WoW Classic Dungeon Levels Overview

A quick reference to WoW Classic's dungeon levels and abbreviations.

Diving into instances is a big part of the World of Warcraft experience, especially in WoW Classic where everything's a little slower. The recommended dungeon levels are a little different from the game's expansions and the contents, well, you might have a tough time all around.

This guide has two purposes.

  1. To show the game's recommended level ranges for each dungeon
  2. To teach you the abbreviations used for each one

That said, you do not have to strictly be within the recommended level range for every instance. It depends on your group, and it's very possible you'll get pulled into instances at levels not within the ranges listed here. Trust your groups to hold each other up and do your best.

Additionally, not every vanilla dungeon is in Classic just yet. Instances after Molten Core are locked behind the game's upcoming phases, with Blackwing Lair and Zul'Gurub coming in Phase 2. These are not included in this list for now.

Classic annoying Sega kid, still hasn't let go of Sonic and prefers arcade-style games. Final Fantasy and SaGa rock whatever it is you like, chump.
