Instance Guides: A reference

Postby 2ndNin » Thu Nov 20, 2008 8:48 am

Since stickying 12 instances and 12 heroics seems pointless, going to make a thread to cover a list of all the guide threads that get put up to give people somewhere central to refer to.

Starred instances are current works in progress, they will be updated from the comments in that post, and by me (such as boss names and exact healths since I missed these on a few).

Please keep this thread clean, post comments and guides in the appropriate thread or start a guide thread if you are willing to maintain it.

Heroic Instances:
Borean Tundra
*The Nexus: http://www.failsafedesign.com/maintankadin/viewtopic.php?t=17112
*The Oculus: http://maintankadin.failsafedesign.com/viewtopic.php?t=17144

Grizzly Hills
*Drak'Theron Keep: http://www.failsafedesign.com/maintankadin/viewtopic.php?p=300200#300200

Storm Peaks
*Halls of Lightning: http://maintankadin.failsafedesign.com/viewtopic.php?t=17156
*Halls of Stone:

Howling Fjord
*Utgarde Keep:
*Utgarde Pinnacle:

Zul'drak
*Gundrak:

Dragonblight:
*Azjol'Nerub:
*Ahnkahet, The Old Kingdom:

Tanaris
*COT: Stratholme: http://maintankadin.failsafedesign.com/viewtopic.php?t=17171

Dalaran
*Violet Hold: http://maintankadin.failsafedesign.com/viewtopic.php?t=17290

Normal Instances:

In terms of difficulty ranking the following is probably a good guide:

02 - The Oculus - Requires group that knows boss strategies
03 - Drak'Theron Keep - Optional boss is harder
03 - The Nexus
03 - Utgarde Keep
04 - COT: Stratholme
06 - Gundrak - First boss is the hardest
06 - Halls of Lightning
06 - Utgarde Pinnacle - Skadi can cause many wipes
09 - Azjol'Nerub - many groups bounce off first "boss" pulls


Ahnkahet, The Old Kingdom - not run yet
Halls of Stone - not run yet

Well, if we going to write the 24 guides, might as well have someone able to refer to them. and means we don't have to keep bumping the threads up.

Good job.

I like things being clean, glad you took the initiative. I'll be watching this to fill up for a sticky.

the good news is that the def trinket AND the tank meta dropped for me on my first run, so the RNG has love for me at least sometimes...

The bosses have extra goodies on heroic sometimes. The last boss does an Arc Lightning in addition. I spent 3.5 hours in there cycling through bad players to get a group competent to down Loken.

HAHA, he's probably the toughest heroic boss. Off the top of my head I think he's the only one who took a few tries in beta. He's one of those where your entire group has to be alert or it's probably a wipe. I actually like the instance though.

If anyone wants to start writing up some guides please do so, am happy to keep running them and putting stuff up but would love people to look over what I write at least and give other insights.

At the moment, since I skipped 90% of the dungeons levelling I am going in blind, so any tricks I pull up are wowwiki (which is typically terrible at the moment) or stuff I see in the fights and put together, there may be far better ways but its what worked with the group I was with at the time.

Stickied and modified the title slightly for proper representation.

Once again, please write any guides as seperate threads, following the examples in the Announcement.

Danke!

For most instances I go with the mentality of pull, tank and spank, don't stand in sh*t. Seems to work 95% of the time :P

For the difficulty rating thing, does it go "low number = easiest, high number = hardest"? Or is it the other way around?
