    1. Dire Maul ( Especially that flower/imp part.)
    2. Halls of Stone (Long, repetetive no challenge gauntlet.)
    3. Trial of the Champion (Terrible, jousting, it had always pointless loot.)
    4. Siege of Niuzao Temple ( Another long and boring gauntlet, annoying last boss.)
    5. Hour of Twilight (Too much boring RP, slow, bad bosses.)

    eurgh yeah, culling of stratholme before they added the option to skip the RP, that was horrible.

    5) Blackrock Depths - sweet, sweet times of vanilla. Sweet times of teams disbanding almost instantly when nobody knew what the fuck to do.
    4) Halls of Stone - Tribunal of Ages. Nuff said.
    3) Shado-Pan Monastery - Long, boring, uncreative. And the boring ass gauntlet before Snowdrift.
    2) Well of Eternity - even if you are good, you can't speed this damn place up. + voice acting at its finest.
    Number 1: Dire Maul West. Terrible design, boring ass bosses, and the ingenious idea of "not a single trash mob left unkilled, or you can't proceed!"

    1) Old Sunken Temple. The place was confusing, you'd always run into wandering trash, the mini bosses were all lackluster, and it was in the middle of nowhere.
    2) Hour of Twilight. This whole dungeon could very well have been a 4.3 quest chain.
    3) Oculus. The vehicle combat was clumsy, people were always getting lost...
    4) Nexus. The instance was clumsily laid out and the trash was annoying
    5) Siege of Niuzao. Setting could have been much cooler. Bosses are annoying, layout is annoying. All and all rather forgettable.


    And I never really minded TOC. I was actually good at jousting. And the bosses on heroic (other than Eadric) actually proved to require coordination.

    5-All of Dire Maul. I hate that place.
    4-Stormstout Brewery. Fast and easy, but still i cannot stand running it. Heh.
    3-Shado-pan Monastery. Slow, painful, lots of bosses (compared to other heroics) and freezing archers too.
    2-Oculus. Braindead people ruining it, mostly.
    1-Halls of Stone. I wouldn't stand Tribunal of Ages being the only boss in a heroic. But that would make it way faster, given the thought of that encounter PLUS other bosses killed me everytime.

    1. Oculus
    2. Trial of the Champion
    3. Old Hillsbrad
    4. Sunken Temple (vanilla version)
    5. Auchenai Crypts

    Dishonorable Mentions:
    The Arcatraz
    Halls of Reflection
    Hour of Twilight
    Black Morass
    Halls of Stone

    What do a lot of these have in common? A lot of them involve vehicles (1, 2), a lot of them are long (3, 4, 5), and a lot of them have flow-breaking mechanics that force you to sit and wait (1, 3, 4, Black Morass, Hour of Twilight, Halls of Reflection, Halls of Stone). These are the key factors that lead to a bad 5-man. Let me get in and get out quickly, don't make me sit around twiddling my thumbs in an RP scene or scripted encounter, and please fire the developers who think vehicles are fun.

    Shockingly none of the MoP dungeons have struck me as awful. Shado-Pan Monastery sucks, but nowhere near as much as the above dungeons.
