Favorite Instance?

So I got bored and I thought I'd ask:

What is each of your personal favorite instances and why?


Mine is Endless Universe, why? Because I find it extremely easy; I only have to Blade Affinity+Unfetter to the next mirror then fight a few bosses. The rewards are pretty fun too, and honestly I don't really care if there's a few mess ups aslong as someone owns up to it or says they're new to EU.

I am a Seeker though, so I imagine some other classes like barb or cleric might have a very different view of EU b:laugh

    Favorite place USED to be: Delta (but ever since the removal of coins, the popularity of this place has plummeted, granted we can still earn cash from it, it is at such an indirect way people just avoid it.) Yes this was REGARDLESS of what character I was on, played every character I ever had there fairly well.

    NEW favorite place: Flowsilver Palace

    As for the why: Fairly simple and easy, rewarding, and quick most of the time.

    Favorite instance is full Warsong. Second would be flowsilver. I've never done EU at least not yet, but the former two I like because it takes a good squad that works together. I don't mind full delta or SoT/Aba (BH/FB or culti) since I like helping people even those I don't know, but definitely FWS is tops in my list. It's just fun to me.

    Least favorite would be FC because its boring and too many are dependent on it.

    Edit: forgot about Lunar, so had to add it after reading WannaBM's post below so FWS, Lunar, then FS

    Lunar.
    Short, fast, Nice combination for my 2 barb things. Perfect length pulls for the anti stun skills. Then some boss to aps and repeat. Different paths to do (unfortunately only worth it during 2x) And TM.

    FW the defence is too boring. (and too anoying with DCs etc)

    UCH is boring in every way.

    Delta is even worse, most boring of all.

    FSP is kinda ok. Would apreciate it more if it were farmable instead of dayly.

    TT is nice except for the annoying thing where you have to wait for the doggy to spawn in 2-3.

    Aba and sot not too sure. Done the weeklies a lot. The purple balls are a major bummer for SOT. ABA is just way too easy.
    Everything i write is from PvE perspective unless mentioned otherwise.

    Favorite instance? Never thought about it. But I'd say any as long as you are in a good squad.

    Hard to say... theres pros and cons for me in many instances, but I marked some favs with green color and some least favs with red.

    Flowsilver Palace has nice bosses with nice tactics, however could have more pulling activity in there

    Full Warsong, but NOT mobless! I enjoy doing the pulls and bosses in there, defense is beyond boring though

    Endless Universe has a nice idea, but people tend to **** it up making it less enjoyable

    Delta used to be fun when people did it at auras in TT 90 gear, nowadays too easy and boring

    AEU is actually quite fun, no complaints, I just havent done it much

    Nirvana is much fun but now dead and sadly people were very picky with the squads so yeah

    Weekly Abaddon is fun, however takes some time to do and some organization at the puzzle which I find nice, last boss confuses some people

    Weekly SoT has some really cool parts and some pulling to do, however people have quite a bit of issues at Queen and Hellfire

    FC is boring and dull, only time it's fun is at 8x with no RBs

    TT has nice bosses and challenging mobs in 3-x, I like it, however people are picky with squads and it can get dull after a while

    Lunar has the good points WannaBM already pointed out, it's just a perfect barb instance <3 however squads tend to be hard to form for this

    UCH is boring. Plain and simple

    BH 69 is my fav lower level BH

    Delta tops my list. I like having to fortify... stand my ground. Granted, with any R9 or high refine G16's it's a breeze but still, very fun to do. I love running it on my cler. Mana aura lvl 1 and bubble remains up nearly forever...

    Flowsilver is next. Requires people to use their brains, and the instance mercilessly punishes people who are either unable to follow the instructions or go (semi)-afk. Good rewards, too.

    AEU: Same deal. Hard to do it as a first timer, but once you do it a few times it can be a lot of fun. I like how the game gives you 6 tokens per week but then lets -you- decide when to run them. Pile em up for a vacation and then multirun the **** out of it...

    Warsong: is fun but a bit intense. Most people run it for the G16 weapon molds but it is hard to def a pav solo without a G16 weapon to begin with. Not impossible though.

    TT is ma home, bro.

    But tbh. Anything that involves massive groups of mobs bashing on me and giving me the chi to perform all of my 2 spark AOEs in combination with triple spark, is amazing. As seen in Lunar, Delta and PV (Although PV is lame...they even die from a regular sunder ._.).

