WoW: Old Hillsbrad FTW
On Saturday last, Nina and I sat down and did 12 straight hours of World of Warcraft, playing through the entire attunement process for Karazhan. I didn't actually attune, since I've no interest in the raid, but the quests and storylines though Old Hillsbrad were so good that I'll be happy to do the instance again.
Black Morass, admittedly, was a lot more work for me, as Wormson the Warlock, than I've been accustomed to - the most efficient way to keep the various portal-spawned mobs away from Medivh was for me to drop Seed of Corruption on each of them, and occasional other DoTs. So I had to think a lot more than my usual wall of DoTs and DPS approach.
It's very unusual for me to get to the end of an instance, and be happy to do it again. The other ones in the attunement - Steam Vaults, Shadow Labs and Arcatraz - were ordinary, and while I'd run them again if people need to, I wouldn't want to go back. But I definitely want to run Old Hillsbrad again. Possibly even go in and poke around and see how much of the past is accessible. I hear a rumour you can buy stuff there. And of course, having my undead guy appear as though he were alive again is great for RP stuff. And there's even some justification in the whole time travel thing for repeating the instance.
