General Information

Razorfen Downs is the higher level counterpart dungeon to Razorfen Kraul and is also located in the Barrens. The recommended group level for this dungeon is 36 to 40. It will take approximately an hour to clear.

While the Kraul is a stronghold for the Quilboar, Razorfen Downs is their resting place. It serves as an ancient burial ground for their race, but it has since been taken over by agents of the Scourge, who have begun to reanimate their dead.

1. Entrance Location

Razorfen Downs is located at the southern most tip of the Barrens, just northeast of the Great Lift that leads to the Thousand Needles.

If you are an Alliance player, it can be tough to get to this dungeon and you will likely have to move through Horde territory. It is advisable to group up before making your way through Dustwallow Marsh from Theramore and into the Barrens. Once there, try to stay off the main path south as you are less likely to encounter Horde players.

2. Recommended Classes for Razorfen Downs

This dungeon features a large number of trash mobs that put diseases on your party. It is a good idea to bring a Paladin, Priest, or Shaman, as they can all cure them.

Priests are especially useful due to their Shackle Undead Icon Shackle Undead ability, as there are a huge number of undead enemies here.

3. Layout of Razorfen Downs

The dungeon itself is fairly linear, with a clear path laid out already by the natural progression of the instance. The only time that this progression is broken is when players attempt the Extinguishing the Idol escort quest. This will take you back to the first boss, but you should be able to easily find your way back.
