What does this information mean?


  • A large solo instance, but groups are allowed, consisting of numerous caverns and tunnels containing dozens of multi-mob encounters. You must own the Splitpaw Saga Adventure Pack.
  • The difficulty scales to match your level, between level 20 and 50. The layout of gnoll classes is random; some combinations are harder than others.


There are four entrances, at various places along the Thundermist Road in Thundering Steppes. The entrances are called terraporters.

  • To enter, click on one of the terraporters in the Thundering Steppes and you will receive a darkened shard. Inspect it to receive the quest A Darkened Shard. You may need to move away from the terraporter and return to complete the "I found the cairn" step of the quest. Click on the terraporter to enter the instance.
  • Another version of this zone, called Captive Audience, is triggered if you are hit by a Tesch Mal abductor (level 20) before you manage to click on the terraporter yourself. NOTE: The Captive Audience instance does not contribute toward your Splitpaw access quest.
