Warlords of Draenor’s Blackrock Foundry Raid Release Date Set

Rukhmar - Blackrock Foundry Boss

The vast majority of us are still carefully exploring every nook and cranny of the new areas added to Warlords of Draenor, and we’ll be doing do that for a few months yet as we aim to get our money’s worth out of the expansion.

Hardcore players however, are starting to get restless, and are already looking for new areas to earn wow gold, new monsters to slay, new challenges to meet. That’s where Blizzard excels. Many MMO developers are simply incapable of creating content fast enough to keep power levellers and min-maxers happy, but Blizzard’s maintains a steady stream of quality patches, updates and content.  Case in point? Blackrock Foundry.


Blackrock Foundry Warlords of Draenor

Blackrock Foundry is an all-new raid instance for Warlords of Draenor, and Blizzard have set a release date of February 3rd. The area is the ancestral home of the legendary Blackrock Orcs, and is famed for the “impossibly hard ore” mined within.

Blackrock Foundry comes with a total of 10 new encounters, and sub-zones such as Burning Font, The Great Anvil, The Blackrock Forge, Dead Grotto, The Blast Furnace, Gruul’s Lair, Iron Assembly and lots more. It promises to be a tough, rewarding map with lots of content and great bosses. You’ll need a good group and lots of cheap wow gold to ensure victory!


Blackrock Foundry Map

Blackrock Foundry gear starts at tier 17. You’ll need a min item level of 635 to get into Blackrock via Raid Finder, but rewards thankfully range from item level 650 all the way up to 695. It also features a glut of new bosses, among them:

Gruul – Once called the Dragonkiller, now reduced to slavery, he’s had his left hand replaced with a hook, allowing to more easily carry pallets of fuel for the furnace… and no doubt inflict grave bodily harm upon his enemies.

Oregorger – A horribly mutated goren who lives to devour rock, and those lost souls who foolishly wander into his domain.

Hans’gar and Franzok – Keeping with the wow tradition of evil twins/brothers, these banished brothers, shamed when they refused to kill each other, now call the savage Black Forge their home.

Kromog – A massive, ancient magnaron who assists the miners of the Black Forge, but will crush all others who enter.

Many more evil bosses await, including the tyrant, Blackhand, the brilliant Iron Maidens, the grisly Beastlord Darmac, fearsome raid boss,  Rukhamar and many more.  As always, EpicToon.com offers cheap wow gold to players who are looking to gain an extra edge in the fight against darkness.
