So I'm level 38 so I haven't seen all of the dungeons yet. But I will say I think my favorite one so far is Haukke Manor. The area is just so much different from those that come before it. Not to mention the final boss can be challenging. :)

What are your favorite dungeons so far?

I would have to say Castrum Meridianum. Haven't done Praetorium yet, but Castrum Meridianum is quite fun. Although it's pretty straightforward and not that hard, there are lots of different kinds of events you have to do.

Haukke Manor, definitely. Just the whole atmosphere of it is awesome, not to mention the layout and the path through it. Would have enjoyed a bigger second floor.

Sastasha looked awesome but wasnt too exciting outside of that. And the only neat thing about the Copperbell mines were the Wall Giants breaking through.

But Haukke Manor takes the cake.

lol, i gotta follow suit and go w/ Haukke Manor. If you actually read all the storylines, Haukke Manor is actually really good. Still looking forward to longstop.

EDIT: To follow up, i think i love Haukke the best because it's not an actually 'dungeon', it's like your a team of paranormal investigators. Love it! Haven't gotten many mage gear drops tho, i believe that Manor is racist to mages.

The Wanderer's Palace. Good loot, guaranteed 1 Darklight drop from last chest, and of course...Tonberry King. :3

I just loving running dungeons in general. I'm always dutyin' up for any dungeon i unlock. You get so much from them; meet new people (mostly good, a few bad), exp (always nice), gear (that i can either hold for another job or trade in for GC seals), and experience using my current class.

Wanderer's Palace, level 50, and the final dungeon in the game, Praetorium .It's one of the best dungeons I've ever played.

Actually, I noticed a lack of mage drops too. During one Tam Tara run, our tank walked out in a brand new outfit. Out of six dungeon runs, I've seen 3-4 pieces of mage gear drop. I have a nice shield and a pair of earrings, but that's about it.

I just played Castrum for the first time last night. We beat it, it had to be done. Now, if you enjoy 8 man heavy straightforward two hour grinds on fairly simple bosses for little reward (no drops and only 100 stones?) then this one is for you. Not to mention you have to be level 50 so it yields no xp. Personally I like the dungeons where the chance of reward are much higher.

I personally like the stone vigil because the dragon at the end drops some insane weaponry. But I am hearing good things about Aurum Vale.

yeah, the guy next to the guy that sells GC weapons and armor will take back armor and weapons (just green or purple dungeon drops) and trade them for seals. I would only do it if it is unconvertable and you absolutely dont need it anymore (unique to one class at low level that you already have to 50, but unsellable, untradable, and unconvertable) because the amount of seals you get for approxiately a level 40 item (for example) is only about 100.

The only dungeon (so far) where I've seen more mage drops than melee is Brayflox's Manor. Got it done last night and we got battlemage hands, legs, waist and feet.
