The only achievements you can get in this dungeon are the ones for completing. There are no achievements awards for individual boss encounters for making him to do something. Classic raids and dungeons only had one mode and that was normal. Heroic level versions of the dungeon started in the Wrath of the Lich King expansion.

Shadowfang Keep is a low level dungeon that was roughly for Alliance what Deadmines was for the Horde. What I mean by that, is that to get to the dungeon, the group would have had to have travelled through many highish level zones to get to. It would have meant quite a few deaths to get there. If you was trying for the Ironman achievement, you could forget it. The Ironman achievement is to get from level 1 to max without dying and only wearing gear that is uncommon (white or grey). With the creation of Looking For Group tool, it is no longer a pain to get to the dungeon, just use the tool to get to the dungeon. Shadowfang Keep is the dungeon that is furthest dungeon from an alliance flight point after the destruction of Southshore.
The location of Shadowfang Keep is to the north of the Great Gilneas Wall that blocked off the city and zone of Gilneas from the rest of the Azerothians. Shadowfang Keep is the home of Lord Godfrey who put the curse on the Gilneans and made them turn into Werewolves. The object of the dungeon is to get to the top and kill Lord Godfrey, an undead practitioner of the dark side of magic.
During 'Love is in the Air' week, based around Valentines Day and takes place around the 14th February every year. In addition to a ring that drops drops during this time, the Big Love Rocket also drops for lucky patron.
Worgens are the main antagonists in the dungeon and also protagonists, as they appear every so often to give you a new challenge and suggest where to go.
Baron Ashbury must be killed before you can progress, there is no skipping this boss. When the boss is dead, the door to the next section will then open. The main thing you need to be aware is that he'll incapacitate you all and drain the energy from you. When all the energy has been drained, he'll let go off you and you'll rapidly heal back most of it. The healer will need to do the rest. Immediately after the life drain, a dps needs to interrupt the next spell which is an AOE spell.
Once the boss is dead, the Worgen soldiers who were captured are released and will let you through to the next stage. The Worgen won't help you, hope you didn't think they would.
Baron Silverlaine is a spectral human who will fight you in the dinner hall. You should clear the room of all trash before beginning the fight otherwise it will be pretty hard. During the fight, he'll summon two spectrals, one at 70% health and the other at 35% health. The spectrals will always be a worgen. Each worgen wiill have its own attack moves whether it be ranged or melee.
Commander Springvale will pace up and down the top of the hallway. There are two ghostly guards by him but they can easily be taken out without starting the boss. If you attack one guard, the other guard will attack also. You may like to take out the two guards that are by the exit as they can be pulled easily accidentally.
The main thing you need to worry about with this boss is Desecration, he'll target a player and poison the ground under him. All the players need to move out of the green area quickly as damage will occur otherwise.
When you enter the room, he'll have his back turned to you making a potion. When you get close or hit him, the fun starts. Lord Walden will throw potions all round the room. When he throws green potions, you need to stop moving and when he throws white potions you got to keep moving.
Lord Godfrey is the undead monster that is responsible for the Worgen curse so do take pleasure in having killed him. When you first enter the room, kill the two abonimations in the room first. One person should climb the stairs and then pull the boss down, there's no need for everyone to go up, there's no achievement up there.
During the fight, he'll summon creatures to attack which are easy to kill. The most important move is to do a pistol barrage, avoid this at all cost. If you can avoid being hit by the pistol barrage, you win an achievement for the boss.
The Crown Chemical Company are three undead warlocks that only appear during the Love is in the Air seasons in Februrary. You do not need to run to the dungeon to engage them, they are accessible from the LFG feature. There are three undead Apothecaries to kill which are spread out around the area, you can kill them together or individually, the choice is yours.
You need to keep moving round as they drop poison on the ground. At the end of the battle, you get a Heart-Shaped Box where you have the chance of gaining the Big-Love Rocket mount which is said to drop in 1 in 3333 and is pretty rare.
