Dire Maul West Dungeon Guide

Last updated on Jul 09, 2024 at 15:59 by Abide 1 comment

Dire Maul is split into three wings, with all of them being recommended for players above Level 55. The West wing is one of the easier wings, assuming you are prepared for the dungeon and have a diverse group setup. Clearing the wing should take around an hour.

The West wing of Dire Maul is known to be haunted, with the spirits of the Highborne who once lived there drifting around the grounds. While they dead may walk the ruins, nature has also risen up, with treants protecting the outer portion of the dungeon, keeping any at bay who may wish to venture deeper, searching for the legendary demon Immol'thar; for thousands of years, he has been imprisoned, his energy being used to feed the immortality of the Shen'dralar and their leader.

Dire Maul West Entrance Location

Dire Maul is located in the centre of Feralas, in between Feathermoon Stronghold and Camp Mojache, the two closest Alliance and Horde camps respectively.

Simply head to the road that runs between the two and, once you reach the centre, head along the northern road.

To access the final section of the West wing of the dungeon, you will first need to have obtained the Crescent Key Icon Crescent Key, which is found in the East wing of the dungeon. Alternatively, you can bring a Rogue to pick the lock.


Dire Maul West Quests

Before setting foot in Dire Maul, we strongly advise you to get all the dungeon quests related to it. To make this process easier, we have written a separate guide.


Layout of Dire Maul West

The most important thing to remember with Dire Maul West and its layout is the pylons that are located around the instance. In total, there are 5 pylons, all of which have to be cleared of the surrounding enemies. If these pylons are not cleared, Immol'thar will not be killable.

There are 3 pylons located in the areas before heading towards Immol'thar, as well as 2 more located directly in his room.

To proceed through the dungeon, you should clear the first area and disable the pylon, before moving on to the side buildings that overlook Tendris Warpwood. Here, you will find the other 2 pylons, as well as 3 of the bosses.

Once these have been cleared, take the tunnel behind where you killed Tendris and you will end up in Immol'thar's room. Disable the 2 pylons and kill him. If you have a Warlock that has the necessary items, you can summon Lord Hel'nurath here.

Head back to where you entered the room and, to the north, there will be another tunnel. Proceed through it to find the final boss, Prince Tortheldrin.


Notable Trash in Dire Maul West

The West wing of Dire Maul features a number of stealthed patrols that can wreak havoc on your group if you do not keep an eye out for them. Pull slowly and ensure that you have cleared a space to fight, rather than simply charging forward.

If you do have CC available, you should use it when possible.

Immol'thar is a Level 61 elite Demon and is the fourth boss of the instance.

This boss can very extremely difficult if you do not have any ranged DPS in your group. Immol'thar will summon Eyes of Immol'thar around the room, which will channel a stacking debuff on a player that increases their casting and attack times, as well as decreasing their movement speed. These need to be killed before the debuff stacks too high.

He will also teleport a random player above the arena and drop them, causing them to take falling damage. You can try to avoid this as a Mage, for example, with Slow Fall Icon Slow Fall or Blink Icon Blink, but you can also just let your healer heal you up.

  • Shadow Bolt Volley Icon Shadow Bolt Volley
  • Shadow Word: Pain Icon Shadow Word: Pain
  • Sleep Icon Sleep
  • Veil of Shadow Icon Veil of Shadow

Lord Hel'nurath is a Level 62 elite Demon that can only be summoned when a Warlock has the J'eevee's Jar Icon J'eevee's Jar, Black Lodestone Icon Black Lodestone, and Xorothian Glyphs Icon Xorothian Glyphs from their epic mount questline. You will summon him in the same spot Immol'thar died.

The boss itself is fairly easy, but before fighting him, your party will have to clear multiple waves of demon trash mobs. These mainly consist of Imps, which are very easy to kill, with a few harder elite mobs included. A Warlock's Banish Icon Banish can be very useful here.

The final item, Xorothian Glyphs Icon Xorothian Glyphs, will summon a horse which, once it reaches 50%, will spawn the boss. The boss is very easy and should just be focused down.


Loot from Hel'nurath

Item Required Level Slot
Diabolic Mantle Icon Diabolic Mantle 57 Shoulders
Dreadguard's Protector Icon Dreadguard's Protector 57 Shield
Fel Hardened Bracers Icon Fel Hardened Bracers 57 Wrists

Prince Tortheldrin

  • Prince Tortheldrin Arcane Blast Icon Arcane Blast
  • Counterspell Icon Counterspell
  • Summon Icon Summon
  • Thrash Icon Thrash
  • Whirlwind Icon Whirlwind

Prince Tortheldrin is a Level 61 elite Humanoid and the final boss of the dungeon.

The only mechanic worth mentioning on this boss is Arcane Blast IconArcane Blast. When this is cast, the DPS should stop attacking until the tank can regain aggro, since it resets all aggro tables when cast.

You can avoid the knockback effect by tanking him against the wall, but this is not necessary, it simply makes it easier to regain aggro.

Item Required Level Slot
Bracers of the Eclipse Icon Bracers of the Eclipse 57 Wrists
Chestplate of Tranquility Icon Chestplate of Tranquility 57 Chest
Distracting Dagger Icon Distracting Dagger 57 Weapon

Mind Carver Icon Mind Carver 57 Weapon
Silvermoon Leggings Icon Silvermoon Leggings 57 Legs
Stoneshatter Icon Stoneshatter 57 Crossbow
Timeworn Mace Icon Timeworn Mace 57 Weapon

For this dungeon, we would always recommend bringing at least 1 Rogue, regardless of the rest of your group setup. They are extremely valuable to have in the group, due to the vast number of enemies they can crowd-control. They can also allow you to enter the final part of the instance without the Crescent Key Icon Crescent Key.

Warlocks are also very useful to have, not only for their abilities, but because they can summon an extra boss after killing Immol'thar, Lord Hel'nurath.

Hunters can be extremely useful when trying to protect your party members, as their Flare Icon Flare can be used to detect patrols.
