Dire Maul Dungeon Hub & Official Preview

Recommended Posts

rYufd5c.jpg

Dire Maul is now live and we've updated our guide section with the Dire Maul Dungeon Hub, which contains links to individual guides for all wings (North, East, West), quests found in the zone, the Quel'Serrar weapon questline, and the Shen'dralar reputation.

Dire Maul is now open ahead of Phase 2 launch; check out our Dire Maul Dungeon Hub to get started! Below is the official preview of the dungeon by Blizzard.

Blizzard LogoBlizzard (Source)

Built thousands of years ago to house the kaldorei’s arcane secrets, the formerly great city of Eldre’Thalas now lies in ruin, writhing with warped twisted forces. Competing covens once fought for control of Dire Maul’s corrupted energy, but they have since settled into uneasy truces, choosing to exploit the power within their own territories rather than continue to battle over the entire complex.

Located in Feralas, Dire Maul is a sprawling 5-player dungeon encompassed within three wings. Adventurers can explore its ancient corridors for fun and profit and even infiltrate the entrenched ogre tribe on a Tribute Run to claim powerful rewards and buffs. You can also battle your faction-mates in the free-for-all outdoor PVP arena “The Maul” within the Broken Commons outside of the dungeon. It’s a great way to hone your PvP skills among friends.

HOW TO GET THERE:

  • The closest flight path for Horde players is Camp Mojache. From there, then run west until reaching a road in the High Wilderness that forks to the North.
  • Alliance players will fly into Feathermoon Stronghold as their closest flight path then run east until reaching a road in the High Wilderness that forks to the North.

Bosses: 16
Level Range: 54-60 (Recommended 55-60)

QUESTING

There are many quests available to undertake within Dire Maul beginning at level 54, but it’s recommended that players reach level 55 to have a higher chance of success. Dire Maul is a particularly dangerous dungeon for the unprepared and you’ll need dependable teamwork to make your way through all three of its wings.

GETTING KEYED UP

If you want to go further than the East Wing of Dire Maul, you’ll need to procure a couple of additional keys, have a rogue with a high enough lockpick skill, use a Large Seaforium Charge, or use a Truesilver Skeleton Key (which can be created by blacksmiths) to make your way into the two additional wings.

To get a key to the remaining areas of the dungeon, you’ll need to track down (and chase down) the imp Pusillin in the East Wing who can drop Crescent Keys. He’ll lead you on a merry chase, but don’t be fooled when you think you have him cornered at last.

You’ll need an additional key to make it all the way into King Gordok’s room as well— the Gordok Inner Door Key. This key can be looted from Guard Mol’dar in the Gor’dok Commons.

Dire Maul East

Warpwood Quarter

Lethtendris (Level 57)
Dire Maul’s warped energy drew Lethtendris from afar, giving her an unbearable craving for arcane magic. Using the sinews and ligaments of sacrificial victims, she constructed a web to siphon, the corrupt power out of the east wing. To her delight, she discovered that the device has the capacity to gather vast reserves of overwhelming strength, enough to destroy all her enemies.

The Shrine of Eldretharr

Alzzin the Wildshaper (Level 58)

Alzzin the Wildshaper seeks nothing less than the total corruption of Feralas, but until he discovered the Shrine of Eldretharr in Dire Maul, he had little success. With the power of enslaved ancients at his command, Alzzin concentrated the vitality of the surrounding forest into his lair, allowing him to manipulate it at will

Zevrim Thornhoof (Level 56-57)
Desperate to show his worth to the Burning Legion, Zevrim Thornhoof told his master she could enslave the formidable ancients who still roamed Dire Maul. When his own power proved insufficient, Thornhoof turned to other living creatures for additional energy, butchering them atop his sacrificial altar and harvesting their essence in their final, agonizing moments.

