Cataclysm Dungeon Locations

Right, so in Cata you will have to discover your dungeon before you can queue up for it. I believe this is a good thing, I do hope they make it account bound because I really don't feel like rediscovering them on every character.

I also hope that my character remembers where the old dungeons are, and that they will make sure that I can queue up for those too, since that is currently not possible.

Buuuut, to discover the dungeon entrance, you do need to know where they are...below the cut is a nice overview.
If you click on the images a larger version of the picture will appear. I have tried to take screenshots that show accurately where you need to be. 

You may notice that in a lot of the screenshots I have not discovered the entire map yet. While I was doing this I was discovering the instances myself so I could actually queue up for them through the random dungeon finder. 

Also, I'll only be going over the new dungeons. I would hope that you know where to find Deadmines and Shadowfang Keep. And if you don't, you shouldn't be trying them on heroic.

Blackrock Caverns (Level 80-81)
This instance is entered through the Blackrock Mountain. You can get there from Searing Gorge or from Burning Steppes. Several instances live in this mountain. To get to Blackrock Caverns you run around the circle until you find the broken gate. When you run into this hallway you will see some crates scattered around, you go to the right here, and the instance portal is right in front of you.


Throne of the Tides (Level 80-81)
Throne of the Tides is the one of two dungeons in the Abyssal Maw complex located in Vashj'ir. This dungeon has a pretty creative entrance. You get yourself to the Abyssal Breach and then get sucked down. Where you get dropped in a pool in front of the entrance.



The Stonecore (Level 81-85)
This instance is located in Deepholm. To get to Deepholm you take the quest to go through the Maelstrom. This quest is found in Stormwind. After you've entered Deepholm the dungeon entrance can be found on the west side of the temple, about 2/3 of the way up.


The Vortex Pinnacle (Level 81-85)
One of the Skywall instances in Uldum, and the entrance can be found on one of the floating spires. 


Grim Batol (Level 84-85)
Grim Batol is located in the west part of the Twilight Highlands.



Lost City of the Tol'vir (Level 84-85)
The entrance to this dungeon can be found in the south of the zone Uldum.


Halls of Origination (Level 85)
The other dungeon located in Uldum are the Halls of Origination (HoO). This dungeon can be found slightly west of The Lost City of Tol'vir.

  31. how do you get to twilight highlands?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Twilight Highlands is east from Wetlands. So travel to Wetlands and fly east.

    If you're a lvl 84/85 and you haven't done the quests you can also follow the heroes call board quests. They will bring you there eventually as well.

  33. for horde it's easier to get to blackrock caverns from mount hyjal. There is a quest there that will let you take a machine to the cavern

  34. This breadcrumb quest is also available to alliance, but wasn't there yet in beta when the original of this guide was written ;)

    This quest is, of course, only available once.
