Serpentshrine Cavern Attunement

tbc classic serpentshrine cavern attunement guide

Thanks for taking a look at our guide on completing your Serpentshrine Cavern attunement process! Located in Zangarmarsh, Serpentshrine Cavern is one of two raids released in Phase 2 of The Burning Crusade Classic. Spanning just six boss encounters, it may seem short, but the difficulty associated with this raid will outweigh the number of bosses for sure. Before we can step foot into Serpentshrine Cavern, however, we have to complete the attunement process.

The attunement to enter Serpentshrine Cavern isn’t as bountiful as the one to enter Karazhan but it does provide more challenge since we’ll need to enter two Tier 4 raids and a heroic dungeon to complete it.

Attunement Process

We’ll first have to venture into The Slave Pens on Heroic mode, and find Skar’this the Heretic, who we will find locked in a cage shortly after defeating the first boss, Mennu the Betrayer.

After talking with him, accept the quest, The Cudgel of Kar’desh, which will require you to obtain an Earthen Signet and Blazing Signet.

Depending on your raiding schedule, these next two steps may be reversed for you. We’ll be entering Gruul’s Lair with the intention of killing Gruul the Dragonkiller, in order to loot the Earthen Signet from him.

We’ll then venture into Karazhan with the intention of killing Nightbane and looting the Blazing Signet.

After these tasks are completed, you’ll venture back into The Slave Pens on Heroic mode and speak with Skar’this the Heretic once more, turning in The Cudgel of Kar’desh. Once you successfully turn in the quest Skar’this the Heretic will cast The Mark of Vashj on you, allowing you to enter Serpentshrine Cavern.
