It’s the time of year to look back and do lists of the good, the bad and the puggy. So here’s a quick thought on my favourite instance as triggered by today’s WoW Insider article.
While I didn’t start in Wrath it’s the first expansion where I was there for the start and not level at the back of the curve constantly trying to catch up. As a guild we never really looked inside much of the TBC, however we go
TBC – The Steamvaults : Which I have a soft spot for in a “damn that hurt, but we got him” way. It took us ages to get the end boss in there nailed.
Wrath – The Old Kingdom : It’s long, it’s painful, the “Room of Many Wipes” was a hell of a challenge before the “great nerf of 2010” but from a tanking persepective it’s a bloody interesting instance to handle. Lots of awareness needed, good pulls, hell even CC is a benefit at level.
Cataclysm – Vortex Pinnacle : This currently has my seal of approval, the look of the instance is wonderful. Blizz have outdone themselves. The trash hurts and needs planning, the mechanics make for interesting fights and then there’s the windy dragon on heroic. Possibly my favourite boss at the moment to tank.