Hydrospawn (Level 57)
When the satyr Zevrim Thornhoof sought to control the elementals in Dire Maul, he focused on Hydrospawn, who calmly resided in the pool beneath his altar. As he performed his profane sacrificial rituals, the elemental grew agitated and restless, striking out at Thornhoof’s demonic minions. As the years passed, Thornhoof used his victims’ energies to whip Hydrospawn into an unbridled fury, little by little binding its will to the satyr’s commands.

Dire Maul West

Prison of Immol'thar

Immol’thar (Level 61)
In a desperate bid to restore the power and immortality they lost when the Well of Eternity was destroyed, the Shen’dralar summoned a demon into the western wing of Dire Maul and captured him within a force field, allowing them to use the void terror’s energy for their own spells. Unable to fight back or even move for nearly 10,000 years, Immol’thar could only watch and wait for the day he might break free and rend the flesh of his captors.

Prince Tortheldrin (Level 60-61)
After the Well of Eternity’s destruction, Prince Tortheldrin maintained control over the surviving Shen’dralar by imprisoning a demon in the ruins of Eldre’Thalas and letting his subjects siphon its strength. The exposure to demonic power twisted Tortheldrin’s mind, and when the creature faltered, the prince ordered the deaths of many of his vassals so only he and his most fanatical followers would be left to enjoy the corrupt energy.

Court of the Highborne

Magister Kalendris (Level 59-60)
When Prince Tortheldrin demanded the slaughter of the majority of his subjects, his most loyal lieutenants were tasked with executing his will. Magister Kalendris murdered many unsuspecting Shen’dralar without hesitation, but one of the doomed elves mortally wounded him during a destructive battle. Despite his demise, Kalendris’s spirit still roams Dire Maul as a defender of Tortheldrin’s rule.

Capital Gardens

Illyanna Ravenoak (Level 60)
Illyanna Ravenoak, along with her faithful companion Ferra, was once Prince Tortheldrin’s most valued hunter, until she refused to carry out her leader’s order to execute her friends. As punishment, he killed Illyanna and her bear, but he used his demonic power to bind their spirits to their bodies, condemning them to remain in Dire Maul’s undead protectors.

Tendris Warpwood (Level 59-60)
Tendris Warpwood was a staunch defender of Eldre’Thalas, his heart inexorably entwined with the fate of the city. When the Sundering Shattered the land, his resolve never wavered, but as corruption seeped into the ruins over the next 10,000 years, so too did it infect the ancient’s spirit.

Dire Maul North

Gordok Commons

Guard Mol’dar (Level 58-59)
Mol’dar is a zealously loyal guard from the Gordok ogres. He is convinced King Gordok gifted him with a pair of enchanted gauntlets that have enabled him to become his people’s arm-wrestling champion for six years running. In truth, King Gordok threw the powerful armor away: Mol’dar simply found it first.

Stomper Kreeg (Level 59)
One more than one occasion, skulking assassins have met their doom after accidentally disturbing Kreeg’s ale mug. Though he’s often passed out drunk on duty, nothing rouses the ogre into a berserker fury faster than the sound of his precious drink splattering on the stone floor.

Guard Fengus (Level 59)
Ever since Cho’Rush the Observer told him he was destined to meet a mate while on duty, Fengus has spent almost every waking moment patrolling Gordok territory.

Guard Slip’kik (Level 59)
Some might think Slip’kik is merely cautious, but he’s also lazy. Rather than challenge King Gordok directly, Slip’kil tinkers with traps and old broken magical devices hoping to eventually deliver a coup de grace without an ounce of risk or a drop of sweat.

Captain Kromcrush (Level 61)
Even among ogres, Captain Kromcrush is infamous for his hair-trigger rage toward anyone who dares to insult him or King Gordok. He crushes dissent ruthlessly, but he has still less patience for those who continue to spread the rumor of his torrid affair with a gnoll long ago.

