Unfortunately the attunement is long, yet very worth it. As a starting raider, you'll need every ounce of Fire Resistance you can get. The neck piece you get will have +15 FR, and will allow you to enter Onyxia's Lair
Unlike other instances, she resets every 5 days (Not 3 like the post above). So make sure to kill her every time she respawns as these days most guilds know what to do and it's only a 15min job. She drops the tier 2 head pieces which is a fun prize plus a 18 slot bag. Her head can be looted as well and turned in for a FR piece (Which like I said, you'll need every ounce of)
There are three stages to this Dragon.
1. Aggro control. - The main tank basicly gains as much aggro as possible and as fast as he/she can. Around 97% the rest of the raid can start slow dps (auto attack).
2. Stage 2 starts at 70% - Onyxia enters the air and continues to damage the raid by spitting out fire balls and her infamous "Deep breathe" which aoe's a good portion of her lair doing huge ammounts of damage (This often whipes raids) The only way to stop it is to keep your raid spread out nicely. All range dps should be killing her and everyone should DoT at this point. Also melee classes need to take out the whelps that help at this stage.
3. Landing - once onyxia lands make sure the MT has aggro, then you basicly just steadily dps her down. Congratulations!
the attunement for this is crazy long, but doable in 1 day. although it might sound crazy, 3 of my friends completed this quest in that time. for some, finding rexxar is the hardest part, for some, it might be the 'wiping with pugs on drakk' part. whatever it is, this quest is way too long and way too hard. easy with guildies though =)
Depending on how gear your raid is, there is any ways to do phase 1
If your raid is mostly geared out in atleast half T2 or more your tank will gather as much aggro as possible. Warlocks, Hunter, Priest will throw up all dots and stings. Rogues will gather 5 combo points , warriors will build up as much rage as they can and mages will use either arcane missles or frostbolts ( onyxia is immune to fire), warlocks will keep redoting and everyonce in awhile they will throw a shadow bolt , and hunters will use arcane shot and auto shoot.
If your raid is not mostly geared out in at least half T2 you should just let your tank gather aggro and do pertty much the same thing as i stated above with the only changes. Instead of placing dots on onyxia just have all casters wand her while rogues and warriors do the same. At every 10% example 90%, 80% etc. stop all attacks and let the main tank gather aggro. This will ensure that the main tank has 100% aggro and will keep onyxia from whipeing the raid.
During this first phase everyone will stay under the main tank by atleast 10,000 on the aggro meater ( the best one to use is ktm threat meater), but go all out to get onyxia to phase 2 as quick as possible. At 75% pallians should rebuff the raid. at 69% onyxia shouild get ready to move into phase 2. At the time that onyxia moves into phase 2 all rogues should use their 5 combo points on eviscerate and warriors should use their recklessness. This sould take onyxia's hit points down at lease 1 or 2%.
During Phase 2 every one should be spread out in the whole cave and this is where whelp groups will come into play. All mages and warriors will be taking care of the waves of welps that spawn. The rogues along with the main tank will stay under onyxia doing full dps. Warlocks will keep dots on onyxia at all times should be at least 2 dots per lock. Hunters will be spread out more than others and during this whole phase they should be doing their discracting shots. All dots should be kept on onyxia untill 45%. It is important to make sure every one is spread out as much as possible, because if too many are in one area onyxia could do a deep breathe. A deep breathe can whipe a raid because the whole room just goes up in flames. In the case of a deep breathe everyone in the raid should move to the very outer edges this will reduce the chance of taking too much fire damage and possiblity of dieing.
At 40-45% onyxia will enter phase 3. At this time all rogues should vanish and priest should fade. Everyone should move to the northwest corner of the cave. If alliance and have a dwarf priest a fear ward should be placed on the main tank. During this phase only priest dots and hunter stings should be used since they have ways to reduce aggro. Onyxia will fear everyone during this phase and to keep unwanted people being feared into the whelp caves everyone but the rogues and warriors should get up on the northwestern ledge. Warlocks and mages should use their wands to keep from gaining aggro. As long as everyone controls their aggro onyxia should go down in a matter of mins.
Onyxia drops all T2 Helms and her head which can be turned in for a buff and a choice of rewards of a trinket, ring, or neck. Once all loot has been taken off of onyxia a 315 skinner can skin onyxia and should get Onyxia Scales which is use to make onyxia scale cloaks which is needed in BWL.
