A new fly-through video has surfaced on MMO-Champion for the Heart of Fear.
This is one of three new raids coming to World of Warcraft in the Mists of Pandaria expansion. Heart of Fear will take place at the seat of the Mantid dominion, where you will ultimately fight against the Queen of the Mantid, who is possessed by the Sha of Fear.
Watching the fly-through video will give you an immediate Silithid vibe as tiny fireflies swarm around central shafts of light and structural pillars, which are encrusted with emerald and amber. As you push deeper into the Mantid domain you begin to slowly witness the Sha of Anger’s grasp on the kingdom until you are overwhelmed by the negative energy culminating in the Queen’s final chamber.
Judging by the raid maps and the visual scale, it is safe to say it will most likely have a decent balance of trash that is offset by closely arranged boss encounters. This is a new trend that has been growing since Wrath of the Lich King in order to keep long hallway crawls to a minimum.
It’s a large instance with 6 encounters that could very well rival most of the content we saw in Cataclysm.
