"The instance itself isn't poorly designed" I respectfully disagree, at least most dungeons have one entrance, this thing has two or three, and then you have twisting caverns, multiple levels (Fall off a cliff and its a LONG trek back, especially if you missed/passed any trash along the way), a high number of bosses for a 5-man dungeon that isn't a NR heroic, and to top it all off, should you die/wipe in the dungeon, you have to run ALL the way back... but that's just my two cents. At least with the Blackrock dungeons, the layout makes navigation somewhat possible (it has its own problems but I'd rather go to BRD or LBRS then Mara any day of the week) even with the "dungeon inside a dungeon" thing its got going on (Which actually is a raid iirc)......Getting to the topic at hand though: I always wondered why exactly we were going to Sunken Temple. Its remote, its not well maintained (Submereged in the water partially) and all the bosses seem to either be crazy cultists or some angry dragons and from reading the description of it on the wowwiki, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of motivation for players to go there aside from 'phat lewtz' and "oh btw those guys are teh evilz".Another one is Hellfire Citadel/Magtheridon's Lair: If Illidan took over Outland as he claimed, why do we need to slay the previous "Management", who's already under lock and key (or fel magic and binding glyphs more likely)-- which raises another question: why didn't illidan kill Magtheridon outright, instead of imprisonment ? (Only thing I can think of is that Illidan wanted to give Mag a taste of his own 10k year seclusion)

>Hellfire Citadel/Magtheridon's Lairit's all orc obeying illidanthey siphon Magtheridon for his blood, to create more crazy strong orc for the Illidan's army.So Horde and Alliance need to kill the source of blood : magtheridon.-BRD is one of my favorite instances.

They've got magtheridon in there because they're stealing his blood, and using it to create fel orcs. Remember all those fancy machines in the blood furnace? Yeah, makin' dem orcs. Sunken temple is reasonable, a green dragon has gone bonkers. He was evidently (WoWwiki) sent to deal with the troll threat in the temple by Ysera, but did a bad job and got captured, and corrupted by the old gods.

"Getting to the topic at hand though: I always wondered why exactly we were going to Sunken Temple."Mainly because of Hakkar. There's a quest chain in Tanaris where you fight the ghost of the blood god but the whole quest chain is really a trick to help someone free him, and part of it takes place in the Sunken Temple. Everything else in there - the six priests, the dragons, killing the prophet Jammal'an - is just mercenary work or treasure-hunting."Another one is Hellfire Citadel/Magtheridon's Lair: If Illidan took over Outland as he claimed, why do we need to slay the previous "Management"... why didn't illidan kill Magtheridon outright, instead of imprisonment ?"Because Illidan is using Magtheridon to make fel orcs - physically stronger than normal orcs, and slaves to Illidan - and Illidan isn't our friend.

Sunken Temple is part of one of the more foreboding quest chains in the game.You start with a simple quest at level 40: http://www.wowhead.com/?quest=3520, and then get sent through Zul'Farrak, Jintha'alor, Sunken Temple, Zul'Mashar and Lower Blackrock Spire, before discovering that you were instrumental in supplying the Hakkari with the means to resurrect Hakkar into a corporeal body.You then get sent to Yojamba Isle where, instead of berating you, the Zandalari Tribe aid you in your attempts to defeat Hakkar.
