My personal dislike for Gnomeregan has nothing (ok maybe a little) to do with it being a bad instance.. it has to do with it being lost in there so many times. :) I like the gnome/dwarf questlines, and the quests that send you there aren't all that bad (and totally doable in one run *if* you've got a group who knows where to go.. with dungeon finder, that works out better than it used to. But I'm talking as an 80 doing those quests for rep grinds because I trashed them when I was at-level for the place pre-finder. I got lost. A lot. Took me over an hour to get all the way through, clearing the entire thing. Its HUGE! Now, flipping viewpoints, to an alt that uses dungeon finder to complete the quests in there.. the view you saw from the bottom was awesome because you worked your way down and saw how far you'd come. Now, more often than not, groups jump off the side when they get to a point that the group (mostly) won't die from the jump. I can remember the first time I was running the place as a tauren druid, I was the healer, so naturally I was in the back of the group. We finished with one mob, everyone had full green bars and us mana users were drinking up for the next round. All of a sudden the tank was dead. Nothing attacking, no one else was dying, but the tank was dead. I tried to rez him, but it kept saying out of range. I asked what happened, one of the others said he jumped, must have landed in a mob. Tank said, uhm yeah.. I think I jumped off to soon. A little further down the ledge, another group member kinda walked off and survived.. so me and my shaman friend followed.. and survived. I rezzed the tank and healed myself quickly, the shaman helped me out by healing some of the others so we could move quick because of the oozes. But, almost every other time we got randomed into there, the group went off the side. Its a shame that more people won't get to have that 'woah' feeling from the bottom that you had because (if the instance remains at all close to what it is now), it'll become common practice to jump off the side.
