Shadowfang Keep Solo Run Jul 14 2009

The fourth video in the Warcraft Instance Runs series, Shadowfang Keep. One of my favourite instances and one that is often overlooked. I ended up killing a few bosses that aren't necessary for the achievement or to progress through the instance. The ones you need to kill are pointed out using a lower-third graphic in the video.

Gnomeregan Solo Run Jul 8 2009

The third in the series of World of Warcraft Instance Runs. A quick solo run of Gnomeregan. I got lost at one point and that's why there's a cut in the middle, otherwise it's all done in real time.

Gnomeregan is located on the western border of Dun Morogh, not far from Ironforge. It was the home of the Gnomes until it was nearly overrun by a Trogg invasion. In a last ditch effort to rid themselves of the troggs, High Tinker Mekkatorque detonated a radiation bomb, designed by Mekgineer Thermaplugg. Thermaplugg was greedy though and wanted to be High Tinker and through deceit and trickery convinced Mekkatorque to flood the entirety of Gnomeregan with radiation from the bomb thus killing the vast majority of the gnomish race. Many gnomes survived, turning into Leper Gnomes. Most of the troggs survived as well and to this day the fight for Gnomeregan continues between the troggs and the leper gnomes, led by Mekgineer Thermaplugg.

Gnomeregan is a level 28-35 dungeon and you must be at least level 15 to enter. To get the completion achievement you must defeat Mekgineer Thermaplugg, a level 28 elite leper gnome in a mechanical battle-mount.

Stockades Solo Run Jul 8 2009

This is the second of a number of videos I plan to release in the coming weeks showing how to do quick solo runs of all the lower level instances in World of Warcraft.

The Stormwind Stockade is located in the Alliance capital of Stormwind. It is situated in the canal district bordering the Trade District, the Mage Quarter, The Park, and Cathedral Square. It is a level 21-27 instance and you must be at least level 15 to enter. To get the achievement you must defeat Bazil Thredd who is at the end of the eastern hallway.

Entering the instance you will find a hallway with four rooms, two on a side. At the end of the hall is another room and a hallway heading east as well as another heading west, each with seven more rooms branching off. Most of the mobs are captured Defias Brotherhood members ranging from level 22-24 elite, and they only do melee attacks. The only magic user found in the instance is Hamhock, an ogre shaman, so feel free to use Amplify Magic if you have a mage in your group.

Because this instance is so physically small the mobs are tightly packed and they all run away when their health is low. Be sure to keep them from running away into another group. This can cause a level appropriate group to wipe.

Along with Bazil Thredd there are four other bosses as well as a rare spawn. The first boss you will usually encounter is Targorr the Dread,a level 24 elite Blackrock Orc. His location will vary though he is usually in one of the rooms off the first hallway. Heading down to the end of the west hallway you will find Dextren Ward, a level 25 elite human. You should clear out the rooms around him first as he casts fear that could send party members off into other rooms. Also in the west hallway is the rare spawn Bruegal Ironknuckle, a level 26 elite dwarf who drops some nice gear for level 21+.

Retracing your steps you will enter the east hallway and find Kam Deepfury in a room off to you left. He is a level 25 elite dwarf. Continuing to the end of the hall you will encounter Hamhock, a level 25 elite ogre shaman who casts chain lightning. Past him in the last room is Bazil Thredd, a level 25 elite human. He is a lieutenant of Edwin VanCleef (leader of the Defias Brotherhood) and is the leader of the uprising in the Stockade. Thredd will use a smoke bomb that will stun everyone for 4 seconds. Kill him to complete the achievement.
