i agree that kara was a masterpiece in both design and scale.ulduar and icc both lack ambience. ya there are shiny things in ulduar and there are floating spirits in icc. but when i talk about ambience i'm referring to all the little details.go into LBRS. that place is full of ambience. details like this is where they eat, there are crates and broken chairs. you go up through the spider rafters through cracks in the wall.now compare that to icc, which is basically just here is boss A, then go to next room and here is boss B. not much ambience.

I hadn't read this comment when I posted further down, but yeah, this is exactly how I see it.LBRS is one of the most incredible instances I think they've ever done. I fell in love with it when I was pickpocketing Heavy Junkboxes in there on my rogue, and it's amazing how real it feels. Stealth through there and you see people sleeping, talking to each other, walking around, working...I wasn't running through there killing them, so it really gave the impression that they just go on with their business whether we're there or not. It does a great job of building a sense of danger just with ambiance, in the places where the walls have crumbled and you're not so much taking a path as darting around on the beams in the ceiling. You really feel like you can crawl all over that place, and I'm kind of nervous at this point about what they'll do to it in Cataclysm. :/