Cho’Rush the Observer (Level 60)
Cho’Rush doesn’t usually take sides, but when Ulrok was rising to power, it was clear there was nobody who could challenge him. The king quickly appointed Cho’Rush as his chief adviser, believing that his twin heads would make him twice as resourceful as the average ogre.

King Gordok (Level 61-62)
To rule the Gordok ogres, one must simply proclaim oneself king…and then destroy all who might disagree. King Gordok—then merely known as Ulrok—solidified his power by convincing a dozen of his people’s strongest warriors to challenge the king at the same time. The wild melee left most of the contestants dead or wounded, and Ulrok’s blade easily cut down the survivors and the battle-weary king. To this day, Gordok ogres speak in hushed tones about the “Day of Da Blood.”

Fortune Favors the Brave

Dire Maul has plenty of challenges to undertake and loot to glean from within its halls if you know where to look and includes many Horde, Alliance, and class-specific quests.

  • Orb of Deception: The Orb of Deception is a world drop that can be found throughout Azeroth, but many players choose to farm for it within the halls of Dire Maul due to the number of available creatures to kill. With this random drop, you can change your identity to that of the opposite faction. Just beware that not all are easily fooled and when engaging in PvP, your name will still appear as an enemy despite how you look.
  • Librams: There are three Librams available to earn via quests within this dungeon.
  • Royal Seal of Eldre’Thalas: Each class can complete a quest available at level 60 within Dire Maul to receive a beneficial trinket. You’ll need to loot a book from the creatures within to turn in for your reward.
Class Quest Reward
Druid The Emerald Dream Royal Seal of Eldre’Thalas
+10 to Fire Resistance, Passive: Increases healing done by spells and effects by up to 44

Hunter

The Greatest Race of Hunters Royal Seal of Eldre’Thalas

+10 Fire Resistance, Increases damage and healing done by magical spells and effects by up to 23.
Warrior Codex of Defense Royal Seal of Eldre’Thalas
+10 Fire Resistance, Passive: +200 Armor

Mages can undertake the quest, “Arcane Refreshment” to learn the spell, “Conjure Water” which gives them the ability to conjure 10 bottles of crystal water at a time. You’ll need to defeat Hydrospawn in the east wing of Dire Maul to loot the Hydrospawn Essence and turn it in to Lorekeeper Lydros in the Athenaeum.

Warlock and Paladin Epic Mounts

Both warlocks and paladins can earn an epic mount beginning at level 60—but they’ll need a little help from their friends to claim their new rides.

Warlock players will be able to follow a series of quests to earn the Dreadsteed of Xoroth epic mount. The questline begins with Mor’zul  Bloodbringer in the Burning Steppes where he’ll detail what you’ll need to complete in order to summon and capture this steed.

For paladins who have reached level 60, you’ll begin your venture to claim the epic Charger mount with Lord Grayson Shadowbreaker in Stormwind starting with the quest, “Ancient Equine Spirit.”

Paying Tribute

There’s more than one way to get through the North wing of Dire Maul. You can take part in what’s known as a tribute run. The goal is to avoid killing all the bosses up to King Gordok. Once you’ve reached the king, you can kill him and claim your place as the new king of the ogres.

To create the suit, you’ll need the following items: Bring 4 bolts of Runecloth, 8 Rugged Leathers, 2 Rune Threads, and 1 Ogre Tannin to Knot Thimblejack and he’ll create a Gordok Ogre Suit for you. This will allow you to disguise yourself as one of the Gordok Ogres.

Forging Quel’Serrar

Last, but certainly not least, paladins and warriors can create and claim the epic weapon, Quel’serrar.

To begin your quest to add this weapon to your armory, you’ll need to collect Foror’s Compendium of Dragon Slaying from within Dire Maul. You’ll need to turn it into Lorekeeper Lydros in the Athenaeum within the dungeon. He’ll give you A Dull and Flat Elven Blade. Your next step will involve a confrontation within Onyxia’s Lair where you’ll need her to breathe fire on the Unfired Ancient Blade, then drive the blade into her defeated corpse. Once you’ve completed your epic quest, you’ll receive Quel’Serrar.

