The recommended level range to run this dungeon on Normal is 67-70. Heroic mode will require Level 70 and the Auchenai Key Icon Auchenai Key to enter.

Sethekk Halls will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete with an average group. This dungeon is commonly abbreviated as "SH" or "Seth Halls". The dungeon is located on the Eastern side of the Auchindoun structure.

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.

The Sethekk Halls Quests

Before heading into Sethekk Halls, we advise you to get all the dungeon quests related to it. To make this process easier, we have written a separate guide for the quests and their chains.

Sethekk Halls Entrance Location

Sethekk Halls and nearest flight paths

Conveniently, all dungeons in Terokkar Forest are located in one centralized location: Auchindoun. This structure can be easily found in the middle of the Bone Wastes.

To reach the bottom of this structure you will need to either fly down, take one of the passages found along the outside, or carefully jump from ledge to ledge. The summoning stone can be found in the very center of Auchindoun. Sethekk Halls is the dungeon found on the East side of Auchindoun.

If your faction controls the spirit towers in Terokkar Forest, you will get Spirit Shard Icon Spirit Shards from each boss you kill inside this dungeon. These can be exchanged at the nearest town for various rewards.

Layout of Sethekk Halls

Sethekk Halls layout

Sethekk Halls is a fairly straightforward dungeon. There are a few packs of trash mobs that can be skipped by following the arrows shown in the pictures here. On the first floor here you will fight your way through a few trash packs and work your way toward the staircase behind Darkweaver Syth, leading to the second level of the dungeon.

Here we have the second floor of the dungeon. This floor of the dungeon is very easy to navigate, only having one path available. Anzu can only be summoned by Druids that have obtained their Swift Flight Form IconSwift Flight Form, and only on Heroic difficulty. After defeating Talon King Ikiss, players can walk down the pathway behind him to quickly return to the start of the dungeon.

Notable Sethekk Halls Trash

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

5.1.

Sethekk Guard

  • Thunderclap IconThunderclap

These are fairly straight forward but it is worth mentioning them so you know to tank them away from the ranged group as the Thunderclap IconThunderclap damage can add up quickly when hitting multiple party members.

5.2.

Sethekk Initiate

  • Spell Reflection IconSpell Reflection

This is a basic mob that casters need to be careful on to avoid the spell reflects.

5.3.

Avian Darkhawk

  • Sonic Charge IconSonic Charge

You will want to focus these down early as the Sonic Charge IconSonic Charge can cause high damage if left alive for too long.

5.4.

Time-Lost Controller

  • Summon Charming Totem IconSummon Charming Totem

You will want to either kill these first or use some form of crowd control on them such as Shackle Undead IconShackle Undead as the Charming Totem acts as a mind control for the most part. You can also kill the Charming Totem to quickly free the charmed player.

5.5.

Sethekk Oracle

  • Arcane Lightning IconArcane Lightning

Try to interrupt or stun these to prevent the Arcane Lightning IconArcane Lightning as the silence can cause issues if timed well.

5.6.

Sethekk Ravenguard

  • Enrage IconEnrage

These are very straightforward enemies, but it is worth mentioning that they deal high damage and you will be fighting two of them at a time. Use any debuffs you can such as Curse of Weakness IconCurse of Weakness to reduce the damage they deal to your tank.

5.7.

Cobalt Serpent

  • Wing Buffet IconWing Buffet

These are also basic caster-type mobs. They are fairly weak but it is worth mentioning that they have a large knockback, so make sure to face them away from the group and tank with your back against a wall.

5.8.

Sethekk Prophet

  • Fear IconFear
  • Summon Arakkoa Spirit IconSummon Arakkoa Spirit

These are one of the most dangerous mobs in the dungeon. You will want to use any crowd control you have on these, or kill them first as they have two very threatening abilities. The Fear IconFear itself can cause a wipe if your tank gets feared while getting hit by multiple mobs or gets feared into another pack. Ranged players can avoid this by standing max range.

The Sethekk Spirit that gets summoned upon the Prophet's death can also cause a wipe by itself as it deals very high damage to anyone nearby. When the Prophet is near death, all players must be ready to move away from the spirit that will spawn. It will move slowly and chase down a random player; do not get in its path.

5.9.

Sethekk Talon Lord

  • Talon of Justice IconTalon of Justice

These are only a threat because of the stun from Talon of Justice IconTalon of Justice. Dispel it if you can, especially if it is on the tank.

5.10.

Avian Warhawk

  • Sonic Charge IconSonic Charge
  • Swoop IconSwoop

These are an improved version of the earlier Avian Darkhawk. They do a bit more damage and now have a cleave attack that stuns anyone hit. Face these away from the group and kill them early or use crowd control on them to prevent the stun combos.

6.

Overview of Sethekk Halls 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.

Darkweaver Syth

  • Flame Shock IconFlame Shock
  • Shadow Shock IconShadow Shock
  • Arcane Shock IconArcane Shock
  • Frost Shock IconFrost Shock
  • Chain Lightning IconChain Lightning
  • Summon Elementals — Darkweaver Syth summons a wave of 4 elementals whenever he drops to 90%, 55%, and 15% health. The elementals are fire, frost, shadow, and arcane types and are immune to their own school of magic.