Onyxia's Lair access is granted by doing you're faction's attunement chains.
Alliance Attunement chain begins in Marshal's Refuge, in The Burning Steppes. Dragonkin Menace is the quest name which begins from Helendis Riverhorn.
Horde Attunement Quest begins in Kargath, Badlands.
You go up the tower and there you will find Warlord Goretooth, you have to talk with him for a minute or so and he will give you a letter that will give you the Warlord's Command quest.
Once you complete both of these quest chains you will recieve
The Drakefire Amulet -
( Your Onyxia Lair Key).
Good Luck with onyxia!
Onyxia's Gate, the entrance to Onyxia'a Lair, is at 56, 71 in Dustwallow Marsh.
Can't one enter the instance after someone opened the door, or will it be something like "You are not attuned to Onyxia's Lair" ?
The door's easy to open, just clicking it will open it. Trying to step through the portal will net you a list of errors depending on what your missing. (Attunement, raid group, level, tacos, etc...)
Does anyone know if the prequest is still needed when you have a warlock that can summon you inside the instance (which off course did the prequest)? The description above says you need to have the
in the inventory to enter through the portal so I think it would work but can someone confirm this please? :)

When King Varian Wyrnn returns to Stormwind, the attunement requirements for Onyxia's Lair will be removed due to the disappearance of Lady Katrana Prestor and Highlord Bolvar Fordragon's movement to Northrend.
As a holy paly with lots of mp5, i was wondering if this would be soloable, has anyone done it?
no chain any more in patch 3.0.2
No longer nessacery to have necklace to enter this dungeon
As of patch 3.0.2, no key or quest is required to enter
There's only one boss in this raid? it must be hard
On top of the crappy-long quest line, it was a complete inconvenience, at least for alliance, to have to hike all the way out to Theramore to kill one boss, ahh!
Surely you jest, sir. If it's an inconvenience to you to catch the boat to Theramore as Alliance, surely you would crap your pants doing the escort portion into SW as Horde.
just 4 manned this. It takes a while to kill her but she doesnt hit hard. lol. 47g drop for each of us. this is going to become a weekly routine
Not sure how you people are soloing it. I wanted to take a quick peek but I couldn't get in tonight. It said I have to have the amulet and be in a raid group. Guess I have to do the quests now. :(
Managed to solo it at 70 as a Retribution Paladin.
Now at level 80, its a complete joke.
A little tip, you can skip all of the trash by hugging walls and jumping on the edges.
As a Holy paladin I spent about 35 minutes soloing her. Had Seal of Wisdom up and never went oom, spammed Holy shock and Consecration, Judgement of Wisdom.
Sacred Shields absorbs pretty much everything, also use Fire resistance aura since the fire is the only thing that hurts. I can actually stand in the deep breath now, without worrying about dying. I believe it hit me for about 500 2-3 times.
Death Knights, Paladins, Druids, Possibly Warlocks and Hunters can solo this easy at 80.
Good luck :) Drops about 170g~ + 20g vendor trash. Still farming for Judgement head :(
Solo'd as an Enhancement Shaman with Epic 10 and 25 man gear. Pretty easy even though phase 2 gets a bit hectic at times. Took me 13 minutes from start to finish. Onxyia dropped Orb of Deception, I think I will try and kill Onyxia weekly now.
Make sure you keep Water Shield up and always use Maelstrom weapon to heal yourself.
Solo'ed as a 80 dk using random blue's (quest/dungeons). Very easy for some reason...
You need to invite some guy to your group and convert to a raid to get inside.
You need to be in a raid group to enter all raid istances.
You can just invite a friend to a party, promote the party to a raid group, and then you can enter alone.. And your friend stay in stormwind ;)
Easy way to make 57-160g depending on if you 3 man or solo it.
just 3 manned today at level 74 to get a feel for it. 57g each
Just tried soloing as a lvl 80 hunter, got her down to 40ish% a few times but dealing with tons of whelps,breaths and the unfortunate despawning of my pet when i was across the room fd regenning health was enough for 1 day.
Solo'd as a 80 Prot Pally in mostly Heroic / badge gear.
Was pretty fun, first phase just tank and spank, keep your mana up.
