The questchain starts at Anchorite Ceyla for the Aldor, at Altar of Sha'tar, and at Arcanist Thelis for Scryers, at the Sanctum of the Stars.
for Scryers. Just follow the chain: the comments will guide you to the follow ups until you have to go to A'dal for your final reward... or so you think.
I believe, yes, believe, for I am no member of any guild that is farther in any raid instance than Gruul, you will have to venture into Serpentshrine cavern to find a Seer called Olum, who will direct back you to Akama. You can only speak to him if you wear the provided Ashtongue Cowl. Akama will then order you to retrieve the Time-Phased Phylactery from Rage Winterchill, a boss in CoT - Hyjal Summit. Then you will have to go to A'dal, who in turn will send you to Xi'ri, who will create a distraction for Akama so that he and Maiev can venture into the Black Temple.... with you as an escort (as if they need it...).
From now on, only Nihilum, Forte and Curse will have a chance of completing this chain *winks* You need to kill the Shade of Akama, the part of Akama that binds him to Illidan. And finally, slay Illidan.
Congratulations! You are officially done with the game until next patch, and can spend some time in real life now.
Now again, notice that I'm not sure this is the actual chain exactly correctly *winks*.
I didnt even know that players got into Hyjal summit when i heard about this a while back, so i tihnk that nihilum must be some of the most dedicated/organized players on wow to actually to actually complete the attunement for it so quickly, GZ to Kungen, guild leader of nihilum
Does anybody think that when Wotlk comes out you will av to kill illidan as part of the attunement quest for Icecrown citadel to face Arthas?
It really won't be a "lore disaster". I mean, when/if they make Warcraft 4, they'll probably just sidestep WoW completely.
Hell, Illidan may have actually died to Arthas on Icecrown in WC3, just arriving in WoW because Blizzard thought he'd make a good boss.
Unless someone can point it out to me where Blizzard said that WoW would have an effect on future lore, I'm pretty sure anything in WoW is non-canon.
arthas is ~as powerful as illidan, illidan is not as powerful as 25 level 70's though (because we kill him), which means the lich king, while leaps and bounds more powerful than 25 level 70's, may not be so for 25 level 80's.
Meet your Makers, formerly Curse (Veknilash-EU), had an overall video to BT released on 2007-08-29.
It includes all 9 Encounters and 5 different Points of View.
This may be the hardest instance in the game but it's still my favorite instance in all the game ,it would have made a great neutral capital
Neat little easter egg, you can see the planet azeroth is on from this instance.
Attunement lifted in patch 2.4.
"Players will no longer require an attunement quest to enter the Black Temple.
Players who have completed the attunement quests for Black Temple and Hyjal will be granted the title of “Hand of A’dal”.
While I recomend 25 full tier 6 people all that is really needed is a verry well Tiered Prot warrior a nd a few well geared healers the dps while they should have good armor does not have to have the best of the best and could only have armor from heroic instances done previously. My raid downed illidan while I was still using a green off hand dagger. Although I was happy when I got the main hand blade of azzeroth. It will take a bit longer but iff you have good tanks and heals it should not be to hard.
Anyone know an approximate amount of rep you get for a full clear?
I'm just curious, about how long does it take to do this instance from start to finish
what would be req stats for dps to go?
what stats must a rogue have to go and finish black temple with a raid?i mean how much hp ,crit chance,atack power etc etc.
pls answer me.and give me + rating
Attunement is no longer required (2.4.0+), if you don't have gear from BT, and/or other pre-2.4.0 lvl70 instances you will have much harder time taking on MT and SP.
is there a wait time to do this instance after you already did it, and also what kind of gear do you need for it?
Rather strange how the Black Temple (formerly known as the Black Citadel whilst under control of Magtheridon) was in Hellfire Peninsula and was moved for unknown reasons to Shadowmoon Valley.
Black Citadel & Temple
After the attunment you get a neck that lets you enter. When you kill illidan you'll get a new neck that teleports you to BT!
