Wrath of the Lich King Classic Dungeon Guides

Last updated on Sep 10, 2022 at 14:58 by Abide 1 comment

Dungeons are instanced zones that allow groups of players to battle stronger elite mobs and bosses to earn better rewards. They are normally created as the "end location" of a zone, featuring a number of quests that act as the finale to the story of the zone.

Dungeons in Wrath of the Lich King

Below is a complete list of all available dungeons in Wrath of the Lich King, alongside their recommended level ranges and a guide on everything you need to know about that dungeon. The recommended level ranges of the dungeons is for Normal difficulty as Heroic difficulty requires Level 80 to complete.

1.1.

Upcoming Dungeons

In addition to the twelve dungeons available in Phase 1 of Wrath of the Lich King Classic, there are an additional four max-level instances that will be released over the course of the expansion's phases. Although they cannot be accessed at this time, we have still prepared guides that you can consult when the moment arrives.

Forming a Dungeon Party in Wrath of the Lich King

In order to complete a dungeon, you will need to put together a group of players that can each fulfill a certain role within the dungeon.

2.1.

Tanks

The first role is the tank; tanks essentially guide the group through the dungeon, deciding which mobs to pull and when. They will take the damage for the party by generating additional threat, which ensures enemies will attack them rather than the rest of your party.

The following specializations and classes can be played as a tank:

2.2.

Healers

Healers are there to do as their name suggests: heal the party. They use their healing and shielding spells to ensure that your tank stays alive, as well as any DPS that take damage.

The following specializations and classes can be played as a healer:

2.3.

DPS

DPS, or damage dealers, are there to ensure that enemies are killed quickly and efficiently. They also often have crowd-control abilities available, which can be used to take an enemy out of the fight for a long period of time.

The following specializations and classes can be played as a DPS:

3.

Party Sizes in Wrath of the Lich King

In WotLK, dungeons are done as a party, which has a maximum size of 5 players. It is highly recommended to always try to have the full 5 players for any dungeon since the content may not be possible without a full group.

4.

Leveling in Dungeons in Wrath of the Lich King

Leveling in dungeons can be extremely efficient, especially early on when the zones are packed with players during the initial launch. This is doubly true if you can get a group of players who are geared in end-game level 70 raid gear.

These involve taking a certain group setup that is extremely efficient at killing mobs and essentially just grinding dungeons repeatedly. While this can be quite dull, due to the length of time you will spend in the same zone, it can be one of the best ways to level.
