Wow, I'm glad that they are adding heroic versions of Deadmines, Shadowfang Keep, Dire Maul, Stratholme and Scholomance. The higher level instances (DM, Strat and Scholo) were so fun to do at level 60 in vanilla WoW. It was challenging and best of all, the dungeon was large and not linear, straightforward and boring after the first 5 times like some dungeons in WotLK. I certainly hope that they would invent some story and background info regarding why players have to go back to these instances.I guess for Deadmines, it has something to do with that Catclysm daily screenshot where part of Westfall is blown skyhigh by the Cataclysm. Maybe the instance is filled with Twilight's Hammer cultists and elementals?For Shadowfang Keep, something to do with the Worgen perhaps? Maybe Arugal refuses to go on that one-way trip to the Twisting Nether and is back again, seeking to the vengeance? Maybe he's enslaving or kidnapping local Gilnean citizens and undoing their cure for Worgen curse and turn them back into full-fledged worgen to serve him and, I don't know... take over the world?Have completely no idea for Dire Maul.For Scholomance, maybe the remaining Death Knights, Liches and cultists of the Cult of the Damned are trying to spread their propaganda to attract more members to restart the Scourge? They could be hindering the efforts of cleansing the Plaguelands or developing some sort of new brainwashing drug that works not only on living things but, also on the Forsaken, in a bid to increase the number of undead under their control.Maybe Stratholome could have the same story with Scholomance. Don't think the Scarlet Crusade/Onslaught are still holed up in there. Any survivors are probably long gone and the rest are stranded on Northrend.One thing I hope they will do with these instances is create new bosses revelant to the story and not the Naxx problem: Naxxramas has moved to Northrend and Kel'thuzad is restored to power. Fine. But, hey! Every boss has been ressed as well and are exactly the same. What?! Doesn't make sense as they don't have a phylactery like KT.
