Hands down the worst instance in Wrath, if not the game. Related achievements are also horrible. I don't have my drake because this instance sucks so bad, and I have no desire to return.

I signed up just to give this dungeon a bad rating.

I signed up just to give this dungeon a bad rating.

Hypothetical conversation:
Person A: This dungeon sucks!
Person B: I don't think it's so bad, why do you think it sucks?
Person A: I don't know, it just Sucks!

While the site does provide a very subjective feedback/rating system, stating why something sucks is much more helpful to others than just stating that it is a "bad dungeon".

Hate it. Only been once in heroic to get the achievement. Will never go again.

this instance is not for those who rely on better gear to cover lack of skill.

Only reason people hate this instance is because they don't want to bother learning how to use the drakes.

Developer: So me and the guys came up with this idea of the instance in which you travel from platform to platform on drakes and then fight a big drake while on a small drake...

Producer: And...?

Developer: That's it!

Producer: Love it, let's do it.

I usually can't get a group for oculus even among most hardcore Daily heroic grinders.

When ever occulus is the daily heroic I strangely never have time to do it... how odd!

The only Heroic with any challenge, I hate not the dungeon but the other player!

I suck so much at drake riding, but I still think this is one of the better 5mans in the wotlk. Using the drakes really bring some challenge.

A great idea poorly executed.

I've got some bad memories about occulus. (and by some i mean a lot)

Is it just me or can people not spell the name of this instance properly? It's Oculus not Occulus.

While this instance was a major pain when it was released, it has become much less of a hassle now that the drakes scale with your gear. As far as difficulty is concerned, Oculus is not really that complicated, if you take the time to figure out which drake should be performing which task, at which time. Once you have determined that, the instance becomes relatively easy, and can be farmed successfully.

A 5-man dungeon for raiders: the last boss requires good players who can learn how to do new things, rather than facerollers; and the 2nd and 3rd bosses can also require a lot of skill. To me, this is the most consistently interesting and challenging 5-man out there.

That said, trying to get the achievements done here before the drakes started scaling with item level was brutal. Drake scaling should've been in from day one.

See no Oculus. Hear no Oculus.

Do no Oculus.

it was so awful when it first came out everyone (including me) slogged away until they scraped through then refuse to ever set foot in the place again. Getting a group for the daily heroic is impossible so no idea if its better with gear scaling. .

Prior to patch 3.3 this instance was the bane of my existence. Not necessarily because of the drakes, but just because of poor design. It looks cool, but it doesn't play well. However, with patch 3.3, I find this instance tolerable, and not as bad. :)
