Challenge mode dungeons aren't for the feint of heart. They bring regular Heroic dungeons to a whole new level for all types of players. Consisting of a list of required trash to kill and every boss needing to be killed for the dungeons respectful achievement.

Gold, silver and bronze timers all give a different level of competition due to their time requirements for each level. Bronze gives a broad level of entry just to give people an introduction of what to expect. Going hand in hand with this is silver level dungeons bringing up the requirement for casuals to a new level requiring players to step of their level of gameplay. Bringing us to the final level of gold where the timers for some dungeons can be tight. At this gold level players will begin to find ways to make pulls faster and min/maxing every aspect of the classes they bring to the dungeon and similar with the mechanics. Players will be looking to bring dps potions and flasks to burn their enemies down faster. While also strategically using invisibility potions to bypass unnecessary trash. However, this can be risky considering your dps has ot be strong enough to kill bosses fast enough when an invis pot puts all pots on a 10m cd...no more dps pots.
