Blackwing Descent

Blackwing Descent

Blackwing Descent sits on a balcony, carved into the eastern side of Blackrock Mountain. It is among the highest locations in Azeroth and a flying mount is required to reach it.

The only fight that has any real difficulty is the final fight against Nefarian. That fight is significantly harder than the rest of the raid combined. Without a reliable source of healing it is very likely you will get overrun by adds. Because of this I would recommend only trying the fight once or twice at the most.

I would recommend this raid be among the first you consider. You should end up with around 1,300g even if you are not able to defeat Nefarion.

Finding the Entrance
