Blackfathom Deeps

Level:
LFD Level: 20 – 30
Minimum Level: 15

Notes:
To complete Looking for Dungeon (LFD) you need to ‘Defeat Aku’mai the Devourer’.
A lot of players get lost in this dungeon, try to stick together and check map regularly.
Careful of being feared by the Void Walker Minions ‘Glimpse of the Void’. When a Voidwalker Minion dies you get pulled towards the blue lightning cloud, run away.
The underwater boss Guardian of the Deep can be reached faster by swimming to a pile of ‘Guardian Eggs’. Click one and you will gain ‘Aspect of the Guardian’ increasing swim speed by 75%.
After killing Twilight Lord Bathiel to open the door for the final boss click on the ‘Fire of Aku’mai’.

Click for Dungeon Entrance:

You can find the Blackfathom Deeps dungeon within Ashenvale, Kalimdor.
The coordinates are (13.8,15.1)

Head towards Blackfathom Deeps located on the top left of Ashenvale and enter inside a small ruin.

Follow the mini map round and keep to the right, all ways are a dead end so you shouldn’t get lost. At the end of the
cave take the left turning and you should see the portal entrance.

Fun Facts

Fun stuff you can find while exploring the Dungeons.

Pahboo-Ra

This little turtle is the son of first boss Ghamoo-Ra.

Pahboo-Ra-Model

Ghamoo-Ra had a model change in patch 6.0.1 in WoD.  Pahboo-Ra is the same old model as the original Ghamoo-Ra before the dungeon had a remake.

Hidden Cave

If you swim around in The Pool of Ask’ar far at the far left you can find a hidden cave.

Hidden-Cave-The-Pool-of-Ask'ar

From the looks of it someone has been using it to hideout for awhile.

Save Him!

When you approach the second boss Domina a Frightened Prisoner is being sacrificed.

Frightened-Prisoner wow

You can save him or let him die, if you want to save him then you need to kill the two Twilight Tormentors holding him before it’s too late.

If you let him die though Domina will receive the buff Aku’mai’s Boon which increases her shadow damage delt by 15%.
