Blizzard has detailed its ambitious new dungeon system for World of Warcraft and launched the Race Change service.

The dungeon system, arriving in an upcoming patch, replaces the Looking For Group feature with a Dungeon button. Key features include added rewards for PUGs (pick-up groups), teleports directly inside and out of an instance anywhere in the world, and being able to fill groups with players from other servers.

A full description of Dungeon System updates can be found on the World of Warcraft community site.

The Race Change service, available now, lets characters change race, name and appearance for Ł15/€20. This is a one-time use, so changing back requires forking out again.

"Details are not available at this time" as to whether players can use this system to change to one of the new Cataclysm expansion races.

All characters over level 10 are eligible, and Blizzard will hold your original name for 90 days should you wish to revert. Changing your name is not mandatory.

The full Race Change FAQ can be found on the World of Warcraft website.
