Elite area

From Wowpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Elite areas (aka non-instanced dungeons, micro dungeons, and half dungeons) are areas in a non-instanced zone full of elite creatures. These usually require a group to complete and are often the focus of group quests.

As of Patch 2.3 most of these areas are no longer filled with elite creatures, but rather with normal mobs.

With the current rarity of elite mobs, the terms mentioned above could be used to refer to any non-instanced questing area that is separated from its surroundings (caves, crypts, buildings, etc). In Mists of Pandaria, many areas like this with a distinct interior were given maps. See Micro dungeon maps.

Current non-instanced dungeons include, by zone:
