"You cannot reset an instance more than five times per hour, in order to prevent players from farming trash mobs without having to kill any bosses."Not correct, Blizzard has stated the 5 resets/hour was to curb repeated farming of bosses and/or nodes and/or chests, not trash mobs."Running instances in heroic mode becomes an option beyond level 60."Not correct, level 70 is when heroics become available."If you are inside a heroic instance when it resets, you'll be teleported to your Hearthstone's home. "Not correct, you go to the nearest graveyard."Heroics, for example, reset 12 hours after the first boss has been killed"Not correct, non-boss mobs start respawning 2 hours after they are killed. The entire instance itself resets whenever server local time is 11:00am, that can be anywhere from ~23.5 (24 hours minus however long it takes to get through instance) hours to 1 second after the last boss is killed. Not sure where this 12 hour timer is coming from.

Additional..."The timers are reset automatically every day at 11 a.m. server time on U.S. servers and 8 a.m. server time on European servers."Not exactly correct. I believe the US servers are by time zone as the reset is 9am Pacific which would make it 11am Central.

@Killrah"Running instances in heroic mode becomes an option beyond level 60.""Not correct, level 70 is when heroics become available."That's still not correct... You can get into TBC heroics at 60 if you have the rep. I've been in Heroic Ramps at 63.http://www.wowwiki.com/Instances_by_level
