Not convinced dungeons are worth it? Here’s a WoW Classic guide.
While raids are the crowning achievement of every adventurer in Azeroth, dungeons are the lifeblood of the World of Warcraft metagame, especially in Classic. This is true not just because it gives players WoW Classic gold, but also for a wider variety of reasons. Having said all that, here’s why you should run dungeons, as well as which ones to run.

The Many Rewards of Dungeons
There are many ways to level up from 50 to 60. Among them, the most common is by questing. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon to find yourself having trouble with fellow players doing the same quest as you, in turn impeding your progress.
For that, we go to the dungeons, which have a wide variety of advantages compared to questing. First off, we start at a rather popular reason: it’s instance-based. It means it’s only going to be you and your friends in it within a certain time. Entering the dungeon starts a session where it’s only you and your party. Finish it and you gain rewards, and then you can run it again.
Another reason to do dungeons are the rewards. While you can also earn rewards from questing, a lot of dungeons have more handsome rewards. And unlike quests that you can only do once, you can run a dungeon as many times as you want, which means you can get rewards again and again.
Or better yet, you’ll eventually get the rare WoW Classic items you didn’t get last time. Even if you get items you don’t need, you can sell them to people that will buy them. You can put up rare WoW Classic mounts for sale and you’ll make bank. Play your cards right and you won’t just be talking about WoW gold.
We’ve already mentioned about how you can run dungeons again and again. It’s definitely a good thing, but it has no merit by itself. Thankfully, dungeons give out good rewards, so there is incentive to do repeated runs. Sure, they’re not as good as those from the raid, but they’re free either way and you can get lots of them since you can do the dungeon runs over and over again. In fact, dungeon runs are a good way to farm WoW Classic items to sell for WoW gold.
On top of all those things, dungeons also hand out experience points – a lot. By sheer repetition, you can get lots of XP, allowing you to blaze your way through the level cap, which is now 70.
Which Dungeon to Crawl
With the question of why out of the way, it’s time for the next ones: which dungeons should you run? Well, that depends on your level. After all, this guide is written with players wanting to grind in mind.
If you’re anywhere between level 58 to 60, the first dungeon you should try out is the Hellfire Ramparts. It’s easy to run, but at the same time, if you feel unprepared or finding it a bit difficult, you can always check out online guides. Its relative ease is also the reason why it’s popular, and this popularity is the reason why it’s not hard to find fellow players that want to run this dungeon.
At level 61, you can either continue running Hellfire Ramparts, or proceed to the Blood Furnace, which is also located in the Hellfire Peninsula. And that’s just the start, as you can actually keep running dungeons until you’re at level 70. It will definitely be repetitive, but at the same time, it will be definitely fast. If you feel like the monotony is worth the speed, then you should stick to this path. It’s going to be worth it, as there’s going to be a lot of loot.
Once you’ve hit level 70, you can start doing Hardcore Dungeons. As the name suggests, they are the much harder versions of the dungeons they share the name with. It’s a general rule that harder content means better rewards, and the Hardcore Dungeons abide by those rules all the same. However, they need a bit, or rather, a lot of time and effort in unlocking, which will have you talking to and currying the favor of the corresponding quartermaster of specific dungeons.
Hopefully, after all that, you’ve realized that focusing on dungeons as content is a great way to approach Burning Crusade Classic. We’re not saying you should ignore raiding, but dungeons are very much worth running on a regular basis. Follow Techwaver for more!
