What does this information mean?

  • Entrance at: ( 0, -48, 726 ) /waypoint 0, -48, 726


The Bloodskull Orcs are expanding their base of operations, Bloodskull Valley, and filling it with troops and massive war machines. This surely is a sign that the Bloodskull are planning to launch a massive attack on Freeport and/or settlements in The Commonlands. A brave adventurer is needed to ensure that this doesn't come to pass!


The objective of this instance is to burn the various war machines while slaying as many orcs and troglodytes as possible. If you haven't already completed it, make sure to pick up Terithal's Revenge from Terithal right next to the entrance.

The two named monsters are:

  • Treasure Hunter Bakrok, part of a ring event located at Bloodskull Treasure Rock. ( -105, -39, 959 ) /waypoint -105, -39, 959
  • The Troglodyte Champion, part of a ring event located at The Bloodskull Arena. ( 162, -48, 770 ) /waypoint 162, -48, 770
    • In order to unlock the doors of The Bloodskull Arena you must first burn every war machine. See Terithal's Revenge for a list of the war machines' locations.
    • Warning: Do not jump into The Bloodskull Arena before you have burnt all the war machines or the ring event that spawns The Troglodyte Champion won't activate!
