Instance Guide

In most areas of World of Warcraft there is something that is called instance. The peculiarity of these areas is that they are unique for each group entering. I mean, if there are two groups together in the same dungeon, each one will not cross to the other; they will have their own monsters and live their own history. The entrance of an instance can be spotted by the presence of a swirling blue portal for instances of groups or red for raids.

When a player dies in one of these dungeons, if someone in your group can revive him, he returns to life at the entrance of the dungeon at the risk of seeing you facing the reappeared monsters. In addition, a warlock can’t teleport a player in the instance; he must therefore leave it to be able to invoke the player.

Generally, in a dungeon, monsters reappear very slowly, which is useful when the whole group dies for having improperly evaluated a boss. You might also be aware that if the group is staying for more than twenty minutes outside of the dungeon it will be seen all the monsters that will reappear in it.

Finally, as stated earlier in this Wow Instance Guide, there are two kinds of instances, those of groups and those of raids. The first must be done by groups of five players and the other by raids of 40 players maximum. It goes without saying that these are extremely hard to finish and that even in the case of the famous “Onyxia’s Nest”, the groups being able to see the end shall be counted on the fingers of one hand to this day.

Warning: For those wishing to discover the game by themselves I would advise you to leave this Wow Instance Guide more quickly because it has for goal to reference all the instances of the game, the recommended level to browse them in the best possible conditions and the type of enemies you will find. Also note that “Horde” players can enter into an instance of the Alliance, but they will not be able to perform any mission.
