WotLK Dungeons – Comprehensive Guide

WotLK Dungeons by MMOPIXEL

In World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, you’ll find several dungeons with different level requirements. The expansion adds plenty of new content to the game, and now it has a second life thanks to the Classic server. Each dungeon is filled with monsters, valuable loot, and some lore about Lich King himself. As in every MMO, every dungeon has level and item requirements before you might enter. You can complete each of them alone, but we strongly advise taking someone with you to make things less difficult.

We’ll cover each dungeon entirely, including all rewards and bosses you will face. Luckily, the time you have to spend inside each dungeon is very rewarding, and you’ll never feel disappointed. Apart from experience, you’ll be rewarded with several powerful items to help you progress further. With our guide, your journey to reach level 80 will be much easier and very satisfying.

  • Location: Howling Fjord

  • Bosses: Prince Keleseth, Skarvald the Constructor, Dalronn the Controller, Ingvar the Plunderer

Utgarde Keep is located in Howling Fjord, atop the cliffs. It’s the easiest dungeon but beware of underestimating the waves of undead here. Don’t pull too many of them, or you'll get easily overwhelmed. The path is pretty straightforward, so there’s nothing to explain here. Bosses aren’t too hard either, only vampiric prince Keleseth and Ingvar the Plunderer might trouble you.

The Nexus is located in the Borean Tundra, in a magical place named Coldarra. Here you will find remnants of alliance or horde expedition, depending on your faction. Your main task is to defeat Keristasza, the great dragon imprisoned in the middle of the palace. This dungeon is non-linear; you can choose between going left or right. Nevertheless, you have to defeat everyone before facing Keristasza, so it won’t matter much.

You’ll find the entrance to Azjol-Nerub through the Pit of Narjun located in Dragonblight. This dungeon is completely linear, similar to Utgarde Keep. There are three boss fights in total. First, you’ll have to deal with waves of Nerubians in the catacombs until you reach Gatewatcher. 

After defeating him, you will find a passage to the city where the second boss awaits – Hadronox. Once again, you're going to reach the depths of Azjol-Nerub and face the last boss. The king itself is quite challenging, but it gets easier if you manage to avoid his mighty spikes.

Upon entrance to the kingdom, you will be met with several waves guarding the first boss, Elder Nadox. Upon progressing, you’ll find another vampiric prince, Jedoga Shadowseeker, who is aided by countless cultists.

After dealing with the Twilight Cult, the servant of the old gods awaits. The faceless Herald Volazj is especially dangerous due to his mind tricks. He can trick your group into perceiving themselves as enemies making all of you vulnerable to friendly fire.

Drak’Tharon stands as a keep for Lich King’s forces. Since it was a hold of the troll empire, you’ll find plenty of corrupted trolls inside. Ultimately, you’ll reach the mighty Trollgore, chief of all the corrupted.

Your next encounter is going to be lich Novos, who is attempting a dark ritual. Deal with his minions before focusing on him, as he’s pretty vulnerable without them. After defeating him, you’ll have to deal with King Dred guarding the top of the keep. Once you have slain the beast, you can finally face the Prophet Tharon’ja.