Lol...i looove BT but the problem is...I play on fun server..and every time i want to go in BT horde kills me..All right. :) On original its easyer to get into it...lol I love illidan very much, and i think hes great..but can he explain me why does he listen a Kel'Thas wtf? :))))))))) lol...I dont know...I dont like ninjas very much...And Master looters too...I was in raid 1time when in the end of BT, wher we had illidan with 1%..leader turns on Master Loot...And he took all illidans items...I cant belive thwt we were soooooo stupid and that we belived him....lol...Oh i forgot to tell u..Im nina from serbia..Im a girl... KIss for everyone hwo read my looong looong comment lol :))) Love xxx Nina
If you don't know every tactics for every boss you "wipe"
How do you go through the pipe to supremus. I am stealthing through with my rogue and theres alot of poles in my way.
Didnt Arthas kill Illidan in WC3? I mean he gutted him -.- Its cool he's alive but can someone answer me?
What is the status of BT now with the WOTLK? Has blizzard retuned it, or have they made it a 10man raid? Just curious, thinking of sending in a group of 10 80s in the near future.

The following was originally posted by the player Gragnarth on the US WoW Raid & Dungeons Forum and is preserved here for lols.
< Simple Math >
PART 2: BLACK TEMPLE (THE EXCITING AND DYNAMIC FIRST HALF)
Black temple is the home of Illidan, he is in a guild called <The Betrayer>, You cannot enter in the front gate, because its locked, so instead you must enter through the sewer, which is gross. While waiting for your raid to form, you can play the exciting game of repeadlley aggroing doomwalker on a flying mount, causing him to yell at the entire zone. The lvl 68's nearby will either threaten to repeort for for spamming in general chat or send you wispers asking to join your doomwalker raid, both should provide suitable entertainment while you wait for people to hearth and come back because they fergot their SR neck. okay Now that everyone is here prepare for the first Boss:
The Trash pack In Najentus' Room(you know the one):
Although not technically a "boss" by conventional gaming standards, this pull is far harder then the three lootbags that follow it, requiring raid coordination, strong healing, and actual Skill from the Tanks, needless to say it is exciting and dynamic. Possibly collect your epics or lvl 67 greens of spirit, and prepare to face:
High Warlord Najentus:
This guy was a high warlord Pre BC, that means he smells incredibly bad from grinding BG's 19 hours a day, as a result he now lives in the sewer. He also has a seashell for an arm. I think You can Draw your own conclusions. Whats most exciting and dynamic about this encounter is listening to it on vent when you arent in the raid, in no time "THROWIT-THROWIT-THROWIT-THROWIT-THROWIT-THROWIT-THROWIT-THROWIT" will be a word in your vocabulary, look foward to that. Collect your purps and head over to:
One of the truths that trancend WOW raiding across many dungeons of all types and sizes is: Dont Stand in the Fire. With this encounter, blizzard has introduced a new twist to the classic fire, with an alluring Blue tint thats sure to entrance even your most hardened veteran raider. I Also read this fight has phases. Resist the beautyful glow for about 6 minutes, collect your loot and make your way over to the next jok...err boss:
Shade Of Akama:
If you diddnt know, I play a fury warrior, and as a result i have no clue what the strategy for this boss is. As far as im concerned its hit the small guys until they go away then hit the big guy, This seems to work well for me. If you dont play a melee DPS class you might have to try here, but I doubt it. Collect your epics and get ready for:
The key to this fight is prayer. Before attempting this boss, everyone in the raid take a 15 minute break to adress their diety of choice. Their request is simple: Please dont let THAT GUY get Marked for Death. if everyone prayed hard, this fight should be extremeley easy, everyone goes about their merry way hitting things, healing things, killing ghosts, and collecting loots. However if your raid diddnt pray hard enough THAT GUY will get marked for death, possibly followed by THAT OTHER GUY, causing a whole bunch of skeletons to run into the raid and 23 people to groan loudly on vent, this simply means you diddnt try hard enough with your prayer, human sacrafice is also an option. Once your bloodthirsty gods have had their fill of human hearts, you can collect your elemental shaman totem and thrown weapon (YOU DISERVE IT!).
Keep Your Eyes peeled for the 3rd and FINAL Installment.
