WWI 2008 Panel - New Dungeons Revealed

    I just finished watching the Dungeons and Raids panel at the World Wide Invitational in Paris. Blizzard has just given us a sneak peek of 3 new dungeons that hadn't been revealed yet. The theme seemed to be dungeons that have an epic scale to them, something that seemed huge, but not annoying that you needed a mount to get from point A to point B.
    I'll go into the 3 dungeons here, but please check back sometime next week for the full video of the panel here in Stratics.
    The Occulus
    The Occulus is a level 80 dungeon that looks like a group of 3 floating rings. The Occulus is unique as it will be the first dungeon with flying mount vehicles that you can use for flight combat.
    Halls of Stone
    Halls of Stone is a level 77-79 dungeon that is located in Storm Peaks. It is one of 3 dungeons in the area - one being a level 80 dungeon called Halls of Lightning and the other being a yet to be announced dungeon. You will need a flying mount in order to access the Halls of Stone.
    This new dungeon is going along with a new theme they're doing in Wrath of the Lich King as a nonlinear dungeon. This particular dungeon focuses on Titan lore and continues on the storyline from Uldaman. Some of the creatures you can expect to find within are Iron Dwarves and some very large/giant creatures. From the screenshots shown it seemed almost 4-5 times the size of the players, maybe more. The other thing noted was that all of the dungeons will have new custom creature art for the bosses instead of re-using existing art.
    CoT: The Culling of Stratholme
    When CoT: The Culling of Stratholme was announced the entire audience erupted in applause. We are going to be going back in time and actually are able to fight along side Arthas during the story of The Culling which many should remember from playing Warcraft 3. This dungeon is located in Tanaris at the Caverns of Time and something to note is the devs are planning on making the Cavern easier to get to. One of the NPCs can take you there already but you need faction rep in order to do so, they will be removing this.
    The Culling of Stratholme will be a level 80 dungeon and it is a fully scripted experience from the same veinas Hillsbra. The Culling of Stratholme will also continue the storyline of the infinete Dragonflight series from Burning Crusade.
    The most exciting and interesting thing I heard about this new dungeon is they are using the same voice actors that were used in Warcraft 3 for the same characters. You will literally be immersed in the same scenario that was experienced in Warcraft 3.
