World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Patch 2.4 PTR - Magister’s Terrace

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in BlizzPlanet Articles, World of Warcraft Guides

If you are doing a Magister’s Terrace run for first time, I recommend you to take all the quests from Shattered Sun NPCs before heading to the dungeon. There is a quest titled Magister’s Terrace which asks you to find an NPC named Tyrith. You will find him at the Halls of Theory. More of this later in this article.

The Magister’s Terrace is a 5-players dungeon located northeast of Quel’Danas Isle. You may find the zone-in heading east of the Shattered Sun Offensive boat following the coast. You will find a road going uphill to a big palace atop. That is the Magister’s Terrace.


After zone-in you will find both interior and outdoor portions inside the dungeon. You enter into the Observation Grounds—a bridge designed as an elevated garden with orange trees, and tall elven statues. There are four pulls in this area. A group by the gate, two individual groups at the center, and a group at the end. Your first target should be the healer, sheep, trap or sap the warlock—depending on your group line-up. A very important thing to look after in this dungeon is a strange cloud field that shows up most of the times you pull a mob group.

The first group is by the gate. A Sunblade Mage Guard at each side of the gate.

There is a patrol, which means you should pull the guards to the zone-in area to avoid aggro. The patrol has random spawn.  You will either face a Sunblade Physician and a Sunblade Magister; or a Blood Knight and a Warlock. Either patrol line-up you get, kill the healers first: Blood Knight or Physician.

At the center of the bridge are two separate groups of four mobs each. You can engage one group without aggroing the other, however be careful … they aren’t too far away. They do not have fear abilities which is good. Each of these groups contain the following line-up:

  • Sunblade Magister
  • Sunblade Blood Knight
  • Sunblade Warlock with imp
  • Sunblade Mage Guard

The second group has a replacement for the Warlock. It is a Physician. These mobs can be crowd controlled. The Sunblade Magister is immune to mind control, however.

The last group at the end of the Upper Observation Grounds is composed of four mobs. Two of them on each side of the gate. A Sunblade Warlock and Blood Knight on the right and a Sunblade Magister and Physician on the left. The best way to deal with your enemy is learning about their abilities and spells; and their potential damage and tricks up their sleeves. Below is a list of spells and abilities you should be aware of.
