Blackwing Lair can be found at the very height of Blackrock Spire and is a 40-man raid instance. It is there, where Nefarian began to unfold the final stages of his plan to murder Ragnaros and lead his army to Azeroth. To this end, he has recently begun efforts to bolster his forces, much as his father Deathwing had attempted to do in ages past.
In order to zone quickly into Blackwing Lair, there is a short attunement quest to complete:
- Loot Blackhand’s Command from Scarshield Quartermaster. If you’re standing in front of the instance portal to Blackrock Spire, look right, and he’s at the end of that hallway if you keep going straight.
- Right-click it to receive the quest Blackhand’s Command.
- Touch the Orb of Ascension behind General Drakkisath in Upper Blackrock Spire.
In the future, simply click on the Orb of Command in Blackrock Mountain to zone into Blackwing Lair.
