Nope, not a joke.

She has lurked in her lair and done battle with the many brave adventurers who travelled to that familiar location over the years. Now, in honor of the World of Warcraft 5-year anniversary, the dreaded brood mother Onyxia is being revamped to make a return to the forefront of Azeroth, as part of our big plans for the upcoming 3.2.2 content patch.

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.

We’re very excited to bring this classic encounter back to provide a fun new experience for both new and veteran players. Further details will be available in the near future, and we will be setting up the Public Test Realms soon to help test out this fight along with all the new content we have planned for the patch. Keep an eye on the forums for updates!


Woot! Now, to make it truly epic, make everyone get a key again, LOL!

This is probably a disappointment to those planning to do the level 60 content with XP turned off...

I didn't see that it was a permanent change when I read it last night on WoW.com. If that's true, they should make it so you COULD run the old Ony too at 60.

Quick, now's your last chance to solo Onyxia!
Never mess with the Trolls, mon!

Nothing is a greater tragedy than a life untested.

I just went and solo'd her with my pally the other day. Died once when I forgot to get out of the deep breath. Other than that, it was fairly easy. 58g and a metric ton of level loot. No pally helm for me :(
