    Instance Walkthrough Guide

    All information from http://www.lurkerlounge.com/forums/l...hp/t5329.html:

    (Reposted from my main forum post, thank you for any contributions!)

    Hello everyone,

    My friends and I have been working on creating a comprehensive instance guide. This will be a quick summary of information for everyone – you can get directions, summaries of group needs, walkthroughs, maps, etc. as quickly as possible.

    What I need are contributions and corrections. If you have anything you’d like to add to the list, just let me know and I’ll credit you! (Nasty replies, of course, will be stripped of all useful information and not credited in the slightest. wink.gif

    Currently, this version is Horde-specific. I may expand it to include early Alliance instances if there is enough feedback.

    Thank you all for your time.

    Version 2.03

    Changes to V2.03: Added nice Gameamp maps for Blackfathom Deeps, Ragefire, Razorfen Downs, Razorfen Kraul, Scarlet Monastery, Shadowfang Keep, Wailing Caverns, and Zul’Farrak.

    Seeking for V2.04:
    * Lower Blackrock Spire walkthrough
    * Onyxia’s Lair map
    * Onyxia’s Lair walkthrough
    * Scholomance map
    * Scholomance walkthrough
    * Stratholme walkthrough
    * Sunken Temple map
    * Uldaman walkthrough
    * Upper Blackrock Spire walkthrough
    * Zul’farrak walkthrough

    NOTE ON RECOMMENDED LEVELS: People enter instances for two reasons – to harvest treasure, and to complete quests. Some recommended levels may shift depend on which bosses you’re willing to face; see the individual entries for details specific to your goals. Priests can tend to be of slightly lower level if they are protected.

    NOTE FOR HIGH-LEVEL INSTANCES
    For the Horde side, if you’re using a 5-person group, a good recommended mix is Mage, Priest, Shaman, Warlock or Rogue, Warrior. Warlocks tend to supercede Rogues in the more difficult instances if there are only 5 people. Raid groups have more flexibility.

    MARAUDON

    Difficulty: #12 of 20 (moderate to challenging)

    Location: Swamp of Sorrows
    Directions: Go into the lake.

    Summary of Quests:
    http://www.thottbot.com/?z=89

    BLACKROCK DEPTHS
    Abbreviation: BRD
    Difficulty: #13 of 20 (challenging)
    Recommended Group: 5 to 10 players. Running with 5 people is rare; raids are far more common due to difficulty. A Mage (with instant arcane explosion) is strongly recommended for the Lyceum area. A skilled Rogue can be substituted for the Mage if need be.
    Recommended Levels: 54-56 with an optimal group, 56-60 for most. 56+ is strongly recommended for the second half of this instance.
    Location: Burning Steppes
    Directions: Under Blackrock Mountain.

    LOWER BLACKROCK SPIRE
    Abbreviation: LBRS
    Difficulty: #14 of 20 (hard)
    Recommended Group: 5-10 players. At least 2 healers (Priest / Shaman / Druid) are recommended.
    Recommended Levels: 57-60?
    Location: Burning Steppes
    Directions: Blackrock Mountain.
    Walkthrough / Maps: None known, requesting information

    STRATHOLME
    Abbreviation: Strat. Split into Stratholme Scarlet and Stratholme UD. Stratholme UD is one of the most time-effective high-level instances for items.
    Difficulty: #15 of 20 (hard)
    Recommended Group: 5-14 players. Requires a very good 5-player group, otherwise a raid will be necessary. Currently, a 5-person group will take a long time and is not advisable. ~10-14 people are therefore recommended until this instance is changed. The Baroness especially can be buggy; sometimes it helps if everyone gets to the top of the stairs right by the door.
    Recommended Levels: 57-60. For smaller groups, 60 is strongly recommended.
    Location: Eastern Plaguelands
    Directions: Located in the northernmost valley, north of Plaguewood.

    SCHOLOMANCE
    Abbreviation: Scholo
    Difficulty: #16 of 20 (hard)
    Recommended Group: 5-10 players. Difficult for 5 people. A 5-person group will take a very long time, up to 8 hours. Raiding this instance is recommended, until it is fixed. One of the worst high-level instances for items, time-wise, and buggy. A Warlock is recommended to protect against a wipe. 2 Priests are recommended for the final boss.
    Recommended Levels: 59-60?
    Location: Western Plaguelands.
    Directions: On an island in Darrowmere Lake, southeast Western Plaguelands. Can also be reached from the Hinterlands via Plaguemist Ravine.
    Walkthrough / Maps: None known, requesting information.
