The Blackrock Depths are the deepest parts of Blackrock Mountain, ruled by the Dark Iron dwarves led by Emperor Dagran Thaurissan. Several minions of the Firelord Ragnaros also call their home in these lava-lined depths. The player cap was 10 before patch 1.10, when it was adjusted down to 5. Blackrock Depths is currently the largest 5 man instance in the game. The average time to complete the instance is 4-6 hours.

History

From World Dungeons on the old WoW site:

Once the capital city of the Dark Iron dwarves, this volcanic labyrinth now serves as the seat of power for Ragnaros the Firelord. Ragnaros has uncovered the secret to creating life from stone and plans to build an army of unstoppable golems to aid him in conquering the whole of Blackrock Mountain. Obsessed with defeating Nefarian and his draconic minions, Ragnaros will go to any extreme to achieve final victory.

Also known as the Blackrock Deeps[1] (LoC 42)

Quests

Dungeon Denizens

Minor NPCs

The depths are inhabited by Dark Iron Dwarves, their demonic bloodhound pets, their golem protectors, and their fire elemental allies. There is also a presence of Twilight's Hammer ambassadors inside the city and the detention block area.

The dwarves in the Depths consist primarily of warrior- and priest-types. Outside the Shadowforge City, the dwarves are all elite. Inside the city, one can find groups of one or two elite dwarves or Twilight cultists surrounded by a cadre of non-elite citizens. Some other humanoid races appear in the city, and in the Ring of Law.

The demonic bloodhounds in the Depths are renown for their ability to sniff out stealthed rogues and druids. They will sometimes be grouped into their own pack, and sometimes included into a group with humanoid allies. All of the dogs are non-elite, but their damage capability in large numbers is not to be underestimated.

The golems and fire elementals in the Depths generally fit the stereotypes of their races. The golems are strong and well armored melee attackers, though some exceptional specimens have the ability to release area-of-effect fire spells. The fire elementals cause large amounts of fire damage with melee attacks and ranged fire spells.

Other Details

Dark Iron

Blackrock Depths is one of the two places where Dark Iron ore can be mined reliably, with the other location being Molten Core. Since patch 1.7 dark iron ore nodes have begun to appear rarely in the Burning Steppes and the Searing Gorge. It is also the location of the Black Forge and the Black Anvil. The Black Forge is the only place where dark iron ore can be smelted into bars. The Black Anvil is required for most crafting recipes that require dark iron bars. As such, a run in BRD is essential to almost any blacksmithing or engineering work which uses that rare metal.

Also see: Dark Iron stealth guide.

Blacksmithing

Scattered around Blackrock Depths are Blacksmithing Plans which appear as scrolls that can be clicked on with a gear icon. Only a high level Blacksmith should click on these plans, if anyone without high level blacksmithing attempts to use them the plans will be destroyed. Opening the scroll will give you one of the following BoP plans:

As mentioned, anyone can click on the Blacksmithing Plans but without the proper skill you will destroy the plans. Also, the plans within are BoP so you may want to roll before using them if you have multiple smiths.

Places to find different plans:

  • Beside Golem Lord Argelmach in a room inside the manufactory.
  • In the manufactory on a bench on the right.
  • In the room before the 7 ghosts, beside the stairs.
  • Near General Angerforge on a shelf.

Engineering

Several engineering schematics are available only in the Depths.
