    Default DoV heroic difficulty order

    I run with a static group of usually 3 or 4 people and are working on gearing up in DoV instances. What is the order of dungeon difficulty?

    Putting just the ones I've cleared in order from easiest to hardest ->

    Ascent
    Shadowed Coridoors
    Umbral Halls
    Pools (sandworm boss is very annoying with low numbers)

    somewhere lower:
    Haunt of Syl'Tor <- didn't clear this as we got to Tserrina and she wiped us a few times

    Where do the rest like Spire, CCC, the KD instances fit compared to Haunt?

    Unless you're doing the access quest, Tserrina isn't really worth the trouble. There is better loot available elsewhere for the amount of effort she takes and the likelihood that the script will bug out on you.

    With that in mind, Haunt is a quick and easy run just to hit the other bosses and get the shards, though it lacks a daily shard quest -- So there's the caveat.

    My order would be:

    Ascent
    Shadowed Corridors
    Pools
    Haunt
    Umbral Halls
    Fortress Spire
    Iceshard
    Throne
    Temple

    I only place Umbral Halls so far down the list because the length of the zone makes it quite annoying.

    The second-to-last bosses in Fortress Spire, Throne, and Temple all take more coordination than the final bosses (in my experience), so if you can handle them, you'll definitely be able to push through the rest of the zone.

    My only experience with Crystal Caverns was soloing what I needed in there for the heritage quest, so I can't rank that one properly.

    Collapse easier than haunt and harder than pools in my experience. Final named requires some coordination, retards assisting people to burn adds and is essentially a rather low dps check.

    And while I agree 2nd last named in temple and spire is harder than the final, I don't agree for throne of storms.

    And yeh, make a point of never doing umbral halls in my opinion, there won't be many upgrades in there compared to ascent, pools and pqs while it's a horrible place to do.

    Agree with the list though.

    Yeah, not sure what I was thinking when I wrote that. Tribunus-Prime Hagandr is definitely the hardest in there. Not sure what the "second-to-last" boss would even be for that zone since you can go any order. Good catch, thanks.

    Technically, The fight in front of the Throne is the second to last fight .. becasue there is a fight underneath the throne. But he is definately the Boss.

    Heh, I'd written up a reply where I explained that, but I figured I would just come across as trying too hard to not be proven wrong And yeah, he drops the chest with the true loot and the shard, so it only seems right to ignore the little quest-initiated event after him.

    I'd be curious to see Drunder zones ranked as well from those that have done them.

    Spire of rage, strategist's stronghold, tower of tactics, all harder than all release stuff apart from hard mode torz.

    I'd probably slot elements of war in after ToT then HM ToRZ and then HM EoW. Then again, I've never actually managed to kill the final named in hm torz or EoW even if i haven't been for a while.

    Thanks guys that's great help.

    Without raid gear can we expect to be able to progress through all of the heroics (except maybe the challenge mode ones) ?

    We did spire last night and it was piss easy apart from the 2nd last boss who killed the tank a few times before we got it down.

    I guess it's on to CCC then the KD instances!

    Well they just removed Crit Mit requirements from the last of the heroic zones. Of course they didn't remove the Crit CHANCE requirements, so it might still take a month to kill mobs if your Crit Chance is < 250% for some of the harder zones.

    And if you don't have a mezzer for ISK, it's gonna be pretty painful.

    Second to last named in throne is the one that turns into a lion, he has fabled on his loot table and thats how gninja did it for each of the zones (second to last and last one having fabled). Same as the Prince being second to last named in ISK.

    ISK doesn't need a mezzer, you can body pull each and every giant by his lonesome so long as your group has restraint and you know the agro range of the giants fairly well. But since they removed the stuns and KB, who bothers pulling only 1 anymore.

    EoW (easy) is definately easier than HM ToRZ, which in turn is easier than HM EoW. EOW easy should be doable in gear gained from drunder, wouldn't expect it to be a walk in the park though.
