Never played DDO so I can't relate to the pit.

Nonetheless large dungeon crawls, with a small group of friends, have given me some of my fondest MMO experiences.

If I'd have to pick I say Aion :P

Never ever ever again

The one thing I found pretty cool about TR was the Logos language.

I still like writting with it from time to time as a (geeky) secret language. hehe

At first I thought the map diagram pictured above was from BRD.

I've never been much of an endgame or raider type. In fact I've only, in the last 6 months or so, started doing these dungeons with any real gusto or interest.

I reckon if I were a part of a raiding group or had a tight group of friends who did this kind of stuff regularly I might enjoy it more, as PUGs tend to be rough around the edges at best. My kinship in LotRO does do this stuff but very casually.

That said, I recently did The Rift (a 12-man LoTRO raid) and I don't think I will do that again, even when level scaling takes effect. It took us about 4 hours and a number of wipes, not to mention a few drops that took time to replace. The experience of it was fairly cool; The Rift is a very interesting zone, aesthetically, and defeating the lesser balrog is definitely something I'm glad I did. However the story made no sense and it was just TOO LONG.

Some will say that this raid was from the heyday, back when LotRO's endgame was 'good' or that it is a long raid meant to take a few days instead of one long drag. I say, spare me. I'll hold out for Mordor. Cool gear does take the edge off, though.

The Rift is NOT bad at all.. It is a little long, but I am sure they will change that with a future update... Sometimes you can easily get a bad rub from a bad pug so that is probably what made it so bad.. I am thinking we will soon see the return of the rift as one of the most played instances in Lotro...

Hellfire Peninsula in WoW. Barren, lifeless, too many travel quests, and all for one of the least scenic areas in any game I've played. When I still played WoW, whenever I had to level someone through HP, I just couldn't bring myself to do it.

Damn you, Zangarmarsh! Ever since you made me quit WoW for 3 months I've been skipping you, jumping from HP straight to Terokkar.

Zangarmarsh was the zone that put you off?

What the hell ...

It's only the best damn zone in the game! Am I misreading this comment?

Have to say that Hellfire is my favorite leveling zone in BC. I'm kind of indifferent on Zangar, but I hate Terrokar. Luckily, we can skip the zones we don't like anymore.

I hate BRD, but Sunken Temple is my favorite instance in WoW, it was just so much fun, and I have it memorized...

Plain of Growth raids in EQ. All day affairs with people coming and going. You had to clear hundreds (maybe thousands?) of mobs to get to the boss.

The Winner by far in this category is Black Rock Depths in WOW. It takes so long to get back to your corpse if you die. I shudder to think about going there again...

OMG the pit is hands down my FAVORITE LEVEL in all DDO.

Seriously, I don't see why people have such a hard time with it and why so few people stick around for the avatar after the level is complete is beyond me.

Content that I won't ever bother with again .... most of SRO and the like. So anything that is say, gather 1000 of X item by the way its a 1:50 drop if your lucky.
