Karazhan: A Walkthough

June 18, 2008

This is the final posts in a series covering a full Karazhan clear – mostly from a Main Tank’s Point of View.

So, you want to head into Karazhan for the first time? This series is intended to make the learning curve a bit easier to deal with. These posts provide a walkthrough for both the bosses and the trash.

Karazhan, located in Deadwind Pass, is a 10-man raid which resets once a week. This means that you have 7 days to work on Karazhan, Tuesday-to-Tuesday (in North America) each week. Once you are part of a boss kill, or enter the zone with a group that has defeated a boss, you are locked to the zone for the week.

During the week, the trash associated with each boss resets on their own timers, but can always be forced to reset by a ‘soft-reset’. You can perform a ‘soft-reset’ by simply leaving the instance empty for 30 minutes. This respawns all mobs tied to an undefeated boss, despawns all trash associated with downed bosses, and randomizes Moroes’s four adds.

A full clear of the zone provides 22 Badges of Justice, and can be done in about 3 hours – provided you take in an T4/T5 geared group that is already familiar with the zone. While learning 3 hours may only be enough to see Attumen and Moroes.
