Serpentshrine Cavern Attunement Guide
The Tier 5 raid Serpentshrine Cavern, or simply SSC, is one of the most iconic raids in the history of World of Warcraft. There, you face off against the Coilfang Matron Lady Vashj, one of Illidan's two lieutenants in Outland. Further, it is the second raid in TBCC requiring an attunement. This process is fairly easy once you have the Tier 4 raids on farm. It takes place in Karazhan, Gruul's Lair, and the Heroic version of The Slave Pens dungeon. Read on if you want to learn about the attunement process for SSC.
Requirements for Getting Attuned to Serpentshrine Cavern
In order to complete the Serpentshrine Cavern attunement questline, the following attunement quests for Karazhan and Heroic The Slave Pens must be completed. You can find the Karazhan attunement walkthrough on the Karazhan Attunement page. In order to enter the Heroic Slave Pens, you have to be at least Revered with the Cenarion Expedition to buy the Reservoir Key.
As one part of this quest requires you to kill Nightbane, one player of your Karazhan group needs to be able to summon him. Our Karazhan Quests guide contains the questline required to summon this boss.

Going Into the Slave Pens
Skar'this the Heretic is a Naga captured inside the Heroic version of The Slave Pens. He can be found on the middle position of the three areas marked q on the map below. You need to defeat Mennu the Betrayer in order to get to this quest NPC. Feel free to consult our full Guide to The Slave Pens if you need more information about it.
After accepting the quest, Skar'this the Heretic wants you to retrieve the Earthen Signet from Gruul the Dragonkiller and the Blazing Signet from Nightbane.
Defeating Gruul and Nightbane
Return to the Slave Pens
After defeating both Gruul the Dragonkiller and Nightbane, you need to return to Skar'this the Heretic in the Heroic Slave Pens and turn in the quest. Skar'this will then cast a blessing on you that allows you to enter SSC permanently.
