Now that the Queen update has been deployed to the Staging Server, we are curious to see you play through Elite Dungeons and reward you for it! To find our how to participate, please see the FAQ below.
WHAT IS AN ELITE DUNGEON?
These are Randomized Dungeons, which feature Avalonian mobs and bosses and are intended for a group of 10-20 players. In addition to the highest-value loot in the game, the final areas of these dungeons contain shrines that offer a week-long PvE Fame increase. Players can now obtain artifacts and shards from defeated Avalonian mobs which can be crafted into three different sets (cloth/leather/plate) of powerful Avalonian Artifact Armor.
WHERE DO I FIND AN ELITE DUNGEON?
Elite Randomized Dungeons spawn in all T6-T8 Outlands zones. They can also be spawned by using Dungeon Maps.
HOW DO I PARTICIPATE IN THIS EVENT?
Get a group of up to 19 friends together (max 20 players per group) and log into the Staging Server. Fort Sterling, Lymhurst, Bridgewatch, Martlock, Thetford now have a free crafting forge in the center, where you can create Tier 8 gear sets for free. Alongside this, you will also find stones, which grant you Destiny Board unlocks and Elite Dungeon Maps. Use the Elite Dungeon Map anywhere in Outlands to reveal a hidden Elite Dungeon entrance. The time will start counting from when the first mob in the dungeon is hit, until the last player in your group receives the Grail Buff at the very end of the dungeon. All mobs and bosses in the dungeon must be killed. Getting assistance from other groups in your dungeon run is not allowed. Record video footage of your Elite Dungeon run and submit it in this thread in form of a YouTube link to qualify.
Any edits or cuts in the video will disqualify your entry.
This footage will also be studied by our Game Designers in order to improve Elite Dungeon mobs - so by participating, not only can you win rewards but you also help us balance the game!
WHAT ARE THE REWARDS?
- Each player in the group with the best time will receive 3 Months of Premium Status
- Every single submitted video will grant you a ticket. Tickets are per player; meaning several players from the same group can send videos recorded from their perspective and qualify for tickets. At the end of the event, we will do 20 random draws - the more tickets you collect, the higher the chance of winning will be. Each of the 20 random draw winners will receive 3750 Gold.
WHEN DOES THIS EVENT END?
Elite Dungeon Speedrun Event lasts until Tuesday, December 17th 10:00 UTC. Videos may be submitted until Wednesday, December 18th 10:00 UTC.
Best of luck and may the best group win!

Test server (Staging) can be selected under the server drop-down menu in the launcher.
Test Server is primarily to test new content. That also means that the available version can be unstable.
Please note that you cannot verify your device by connecting to the Test server. The database from the live server is copied every few weeks to the test server, so the only way for your device to be verified on the Test server is if you are verified on the Live server at the time the database transfer was made. I'm afraid all you can do is wait a few weeks until the next database transfer is performed.
