Tears of Veeshan includes nine new Instances which are available in both Advanced Solo and Heroic versions. The new solo/heroic zones are all accessible from the Vesspyr Isles (which are another realm of the Ethernere, sharing vestiges of the Tenebrous Tangle).

  • The Nexus Core
  • The Fractured Hive
  • High Keep
  • High Keep: The Pickclaw Depths
  • Stratum of the Protectors
  • Ssrez’Ras: Chamber of Stasis
  • Temple of Veeshan: Laboratory of Mutation
  • Temple of Veeshan: Halls of the Betrayer
  • Temple of Veeshan: Vulak’Aerr’s Dominion

NOTE: The difficulty markers above are my estimates, not from a developer.

A Rewarding Experience

Each of the nine heroic zones have daily (18 hour) missions which reward 3 Etmya which are the new tokens in this expansion. There is also a daily heroic mission to a random zone which awards additional Etmya, and there’s a weekly heroic mission which requires completing two non-Temple of Veeshan heroic zones and awards 15 Etmya. As for coin, there are repeatable item gathering quests which can be picked up within each heroic zone that award Plat.

Each heroic zone has at least five bosses, with Tier 1 heroic armor as well as some Rare Fabled items dropping off the main boss of each zone, while the subbosses drop at least one item from the Advanced Solo zones, plus some lesser jewelry. Temple of Veeshan are the tougher heroic zones and will drop Tier 2 heroic armor and even nicer items. As with Siren’s Grotto, some of the best-in-slot items drop from the heroic zones.
