Day 6 – Favourite dungeon and why?
First off, sorry this is a tad late. Scratch that, I’m not at all sorry! I’m enjoying this little blog project immensely, but the Shattering happened and then we had nice pizzas and watched a movie. You understand. And this will run over into the Cataclysm release, in which time it will be pushed back further, but don’t worry, I’ma finish.
SLabs (as we lovingly call it) was probably the first level 70 instance I did all the way through. I remember how terrified I was of Murmur (shutup, like you weren’t) and how difficult we found it. The heroic version was just tough enough, and I loved it. Not entirely sure why, I just did. I suppose fond memories or some such lark.
Black Temple was the raid I progressed in with my TBC guild, Supreme. I can remember having a lot of fun, people being stupid and all that, and the bosses were complicated and fun. There was such a high sense of accomplishment every time we killed a boss, the only thing I regretted was missing the first Illidan kill – my internet was off for about a month at that time. However, I did kill Illidan plenty of times and loved the fight.
Ulduar, I felt, was possibly the perfect instance for people who wanted fun hardmode encounters and of course, us achievement whores. There were plenty of different ways to activate hardmodes and I loved that because it gave the raid a nice varied feel to it. And sooo many achievements which I still need to go back and do. It was brilliant!
Caverns of Time: Durnholde I think I loved so much because you walk in and oh! Look! My Blood Elf is a human, haha look how stupid the cow looks as a human haha. And you got to fight with Thrall. Yay! It wasn’t until Wrath when I levelled my Death Knight that I discovered that some Alliance races, not including humans because honestly derp, didn’t change. I was quite disappointed, that was always the best bit of Caverns of Time for me – seeing what the hell your character would look like if it was human. So yeah, that one.
