How to Get to Deepholm in WoW Cataclysm Classic

Before You Go to Deepholm

Level Requirement: You need to be at least level 82 to enter Deepholm. If you haven't reached this level, it's recommended to complete quests in Mount Hyjal and Vashj'ir first, as these zones are intended to be tackled in a specific order with Deepholm being the third one.

Faction Capital: Once you're level 82, head to your faction's capital city - Stormwind for Alliance players and Orgrimmar for Horde players.

Steps to Enter Deepholm

    Go to Your Faction's Capital:

        Alliance: Stormwind

        Horde: Orgrimmar

    Locate the Command Board/Hero's Call Board:

        Stormwind: Found in the Trade District.

        Orgrimmar: Located in the Valley of Strength.

    Take the Appropriate Quest:

        Alliance: Look for the quest “Hero's Call: Deepholm!” on the Hero's Call Board.

        Horde: Look for the quest “Warchief's Command: Deepholm” on the Warchief's Command Board.

    Visit the Portal Location:

        After picking up the quest, head to the portal area in your faction's capital:

            Stormwind: Head to the Earthshrine in the Eastern Earthshrine area.

            Orgrimmar: Go to the Western Earthshrine, located near the Valley of Wisdom.

    Talk to the Portal Master:

        Speak with the portal master at the Earthshrine. They will assist you in opening a portal to the Maelstrom.

    Enter the Maelstrom Portal:

        Step through the portal to the Maelstrom. This will take you to a new area where you will find Thrall.

    Talk to Thrall:

        In the Maelstrom, locate and talk to Thrall. He will provide you with further instructions and help you get to Deepholm.

    Ride the Wyvern:

        After speaking with Thrall, mount the Wyvern next to him. This Wyvern will fly you down into the Maelstrom and take you directly to Deepholm.

Setting Up a Return Portal

One of the initial quests in Deepholm will involve opening a portal back to your faction's capital. Ensure you complete this quest early on so you can travel back to your capital without needing to go through the Maelstrom again.


    Be level 82.

    Head to your faction's capital (Stormwind or Orgrimmar).

    Pick up the Deepholm quest from the Command Board/Hero's Call Board.

    Go to the Earthshrine and talk to the portal master.

    Use the portal to the Maelstrom.

    Talk to Thrall and ride the Wyvern to Deepholm.

    Complete the quest to open a return portal to your capital.

By following these steps, you'll be well on your way to exploring the depths of Deepholm in WoW Cataclysm Classic. The more WoW Cataclysm Classic Gold you get, the better the gaming experience will be.
