Old instances are not dead!
And that was a tricky title… the idea of this post is to discuss why are YOU playing WOW!
Is it to gear up and be the best that you can be in game? Is it to enjoy a fun time with friends? Or is it something else?
Yes, Stratholme is a level 60 instance, with under-par loot compared to Outlands greens and blues; but it is still FUN. We did the whole instance in group of three toons: I was tanking on Dreadmoon (level 70 druid); we have a healer (level 62 priest) and DPS (level 62 mage).
Running a level 60 instance with a smaller group makes it still a challenge, running a level 60 instance with friends is priceless.
Most of us had little to no experience in Stratholme. After all, going into the high end instances when the cap was 60 wasn’t always easy (try getting groups for level 70 instances now in TBC ;-) ). So for some of us, instances like Stratholme, Dire Maul, Blackrock Depths and Scholomance are always a fun experience.
Now, what is your take on that? Would you consider running old level 60 instances a waste of time or are you willing to do it for the fun of it?
