The recommended level range to run this dungeon on Normal is 59-63. Heroic mode will require Level 70 and the Flamewrought Key Icon Flamewrought Key to enter.

This dungeon will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete with an average group. Hellfire Ramparts is commonly abbreviated as "ramps".

In this guide, we will cover dungeon quests, the layout of the dungeon, an overview of trash mobs, tactics for each boss, loot that can be obtained, and ideal group compositions.

Hellfire Ramparts Quests

Hellfire Ramparts Entrance Location

Hellfire Ramparts and nearest flight paths

Conveniently, all dungeons in Hellfire Peninsula are located in one centralized location: Hellfire Citadel. This structure can be easily found in the very center of the map and can be reached by using one of the two connecting bridges on either the north or south side.

The dungeon portal is located at coordinates (47,53). The summoning stone is located directly next to the Hellfire Ramparts dungeon portal.

Layout of Hellfire Ramparts

Notable Ramparts Trash

In this section, we will briefly go over each of the trash mobs that may pose a threat to you in this dungeon.

5.1.

Bonechewer Hungerer

  • Disarm IconDisarm

Be mindful of your threat if using a Warrior tank as an early Disarm IconDisarm can make it difficult to pick these up.

5.2.

Bonechewer Ravener

  • Kidney Shot IconKidney Shot

Try to pull these separately from other packs as the stun can make you take much more damage if tanking multiple mobs.

5.3.

Bonechewer Destroyer

  • Mortal Strike IconMortal Strike
  • Knock Away IconKnock Away

It is recommended to either kill these first or manage them with some form of crowd control as the Mortal Strike IconMortal Strike deals heavy damage and cuts healing received in half. Try to tank with your back against a wall to avoid the knockback.

5.4.

Bleeding Hollow Scryer

  • Fear IconFear
  • Shadow Bolt IconShadow Bolt

Carefully utilize line-of-sight with these packs as you will be dealing with four of these at a time. Curse of Tongues IconCurse of Tongues, interrupts, crowd control, and general stuns are advised for these as a well-timed Fear IconFear on your healer or tank can lead to either deaths or a wipe.

5.5.

Bonechewer Beastmaster

  • Uppercut IconUppercut
  • If not killed quickly enough, 3 Shattered Hand Warhounds will also be summoned to aid them.

These enemies are immune to most forms of crowd control. They should be focused down quickly to avoid summoning the wolves. CC other mobs on the pull and focus the Bonechewer Beastmaster.

5.6.

Hellfire Sentry

  • Kidney Shot IconKidney Shot

These are linked with the final boss. When you kill the last Sentry, the boss will fly down and engage you.

6.

Overview of Ramparts Bosses

Here we will give you a full rundown of what you can expect from each of the bosses found here on both Normal and Heroic difficulties as well as the items they drop.

6.1.

Watchkeeper Gargolmar

  • Mortal Wound IconMortal Wound
  • Surge IconSurge
  • Retaliation IconRetaliation

This boss is fairly easy with Mortal Wound IconMortal Wounds serving as a sort of DPS check. Surge IconSurge can be avoided by stacking up behind the boss or spreading out as ranged DPS. Melee attackers should be cautious to avoid dying to Retaliation IconRetaliation when the boss reaches low health.

6.1.1.

Hellfire Watcher

  • Heal IconHeal
  • Renew IconRenew

Two of these adds come when Watchkeeper Gargolmar is engaged. Either use crowd control on them or kill them first as they will do a large amount of healing over time. Prioritize interrupting their Heal IconHeal.

6.1.2.

Loot from Normal

Omor the Unscarred

  • Summon Fiendish Hound IconSummon Fiendish Hound
  • Treacherous Aura IconTreacherous Aura
  • Shadow Whip IconShadow Whip
  • Shadow Bolt IconShadow Bolt
  • Demonic Shield IconDemonic Shield

Make sure to spread out properly to avoid taking damage from the debuff applied by Treacherous Aura IconTreacherous Aura. Melee players need to be aware if they have the debuff to avoid damaging other melees, including the tank.

The Fiendish Hounds can quickly pile up and become a problem if not handled properly. It is possible to CC them with spells such as Banish IconBanish or Intimidating Shout IconIntimidating Shout, but you will still need to deal with them after the boss. The most ideal thing to do is to just keep killing them as they spawn in.

If you spread out to avoid unnecessary damage from the aura and keep the Felhounds under control, this fight is very easy.

  • Fireball IconFireball
  • Cone of Fire IconCone of Fire
  • Bellowing Roar IconBellowing Roar

Nazan will fly around casting Fireball IconFireballs until Vazruden the Herald reaches 50% health. Make sure to quickly focus down Vazruden as Nazan is landing. If Vazruden is alive and uses Vazruden's Mark IconVazruden's Mark while Nazan is on the ground, this will cause Nazan to fixate on a target and melee attack them, ignoring the tank completely. Make sure to avoid fire patches on the ground, don not be in front of the dragon, and keep the tank topped up before the Bellowing Roar IconBellowing Roars come out. After killing both bosses you will be able to loot the chest in the back and claim your rewards.

7.

While not required, having one form of crowd control will make things go smoother. Bonechewer Destroyers are the ideal target of any available CC to help sustain healer Mana. This is especially important when doing Heroic in lower gear.

The pulls in Hellfire Ramparts are generally small, so no significant amount of AoE is needed. Having at least one form of reliable interrupt is an added bonus for the packs of four Bleeding Hollow Scryers. Tremor Totem IconTremor Totem from a Shaman also helps with those packs, as well as with Nazan.
