The Dark Iron dwarf are an allied race that appeared in the supplement Battle for Azeroth.
The Dark Iron dwarfs are a fiery and determined clan and have regularly had disagreements with members of other clans.
After the failed rebellion in Stalgorn erupted into the War of the Three Hammers, many dwarves of Dark Iron fought on the side of Ragnaros.
While some dwarves swore allegiance to Queen Regent Moira Taurissan, many refused to submit to her and went their own way.
Now the Alliance seeks the wisdom of the united Black Iron clan to fight the power of Azerite and get help in the war against the Horde.
How to unlock the Dark Iron dwarf?
To unlock the creation of this allied race, the player will need to:
- Purchase the Battle for Azeroth add-on.
- Complete the Alliance Military Campaign
- gain the Rapture with the 7th Legion
- Complete the Black Iron Dwarves scenario. Completing the scenario and completing the quest chain will give the player not only the achievement Allied races: dwarves of the Black Iron clan, but also the transport Hound of the Black Iron clan’s bowels
- After unlocking an allied race, players will be able to swap their existing character’s race for a Dark Iron Dwarf
If players pump a newly created character of the Dark Iron Dwarf from level 20 to 120 without using the instant boost, they will receive the Dark Iron Clan’s Legacy achievement and the Transmogrification Set. This set is the classic Dark Iron Clan dwarf armor from the Deep of the Black Mountain dungeon, only more detailed. The set can be used by all characters of this race.
Dark iron dwarf leveling guide
At this point, all zones are scaled to the level of the character, so the choice is wide enough, and the player will be able to complete the storyline location without losing experience. Fans of achievements can be advised to swing different characters in different locations. The amount of experience a character gets will depend on the rest time and inherited items, but you can give a few general recommendations:
- At level 20, it’s worth going to Lok Modan and then moving to neighboring areas such as Swampland and Arathi Highlands. Then you can go to the Barren Lands, the Smoldering Gorge and the Blazing Steppes.
- Between Nordscale and Outland, you should choose Nordscale, it is more varied.
- Between Pandaria and Cataclysm, it’s better to swing in Pandaria, in the areas with Pandarian culture: Jade Forest, Valley of Four Winds, Creepy Wastes
- In Drenor, try to collect all the treasures – it brings a huge amount of experience, we recommend doing it with open flights on the continent
- For Legion, the best way is to go through all the central story chains in the 4 locations, remembering to take part in Legion invasions
- Battle for Azeroth is better to start by completing all of the story missions in 3 locations, go through a military campaign, and if necessary – to finish levels of additional tasks, of which there are plenty
- Hiking in dungeons is not the best way to pumping, it makes sense to go only in random dungeons
Until level 60 the Swamp, Barren Ground, Smoldering Gorge, and Blazing Steppes locations can help steepen players in dwarf history
In Cataclysm, take a look at the Twilight Highlands – there is a lot of dwarf lore, especially near Grim Bathol.
