A spooky castle built into the hill. Lots of bosses, crowded rooms, a secret lever in the basement crypt, sinister stuff all around. Cool when it was 10 man too.

I definitely recall Scholo with some fondness because of the Paladin's Charger Quest. There's something special in that undead-filled festering school of the damned... besides flesh-rot, I mean.

Scholo also happened to require quite a bit of farming for the Insane Title FoS, but somehow, it never really bothered me. I liked the layout a lot, and I felt it was challenging, even at much higher levels, just because of the various ways you can do it.

To note, at level 80, pulling the entire first main room and line-of-sighting them around a corner makes for some very impressive AoE dps. Looting the subsequent mass grave, however... not so fun.

This instance is one I want to try at a higher lvl. Doing on the lvl par is hard, and even with an 80 running a group it can be a pain in the ass.
The closing gates however gave me a headache lol I'm never taking my hunter in there again!

The Scholomance is housed within a series of crypts that lie beneath the ruined keep of Caer Darrow. Once owned by the noble Barov family, Caer Darrow fell into ruin following the Second War. As the wizard Kel'thuzad enlisted followers for his Cult of the Damned, he would often promise immortality in exchange for serving the Lich King. The Barov family fell to Kel'thuzad's charismatic influence and donated the keep and its crypts to the Scourge. The cultists then killed the Barovs and turned the ancient crypts into a school for necromancy known as the Scholomance. Though Kel'thuzad no longer resides in the crypts, devoted cultists and instructors still remain. The powerful lich, Ras Frostwhisper, rules over the site and guards it in the Scourge's name - while the mortal necromancer, Darkmaster Gandling, serves as the school's insidious headmaster.
