Blizzard Details First 8 Warlords of Draenor Dungeons
Blizzard recently released information about the eight dungeons that will arrive when the latest World of Warcraft expansion launches.
Players can raid four dungeons that are spread between level 90 to 99, and four level 100 only dungeons.
The eight dungeons, Bloodmaul Slag Mines, Iron Docks, Auchindoun, Skyreach, Shadowmoon Burial Grounds, The Everbloom, Grimrail Depot, and Upper Blackrock Spire, won’t be the only dungeon content available in Warlords of Draenor.
In a blog post last year, Blizzard confirmed that they plan to add “new dungeon content beyond the initial expansion release” in response to Mists of Pandaria player feedback.
In the mean time, check out a brief summary of the first eight Warlords of Draenor dungeons below.
Bloodmaul Slag Mines (Level 90-92, Frostfire Ridge)
Bloodmaul orges are carrying out a “brutal” mining operation with slaves they acquired from Draenor. Although the Slag Mines is reputed for its ore and gemstones, rumors have it that the orges are really searching for an “ancient relic of immense power,” and players will have to stop them laying hands on it.
Iron Docks (Level 92-94, Gorgrond)
Players should be prepared to attack elite infantry units and their “trained beasts” as they seek to destroy the Iron Hordes’ naval power before it sets sail.
Auchindoun (Level 94-97, Talador)
The holy mausoleum of the draenai featured in The Burning Crusade as a level 65-70 dungeon. In Warlords of Draenor, Auchindoun comes under threat from the Shadow Council.
Skyreach (Level 97-99, Spires of Arak)
This dungeon is the stronghold of high arakkoa. They have tapped ancient technology from their forebears, and are looking to turn its power on those who would stop them. Of course, its up to WoW players to throw a wrench in their plans.
Shadowmoon Burial Grounds (Level 100, Shadowmoon Valley)
Remember the Lich King? Before the Burning Legion got to him, he was the orc shaman Ner’zhul. As Warlords of Draenor features an alternate reality, Ner’zhul is not transformed, and players will get the chance to face him in this dungeon.
The Everbloom (Level 100, Gorgrond)
The Kirin Tor wizards conjured up a portal in that leads from Stormwind in Azeroth to Gorgrond in Draenor to keep the Alliance in well-supplied. Unfortunately, the outpost is being over run by killer plants, and of course it is up to WoW players to save the day.
Grimrail Depot (Level 100, Gorgrond)
Love to watch films that feature fights on moving trains? This Warlords of Draenor dungeon is set on a massive moving train carrying “entire battalions of troops and artillery,” along with a fearsome railgun that can lay waste to Shattrath.
Upper Blackrock Spire (Level 100, Blackrock Mountain)
An original WoW dungeon. In Warlords of Draenor, players will take on the Iron Horde and stop them from using their doomsday weapon. The first three of the five bosses can be fought in a special level 90 version of the dungeon that is available via Patch 6.0.
