I hope never to run an instance like Black Rock Depths again. Granted it was epic feeling, it was cohesive in vibe and design regardless of what area you were in, unlike the Coilfang instances. There is one huge problem with BRD - pugging it is a nightmare.No one I've grouped with was ever on the same quest chains. Pugging BRD required a level of compromise that usually meant you could turn in the crumpled note for the Windsor chain but not do the escort quest. You could go kill Incidius but not much else. Everyone wanted to do the arena, but no one ever seem to want to get the Shadowforge key.It was also annoying that no one ever seem to know their way around the map (Atlas didn't help much with that either). If you're new at running BRD, being with a party that got lost sucked.Granted BRD was not designed to full clear in a session, but having pugged BRD everyday for a full week just to get a handful of quests done (and never seeing the emperor), was just too exhausting and leaves that place with a bitter taste in my mouth.While BC instances may not feel epic, I think players like having a sense of accomplishment of doing a full clear and being able to accomplish divergent goals like getting Kara key frags without big compromises.
