Oculus, everyone's favorite dungeon!/sarcasmI really never understood peoples' hate for it. Seemed to be the same quality as the other dungeons to me.

Oculus was a neat dungeon, but the last boss was odd to alot is they had to learn a drake, and sense only that instance had those drakes, it was sometimes hard for some to grasp the concept of the mechanics.Also a 3D up and down instance can have some lost.

Now I'm picturing an alot (http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/2010/04/alot-is-better-than-you-at-everything.html) riding a drake, Blancester. Thanks for that mental image.

I got lost. Every. Damn. Time. Spatially it's just a very strange thing to have to deal with for some people, myself included. Plus, yes, the drake mechanic was ridiculous, fighting bosses normally through a dungeon then having to learn a new set of attacks for the last boss was very jarring.

Originally I hated it. Then they added the flying mount drop and extra treasure, and it was OK. Then I got "Experienced Drake Rider" and I started to like it. By the time I got "Amber Void", "Ruby Void" and "Emerald Void" it was my second favorite Wrath dungeon.

It's interesting how fairly simple things can cause such headache. You wouldn't think that simply adding "up and down" to the normal "left/right/forward/backward" would cause so much trouble, but some people really struggle with it. I didn't have much trouble with it, though I sure got lost the first few times!I really liked Oculus. One of the things I loved about it was that the dungeon took place "in the world." When I first quested through Coldarra, I was disappointed that nothing happened with that giant structure in the middle of the zone. When I came back later to do the dungeon, I was thrilled to see the that the structure WAS the dungeon. I like being able to "see" the dungeon out in the rest of the world. Lost City is also pretty cool because of this.The drakes were fairly interesting and only 3 buttons. Again, funny how just 3 buttons can cause such a headache. I liked the brief departure from the normal style. I LOVE my hunter, but it is nice to do something different...only for a little while.
