Valnoth, the lead world designer for World of Warcraft, has announced that heroic dungeons are now available for testing by players in the Cataclysm beta. He points out that beta testers should create new premade characters for this testing since the new characters will come with ilevel 333 blue gear. That is the level gear considered the minimum to get into heroics in Cataclysm, and Valnoth highly recommends you get that level before testing.