Second phase, as a Prot Pally I let the welps hit me so I could get mana from Sanctuary
Third Phase, tank and spank. At one point she knocked me into a hollowed out part in the wall with welps in it. All i did was let them hit me again so I could mana up.
Really fun fight to solo, took me about 25 minutes. 7 Items dropped, 130g.
I don't think many classes could solo this, mostly Paladins and DKs.
Just solo'd for the second week in a row. Very easy with some pots, and bandages. Keep pet on onyxia, make sure mend pet is always up, DPS enough to go fast but not fast enough to pull in first phase.
Second phase, just leave pet on onyxia with mend on. AoE all the whelps down with 1 or 2 volley. Feign every 30 sec or so when onxiya is casting at you to avoid extra dmg, bandage when needed then avoid deep breaths. change over to viper as needed.
Having viper on while dealing with the adds caused problems, as they did not die fast enough and caused my health to drop extra. Once she lands keep mend pet up and finish her off.
can a boomkin (
solo her?or would i run oom from huricaning teh welps in phase 2?
I just solo'd Ony on my 80 Holy paladin, wearing a mix of Holy and Ret gear, mostly blues with a couple epics. It took 45 minutes, but was totally worth it because she dropped my T2 helm!
It was so easy as a pally, just use Divine Plea on every cooldown, keep yourself healed at all times, and don't worry about whelps, just kill them with consecrate. I also used Seal and Judgement of Wisdom, never went below 30% mp.
As an FYI, Onyxia can be engaged by the
Crashin' Thrashin' Racer Controller
We were messing around for the achievement and found this out accidently.
Onyxia's gate for the entrance is at 56,71 at Dustwallow Marsh.In the road of Onyxia watch out for her guard the Onyxia warders
For some reason I couldnt find it from your directions... but then I searched around the general area and got it. Your co-ordinates are correct... but if there is anyone out there who struggled like me go to:
and you should see the dragon head shaped cave to your south east.
Why do you guys say she drops 130-160g? She only dropped 51g with me, and I solo'd it :/
The amount of gold she drops was lowered in patch 3.0.8 (significantly)
Yeah, just did my weekly solo with my shaman and dropped only 54g :(
Two manned her with a Disc/Holy Priest and an Elemental Shaman, both in just a few epics from badges, heroics, and Naxx, and some quest reward blues and greens. Didn't come close to death. Priest didn't even have to heal alf of the time, just helped DPS.The shammy probably could have solo'd her. Made up wards of 90g from the gold and DE'd items.
2-manned feral druid (tank) and holy/dicipline priest, took about 15-20 mins easy. priest ran out of mana on phase 2 but innervate and she was back up to full. if you are 2 manning this with a priest, dont let them holy nova just use your own AoE
Soloing her is so easy now that Blizzard have nerfed her wealth, last time she dropped 50g, down from like 170g.
Don't think any of her drops have been nerfed though, thankfully.
Pretty easy as Ret in Naxx10 Gear - I'm dropping her in under 11 now, and should be able to get sub-10 minutes once I upgrade my weapon (TS Destroyer)
Couple things to remember:
1. Use Fire Res Aura - you take very little damage, so you can...
2. Switch from Seal of Light/Wis to Command every time your AW is up. You can burn more than 5-6% of her HP by going balls out during the AW period, and if you've juggled SoL/SoW properly, and used Fire Res aura, you should be able to get back to full hp and mana very quickly.
3. Even when she's in the air, you can and
attack her. Your Consecrate and DS will take care of the whelps (This is pretty much the only time you have to use Cons. If you're cruising along in any other phase with high hp/mana, feel free to drop a couple Consecrates).
Then the usual stuff - use Divine Plea whenever it's off CD, and don't let Sacred Shield drop off.
I have been soloing her for a few weeks in a row since the expension as my 80 enhance shammy, today, I was not able to kill her, seems like there is more whelps and she uses deep breath more.
She definitely seems harder to kill now
Just two-manned her - I'm lvl 80 Shadow Priest in mostly 10-man Naxx gear and my son, a lvl 80 DK geared in quest blues with a couple of purple crafted items. We only received 26 gold each, however. What's with the loot?
