All new dungeons in WoW WotLK Classic with entrance and level requirement

WoW WotLK Classic Map Fjord Castle Utgarde Dungeon Entrance

With Wrath of the Lich King, 10 new dungeons came to WoW Classic and more will be added later. MeinMMO tells you where you can enter the instances and what level you should have reached to do so.

Dungeons are a great way to get experience and loot quickly. With the huge rush to WotLK Classic right at release, you should be able to quickly find groups everywhere to master the instances.

Since WotLK Classic doesn’t have a dungeon finder like the previous version, you have to travel to all dungeons in the new expansion yourself. The entrances to the dungeons are spread throughout Northrend.

We sort them for you according to the required level. Bear in mind that this is the minimum requirement, which will give you quite a hard time nibbling on the dungeons. The recommended level is slightly higher.

Utgarde Castle (from level 67, recommended: 70-72)

Probably the first dungeon you will play in WotLK is Utgarde Castle. The dungeon is inhabited by hostile vrykul, who you must expel from their fortress.

Where is the entrance? You can find Utgarde Castle in the area of ​​the same name in the center of the Howling Fjord. Here’s how to get to Howling Fjord and Borean Tundra.

The Nexus (from level 67, recommended: 71-73)

The Nexus is likely to be your first instance when you start in Borean Tundra. The way there is a bit more difficult than at Utgarde Castle.

If the dungeons are still too difficult for you, you should collect some equipment from professions and quests or level up. With a higher level, the instances become easier. Ideally, you should even run several laps with the same group if things are going well. Tips for the level phase can be found here:
