Upper Blackrock Spire was originally the raid part of Blackrock Spire; in Patch 4.0.3a it was converted into a 5-man dungeon.


See: Blackrock Spire


Before the release of the Patch 3.0.8 expansion, the raid required completion of the quest N [57] Seal of Ascension, to acquire the Seal of Ascension. However, this is no longer needed, as the door that leads to Upper Blackrock Spire is now permanently open.

To enter the Upper Spire, use the same entrance as the Lower Spire and follow the left wall as you enter. You will ascend a small flight of stairs and into a hall with smaller side chambers. Each chamber is filled with mobs and a small glowing rune. Defeating the mobs in a chamber will deactivate a rune and once each has faded, a double door at the back of the hall will open.
