The Aberrus raid guide: What to know
The Aberrus, The Shadowed Crucible raid is found deep in Zaralek Caverns and holds the dark secrets of the Black Dragonflight's daddy Neltharion. Multiple groups race towards Aberrus to find and control its secrets, including a contingent of rogue Dracthyr called the Sundered Flame, looking to reclaim its legacy.
The raid's details include:
- Raid bosses: 9
- Difficulties: Raid Finder, Normal, Heroic, Mythic
- Level: 70
- Raid Finder Minimum Item Level: 390
Millennia ago, Neltharion established Aberrus, a secret laboratory where he conducted world-altering experiments. Recently rediscovered, Aberrus is now under attack from all sides as forces seeking to claim the Earth-Warder’s legacy search for any power that remains. The champions of Azeroth must venture into the shadows and ensure Neltharion’s dark power doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.
