You can only run the old instances if you can get them to launch.http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=17368007967&sid=1&pageNo=1

Hmmm.Getting rid of ghetto hearthing was supposed to fix that.Guess not.---Anyway, I was quite surprised that perhaps the most obvious reason for running old-world instances wasn't mentioned:Achievements.

Yes I believe AQ is 1 of the few raids (or the only one) that once it opens then the mount that is in there, can be obtained. I believe once its been obtained, then its gone. Can anyone clarify this to be sure? I'm going by what I've heard and read before.And I saw the Logitech keyboard on G4's Attack of The Show last night. It was awesome.

@TaskThat's just the black bug (which is usable anywhere). There are several other colors that can only be used in AQ20/40 that drop from the trash in AQ40 and that's what Adam is talking about.Those trash mounts drop like candy.

@ Jon Do"Several, besides the obvious one of achievements."First line?

And the other reason for doing old raids and instances? Experience.Not XP, but the actual experience of running content *before* it becomes 'important' at level 80 (for 'important' read 'if you screw up here, other people will be annoyed' - not quite so much an issue in older raids.)I think it's a good idea to look at the legacy content whilst levelling if you can because playing that stuff at near the right level, even with a few capped players helping out, can teach you a lot about tactics.

@Futue & others:Adam added "obvious achievements" as a ninja edit.It was so obvious that I double-checked myself, and you can see for yourself that others early comments were about achievements as well.
