Bored at work, thought I would throw this out there. Out of all the dungeons in all the x-pacs including this one, which are your top 5 hated?

mine:
1. Wailing Caverns
2. Stonecore
3. Steamvault
4. Shdo-Pan Monestary
5. Halls of Stone

UBRS/LBRS/BRD - I still get lost all the damn time in those places, and I specifically do not dungeon queue when they're available.

Ramps - wish Outland leveling didn't blow so many goats, and that you didn't have to do this dungeon for 4 levels. Also everything in there disarms and fuck that.

Pre-dragon removal Oculus - because spamming 1 is compelling gameplay and oh god can't you not pull 10 more dragons? Note: nowadays I think Ocu is a perfectly fine dungeon because I do not mind the non dragon trash or even Ley Guardian, and you can get away with pulling like 1 dragon per platform.

New Scarlet Monastery - the dungeon is fine but people are seemingly incapable of not backing into extra packs. I can pull that place very efficiently now, but I need people to stay behind the tank and get out of the middle of the gorram road where all the other packs are wandering but nooo my markings aren't clear enough or something. Seriously do people play zoomed in or something?

My hatred for monastery is exacerbated by having to run it 40 times to get my tank helm. If i see that fucking polearm again I am going to go postal.

The only new dungeon I loath is that stormstout brewery, and ONLY because of that awful last boss Jin-Zhu the uncasked or whatever. That is a long, annoying, and pointless boss fight.

It is a ballet. If you cant dance then leave group. Unfortunately for those of us who can dance, it is boring. When stuck in a group of asshats, it can be insanely challenging.

Stand in the fermentation beams, and kill adds.

OR hope you don't get Ferment. Then the fight is easy.

The fight sucks. Even if you do it perfectly.

Just like the first boss in Temple of the Jade Serpent.

That fight is dumb and pointless...kill 4 waves of stupid adds, then run around in a circle jumping over puddles while trying to stand still long enough to cast every now and then...no thanks.

I like Wise Mari. The adds are dull and pointless, but being able to pewpew effectively while jumping is a fun personal challenge.

Getting that achievement on the other hand ... oigh.

Also I don't play a spriest so I think I'd be right pissed if that were the case. Shaman, Warlock, Warrior? no problemo

Lol, Scorch and Frost Bomb alone don't pay the bills, my friend.

Clever use of Alter Time and Blink help out a lot though.

And that is why that fight should be fun. You get to do stupid things.

Like disengage into the wall with Posthaste just to run faster! (note: doesn't matter, I just left fox on but I love Posthaste)

(I also love Blazing Speed on my mage)

(Fight me)

I don't like the tightness of the room the guy is in...I hate when my camera gets all jacked up. I do like the big ass bug encounter in that one heroic though.

Raigonn.

I want to do him as a non-tank.

I get to sit on the ground and watch adds bug out (lolpunlol) and not spawn so that I get the easiest dungeon achievement ever (don't kill any adds before you kill the boss)

They need to fix the cannons.

Maybe make them catch fire.

I dunno about that...I got some dungeon achievement the other day while I was flying to The Silken Fields to make my daily Imperial Silk.

Top 5 huh?

1. Shdo-Pan (last boss is a pain even when you are downing the orbs)
2. Deadmines (Frogger fail)
3. AQ40 (Viscidus - I play an Elemental Shammy and it's a lame fight for me)
4. Maraudon Pre-changes (Get lost everytime)
5. Gnomeregan Pre-changes (Lost again)

I really don't care for any of the dungeons where you get lost as the norm. Loved Kara and the new Naxx (never did old)

Hay I wonder would it be possible to go into HoR at 90 and kill LK instead of running from him?

And now you've reminded me about HoR, curse that dungeon.

WTF a strat where everyone has to hide is a spot that's barely anything.

most of mine are older ones, brd just cause its long as fuck and we have been doing that dungeon forever, Strath, again long doesnt matter what entrance either. that place needs a rework imo. BFD they should remove that entirely from the game imo, it literally serves no purpose, the little bit of tie in to the area could be summed up in a quest or two with a lvl apropriate blue, who remembers the tower of Athalax quest chain, huh, com'on you know you do. and i agree with the ramps being annoying.

Shado-pan monastery with no ranged DPS.

Any dungeon I'm tanking where people run away from me when they have adds stuck to them. Unless you can outrun them, they're going to hit you anyways. So you might as well come stand next to me so I can pull them off. Siege of Niuzao temple, next to last fight comes to mind.

When I have adds on me I make a circle around the tank or blink back and forth through the tank.
