Baradin Hold is the main fortress of Tol Barad, located at the island's center. Whoever controls the Hold - by taking and holding the three major fortifications around it - controls Tol Barad.

Dungeon Journal Edit

Following the Second War, the ruined fortress of Baradin Hold on the remote island of Tol Barad was converted into a prison for some of the most dangerous forces on Azeroth. Yet with the devastation wrought by the Cataclysm, the prison's integrity has been compromised. Now as the Horde and Alliance vie for supremacy on the island, the liberation of its forgotten horrors may be at hand.

Instance Edit

Like the Vault of Archavon in Wintergrasp Fortress, there is an instance inside the Hold, accessible to whoever controls it. Boss 15 Argaloth is the right (east) room boss, Boss 15 Occu'thar is the left (west) room boss and Boss 15 Alizabal is the upper (north) room boss.
