The very first instance I ran, back in 2004. Felt pretty epic back then, even though we were complete noobs. We wiped repeatedly and eventually left before completing it. Awesome for linen and wool cloth farming when you're higher level.

The Deadmines are expansive, winding tunnels dug out under Westfall and part of northwestern Stranglethorn Vale. It is the lowest level Alliance instance, and is populated by members of the Defias Brotherhood. Its entrance can be accessed in the town of Moonbrook in southwestern Westfall while its exit is located in the western part of the Dagger Hills near the ocean. The Deadmines is the center of the Defias operation, led by the ambitious Edwin VanCleef, who is constructing a juggernaut at the bottom of the mines with the aid of the goblins. Many quests occur in and around the Deadmines.

Prior to the First War, the Deadmines were the greatest gold production center in human lands. However, they were abandoned during the First War. During that time, Lord Lothar ventured into the perilous Deadmines on a quest to obtain the Tome of Divinity but was captured by a band of ogres and held captive for 20 months. He was ultimately rescued and successful in his mission. It was also to the dungeons below the Deadmines to which Blackhand's daughter Griselda fled with the ogre Turok. Both were slain by an orcish raid. At this time, many slimes inhabited the dungeons but have not been encountered lately.

My first visit here was me, cluelessly venturing in with my human paladin. I still had no concept of Tank, healer, dps or of Need/Greed.

I accidentally ninja'd the hammer from the ogre boss and, seeing how angry everyone was, hearthed out and didn't log on for a few weeks.

I came back later on my, now much more knowledgeable, draenei mage (female, of course) and had a great time.

This was the first instance I ever did in an MMO (I didn't even know what an instance was then) it will always hold a special place in my heart.

Not done much - too far out of the way for the horde

Hero mode coming soon...
"You landlubbers are still tougher than I thought, I'll have to improvise again!"

Before WoW, i was playing Silkroad Online (a free2play asia-grinder). This game also has areas that are called "dungeons". But they aren't instanced, it just means that there are stronger mobs that give more exp. In my 1st DM run back in 2006, i saw what a REAL dungeon was! That was one of the moments that made me switch to WoW.