Is this possaible to solo as a 80 fury warrior? mix of T7 epics and blues
Im a ret pally, in Titansteel Gear. Not too much, 3400ap, 21k health
Well. First thing, is that Onyxia has been nerfed really badly, since that I solo her in a matter of 15 minutes, her gold has been reducted from around 160g to a measly sum of 51g. She drops around 3 or 4 epics, 3 BoE rares, a onyxia hide backpack and her head of course, which gives you a choice of 4 items.
It is a very. very easy fight,
Pop Fire Resistance Aura,
Phase 1 is tank her at the back wall so she doesnt through you into the whelps using wing buffet. Which will become a major problem. Just keep your heals up to full. Using my Seal of Wisdom, to keep my mana freshed, and Judgement of Wisdom, and when my health gets below 60% just use Holy Light.
When Phase 2 comes around, she flys up in the air and casts fireball. This is usually when her health is at 65%, also whelps come out into the middle of the lair, and attack you. Fairly easy to kill around 3k health per one. Dont be tricked. But you can attack her when she is floating up in the air.
Phase 3 is basic, she casts bellowing roar every 10 -15 seconds of the last phase, which fears you for 2 - 3 seconds. Just tank her at the back wall. So you wont run into the whelp nests and cause more trouble. LOL.
She gives an OK, loot. But I'd prefer to run the 4 Dragons of Nightmare.
Gatman, Blackrock (US)
I killed her today, this was the setup:
lvl 80 Prot Pala
lvl 80 Prot Pala
lvl 69 Resto Druid
lvl 68 Blood DK (me)
Technically, we just tanked and spanked, she died pretty quickly cause of the palas dmg. I had fun, even though she didnt put up with a real fight.
What is the minimum level required to enter Onyxia's Lair?
I just solo'ed her as an 80 feral druid, tank specced. I one-shot her with no strategy going in.
Phase one was so easy, just tank n spank, I used Frenzied Regeneration once, but it probably wasn't necessary. I am also an herbalist so I have Lifeblood and with the Frenzied Regen glyph I could get back to full health every 3 minutes.
Phase 2 was annoying because I had trouble finding her, but the whelps would go down with a couple of swipes.
Deep breath barely did anything, same with the fireballs, but I was a little low on health during parts of Phase 2.
Overall it was quite easy, just took a while because I was often rage starved so couldn't do as much damage as I would have liked.
This is gonna become a weekly thing for me, easy 50+ gold and maybe even get a T2 helm, would be cool to get.
As an Elemental Shaman, I found this fight is very easy. It takes me between 10 - 20 minutes each time. I have 5/5 T7.5 and Heroic items but I still was doing this when I first hit 80.
For Elemental Shamans looking to do this, just spam Lightning Bolt till she drops due to how mana efficent it is. The Totems I used where (Stoneskin / Fire Resist / Wrath of Air / Totem of Wrath). Just keep up Water Shield and Thunderstorm each time you can to keep 100% mana up pretty much the whole time. At the beginning of Phase 2, use your Fire Elemental & it will make things easier being immune to fire while taking care of adds. On Phase 3 instead of Stoneskin, use Tremor(Which you should know to do anyways). Just juggle LB's and heal effiecently due to P1/P3 knockbacks which can push you out and then she ports you back which can be deadly if your low. In Phase 2, eating Deep Breaths are nothing, just start a heal when you see it and it's like it never happened.
All in all, you should never go below 80% mana and just take your time. I hope you enjoyed this guide & Good Luck =)
Took my lvl 73 ret pally and a friends 61 hunter & also a lvl 80 ret pally. The hunter died of course but me and the other ret 2 maned Onyxia and her friends in 30 minutes! HECK YES! xD
people with no cord. On map
I want to point out that you do NOT have to be level 55 to enter or participate in this raid. I am not yet sure of the level restriction, but as soon as I know I will update this information. At this time of writing, the lowest person in the raid is level 53.
Question.........if i were to go in as a 54 priest (or 55 i can get it easily) with a 68 pally prot pally, me healing, would it be possible to down her? And no im not crazy but i really think we can pull this off.
and we would skip the ttrash mobs btw
how long does onyxia take to finish for the horde? an estimation would be nice :)
Ive easily soloed her as a feral druid. in Ground phase i used bear form, to get reduced damage. The Damage was lower, but i made it out fine. My improved aspect of the pack kept me in a nice health balance.
