Sunwell Plateau Attunement
There is no attunement required to enter the Sunwell Plateau raid, but only characters at Level 70 are able to enter the instance.
Sunwell Plateau Entrance Location
Sunwell Plateau is located to the south west of Sun's Reach where players will be teleported when entering the Isle of Quel'Danas. You can follow the path going southwest and the raid instance portal will be quite hard to miss.
Bosses in Sunwell Plateau
There are six bosses in Sunwell Plateau, all of which must be killed in a linear order to progress deeper into the instance. Check out the links below for our in-depth guides for each specific boss.
Sunwell Plateau offers many unique challenges that you must be prepared to face, specifically the usage of a Warlock tank on the Eredar Twins encounter is almost required and should be something that you consider when forming your raid comp before heading inside. Brutallus also has one of the most intense healing requirements of any boss to date and bringing an extra healer or two is strongly encouraged for your first couple kills of this encounter; many guilds will likely use 7-8 healers for their early kills of Brutallus.
