World of Warcraft's 7th Anniversary: Top 10 Classic Dungeons

It's World of Warcaft's Seventh Anniversary! As a devoted fan and player, (although sometimes off and on) I've played through my share pf dungeons and raids. It's not always easy to find the right combination of players who can effectively deal damage, heal or tank. But, if you can cooperate with other players long enough to successfully complete a dungeon or raid without getting kicked, then you will reap the benefits including all the loot, and rare items you can carry (not to mention the XP)! Every dungeon and raid has it's own charm and unique qualities but there are a few particular ones who always give the best drops and provide the most fun! CHERNOBOG'S BLOG Presents: The Top 10 World of Warcraft Classic Dungeons...Enter Dungeon!

#10 Stormwind Stockade (20-30) - A maximum-security prison complex beneath Stormwind. When a prisoner-led revolt left Warden Thelwater incapable of managing the chaos, he left it up to the warriors and heroes of Stormwind to quell the riot of Stormwind's most wanted criminals!
#9 Wailing Caverns (15-25) - Discovered by the Night-Elf druid Naralex, the Wailing Caverns lie beneath the Northern Barrens. Once known as the Emerald Dream, the caverns once pure underground springs are now a breeding ground for the most foul and vicious creatures!

#8 Ragefire Chasm (15-21) - The chasm consists of a network of volcanic caverns which lie underneath the Orc city of Orgrimmar. Inhabited by followers of a demonic cult known as the Searing Blade, the cult seek to threaten Durotar and the forces of The Horde.

#7 Deadmines (15-21) - Once a plentiful gold mine for the Kingdom of Stormwind, now it is a base of operations for the Defias Brotherhood. Led by Vanessa VanCleef, daughter of former leader Edwin VanCleef, she leads the Defias in a plot to bring down the kingdom and to avenge her father's death!

#6 Shadowfang Keep (16-26) - Near Pyrewood Village in the Silverpine forest looms this dark fortress. Lord Vincent Godfrey has taken over this haunted castle along with several creatures of The Scourge and ghosts of the past!

#5 Scarlet Monastery (26-45) - One the center of learning and enlightenment in the Kingdom of Lorderon, with the rise of The Scourge, the monastery became a fortress for the religious fanatics known as The Scarlet Crusade. The crusaders are intolerant of all non-human races seeking to rid Azeroth of the undead plague. Their leaders, Scarlet Commander Mograine and High Inquisitor Whitemane, command a vast army of devoted zealots.

#4 Scholomance (38-48) - Beneath the keep of Caer Darrow lies a series of crypts once owned by the noble Barov family. Now the wizard Kel'Thuzad, servant of the Lich King and his Cult of the Damned have overrun the crypts and turned it into a school for necromancy!

#3  Dire Maul (36-52) - The ancient city of Eldre'Thalas now lie in ruins infested by the spectral Highborne, satyrs and ogres. As you make your way through this dungeon's three districts you will face several deadly bosses such as Zevrim Foulhoof, Prince Tortheldrin and the demonic Immo'thar!

#2 Blackrock Depths (47-60) - Beneath the Blackrock Mountains is the home of the Dark Iron dwarves and their Emperor Dagran Thaurissan. Among the vast horde of Dark Iron dwarves and fire elementals, there is also The Seven, a group of powerful Dark iron dwarf mages who protect the black forge!

#1 Blackwing Lair (60) - At the very height of Blackrock Spire dwells Nefarian, the Lord of Blackrock, and the eldest son of Deathwing! He, along with his fellow Dragonkin makes Blackwing Lair one of the most difficult raids in World of Warcraft!
