Guide To Uldaman

Updated Mon, Mar 03, 2008 by Ratboy

Uldaman is located in the north of the Badlands, just south of Loch Modan. It is a medium sized instance for both Alliance and Horde players, however it is more easily accessible to Alliance players as it requires travel through enemy territory to get to it if you are Horde.

Time

Uldaman take approximately 90 minutes to 2 hours, depending on party level and skill.

Levels

Uldaman is meant for characters level 44-50ish. You can continue to make loot and experience runs through Uldaman to about level 50, but after that the experience gains are not worth the effort.

The MOBs in Uldaman range from 37 elite to 46 elite. The quest MOBs are up to 48 elite.

Map

We have put together a map that shows the layout of Uldaman and marks the location of all the key named MOBs and the key locations. The map can be found here.

Tactics

Since it a fairly long Instance to run through, and there are various quests and special mobs to kill, it is obvious that there are certain tactics that need to be followed in order to succeed in the Uldaman.

The MOBs in Uldaman range from 37-45 elite and are generally found in groups of 4-5, with the occasional group of 5 or even 6. You will note that the levels of the MOBS increase dynamically as you go further into the Instance.

Being a level 44-50 instance, with the MOBs being 37-46 elite you will HAVE to work together as a team, especially if you are at the low end of the level scale. Most players in the correct level range will not be able to handle an elite MOB of their level or higher on their own. The best tactic to deal with this is to designate a single player to pull MOBs and be careful to not pull anything other than what is planned. If you are the puller always plan the pull carefully. This means, watching for patrols, movement of MOBs, and party health and mana. If you do these things even a party of all 45-47 characters stands an excellent chance at finishing the instance.

There are several key tactical issues to keep in mind for this specific instance.

In Uldaman it is critical to know the MOBs your fighting. For example, the Earthen later on in the Instance are immune to several types of magic, including polymorph and fire. Later on, the Troggs begin to deal a large amount of damage (in the area of about 600 a hit to an all cloth wearer), so it is important to let the Tank keep agro on these specific MOBs.

If you chose to go through the Front door of Uldaman, then it is suggestible to get both pieces of the Staff of Prehistoria, so that you can fight the Giant Ironaya. To get the staff you will need to collect both pieces, the first one off the chest located by the “Lost Dwarves” who will need to be fought if you are Horde. The second piece is located off the boss MOB Revlosh, right before the room where you summon the giant.

Another thing to be wary of in the Instance, is the mine pits full of Scorpids. These scorpids come in a mass (about 10-15) and need to be AoE to death or they will overrun the party. Be sure to keep the Mage/Warlock healed and everything should go good against these mobs.

When it comes to the later MOBs (the Earthen + Golems before Archaedes) please be sure to deal with the casters first, then the golem, and finally the remaining Earthen. The Earthen casters have powerful fire spells teamed with curses that will increase fire

Party Composition

As this is still a mid level instance, party composition plays a huge factor. Player levels will come into play as a close second. You need to ensure that you have at least a one player at the upper end of the level range to help out against the named MOBs, preferably the Tank (or warrior) of the group, and one leather/cloth/mail wearer, to allow maximum loot division.

As in any group you will want someone in the party that can heal (preferably Druid or Priest) and someone who can tank. Extra DPS is needed against some of the higher level MOBS and named MOBS of the Instance (ex. Archaedes) as they will turn into drawn out fights that healers won’t be able to last with the opposing DPS hitting the party. This is why it is key to have at least 2-3 DPS classes along.
