Attunement for Blackwing Lair may not be easy, but it's simple in what you have to do.
1. Go up to the platform where Blackrock Spire is.
2. Instead of entering the instance, go down the hall to the right. At the end of the hall is a mob that drops a letter. (
3. The letter will begin a quest. (
4. The orb is behind General Drakkisath in UBRS, kill him and touch the orb behind him. Turn in the quest.
Just a small correction- you don't HAVE to kill him, he just needs to be distracted for long enough for you to complete the quest, but it's impolite to risk wiping your group by running off to touch the orb while they're all trying to down Drakkisath.
A small correction to Incendiums' post.
Since the last patch, the mob you speak of (The Quartermaster) was moved from that place. Take a RIGHT from where you would normally enter LBRS/UBRS and a first to the LEFT, down that little corridor.
The ORB to enter Blackwing Lair still resides in the same place.
Order of Bosses in Blackwing Lair
Broodlord Lashlayer -
So if you are entering BWL, you have most likely either killed Domo, or killed Rag. Good job if you have just done so. BWL is honestly nothing close to MC. MC has lots of trash, and than a boss. BWL has Boss, Boss, Big room that leads to Boss, Boss, and than SOME trash, than a boss, trash, boss, little trash, big boss, than final boss. Each one of these bosses need to be done in a special way. For example, the Vael fight WILL leave at least 6 people dead at the end. This is because of Burning Adrenaline, which makes the person have no cast time but explode after some time, taking those around him with him. But relax a bit, for now you should be really worrying about Razorgore.
Class specific loot dropping in this instanceconsits of the Tier 2 armor set (Wrath, Dragonstalkers, Ten Storms, Judgement, Transendence, etc).
Razorgore drops the bracers
Vaelstraz drops the belts
Broodlord drops the Boots
The gloves are dropped randomly by the three drakes
The shoulders drop from Chromaggus
Nefarian drops the chest piece.
Onyxia (Onxyia's Lair) Drops the Helm
Ragnaros (Molten Core) drops the Legs
Also, the earlier bosses have a chance at dropping class-specific trinkets, which are not great for every class, but are overall helpful.
As of the 2.0.1 patch, Before the Storm, The loot seeds have been changed. Alliance can obtain Shaman loot, and Horde can obtain paladin loot. This was not possible before. While inconvinenent, it provides a nice source of Nexus Crystals
Hint for Healer during Razorgore fight.
Keep back to wall.
Talk to group members about your healing area.
Don't waste mana during the first part of fight.
If you get aggro run up the stairs and jump off of balcony.
How many 70s does it take to clear this these days?
Remember... if all else fails, kite it to Vael's room.
Still requires Attument to be able to enter. Same goes for Molten Core, but not for Onyxia.
i two manned ony as a 80 DK w/ my 80 DK friend think i can 3 man this place?
I had a lot of trouble finding the Quartermaster so I am posting this.
The attunement requirement with WotLK release is still in effect. The mob,
has been moved away from the orb. This was done because he interfered with groups forming for BWL raids in the area.
Upon entering the Spire from Burning Steppes, take the chain route to the UBRS portal. Keep going till you are half-way between the entrance and the orb at the other end of the hallway. To your left a ramp goes down. Go down that ramp and he should be right in front.
- He will drop
- Accept the quest it gives you:
- Go to UBRS. Clear to
. Interact with the orb behind him.
- No you do not have to kill the General.
Congratulations. You are now attuned.
you can simply 10 man this with all 80
Just some info for people who like to do this with very small groups - me and some friends successfully did it 4-man except Vael who we had to bring in a fifth for (though it should be doable with an ideal group composition easily. Rogues and Warriors (execute spam once Vael reaches 20%) deal BOATLOADS of damage at 80, especially well geared 80s). We killed Onyxia and got four cloaks made before going into BWL.
Razorgore - Have the tank grab all the adds and tank in the middle of the room. Have the healer stand on top of the tank and pull healing aggro to get the mobs to the tank. Have a dps kill the blackwing mages ONLY (if you only have 3 people, ignore this role). the last player runs around breaking the eggs with razorgore.