PART 3: BLACK TEMPLE (THE STUNNING CONCLUSION)
If your bad guild has made it this far, you may be on the verge of moving from being one of the better bad guilds to being one of the worse mediocre guilds. This accomplishment is not to be taken lightly, celebrate your achivements! but dont get too #$%^y, as many exciting and dynamic challenges await!
You are in a Guild. In your Guild There are Shamans. In your Shamans' Spellbook There is a Button. This Button is called Brain Heal. In ye olde timey days of yore, healers in MMO's had to engage in the laborious task of selecting the targets they wished to heal. But those days are over thanks to the stunning healing technology available to every shaman in the form of Brain Heal (It does the thinking for you!). Employ the Brain Heal and recive epics from this boss. Another fun thing about this encounter is that you get to use amplify magic, I dont know exactly what is fun about that, but I always like having amplify magic, its like a little white hand waving hi to you for the entire encounter. Perhaps I am losing my mind(although these are no longer necessary for raiding thanks to brain heal).
Reliquary Of Souls:
Things that Will Wipe you on Reliquary of Souls(100% true wipes):
1) Shadow Word Death Crit
2) Fatfingered Kick
3) Left Healthstone in My Other Bag
4) Shadow Word Death Crit
5) Vent Arguement Over which face Essence OF Souls Poops From
6) Not enough RAAAAAAGGGEEEE to Spell Reflect
7) Shadow Word Death Crit
Phase 1 of this fight is 2-3 weeks long and involves farming trash for heart of darknesses.
Phase 2 of this fight is 1 week long and involves attuning a leatherworker to Black temple so that you can craft leather Shadow Resist Gear
Phase 3 of this Fight has been Intentionally Left Blank
Phase 4 of this fight requires players to equip their shadow resist gear and turn their spell detail level all the way down
Phase 5: ?
Phase 6: Profit
INTERMISSION FOR THE WORST DESIGNED TRASH MOB EVER: 1-SHOT the ROBOT
All thoughout your World Of Warcraft Raiding Career, you have been preparing for this fight, From Magmadar to Magtheredon, Ragnaros to Rage Winterchill, you have learned not to stand in bad things. Well My friends its time for all that experence to pay off because Illidari council is the SUPER BOWL OF NOT STANDING IN THINGS! this fight has So many things not to stand in including: Concencrate, Blizzard, Flamestrike, the general area around the mage guy and much much more. The other amazing thing about this fight is that whenever someone dies no matter how early or late or how preventable or unavoidable their death, that person is 100% guranteed to claim that their healthstone was on cooldown. Cherish these moments folks, you only live once.
stay tuned for part 4 the REAL REAL STUNNING CONCLUSION: ILLIDAN THE BETRAYER
BT is the best raid ever :<
Does every member of a raid need to be attuned to gain entry to the temple, or do only a few need to be attuned?
The opposite of the Pink Temple and Skull of Barbie.
as of WOTLK do u still need to do the quests? even at 80?
if so LAME!
can i see a screenshort of the Azeroth from space Easter Egg?
Can Black Temple be 10-manned with level 80's? And if so, how many tank, heals would you need?
You didnt include Illidan so I'm pasteing it here:
Well congratulations baddies, you are just 1 step away from the end of the pve raiding line. This ones for all the marbles and after its all over, you will have walked away with the privlage of saying "I, have SLAIN Illidan" Your WoW forum trolling potental will be heightened considerably, your epeen will be legthened likewise, and may also experence some increased girth. Now that i have piqued your interest heres how you do it:
First Impressions: Illidan is Tiny
For the Boss of the whole goddam game, Illidan is really freaking small, this is GAURANTEED to be your official first impression. Your secoond impression will be that illidan dosent care that you /dance or /train at him. Once Illidan starts his speech, you will have your third impression.....actually let me stop myself here, you are probally expecting me to make some wisecrack regarding your level of preparedness for this encounter, I wont engage in such petty tomfoolery, instead let me state for the record that your duplicity....is hardly suprising.
Phase 1: Chillin with Illin
The Fight Will Start and You Will notice one thing quickly: He hits HARD. Use your phase 1 attempts to get the sheer joy of wiping to runaway parasitic infection out of your system. If you are melee DPS on this fight you will quickly observe that Illidan jumps really high, but fear not, as hitting the air where his body just was does the same amount of damage as hitting illidan himself. Once your Mages l2frost nova and your tank l2sheild block, its time for:
Phase 2: Dinner is Served.
