There will also be a 40-player Raid Finder version of Molten Core for level 100 players with a Core Hound mount and a Raid Finder-quality helm up for grabs.

A new special battleground will also be running that attempts to recreate the feel of the neverending to and fro between Southshore and Tarren Mill from the early days of WoW. The battleground is playable within two level brackets: 90-99 and 100. Alliance winners will be granted the Tarren Mill Terror title while Horde PVP champs will earn the epithet of Southshore Slayer