What are you waiting for? Dire Maul is now open and waiting for your party to plunder its ancient halls!

      Today marks the launch of Phase 2 in WoW Classic. Azuregos and Lord Kazzak have been enabled along with the PvP Honor System, allowing players to earn PvP ranks and acquire Honor Sets. Check out our PvP guides to get started!
      With the arrival of the new PvP Honor System, we'd like to take the time and highlight our WoW Classic PvP guides:
      Classic Druid PvP Guide Classic Hunter PvP Guide Classic Mage PvP Guide Classic Paladin PvP Guide Classic Priest PvP Guide Classic Rogue PvP Guide Classic Shaman PvP Guide Classic Warlock PvP Guide Classic Warrior PvP Guide Here's the official preview of both the world bosses and the PvP Honor system posted by Blizzard.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Get ready to put your skills to the test in WoW Classic. The PvP Honor system and world raid bosses Lord Kazzak and Azuregos are now available.
      LORD KAZZAK
      Gather a group of your best trackers and fighters to venture into the Blasted Lands. Lord Kazzak resides deep in the Tainted Scar and patrols the area, ready to smite all who dare cross his path. Prepare yourselves for a fast and furious battle against time and watch out for his Shadow Bolt Volley, which causes massive amounts of raid-wide damage.
      Location: Tainted Scar—Blasted Lands
      Suggested Level: 60
      Players Suggested: 40
      Associated Quests: Priest—While players have a small chance to get the The Eye of Shadow as a random drop from elite demons in the world, Lord Kazzak is guaranteed to drop it. Following the quest, The Balance of Light and Shadow to its completion will reward the weapons Benediction or Anathema.
      AZUREGOS
      A member of the Blue Dragonflight, Azuregos makes his home in Azshara, guarding the magical artifacts left behind there. You’ll want to gather a group of comrades-at-arms to withstand his frosty reception and lay claim to the items he protects. To the victors go the spoils, and for some Hunters this means laying claim to the Ancient Sinew Wrapped Lamina. This item has a low chance to drop on elite blue dragons, but is a guaranteed item drop from Azuregos.
      Location: Azshara
      Suggested Level: 60
      Players Suggested: 40
      PVP HONOR SYSTEM
      The PvP Honor system has arrived in WoW Classic, opening the way for players to climb the ranks and earn PvP rewards.
      CLIMBING THE LADDER
      Facing enemies who are within 10 levels of your own character and defeating them will earn you Honorable Kills. These Honorable Kills will help you advance in the PvP system and unlock access to a variety of rewards, such as a PvP trinket, cloak, potions, and more.
      Not all Honorable Kills are valued the same, however. Killing the same enemy multiple times will result in a decreasing amount of Honor gained until they aren’t worth anything more through the end of the day, when the system resets the diminishing returns.
      Diminishing Returns from repeated kills on a single target are as follows:
      1st: 100% of Honor 2nd: 75% of Honor 3rd: 50% of Honor 4th: 25% of Honor 5th (and beyond): 0% Honor Diminishing Returns also apply to killing faction leaders.
      Honorable Kill values are also weighted by the defeated player’s own rank and level. You’ll earn more Contribution Points by defeating players who have more PvP experience under their belt and have reached a higher rank than by defeating players who are new to the battlefield. Each week your rank will be updated based on your activity relative to the other members of your faction, but climbing to the top won’t be easy—it will take regular participation to maintain or increase your rank.
      You can also gain a large number of Honor by killing city faction leaders in Darnassus, Ironforge, Orgrimmar, Stormwind, Thunder Bluff, and the Undercity. Once Battlegrounds are available in WoW Classic, these will also provide Honor.
      FALLING FROM GRACE
      You will be given Dishonorable Kills for killing civilian NPCs which immediately impacts your Honor rating. Every dishonorable kill costs you some of the honor that you’ve earned in previous weeks, making it difficult to reach the higher ranks as long as you have any dishonorable kills counted on your record at all. These will appear in the Honor tab immediately.
      TRACKING YOUR METEORIC RISE
      You can check your status in the character information window (C) in the Honor tab. This shows your current rank as well as your honorable kills for the current day, the previous day, the week, the previous week, and over your character’s lifetime.
      There are 14 ranks, and each rank provides access to new rewards. You’ll need to head over to the Officer’s Barracks in Stormwind or Orgrimmar to purchase your new items.