Vaelstrasz - Warriors, Rogues, Feral Druids, and DKs are absolutely amazing for this. It could be 3 or 4 manned if you had Warrior/Rogue/Rogue/Shaman (for bloodlust and some heals at the beginning) or possibly even Rogue/Rogue/Blood Death Knight (3-man). Just pop all cooldowns, including Bloodlust. the main tank will be killed 1 minute into the fight, while mana users are targetted and killed really fast with BA. The less mana users the better. As I mentioned earilier, we brought in a fifth member and had one log on an alt making the fight - Warrior/Warrior/Rogue/Shaman/Healadin.
Broodlord Lashlayer - incredibly easy, just stand in a corner so you don't get knocked back.
Firemaw - Put on your cloaks for this one. The only semi-difficult drake out of the three, just run out of line of sight when the debuff stacks above 20ish (although I was healing through it successfully at 41 stacks for a bit).
Ebonroc - Again, use your cloaks here. Cake, only thing is that he heals himself when he attacks the tank, but dps is so high at level 80 it doesn't matter at all, just burn him down.
Flamegor - Another cloak fight. He is the easiest of the three drakes since his special ability is enrage, which can be dispelled by loads of different mechanics now. even if you don't dispel it, healing is already super easy in BWL so it isn't an issue at all.
Chromaggus - In our group - Healadin/Tankadin/Mut Rogue/Elemental Shaman, we got hard mode chrommie (Time lapse breath) and it was hell. We barely managed to kill him after several attempts. The reason we had such a large problem is we didn't have enough sand for the whole group so Bronze was always up, Black was always up since we couldn't decurse, and Red stacks too high to cleanse effectively so we had to rely on the disease cleansing totem to slowly remove it. So if Chromaggus threw up Blue, Time lapsed, and threw up green, it was GG as most of the party got converted. In the end we finally got it just because he didn't end up doing that. Fight took about 10 minutes as he has 2 million hp.
Nefarian - significantly easier than chromaggus. some class calls can be annoying, but they aren't fight-ending. Adds are cake. with everyone having a cloak, no need to bother with freaking out about shadow flame.
And I hope those tips help you and your friends to 4-5 man BWL. When I went looking for info on some of these tactics for low-numbered-groups I found nothing besides "how to 15 man it".
do you need to do a prequest to get in?my guild wants to go get teh achievement but i want to know if i need a prequest
Haven't seen anyone post on what to do once you are attuned -- where is the entrance to this place?
2.5 manned (80 feral druid, 80 holy pal, 75 dk) except Vael, similar strategy to 4-man above.
Chromaggus (Incinerate+Frost Burn) is only boss that caused some trouble. Mostly due to intensive cleanse caused paladin OOM. It is killed after paladin go back and purchased a cleanse glyph.
for Vael, we go in with 5 man all dps (2rogue 2dk 1bear) downed before bear tank killed by 1st BA.
Do u still need 2 do the quest in LBRS b4 u can get into UBRS?
It would have been awesome had myself and my 1 friend trying to farm in here had any idea that you have to kill a boss with 400k HP right off the bat.... what a terrible place to "farm" anything.
For the sake of saying it, we did the pre-quest and even the stupid ring quest (didn't read that it was useless till we were done....) before hand, which took about 2 hours of wandering and bumbling through BRS (I hate that damn dungeon).
We did however, kill drakk with only he (lvl 80 DK) and myself (lvl 70 Rogue), neither of which are excellently geared... so that wasnt too bad.
Curious, doing a little personal research, when did Blizzard release BWL?
I'm never able to get into this raid anymore due to the error, "Additional instances cannot be launched, please try again later."
I realise this means I need to wait, but I literally sit at the stone for over an hour and then usually lose my whole raid and I still never get in.
Does anyone know what other instances or raids this instance server is tied to? So I can maybe inform the people in those instances to hurry up, or at least get a time estimate of when I'll be able to enter?
As of 26/7. You still need the attunement, however, providing a Warlock is in the instance, he/sheis able to summon people INTO the instance, regardless if they're attuned or not.
Nostalgia, My personal opinion here but does anyone else feel that Wotlk instances just lack, what Old World had?
