Customer Reviews:

  • Good book for WoW:BC
    This work is an improvement over the first volume that covered the instances for the original game. The layout and text are more user-friendly (and easier on the eyes) plus it lays out the instances in the order in which you are likely to encounter them, as in from lowest-level to highest. The strategy tips for (most) of the encounters are also highly helpful.

    What prevents this book from being a top-rated work are the same problems found in the first one. For one, with Blizzard constantly updating content, not all the material in the book is current, such as adding or subtracting encounters in instances or lowering how difficult a particular encounter is. In addition, not all the instance write-ups really give detailed advice on how to defeat it or offer alternatives to what is given; the section on Dark Portal: Black Morass readily springs to mind. Finally, the book suffers from the same lackidaisical proofreading as the first one, with numerous typographical and spelling errors that simply should not be in a published work.

    Overall, this book is an excellent reference for those who want to advance and succeed in the game as quickly as possible. Just remember to use other online references to supplement it for game updates and other perspectives on how to run the instances, or you may be in for a few nasty surprises....more info
  • A must - have for serious raiders and Guild Masters
    This is a great reference book to help you find those out - of - the - way places in dungeons some quests send you to. If you're a serious raider this book is the book you need. I have found it invaluable time and again for my raids as well as information for my guildies....more info

  • Pretty thorough dungeon guide.
    For those of you who bought World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade Official Strategy Guide (World of Warcraft) and were subsequently disappointed, let me say that this guide is MUCH more better, much more inclusive. Every 5 man instance, the only 10 man at the time (Karazhan), and all 25 mans, including Black Temple, are discussed here, as well as the big raid bosses. I was initially concerned due to this title being delayed, but am now happy, since they took the time to incorporate Black Temple.
    Each instance includes boss info, loot info (although loot info can change), as well as useful strategies. The included dungeon maps is also very useful for those who don't have mods for dungeon mapping.
    The only instance currently not included is of course Zul'Aman, since that only came out in November 2007, after publication of this guide. But, if you're ready for Zul'Aman, you can always get up-to-date info from various websites.
    For completeness, they included a good guide for Naxxramas, but unfortunately, hardly anyone visits that zone anymore, so it's almost a wasted effort. Can't blame Bradygames for trying, though!

    Definitely recommended if you're new to Burning Crusade, since this expansion is all about the instances!...more info
  • Continuation of first dungeon guide
    I just recieved this today. When I bought this I was not sure if it was a totally new guide, or a continuation of the other one. Well, it is a continuation of the first guide if anyone is wondering.

    It contains: Hellfire Ramparts, Blood Furnace, The Shattered Halls, The Slave Pens, the Underbog, The Steamvault, Manatombs, Auchenal Crypts, Sethekk Halls, Shadow Labyrinth, Escape from Durnholde Keep, The Dark Portal, The Mechanar, The Botanica, and The Arcatraz.

    It also contains: Gruul's Lair, Magtheridon's Lair, Serpentshrine Cavern, The Eye, Battle of Mount Hyjal, Black Temple, and Naxxramas.

    Plus, it contains, Karazhan, and Doom Lord Kazakk, and Doomwalker.

    In addition, it has the usual armory, and dungeon basics.

    Anyway, hope that helps for anybody unsure of what this guide contains. :)...more info
  • Surprisingly Good Guide
    Now, if you're frugal, you will always go to Bosskillers or atleast WoWWiki for boss info. Heck, I have dual monitors and I do it all the time. But I picked this up on a lark and was pleasantly surprised. I took it through Gruul's and Magtheridon's tonight and the recommendations were very insightful.

    Highly recommended. And quite cheap right now at $16.50...more info
  • A must have for high level instances
    This book is beyond priceless if you use it to its potential. it has helped my organize better raids, get the most out of each dungeon and help me be a more successful toon.

    Would recommend if you are above level 60! otherwise, get the original dungeon companion till then. Happy questing!...more info
  • Great book for the instance runners
    I really like this series of books, they are well written and do a good job of explaining what is going to happen inside the instances (dungeons). They give little hints here and there that are a great help. On dungeons that require you stand in a certain spot they tell you where and give pictures. The loot tables are great help if you are looking for certain items. Good book and a great read. I always have it when I run through dungeons. Downside is as Warcraft is updated the book will not have current info and loot tables, so web sites will have the most current info but the boss battles still remain the same. ...more info
  • World of Warcraft
    Doesn't list heroic instance drops. Loot isn't very organized with what drops. Other than that, fairly solid information. I just wanted a copy so I had something to read at work...more info
  • Very useful
    If you spend a lot of time, as I do, researching as you play. You will find this extremely helpful before you get in a dungeon and get ganked....more info
  • WOW Dungeon Companion 2
    It's good. Highly glossed pages. Lots of info in it but.. it wasnt exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a layout of the dungeons in more detail.. all secrets exposed. I just found an overview here and not the strategy edge I was seeking. ...more info
  • Great mid-run reference.
    This has instantly proven itself as an indispensable in-game reference. When running instances with a "PUG", it provides and instant guide for those "impossible" bosses.
    Very easy to use and reach required information quickly....more info
  • Mods not Paper
    As numerous others have pointed out, print products age very quickly when related to an online game. If you are serious about raiding, skip this and download/install Atlas Loot Enhanced and Deadly Boss Mods. Read up on and get the phat lewtz. This product is superfluous but nice if you want to read while offline i suppose.

  • WoW DC2 Book
    The WoW Dungeon Companion, vol 2 book is a great book to assist the average to new gamer in the different advanced dungeons of the Outlands. This book along with the vol 1 is a great collection of the instances you can run with groups. It is very helpful in understanding the different characters you will go up against in battle and overall must kill to get the loot they will drop. Plus it gives you great insight on the dungeons itself, how to position the group and where to go if you need a guide due to going in the wrong direction. The book also gives you the different types of loot certain bosses carry and that you can possibly receive if you defeat them. I would highly recommend this books to all along with the other book available on for the World Of Warcraft. ...more info
