    I don’t like killing Bosmer mobs but the atmosphere of Selene’s Web is what I want all of Grahtwood to emulate.

    I mean, vampires, no? Here let me recite some lines:
    "Death to the living, Death to the living"
    "ATAVAR, WHERE ARE YOU"
    "There is someone alive here"

    I love killing the Whisperer...hands down my all time favorite undaunted.

    Selene's - man, we have to help some scummy folks, but the torturous murdering son-of-an-Altmer who hires us to go after Selene ... I would pay crowns to kill him.
    Tenesi Faryon of Telvanni - Dunmer Sorceress who deliberately sought sacrifice into Cold Harbor to rescue her beloved.
    Hisa Ni Caemaire - Altmer Sorceress, member of the Order Draconis and Adept of the House of Dibella.
    Broken Branch Toothmaul - goblin (for my goblin characters, I use either orsimer or bosmer templates) Templar, member of the Order Draconis and persistently unskilled pickpocket
    Mol gro Durga - Orsimer Socerer/Battlemage who died the first time when the Nibenay Valley chapterhouse of the Order Draconis was destroyed, then went back to Cold Harbor to rescue his second/partner who was still captive. He overestimated his resistance to the hopelessness of Oblivion, about to give up, and looked up to see the golden glow of atherius surrounding a beautiful young woman who extended her hand to him and said "I can help you". He carried Fianna Kingsley out of Cold Harbor on his shoulder. He carried Alvard Stower under one arm. He also irritated the Prophet who had intended the portal for only Mol and Lyris.
    ***
    Order Draconis - well c'mon there has to be some explanation for all those dragon tattoos.
    House of Dibella - If you have ever seen or read "Memoirs of a Geisha" that's just the beginning...
    Nibenay Valley Chapterhouse - Where now stands only desolate ground and a dolmen there once was a thriving community supporting one of the major chapterhouses of the Order Draconis

    I really like the dialogue in Spindle 2, some memorable quotes right there. It also introduced some fun mechanics such as Bloodspawn's ground pound (used to be a healer check), the waves of mobs and the circle you need to follow in the Praxin fight, or the vampire feeding at the last boss. While Selene is larger and more diverse, I don't enjoy it quite as much.

    Even though the atmospehere in Selene's Web is more beautiful, I voted for Splindle because it's the most quotable dungeon, and chat convos where someone posts a random quote from the dungeon and people respond with others, never fail to make me smile :)

    Just NOT Selene's. Did it once, and hated the story so much I never did it again.

    Being railroaded in helping despiccable Carindon is one of the great insults in ESO.
    At least they made up for it a tiny bit with Lair of Maarselok, but still...

    Hmmm a truly poor selection

    Spindle 1 is a vaguely adequate first dungeon... “who wanders into my web...” I do like the way so many players die to the AoE and one shot from the final boss.

    Spindle 2 is by a mile the easiest hard mode in the game. You can light attack the final boss to death and you’ll never die (and spoiler here, neither will the boss’s crucified bloodbags).

    Selene’s is the home of the heavy sack and the in your face big bear hat. Terribly, terribly dull. And long.

    Spindle 1 wins cos it’s fastest.

    Spindle 2 does have its charms with the dialogue, but I really started appreciating Selene's Web after LoM came out. None of the dungeons here have much interesting going on fight wise (maybe Praxin Douare), so for me Selene as a character now trumps the general events of Spindle 2.

    This one was hard for me, both have really good/funny lines (“ATAVAR! ATAVAR!” “Selene protect! Selene destroys”) and both have spider ladies. I only ended up giving it to Selene because the Monster Helm is pretty good.

    This Bosmer was tortured to death. There is nothing left to be done.

    I have been paranoid about the new stuff, as the mechanics often overwhelm me...but dang, now I gotta do this. I have hated that story for so so so long.

    LoM admittedly is not a dungeon I would recommend if you're not fond of the direction mechanics have taken. You'll definitely need to run it with friends, good vibes, and patience. I just feel like Selene wasn't the most interesting character from Web alone, and LoM made me really dig her. There was also a nice bit of lore in her Meet the Character posted around LoM release time that I personally found intriguing.
