Upper Blackrock Spire was originally the 15-man part of Blackrock Spire; in Patch 1.10.0 it was converted into a 10-main RAID; in Patch 4.0.3a it was converted into a 5-man dungeon.

In Warlords of Draenor

World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor This section concerns content exclusive to Warlords of Draenor.

For a limited time, during patch 6.0.2 (the pre-Warlords of Draenor release event), a special level 90 version of the instance was open to players, featuring new bosses tied to the Warlords of Draenor expansion. These bosses included: Orebender Gor'ashan, Kyrak, and Commander Tharbek.

The Blizzard announcement for this event read:

"An advance party of Iron Horde forces has barged right out of the Blasted Lands and pushed all the way to Blackrock Mountain, where they found refuge and supplies in Upper Blackrock Spire. There can be only one response: the Alliance and the Horde of Azeroth must face this iron incursion head on."

This instance was updated, with a Heroic mode (level 100) version for the World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor Warlords of Draenor expansion. In addition to the three bosses mentioned above, this permanent version contains two additional bosses: Ragewing the Untamed and Warlord Zaela.


See Blackrock Spire.


Before the release of the Patch 3.0.8 expansion, the raid required completion of the quest N [57] Seal of Ascension, to acquire the Seal of Ascension. However, this is no longer needed, as the door that leads to Upper Blackrock Spire is now permanently open.

To enter the Upper Spire, use the same entrance as the Lower Spire and follow the left wall as you enter. You will ascend a small flight of stairs and into a hall with smaller side chambers. Each chamber is filled with mobs and a small glowing rune. Defeating the mobs in a chamber will deactivate a rune and once each has faded, a double door at the back of the hall will open.