      The new PvP Honor System and World Bosses are now live. Check out our WoW Classic PvP guides to get started with Phase 2.

      It seems we'll have to wait a bit longer for the much needed key ring feature that will free up thousands of inventory slots across Classic! Blizzard said the addition will come in the "first patch" to the Classic client and later clarified that a patch is not the same thing as a phase, as they can simply "turn on" features in the phases, while a patch has to change the game client.
      Phase 2 is coming this Thursday, November 14th, bringing with it the PvP Honor system and world bosses, and every realm has already switced single layer, today in fact.
      Key Rings (source)
      Yes – the Keyring will come to WoW Classic with our first patch to the game client later this year.
      We don’t yet have a certain date for the patch, but we’ll let you know as soon as we do.
        Correct. We’re able to turn on content such as Dire Maul or World Bosses without having to change the game client and require downtime the way a patch does.
      Sorry for the confusion.

      Players were abusing line-of-sight rules in Gadgetzan, so Blizzard gave the guards in Gadgetzan, Booty Bay, and Everlook longer range on their ranged attacks in today's hotfixes, even though the new range differs slightly from their reference WoW 1.12 client.
      Blizzard also said they will be taking action against players who exploit the line-of-sight rules, so we might see suspensions going out later today.

      Resolved an issue that caused Survival Hunters’ Mending Bandage (PvP Talent) to heal more than intended on non-player targets. WoW's 15th Anniversary
      Korrak’s Revenge The amount of Timewarped Badges rewarded for winning or losing Korrak's Revenge have been doubled from 10 and 5 to 20 and 10.  The repeatable quests “Irondeep Supplies,” “Coldtooth Supplies,” and “More Armor Scraps” no longer reward Timewarped badges. Many quests in Korrak's Revenge now are daily quests and reset daily. They are as follows: “Irondeep Supplies,” “Coldtooth Supplies,” “Towers and Bunkers,” “Capture a Mine,” “The Graveyards of Alterac,” “Armor Scraps,” “Capture a Mine,” and “Alterac Valley Graveyards.” Developers’ note: While acquiring supplies from the mines and mounts for the ram and wolf riders contributes to the battle, we agree with the feedback that these can be a bit repetitive. To that end, we have converted a number of quests within the Battleground into dailies and removed the reward for the repeatable turn-ins. The guards in Gadgetzan, Booty Bay, and Everlook now have a significantly longer range on their ranged attacks. Developers’ note: We’re seeing some players attack others by abusing line-of-sight rules in Gadgetzan. This disruption is against our Terms of Service (as it was in 2006) and we’re taking action against players who exploit this game mechanic. While this new range differs slightly from original WoW 1.12, it better enforces the authentically intended consequence of PvPing in a goblin city by challenging the attacker to fight, die, or escape the guards. The Discombobulator Ray will now correctly dismount mounted enemy players. Abilities that provide a damage increase to the next auto attack (e.g. Heroic Strike and Raptor Strike) will now properly break crowd control effects if the ability was queued before the crowd control was applied. Corrected an issue that prevented pets from attacking a target who entered stealth after the Attack command is used. Corrected an issue with the Gnomish Cloaking Device that caused it to incorrectly drop the player from combat when used. November 8, 2019
      Guards will now correctly be more willing to assist players in PvP combat who have Friendly or higher standing with them. However, they will continue to not assist players with Neutral standing. Corrected an issue that was causing Onyxia to fail to clear the threat of the primary target of her Fireball ability. October 22, 2019
      Fixed a bug that caused creatures such as Solenor the Slayer to misbehave when pursuing the player. Groups of creatures that commit to combat as a group will now all continue to pursue whenever any one of them are struck by a player attack or ability. October 16, 2019
      The buffs obtained from the guards in Dire Maul North after completing a tribute run will no longer stack.

