Thanquol's Incursion Video

Last night was the first PTS session to test Warhammer Online's new RvR dungeon, Thanquol's Incursion.  Sadly, the test was cut short due to a bug, but that is what the PTS is for.  I was lucky enough to make it into an instance.  Continue on for the video.

It was an interesting experience, since no one had ever done it before.  We eventually figured out what was going on and the mayhem began.  The video shows one of the three bosses, Skeekt the Warlock Engineer.  Here's a quick tip.... if something is on the ground you probably do not want to stand in it.

Since this was a test, I'm not sure the graphics were all enabled.  Otherwise it looked ok, I'd love to see them make Skeetk a bit bigger just so it's easier to see what's going on.

Another fun part of the night was using the bosses power, like the aforementioned red goo.  I saw a few slows being cast on it and players trying to punt each other into it.  Other than that, the bosses other attacks did not really stand out.  For a test, it was fun.  Bugs were found so it was a success too.

The next test is scheduled for 3pm EDT on Friday.

As a bonus, here is a picture of Throt the Unclean.  Not seen is the Rat Ogre that stomped me.
