So my favorite classic dungeon is Dead Mines… ORIGINAL deadmines. I hate the new re-work of deadmines because the story is completely different and kinda boring. It was the first dungeon I’ve ever done in any MMO. It made me LOVE dungeons, and want to do every one of them. It was also my real first interaction with other players in WoW.

Hope you guys are having a great day and a great show. So week 5’s topic of my favourite classic dungeon was a bit of a difficult one for me. I had to take a bit and remember back to my classic days and all the times I ran every one of those dungeons to figure out which held the best memories for me. I narrowed it down to two: Maraudon and Dire Maul, and of those two I’d have to say that, while Dire Maul is awesome in it’s own right, Maraudon is my favourite.

It’s so large, which was awesome at the time I remember; it was like an epic adventure going through that place, especially on your first time through. More importantly, I think it’s one of the most beautiful dungeons in the game. It’s awesome how you go through different “zones” in it, huge waterfalls, moss-covered rock vistas, large pools of water, and crystals of many colours. Just awesome :)

Have a great show guys, and I’ll talk to you next week

Another great spot to farm Embersilk is Tol Barad Pennisula on the Restless Front, very low health mobs fighting each other which drop a ton of cloth for a tailor. By the time you pull several packs and AOE them down they will respawn. These guys are higher level than Deepholm so have better drops. Popping a treasure finding potion helps as you’ll get a worthwhile amount of bonuses that contain tons of cloth, and increased green drops that you need for the enchanting mats for bags.

@HunterKamosa @Molsan @SaltySlainte Fun episode! thanks guys!

@Mominatrix75 My fave vanilla dungeon was Strat. I think because I’m such a lore nerd it really engaged me and also “Youve been Malowned!”
