    Scholomance - Dungeon Preview

    Scholomance is returning with a more streamlined layout. The old lower level version will remain accessible for lower level characters. The dungeon will have five bosses:

    Dear god, why can't they just add new hallways with bosses and loot if they like them so much? Why the fuck do they keep butchering all the good old instances? Don't try to fix what isn't broken. Damn you Blizzard!
    That's why you need me.... Need someone to punish you for your sins.

Now that game has changed to become a tactical arcade lobby game.

    Scholomance sucks in it's current incarnation.

    This was without a doubt my favorite instance in WoW and once again Blizzard ruined a good thing. This is one reason why they lost so many subscribers.

    Yeah, I guess you might think that if you're a terrible person.

    ...sorry, I get defensive about my nostalgia.

    They lost so many subscribers because they reused scholomance?

    In a way it IS broken.

    Two things cause a 5man instance to become a nightmare for PUGs (DF users):
    1. Difficulty too high. Lots of wipes, players leaving
    2. No one knows the way through the instance. Lots of time spent waiting, players leaving

    It's really all about making the instance so easy to understand at first glance that you have a chance at clearing it with a PUG without much trouble.
    Maybe you have had the situation in Blackrock Depths, if you wipe and one guy doesn't know the way back to the entrance so you wait 30 minutes because even with explanation it's kind of hard to find in that area. It's maddening, I tell you. Usually those guys are kicked, but that's not great at all for a true newbie who needs help instead of kicks.

    And yes, I hate that too, I wish the 5man were more challenging, but it makes sense. Because if you don't do that, you will get frustrated by PUGs very quickly, or avoid those types of dungeons altogether.
    Blizzard should just add another difficulty for 5man, NOT accessible via dungeon finder, which is like a bonus thing to do for raiders with raid equipment with an appropriate difficulty level.

    It's fine to have one.
    It's fine to be proud of it.
    But please, don't whip it out in public and wave it around,
    And please, don't try to shove it down my children's throats.

    They're likely doing this because when people found out Deadmines and SFK were being redone for Cata, Scholo and SM were two of the ones people constantly whined that they wanted a high level version of too.

    Agreed. OH GOD AGREED. Scholo was my absolute favorite instance in classic wow, after what they did to Deadmines, SFK, ZA/ZG - They need to back the fuck off scholo.

    Are we going to have to suffer with identical drops with the word "Heroic" attached to them again?

    This is just lazy programming.
    Anyone else think Jaime Lannister only has the Kingslayer title because he was just too lazy to kill the king on heroic mode?

    While I do agree the size, lay out, and mass of smashable zombies make it an awesome dungeon too many times have I gotten lost to run this place in a lfd pug on heroic. Still, hopes up that they keep the awesome.

    They had to cut the budget somewhere.

    OT: R.I.P Scholo even though I never played in vanilla I did have a lot fun running it for the first time in TBC.

    I like how the most people came into the Scholo and SM threads simply to whine about them and the other high level dungeons have no or barely no comments at all.
    I do wonder some times why some folks still play this game, or stick around to just be negative all the time. It's as if no-one watched Blizzcon.
