Dungeon Level Changes

Community Manager
The Cataclysm has wrought changes to many facets of Azeroth and the dungeons found across the world are no exception. As many of the zones throughout the world now have new level ranges, the dungeons within their borders have been adjusted to match, and the items that drop within those dungeons have had their stats changed accordingly.

Here's a list of all 1-60 dungeons and the level range at which each should be explored, followed by the minimum level required for entry in parentheses.

In order by minimum level to enter.

It would be great if you had listed these in level order instead of (or in addition to) alphabetical order.

Can anyone tell me if these all changed to become more streamlined? I've only done SFK so far, for example, and it was a bit different than I remember. Also a bit more deadly with some move that was one-shotting us almost on the first boss :O .

Should we assume that the actual average mob level is halfway between the numbers you listed? Or do mob levels really range 10 levels within the instance?

I hope it is the first, because I do not look forward to the 'grey mobs at the start and yellow mobs at the end' problem that many old world instances suffered from not being fixed in the major revamp.

Stratholme - Service Entrance

46-56 (41)

I"m guessing the 41 is the level you can queue for this? As I just had a buddy run my hunter through and he was level 37...

So if that's the case there any way you can post the min level for each one?

Upper Blackrock Spire is now a 5-man instead of a raid?

Awesome!

Just wanted to pop in to say, that was way too nice for the Blue to go through the work of rearranging the order! <3

Thank you for the information.

Curious thing, though. I remember watching the Blizzcon stream and they had talked about Uldaman being split into 2 instances.

Is this a planed change and not yet implemented or is it scrapped?

A suggestion if I might; While leveling I noticed that you could queue for a dungeon before you were able to actually do the quests for it. I would suggest maybe changing the level at which you may obtain the quests or restrict the ability to queue to match the quests level.

I for one am doing each dungeon to do the new quests to see the changes etc, but normally only do them once so I can go back to doing the new quest zones. A little annoying to start an instance only to find you can't do the quests until you level one more level (usually happening in the middle of the instance) just to have to run it again.

Kinda sad to see Scholo nerfed to a 38-48 dungeon. I used to ride Scholo from 45-58 when leveling alts.

With all the changes why were no horde quests added to Stockades?
