Day 05 - Your favorite classic instance
Aww man, I really liked two of them. Both of them I had a higher level guildie running me through them, but...well I still enjoyed the experience. :/
I have to say that my favorite one was Shadowfang Keep. I really liked the werewolves (I guess they'd be Worgen before Worgen). I thought they were Hawt Hawt at the time (even though they were trying to rip my face off). The location wasn't bad either, AND it was the first castle like building I can remember seeing in game that struck me as purely Alliance in nature. At that time I had participated in BGs and was completely, 100% opposed to EVER playing an alliance character EVER. They didn't have what I deemed to be 'acceptable' races whatsoever to play- plus, of course, they were my enemy so...yeah. First castle type location which I thought was cool. Werewolfs, which were cool. Nice location, which was nice. Enjoy some lore on Shadowfang.
During the Third War, the wizards of the Kirin Tor battled against the undead armies of the Scourge. When the wizards of Dalaran died in battle, they would rise soon after - adding their former might to the growing Scourge. Frustrated by their lack of progress (and against the advice of his peers) the Archmage, Arugal elected to summon extra-dimensional entities to bolster Dalaran's diminishing ranks. Arugal's summoning brought the ravenous worgen into the world of Azeroth. The feral wolf-men slaughtered not only the Scourge, but quickly turned on the wizards themselves. The worgen sieged the keep of the noble, Baron Silverlaine. Situated above the tiny hamlet of Pyrewood, the keep quickly fell into shadow and ruin. Driven mad with guilt, Arugal adopted the worgen as his children and retreated to the newly dubbed 'Shadowfang Keep'. It's said he still resides there, protected by his massive pet, Fenrus - and haunted by the vengeful ghost of Baron Silverlaine.
Another instance that I'd like to mention is Razorfen Kraul. Yeah the one with the swineses. I LOVE BOARS and thus I love Razorfen. With lore like "Ten thousand years ago - during the War of the Ancients, the mighty demigod, Agamaggan, came forth to battle the Burning Legion. Though the colossal boar fell in combat, his actions helped save Azeroth from ruin." ...what's not to love? Killing the believed and deranged offspring of such a mighty hero of the world?
