that would have been very handy for me back in the days of farming CoS for a fist weapon, which of course never dropped for my shaman) but we'll be able to get fabulous prizes (well, if you're into mini pets anyway) for doing so. Like many curious folk, I went onto the PTR myself to try it out I logged onto my death knight (not a premade, so warts and all) and signed up for a DPS slot, figuring that would be the longest wait. Amazingly it popped almost immediately and we were soon pugging our way through the Pit of Saron, with no major glitches aside from a tumble I myself took off of a cliff during a fight.

The whole experience was pretty much universally positive for me, so I'm looking forward to seeing the implementation in patch 3.3. My question for you is, are you likewise excited? Will you run it until you get the pet and then say sayonara to random dungeoning? How are you going to make use of this new feature, or will you at all?

Patch 3.3 is the last major patch of Wrath of the Lich King. With the new Icecrown Citadel 5-man dungeons and 10/25-man raid arriving soon, patch 3.3 will deal the final blow to the Arthas.'s Guide to Patch 3.3 will keep you updated with all the latest patch news.

Oh, and consider this a little added bonus feature.

Here I am, post falling off of the cliff. To Shamdunk and the other members of that PuG, yes, that really was me, and I'm sorry I fell off a cliff while we were fighting two pulls about to go into the tunnel. Cheers to all you random puggers out there, you'll never know when that DK, warrior or shaman in the back turns out to be me now.
