Millennia ago, Neltharion carved deep places in the earth where he conducted world altering experiments. After his death, these sites were lost to time, until now. Forces seeking to claim the Earth-Warder's legacy raid his dominion in search for powerful artifacts. Now the champions of Azeroth must venture into darkness and ensure the crucible's dangerous power doesn't fall into the wrong hands.



Before Deathwing, there were many attempts to infuse a subject with Shadowflame. The only one that survived was Kazzara. Driven mad by the excruciating pain inflicted by her elementium plates, she now serves as the ferocious guardian of the Shadowed Crucible.


The creation of Shadowflame destroyed countless elementals. Now only the strongest remain, Krozgoth and Moltannia. One of shadow, the other fire, these powerful elementals combine their powers to create a force of ultimate destruction.

Experimentation of Dracthyr

On the road to develop dracthyr there were many failures. Some of these early versions were too volatile to destroy, and instead kept dormant to protect the world from their brutality. Now they awaken to test their prowess against the champions of Azeroth.

Zaqali Invasion

Warlord Kagni leads the Zaqali warband against the crucible. Brutal and Ruthless, Kagni is willing to employ any tactic in order to win.


Rashok, once a great leader of the Zaqali, was imprisoned within these halls for millennia. His molten blood constantly siphoned to power the crucible, the elder was kept on the brink of death driving him mad. Due to the recent chaos, Rashok has broken his restraints and seeks revenge on any that cross his path.


Zskarn walked these halls when they were first formed and bore witness to Neltharion's many profound experiments. Now that the crucible stirs with power once more, Zskarn will stop at nothing to claim the crucible and continue his master's legacy.


Its eyes never close. Its will never breaks. Magmorax, the beast of legend, guards the passage into the deepest chambers of the Shadowed Crucible.

Echo of Neltharion

Before the name Deathwing was whispered in terror, Neltharion was known as the Earth-Warder. During this time, the Aspect of Earth used his power to construct a massive hall deep beneath the surface where he accumulated secret knowledge. A visage of the black dragon still resides within the crucible, waiting for an opportunity to continue the work started so long ago... at any cost.

Scalecommander Sarkareth

Formerly one of the five Scalecommanders of the dracthyr, Sarkareth broke away to rebel against the dragonflights. Now leader of the Sundered Flame, Sarkareth leads an army into Neltharion's Shadowed Crucible to claim the power within and use it to overthrow the aspects.
