Dire Maul Quests Guide

Last updated on Apr 10, 2024 at 01:28 by Abide 3 comments

This guide lists all the quests you can do in the Dire Maul dungeon: Alliance quests, Horde quests, class quests, profession quests, quests you need to get before entering the dungeons, and quests you get inside the dungeons. The idea is to help you do all the quests in as few runs of the dungeon as possible.

For more information about the dungeon, please refer to our detailed Dire Maul hub, which contains guides for each wing.

Dire Maul has a huge number of quests that are spread throughout the 3 wings of the dungeon, with many being available to both factions. There are also a number of dungeon-specific quests, which include the Arcanum Enchant quests, which award items such as Arcanum of Focus Icon Arcanum of Focus, and the class book quests, which award class-specific versions of a trinket.

Below, you will find a list of the basic quests that can be completed in the wings of Dire Maul, as well as their level requirement and faction specification.

To complete all of the quests in this dungeon, Alliance and Horde players will both need to be at least Level 56, or Level 60 if they are completing a class quest.


Quel'Serrar Questline

The Quel'Serrar questline is available with the release of Dire Maul and, while it mainly takes place in Onyxia's Lair, players will have to venture into Dire Maul to obtain the sword.


Dire Maul North Wing Quests

There are 3 quests for players to complete in the North Wing, all of which are available to both Alliance and Horde players. All of them are started inside the dungeon.


Neutral Quests in the West Wing


Dire Maul East Wing Quests

There are a total of 4 quests for players in the East Wing, with 1 Mage-only quest.


Neutral Quests in the East Wing

There are 2 neutral quests in the East wing, which are as follows. They are both started outside the instance.


Pusillin and the Elder Azj'Tordin

Pusillin will run away from you until you eventually follow him deeper into the instance. You will need to kill him, as well as the smaller imps that he summons. Be very careful if you are doing this quest as an AoE-heavy class, as you will likely pull aggro on the smaller imps.


Shards of the Felvine

This quest requires players to have already completed A Reliquary of Purity, which starts with Rabine Saturna in Moonglade. The dungeon quest is given by the same quest giver.


Class Quests in the East Wing

There is only 1 class quest in the East Wing, Arcane Refreshment for Mages. This quest will allow them to learn their top rank of Conjure Water.

Lorekeeper Lydros gives Mages this quest and can be found in the Library of the instance. You will need to kill Hydrospawn, a boss in the East Wing, and loot the Hydrospawn Essence Icon Hydrospawn Essence.


Dire Maul West Wing Quests

There are 2 neutral quests in the West wing, as well as 2 class quests, 1 for Warlocks and 1 for Paladins.


Neutral Quests in the West Wing


Class Quests in the West Wing

Both of the class quests in this wing are from the epic mount questlines for Warlock and Paladin.



Dreadsteed of Xoroth is the Warlock quest in the West wing, which requires you to summon a Xorothian Dreadsteed and control it.

Mor'zul Bloodbringer will start this quest for players in the Burning Steppes, as long as they have the completed the rest of the chain up until this point. To start the epic mount questline, you will need to reach Level 60, and pick up the quest Mor'zul Bloodbringer from your Demon Trainer.

To summon a Xorothian Dreadsteed for this part of the questline, you will need to buy J'eevee's Jar Icon J'eevee's Jar, Xorothian Glyphs Icon Xorothian Glyphs, and Black Lodestone Icon Black Lodestone from Gorzeeki Wildeyes for a total of 250 gold. These 3 items will be used to summon the dreadsteed.

Find a party and head to Dire Maul West, assuming you have the key already or a Rogue in the group, and clear the dungeon until after Immol'thar is dead. Your Warlock will then need to use these 3 items in the ring where Immol'thar died to start the summoning ritual.

When the ritual starts, J'eevee will place 3 items on the ground: a bell, a wheel, and a candle. These items will help to protect your party while you fight the waves of demons, but they will need to be restored every time they are destroyed with the Black Lodestone Icon Black Lodestone. This will cost Soul Shards, so make sure you have plenty in your bags.

Once the waves of demons stop, Xorothian Dreadsteed will join the fight. You will need to get it down to 50%, which will cause Lord Hel'nurath to spawn. Kill him before finishing off the dreadsteed to complete the quest and turn it in to the Dreadsteed Spirit.



Ancient Equine Spirit is part of the epic mount quest for Paladins, and requires you to get the barding blessed in the West Wing.

You will need to get the Manna-Enriched Horse Feed Icon Manna-Enriched Horse Feed from Merideth Carlson and take it to the West wing, along with Arcanite Barding Icon Arcanite Barding. After killing Tendris Warpwood, this will free the Ancient Equine Spirit. Give it the horse feed to soothe the spirit, then ask for its blessing.


Arcanum Enchant Quests

There are 3 Arcanum Enchant quests, all of which require you to bring materials to Lorekeeper Lydros in exchange for enchant items. You cannot complete any of these enchant quests if you have not already completed Elven Legends/Elven Legends, which you can pick up inside the instance. You will need to interact with a pile of bones in the library and then return the quest to your faction's hub in Feralas.

Once this is done, you can hand in the enchant quests to Lydros in the library. The required materials and their rewards are as follows.


Class Book Quests

The class book quests are all started inside the instance by interacting with A Dusty Tome or by looting one of the books as a drop from any boss in the instance.

Obtaining these books is essentially just luck and there is no guarantee that you will find it quickly. Simply farm the instance and, when you see a tome, interact with it.

If you do not want to wait, you can also buy the book on the Auction House, but prices may vary depending on the server.

The quests each reward a variant of the same trinket. You can find the list of trinkets below.
