PTR 4.3: Hour of Twilight Instance Open for Testing

Archbishop Benedictus!! Boo Hiss! I'm thinking there's an opening for a new Archbishop in Stormwind!

The new build was deployed to the PTR servers tonight and with it we get the new “Hour of Twilight” instance. Where we have to get Thrall (and the Dragon Soul) to Wyrmrest Temple in the Dragonblight so that he can be on time for “The Dragon Soul” raid. I guess his guild has strict rules on promptness.

Of course the Twilight’s Hammer folks stand in our path. We fight our way south, through the Dragonblight, culminating in a battle with Archbishop Benedictus in the center of Wyrmrest Temple.

This is the third instance out of three in the chain. End Time was first. We haven’t seen the “Well of Eternity” instance yet. It’s number two. This instance seems pretty easy once you get the mechanics of the fights down.

  • Arcurion was a fairly easy tank-n-spank.
  • Asria Dawnslayer has some interesting rogue abilities that will frustrate your DPS by making her un-attackable at times. (Keep out of the smoke.)
  • Benedictus threw us on the first attempt. We went in cold without looking up his abilities. We got him on the second attempt. Avoid his waves and the void zones and you should be golden.

Certain parts of the instance aren’t working yet. Specifically the time machine teleport thing. So if you wipe (like we did on the last boss) you’ll have to run all the way back. Also the random dungeon queue is broken this evening. So if you want to try the instance you have to queue for the specific dungeon.

Also I’d really love to get Benedictus’ priest garb for my priest. It looks very cool, similar to the Avatar set.

Oh, and Thrall runs like an overweight fighter! (He’s not as young as he was in Durnholde Keep!)

Standard Disclaimer about PTR content, it all might change. And probably will.

UPDATE: They fixed the queue. It’s working normally now. Second attempt: I healed and we one shot each boss. I won a spirit cloak!!
