Tonight I decided to solo Hellfire Ramparts with my hunter just for kicks and, of course, for the achievement.
As a solo player (I never tire of saying this, apparently), I had never done Hellfire Ramparts before. As a consequence, I didn't know what to expect but I knew it would be easy since this is the first Outland instance that awaits fresh players who arrive at Hellfire Peninsula.
To cut a long story short, as a level 80 this instance is a piece of cake. Not only is it very short (there are only 4 easy bosses) but the mobs can be AOE'd successfully. Furthermore, it is linear, meaning it doesn't branch like other instances so in this regard it is very noob-friendly.
If you hope to make gold by farming it, think again. I made less than 40 gold, even after I sold the 4 blue items that the bosses dropped.
If you haven't done this before, make sure you grab the Weaken the Ramparts quest given by NPCs at Honor Hold or Thrallmar. My mistake is that I forgot all about this quest and now I have to go back there if I want to complete it. A minor nuisance though, since the instance is so easy.
Former WoW player, current Diablo 3 fanatic, I love the finer things in life such as PC games, beer and computers. While playing a good game is a spiritual experience, blogging about it is almost equally rewarding.
