Challenge Mode Leaderboards live on


The Blizzard web team has announced the arrival of Challenge Mode leader boards on the sites in the EU and the US.

These leaderboards aren't exactly alight with activity right now, as most players are still engaged in leveling and the minimum level for challenge mode dungeons is 90. However, once more people get to 90, get familiar with the dungeon content, and get their item level up to the advised, but not required, 463, the leader boards the team have put together will be an invaluable resource.

They allow you, of course, to view all the top-ranked team runs, but also allow you to filter those by class. You could look up every team with a priest in it, or a mage. And once you have that information, you can also use the leaderboards to easily access their spec and gear. If you're logged in, you can also check out how well your guild is doing in challenge modes for various dungeons.

Check the full post out after the break!

Web team
Think you're the fastest at running dungeons? Mists of Pandaria's new Challenge Mode gives you an opportunity to put your speed and teamwork skills to the test. And if you want to know how you rank compared to other players from your realm, you can now view your realm's fastest times by accessing the Challenge Mode Leaderboards in the Community Section.

Once in the leaderboards section, you can view the fastest runs of each dungeon and realm – down to the millisecond. Each party's class makeup and faction is listed, with easy access to individual character profiles. There is also the option to filter by party composition so you can see how you stack up against parties similar to your own.
If you're logged in, the Challenge Mode Leaderboards also offer easy access to your guild's Challenge Mode section, where you can view the top times achieved by members of your guild. In the near future, we will be adding a region-wide leaderboard, as well as a Challenge Mode section in the character profile where you can view your personal bests and medals.

The clock is ticking, so check out the Challenge Mode Leaderboards today!

Other Website Improvements
With the addition of the Challenge Mode Leaderboards, we've completely revamped the Community Section. This page will now give you easy access to:
  • PvP Ladders
  • Challenge Mode Leaderboards
  • Web Auction House
  • Character profile search

In the character profile, we've added an area on the Pets & Mounts page to feature your selected Battle Pet slots.

Every voice matters to us. If you like what you see or if you have any suggestions for design tweaks to these updates, we'd love to hear from you. Just post in the comments or on our website forums and let us know what you think.
