Wintergrasp is a world PvP zone located just West of Dalaran, near the center of the continent of Northrend. Players in the area will always be flagged for PvP while they are in the zone, even for PvE servers. Getting to the zone can be a little tricky as there is no way to run there from another zone on the ground. However, you can enter the zone by flying, or being teleported there a few different ways.
Wintergrasp is an important zone to Wrath of the Lich King, as the faction who controls is also gains access to the Vault of Archavon Raid. The raid features straightforward boss fights that are added in different content phases. Further, by participating in the Battle for Wintergrasp regularly, you will gain access to items you can not acquire elsewhere.
Portals in Dalaran spawn next to the Wintergrasp Battlemasters in either the Alliance or Horde quarters of the city when your faction control the PvP Zone. These NPCs will also inform you of when the next battle for Wintergrasp will occur.
Enter By Joining the Queue
The Battle for Wintergrasp will occur on a rolling 3 hour schedule, giving you the chance to participate in PvP in the zone multiple times a day. You can enter the zone by joining the queue for the PvP battle which becomes available 15 minutes before the battle starts. Once you enter then zone you can acquire your faction’s flight path, and return whenever you please.
The minimum level to enter Wintergrasp through the battleground queue is level 75.
Flying to Wintergrasp
Once players have traveled to Wintergrasp the first time, they are able to pick up the flight path from their corresponding camps and return from a connecting flight path at any time.
Players of any level who are trained in Cold Weather Flying can get to the zone on their own their own accord easily. From Dalaran, the flight takes no more than a few minutes. However, you are only able to enter Wintergrasp by flying if your faction controls the zone.