During Air phase i went into cat form. (luckily i can attack her with my melee abs, or i would have no chance) to deal more damage, besides her fireballs took less hp on me than melee. Besides my Improved aspect of the pack kept me healed. But sometimes i got low on hp and healed while she was moving to another fire range. And i killed whelps when they showed up, to make sure they dont overwhelm me.
When she landed again, i went bear form again to be able to get reduced damage. Becuz if i went cat, she would deal more damage. And if i tried to heal while she was chasing me, the damage would be even greater, and i would loose more than gain. She also kept fearing me with bellowing roar, but that was not much to worry about.
It took around 35 minutes to kill her, but it was alot of gold to loot, plus a 16 slot bag, and in addiction i didnt have to roll for the loot XD
I havn't seen any comments of mages soloing Onyxia...
is it possible to solo as a lvl 80 mage, and if so, what spec would be best?
Just solo'd her as an 80 Death Knight (Unholy spec) in a mixture of Naxx10 and Naxx25 gear (with Fury of the Five Flights and Greatness). She went down pretty easily in approx 8 minutes (according to Skada). Didn't have any fire resist, I didn't try to avoid any of her attacks, and when the whelps came I just dropped Death and Decay and let nature take its course. I angled myself so when she knocked me back it was away from the eggs, I just dealt with fear, and basically ground into her.
Tank and spank. AoE the adds (set it and forget it) and beat her up. Use Death Strike obviously. Bust cooldowns for a faster fight, but you don't need to. Death Pact your ghoul if it comes to that, but it shouldn't. Very easy fight, and lots of gold in a short amount of time.
Correction. At the time he tried it, there was still an attunement, so he wouldn't be able to open the door. Only people with the necklace could open it.
That's atleast how it worked for me back in the old days.
Balance Druids (Level 80) shouldn't have any problems soloing this at level 80. Make sure you don't spend all your mana and you'll be fine.
Any one know what some of the better gear is to solo her as a 80 DK? Want to know.
She has lurked in her lair and done battle with the many brave adventurers who travelled to that familiar location over the years. Now, in honor of the World of Warcraft 5-year anniversary, the dreaded brood mother Onyxia is being revamped to make a return to the forefront of Azeroth, as part of our big plans for the upcoming 3.2.2 content patch.
This permanent update to Onyxia will convert the dungeon into 10- and 25-player modes. We will be adding new items to Onyxia’s loot table that have the same model as some of the classic loot from this dungeon, like Tier 2 helms, with stats updated to match the current level of content. There will be a special new item too: a normal drake-sized 310% speed flying mount modeled after Onyxia herself called an Onyxia Broodling. We will also be updating the encounter mechanics to be more fitting for modern raiding, but we can guarantee players will get to experience the frightening horror of deep breaths once again.
Then for a limited time, after the 5-year anniversary event officially begins in November, anybody who logs in will receive an Onyxia Brood Whelpling pet.
We’re very excited to bring this classic encounter back to provide a fun new experience for both new and veteran players. Further details will be available in the near future, and we will be setting up the Public Test Realms soon to help test out this fight along with all the new content we have planned for the patch. Keep an eye on the forums for updates!
I'm going to bet that one of the achievements will be: Throw more DOTs!

hm remade tier 2 helms? we're gonna need a newer blackwing lair....
onyxia is part of the ahn qiraj quest chain and also needed for quel serar,
will these still be obtainable?
50 DKP MINUS!
In 3.2.2 Onyxia will be a level 80 10/25 raid dungeon in honor of WoW's fifth anniversary. She will drop loot with updated stats and will have a very slight chance of dropping a 310% speed mount.
Ill give a shot at explaining it since people are having trouble:
1) Do Dragonkin Menace quest in the Burning Steppes:
2) This will start off a long chain of talk to this person, talk to that person kind of thing that will have you hopping back n forth from SW to Lakeshire. Eventually it will lead back to back where you got the 1st quest. He will tell you to travel into Blackrock Depths and find a captured guy in jail.
3) Turn in his quest. Now, any mob in BRD will have a chance to drop a crumpled up note, which starts off the next part.
4) Return to the guy in jail. He will give you a quest to retreive some things for him in BRD.
5) After that, he will ask to be escorted out. Be sure to clear the mobs around the prison and the ring of law before starting it. Even then, its quite difficult.
