Botanica - 4
Shattered Halls - 4
Mana Tombs - 4

I rate them 4 because they don't go as fast if you aren't overgeared.

5 badges and can do it rather quickly if you just aoe everything.

I usually run (when I'm free) Mech SH Bot and MT for 19 badges in about 5 hours (allowing for breaks and slacking).

SH and Mech are the only 2 instances I ever bother with for badge farming (in that preference order). The first boss of Mana Tombs is fast, but that's only 1 badge.

The instance gets 1 point for every badge in it. They are further micro ranked by the time invested.
In order

SH - 5
Mech - 5
Botanica - 5
Underbog - 4
Arcaraz - 4

The rest I don't bother with honestly.

Wow, everyone rating SH very high. I tried it the other day and it was going along well until we got to the two head ogre boss. Could not down him. He would switch targets and two shot my clothies.

I find it works better when you beat into the clothies' heads that you can't taunt the boss off. When the understand that they need to do everything they can to survive, it goes a lot better.

Most of my issues with that boss (on normal or heroic) is that a mage or something just stands there and takes the beatings and then yells at me for losing aggro. But if people stay at max range and blink, shield, whatever, he'll usually switch targets before he kills someone.

Love Mech pretty much above all... if you have a mage and lock it's really lame easymode, 5 badges in 1 hour ftw. :)
Now if that bastard would just drop the &##¤ sword :O

I'm too lazy to rate them all, but SH is easily my favorite heroic for badges. For the ogre boss, wear threat gear and save your trinkets/cooldowns for when he changes targets, then blow them and pull him back onto you. Also, pound the significance of the "continuing dps while O'mrogg is on you = FAIL" equation into the heads of your cloth-wearers. BoP can also help.

The Mechanar is also fairly efficient, but I absolutely hate the place from running it so much. As someone noted in another thread, it's getting nerfed to 4 badges instead of 5 in the next patch, so it won't be quite as good anyway.

Aside from those two, maybe Underbog or even BM with a shadow priest. Both are fairly quick.

Please note that Mech is getting the big nerf hammer next patch sicne the mini-bosses will no longer drop badges (only the cache of the legion will have a badge inside).

Therefore I vote for Kara/ZA as best badge farming instance.
