1 Low-Level Instance Those instances are special areas where a group of players can interact privately within a dungeon. Instance dungeons tend to feature the most difficult and rewarding content. Since the majority of the players had achieved the 70th level in our traces, the low-level (20-30 level) instances, such as Blackfathom Deeps, Ragefire Chasm, Razorfen Downs, Razorfen Kraul, and Shadowfang Keep (all in S2), can no longer offer satisfying rewards. Such low-level instances thus become less popular, and therefore, players do not revisit the areas frequently.