6) Go back to Stormwind Keep, watch the chaos ensue around the king.
7) Go to Winterspring, get the quest to kill the general in upper Blackrock Spire.
8) Get his blood... only 1 per raid. Go back to Winterspring to get the Drakefire Amulet, and your key into the instance.
u alliance have it easy compared to horde for the key. the steps for horde are...
Do Warlord's Command In LBRS. Kill Omokk, Voone, Wyrmthalak and retrieve the documents.
Take Documents to Thrall and then go to UBRS and kill Rend Blackhand and Loot his head. Take the head back to orgrimmar. (warchiefs blessing)
go to talk to Rexxar in Desolace
talk to the hag in western plaguelands
Go to UBRS and collect 20 Dragoneyes from the dragon guards
Go To the hag and get the emberstrife talisman
talk to emberstrife in Dustwallow
Kill the 3 Dragons around the world (One in Swamp of Sorrow, Winterspring, Tanaris) i.e. Test of Skulls
Kill Axtroz in Wetlands for final test of skull
Go talk to Emberstrife and get quest for blood
Go to UBRS and kill General Drakkisath. Loot Blood
Talk to Rexxar and get Key Fused. Now u have the key to Onyxia's Lair.
Reply Posted by revoluti0n on 2005-03-29 00:32:33 Alliance quest chain:
1) Dragonkin Menace (Elite) from Halrendis in Morgan's Vigil, Burning Steppes.
2) Talk to Marshal Maxwell in Morgan's Vigil.
3) Talk to Magistrate Solomon in Lakeshire.
4) Talk to Highlord Bolvar Fordragon in Stormwind.
5) Talk to Magistrate Solomon in Lakeshire.
6) Talk to Marshal Maxwell in Morgan's Vigil.
7) Find Marshal Windsor in Blackrock Depths jail.
8) Return to Maxwell.
9) Find a random "A Crumpled Up Note" drop from a random dwarf in Blackrock Depths.
10) Take said note to Marshal Windsor.
11) Retrieve Marshal Windsor's Lost Information from General Angerforge and Golem Lord Argelmach (two pieces).
12) Escort Marshal Windsor out of Blackrock Depths jail.
13) Meet Marshal Windsor at gates of Stormwind.
14) Escort Marshal Windsor to Stormwind Keep to unveil who Lady Katrana Prestor really is. (Spoiler: Onyxia)
15) Stand way the hell back while Bolvar fights the elite dragons.
16) Travel to Winterspring to find Haleh. Find lots of elite blue dragons and run to the back of the cave, where you'll see a rune on the floor. It's hard to see, so you will die a few times.
17) Haleh tells you to go kill Drakkisath in Upper Blackrock Spire. You will need 15 fairly skilled players for this quest, including yourself.
18) Once you have the "Blood of the Black Dragon Champion", return to Haleh. Drakkisath drops only ONE of these per kill. Yes, one for the entire 15 man group. Not one per person, one per group.
19) Return to Haleh with the Blood and claim your Drakefire Amulet. My 59 paladin now has his. :)
To the 1 that was asking if onyxia was 1 of the dragons that enchanted the world tree, here is the right info:
Alexstrasza, the Lifebinder, placed a single, enchanted acorn within the heart of the Well of Eternity.
Nozdormu, the Timeless, placed an enchantment upon the World Tree
Ysera, the Dreamer, also placed an enchantment upon the World Tree by linking it to her own realm, the ethereal dimension known as the Emerald Dream
Onyxia is not 1 of them.
Alot of stupid questions and statements here:S /shrug. I'll try to answer a few of them and make some statements of my own though:
1. The Horde quest IS actually way harder, and thats not whining.
2. The questline to get the key/necklace starts in BS for ALliance with Dragonkin Menace, and in Kargath, Badlands with Warlord's Command for Horde.
3. EVERYONE, that means 40 people, needs to have the key/necklace to enter Onyxia's Lair.
4. You must be at least 58 (on Horde side that is) to do the first quest in the Onyxiaquestline. To do Onyxia, atlest 90 % of the raid should be lvl 60.
5. Yes, she drops tier two helms (b.i. Helm of Wrath)
6. Ragnaros in MC is probably the hardest boss in WoW.
7. She has been killed with few people, but dont kid yourself, she is HARD and those who have managed to kill her with less than 30 people must be considered experts with great equipment and tremendous skills.
