Maraudon Guide




Maraudon is a level 46 to 50 instance located in Desolace. You may obtain around 5-6 quests for it, and if tackled on seriously, will take about 6-7 hours to complete from start to finish. It was Blizzard's first content-added instance, and it sports 2 wings as well as a quest item to let you teleport around to the final part of it!

Levels Recommended



Southwest Desolace


Once you enter the gates, go through the tunnels and find the centaur called "The Nameless Prophet". Once you kill him, he'll let you loot his Amulet of Spirits, a quest item.

Once you arrive at the first fork in the road, you'll see purple, orange and an arch with 2 centaur statues. Go to the statue area and use the amulet of spirits on the Spirit of Kolk - this will make him agressive toward you, killing him will net you the Gem of the First Kahn.

Now, head back and take the Orange crystal path, and take the quest "Legends of Maraudon" so you can obtain the scepter eventually! Heading down this path, turn left and use your amulet of spirits on the third Kahn, and kill him to loot his Gem.

Go back and now going to the east, you should see a tunnel, this will lead you into the first instance portal.

Orange Instance

As you make your way through, be careful of Creeping Sludges - if you melee them you will be getting damaged a lot by their AOE poison! use ranged attackers or kite them and kill them quickly in order to get them out of the way. Don't let them bunch up or get in the middle of your group.


Tank charges in and everyone attacks. Every 10 seconds he will split into 8 Noxxion spawns, which you must kill. If you have a mage or a warlock, have them AOE, otherwise, take care of them as quickly as possible. Once the last spawn dies, Noxxion reappears, so just keep on fighting him until he's dead.


Razorlash is an optional boss for this wing; you may find him at the end of the tunnels past Noxxion. There's really no strategy to him other than tank and spank him, and he will mostly drop Nature Resist loot, if you need any.

Violet Instance

Backtrack out of the instance and take the other fork in the road, to the violet tunnel. Go right on the next fork and you will see the instance zone-in. If you want to get another gem of Kahn, go to the opposite side of the instance portal, walking past a bridge and going left, you will find a small shrine, and the second Kahn. Killing him will net you your Gem for the quest.
