OMG Wailing Caverns

Wailing Caverns is designed to be a low level Horde instance (15-25). In the big picture view it’s the second instance that Horde players visit, after hacking and slashing their way through Ragefire Chasm. Wailing Caverns is technically tucked under some rocks in The Barrens but thanks to the Dungeon Finder it’s just one button away. Map and directions included.

Revisiting Blackrock Depths: Prison

When the Dungeon Finder was released Blackrock Depths was one of those ridiculously long dungeons that became split up into more manageable pieces. Unfortunately, someone decided that the best way to chunk down an instance that spans 12 character levels (48 – 60) and includes 20 bosses was to split the zone into two parts: Prison, covering 1 boss, and Upper City, presumably covering the other 19 bosses. Makes no sense to me either. But we’ll work with what we’re given.

Revisiting Sunken Temple

Sunken Temple is evil. I’m convinced the designers enjoyed creating a maze that sends you off in spiraling staircases every which way. Only Sunken Temple would present you with a dilemma the moment you zone it – 4 doorways: which do you take?

Revisiting Maraudon: Pristine Waters

This guide will take you on a loop that kills all four bosses but you’re going to get your satchel midway. To kill Princess T (the “final” boss) last would require a heck of a lot of extra clearing and backtracking. This run is much shorter, but you may need to convince your party to stick around for the second half.

Revisiting Maraudon: Orange Crystals

The Orange Crystal run will be the second part of Maraudon that you visit using the Dungeon Finder. This time around we’re killing evil plants. And slugs.

Revisting Maraudon: Purple Crystals

The Purple Crystal run, containing the lowest level enemies and thus first in the series, will start you in a blue shadowed area called The Wicked Grotto. I hope you’re ready to kill some imps and demons!

Revisting Uldaman

One of the nicest surprises the Dungeon Finder has given me has been Uldaman. Not the Uldaman of my past, but Uldaman without all the crap. Uldaman for fun and XP. Uldaman has a bad reputation, but most of it doesn’t really apply anymore.

Breaking Down Gnomeregan

My basic map of Gnomeregan is intended for players who get handed Gnomeregan when they queue for a classic dungeon. I’ll do my best to help you out with the quests later on in the guide.

Revisiting Razorfen Kraul

If you choose to skip the optional first boss (which we did, by mistake) and don’t do the escort at the end of the instance, Razorfen Kraul is a pretty quick instance. It also looks a heck of a lot more complicated to navigate than it actually is. It’s all fairly flat, but the winding branches obscure the path when you look at the mini map.

Revisting Blackfathom Deeps

I’ve queued the Random Classic Dungeon for my little baby Mage (currently level 25) a few times over the last couple of days. I’ve been sent to Stockades the most frequently, and these runs are usually quite successful. But when I was dropped into Blackfathom Deeps it was… an experience.
