Azjol-Nerub Instance Guide


           Azjol-Nerub is one of two instances that is located in The Pit of Narjun in Dragonblight, just west of Agmar's Hammer and Star's Rest. The sister instance of Azjol-Nerub is Ahn'kahet: Old Kingdom which is located practically right next door in The Pit of Narjun. Azjol-Nerub is well known for being the shortest instance in Wrath of the Lich King. This instance is three bosses long and each of them have maybe one or two pulls of trash before them. The only stopping and waiting you have to do is before the second boss as you wait for her to web the add's doors.

Azjol-Nerub is well known for having one of the most difficult achievements for a 5man to get, Watch Him Die.
