On dungeons

Fabad, my DK, is now on the brinks of the Dread Waste, the last zone of Pandaria. The introductory zone had us meeting and chilling out with a peaceful and fun loving race, the pandareans. But soon after this we witness the Sha escaping from they're prisons and the ressurection of the ancient ruler of Pandaria, the evil Mogu. Deeper in the continent the land is ravaged by the Yaungol and the Mantids. It seems like Pandaria is under a lot of strains.

Anyway, remember that I told you Fabad was there for the riches? Well, he found some running new dungeons as Frost. The first two are Temple of the Jade Serpent and Stormstout Brewery. There is two chain quests that culminates in those dungeons and you got to see the layout and some mini-boss fight before actually running the place with a party. I found the end boss of the temple trickiest, party members must dps the adds quickly before they explode.

The dungeon of Mogashu Palace is the one where Fabad found abundant treasure (unfortunately he only managed to pick a fraction of it, must be the dungeon tax). That instance went well,  it has ton of mobs, a hidden passageway and lots of gold lying around. The tank even took the time to show the party where some ancients relics were hidden.

The last dugheon is Shado-pan Monastery. The mobs has some interesting mechanics like Volatile Fiend exploding and Fragment of hatred needing to be purified. Last boss was scary but we managed to one shot it.

Fabad soloed and grouped for a couple of rare along the way. I used my Blood offspec for survivability but I kept my dps gear. At level 90, I guess most of the classes and specs would be able to solo them.There is abilities that need to be avoided or interrupted, so it can be a challenge.

Pro-tip for DK: If you got a weapon upgrade, take the time to travel to Ebon Hold (back in Eastern plagueland) to apply Rune of the fallen crusader.
