Mists of Pandaria

New Feature : Challenge Mode


Challenge Modes

Challenge Modes

          Challenge Modes are the new DPS meters. Your DPS, HPS, or TPS; whatever you used to compete versus other WoW Players with is finally going to be exposed as an inaccurate gauge of skill. Arenas helped to separate the pros from the scrubs in PvP. Now PvE gets their own test of skill.

          Challenge Modes are timed dungeon runs. The objective is to defeat all the dungeon's bosses as quickly as possible. It doesn't matter what gear each group member has, everyone will be assigned equal equipment in a Challenge Mode dungeon run. The better your time, the higher you rank, and the better the rewards.


Challenge Mode Info

  • Initially Challenge Modes will only be available for the new MoP dungeons. They are intended to be slightly harder than Heroics.

  • Medals can be earned based on the completion time of the dungeon (Gold, Silver, Bronze)

  • A leaderboard with the overall best times will show how your best times rank vs. others. Challenge modes will not have world rankings at first. They will have region rankings on their website.

  • Equipment will be normalized. This means that everyone will have an equal chance to break the record regardless of their equipment.

  • Rewards will be awesome looking vanity items, Valor Points, Mounts, Titles and of course bragging rights.

  • Collecting all the gold medals will reward the player with a unique epic mount called the flying Kwai-Lan, which will not be rewarded any other way. It is similar to one of those Chinese dog statues with a Mogu like head.

  • You will be able to check your Challenge Mode stats in a new tab integrated into the UI.