Chef Illidan has prepared a special meal for your raid: The Flames of azzinoth, and he encourages you to have a taste, but I would personally advise against it unless you are wearing full FR gear. Fans of bright colors will ejoy this phase: featuring Neon Green Fire, neon Blue Lazers, and Neon Blue Fire behind the Neon Blue lazers! As per WoW Raiding rule 47.2(b) You still Shouldnt stand in the fire. This phase is also where your warlock tank reveals he fergot to equip his Shadow Res Gear.
Phase 3: Like Phase 1 But Different!
Phase 3 Is an exciting and dynamic phase that is exactly the same as phase 1 except for something called agonozing flames. In order to not get agonizing flames you have to spread out. As a result your raid leader will spend phase three yelling on vent "SPREAD OUT" and "HEY SPREAD THE !#!% OUT" Eventually Illidan will get tired of his incessant whining and decide to start Phase 4:
Phase 4: Our Warlock Tank is French Canadian
Phase 4 is where Illidan gets Huge, everyone runs away from him, then you hope that you dont get demoned. You also have to spread out (when do you NOT have to spread out?). When other people get demoned you mess with their heads and pretend you arent going to kill it until it gets really close then you execute it, or at least thats what I do. If YOU get demoned you say something to the effect hey I got demoned, and then hope that you are well liked.
Phase 5: ITS A TRAP!
When Illidan reaches 30% Everyone Gets a sweet shadow bubble thing and then some guy with a hula hoop comes and talks crap to illidan. Then Hula Hoop guy runs someplace hilariously inconvienent such as directly against the back wall and drops a trap. Now in theory these traps are for illidan, they weaken him and make him take extra damage. In reality though the traps are actually traps for your raid that mess with your positioning and cause you to wipe to parasites. Most times you just ignore the trap and kill the mans, in which case its time for:
Phase 6: The Afterglow
Congratulations on your double vanquisher, healing cloak with spellhaste, felhunter on a stick and leather Bracer pattern. You are also gauranteed to get a warglave of azzinoth, unless someone in the raid diserves one.
More Important then loot however is that now you have killed illidan you are now offically "Mr. Cool"
Try not to @#$% of too many "casuals" with your "2 button epics" and always remember that all your accomplishments mean nothing because they are MONTHS BEHIND.
It's in the ShadowMoon area of Outland.
"This could end up being the LAST boss of wow"? um... yeah, like not gonna happen! Don't forget, at the very least, that Zul'Aman hasn't been patched yet, and probably wont be until AFTER Black Temple, considering that its currently the instance with the least information floating around. Its definitely possible that it will be more difficult than BT, and with a stronger boss (though that of course would depend on the intended size of the raid...)
But even ignoring ZA; saying that Illidan will be the 'last boss of wow' is the same as saying no more dungeons, which IN TURN is saying no more expansions.
Do you think anyone is going to be satisfied without the chance to one day square off against the Lich King in an eventual Northrend expansion. An expansion, which by the way should also include Anub'Arak and maybe even a return of Kel'thuzad, since its very possible he doesn't die for good at Naxxramas.
That's at least TWO bosses after Illidan, and aside from Northrend there are *plenty* of places on Azeroth that await exploration, with lots of possible creeps from warcraft lore to take the position of eventual bosses.
Aside from Ragnaros, there are still three Elemental Lieutenants remaining, with Neptulon as the most powerful; perfect for a 'Great Sea' expansion which could also give the opportunity to battle the Naga queen Azshara, who according to the WotA trilogy was so powerful that only a demon like Archimonde was able to even startle her. Now *there's* boss material.
And don't forget the Burning Legion. Azgalor and Mephistroth are still very much alive and could conceivably appear as bosses in a final expansion that tops out at lvl 100, ending with the last great 40-man raid against Kil'Jaeden himself; the *only* encounter I am willing to accept as a candidate for 'final boss'.
If we are talking about a final boss, it can only be Sargeras. He created the Burning Legion and told Kil´Jaeden and Archimonde to fight in his name, making them his "#$%^&es" :)
He isnt destroyed yet, though he (in Medivh´s body) was slain by Khadgar and Lothar in Karazhan.
