Kurn's Guide to Lower Blackrock Spire

Okay, after much hemming and hawing and many false starts and far too long spent in the editing stage, I think I’ve pieced together an okay two-part guide to Lower Blackrock Spire. It’s done the way we used to do LBRS back in the day and is still a really efficient way to clear out the instance. Included are Warmaster Voone, Shadow Hunter Vosh’gajin, Mother Smolderweb, Urok Doomhowl, Halycon, Gizrul the Slavener, Overlord Wyrmthalak, High Lord Omokk and how to obtain and complete the quests Bijou’s Belongings, Urok Doomhowl and how to get you started on the Seal of Ascension questline. Note that there are other quests in here, including the one for the Worg Pup and Mother’s Milk, neither of which are covered here.

Apologies for how dark the videos seem on YouTube. On my computer, they’re both much, much brighter, so I’m not really sure how to deal with that. I would try re-rendering them and re-uploading them, but I know if I don’t post these now-ish, it’ll be another couple of weeks before I bother trying again.

So, here we go. :)

  1. If you’re editing in Windows Movie Maker, there’s an effect you can use called “Brightness, Increase.” If not… Can’t help you. ;) More feedback after the videos are over.

  2. Hmmm I never take any of those shortcuts (not having cleared it at level 60)! Now I’m confused :(

    Nice video though. Good think you included how to get there from Burning Steppes because everytime I’ve died in BRS I’ve been ported to the GY there, not up near Morgan’s Vigil.

  3. In hindsight, I’m sure you already knew there was an effect for that. I’m just a nub.

    Overall, I liked them! Definitely going to bug you to make more if you don’t do them on your own. ;)

  4. X – Yeah, but the issue isn’t the brightness on the video — the issue is the brightness of the video ON YOUTUBE. Something happened in the processing to screw with my brightness. CURSE YOU, YOUTUBE! (I use Adobe Premiere Elements, btw.)

    Anyways, glad you enjoyed. :) I’m planning on tackling Strat Live next. TIMMEHHHHHHHH!

    Cassandri – Uh oh, was it that I just do things that drastically different or am I being very unclear?

    Also, yeah, I knew I had to include getting there from Burning Steppes, too. Too many people don’t know the run from there. It’s a new graveyard that was added around Wrath (or 3.0?) and so a lot of people who were used to the Thorium Point GY run never knew about the Burning Steppes entrance. :)

  5. Wow, thanks for this! Really nice guide, even if I do know the place like the back of my hand. I certainly hope that a lot of people will see these vids because it’s always so hard to explain in party chat how to do the corpse run. Knowing it yourself is one thing, showing other people, is another.

  6. X – yessir, you are a nub. ;D

    Kaboomski – if even one person learns the corpse run to Blackrock Spire by virtue of this video, I will consider it a success!
