Испытания в подземельях: общая информация, советы, подсказки

Challenge mode in dungeons has been introduced with the release of Mists of Pandaria. It allows players not only have fun and assay their strength but also earn a lot of achievements and get interesting rewards.

In this article we will have a talk about what the challenge mode is, about the rewards for completing all the challenges and give some pieces of advice about the passing of the dungeons.

General information

Challenge Modes are timed instance runs in which there are special conditions.Your gear is scaled down to ilvl 463. This ensures that running these instances will be challenging even in later tiers.

There are three tiers of rewards: Gold, Silver, and Bronze, which are obtained based on how quickly you complete the challenge.

All nine new dungeons added in Mists of Pandaria have challenge mode versions. The time required for awards is different for each of them. We've listed the qualifying Gold, Silver, and Bronze times below:

Gate of the Setting Sun: 13:00; 22:00; 45:00

Temple of the Jade Serpent: 15:00; 25:00; 45:00

Hints and advice

It’s not a secret that there are a variety of items that are useless from the first sight or have some limited potential of usage. However, these items can be irreplaceable during completing of the dungeon challenges.

Amount of HP – one of the most important criteria for successful completing of the challenges. If there is no warlock, priest or warrior in your group who could give a stamina buff, http://www.wowhead.com/item=79257 will be very helpful. They are created by inscribers and may be used by any player.

If there is no monk, paladin or druid in your group you will need http://www.wowhead.com/item=49633 to increase your characteristics. They are created by skinners with the skill no less than 450 and can be used by any player.

To increase the group mobility, http://www.wowhead.com/item=29530 will be helpful. Since the main requirement to completion of the challenges is a speed, you have to move fast to save precious seconds. http://www.wowhead.com/spell=55016, should be mentioned here as well which can be equipped by engineers to theirs belts.

In every dungeon there are bug packs of monsters. The killing of them takes a lot of time. That’s why you have to avoid such groups of mobs. If you have rogue in your group, theirs http://www.wowhead.com/spell=114018 will help you. There are also http://www.wowhead.com/item=9172 and http://www.wowhead.com/item=3823, but because of 10min cd they can be used only once per dungeon run. http://www.wowhead.com/spell=84424 – *** is another way to avoid a pack of monsters.


As it was mentioned earlier, there are three tiers of rewards: gold, silver and bronze.

For completion of http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=6374 you will receive title http://www.wowhead.com/title=314.

If you complete http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=6375, http://www.wowhead.com/item=90045 will be mailed to you which is used to redeem one of the following mounts from http://www.wowhead.com/npc=66973.

And finally, the rewards for http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=6378. First of all, a full eight-piece set of epic transmoggable gear with unique visual procs when casting certain spells. This gear is initially mailed upon completion of the achievement--if you've lost it, you can buy it back from http://www.wowhead.com/npc=63994 (The Horde) или http://www.wowhead.com/npc=64028 (The Alliance).

When getting the Gold achievement for completing a particular instance, you will get a teleport spell to that dungeon. All teleport spells are on a shared 8 hour cooldown and reset when a Challenge Mode has been successfully completed.

We hope, this article helped you to learn something new. Enjoy playing and successful challenges completing!
