"The classic dungeons ended up being a big hit with players, so we knew we wanted keep the momentum going by remaking more dungeons. "They are popular with some players but I don't know if describing them as a "big hit" is very accurate. I know they are my least favorite of the new dungeons and I've seen that sentiment echoed a lot on the forums.

Eh, honestly I dig the new Shadowfang, and I am okay with Deadmines. I like that they updated the stories in each. I suspect a fair bit of why they are not forum favorites is because on initial release, they were both brutal instances, particularly when compared to some of the other heroics (VP, HoO, ToT)... They had taken Deadmines, in particular, already a lengthy run and dragged it out to be probably the longest heroic I ever ran.After they thinned out some of the trash and fixed a few bugs, it wasn't bad, but man did I hate that stupid zone still. Still doesn't replace the Lost City of Tol'vir or Grim Batol as my least favorites though. It's just something about troggs or pygmies that I hate. I blame Gnomeregan and Ulduman for that.

I wonder who they are listening to. Most people dislike hSFK and hDM because they are simply too long. SFK has all the issues with small confining spaces, and DM just goes on forever. I am not saying the redesign has been bad or anything, but they just dont fit in the current model of dungeons (since BC). ZA/ZG are also quite long. Maybe the solution is to have LFD give you reward at halfway point like it does for DM and maru and others (BRD, etc). For myself personally, i can't play with my best friend because we simply do not have time. He gets on at 10 at night and plays for an hour. We can't do a heroic in that time period (we don't raid, so we will not outgear the content any time soon).I am feeling like if we want to do heroics again, wait until 4.3 when everyone outgears it and an hour can finish it on the typical pug. I miss wraith; for all its easy mode at least we could play together.
