This custom dungeon is now open in regular and heroic modes. This guide will walk you through the mechanics, bosses, loot and achievements you can earn.
Table of Content

You can access the new instance from the Random Dungeon Finder on regular or heroic mode for level 80 players. If you prefer to walk in, like a gentlemen, you can find the entrance in the Argent Tournament area of Icecrown. Upon entering the trial you will be greeted with a single boss wandering inside an arena. This single boss is Argent Confessor Paletress. When you approach her or she approaches you, whichever comes first, the battle on. Do your best to interrupt and dispel and heals she casts. When she summons a memory with Summon Memory, focus it down quickly and interrupt anything it casts.

When she dies the next combatant will spawn, Colosos. Colosos is a straight forward fight, just be sure to remove Hex of Mending before accepting any heals from your healer.

When Colosos dies you will be faced with yet another challenger, Ambrose Boltspark. A gnome mage from Gnomeregan. Be careful with this master mage, he casts quickly and often. Avoid his fireball and his blast spell and you should be fine.

Once you kill Ambrose another challenger comes forward, Eadric the Pure. Eadric is a grandmast human paladin with the ability to quickly wipe an entire group. Be sure to face away from him at the end of his Radiance cast to avoid becoming disoriented. Dispel the Hammer of Justice on whoever gets stunned; this allows them to catch Hammer of the Righteous and throw it back at Eadric, dealing high damage.

After Eadric goes down your last and final boss will enter the arena, The Black Knight. Do your best to remove both Diseases whenever they get applied to reduce the damage from Obliterate. After you master his timing it becomes just a DPS race to kill the boss before the stacks from Death's Bite overwhelm the party.

When The Black Knight dies you can now loot his corpse. If this is your first time completing the dungeon you will also unlock an achievement. There is one for regular and one for heroic.
Trial of the Champion can be found in Icecrown and will be released as part of a later phase in Wrath of the Lich King Classic. The recommended level range to run this dungeon on Normal is 78-80. Heroic mode will require Level 80 to enter.

The Classic Trial of Wrath dungeon can be found at the far North corner of Icecrown. The dungeon entrance itself is on the North side of the Crusaders' Coliseum structure in the middle of the Argent Tournament grounds. There is a summoning stone on the Eastern side of this large building.

You can also access this dungeon using your dungeon finder.