You have a few different ways of handling this boss. The first way is essentially an all-out nuke of the boss, ignoring the adds and killing the boss as quickly as possible. Any form of crowd control should be used on the adds as they spawn, such as Psychic Scream IconPsychic Scream, Intimidating Shout IconIntimidating Shout, or Frost Nova IconFrost Nova. This is done much easier with a party full of geared Level 70s and a Bloodlust IconBloodlust / Heroism IconHeroism.

The safer way is to kill the adds one at a time as they are summoned. They have low health and will die quickly, so just pick them off one at a time until they are all dead. It is still advised to ignore the last group of summoned elementals as they will spawn in when the boss is at 15% health.

If you ignore the adds and do not use any form of crowd control on them as mentioned earlier this fight can be very hard for a healer to keep up as the adds amplify the damage taken by the party. Use your best judgment to determine whether or not you can nuke the boss down or need to kill the elementals.

Item Required Level Item Type Slot
Blessed Tanzanite Icon Blessed Tanzanite BoP Gem Misc
Pristine Fire Opal Icon Pristine Fire Opal BoP Gem Misc

6.2.

Anzu

  • Spell Bomb IconSpell Bomb
  • Paralyzing Screech IconParalyzing Screech
  • Cyclone of Feathers IconCyclone of Feathers
  • Banish & Spawn Birds — Periodically throughout the fight, Anzu will banish himself, becoming immune to all attacks and spells, and spawn in a large wave of birds.
  • Bird statues — When Anzu is engaged, 3 friendly bird statues will appear that will aid the party if a druid heal-over-time spell is used on them.
    • Hawk Spirit — All players receive 500 less damage from every attack.
    • Eagle Spirit — Deals 300 damage every second to all enemies in the room.
    • Falcon Spirit — Grants 25% movement speed increase, 25% ranged haste and 25% spell casting haste.

Anzu can only be summoned in Heroic difficulty, and only by Druids who have unlocked their Swift Flight Form IconSwift Flight Form. Since Anzu can only be summoned by a Druid, you will always have a Druid present on this fight. They will always be able to use Remove Curse IconRemove Curse to remove the Spell Bomb IconSpell Bomb and put Rejuvenation IconRejuvenations on the Bird Statues to activate their powers.

The main threat of this fight is the constant Paralyzing Screech IconParalyzing Screech that will go off, stunning the entire party. Anzu with also periodically banish himself and summon a large pack of birds. If your Druid is keeping HoTs on the bird statues, it will make dealing with these birds much easier.

Overall, this fight will take some time because of the constant stuns and banish phases. Try not to cast any spells if you have the Spell Bomb IconSpell Bomb debuff as this will quickly burn your Mana. Let the tank grab the birds while Anzu is banished. It is very important that your Druid keeps their heal-over-time spells up on the Bird Statues, as this is a significant boost to survival and damage for the group.

6.2.1.

Loot from Heroic

As this boss is specific to Heroic difficulty only, he only has a Heroic loot table. In additions to the gear below, Anzu drops a Level-70 Rare chest piece that rolls with a random enchantment.

Item Required Level Item Type Slot
Belt of the Raven Lord Icon Belt of the Raven Lord 70 Leather Waist
Boots of Righteous Fortitude Icon Boots of Righteous Fortitude 70 Plate Feet

6.3.

Talon King Ikiss

  • Arcane Bubble IconArcane Bubble
  • Arcane Explosion IconArcane Explosion
  • Arcane Volley IconArcane Volley
  • Polymorph IconPolymorph
  • Slow IconSlow

The main threat of this fight is the Arcane Explosion IconArcane Explosion. Every time Talon King Ikiss loses 25% of his health, he will teleport into the open, shield himself with Arcane Bubble IconArcane Bubble, and start to cast Arcane Explosion. The entire party will need to line-of-sight him around a pillar to avoid taking massive Arcane damage. This is also a threat wipe, so tanks will need to be ready to taunt the boss when the shield breaks, and DPS will need to wait for the tank to build threat again.

The Slow IconSlow and Polymorph IconPolymorph should be dispelled if possible as these can easily cause a death when it is time to line-of-sight the boss. Arcane Volley IconArcane Volley will constantly be blasting the group with moderate Arcane damage, so the healer will need to keep everyone healed up as much as possible.

This fight is very healing-intensive. Players should be looking to use any available healing spells they have to help the healer top the party up, such as Super Healing Potion Icon Super Healing Potion or First Aid. The group should all pick a pillar to stay near and move toward it at the start of the fight so they can easily line-of-sight the boss. Healers should try to kite the boss during his Arcane Bubble IconArcane Bubble as the tank will not be able to taunt during this shield.

7.

Sethekk Halls does not have any large pulls that require AoE. One form of crowd control is strongly advised as there are multiple mobs in this dungeon that are dangerous. A Priest can be very useful here for their Dispel Magic IconDispel Magic, Fear Ward IconFear Ward, and Shackle Undead IconShackle Undead.

A Mage is always strong in any dungeon, especially Heroic difficulty, as Polymorph IconPolymorph is the most reliable CC in the game for PvE. It is recommended to grab either a Mage or Priest for this dungeon to help remove one of the harder mobs from each pull until the end.
