Participating in the Blackwing Lair raid requires you to have quick access to the raid instance without having to slog your way through Upper Blackrock Spire. To this end you will need to Attune yourself to BWL. This, in turn, requires you to complete the quest Blackhand’s Command, which itself requires a bit of legwork to even acquire. Fortunately for you, this guide shows you how to achieve all of these tasks in three easy steps!
The Scarshield Quartermaster
First things first, you need to get the quest in the first place. Head over to Blackrock Mountain and find the Scarshield Quartermaster. He’ll be hanging out with a bunch of other Scarshield cronies, just down a right hand corridor, outside the entrance from Blackrock Spire itself. You may notice an Orb here, this is important for later on. Dispatch the quartermaster, retrieve Blackhand’s Command from his corpse and read it. Accept the quest it offers.
Now that you have the quest Blackhand’s Command, get a group together and just ruin the afternoon of everyone inside Upper Blackrock Spire, completely clearing the instance When you do, you will get access to General Drakkisath. Ruin his day in particular and once he’s been dispatched, you will be free to interact with Drakkisath’s Brand. Finish the quest and boom, you’re now attuned to Blackwing Lair.
The Orb of Command
This is the easiest step, by far. Just head back down to the entrance to Blackrock Spire and go down the same corridor you did to find the quartermaster. Remember that orb you may or may not have seen earlier? At the end of this corridor you’ll find the Orb of Command and can now use it to quickly and easily access Blackwing Lair.
Well that’s it, you are now fully attuned and have all the information you need to gain entrance to Blackwing Lair. Have fun stormin’ the castle!
