Quest Series

Long ago the rugged Butcherblock Mountains served as the training grounds for young dwarves emerging from the gates of the underground city of Kaladim. Now, however, the mighty dwarven city has fallen to hordes of kobolds, bugbears, and other malicious beasts. While the Irontoe Brigade prepares to take back their beloved home, young adventurers are being asked to assist the dwarves in cleansing their lands of the numerous threats found in the mountains.


These achievements are exclusive to Butcherblock Mountains.


Though not required to begin the Butcherblock Docks series, the quest at the Greater Faydark Griffon Tower is a lead-in for those first entering from the Greater Faydark.

GU55 Changes

Game Update #55
February 16,2010

With GU55 many quest NPCs move from the Butcherblock docks and outlying areas to the top of the ramp up above, making a consolidated quest hub in the The Highlands. The Sarnak encampment down the beach has moved to the docks including the griffon to Gorowyn (which now also services Darklight Wood and Frostfang Sea), which is at 754, 56, 569 . There's a new quest hub near the Lesser Faydark zone called Three Roads Outpost; several outlying NPCs have moved there.

The Butcherblock Griffons no longer require a quest for access.

You can now access Steamfont Mountains from Butcherblock Mountains: there's a new road leading there on the Road to Lesser Faydark at -766, 100, 374 .

Characters of the right levels for Butcherblock Mountains might also enjoy Kaladim, which was revamped to a level 30-36 heroic zone with Game Update 55.