    We need more AOEing instances. We really do. I always wish I could just pull the whole Lunar...like a combined mode where any mob from the whole isntance is pushed into a single territory...that would be so friggin amazing. AOE BAM BAM BAM AOE BAM BAM BAM AOE, aso...

    Well I love AOE grinding in any game tbh. Without it...anything would be boring xDD

    I can't believe how much of the reasoning in here is 'it's easy' or 'it's fast', or 'it's farmable'. The reason should be 'it's fun!'.

    My favorite is easily EU, because of how different it is, the relay is fun.

    AEU is pretty great too.

    I also love love love Valley of Disaster as a caster. It's one of our main chances to tank well, which can be a fun change in play style.

    To respond to others:

    Lunar I just find boring. I end up sitting in BB the whole time.

    I used to love FC before rebirth was introduced, but now it's just people rushing through and not enjoying it. PV has always been boring.

    SoT has nice puzzles but is super frustrating. I just got better gear, maybe I'll try again and it'll be more fun.

    Haven't done FWS yet because people want someone who knows how to solo without giving people a chance to try...

    Delta is ok. Gets a bit boring and repetitive.

    Does Cube count as an instance? I know it's not instanced, but it's fun. I have a love/hate relationship with that place.

    TT... is fun, but nobody ever runs it in a squad, unless you manage to convince a fac or friends to do it. And I don't like running things solo, that's just no fun.

    You dont have to BB. You can try other skills too.

    Practice by yourself, you dont need to **** a whole squad to learn defending.

    I have tried other things, and the squads just yell at me to BB. So, I end up in BB.

    Yeah, I should try that.

    FWS pav defense is easy enough. Few rules of thumb:

    Water: Swarm mobs, 3 per wave. Melee. Use AOE capable chars to counter this (BM or Seeker). Their sacrifice explosion is less damaging then in other pavs.
    Wood: High phys resist mobs. Melee, slow moving, weak against metal skills. A high melee DD or caster with fair phys resists (or good kiter) can do them. Sin, Seeker, Archer or Cleric works well.
    Earth: High damage mobs. Melee, fast moving, weak against wood damage, trigger the selfsacrifice special often. Barb, BM or Seeker works best here - do not use squishies. HA veno is also an option.
    Fire: Ranged fire DD mobs with weak physical and metal resist, but they will run away from you. Ranged DD is best, especially archer and cleric.
    Metal: Ranged damage mobs. High phys resist, low water, earth and fire resists. They use selfsacrifice a lot, and sometimes bramble themselves. Ranged DD works best, especially psy or wizard.

    Kitty likes Delta, FC and FS the most as they're good places for shining. They can be a pain though with bad squads, Kitty's noticed far too many times. Doing all the work isn't fun =.='

    My favourite one is probably HH. Even though it's one of the oldest instances in game and I ran it so many times I can't count, it still doesn't annoy me. Important thing is it's always profitable (depending on how long it takes tho) and I don't need any kind of supplies in any chapter. What I really hate is the necessity of 4 people in squad to open.

    Most dungeons I treat like inevitable evil b:chuckle
    AUE/EU wouldn't be that bad if not 8-10 ppl requirements. Once it took us 40 minutes to make a squad, wait till others come from afk, another half or squad dc etc. I hate this BH with passion and skip it :D

    I liked full WS before I finished my armor, but there encountered with same problem - squad making. Nowadays nothing can drug me into full WS b:laugh Looking forward to get it as BH again though, as rumours say. As BH it was wonderful.

    Yeah, squad making is a ***** sometimes. I'm lucky that I have a guild that runs WS a bunch. Managed to solo fire perfectly yesterday finally, so I will add WS to a favorite dungeon. The pav defense takes a different strategy than other places, which is fun.

    Hi!

    I prefer Eden cause of the nice nature graphics while killing simple mobs and simple bosses. Nice also if lowbies need bh and tag along. All other instances I can do but I'm not fond of any other instance. It's just ok.

    I did AEU for the first time today. We had no one who had done it before in the squad and just tried to figure it out as we went along based on the red text. It took close to 2 hours to do but we all had a blast and felt super accomplished at the end of it. So AEU is definitely up there for me.
    Other than that I enjoy any instance as long as it's with friends because there's no pressure to be perfect and I can relax and have a good time
