The DarkMoon Faire has returned to Azeroth, and that means it’s time to break out my Pandaren monk and let him ride the Darkmoon carousel for the additional 10% XP buff and chain run instances until I’m blue in the face.
Last month I did the calculations and with various experience boosts that is available to my monk and I found out that I can get up to 95% additional experience points for every quest or dungeon I complete and I’m at the crucial levels where I need it the most.
In Cataclysm, Blizzard’s greatest gift to players was the redesign of the vanilla dungeons. While the resigns and maps made the low level tolerable to run in the Looking for Group I have a feeling that they could only do so much for the high 30-50 dungeons.
I am talking about the dungeons that consists of multiple bosses, spread out in a winding maze definitively and endless waves of trash pulls. All of these dungeons showed the old Blizzard game style of grand spacious zones with the potential of dedicating hours of gameplay to the instance before encountering the final boss to get your chance for the loot you wanted.
As Blizzard changed the dungeon design from more open and wondering dungeons to more of a streamlined approach that emerged from Burning Crusade and beyond. After running a few of those dungeon runs I can state those old dungeons has not aged well.
