Ulduar – the best looking instance?

One good thing about wiping on new content is the fact that you get plenty of time to have a good look at your surroundings.


Most of Vanilla WoW’s instances were dark, dank and full of either orcs or bugs. Neither of which are a particularly attractive species.

TBC brought us neon pink Bloodelf decorations, more dark dank stuff in the Black Temple and Naga. Although I have to admit a slight fondness for troll related instances and karazhan. BT, SSC and TK I loathed with a passion I usually reserve for Brussel Sprouts.

Ulduar on the other hand is diverse. Different zones with different types of ornamentation, trash mobs and a completely different feel. Light airy zones intermingle with darker more mechanical ones. There is a feeling of space, of openness and the impression you could easily get lost whilst exploring.


Given that raiders will be spending a large amount of time in a new instance, its look and feel are important. Personally after my very first Tempest Keep raid I would have been happy never to return so to find Ulduar is for  the most part easy on the eye helps take some of the pain out of corpse running.
