What is your favorite dungeon, and why?

I didn't make a poll, because I don't know them all. :sumo:

Wailing Caverns - My first instance. Just loved it.

Zul'Farrak - <3 your mounts and rootings =D

I haven't been to them all yet, but so far I like ZF for the druidic goodness of being outside, Maraudon for appearance and variety of environs, and Deadmines because I always loved the Goonies!

I'd have to agree, Maraudon is great as far as appearance goes. And you have both sides that vary. I did Dire Maul for the first time and loved it. This is a really tough question because they are good for different reasons. Appearance, loots, difficulty. I think if I had to choose one it would be MARAUDON. and this is mainly due the combination of all three of the above reasons. DId Onyxia for the first time about a week ago and that was eye candy. But it's not really a dungeon.

Scarlet Monastery, 4 wings and all of them can be done quickly.

SM. Always has been my favorite, likely always will be.

My least favorite would likely be LBRS, especially the spider area.

Favorites: Scarlet Monastery and Zul'Farrak
SM for the Variety and ZF because I can use Roots/Nature's Grasp

Most Hated: Gnomeregan
Long, and I hate those stupid alarms!

I love SM. I always look forward to running new guildies through there <3

Always hated Gnomer and Ulda.

I have grown very fond of LBRS, but I HATE it with a crappy group. With a good group, 5 or 10 man it is a GREAT instance, with a bad group ( regardless of size ) the instance is PURE HELL.

I would have to say the entirety of DM. I love chasing the imp, and finally fighting it while it becomes hugemongous in DM East. I love the tribute runs and becoming King of the Gordoks of DM North. I love breaking the shield to fight the beast in DM West and finally discovering and destroying the true villain behind the story.

Haha, and I luv fighting Bloodlord Mandokir in ZG, and hearing him say "ding" with the occasional "gratz!" from the npcs. :D

My favorite NPC comment is when Nef yells into the UBRS Rend sequence "go for the one in the dress!"

Temple of Atal'Hakkar, aka Sunken Temple.

Fun encounters, different mobs and strats thoughout the zone, and can be done with just about any bizarre combination of classes you can come up with.

Maraudon, primarily from an aesthetic standpoint
ZF / ZG cause I can root and mount
ST cause I like putting things to sleep
DM. Pleasing to the eye, and fun/tough fights. Killer loot.

Most Hated:

BRD. I hate all of BRD, especially the Jailbreak sequence
Uldamann. I always get lost. No matter what.

I like AQ 20 as well, being able to use our roots is invaluable in the Gen Rajaxx fight. Im so glad Blizz didnt gimp our already gimped crowd control in every dungeon.

I only dislike UBRS do to how many times I've had to run it for various quests.

I love Black Wing Lair as well. My guild normally does it in one night. From about 7pm to 11:30 (2 sccepter shards in 2 weeks!). It is a very challenging raid zone with not nearly as large as other dungeons but It is basically 8 Boss Events in a row with some pulls of in between.

AQ is a fun instance as well and is definately designed for a druid to come along, with all the poisons and being outdoors that extra root never hurts.

My favorite would prolly be Maradon as well, my priest used to live in that zone and back when they could solo the princess i used to do it 4 or 5 times a day for DE mats it was great fun and i cant wait untill my leedle drood is old enough to get in :) 41 today and screaming up fast!

My least favorite would have to be Uld... I HATE that zone that or BRD, BRD is fun but i have done it soooo many times now that it makes me want to jam sporks in my own eyes :P

wailing caverns was my favroite because it was such a maze

SM, WC, ZF, are all great. Two "hell yea" moments for me were in Deadmines and RFD. I've never played an alliance character so I was on my alt shaman when I saw someone asking for more on a run to deadmines. WTH, I'll give it a try. Lots of fun, walking in and seeing a pirate ship was sweet.

The other one in RFD is when you come up to a huge pile of bones with a skeleton dancing on top of it. First time there for all of us. Warrior goes charging up there and 783 other skeletons join the fight. Good times...

I'm 50 now, so I still haven't seen all the instances.

Deadmines: I love this dungeon, the creativity and the series of quests that lead up to it. The bosses are great. You land lubbers are tougher than I thought!

Scarlet Monastery: I love the theme, and it's fun to do.

Zul'Furrak: I love the part on the staircase, that's always challenging.

Maraudon: Just started it.

Maraudon: Just started it.

Be sure to get screen caps of the princess....she is hot!

Adding Scholomance to my list of favorites.

Must say that ZF's got a special place in memory, even after all this time raiding and in Outland. Maybe just because it was one of the first instances where you could start acting your class (there's so much missing pre-40 for any class), that it's relatively easy to get a group to and get into, and because it has some nice events that for instance (no pun intended :grin:) SM doesn't. But SM comes close in atmosphere