His body wasnt destroyed, but was put in The Tomb of Sargeras in a Kaldorei Temple on the bottom of the Maelstrom by Aegwynn. Which makes a final expansion underwater more and more plausible.
Plus that his spirit still roams the Twisting Nether looking for a body strong enough to hold his essence.
Final final boss = Sargeras
That's definitely a valid point, but I wonder how it could be implemented realistically. I suppose it would have to be a Medivh scenario all over with Sargeras possessing a weaker body, that would allow you to defeat him at a reasonable level...
Alternatively, if you had to fight Sargeras in his full demonic form, even in a weakened state it would have to be at least a lvl 150 encounter and they'd have to expand the raid size to, like, 60 or so :D
What exactly is that statement based on? Has Blizzard actually announced that it'll all end with the Lich King? Or do you at least have a sound argument for that?
Blizzard isn't going to give up this cash cow by tossing the "end" boss now or anytime soon. So abolish that thought. Like it was said above we have Northrend and Undermine as possible new locations or money making expansions in Blizzard's eyes. And even if Northrend is an added location Arthas/Frozen Throne can be patched in later when blizz feels guilds have "geared up for it". So speculation on "end boss"? pointless... look for sales to drop or accounts being canceled to make Blizz nervous and try to attract players back for that type of thing to occur.
This isent the last boss! Kil'Jaeden might be or Arthas, but you wont see anything from them before 2008 ..
I think somepeople's parents should teach them how to be polite.
how do u get attuned for this place and when is it saposed to open?
Yall know your forgetting one of the most forgotten bosses there are.... Nessy! From the Deeprun Trams! We will need to be able kill her before the game ends.

- But awsome gear still required :P
Complete the Tablets of Baa'ri (Aldor / Scryers) quest line which is a fairly lengthly questline in Shadowmoon Valley which also requires you to find an NPC in Tempest Keep: The Arcatraz.
Venture into Serpentshrine Cavern and speak to Seer Olum who is located in Fathom-Lord Karathress's room and accept The Secret Compromised. You must kill Fathom-Lord Karathress for him to come out.

Xi'ri will give you A Distraction for Akama which rewards you with .
BT is a 25 man raid. second hardest now that the sunwell is out.
the boss's themselfs need you to be at least t5 geared ssc/tk but the random trash mobs are easy for a kara raiding guild do to as we did them in my guild. we did however give it a shot on first boss High Warlord Najentus. got him to 96% too but problem is keeping the raid alive as we were very under geared.
About adding Sargeras as the final, final boss of WoW, it makes absolute sense that he would be, as he is the be all, end all of power. I've pondered the idea that, instead of Arthas dying in Icecrown, Ner'Zhul dies and his armor is void of power. Now, for those of you who have played through SWP, Kil'Jaeden dies in the end, so heres where my theory comes in. Arthas pledges himself to the burning legion and finds a way to raise the tomb of Sargeras becoming its own continent of sorts.
Then, during the final push to his tombs inner sanctum we have another event akin to the opening of Ahn'Qiraj, Horde and alliance gathering supplies and a giant war to sum it up. During the giant war, all the capital cities are invaded by the Burning Legion, powerful, elite demons raze the major cities including Shattrath/Dalaran, whatever other neutral cities that exist at the time. During this time, every player, alliance or horde will be able to go to the Tomb of Sargeras and do battle with the demon ,a full world raid boss.
He will of course have lieutenants and Arthas assisting him. You basically fight him constantly until his health reaches 1/4 till dead(similar to Murmur) at which point his incomplete demon body is destroyed and his spirit takes Arthas and retreats into the Tomb. This sets up his raid instance. The Inner Sanctum(or some name).
I don't why I decided to type that up, figured might as wel lthrow it out ther, judge how you will/
How Long Is The Black Temple?
Love this dungeon, many great drops, and challenging.
The final boss in WoW will be Hogger
LOL @ Hogger...
hey how bout someone makes a post about the the bosses and dungeon and crap rather than all your stupid opinions about blizzard's political structure or w/e...
