Onyxia Raid in 3.2

My World of Warcraft account is inactive, but this news makes me want back in!

This permanent update to Onyxia will convert the dungeon into 10- and 25-player modes. We will be adding new items to Onyxia’s loot table that have the same model as some of the classic loot from this dungeon, like Tier 2 helms, with stats updated to match the current level of content. There will be a special new item too: a normal drake-sized 310% speed flying mount modeled after Onyxia herself called an Onyxia Broodling. We will also be updating the encounter mechanics to be more fitting for modern raiding, but we can guarantee players will get to experience the frightening horror of deep breaths once again.

Then for a limited time, after the 5-year anniversary event officially begins in November, anybody who logs in will receive an Onyxia Brood Whelpling pet.

Really cool. Onyxia is a great looking dragon. I’m assuming the 310% speed mount will be from an achievement.

Time to bone up on strategy.

Update: A Q&A MMO Champion reprints says the mount will be a rare drop. They also have photos of the new stuff.