      Molten Core speed runs ahead of Phase 2 seem to be really popular these days and Salad Bakers from Gehennas-EU managed to clear the raid in 28 mins and 29 secs, which is currently the world's fastest reported clear of the 40-player raid.

      More details about the run are available on Warcraft Logs.

      According to the latest update by Blizzard, free character moves from select US realms will be only available to Horde characters.

      I’ve updated the original post here.
      Free Character Moves from Fairbanks, Herod, Incendius, Kromcrush, Skeram, and Stalagg are only available to Horde characters.
      We had some unexpected technical issues when we first enabled this service a couple of hours ago, and we’ve been working through those.
      Thank you!
      It appears Blizzard ran into some technical issues when they enabled the free character moves today, but they still plan to have all realms on one layer tomorrow, and launch Phase 2 on November 14.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Next week, we will take multiple steps to prepare for the release of the PvP Honor system and World Bosses at 11:00 a.m. PST on Thursday, November 14. Here’s an outline of those steps.
      Monday, November 11 – Updates to Free Character Moves**
      At 11:00 a.m. PST on Monday, we will update the Free Character Move service.
      Free Character Moves from all realms to Sul’thraze (Brazil) and Loatheb (Mexico) will be closed at this time. Free Character Moves will no longer be available from Atiesh, Benediction, or Yojamba (Australia). The following Free Character Moves will be available: FROM TO FACTION Arugal Felstriker   Bigglesworth Anathema   Bigglesworth Arcanite Reaper   Bigglesworth Earthfury   Blaumeux Anathema   Blaumeux Arcanite Reaper   Blaumeux Earthfury   Faerlina Anathema   Faerlina Arcanite Reaper   Faerlina Earthfury   Fairbanks Anathema Horde-only Fairbanks Arcanite Reaper Horde-only Fairbanks Earthfury Horde-only Fairbanks Heartseeker Horde-only Grobbulus Anathema   Grobbulus Arcanite Reaper   Grobbulus Deviate Delight   Herod Arcanite Reaper Horde-only Herod Heartseeker Horde-only Incendius Anathema   Incendius Arcanite Reaper   Incendius Earthfury   Kromcrush Arcanite Reaper Horde-only Kromcrush Heartseeker Horde-only Mankrik Azuresong   Mankrik Windseeker   Pagle Azuresong   Pagle Windseeker   Skeram Arcanite Reaper Horde-only Skeram Heartseeker Horde-only Stalagg Arcanite Reaper Horde-only Stalagg Heartseeker Horde-only Sulfuras Anathema   Sulfuras Arcanite Reaper   Sulfuras Earthfury   Whitemane Anathema   Whitemane Arcanite Reaper   Whitemane Earthfury   We strongly suggest that any players planning to use a Free Character Move do so as soon as possible. Free Character Moves may be disabled without warning at any time.
      Tuesday, November 12 – All Realms to One Layer
      With scheduled weekly maintenance beginning at 7:00 a.m. PST on Tuesday, all WoW Classic realms will be set to a single-layer. We expect some realms listed above to experience long queues after this step. We especially encourage players on Arugal, Faerlina, Herod, and Whitemane to use the Free Character Move service to avoid excessive queues.
      Thursday, November 14 – PVP Honor System and World Bosses
      At 11:00 a.m. PST on Thursday, the update will occur for all realms in this region. The PvP Honor system will come online, and it will become possible for Azuregos and Kazzak to spawn.
      Thank you very much!