8. This instance is for High-end guilds who know what they are doing (today that is quite a few) and many of you noobs who write here won't ever be able to kill her ^^
there no way thats possible people have trouble 40 manning her and some of the guys that help have all tier two sets i dont think 5 manning is possible
Walkthrough - Drakefire Amulet:
1) Go to Kargath and speak to Warlord Goretooth in the tower. Click his conversation icon repeatedly to receive Warlord Goretooth's Command. Use this item to receive the quest, Warlord's Command.
Slay Highlord Omokk, War Master Voone, and Overlord Wyrmthalak. Recover Important Blackrock Documents. Return to Warlord Goretooth in Kargath when the mission has been accomplished.
Important Blackrock Documents: 0/1
War Master Voone slain: 0/1
Highlord Omokk slain: 0/1
Overlord Wyrmthalak slain: 0/1
2) You will need a full party of five for Blackrock Spire(BRS). The documents spawn randomly at one of the three bosses above and only one per instance can be acquired. This quest may NOT be raided!

13) Emberstrife will begin a mini-series of quests titled The Test of Skulls. The first such quest in this series is The Test of Skulls, Scryer.

Onyxia's Lair can not be entered without a raid party, and each member of the raid party must equip their Drakefire Amulet... the Onyxia's Lair Key. Obtaining the key is NOT a simple task, requiring the completion of a quest chain that is 16 steps long. Included in the chain is a trip to BRD, LBRS, 3 trips to UBRS, and quests to kill 4 elite dragons of Azeroth. I have outlined the quest chain below. Quests names are in bold. Questgivers are given in (parenthesis): followed by a brief description of the quest. Important notes are italicized.

I was there earlier today and it said "You have to be in a raid group, at least level 50 and have the Drakefire Amulet to enter."
I was level 70, alone, and without a drakefire amulet. I don't have any further info.
From what I understand from the WoW forums is that they removed the attunement and it (the Drakefire Amulet) is no longer needed to enter the instance. I have yet to confirm this, as I just now found this out.
Soloed as a fresh level 80 Ret Paladin and the only epics I had was the epic 2h axe from heroic halls of lightning and epic mail bracers from Heroic Nexus. Rest were level 78 blues made from blacksmithing (the savage set).
Main thing to worry about in this fight as a Ret paladin is your mana. I'm sitting on 17k hp and 6k mp. Dont worry if your health goes to half or just slightly lower, if your mana pool is above 75% (which it should be 90% of the time), just toss either the instant flash of lights on yourself or a holy light in the event of an "oh &*!@" moment.
Entire thing took me about 30 minutes all the while why finishing off half a bottle of bourbon. If I can do it drunk, you can do it sober.
Too bad Bliz reduced the money dropped by her now its just a kind of /flex thing when u go into the city and turn in the head.
You dont get a feats of Strength for soloing her
i just soloed as prot pally, took 33 mins, she dropped 59g with many items and 2 boe items
dropped mage and pally T2 helmet ( finally wanted helmet :P )
main reason i soloed was because i wondered if there was an achievement for solo.
repairs were 4g 77s btw and got a big profit from her loot.
Soloed as a Holy Pally, all epic PVP gear
Took 30 minutes and 15 seconds.
Just kept Sacred Shield up with RET aura, and Jow and SoW.
Never went below 70% health.
Finished with roughly 98% health and 90% mana.
Got 54g. 2 Blue BOE, 1 green BOE, 5 Purps, and a nice 18 slot bag.
So with vendor sales comes out to be roughly 90g.
Will be farming this every chance I get!
How do you get into the lair to solo? it says you need to be in a raid group to enter.
U dont need key or anything to go down to Onyxa anymore....
i see how this is basically soloable. did it with 10 ppl. 7 of em were like lvl 63. probably could 3 manned it. me our 80 healer and our 80 warlock
Wow this might be the reason their bring back ony, 3rd expansion Cataclysm I think its a bit early for another expansion though, Arthas isnt even out yet and there bring Deathwing, new races, new classes for old races,etc. What do you guys think
You might not see some ! if your level is too high because some quests can already be started under level 50. So you might need to talk to the quest givers directly to see if they offer a quest.
