The Blackrock Foundry overlooking The Pit.

Blackrock Foundry is a raid instance introduced in Warlords of Draenor. It has 10 bosses, and serves as the source of Tier 17 gear. The entrance is in Gorgrond, and the raid was open on February 3, 2015.


The foundry has a shipyard where the dreadnaughts of the Iron Horde are forged and assembled before being sent to the Iron Docks.[1]

After the fall of Blackhand, the Iron Horde under the new leader, Gul'dan, retreated from the foundry to Iron Docks and from there to Tanaan.[2] It was still active as new munitions, cannons and supplies of parts for the Iron Reaver were being sent to Tanaan's Hellfire Citadel.[3][4][5]

Adventure Guide

This foundry was the ancestral home of the Blackrock orcs, wherein master smiths smelted and worked the impossibly hard ore that is the clan's namesake. Now, massive giants captured and broken by the Thunderlord heat the great forges, flamebenders of the Burning Blade imbue the ore with an inner fire, and engineers shape the slag according to otherworldly schematics. Warlord Blackhand's foundry is the center of the Iron Horde's military might, churning out the weaponry that will be used to raze Azeroth.



Only the unnatural heat of the Foundry furnace can smelt the Blackrock ore, essential to the might of the Iron Horde.

The Black Forge

Deep within the Blackrock Foundry, brutal and giant creatures temper and forge the machinery of war for the Iron Horde.

Iron Assembly

The extent of the Iron Horde's arms and armaments is a terrible sight to behold.

Blackhand's Crucible

Atop the Blackrock Foundry, Warlord Blackhand oversees his clan's ancestral home amidst searing heat that only he can bear.
