Nefarian's sanctum, Blackwing Lair, can be found at the very height of Blackrock Spire. It is there in the dark recesses of the mountain's peak that Nefarian has begun to unfold the final stages of his plan to destroy Ragnaros once and for all and lead his army to undisputed supremacy over all the races of Azeroth. Blackwing Lair is a max-level, 40-player raid dungeon, with many new encounters and tempting rewards awaiting the intrepid adventurer that dares enter its halls. — Patch 1.6
In the dark recesses of the mountain's peak, Nefarian, the eldest son of Deathwing, conducts some of his most awful experimentation, controlling mighty beings like puppets and combining the eggs of different dragonflights with horrific results. Should he prove successful, even darker pursuits rest on the horizon.
And, yet, the Lord of Blackrock is not a mere scientist - he is a great dragon cornered in his lair. Can he truly be defeated by mortal hands?
It's not that we have problems there (not counting the two wipes last thursday, where we had a hunter ninjapull some far off dragonkin by accident, then respawn as we tried to run through the already cleared room...), but it's just so tedious! We have quite a few AoE people in our usual raid setup (healing is typically three priests and 2 druids + 8 or so shammies, a combo we killed the Broodlord with:)), so taking care of the whelps is no problem. We have disciplined members, so the moving along is no problem. Tanks know which mob to pick up when, so it all goes more or less smoothly along.
I hate that place! The silly traps push my fps under 3.0, which is usually bad for a tank. The constant noise is starting to freak me out after 2 minutes. I feel stressed even though I have hardly anything to do. I want to "have a talk" with the designer who thought about this little bump on the road to Nefarian. Just gimme five minutes!
We do not have the Broodlord on farm yet. We walk in, start clearing the whelps, Orcs and Dragonkin, and as soon as we start moving, dread grips a hold of us. OMG, we might have to do this again! Oh noes!
Why isn't there a big switch you can throw once you are at the Broodlord that disables respawns and the traps? Does Blizzard take joy from our misery? I know it not, but, for those who haven#t figured it out yet: I hate The Suppression Room with a vengeance. — Player Tarabulus, 2006
A gathering of the exotic from around the world and beyond, Silas Darkmoon has brought together the Darkmoon Faire as a celebration of the wondrous and mysterious found in Azeroth. While the Faire spends most of their time in parts unknown, they do stop from time to time in Mulgore and Elwynn forest. When the faire is on its way barkers will stop by Ogrimmar and Ironforge to announce its arrival.
