Shard of Hate
Introduced with GU44, this is a Raid instance for high-powered level 80 x4 raid forces.


  • You must be at least level 75 to enter this zone.
  • You have a temporary lockout of 30 minutes upon entering the zone. If you zone out, you cannot get back in for the next 30 minutes. Past that, normal rules applies for persistent zones.

Enter from:

  • Neriak - at -249, 28, 169 by The Spires of Innoruuk
  • Nektulos Forest - at -1309, 48, -1509 just north of the Darklight Wood zone entrance.

The zone is divided into two sections:

  • The first is geared for a raid force capable of taking a Rise of Kunark tier 1 raid instance such as Protector's Realm. This section has 4 named bosses and many trash mobs.
  • The second is for extreme, Veeshan's Peak-capable raid forces and is not to be tested lightly.

This zone has a phenomenal drop-rate, frequently dropping Exquisite Chests from trash mobs. The picture at right shows 2 Exquisite Chests which dropped from a patron of hate and a scorn reaper, actually overlapping. Both chests contained a single level 80 Master. This same run got 1 more Master chest with less than an hour spent in the zone!
