The Black Anvil in Blackrock Depths

The Black Anvil in World of Warcraft: The Comic

The Black Anvil is a large black anvil in the center of Shadowforge City in Blackrock Depths. Guarded by Lord Incendius, this anvil is required to craft all Dark Iron items created by Blacksmithing Blacksmithing.

The following items may only be crafted at the Black Anvil:

It is possible to craft several of these items without defeating Lord Incendius. It takes him several seconds to circle the anvil. If timed correctly, you should be able to finish crafting an item before dying.


  • A player who has Direbrew's Remote from the Brewfest seasonal event can quickly access the Black Anvil without having to go through the rest of the instance. The remote takes the player to the Grim Guzzler, and once the back door is opened (doable several ways), the player can turn to the right after going through the door and drop down onto the bridge where the anvil is located.
  • Take the Mole Machine found just inside the entrance to "just past the grim guzzler" and from there, just jump down to the anvil.
